Action Man’s 50th Anniversary brings big things for British hero

Most G.I. Joe collectors are intimately familiar with the fact that across the pond, our Real American Hero (and the 12″ version that came before) were introduced under a slightly different moniker.

Action Man hit the ground running over in Europe back in the 60s and is celebrating his 50th Anniversary this year in a pretty huge way.

In Loveland, Colorado today at the 2016 G.I. Joe Convention, Dave Tree, reknowned Palitoy and Hasbro UK expert (as well as the mastermind behind UK G.I. Joe & Transformers convention Roll Out Roll Call), revealed some exciting plans for Action Man throughout the rest of 2016 and into 2017.  He held a fantastic panel and has graciously allowed GeneralsJoes to display his panel slides RIGHT HERE.  This is awesome, and I’m honored that Dave is willing to let me do this, because there is some pretty exciting breaking news here.

In 2016, Action Man will be celebrating his 50th Anniversary with SIX new products, all 12″ action figures, very reminiscent of original figures from his original years of release.  Looking forward, there are TEN proposed products for 2017 in the UK as well.

Along with this, Action Man is poised to make his debut in comics with IDW Publishing, playing a large role in the upcoming Revolution story line.  Along with all of this, some pretty exciting news as Action Man will actually be launched into space!

This coming Sunday, June 19th, the Mercury 10 Action Man will be sent up to orbit as a celebration of his 50th Anniversary.  Dave Tree revealed all of this for the FIRST TIME at JoeCon today, and again, has kindly offered his slide deck to GeneralsJoes, which is mirrored below.

Regardless of whether or not your an American G.I. Joe fan or a European Action Man fan, the two brands have a ton of shared history and it’s pretty fantastic to see how Action Man’s 50th Anniversary is being celebrated.  Folks who love the vintage aesthetic and long for some new and exciting 12″ product be prepared, because some great stuff is no the horizon!

Huge thanks to Dave Tree again, and check out all of the mirrored images below.  If you like what you see here, please try and make plans to attend Roll Out Roll Call, one of the most exciting international toy conventions out there, and a sure fired source for one hell of a good time.

Surprises in store at Roll Out Roll Call 2015?

We are less than a week from the UK’s biggest and best G.I. Joe/Transformers Convention, Roll Out Roll Call, in Southampton!  Attendees have come to expect a fantastic show with lots of great dealers, great insight from special guests and lots more.

Well, this year, things might be getting even MORE interesting.

Fun Publications’ own Pete Sinclair will be in attendance at Roll Out Roll Call this year, and will be hosting panels to talk about what’s coming up for the Transformers AND G.I. Joe Collectors Clubs!  Time will tell if there will be any special news or reveals from the show, but it seems to be they wouldn’t be doing panels if they didn’t have some fun new stuff to talk about.

If you live anywhere near Southampton, UK, this could be a very unique opportunity to come to a show and soak up this fun hobby and enjoy the company of a GREAT crew of diehard G.I. Joe (and Transformers, and Masters of the Universe, etc…) fans.  Everything I hear about the show is good.

Check out all the details at All The Cool Stuff or on Facebook and I’ve mirrored some info below as well.  This should be another great show!

So on top of the amazing exclusives that were available for pre-order atRoll Out Roll Call, The UK Transformers, G.I. Joe & Action Force Show, the Transformers Collectors’ Club (Official) and G.I. Joe Collectors’ Clubhave a few special surprises AND PRODUCT REVEALS in store.

Total Retaliation book to debut at Roll Out Roll Call 2014!

For folks who haven’t been following along on Facebook, a couple of enterprising G.I. Joe fans have been working on a great guide for the G.I. Joe: Retaliation toyline entitled “Total Retaliation“. The book will focus on the toys with the G.I. Joe: Retaliation theme. As we all know, there were some fantastic action figures and vehicles under the Retaliation banner, pulling from all era’s and generations of G.I. Joe. Total Retaliation features figures, file cards, and some incredible looking diorama shots.

Over on their Facebook Page, the Total Retaliation creators have been posting a ton of fantastic “in progress” shots featuring their page layouts, diorama snippets and other great tidbits of information.

We’ve just learned that the Total Retaliation book will debut at Roll Out Roll Call in Southampton, England on October 11th and 12th! Featuring an exclusive cover and some great incentives, this will be our first opportunity to purchase a physical copy of the Total Retaliation book. I’d imagine they’ll go on sale shortly thereafter.

Keep up with the latest news on Total Retaliation on their Facebook Page, and make sure you’re staying up to date with Roll Out Roll Call, too, as they celebrate 50 years of G.I. Joe and 30 years of Transformers on October 11th and 12th at the Jury’s Inn in Southampton, UK! All of those details can be found right here. Check out some of the great images from Total Retaliation below.
