Lets Get G.I. Joburg to JoeCon 2018 via GoFundMe

Alright, before we get in to this post – For the most part, many of you know me. If you don’t know me well, I’d hope that you would get the feeling from my articles that I wouldn’t share something with you that I couldn’t get behind myself. With that said, here’s the scoop – 

You know’em and if you’re like us here on the Island, you love’em! Who? G.I.Joburg, of course! This trio from South Africa have been repping G.I.Joe for what seems like forever. Being based in South Africa does have its drawbacks however… Paul, Rob and Steve have never been able to attend the biggest event on the GI Joe collectors’ calendar: the annual GI Joe Convention. With this being the last year, it’s understandable that they’re doing all in their power to get there. 

So, how can you help? Easy! If you have a few bucks to spare, head on over to the Get GI Joburg to JoeCon 2018 GoFundMe page and contribute what you can. Every penny counts! Let’s get G.I.Joburg to GIJoeCon 2018!  Once you get your contribution in, join us after the break to discuss on the Cobra Island Forums!

GIJoeCon 2018 Guest Announcement – Kurt Groen

The G.I.Joe Collectors Club has announced a new guest for the G.I.Joe Collectors Convention, none other than Mr. Kurt Groen! From the Club – 

KURT GROEN joined the G.I. Joe Design Team at Hasbro, Inc. in January 1989. Kurt’s first day on the job led him into designing his first 3 3/4″ G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero action figure: VAPOR, the Cobra Hurricane Pilot. Kurt joined the team just in time for the company to start producing spring-loaded launchers. This addition of “weapons that really shoot” enhanced the play value of the G.I. Joe toy line through the 1990s. His head was used as the basis to create the 1992 Oktober Guard action figure: BIG BEAR. 

Kurt designed and developed all sizes of G.I. Joe, from the 3 3/4″ to the 12″ Hall of Fame and Classic Collection, including Sgt. Savage and his Screaming Eagles, along with G.I. Joe: Extreme. Kurt was lucky to work on numerous other popular Hasbro toy lines including: Jurassic Park, Starting Lineup, Winner’s Circle, WWF, Tonka, Playskool, Dinosaurs to name a few. After many years at Hasbro, Kurt moved on from toy design to Product Development in Sporting Goods where he works today.

Thanks to our friends from Just another G.I.Joe Show for the heads up! Are you excited for this latest guest announcement? Sound off on the Cobra Island Forums

G.I.Joe Collectors Club Heartwrencher and Dreadnok Stinger 4×4 Now Shipping

It’s time! The G.I.Joe Collectors Club has begun notifying Club Members that their pre-orders for the G.I.Joe Collectors Club Heartwrencher and Dreadnok Stinger 4×4  are now being fulfilled! Here’s the scoop from the Club – 

The Dreadnoks use this specially designed armored strike vehicle to clear a path for their raids on military installations. It features two opening gull-wing doors and four ground-to-air rockets.

Heartwrencher is one of the few women to become a member of the Dreadnok’s gang. This former mechanic and chop shop operator has an appropriate nickname, since she is often seen wielding a large wrench as a combat weapon. When she’s behind the wheel of the Dreadnok Ground Assault 4-WD vehicle, the G.I. Joe team better clear the skies, because her ground-to-air rockets are going to bring the BOOM!

Will you be adding the Dreadnok Stinger and Heartwrencher to your modern era G.I.Joe collection? Join us for discussion already in progress on the Cobra Island Forums
