2013 JoeCon: Day 1 - Hasbro
Shown below are images from the Hasbro booth at the 2013 G.I. Joe Convention. There was nothing on display new that wasn't previously shown at Toy Fair back in February. In fact we have been told nothing new will be put out at all this year at Joe Con that we haven't already seen. There is a good chance we could see something new at San Diego Comic Con in July and there will be an announcement for SDCC exclusives at a later time.
We do have some new images of the upcoming Eaglehawk helicopter and the Liftticket figure it comes with. One of the images below shows you a comparison in size between this new toy and an old vintage Tomahawk one. Another image shows how a metallic harness that comes with the Ultimate Roadblock figure attaches to the helicopter. The new Eaglehawk will be out in August 2013.
The Eaglehawk Helicopter will be a TRU & Online exclusive. No Target or Wal-Mart.
Also of note, we are told the fourth wave of G.I. Joe: Retaliation figure are due out on shelves next month. This is the wave with Ultimate Duke, Storm Shadow, Roadblock, Cobra Commander, Data Viper and Kwinn.
Check back tomorrow for coverage of the Hasbro panel which will start at 11am.
