    I am asking for everyone that comes to the meet to please bring a donation of can food items. I want to raise as much donation items as possible for the people of Puerto Rico suffering from the devestation of hurricane Maria. I was contacted by someone who does not even collect toys but heard of the meet and asked if we would consider donating our donations to help the people devestated by Maria and with out hesitation I said yes. Let’s do our best to help the people of P.R. Thank you cobra island members.

    The 2017 Dirty South G.I.Joe Meet Up has come and gone. For being the first, it was definitely awesome! The event was held at The Uncanny Comic Shop in Clermont, FL. If you're ever in the area, make sure to stop by as the shop staff is amazing. They welcomed a bunch of G.I.Joe geeks with open arms and made us all feel right at home.



    There was a great turn out, with all sorts of awesome vendors on hand like Aaron Gildea, Irving Santiago of UltraCon, Dreadnok Dread and JoeRepro.com to name just a few. Alongside the vendors, there was of course everything you'd find in a Comic Shop, so there was something for everyone. It was great to see so many kids too, as we all have to do our part to get the next generation hooked on our beloved modern army action figures.

    The Dirty South Meet even had its own exclusive figure, a Black Major Urban Assault Trooper in Vibrant Red & Blue, with black and silver highlights. JoeRepro.com made custom box for the figure, with branding from the event. There was so much awesome to digest, that we're going to highlight different aspects in individual posts, so stay tuned for more from the show, including updates throughout the week. We'll have reviews of the Black Major Exclusive White & Red Alley Viper, the Joe Repro Exclusive Night Force Steel Brigade figure and rounding things out with a review of one of the amazing backdrops offered by JoeRepro!


    The end of the show brought a raffle with awesome prizes - 1st place took home a Convention Exclusive Missile Command Playset, 2nd place snagged a Black Major Exclusive Starduster and 3rd Place, which was won by our own MegsTriggerMan, was a pair of killer Night Force Steel Brigade Iron On Patches! The best part? No, not the prizes - All proceeds from the raffle are going to help relief efforts in Puerto Rico. That's how awesome Albert and the folks at The Uncanny Comic Shop are, so again, if you're in the area, make sure to stop by!

    Now, when I tell you that all in attendance had a good time, it's an understatement. A heartfelt congratulations from all of here on Cobra Island goes to Mr. Albert Torres! Albert went out of his way to make this event a special one and by the looks on everyone's faces, I can tell you without a doubt that we're ready for the next!

    2017 Dirty South G.I.Joe Meet Spotlight - Show Exclusive Black Major Alley Viper



    Although it was the first time the Dirty South G.I.Joe Meet was held, our good friend Albert came out of the gate swinging, offering a show exclusive figure!


    Show attendees had the opportunity to take home a Black Major Exclusive Urban Assault Trooper. This vintage style Alley Viper, in a vibrant Cobra Blue and Red with Black and Silver highlights, was an instant hit. For those of you familiar with Black Major's figures, then you know the quality associated with this release. The figure includes all of his iconic gear -



    • Face Mask
    • Weapon
    • Backpack with removable Hook
    • Shield


    As if the Exclusive wasn't cool enough, Albert enlisted the help of JoeRepro.com who made an Exclusive Box for the figure that even had show exclusive branding! How cool is that? We took it up a notch and included some of the amazing Diorama pieces that Dreadnok Dread had on hand for the pictorial, but you'll have to buy those separately.
