Re: G.I. Joe Convention 2015 - Springfield, Illinois
I guess the short answer is; what 12" Joes? They don't make them anymore. Heck, they barely make ANY G.I.Joes anymore.
Based on reports from the last couple Conventions, I'd say there will be mostly 3 3/4" items/dealers, and a few 12" dealers. And many of the few 12" dealers will have 60's/70's Joes. HT, BBi, DML, 21st, etc, etc will be few and far between. The exclusives will most likley be 3 3/4", with one or two vintage style 12" sets.
And Hasbro did NOT attend the Con this year, so they probably won't be there showing anything next year. If they are, most believe it will be more 3 3/4" and Kreo (Lego size) figures for the next movie.
BTW, for the record; the location of the Con is completely unfair to those living west of Texas, who haven't had a local club Convention in 11 years.
