This last weekend in Toronto Canada, the 2012 Canadian Joe Convention was held. Officer member Charade attended the Convention and has brought back Intel to the states. Here is a quote from Charade on Hasbro:
The biggest disappoint was the lack of Hasbro Canada. They were scheduled for a panel near the end of the day, but reportedly they cancelled that about a week ago. According to the CJC administrators, Hasbro Canada pulled out due to a corporate-wide policy of minimizing the dissemination of information to the public for the immediate future. Supposedly, this is because of delay of the Retaliation movie, which disrupted their original plans for Joe’s future. The CJC staff told us that, while Hasbro International re-evaluates the future strategies for G.I. Joe, contact between Hasbro and the public will be minimal. Hasbro did show up to the CJC and set up a booth with figures and vehicles from upcoming Retaliation waves, but the representatives left early in the day, so there wasn’t much of an opportunity to interact with them.
What do you think about this “Media Blackout” that Hasbro is instituting?

Big Thanks to Officer member Charade for sharing his Convention experience.
