The above is a bit facetious. But, it was also representative of collector sentiment of the time. The most baffling release in Operation Anacondo, though, was Major Storm. At the time, he was an unknown in the community. And, even his relative rarity due to his inclusion with the General wasn't a selling point. 17 years later, this guy stands as one of the great oddities of the convention set era. He's not a figure anyone really cares about or spends time chasing down. But, he exists and it was good that at least one oddball Joe got released in the 2000's. Of course, there's little content on this guy out there. But, here's the oldies but goodies on the Convention Major Storm.

2003 Convention Major Storm - Around the Web
Collectors anticipated the 2003 Convention set reveal with great zeal. It was just assumed that the set would be a massive cadre of classic army builders in excellent colors. The, the reveal came. First, the army builders were not the Vipers, BATS or Cobra Troopers that collectors demanded. But, even worse, the set included 3 G.I. Joe figures! 3 slots that could have been the Cobras collectors demanded were wasted!
