So I am guessing the set is Night Force.....NF = Noctural Fire, right? Figured that or Tiger Force.
sbartek1974:
Just got the email. Sweet. I would like to try to go. We'll see...
Shin-Gouki:
Love the advance notice.
RolandofGilead:
Too far for me.

total distance:
2044.4 miles


But cool to know it isn't all that long to wait. Maybe they can finally have that GI Joe Retaliation viewing party if the movie is still in theaters by then.
emags:
Selfishly, I'm a little disappointed if it is NF. I have customs of all of them (the regular version, not the NF versions)...though maybe we will get a decent Charbroil now. The ROC version = yuck.
RolandofGilead:
Time to start saving up for a boxed set again. But this year, I don't think I'll be buying the bagged set for all the extras for myself. Not if it's primarily Night Force and there's not a cool enough Cobra troop builder.
Zarana:
Nocturnal fire is what my doctor is treating me for right now.
Robowang:
Hey, five months notice! That's plenty of time to save up and plan. Awesome!

(if you can't form a plan in five months...well...yikes!)
cmderinchief:
damn it man...
Air-tight:
Cool! Glad to read this news at the end of a blah day. Maybe I'll be there this year. Night Force it is.

ditto here. I might actually be able to go for once since thats only like a 3-4 hour drive!
Superjoe74:
I am not at all interested in Night Force but, the Con is close enough I can drive to get there. That, and the advanced noticed is too awesome!

angelofdeath69:
Night Force, lucky you americans.
sithewok:
I am hoping to actually be able to go this time. April is a tough month for me, though. Will have to see.

Nocturnal fire, eh? Night force versus ????
yeti76:
YES!!!!! I can't wait. Just a two hour drive for me! Looks like since I'll be saving money on the short drive, I might as well get two booth spaces instead of one. WOO HOO!!!
Steel Brigade:
Just got the email & I don't think I am available that week, but I am looking forward to the upcoming news & reveals.
wrw311:
Is $135 a night good for Indy? Im trying to plan a trip from Richmond. I will be traveling solo (my wife doesnt collect joes).

Is staying at the hotel a good place to meet joecon attendees and hang out? Or do most people find other hotels?

Any info would be awsome since this will be my first joecon. ( I have been going to comic conventions since I was a kid)

ALSO what are the best days to go?
SteelersMobat:
I excited to be able to have one within my travel range, I hope I can make it to my first JoeCon
Blot:
Night Force verses Night Watch? Night Stalkers? Night Creepers? Night-Vipers?

I'd be happy to see any and all of those!
will_winkie:
thats only a 22hour drive from where i live, me and my siblings should be able to makes it!
The Batman:
That is some bullcrap! I am not going to Indy! They can kiss my ass.
Dangerjoe:
my worst fear, night force, time to save up money

Ha ha ha! I know. That's what I thought.
Black Swan:
Any Hoosiers Tankers that have a spare room?
katdan847:
Dammit...I'm from Chicago but live in Seattle. I'm flying home for my bro's wedding 2 weeks later. I don't think I can extend my vacation that long. Oh well, I guess I'll be getting the non-attendee set again.

Be warned, he snores and prefers to sleep in the buff. And he leaves peanut butter sandwiches in the bathroom beside the toilet seat which he always leaves UP.
Jimbotron:
Man, they finally have it in Indiana and it's the days right before I leave for my trip to Japan that I've been saving up for. The exclusives don't sound too interesting if it's just night force but I may have to go just because it's finally close.
Marine-73:
FINALLY!!!!!!!!!! A Joe con close enough for me to drive to. I am there this year without a damn doubt!!!!!!!
A.V.A.C.:
Giggity, another trip to Indiana for me, lol.

Retaliation comes out the weekend before. Probably couldn't have the Con then as that's Easter weekend.
AirborneRigger:
Awesome, a Night Force set! Wonder what the Cobras will be...
Noga87:
Ohhhh that is close; may be time to save up so I can "Treat Yo Self"

Please let this be so!!
RolandofGilead:
Was there a Cobra equivalent to Night Force? I recall everyone seemed to know that it would be the Iron Grenadiers when we first learned we were getting the Oktober Guard last year.

I don't remember Night Force in the cartoons or comics, so who did they battle?
oliverbox:
NIGHT FORCE!!!
We may get Muskrat, Spearhead, Repeater (the real one), Falcon... This is awesome! Night Force is my favorite Sub Team.

I loved the DTC Plague figures we got from Hasbro. I was just asking for a Modern/30th version the other day.
maradona:
Looks like I'll be ordering the Homefront Heroes yet again this year. I wish the club would bring the Con "west of the rockies" once again.
WildWeaselZ06:
We're already getting NF Falcon. He's confirmed for the FSS two.

I'd love the night Stalkers or Shadow Guard with the twins in their business suits.....
rdodger:
Sounds great. I could drive there but I have Southwest vouchers I got after last years con I could use to fly. Looks like I might go.

Wait...you know me?!

The rate for the JW is awesome. This is where much of the NFL stayed when the Super Bowl came to Indy last year. $135 a night is a STEAL there.

The JW is right next to the NCAA headquarters, Indianapolis Zoo, Indiana State Museum and Victory Field: Home of the Indianapolis Indians, AAA affiliate to the Pittsburgh Pirates. I believe the Indians will have a home stand that weekend. Victory Field is one of the best baseball parks in America.

It is a bit of a walk to any fast food places...
alaroc:
Con 2013 in April... so we should start to see figure reveals in March, possibly as soon as late February? If this is Night Force then I hope we get figs from the whole span of the Night Force run up through VvV. Night Force Duke was one of my all time fave Dukes ever. Nunchuk. Muskrat. Psyche Out. Gung Ho. Short Fuze. Flint. A proper Repeater. Debut of an established female Joe, like Lady Jaye, in NF deco. Looking forward to this...
Nemesis*Prime:
Well we know what the Joe team will be, so what's the enemy team?

Thanks for the info! Not a big fast food guy I'll just bring some potatoes and munch on them all day.
skinny:
night force
nocturnal fire
fire = phoenix
could it be phoenix force???
Dem_Yoe'z!:
Oh SNAP! Finally a Joecon I can go to!
