As usual, by examining the comic book/program that came with the boxed sets last night, you can get a decent idea of what the exclusive items might be once revealed tonight.
I’ve included some small images from the comic, and a run down of what we can probably expect.
Steel Brigade Pilot w/ VTOL
No real idea about the pilot himself, but a quick panel from the comic shows the Pursuit of Cobra Ghost Hawk, which is definitely a VTOL aircraft, so that would seem to answer that question. I wonder if it’s color scheme will be based off the Steel Brigade Sky Hawk from 2005?
Cobra Septic Tank MK II
Images from the comic show a DTC HISS! That is a pretty pleasant surprise, I suspect. We haven’t seen this vehicle since it was used in the DTC line, and it was a surprise to me to see that the Club may have used it for this convention set.
G.I. Joe Rescue Ops 2 Pack
Near the end of the comic, Clutch and an unnamed driver of an ECO Warrior themed Ninja Combat Cruiser appear! We see no mention of the Combat Cruiser itself, but we do see Clutch and a small hint of a driver, who almost looks to be wearing a knit cap? Perhaps these are the two “Rescue Ops” members?
Steel Brigade Zombie 3-Pack
I think it’s safe to assume these are based off the concept case figures, and they are shown throughout the comic as well.
Now, neither the Kre-O set nor Night Force Crazylegs were shown in the comic (unless that’s Crazylegs driving the jeep with Clutch, considering the PoC version had that knit cap underneath his helmet) but I think we can all assume what we’re getting there.
It’s still unknown to me whether or not Crazylegs is indeed the “Parachute” figure. It certainly seems likely, but the Club did not explicitly state that in the program. They did mention that he’s a “Paratrooper” so that really seems to lead that direction, though. Something tells me ole Crazylegs might be the sleeper hit this year.
