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.

Also with 3D printing now a thing imagine what they could have made themselves!!

I recently saw on YouTube that someone on Facebook has files for 3D printing a 6" scale Skyhawk.  It looks great, a near perfect copy of the original 3 3/4" version. 

Apparently he is offering to either print it (not sure how much), or sell you the file for $20.

Yeah they could probably have done some great collaborations.

Also it is a shame since Joe seems to be on the uptick again.  Hopefully this time the media will be high quality and allow for a more sustain presence.

Scored another Baroness/Coil at my local TRU today.  Must have found some stock.  Lucky me.

Flint and Lady Jaye are starting to ship from EB Games so I imagine they will be on shelves when everything opens up again.

Cheers mate!

Thanks for helping me to keep the lights on!!  Hahaha

I went a little crazy yesterday and made myself pretty much the sole poster in most sections.

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.

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.

Oh, and someone who finds them could try and make an NFT of the newsletters!!!  You could make some real bank!!!

I mean Hasbro is considering it, why not someone here?  Lol

I know, long dead thread but yeah I have fond memories of the newsletters.  Would love to be able to see them again .  I'm sure some lapsed member has them still since the internet is forever.  ;)

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?

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
