See Us at Heroes in Action June 24-26 in Minneapolis
Friday, June 17, 2005

Just when you thought we couldn't possibly rack up more frequent flier miles, the road gang has added another show to our summer convention schedule.

McFarlane staffers will be attending our inaugural GI Joe Heroes in Action convention. The 2005 event is taking place at the Marriott City Center in Minneapolis, MN, June 24-26.

This is our first time attending this seminal yearly convention and we'll be unveiling our first series of McFarlane's Military action figures in all their detailed glory. If you need more information on these figures -- which are truly authentic 6-inch representations of modern American fighting forces -- check out the new online feature here.

Not only will attendees to the convention get a firsthand look at McFarlane Toys' military figures ... they'll actually be the first to be able to purchase them. That's correct, we will have a limited number of our first McFarlane's Military action figure series onsite for sale. We'll also have some military two-up prototypes on display as well as other current action figures for fans to view firsthand.

The GI Joe Convention is fun for the entire family and is one of the premiere figure conventions in existence. There is an entire range of activities planned for attendees.

The show has a registered guest preview Friday, June 24, from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, June 25, registered preview is 8:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. with general admission at 10 a.m.; the show closes at 5 p.m. Sunday, June 26, the exhibit is open 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.
