Coverage RoundUp

Do you find yourself back at work on Monday morning worried that you might have missed an important Toy Fair announcement?

We’re not at Toy Fair this year, but we’re providing our Armchair Coverage and keeping up on the latest news coming out of New York. We've got tons of news from the weekend and we'll be adding more until Toy Fair wraps up, so check back often!

Gallery 1988: Great artwork, some hints, new accessories, and the May Club Eternia Figure!

Last week, many fans were anxiously awaiting the opening of G88's MOTU Art Show on Friday night due to a tip from Matty that one of two SDCC Exclusive figures would be revealed there. Unfortunately, Matty informed us on Friday morning that a complication had arisen and that SDCC reveal would not be possible. Luckily, Mattel was able to recover and did not disappoint - unless you're one of those folks that takes the term "Classics" literally when it comes to MOTU Classics! We at IAT see the entire line and all past incarnations as one giant MOTUverse and we're not afraid to say we were excitedly exchanging texts and phone calls as the images rolled in. Let's just say Matty gave us more than a few goodies to make up for the missing SDCC figure.

Mr. Rant asks
“What would you do?”

We’re going to do something a little different today. Usually, I write my articles about something that frustrates, annoys, or upsets me. Since a lot of things in this world fit into those three categories, I’m never without something to talk about. But, every great once in a while, something happens in life and I don’t quite know how to react. This is one of those times...

Last Friday, the ItsAllTrue Crew headed up to Kansas City for the 2009 G.I. Joe Convention. We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Even I had a pretty good time, except for one thing: the parachute drop.

Kansas City – Final Round Up!

JoeCon is over and the ItsAllTrueCrew couldn't have had a better time. From the parachute drop, to the various panels, to some of the coolest new Joes, and to meeting Larry Hama, it was really one thrill after another. We've got pictures from all the major events we attended as well as some pictures from the floor and the various booths. AdventureVault has given us his lowdown on Friday's Hasbro Panel - check it out and if you have any questions, post them and we'll do our best to answer with what we remember. Finally, we round out our JoeCon Coverage with two reviews: the SDCC Destro 2pk and the International Jump Jet 2pk.

International Jump Jet 2pk Review

When the ItsAllTrue crew decided to hit up JoeCon, we weren't thinking about exclusives. We knew about the Crimson Strike Team and we liked it, but they were out of our price range. We'd seen the promotion images for the other exclusives, but as we packed up and made the trek to Kansas City, we didn't really have time to appreciate them.

Then we got to convention hall, saw the convention exclusive case, and were hit by a very powerful wave of "I need that!". Collectors know it all too well. Some things, when they're in front of you, are able to reach out and get you in their grip. All of the exclusives were pretty snazzy in those cases, but none of them stood out to me like the International Jump Jet 2pk. I had to have it.

GI Joe Con 2009 – Hasbro Panel

We had a great time at Friday’s Joe Con, but probably the most exciting part was the Hasbro panel. Here’s my rundown of what was revealed and the details on some of the awesome figures we’ll be seeing into next year. For those of you who haven’t seen the movie yet, I won’t go into any spoilers, but we all know that there is going to be sequels and that Joe didn’t defeat Cobra for good. With that said, the 2010 line will be based off of where the movie ended, with the overall theme being “The Pursuit of Cobra”. Cobra has set up four bases around the world to develop a new weapon that will help them become a true military force. GI Joe has sent out specialized strike teams to take down Cobra’s secret bases and stop the development of the secret weapon. What is this secret weapon, you ask?
