General Joe Talk / Super7 GI Joe discussion
« on: July 13, 2021, 02:24:36 PM »
Might as well start a thread now.  No official word yet, but enough reveals to know that Super7 is doing Joe.  Early reveal seemed to point to Ultimates, ReAction and Cyborg offerings. 

Now we have Timber in what is obviously Ultimates scale.  While timing aside (who might skip this because of Hasbro's release?), It should be interesting.

Their Cyborg line will obviously start with a B.A.T.

ReAction will be interesting, but probably follow close to whatever they release in Ultimates.

Next post will be after this week's reveals.

I have recently seen some really great 3D printed items like a 6" scaled Sky Hawk and Devil Fish.  It got the bug going in me to either buy them, or start 3D printing myself.

So has anyone else, I guess that really just means you Sundance ;) thought about doing something?

What else would you do?  I see a lot of parts for vehicles being done, but I could see custom vehicles/colours being another big driver of 3D printing.

Hopefully that would also light a small fire under Hasbro to at least try and offer some other 6" scaled vehicles.  Start small, like a CLAW, JUMP or Trouble Bubble, and see what happens.

It's hard to believe that it is nearly a decade since the last show. 

It is funny to see the state of conventions today by comparison.  I mean Bitcoin/Joecon both folded up.  Hasbro made a lame attempt at an in house show, and now Covid has out the screws to most shows in general.

I hear rumours of a new "official" Botcon returning once the pandemic has subsided, but who knows.  I think outside of the big boys (SDCC, NYCC, etc) local shows are the future. 

I just don't see the numbers being there long term for brand specific cons much longer.  Yes Star Wars, Star Trek, and to some degree Transformers, are big enough properties to warrant shows.  However I think general shows are more likely to survive going forward where you can draw a large group of varying interests.

Alas the days of a CanJoeCon are but fond memories now.

Introductions / Greetings from Ottawa, by way of Toronto
« on: May 02, 2021, 09:17:15 PM »
So longtime member, but lapsed until very recently.

Never stopped collecting, but I'm sure like many others, moved away from Joes mostly (and on to other things/.

Anyway, getting back thanks to Classified, and now the movie.

Living life in Ottawa now after being a born, and bred, Toronto boy.

All the best to anyone, however few that is, reading the site.

JoeCanuck Trading Cards / Are trading cards still a thing?
« on: May 02, 2021, 09:07:36 PM »
Just wondering.

The new transformers kingdom toys are coming with collector cards, but really don't do much for me.

I do remember having a bunch of the Joecanuck cards years ago.  Sadly they are long gone, would have been easy to store, but I moved away from cards long ago.

Suggestions / Make a shout out to members?
« on: May 02, 2021, 08:59:00 PM »
Just spitballing an idea.

With the new movie about to hit, is there a way to get the attention of site members?  Maybe something to remind them the site is still here?

I know, I know the fandom is all but dead in Canada, especially for this site, but like I said just spitballing.  Would love to see some activity back on the site.

Obviously not a serious suggestion since it would basically be spam

U.S. & International / Retro, Classified and Snake Eyes Movie

I guess it really is only online sightings still for the US with the border closed.

Hopefully soon we can get back to border hunting.

Man it would be awesome to see a post about a sighting for up north, but I won't hold my breath.

Someone posted seeing 10 each of Zartan and Infantry at Pointe Claire EB back in March.

Let's hear from anyone.  Don't see much in the way of sightings for the maritimes pretty much anywhere.

On another site someone last posted in September 2020.
