Toy Fair 2014: Hasbro Celebrates 50 Years of G.I. Joe

TheEaglesEdge-DestroAt Toy Fair, Hasbro unveiled their initiatives planned for the 50th anniversary celebration of its iconic G.I. Joe brand. The toys which defined the “action figure” category is making Toys “R” Us the official headquarters for the brand in 2014.

Launched at the American International Toy Fair in 1964, the “original action figure” debuted as a 12-inch pose-able soldier toy, G.I. Joe has been a pop-culture phenomenon ever since. The property evolved over the years, from the original 12-inch action figure in the 1960s, the Adventure Team in the 1970s and the G.I. JOE vs. COBRA saga which was introduced in the 1980s with a 3.75-inch action figure line, comic book series and legendary animated series G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero. Recently the brand has introduced two blockbuster movies.

Beginning in March, exciting new Kre-O building sets will let kids and collectors alike build vehicles and environments to play out the G.I. Joe vs. Cobra fantasy. Collectible blind-bagged Kreons of popular G.I. Joe characters will also hit shelves, including characters from both the heroic G.I. Joe team like Lady Jaye and Footloose, as well as the villainous Cobra organization like Tomax and Scrap Iron. As part of the 50th anniversary celebration, Hasbro and Toys“R”Us are bringing one of the most popular G.I. Joe vs. Cobra playsets from the 1980s back in Kre-O form with the Kre-O G.I. Joe Terror Drome Building Set. This iconic set features over 850 pieces and will be available in the fall.

Additionally, a collectible 50th anniversary-branded, 3.75-inch scale action figure and vehicle line will debut at Toys“R”Us this fall. The special edition line will be offered in unique 50th anniversary branded packaging and reintroduce classic G.I. Joe vs. Cobra characters and iconic vehicles, including some that have not been available since the 1980s. Fans will be able to purchase classic characters like Destro, Snake Eyes and Hawk, as well as vehicles like the G.I. Joe Vamp MKII and Cobra Wolf Vehicle with an updated sculpting style and unique deco.

The 50th anniversary year will also continue the G.I. Joe brand’s long tradition of publishing and rich storytelling with exciting new programs from Hasbro’s partners. IDW Publishing’s G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero will release its landmark 200th issue in March 2014, continuing the story of the original 1980s G.I. Joe comic by original writer Larry Hama. IDW will also launch Transformers/G.I. Joe, a series uniting Hasbro’s iconic brands, by acclaimed creators Tom Scioli and John Barber this summer. Additionally, as part of its publishing program, Hasbro is opening the fantasy to fan participation. Amazon Publishing recently announced that Kindle Worlds has reached a licensing agreement with Hasbro to open up a new Kindle World based on the G.I. Joe brand. With the launch of the G.I. Joe Kindle World, writers will be able to publish their own original fiction starring iconic G.I. Joecharacters like Duke, Snake Eyes, and Cobra Commander and sell their work on Amazon.com. The G.I. Joe Kindle World will open for writers to start publishing stories in the next few months.

This spring, the official G.I. Joe Collector’s Club will host the 21st annual G.I. Joe fan convention, known as “GIJoeCon,” in Dallas from Thursday, April 10 to Sunday, April 13. Convention organizers plan on celebrating the 50th anniversary with exclusive action figure sets, special G.I. Joe guests from throughout the brand’s history and the opportunity to meet and interact with other fans of the brand.

Gen Con 2013: Dungeons & Dragons Dominated Gen Con Indy

image001(1)Wizards of the Coast brought a hell of a presence and a bit of flair to 2013’s Gen Con Indy. They absolutely kicked off the show with a bang with a night with Dungeons & Dragons. The event was the official kick-off to their next big event, The Sundering, which promises to change the realm of Forgotten Realms forever.

Travelers from across Faerûn were invited to spend the evening in Baldur’s Gate at this one-of-a-kind event where guests mingled with D&D designers, authors, and other industry luminaries while enjoying food, drinks, music, adventure and more.

Before that event opened to the public, the press was invited to go over recent announcements about the product. There was a lot of focus on digital releases, especially video games. The Lords of Waterdeep was announced for the iPad, the DSCN3362franchises for game for the platform. The award-winning and critically acclaimed board game from Wizards of the Coast will make its digital debut in a high-quality, faithful adaptation from Playdek Games. Designed for 2-5 players, the game will offer offline play against others or computer opponents or online asynchronously or in real time.

One of the few reveals was a new Dungeons & Dragon Kre-O figure. the figures were first announce and unveiled at San Diego Comic-Con but some future figures were announced like the one I snapped a photo of. The line launches from Hasbro in January 2014.

Mike Mearls, Senior Manager, Dungeons & Dragons R&D, provided a hotly-anticipated update of the status of D&D Next, the latest installment of game play rules for D&D. Fans worldwide have been helping to create this new set of rules by participating in playtests and sharing results with the D&D developers. Mearls announced the final packet distribution, thus concluding the D&D Next Playtest.

With the end of those announcements, the event opened to the public, filled with D&D fans, the event was pretty impressive with an amazing setting. You can check it out below.
