I figured I would give it a week to see the responses, and I'm currently in Vancouver for another week, and I am saddened but not surprised.

3!!  3 of us, all longtime members, are all that seems to be left keeping the lights on.  I'm sure there are a bunch of lurker members still hanging out, but it really is crazy to see how far things have gone down the rabbit hole.

Oh well, until something happens I will keep checking in from time to time.

My love for Gi joe is not the same as it used to be. I have since focused on my main passion which is science fiction. Even if Gi joe were to resurface in the toy aisles, I wouldn't embrace it all over again. I was never a fan of what was accomplished during the modern era. And the only thing I liked which was o-ring, doesn't mean that much to me anymore.

I still look back and remember the good old days of Canadian Joe Meet and joe Canuck. Some guys in Montreal got together to form a gi joe Montreal Meet, but I don't feel like a belong there. I'm that alien to gi joe now.

Speaking of pun intended, I enjoy collectiong Kenner Aliens and Neca Aliens these days.

I also go to shows held in Mississauga Ontario, and connect often again with Neodragon Knight and Dodge822, longtime friends since joecanuck. In Montreal, I'm still in touch with Snake Eyes On a Plane.

I'm not even writing my fan-fic any more. I got carried away with two games on my tablet most of last year and this year I've started writing a superhero story that's a pastiche of the DC universe. (Although even that's been backburnered for now)

I still look in daily though...

So I figured I would start a thread just to see how things are going.

Obviously GI Joe is at one of it's lowest points in the history of the brand.  No toyline, no show, and talk of another movie possibly being worked on but no signs of anything happening.  Hell not even a SDCC exclusive toy like the last few years.  Thankfully the comics are still going, but that seems to be all there is right now.

As for Joecanuck, well I think we (those of us still checking in) can safely say that it is the same here.  I personally still check in from time to time, but I no longer check daily like I used  up until earlier this year.  I miss the old days of course, but I understand why the site has gone so quiet.

I would love it if Hasbro could pull a surprise like they just did with a new round of G1 reissues for the transformer line, on old school packaging.  Do the same thing with GI Joe, even though most of the ARAH molds are gone.  It would be nice, but I know it won't happen due to lack of support, and the lack of interest in selling"war" toys.  Especially without a corresponding media tie-in.

Anyway, anyone still out there who wants to chime in with an opinion?

Is it just me or is there very little ARAH on eBay right now and what's on there is crazy expensive?

the Oktober Guard aren't active anymore, too bad because they could take out the spam hackers.

Disabled registrations again.  Tired of dealing of the Russian troll factory.   Just like your leader, you have tiny dicks.
