These will only be sold at SDCC through Entertainment Earth. We will get some more high res images of the exclusives in just a bit. For now check them out and a huge thanks goes out to the Hasbro team for bring Joe back out. Also Kre-O is not dead!! More to come!!
We've got pictures straight from the Hasbro Panel at Joecon in Springfield! Read on to see what new releases are in store for us including a special surprise figure!
Joecon is kicking off and we have some inside peeks for you from our operatives in Springfield! Here's some looks at the GI Joe Behind the Lines panel, The Boss Fight Studio table and many of the customs entered into the custom contest!
By now if you're a registered attendee to this years GI Joe Convention, you have this item in hand. For the rest of the world, here is this years bonus package pickup item; an exclusive Sting Raider vehicle in Iron Grenadiers colors! This bonus item was given to the attendees who registered for the Real American Hero package "(3.75") and so far fans are loving this awesome little toy! We will have a review up the first of the week and for now, check it out below!
The Official GI Joe Con will kick off next Thursday (for attendees) and things are starting to look good! Now there has been a few grumbles emerging from the community (price increases, late registration, etc) but we are here to showcase some goods! While the con is not going off without a hitch we do have some pretty good toys to look forward to. Also take note that the con schedule has been posted and incase you missed it, Hasbro will be showing off new SDCC exclusive?(s) and a new line for Toys R Us. You can check out the complete schedule HERE.
While there are several things to look forward to at this years Joecon, there is one thing that stands out! Hasbro! Yes Hasbro will be in attendance at this years show. The last few years Hasbro has been MIA from the con and this year they will be there. The new Brand Manager Mark Weber will be on hand to (hopefully), show off some awesome new GI Joe products for 2015/ 2016. Word has come down that GI Joe will be absent from this years Toy Fair presentation so Joecon is the place to be! Usually at Toy Fair, Hasbro reveals general releases and no exclusives so it could be that GI Joe is not ready for mass retail release BUT they could have exclusives lined up. This is, by far, one of the most anticipated events from the Con. Besides Hasbro here are some of the events to look forward to come Con time.
