    The G.I.Joe Collectors Club has announced a new guest for the G.I.Joe Collectors Convention, none other than Mr. Kurt Groen! From the Club –

    KURT GROEN joined the G.I. Joe Design Team at Hasbro, Inc. in January 1989. Kurt's first day on the job led him into designing his first 3 3/4" G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero action figure: VAPOR, the Cobra Hurricane Pilot. Kurt joined the team just in time for the company to start producing spring-loaded launchers. This addition of "weapons that really shoot" enhanced the play value of the G.I. Joe toy line through the 1990s. His head was used as the basis to create the 1992 Oktober Guard action figure: BIG BEAR.

    Kurt designed and developed all sizes of G.I. Joe, from the 3 3/4" to the 12" Hall of Fame and Classic Collection, including Sgt. Savage and his Screaming Eagles, along with G.I. Joe: Extreme. Kurt was lucky to work on numerous other popular Hasbro toy lines including: Jurassic Park, Starting Lineup, Winner's Circle, WWF, Tonka, Playskool, Dinosaurs to name a few. After many years at Hasbro, Kurt moved on from toy design to Product Development in Sporting Goods where he works today.

    Thanks to our friends from Just another G.I.Joe Show for the heads up! Are you excited for this latest guest announcement?

    While I think it's not okay to share pics from the comments, that Major Altitude with the battle copter and the Cobra hideout are insanely cool.

    Thanks for the information, CIAD!
