JoeCon? Forget it… make mine CobraCon!

Well it must be that time of year again… sick and tired of the publicity the Joes are getting from the annual JoeCon, Cobra Commander has led an all out assault on JoeCon 2011 in Orlando!  In fact, it looks like he’s taking it over for Cobra!
Check out, and take a peek at the YouTube video below.

Excellent.  Thanks to The Terror Drome for the information.

New picture of JoeCon 2011 Exclusive Claymore

Over on the G.I. Joe Collectors’ Club Facebook page, a quick image of the upcoming JoeCon exclusive Claymore figure was revealed!  And it rocks.  I love the character as it is, and they have provided a really, really cool update.  I especially love the Special Forces emblem on his chest featuring “De Oppresso Liber” (to free the oppressed).
And he’s totally Magnum.

Excuse the quick and dirty Photoshop.  The real image is mirrored below, and can also be found at the aforementioned G.I. Joe Collectors Club Facebook page.

Another clue revealed for 2011 JoeCon Exclusive Set

Over on the GIJoeClub Message Boards, “The Commander” has posted yet another clue for the upcoming 2011 JoeCon Convention Exclusive set!

“These snakes like to hide in the heat!”

Sounds to me like we’re still talking about some  sort of Cobra jungle set…  and if they’re hiding, that would indicate camouflage.  And what’s the best camouflage Cobra has?  The Python Patrol technology rendered them completely invisible to radar and electronic detection… hmmm…  so at this point, we have three total clues:

  • “My, you look good in that camo pattern!”
  • “Time for a Rumble in the Jungle!”
  • “These snakes like to hide in the heat!”

So yes, it would certainly appear that a jungle themed battle involving two teams in camouflage would certainly apply.  I know Tiger Force is a popular suggestion…for some reason I don’t see it.  Python Patrol, though, that certainly sounds feasible.  Whatever it is, with the vast library of modern era tooling at their disposal, I think we’ll see some pretty cool stuff.
Continue hypothesizing!  The convention is relatively early in the year next year, so revelations should start coming soon, I would imagine.  Keep your eyes peeled to for all the latest details!
