If you have been a part of the Joe Community for a few years you most likely know the name of GYRE VIPER aka Gary “Goggles” Head. He was a big part of Joe Con, Whats on Joe Mind, Joe Declassified and many other parts of the Joe Community. He was a member here and on many other Joe sites. He didnt consider himself a Dromer, or a Tanker, or any other site specific name. He was a Joe Fan. He was the source of inside information, prototypes, and stories about the beginnings of A Real American Hero. He was friends with many of the people behind GIJOE, and friends with many within the community. As the Lurker I am I have had the pleasure to talk to alot of people within the community, and Gyre was one of the best. He was always humble, honest, and never treated me like he was better than me in any way. My Thoughts and Condolences go out to his family. He will be missed by many people.
If you want to tell stories about Gyre, or learn about him from others who met him, click into the forums to talk with us, or feel free to go on facebook and talk with some of the many people who knew him.

Jason over at POPCRITICA got an email from Hunter PR on behalf of Hasbro. It states that no new G.I. Joe product will be on display at Toy Fair next month. They are still in the process of planning and will not be ready in time for the annual toy trade show. They will however have something for the 2015 JoeCon in Springfield, IL during April 9–12. Stay tuned for more as it becomes available.

It’s been a while since I have done much posting, in the forums and especially on the Front Page. Not that we have really had alot of Joe News to Post, but there has been some and I haven’t been doing a very good job of covering it. That hopefully will end now. I am planning on putting alot more focus into the site than I have recently. I have got out of collecting for the most part, but that hasn’t really changed my love for all things Gi JOE. I hope to see you in the Chat and in the Forums, Hark.
