G.I. Joe Collectors’ Club teases some comic art from Convention 2012 comic

Further cementing the whole Oktober Guard Convention 2012 theme, the G.I. Joe Collectors’ Club has revealed a piece of art from their convention comic over on their Facebook page.  The artist has not been revealed, but the penciled work is clearly Daina from the aforementioned Oktober Guard.  Looks very nice!

Botcon will be capturing most of Fun Publications’ attention over the next few weeks, but soon enough the road will be paved for Joe Con in New Orleans, and I can’t wait for things to get rolling!  Check out the mirrored image below.

Don’t forget to keep your eyes on for the latest in Convention 2012 intel!

Final figure in the 2010 Convention Set revealed!

We all knew this one was coming, and here he is!  Using the torso from the ’91 Snake Eyes and a whole lot of coolness… it’s The Interrogator!
Great figure choice, I can’t wait to see how they integrate it into the Cobra/Red Shadow mythology.  I’m sure I don’t have to tell most of you how much of an Interrogator fanboy I am.  Love it.
Check it out right here!
He’s slightly more battle ready, but is very faithful to the Interrogator look…the helmet is pretty interesting, too, definitely looks like new tooling.  Wonder who’s under the mask…

Some more information from the G.I. Joe Collectors’ Club regarding the souveniers

Sorry for the influx of G.I. Joe Collectors’ Club related news, but I’ve had some time to dig through the site, so I’m uncovering a few things…  I’ve seen many questions all over the ‘net regarding the Joe Con, so I just wanted to remind folks to check out the FAQ Page for updates to all your questions and concerns.

Also, “The Commander” has posted some answers to a few questions on the GIJCC Message boards as well:

“1) No fuchsia colors

2) Viper has version 2 “fixed” arms

3) Hasbro limited our 25A mold usage and several of your suggested figure options were “In Production” at the time.”

So…it sounds like using the 25A tooling was a Hasbro dictation?  I know it’s easy to cast stones (I certainly have cast my share this year) but I guess we should remember there are several legal and production hoops that the Club has to weave through during the Convention planning process that none of us have any idea about.

I still stand by my opinion on the Con Exclusives this year, but it is at least some food for thought.
