We (Sam and Tom) are joined by special Guest former President BILL CLINTON as well as our friends Christian (sculptor of the Cobra throne you may have seen) and Gray. We discuss our thoughts on the con set, get feedback from our former president, talk some custom and repaint potential, alternate takes, and some theories and the choices behind the con set. Lots of laughs, and Sam’s strange Swedish candy are followed by some talk on the custom Cobra Throne you may have seen on FB and other Joe sites.

Be sure to like and watch our facebook for more pics this weekend ! Some are already up there!
Thanks to the club tipping us off, we knew a tease would be attached to the retail version of the last con’s single comic issue. John Stottman took the pic, Glenn P Winkler determined that it was Tiger force via the background. Noted author James Kavanaugh pointed out the club bought the art of the Baroness sometime ago, and it has been used in the past and likely doesn’t reflect contents of the set.
All three of those lovely folks, as well as myself and many others are in the G.I.Joe Discussion Group on FB, and that’s where much of the conversation is taking place. If you’re not there you should be, in addition of course to whatever group your already enjoying.
I’m not a fan of bright yellow, and have no real nostalgia to that subset. The villains are likely going to determine my enjoyment of the set itself (which aren’t likely to be connected to the grid pattern on them bottom, since that’s a TF ad, and someone else pointed this out in the FB group) I’ll admit to being somewhat found of the bizarre Tigerforce Outback with white hair, beyond that, I’ll probably be trying to trade them out or sell them. I’m hoping with picking something they know is divisive for the Joes they will throw in some more commonly desired Cobras to please the rest of us.
That said, the set isn’t the best part of the convention, it’s hanging with the friends in the hobby and chatting Joe, so I’ll enjoy the con itself rather or not I will enjoy the set.
Another thing of note, is that both Hasbro and IDW are listed as being present, which is unusual. Could Hasbro be presenting new product???
