Cobra Island Invades East Coast Comic Con 2018

This past Saturday I had the pleasure to attend the 2018 East Coast Comic Con. Among those in attendance were the great Larry Hama, Michael Golden, Mike Zeck, Mark Pingitore (of G.I. Jokes fame) and many more talented people who have worked on our beloved G.I. Joe over the years.

It was quite a fun atmosphere with friendly fans. I was able to secure the “Great Lakes Comic Con” Variant of G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero #224 and have it signed in person by both Writer Larry Hama and Cover Artist Mike Zeck. I also got some awesome prints signed by Mike Zeck and Michael Golden. I met a fantastic artist and bought a couple of amazing G.I. Joe/Cobra Prints from artist George Vega.

There were tons of dealers with more comics than you could imagine. Unfortunately for me, I have been in search of a couple of series that don’t fall into the Superhero genre, so they were impossible to find at this convention. If you were looking for Superhero books though, this was the place. I saw books from the 1940’s right up through to today, along with pages of original comic book art for sale.

The TV Celebrity guests included the cast of “Starsky and Hutch“, Butch “Eddie Munster” Patrick, Mickey Dolenz of “The Monkees”, Lee Meriwether (Catwoman in the 1960’s Batman), David Yost (The Original Blue Power Ranger) and some famous TV Cars, like the Batmobile, The Munster Mobile and a few screen-used Gran Torino’s from “Starsky and Hutch”.

The lines for most signings were quite reasonable. The only line that was absolutely insane was that of Jim Starlin, the creator of Thanos. With the villain shattering box office records in this past weekend’s release of “Avengers: Infinity War”, that was no surprise.

To sum it all up, it was a fantastic day full of fun, meeting other fans, meeting creators and just hanging out with many like-minded individuals. I can’t recommend the experience enough.

We’ve gathered a gallery of images from the event, so make sure to read more below to see first hand shots from the Convention. Get in in the #ECCC2018 discussion in progress on the Cobra Island Forums.

Hammer of the Gods Toys and Popprolific Present Fury Force

Pray for peace. Prepare for 5.5 war.

Hammer of the Gods Toys (HotGToys) and Popprolific have let the cat out of the bag and revealed a special project that they’ve been collaborating on. That project? The 5.5″ Fury Force, an assortment of Heroes and Villains modeled after your favorite Modern Army Action Figure! Here’s the scoop from both camps: 

HotGToys on Instagram: We’ve been sneaking around for weeks and it’s time to come clean: Popprolific and Hammer of the Gods have joined forces to bring you… Fury Force! A series of 80s inspired, 5.5, military figures you never knew you wanted. Heroes who will defend freedom at all costs against the ruthless Agents of the Serpent. Keep an eye here and throw my man POPprolific a follow to keep updated on release schedule.

Popprolific on InstagramThere was a space in my collection…. a gap between the space faring barbarians and the hordes of snake persons. A spot on the shelf where something was missing. Had I seen it before? I couldn’t quite bring it into focus… @hotgtoys saw it too. An idea so familiar, yet bizarrely different. It was like your childhood… only, not the way you remember. In the way nostalgia is sometimes. The rumors were true, we’ve combined our talents. Months spent in secrecy, and only the tip if the iceberg has been seen. That is, until now….

As seen in the attached images, there are 8 characters so far, with more teased at as coming soon! Will you be adding these amazing Fury Force figures to your collection once they become available? Sound off after the break on the Cobra Island Forums
