Did we get any new pics of stuff today? Any announcements today? Sorry, I just got home a little while ago.
Why aren't there more Joes from the Deep South?
And would it kill Hasbro to give us a Marine Corps Officer?

Is Range viper a repaint or the same one from the Cobra Island packs?

It's a repainted version of the 7 pack offering, in gray, red & black.
Oliver, there were 2 panels held today, one based on 3.75" stuff, one on Joe artwork.
Waiting for vadersquest & DESTRO to get home and give us some images.
As of right now, friends are saying goodbye and gearing up for next year's event, while saying goodbye to this years.

Holy SHIT. I take one day off from work and thirty pages go by? You guys need to go out more, even if it's Joe hunting. :P
Okay, reading through all this crap, here's my thoughts.
Hiss Sentry - Fail (unless it can be used to retrofit a classic Hiss with rolling treads, in which case it's a win)
New Hiss - Fail. The up/down gimmick is trifling.
New Zartan - Win and looks crazy.
Ice Cutter - Fail. One step away from the pogo.
Jungle/Night Viper - Epic Gun Win!
Heavy Duty - Yellow Fail
Desert Night Raven - Fail. If you're going to repaint a $50 vehicle, at least use a better color scheme.
Ninja Scarlet - Win(?) At least as custom material.
Shadow Tracker - Epic win! I always wanted more brothers in Cobra, and this guy is just goddamn crazy-awesome!
O-ring Big Lobb - Fail. 20 yrs too late and just f#@k the o-rings.
Dr Venom - Joe Club Win.
Ashiko and Motoslave - Win for the mech, fail for the figure. No good guy should use that Alley Viper ski-mask. Cycle might be good for Helix or Scarlet though.
Desert Rockslide - Fail (unless you missed the DVD pack Dusty)
As for being sprayed by someone, it depends on my mood, whether I know the dude (friendly ball-breaking), and whether I like the scent. I'll either laugh it off, wink and offer my room key (priceless reaction), return the favor with my pepper spray (honest officer! It was an accident! I went for my axe, but I pulled out my mace! Happens all the time!), or fall to the floor and start screaming, "MY EYES!!! MY EEEEEYYYEESSS!!!", and see who security sides with then.
I've ruined peoples' cars and lives with lunchmeat and bisquick. I'm not to be taken lightly.
Anyway, posturing and produce-terrorism aside, it looks like a mixed bag. Some of the stuff is awesome, and some not so. There's stuff I definately want, and some I'll be glad to pass on. All in all, that's not too bad.
Too much win isn't good for my bank-account and a temporary lull in the avalanch will be welcome. >.>

I've got 2 grand saved up for just an event/ vacation. Just need to make arrangements for a room, and travel. This would be my first joecon, but i was there in 2007 for botcon.
the builtmore hotel was amazing.
do they have parts parties and stuff at joecon? those were the most fun of botcon. meeting people and trading parts off the dealer floor with like minded guys who didn't care about cost, and just wanted a few much needed parts, and wanted to help others get much needed parts.

It's great that the 2010 JoeCon location's already been announced. Why the hell FunPub can't do that for BotCon is a mystery to me, as they seem to always leave that announcement late.
What's awesome is now I can plan to go to next year's JoeCon and it's on the East Coast. I love visiting Providence.
