Whoever laid down cash that Repulsor was going to be a Sludge-Viper, please proceed to window #4 to pick up your winnings!
Yes, G.I. Joe fans, we officially do have a Sludge-Viper has part of the 2014 G.I. Joe Convention Set, and its “Director of Security” Repulsor! As many folks guessed, the Repulsor name referenced some early artwork for the Sludge Viper character that used that name instead of the final approved version.
Surprisingly, there are no new parts to this figure, using a Zombie Viper helmet and pretty much a full blown 30th Anniversary Techno-Viper from the neck down. It’s an interesting choice, and does tie him in somewhat with Cesspool, Zombie Viper, and the Toxo-Viper, as the former uses the Techno-Viper vest, and the latter uses the Techno Viper legs (with the Zombie Viper reference sandwiched between). There’s a cool sense of cohesion here. I do wonder who’s head is underneath there… guess we’ll find out at some point! Check out GIJoeCon.com and the image is mirrored below.
It’s another installment of the great New Jersey Collectors Convention! With some terrific door prizes and awesome guest stars from Boss Fight Studios, it’s a great show covering the gamut from G.I. Joe to Transformers, Thundercats, and more.
Door prizes this year include a full case of G.I. Joe: Retaliation Wave 3.5, a 12″ Cobra Commander figure from Sideshow Collectibles, as well as 3 unique one-off figures from the mind of Kevin Watts…it’s going to be a fun time!
