But really, is anything about this day happy?
Today marks the day that Hasbro ComicCon exclusives go on sale on HasbroToyShop.com, and it’s a day that lives in infamy.
Typically these items go on sale around 9:30 – 10:30am Eastern Time, but only the gods of HasbroToyShop themselves can know for sure.
I know in years’ past, folks typically put a search string in for “SDCC” or “ComicCon” and kept hitting refresh to get a head start on when those categories might have product. I have no idea if this will work, but if you want to give it a shot;
Again, no promises that any of those search algorithms will help… but it’s wortha shot.
Just as a reminder – the Desert Duel ComicCon Exclusive set was a joint Toys “R” Us/ComicCon exclusive and will NOT be available on HasbroToyShop. If you’re preparing your F5 fingers today it’ll be for the Crimson Strike set or the Slaughter Marauder/Iron Grenadier Kre-O set.
Gentlemen, start your refreshing!

Sorry, Internet, we took a forced sabbatical for a little while as some technical issues nearly wiped out Episode 92 from existence! Thankfully Gary’s technical wizardry pulled it back from the brink, and we have it ready to go.
This episode is absolutely chock full. You want to hear about vintage G.I. Joe? We got Kirk Bozigian for that! You want to hear about stuff rolling with Boss Fight Studio? Andrew Franks is actually one of the co-hosts! You want to hear about some other cool projects from G.I. Joe fans? Chris Sims and Chad Bowers lay the hammer about Down, Set, Fight!
There is literally something for everyone in this one. Check out Episode 92 on our Podbean Page, or embedded below, and don’t forget to check the show notes!
This press release hit my email box this morning, with the G.I. Joe Collectors Club officially announcing the parachute drop for the 2013 G.I. Joe Convention in Indianapolis! One key surprise was immediately evident. The parachute figure this year will be a KRE-ON.
For those of us who are into Kre-O sets and figures this is a pretty cool twist, although I will say part of me was looking forward to a typical 4″ G.I. Joe parachute figure as well. Regardless, it will be very interesting to see what the Collectors’ Club has up their sleeve for Kre-O at JoeCon this year.

The two largest G.I. Joe Kre-O sets from the first series caused some mixed reactions with me…some very positive, but some not so much. You’ll have to check out the reviews to see which was which.
