G.I. Joe Con Floor Report: First Impressions Posted by Curto on September 28, 2007 at 11:08 AM CST: We're just getting started with our coverage of the Official 2007 G.I. Joe Collectors Convention in Atlanta, but here's a quick summary of what our field reporter Rich Alot has to say in his first report:
Waves 4 & 5 will be shown tomorrow, as well as the first wave for spring 2008.
Hasbro is aware of the problems with the 25th Anniversary figures not fitting into the existing vehicles. They've created a workaround for this with future releases by tweaking the figures a bit so they'll fit.
A prototype of Snow Job was on display, hinting that he'll be one of the future figures! UPDATE: First Look At Snow Job!
There will be a Christmas surprise this year: Hasbro will be re-releasing 7 out of 10 figures from the boxed sets onto individual cards. Baroness and Cobra Trooper are two that won't be, we're still awaiting word on the third. (UPDATE: It was announced to be the Cobra Air Trooper.)
Stay tuned all weekend for more reports from Atlanta!
