io9.com has revealed that the 2017 SDCC G.I. Joe exclusive will be a reproduction of the previous Sears Exclusive Cobra Missile Command center with an MSRP of $50.
By the looks of it, the set will include a vintage style box slightly modernized cardboard reproduction of the command center itself, and three figures.
The figures are a combination of parts and pieces from previous releases of figures, and COBRA Commander features his “Mickey Mouse” style logo. A very interesting choice, with some neat vintage spirit. Check out the full details at io9.com and the images below.
Good morning! So the rush of the Golden Ticket pick up is over and we’ve had some time to digest some more information from the comic book.
Some random thoughts:
The original Corrosao was a Brazilian DeeJay repaint. He appears in the comic both looking like Tele-Viper AND looking like DeeJay. Which is it?
It definitely looks like the B.A.T. Rocket Glider 2 Pack are repaints from the old COBRA Jet Pack (last used as a Target exclusive from Rise of COBRA).
The pilots of the COBRA Sky Serpent looks like it might be a variation of the Laser Viper. Perhaps a Laser Viper Officer? You can see a slightly different colored Laser Viper in the pilot’s seat and jumping from the exploding Sky Serpent below.
The Vector Jet was up in question for a bit, based on the design of the jet in the comic, but more and more I’m suspecting that it might just be the Conquest, especially based on the uneven artwork elsewhere in the comic itself.
Below check out a bunch of other images from the comic. Big thanks as always to Phil from YoJoe and Chris from The Full Force for these great images!
