Swift Wind will make the decision to not sign-up for the 2011 sub very easy.

I liked them in teh beginning and bought a about half of the figures.  However, I sold them off several months ago because I spent the money on ARAH custom soldiers.

Received my 12" Henchman and it looks cool on shelf.  I wish the logo on the suit wasn't just a sticker.  It's already coming loose and over time dust will make it worse.  The same thing is true with the other Club AT logos which are just stickers. 

Finally caved on the con 3pk but I went the ebay route and got it for 58 shipped which a lot cheaper than club pricing with shipping.

The club posted a cool Spy Island video.  Now I may have to buy the Spy Island con set someday to go with the Henchman I ordered.

They added about 70 orange Flint figures to the store.  They must have found another box of them.

A member over at the yojoe.com forums wrote up a great article about the top ten ARAH vehicles for the LA Times.  Check it out.

I'm not sure why the souvenirs didn't sell out.  Maybe the economy, fewer attendees and a lot less speculators buying?  In the long run the 2pk and 3pk may not be worth much more than purchase price.

I'll probably pick up the 3pk before it sells out and skip the 2pk. 

Gaucho is my favorite of those 5 souvenir figures.  Dolphin looks ok but that head is way to small and narrow.  I have no interest in Natalie and I'm guessing that most people don't know her Action Man 1990s history; including me.  Jammer suffers from the small head too but it goes well with Gaucho.  Lifeline is my second favorite souvenir figure.

I didn't order the boxed set because all I really want from that set is Black Major, Interrorgator and a lot of the Red Shadow troops.  These I'm going to buy as I find them cheap and that may take a while.

Just bought one Henchman figure.  My Air Adventurer needed someone to attack his base camp.

They are now down to 4 remaining.

The club store has 2010 Joecon souvenirs in stock.  I bought an orange Flint and the comic for now.  They have about 15 orange Flints, 100 2pks, 125 3pks, 40 henchmen.  I'm so tempted to buy that Henchman.  I'll probably buy the 3pk but not yet.

Thanks for the coverage.  

Saw a picture of the AT shirt and front of the Shadows shirt over at the Joecon site.  The one with crossbones on the front and the Joecon10 logo was it apparently.  

What was the Alan Hassenfeld presentation all about?  I haven't heard anyone mention anything about that.  

I sure hodp they have next year's con in the Midwest.

Hope everyone going to the convention has fun.  Unfortunately I won't make it this year.  Not enough funds to make the long journey but if it was closer I would go for sure even without much money.

GI Joe Train Concept Prototype  

I didn't think this thing actually existed in this form. This would be an incredible piece to own, but I'm willing to bet this thing might hit $10,000. It's at $2,225 right now, and there's still 2 1/2 days to go.

The seller is designer/engineer Greg Berndtson.  He was at the 2009 Joecon and displayed this train prototype and others during his presentation.  He's the guy who developed the USS Flagg, HAL, JUMP, Tomahawk, Mauler and many others.  In 1985 he became the design director of the entire line.

Joe Defender / Re: G.I. Joe/Action Man: Modern 12"

I'm a sporadic 12" collector.  I opt for the 12" Club every year and buy some of their exclusives like the Man of Asia and Kung-Fu sets. 

I bought the Air Adventurer set and Base Camp at the 2008 Joecon.  That tent, figure and jetpack are just about as cool as these get. 

I've passed on all the other 12" sets since then and in 2006 and 2007 mostly due to buying the 3 3/4" sets in bulk.  Price is also a big factor and I'm hoping they reduce the price of the 2006-2009 sets at a future con.  Last year they were clearing out older 12" sets for dirt cheap but not the AT sets.

I picked up all the Wal-Mart AT figures and 45th repros from the last few years.

I also bught a lot of the 1990s 12" and some early 2000s in stores as they were released.  I passed on the 40th Anniversary sets but was almost tempted to start buying those.
