I looked all over the box. No indication or markings on what figure is inside.

I just bought Michael Golden's GI Joe Yearbook Artist Edition Portfolio from IDW. For the uninitiated, IDW has a line of books called Artist Edition, which reproduces comic artists original art for a specific artist's, generally collecting six stories. For example, there was a John Romita Spider-Man Artist Edition.

The portfolio line isn't a book but collects a original art from a single story in a hardbound folder.

It's fantastic looking!

According to Scott Dunbier at WonderCon, the person that bought the entire original pages had them restored. The wordballoons were originally pasted onto the pages but were removed and placed on an acetate overlay so you can see it lettered and unlettered. For the portfolio, one side is lettered and the other side of the page is not. It's pretty neat!

I picked up...

GI Joe: Retaliation's Joe Colton figure.

Image

These dollar store figures based on my favorite Snake-Eyes and Storm Shadow toys as a kid.

You just picked up Joe Colton? Did you put him down when you were done?

Picked up GI Joe Field Manual Volume 2.

There's not a lot of material from the animated movie but I was surprised to see character models from the commercials and the DIC series.

Caved and bought a box of the GI Joe 1991 trading cards.

I was told that 9 out of 10 boxes have a complete card set. One of these days, I’ll open this sucker…

Not surprising, I see later wave POC figs in Rite Aid all the time.

Last week I got Ultimate CC and Roadblock. This week I'm expecting SE, Firefly, and Kwin.

I got my GI Joe dog tags from the mail. It was a mail away from the GI Joe: Retaliation Blu-Ray. It's so cool!

No I don't, I can't hate you, you know that. It's the man, I hate the man, I hate the game.
I also got a Night Viper for $5 from a friend who found it at 5 below.

I went to a 5 Below looking for some vipers and all they really had was the 'cyber ninja'.


So now I have a 'cyber ninja', and a deep, deep feeling of relief that I didn't spend ten bucks on it.

Stupid zipline junk. This is a figure that, had they accessorized him better than some suction cups, probably would have been a fairly neat viper. Hell, or even THE Retaliation Viper, so that it'd have been the Cobra generic.
