Saw the pic of Dusty and was impressed.  Also cool to see Crystal Ball finally getting some modern love.

Sadly I won't be getting a subscription.

Thanks, it really is nice and a great example of why the 2007 reboot was so great for the toy line and collectors. 

It's a shame that Hasbro never got around to more releases and we've had this to stick with the club for that.

Finally from Fan Expo thanks to a friend.  It is a beautiful thing to behold it brings me right back to all the stuff that I love about GI Joe.

The best part is I didn't have to buy off of eBay and pay ridiculous prices in shipping and customs. 

It was 80 bucks plus tax and considering it was only $50 US that's not too bad.

WOW!!!!!

Hasbro has finally done an exclusive that is above and beyond what I thought they could ever do.  Add in that it will only be $50 US and it is incredible!!!!  I don't really collect Joe anymore since there is nothing at retail, but this is a must buy for me, even at the ridiculous after market price we here in Canada will get stuck paying.  Here is a link:

So what does everyone (anyone?) think of the con exclusives?

Nice to see a Laser-Viper 3 pack.  Also.....BACKSTOP!!!!!  Not a fan of his helmet design, or making him a parachutist as a figure, but glad to see him getting some more love.  Also liking Deejay, but not sure where Cobra Corrosao comes from, but he is fugly. 

Not liking the colour scheme on the BATS Jetpacks.  Love the Cobra LAW freebie.  The Sky Serpent is ok, but not a fan of the mold/vehicle.  I always thought it should have been a much bigger vehicle to hold multiple figures.  The Marauder Snowmobiles are fun and a good choice of colour scheme.  Finally the Conquest as the Vector Jet is an interesting choice.  I like it, but I don't know if it is because it is the Conquest mold, or because it uses the Vector Jet colour scheme so we'll.

Not really collecting Joe anymore, but. I keep up with the news.

So far this is a nice update to the team, but the sheer number of BATS in the set seem like they just gave up on anything in depth.

What is more interesting to me will be the vehicles.  I can't wait to see what they do.

Happy New Year!!

Here's hoping that Hasbro's new shared universe (and IDW's) leads to great new things in 2017 for Joe.

Forgot to add...First post if 2017!!!!!  Haha

Yeah it blows.

Especially since TRU Canada blew it over ordering the 50th and as such we got nothing last year and now nothing from the limited figures TRU US is getting this year.

Honestly I don't get why Hasbro doesn't push repaints of subgroups (vehicle and figure) that were never done during the 25th/modern era.  Instead they keep doing weird colour/be choices, especially for vehicles.

I loved the Sky striker, was blah about the Sky Sweeper since I hate the changes they made to the Firebat mold and was flabbergasted that they would pull that God awful Sky Sweeper mold out to do the Hydra.

Most of the figures were nice but not of any interest to me and the jump packs were neat, but not almost $60 US neat.

I'm torn about the club still doing Joe until 2018.  On the one hand they still provide new updates on figures from ARAH that Hasbro never got to over the years, but on the other hand it would indicate that Hasbro still doesn't have plans for Joe until 2019.

Also who knows what that means for Hasbro's branded conventions that were trademarked earlier this year.

Finally, I liked that Hasbro is still pumping out a few figures.  A shame there were no vehicles.  Especially like the female trooper and the new guy (forget his name).  At least something remains of Joe on the shelves of retail, even if it is TRU.

is it definite they're not doing Joe Con/the club going forward?

Well this was the last Botcon that was done by FunPub last week and Hasbro has trademarked the name HasCon.  So I would assume that the rumours about the Joecon are true as well.

Check your local Walmart.  Lots of reports of people finding wave 4 deluxes.  (Prowl, Ironhide, Sunstreaker, Mirage)
