Back home from RI… will be playing catch up

Okay, I’m officially back home from the Convention, but obviously spent the night with the family.  Got some school work to catch up on, then will try to play some catch up over the next few days.  I think I covered most of the new stuff at the Con, but I definitely want to talk about the Collectors’ Club round table, give more specific details about the Pursuit of Cobra figures, and I should probably get the PoC SuperPage revamp started.  😉
For anyone who frequented the page during the Con rampage, thank you very much.  I know I wasn’t all that current with the news and info as it happened, but a guy’s gotta have some fun at the Con, too.  And I did.  But we’ll leave all those gory details out of the web articles, I should think.
A few guys out there will know what I’m talking about.  😉
Thanks again to all the readers for making GeneralsJoes their “home”.  A lot of folks came up to me at the Con and expressed their thanks, appreciation, and let me know what they thought of the site, and for that I’m infinitely appreciative.  I’ll continue to try my hardest to make GJ worth your while.  I may not have the latest news up the second it breaks, but I’ll try to get as much info as possible, and put my own “fanboy” slant on it.
The rest of 2010 and into 2011 looks absolutely amazing from a Pursuit of Cobra perspective.  Where we go from there with G.I. Joe: Renegades is anyone’s guess, and it makes me a bit nervous, but regardless, G.I. Joe ain’t going anywhere any time soon.

Updated JoeCon Images – Pursuit of Cobra for 2011

Wow.  You know, I thought the 2010 Pursuit of Cobra product looked pretty bad ass.  Turned out I hadn’t seen anything yet.  Holy crap.
The figures they showed us today are simply in SANE.  Yes, it’s another Destro.  Yes, it’s another Duke, and another Snake Eyes, and yes, even another Storm Shadow.  But these figures absolutely ROCK.
Plus…  Low Light.  Awesomeness.  A perfect blend of the 25th Anniversary style with the Pursuit of Cobra design aesthetic.  And hell!  Desert Scorpion, too.  Jeez!  Fantastic looking figures.  Check out the image flood below.

The only major down side with the Pursuit of Cobra is that it ends in Spring, 2011, to be replaced by the Renegades toyline in Fall, 2011.  Still, I’m going to enjoy the ride while it lasts!

Quick Hits – G.I. Joe: Renegades

I just got out of the Hasbro seminar and done with my volunteer duties, and before I take pics of the abso-freaking lutely AWESOME Pursuit of Cobra stuff for 2011 (and while I wait for my camera batteries to charge) I wanted to just drop some information about the new animated series coming to The Hub this fall.
These are some notes I jotted down that can be found at the “Read the rest of this entry” link below.

JoeCon 2010 Image Onslaught

I’m slowly getting caught up here with image preparation and such, so here is an onslaught of pictures that I’ve taken over the past couple of days.  Included here are images of the Hasbro tour, shots from the display cases today, etc…

JoeCon 2010 – Where the news at?

I know for it being a JoeCon weekend, GeneralsJoes has been noticably silent, but trust me that’s only because it’s been a very busy few days.  When not taking tours and volunteering for the club, I’m being dragged to restaurants and bars and forced to consume various amounts of food and liquids that are totally alien to me.  Trust me, after one of those sessions, you don’t want to see me typing.
Anyway…  news has been pretty quiet to date.  There’s not a whole lot more to report.  I’ve got photos of the showroom preparing to upload, but most of it is what we’ve seen before.
However…  Hasbro is kicking off their seminar tomorrow, and it promises to be full of new information about G.I. Joe: Renegades, other 2011 plans, and there should be some new product to check out as well.
Eagle eyed picture watchers have hopefully located a new Spirit figure in various diorama pictures already.  But if not…

Looks like he’s a combination of other parts, but a pretty awesome combination.  I promise more good stuff is coming, it just hasn’t hit yet.

JoeCon Z-Force Silver Mirage – Now with Images!

JoeCustoms forum member Kamakura has gotten his mitts on the Convention freebies already, and posted some nice images in this thread, which I’ve mirrored below.  Of most interest are the images of the absolutely kick-ass Z-Force Silver Mirage, and Interrogator without his helmet!
Folks hoping for some big mystery reveal might be a bit disappointed…the head looks fairly generic, though it does slightly resemble a 12″ figure.  Anyway, check out the images below.  This is just the tip of the iceberg as JoeCon weekend has officially begun!

It should be noted that the Lt. Stone figure there is a customized “Convention Exclusive” figure that Kamakura has produced.  Pretty sweet, eh?
Big thanks to Stealth Viper from JoeCanuck for the heads up!
