For those that have been waiting for the 2014 G.I.Joe Collectors Convention Registration website to go live, well then the G.I.Joe Collectors Club may have some good news for you! GIJCC Members have received the following message from Mr. Brian Savage - |
I want to give you an update on the registration system. The company that has been contracted for this work is still behind on their commitment to us. This project was started back at the first of the fall. We are very close to having the system operational. We will be spending the next week testing. Our current plan (unless something else breaks) is to open registration the sometime the week of the 17th. This will only leave about 2 weeks for registration to be available and we apologize for the delay.
At this point, I imagine that most all of the packages will be taken in the first 48 hours. We may delay the non-attending package registration until the attending are mostly complete. This decision has not been made. We have done this in the past for other conventions and if we go this route, each will have its own "first day" so everyone can get the first day pin or jacket (1/6th scale) that wants it.
Again, we apologize that this is taking so long as the new code is designed to fix problems the old code had. And this will solve the problems for years to come.
Thanks for your support!
So if this time frame holds true, then get ready for registration, everyone! You can sound off on this update right here on the Hisstank.com forums by joining us after the break.

| Hisstank.com has just received official confirmation that Hasbro will not be in attendance at this years G.I.Joe Collectors Convention 50th Anniversary Celebration. This is old news that was also confirmed at Toy Fair 2014 from Hasbro team members, that just was over looked by most of us with the announcement of the G.I. Joe 50th Anniversary Line. |
This should put an end to the rumors and arguments that have been showing up around the web on this topic. Hopefully the G.I. Joe Collectors Club can provide us with more information on what role Hasbro will play (if any) if there is no plans for Hasbro to be in attendance at this years G.I. Joe 50th Anniversary Celebration.
Sound off on the Hisstank.com forums and let us know your opinion.

How cool is this? The G.I.Joe Collectors Club has posted another piece of gear included in the 2014 G.I.Joe collectors Convention 12" Codename: G.I.Joe Box Set. Remember that yellow map case? Well, it includes a map of Spy Island! Although very reminiscent of Cobra Island, it was noted via the G.I.Joe Collectors Club Facebook Page that is indeed Spy Island. |
The 12" Convention Offering has turned out to be an amazing tribute to G.I.Joe on his 50th Anniversary and has caught the attention of not only 12" Collectors, but 3.75" and casual collectors, too! Well played, GIJCC!
