If you wanted to know more about the upcoming JoeCon 2013 before deciding whether or not to attend, a recent club press release detailing the convention’s entire schedule of activities, special guests and exclusive figure sets is now available in one convenient PDF file that you can download from their website.
Of course, the big news we’ve been waiting for is information on the new club exclusives! Fortunately, as with all of its previous conventions, the national GIjOE Collector’s Club hopes to accommodate the interests of all fans by releasing two different sets simultaneously. For fans of full-sized, 12″ GIjOEs, there is a new Adventure Team set dubbed “Secret Mission to Dragon Island.” (Joe loves those islands!). And for fans of the 3.75″ RAH “Little Joes,” there will be a new set called “Night Force: Nocturnal Fire.” Photos of the two sets have yet to be released, but details about their contents are also listed in the PDF file. In brief, here’s what each set contains:
Secret Mission to Dragon Island
Included in this 12” two figure set: Super Articulated G.I. Joe; Stealth Jumpsuit, Jump Helmet; Jump Goggles; Jump Boots; Parachute and Pack; Tuxedo Jacket, Tuxedo Pants; Dress Shirt; Bow Tie and Cumberbund; Dress Shoes; Disguise; Chemical Vial and Pistol.
Super Articulated Villain; Nehru Jacket; Dress Pants; Nehru Shirt; Dress Shoes; Chemical Suit; Belt; Chemical Boots, 2 Chemical Suit Hoods; 2 Pairs of Chemical Gloves; and Laser Rifle.
WOW! This sounds like a KILLER set! A Nehru Jacket? Chemical Suit Hoods? A Tuxedo? Holy, Jame Bond! Just imagine what the box art must look like. We can’t wait to see some pics of this one!
Includes: Charbroil, Hit & Run, Muskrat, Psyche-Out, Repeater and Spearhead with Max (NEW Bobcat). The Cobra Demolitions Team is ready to take on any obstacle that gets in their path of destruction. Led by the mysterious Cobra Mortal, he employs Cobra Letal and the deadly saboteur Crimson Asp (NEW female character). Their specialized troopers include: Cobra Frag-Vipers x 3, Cobra S.A.W.-Vipers x 3. Each of these great teams comes with their classic weapons, accessories, figure stands and file cards in this exciting fifteen figure boxed set.
Whoa! 15 FIGURES? This set is bound to become a HOT collectible among fans of the RAH figures. Whichever GIjOE-size you prefer (and many fans collect BOTH), these convention exclusives sound like they’ll make AWESOME new additions to your Joe Room.
