This week we are live covering the Hasbro G.I. Joe Convention from the Walt Disney Dolphin Resort in Florida and I came across this story which I think anyone who is into collecting G.I. Joes would want to see. A film has been made by Tristan Rudat, filmmaker and son of Hasbro designer Ron Rudat who did it all for G.I. Joe from 1982 till 1987. The movie is being called 'Code Name: Blast Off' (previously titled Operation Blast Off') and tells the story of the re-branding effort through first-hand interviews with the artists, writers, and designers, as well as archival photos and art.
Moviefone has a short interview with Rudat about the movie, his experiences with his Dad and G.I. Joes and how you can get a copy of the movie from Rudat himself.
