A few left over stragglers from my image onslaught over the weekend. Set up in the middle of the Hasbro showroom at the Convention this year was quite the impressive diorama. A double sided display with two scenes on the near side and one large mountain scene on the far side, pretty much every element of recent G.I. Joe releases were captured. The far side brought the mountain side ninja combat into 3 dimensions, while the near side featured a Benzheen battle as well as a peek inside a Cobra base.
Some really great scenes throughout, and I took a ton of pictures.
Also included in this gallery are shots of various G.I. Joe: Retaliation posters that were scattered on display cases and the wall, many of which featured large sized artwork we had not necessarily seen, especially in such a big format.
With the news and information coming out of the G.I. Joe Convention in New Orleans, I have totally revamped the G.I. Joe: Retaliation toy SuperPage to reflect the new assortments, the release dates, and updated images from the showroom floor.
If you see any obvious mistakes, please let me know as this is a work in progress and I’ve been working on this pretty late at night over the past few nights.
For folks who are fans of Lego and fans of G.I. Joe, the following video will make you cheer and possibly cry. An immense Lego G.I. Joe diorama was showcased at the G.I. Joe Convention in New Orleans and this below video was shown as part of the short film contest.
It’s an incredible look at the awesome ways G.I. Joe and Lego can work together, but a reminder that, to date, there is no official license joining the two. Good friend of GeneralsJoes Todd from Magnum 6 Delta brought this video to my attention, and I was able to meet its excellent creator at the JoeCon itself.
During the Hasbro presentation at GIJoeCon this past weekend we were treated to a special trailer for the upcoming online game G.I. Joe: Special Ops! Over on their Facebook page, SyFy Games did the same thing so the rest of you guys can check it out as well.
