2017 Dirty South G.I.Joe Meet Spotlight – Show Exclusive Black Major Urban Assault Trooper

Although it was the first time the Dirty South G.I.Joe Meet was held, our good friend Albert came out of the gate swinging, offering a show exclusive figure!

Show attendees had the opportunity to take home a Black Major Exclusive Urban Assault Trooper. This vintage style Alley Viper, in a vibrant Cobra Blue and Red with Black and Silver highlights, was an instant hit. For those of you familiar with Black Major’s figures, then you know the quality associated with this release. The figure includes all of his iconic gear – 

  • Face Mask
  • Weapon
  • Backpack with removable Hook
  • Shield

As if the Exclusive wasn’t cool enough, Albert enlisted the help of JoeRepro.com who made an Exclusive Box for the figure that even had show exclusive branding! How cool is that? We took it up a notch and included some of the amazing Diorama pieces that Dreadnok Dread had on hand for the pictorial, but you’ll have to buy those separately. 😉

2017 Dirty South G.I.Joe Meet Up Post Show Wrap Up

The 2017 Dirty South G.I.Joe Meet Up has come and gone. For being the first, it was definitely awesome! The event was held at The Uncanny Comic Shop in Clermont, FL. If you’re ever in the area, make sure to stop by as the shop staff is amazing. They welcomed a bunch of G.I.Joe geeks with open arms and made us all feel right at home. 

There was a great turn out, with all sorts of awesome vendors on hand like Aaron Gildea, Irving Santiago of UltraCon, Dreadnok Dread , JoeRepro.com and S&C Hobbies, just to name just a few. Alongside the vendors, there was of course everything you’d find in a Comic Shop, so there was something for everyone. It was great to see so many kids too, as we all have to do our part to get the next generation hooked on our beloved modern army action figures. 

The Dirty South Meet even had its own exclusive figure, a Black Major Urban Assault Trooper in Vibrant Red & Blue, with black and silver highlights. JoeRepro.com made  custom box for the figure, with branding from the event. There was so much awesome to digest, that we’re going to highlight different aspects in individual posts, so stay tuned for more from the show, including updates throughout the week. We’ll have reviews of the Black Major Exclusive White & Red Alley Viper, the Joe Repro Exclusive Night Force Steel Brigade figure and rounding things out with a review of one of the amazing backdrops offered by JoeRepro! 

The end of the show brought a raffle with awesome prizes – 1st place took home a Convention Exclusive Missile Command Playset, 2nd place snagged a Black Major Exclusive Starduster and 3rd Place, which was won by our own MegsTriggerMan, was a pair of killer Night Force Steel Brigade Iron On Patches! The best part? No, not the prizes – All proceeds from the raffle are going to help relief efforts in Puerto Rico. That’s how awesome Albert and the folks at The Uncanny Comic Shop are, so again, if you’re in the area, make sure to stop by! 

Now, when I tell you that all in attendance had a good time, it’s an understatement. A heartfelt congratulations from all of here on Cobra Island goes to Mr. Albert Torres! Albert went out of his way to make this event a special one and by the looks on everyone’s faces, I can tell you without a doubt that we’re ready for the next!

Project Downfall

Project Downfall JoeCon 2016

The brochure for JoeCon 2016 is online, and this year’s set is Project Downfall!

COBRA has installed an advanced radar station on one of the
“fourteener’s”, mountains that rise more than 14,000 feet above
sea level in the Colorado Rocky Mountains. When G.I. JOE tests
their new stealth aircraft at one of the local Air Force bases, they
find themselves on a search and rescue mission for the ultimate
prize.
The COBRA A.D.D.E.R.S. (Aerial Deployment Daredevil Elite
Recon Squadron) are a covert reconnaissance and warfare unit of
the COBRA Air Force. These tactical assault glider pilots swoop
down on their prey and steal everything they can carry back to
their base. They are airborne criminals determined to rule the
skies by any means necessary!
The G.I. JOE SKY PATROL are an elite aerial assault team.
They use advanced stealth technology to provide offensive and
defensive counter air operations. These airborne troopers conduct
rapid, infiltration, ex-filtration or reconnaissance missions using
specialized deployment systems and tactics. Their goal is to clear
the skies by disrupting or neutralizing all enemy forces in their
path.
Both the COBRA and G.I. JOE squadron leaders know that
command of the sky is crucial in determining the outcome of any
battle. Which team will be victorious and gain air superiority?
The 2016 3 3/4” convention set contains highly requested teams and some new additions available for the first time in the modern era 25A action figure style. This special edition set includes:
SKY PATROL (six figures): DROP ZONE, SKYDIVE, CLIFF “AIRWAVE” MEWETT, STATIC LINE, ROBERT “AIRBORNE” SIX, JOHN-EDWARD “ALTITUDE” JONES.
COBRA A.D.D.E.R.S. (nine figures): SKY CREEPER, COBRA
FLYING SCORPION, AIR DEVIL x 3, COBRA BLACK
VULTURE, COBRA NIGHT VULTURE x 3.
Each of these great teams comes with their classic weapons,
accessories, figure stands and file cards in this exciting fifteen
figure boxed set.
Also, make sure you are there for package pick-up on Thursday
night so that you won’t miss this year’s souvenirs! These
convention exclusive souvenirs will feature uniquely themed
action figures and vehicles to battle for air supremacy! Plus,
all these limited edition products will have a major role in our
exclusive 2016 GIJoeCon comic book!

The 2016 JoeCon will be held from June 16-19 in Loveland Colorado!  Expect preorders for Project Downfall to go up soon!
