It’s been quite a long wait for GIjOE fans, but the GIjOE Collector’s Club has FINALLY put up some initial sneak pics of its 2012 convention exclusives. Collectors of the “little guys” (3.75″ figures) are looking at a new group called the “Oktober Guard,” consisting (so far) of two males and one female figure. They’re amazingly well-detailed and come complete with removable accessories, weapons and gear. Stunning!

For fans of the 12″ line, the club is showing only some box art from an upcoming set dubbed the “Last Man Standing.” The figure itself looks to be a Desert Adventurer, armed with some “heavy weapons” and wearing a tan AT uniform and a vintage-style cap. Last year’s dune buggy is also shown peeking into the frame, suggesting an implied use with that versatile vehicle.

The box art features an excellent painting by GIjOE packaging illustrator extraordinaire, Larry Selman and depicts an Adventurer striding across an almost Martian dunescape. In a future article, we plan to go into greater detail about all the superb work Mr. Selman has done for GijOE over the years, plus his current extraordinary line of military posters and prints.

Superb news all around, Joeheads! Both of these sets look very exciting and superbly executed. We’ll keep our eyes peeled and post any additional updates as they become available.

    I like the idea of a two figure Adventure Team set which means we’re going to get another 12 inch villain. I’m a little disappointed that we still haven’t gotten a 12 inch African American super articulated Adventurer.
