I feel safe in saying one of the most anticipated G.I. Joe 50th Anniversary sets for 2015 is the “Silent Strike” set which is slated to come with a stealth Skystriker, a COBRA HISS with their new rail gun system, as well as some great figures including Captain Ace and Sightline himself.
As many will recall, Sightline is named after Gary “Goggles” Head, the mouthpiece of our tight knit G.I. Joe community who unfortunately passed away far too young several months ago.
Along with this, Ace and Sightline are members of the “Wolf Squad” Hasbro’s new (somewhat informal) team concept.
Fans are rampaging Toys “R” Us stores across the country looking for this set, but Big Bad Toy Store has your hook up right now. Click the link below and grab it…save yourself some gas and some trouble.
Somehow this summer, the coming of this year’s Coil Con snuck up on me. Hitting the mean streets of Dayton, Ohio on August 16th, the Midwest Coil Club always puts on a heck of a show.
This year they’ll be producing an exciting exclusive two pack for the event, featuring a very SUPER member of the G.I. Joe team. They just revealed him on their Facebook event page, and he’s pretty great.
Even if the exclusive figures aren’t your thing, there will be some great events this year from James Kavanaugh, Jr, the What’s on Joe Mind podcast, and an impressive array of dealers. Check out the full details below.
COIL Con 6 will be taking place on August 16 at the Holiday Inn Dayton/Fairfield , 2800 Presidential Drive, Dayton, OH 45324. We do have a block of rooms set aside for a special convention rate — if it fills, we can get more so long as there is availability. Con rates are available on the nights of August 14 and 15 (Friday/Saturday nights).
Special events include, but not limited to:
WOJM: What’s on JOE Mind?? Live!
R.A.H.C. Guide Presents: A Modern Recap
A Theater debut of the fan film: “Scales of Injustice.”
Admission is $5 at the door and G.I. Joe costumes get in free.
*Please note: Arriving soley in a camo shirt and/or camo pants will not be considered a costume unless you are active military nor will (but not limited to) “Character X” in civilian clothes or Chuckles in only a Hawaiian Shirt. Staff will not adhere to a strict policy but please do not try to take advantage of a special circumstance. Thanks.
August 15 will feature a group tour of the National Air Force Museum (http://www.nationalmuseum.af.mil/) at Wright-Patterson AFB in Dayton. Admission is always free at the museum.
