One of my favorite moments in G.I. Joe the movie, was when Sargent Slaughter and his Marauders first appear, to train Lt.Falcon! So you can only imagine how excited I am, to see Sarge again at Retro Con 2018! If you haven’t purchased your TICKETS yet, why wait?! Join in the fun and do check out Saturday Night’s concert too!
Straight from the Retro Con Page!
We welcome back to Retro Con a true living legend: The one and only Sgt. Slaughter!
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.
