    Why saying that "particular year"? I gave the example of 2011 because I had the filecards on hands. But these filecards are from the 2010 set:

    Then, I can provide the 2011 and 2012 sets :-) Maybe more...

    What is the process to make a place for the CJC exclusives on YoJoe?

    I'll chime in on this.

    The CanJoeCon figures are as official as any of the pre-factory produced figures starting in the late 90s. That is to say, as legitimate as the DeSimone figures.

    The CanJoeCon figures had Hasbro Canada endorsement as mass assembled customs. These were not dedicated or shared production figures, nor were they made in a factory. They are, for all intents and purposes, customs.

    Really, super-duper customs, but customs. Legit customs. But customs.

    So, they will go into the convention figure section OR the international section as what they are, right along side the DeSimone figures. They're Canadian so...likely the international archives.

    They're official, but with an asterisk.

    I think it will be cool when they are added. If its Hasbro sponsered, then it should be on our hit lists
