The Video Is Awesome, but I was sent a pic from the Commander telling me to show this pic or he will destroy every EXCLUSIVE!

A lot of new collectors jumped aboard with the 25th line. If anything, this set should be MORE popular than any of the RAH stuff they did, plus they made it in much more limited numbers.
Considering what people paid for the SDCC gold Destro and yellow Stalker, long term I think many will regret not getting them when they could. There's really no reason why all the new 25th collectors should care if the set is a rehash - pretty much all of the 25th stuff is a rehash of RAH.
Please check out http://hmcsgreatadventure.com/ - it's a mix of sci-fi, humour and the friggin' Royal Canadian Navy, eh!

With only half the sets this year, and probably only 100 or so remaining when the show starts, I guarantee you dealers like brian toys will buy a bunch of them, they will sell out, people will get irrational and start paying way too much for them. I'm laying down the prediction now, this will be the first con set to ever sell out in the first day. Every year since Atlanta, the convention exclusives have been rising in after market value despite the numbers per figure remaining the same (between 500-1000). With numbers sliced this year, the prices on these will be rediculous on ebay.

Hmmm . . . CobraCon . . . wonder where they got THAT idea.
For those of you who weren't at the con last year, a group of us unveiled what is known as ViperCon, essentially the same thing as CobraCon. We offered a ViperCon figure (a tongue in cheek Miami bound Snow Serpent wearing swim trunks with a Cobra beach towel, complete with a polar bear w/ mind control device) and card art. *see partial art in my sig* Not only were they given to the GIJCC staff, but they were also given to the Hasbro Joe team. (The card art currently resides hanging up in Hasbro's offices.) I guess we should be pretty impressed that the GIJCC took the idea of ViperCon and ran with it . . . but nah, we'll just be a little bitter and scoff at them stealing it.
We're still going ahead with our ViperCon 2009 card art, but will not have a set this year due to budget constraints. It's all tongue in cheek and all fun. If you're attending JoeCon this year, make sure you find us and pick up the card!

That was pretty good. I love seeing the old school characters come to life in anyway possible, even cheesy comp. animation.

Yup. I'd love to see an animated series done in the same style, with the same voice actors. I absolutely love that video.
