I think most of us assumed this as it was, but if not, the GIJoeCon FAQ just did.
They posted some updated answers to the FAQ yesterday, and included in those answers was the following tidbit:
“Question: Will the 3 3/4-inch Iceberg figure be available for club members to buy on a 25th card at the convention like Footloose was in 2012?
Answer: Yes, a limited number will be for sale at the convention.”
One now wonders when we might see the first images of the 2013 Iceberg… I’ve been so caught up in Convention coverage I hadn’t even thought to wonder. Perhaps after registration goes live.
Please be sure you’re checking the GIJoeCon FAQ at every opportunity. A lot of the questions you might have are answered there, including the dreaded “Why is Cobra Mortal not chrome?” Click here to read for yourself.
Secret Mission to Dragon Island is setting itself up nicely to be a very cool 12″ set that continues the mythology of the 12″ Adventure Team line and brings it more in line with the Real American Hero universe as well. The G.I. Joe Collectors Club posted a few more images from this 12″ exclusive set to GIJoeCon.com featuring the terrific Hazmat suit for evil villain Sebastian Gorman. The suit features an awesome rendition of the Black Dragon logo that we’ve seen on various items since 2003.

I remember it like it was yesterday… not only was my team playing the biggest game of the year, but G.I. Joe: Retaliation was poised to launch their huge Super Bowl TV spot, introducing the viewing public to the wonders of flying mountain ninjas.
This year, not so much.
Not only is my team not in the game, but from the sounds of Latino Review, G.I. Joe: Retaliation will not return to the big stage for a second go at an its marketing campaign. I’m not quite sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing yet. Actually, correct that. I know it’s not a good thing. But is it terrible?
We’ve already had over 12 months of G.I. Joe: Retaliation advertising blitz, is one more commercial during the Super Bowl going to provide any additional bang for the buck, or will it simply be a reminder to folks of what happened in early 2012?
I suppose time will tell what the affect is, but I almost wish Paramount was jumping back in with both barrels blasting instead of treading on eggshells hoping to not remind folks about the delay. Thanks again to Latino Review for the information.
With the 2013 G.I. Joe Convention registration looming ever closer, the Collectors’ Club has finally begun posting previews for the sure to be fantastic 12″ Adventure Team Convention Exclusive set. Over the past several years, the greatness of these 12″ exclusives has been somewhat lost in the 3 3/4″ discussion, but it really deserves some focus.
This year we have an awesome set with a stealth jumpsuit, a tuxedo, and a pair of great looking 12″ figures. Not to mention, their nemesis is “Black Dragon” who Real American Hero fans will remember was the villain from the 2003 Operation: Anaconda convention set.
Check out the Adventure Team preview right here, and I’ve also mirrored some of the images below. Looking like a good start. Does that dude have a flocked goatee!??

So not only do we get Lady Jaye in attendance, but looks like Flint will be joining her in Indianapolis for the 2013 G.I. Joe Convention! Bill Ratner voiced Flint back in the Sunbow animated series, and has gone on to do a wealth of other voice work and production work in entertainment over the past several years.
It will be quite exciting having both of these G.I. Joe legends join us in Indy this April.
If you want to hear more from Mr. Ratner, be sure to check out What’s on Joe Mind Episode 70 where we spent about an hour talking to him. You can hit up the embedded player below as well. Make sure you continue to check GIJoeCon.com for the latest and greatest JoeCon intel!
