Hasbro to have No Presence at Joecon 2014!

It has been confirmed by Hasbro that there will not be any presence by the company at Joecon 2014. This is pretty disappointing news since this is the 50th anniversary. It would have been nice for them to have a booth of some sort. Even if it was more like a museum display. It is a bit understandable since there is no Hasbro design team working on G.I.JOE at this time. Still I am going to miss the big diorama they usually have, not to mention the action figure card that you can stand in to have your picture taken. This also leaves two hours of programming for the club to fill. I suppose they already knew that and have panels in place. I do hope that they are able to get some interesting panel content. They do have a pretty big guest list this year. It just does not seem quite like Joecon with no Hasbro there. For those of you who do not attend or have not attended, there are times when you get the opportunity to sit down one on one with the people who are in charge and offer your opinions and ideas for the line. Not only that but you can hobnob if you choose to; during casino night. I have no doubt some ideas tossed about at conventions do stick in the designers heads when they return to Pawtucket. So I hope we see Sideshow or IDW or some of the other companies like Boss Fight Studios in the showroom. Maybe even Joecustoms will have a bigger better dio than Hasbro! Gotta think positive.
