    We welcome back to Retro Con a true living legend: The one and only Sgt. Slaughter!



    [​IMG]


    A wrestler for over 40 years, Sgt. Slaughter became a household name when he joined the WWF in the early 1980s with his signature “Cobra Clutch” move. Inspired by the Sarge’s drill instructor persona and wild popularity, Hasbro decided to incorporate the Sarge into their GI Joe: A Real American Hero toy line, comic, and animated series in 1985! Voicing himself, his cartoon debut was in the Season 2 Arise Serpentor Arise mini series, where we learn the Sarge is one of the GI Joe team’s greatest warriors and trainers. The character is easily a fan-favorite and is still regularly talked about by Joe fans to this day.



    Sgt. Slaughter will be at the show all weekend for autograph and photo ops. We’ll have his prices up on the website very soon. Come to Retro Con and meet one of the true icons of pop culture!!

    One of our favorite parts of putting on Retro Con is seeing all the unique retro-related T-shirts that attendees wear around the show floor… so this year we’ve decided to turn it into a brand new contest!


    [​IMG]


    Hosted by The Breaux Show, the Totally Tubular T-shirt Contest will be held on Saturday at Retro Con! Your t-shirt can be vintage, new, or custom made. As long as it's a t-shirt and is retro related, you're welcome to enter!

    Top prize is a Super Nintendo Classic Edition system, with the 2nd place winner getting a Masterpiece Bumblebee figure, and 3rd place receiving a $35 gift card for 80sTees.com, Inc.!

    See full info and rules at the link below (Rule 1: No water is involved [​IMG] )

    Retro Con’s Totally Tubular T-Shirt Contest!

    A big thanks to the Breaux Show for donating the $35 gift card to the contest!

    Although we are very saddened that Melendy Britt cannot join us this year, we have another very talented individual stepping up to take her place at the show: Actress B.J. Ward!

    [​IMG]

    B.J. is known for several very popular characters in the retro realm. Two of her stand-out roles include fiery Counter Intelligence agent "Scarlett" on Marvel/Sunbow's GI Joe cartoon series, and the noble Princess Allura on the original Voltron!

    You may also have heard B.J. as Wonder Woman in the The Super Powers Team: Galactic Guardians series from 1985, Small Foot on Challenge of the GoBots, the plotting Witch Haggar on Voltron, Sincia on Saber Rider & the Star Sheriffs, Betty Rubble in various Flintstones productions from the 80's to the early 2000's, several characters on the original My Little Pony cartoon, and she also voiced brainy Velma Dinkley in several Scooby Doo animated movies from the late 90's and early 2000's!

    B.J. does NOT attend many conventions these days, so don't miss this rare chance to meet her!!

    A big thank you to B.J. for agreeing to attend Retro Con on such short notice, and also a special thanks to the fine folks over at CelebWorx for their exceptional work in making this appearance possible!

    Check out B.J. Ward's huge body of work on imdb!
