Thanks to OG13 member Ooyah for the heads up! Larry Hama will be attending the Action Figure Expo next weekend in Toronto.

2014 Guest Information

larry-hamaLARRY HAMA
Larry Hama is best known to fans as writer of the Marvel Comics licensed series G.I. Joe, based on the Hasbro line of military action figures. Hama said in a 2006 interview that he was given the job by then editor-in-chief Jim Shooter after every other writer at Marvel had turned it down. Hama at the time had recently pitched a Nick Fury: Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. spin-off series, Fury Force, about a special mission force. Hama used this concept as the back-story for G.I. Joe. He included military terms and strategies, Eastern philosophy, martial arts and historical references from his own background. The comic ran 155 issues (February 1982-October 1994).

Hama also wrote the majority of the G.I. Joe action figures’ file cards—short biographical sketches designed to be clipped from the G.I. Joe and Cobra cardboard packaging.[9] In 2007 these filecards were reprinted in the retro packaging for the G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero 25th Anniversary line.

At the 11th Annual Action Figure Expo Mr. Hama will be signing and meeting with the attendees as day long.

Eagle Force Returns in 2015

For those of you that remember Eagle Force from the early 80’s; well they are coming back in 2015 and according to Generalsjoes.com, “modern era G.I. Joe fans should be very pleased by the outcome!”

If you are not familar with these figures, well they were these Mask size toys that were metallic and individual characters for people to collect.

Eagle Force was created by the US Goverment to tackle R.I.O.T ( Roving International Organization of Tyranny). a terrorist organization that was driven by world domination. Eagle Force was assembled from the finest of the US armed forces. Led by Captain Eagle,the eye patched Eagle commanded a group of military experts with codenames such as Big Bro’, Harley, Turk and The Cat. R.I.O.T was lead by the evil General Mamba and his henchmen Savitar the Ninja and the evil Arsonist Beta Man. Like G.I. Joe, Eagle Force used comic book adventures to market the line, beautfully illustrated, the Eagle Force line was created by Paul Kirchner a known Heavy Metal contributor. The then 29 year old Kirchner beautifully fleshed out the characters originally envisioned by Mego VP Bill Baron as being the “Screaming Eagles”. http://www.megomuseum.com/misc/eagleforce.shtml
