Canadian convention sets not listed on Yojoe
« on: May 13, 2010, 08:27:06 PM »

Hey guys,

Since our Canadian exclusive convention sets are Hasbro approved, why are they not listed on Yojoe (http://www.yojoe.com/action/int/ and http://www.yojoe.com/vehicles/all/)?

This would be a nice way to promote the Canadian convention and its exclusives... I mean, they are Hasbro approved with official logo on it. So, it's not like other customs figs made by someone...

How strange you posted this as I'm in the process right now of taking images for it.

Images were requested last year, but time didn't allow me to actually sit down and take all the photos needed.

The Comic, which was in the con set - is posted at yojoe.

Great! I tried myself to take pictures of the set, but with my old digital camera, the flash always reflect on the HATE Tank so I can't make good pictures...

Can't wait to see yours!

I had actually pm'd an offer to send in pics for it, but didn't get a response, but I didn't really know who to contact about it...  I'm glad this is in process.

Yes, he did. It was in our own newsletter. It's been going on for MONTHS now....
Since January, I think.

Usually Red Claw is the man to ask on that.  When I submit photos that's who I contact.

I've tried the same thing. I've sent a msg to RedClaw about an idea I had (Creating a new section called Fan Made Group Projects on YoJoe) where we could find the CanJoeCon figures, the CustomCon figures, Sacramento G.I. Joe show figures (BrownWaterWarriors) etc.. But I think he is too busy.....yeah sure! Here's the original e-mail I sent to him (sorry for the bad english  ;D):

Hi Terry!
Thanks for the fast reply! Yeah, I don't think it's good to put custom figures through ``normal`` YoJoe pages neither! This site is dedicated for production pieces only and it's perfect like that. Imagine if everybody could put his custom works on YoJoe! I don't want this site to loose it's professional side. There's already many sites dedicated for custom figures too! But that's not my point; there are figures out there that are known by the majority of the G.I. Joe community around the world (I know it's a debate right now on YoJoe boards) like JoeCanuck convention exclusives, CustomCon figures, Sacramento G.I. Joe show figures (BrownWaterWarriors) etc.. Those are all fan made figures for some group projects. There's no mention of these figures on YoJoe, sure they are not production pieces but they are indeed collectibles. These pieces could be put in the Collectible Archive under a new theme like FanMadeGroupProjects or something else (I know you're better than me for that!!!) It would be nice to see each of these rare figures getting the YoJoe treatment (a page for each of them with pictures, weapons, filecards, parts description.. Another thing is that Larry Hama has done some work and gave his OK for the FuryForce set so it gives it another ``official`` touch to it! These figures are a part of the G.I. Joe history!
Well, think about it, I think it's a pretty nice idea personnaly (sure, it's mine) ;-)
Like I said earlier, I'm ready to send you plenty of photos from the set itself and all it's contents (even the Larry Hama's Spook original artwork)
Answer me soon and give me some news!

Eric
