Cobra Takes Over The Hasbro International G.I. Joe Collectors’ Convention
CobraCon is coming, and there's nothing that The Hasbro International G.I. Joe Collector's Convention can do but humor the mad would-be dictator.
The G.I. Joe Collector's Convention has pulled out all the stops to promote its upcoming show at the Rhode Island Convention Center in Providence from April 29 - May 2, 2010, including modding their official site with a certified Cobra Commander temper tantrum plus uploading an original animated short demonstrating CC's outrage at being overshadowed by his mortal enemies.
Both the site and the vid should fetch more than a few chuckles from "G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero" fans. There's also a nod to the show's '09 event in Kansas City where fans parachuted 300 12" Joe action figures from the roof of a hotel - an occasion I regret missing with such fervor that my tear-soaked pillow may never dry.
Check out the full video, along with a Cobra-tastic official press release after the jump.
Cobra announces CobraCon 2010 in Providence, Rhode Island
Cobra Island – February 26, 2010 – Today, Cobra Commander has announced that Cobracon 2010 will be held at the Rhode Island Convention Center in Providence, Rhode Island from April 29th to May 2nd. Cobra wants to make sure that the fans of Cobra do not confuse this show with GIJoecon 2010, also being held in Providence, Rhode Island from April 29th to May 2nd. No, CobraCon will be FAR more exciting!!!
Unlike last year's convention (apologies again for the unexpected exposure of mind control gas at the Saturday Night Dinner event), this year's CobraCon promises a smooth and relatively danger free show, complete with a special appearance by Black Major and his trusty comrades, the Red Shadows. Along with special guests, art contests, an invasion of Hasbro's headquarters, panels and seminars featuring Hasbro and other Cobra supporters, this year's convention is THE show to attend!
