October 20th was also home to COIL Con 9, a Midwest G.I. Joe Toy and Comic Convention that is one of the premiere events of the G.I.Joe Convention going season. Although I was unable to attend the event, we at least have the opportunity to live vicariously through the eyes of others who enjoyed the show. Let’s get to it!

Mr. Christopher McLeod of The Full Force was in attendance alongside his Wife, Mrs. Kate McLeod of Kate’s Customs, Props & Cosplay. Christopher has put together this fantastic video of highlights from the event. Check it out –
