Tiger Force Roadblock pre-production sample revealed!

notpicard, the lucky Joefan who got his hands on an unreleased Training Snake Eyes figure has come through again with another gem, this one quite possibly more desirable than the last.  Through sources known only to him, he was able to get a full paint sample test shot of the unreleased Tiger Force Roadblock!  This long rumored figure was originally thought to come as a single pack in Wave 15 (judging by silhouettes on the back of Wave 14 carded samples).

Until now, however, no actual samples had ever been seen.  Well, thanks to notpicard and the guys at JoeIntel, we can now get our first glimpse at this figure…check out the thread here, or the images I’ve been allowed to mirror below!

One has to wonder that if he managed to get this figure, what else is out there in unreleased form?  Some of the rumored Python Patrol figures perhaps?  I, for one, look forward to the revelations!

The latest G.I. Joe Collectors’ Club newsletter is hitting mailboxes, and reports are coming in that the first assortment of Pursuit of COBRA figures is shown in full color glory inside!  Due to copyright reasons the GIJCC images will not be mirrored here, however I’ve linked the figures below to pictures gathered from JoeCon 2009:

ARCTIC THREAT

DESERT BATTLE

JUNGLE ASSAULT

It’s not exactly clear what assortments are what, or when these will be released, though I’d imagine we’ll see them before years end, which rocks my world!  Of course, don’t forget to hit up the Pursuit of COBRA SuperPage for the lowdown on everything…
