JoeCon Exclusive Figures Missing Paint Apps

A huge thank you to Ellen Sue Clarke of the awesome G.I. Joe Command Central Facebook Group for sharing some pictures from the G.I. Joe Convention of some quality control issues with some of the Exclusive Figures.

It appears that Major Bludd and the Laser Vipers are missing some paint applications. A sign posted on the convention room floor shows that replacements will be shipped out at a later date.

Welcome To Marwen

A little off the beaten path today, but given the amount of love we have for all of our #JoePhotography and #ToyPhotography friends we thought it was an inspired share that might strike a chord with a lot of our Island family!!

Check out the trailer to Welcome To Marwen, starring Steve Carell, based on the life and work of artist and photographer Mark Hogancamp.

On April 8, 2000, Mark Hogancamp was attacked outside of a bar by five men who beat him nearly to death. After nine days in a coma and forty days in the hospital, Mark was discharged with brain damage that left him little memory of his previous life. Unable to afford therapy, Mark creates his own by building a 1/6-scale World War II-era Belgian town in his yard and populating it with dolls representing himself, his friends, and even his attackers.

How special is #ToyPhotography to you!? Post your favorite pics in our forum!

Top Secret No More

Artist Netho Diaz and Editor Tom Waltz of IDW Publishing have revealed the long teased “Top Secret” comic.

It’s the introduction of Agent Helix to the A Real American Hero Universe.

From Netho Diaz:

I’m gonna do another GIJOE arc introducing Helix to ARAh universe in the first Dawn mission. Here’s the official solicitation and my Cover for the first BOMBASTIC issue!

G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero: Silent Option #1 (of 4)—Cover A: Netho Diaz—SPOTLIGHT
Larry Hama & Ryan Ferrier (w) • Netho Diaz & Kenneth Loh (a) • Netho Diaz (c)

“Silent Option,” Part 1 (of 4)! Following in the bloody footsteps of the smash-hit “Dawn of the Arashikage” story arc, living legend Larry Hama brings us the newest chapter in breakout character Dawn Moreno’s G.I. JOE journey—and her first (un)official mission as a JOE may very well be her last… and nobody will ever know. Because when Agent Helix is involved, the only option is the SILENT OPTION.

Bullet points:
• The return of breakout character Dawn Moreno (Snake Eyes) to the pages of G.I. JOE: A Real American Hero!
• The introduction of Agent Helix to the G.I. JOE: A Real American Hero universe!
• Each over-sized issue includes the 20-page main story by the “Dawn of the Arashikage” superstar creative team of Larry Hama and Netho Diaz, plus a four-page backup “Codename: Helix” origin story by Ryan Ferrier (G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero vs. The Six Million Dollar Man) and Kenneth Loh (Dead Rising: Road to Fortune, KISS).
• A great jumping on point for new readers!
• Self-contained canonical mini-series that takes place within the G.I. JOE: A Real American Hero continuity!
• Variant covers by Luca Pizzari and Mateus Santolouco!
