Hey guys,

Yesterday my son Christian and I were at Epcot Disney (Florida) and in the Canada section of the park they've got that 360 degree movie theater.   Any of you guys seen this?  The movie's name was "O Canada" I think, pretty cool with the movie screens all the way around the room.  It was hosted/narrated by Martin Short who apparently was born in Hamilton (reminded me of you guys).  It showed some other actors from Canada like Michael J Fox and William Shatner (didn't know that). 

Any of you guys seen this?

Speaking of my son, you guys may remember he was the one conked out asleep on the floor at the 2010 con while I was digging in Nova's accessory bins!  Mike took a picture and included it in the newsletter.  He has been recently diagnosed with a life threatening heart condition, we are praying for a miracle and asking God to lead us in making the right decisions.  The doctors are wanting to put in a difibulator.  I read that there was a new procedure done in Canada that seemed better (less invasive).  Anybody know anything about this?

Well, it's not a chrome SNAKE or MMS, but here's a little project I liked.  Dive team from the cartoon, Duke, Scarlett, bearded guy (there were actually two in the episode with the tube worms), and regular joe.  Oh yeah, and Shipwreck, remember that one in the closing credits?

Customs / Timbit goes to the CanJoeCon!
« on: May 02, 2011, 09:26:05 PM »
Hey guys, Timbit here, I thought I'd show you guys some of the photos from my trip to the Canadian Joe Con in 2010!

First, I had to ask off from work.


Then I stopped over at Niagara Falls.  Man, I must have been tired, I thought I saw Dr. Venom!


Ended up at the Hotel in Toronto where the convention was.  I digged the pool, by the way.




Grabbed some dinner.


The infamous line up!  7 hours!


Where's my set Mike?


Enjoyed digging through Nova's bins!


Met some old friends.


And enjoyed the cosplay.  (No Timbit?)


Got hungry again.


Back to Niagara Falls.  Lack of sleep and minimal nourishment must have caught up with me, I thought I saw Dr. Venom in the bathroom!

One question though, what is the deal with the foot shower?

Well, back to work...  These things aren't going to deliver themselves!

General Joe Talk / Hama GIJoe comic #161
« on: December 18, 2010, 08:19:05 PM »
Anybody reading the Hama continuation of the Marvel run?  I just read number 161 today and there were a number of interesting things in this one.  

*SPOILER ALERT*

For one, this issue is jam packed with characters and vehicles from the 80's in their classic looks.  With some notable and interesting exceptions, one of which was the new POC hisstank!  It wasn't just drawn in, it was mentioned in the dialogue as the "new hisstank."  Also, the careful look can spot the ROC Rhino (beside what I think is ironically the Mauler).  The 25th got some nods as well, the classic vamp is shown with the cables on the gun that were added for the 25th version, and Mainframe has the 25th style upper thigh with the knife sheath.  The cartoon got some play time also, which really surprised me.  Doc's reflective mirrors are shown in the pitt and Lady Jaye has the cartoon style (and 25th style) javelin backpack.  In a departure from all things previous, she fires the javelin like a missile launcher.  You can surely tell the artist knows joe, from POC to 25th and classic looks to the cartoon.  Toxo viper version 1 even makes and appearance!

General Joe Talk / Can this be fixed?
« on: August 15, 2010, 06:34:25 PM »
I traded for an 80's Dragonfly that has a problem.  The blades don't spin when the button is slid.  Also the whole assembly and rod pulls out of the chopper.  Is there any way to fix this thing?  I didn't see any screws to take out to get at the internal parts.
