View Full Version : The Ultimate G.I. Joe Con Irony?

Ok, I know this will probably cause a lot of debate, but here goes. I purchased all of the 2012 Convention figures, and I think that this is arguably the best Convention set ever; and the two and three packs are equally impressive. The irony is: there is not a single G.I. Joe figure in the set or extra packs! Best Joe set ever and no Joes in it.
Hey at least the Oktober Guard fans got their toys!
This I Command!

Ehh, a little kid dressed as Sgt. Slaughter pointed out this same thing to the staff of the Joe Club during their roundtable discussion. I will say for the record I actually think Mission Brazil 2 is the best set, but I agree these are very awesome overall. Personally, I'm glad there weren't any Joes in the set, helped to freshen things up a little bit.

The Oktober Guard was what compelled me to make this my first con ever.

I think the irony is all the profiteering on action figures of communists. Col. Brekov would not approve.

The Oktober Guard has GI Joe stands if that helps.
