I’m A G.I. Joe Fan But This…

G.I. Joe Con

is some different shit. There’s actually a G.I. Joe Con (think Comic-Con but just for the “Real American Hero”). Wow…

Last weekend (Aug. 13 – 16), hardcore Joe fans from around the world gathered in Kansas City for the 16th annual International G.I. Joe Collectors’ Convention – commonly known as “JoeCon.” Hasbro Toys kicked off the weekend with 300 12-inch Cobra Crimson Guard figures (see pic below) — each equipped with a working parachute — being tossed off the roof of the Hyatt Regency Crown Center. According to the JoeCon site, the weekend also featured panels, classes on how to customize your Joes (really?) and autograph sessions with G.I. Joe luminaries.
