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 GIJoeClub.com for all the latest details!

  1. I don’t think we’re getting Tiger Force either. The Club said the set will be nothing they’ve done in the past and Tiger Force was part of the Dreadnok set from a few years back.

    What does that leave for the Joes though? Could it be the Joes won’t be part of a sub-group and simply be some figures in jungle cammo?

  2. I’m on the wave-length that the set is going to be Special Missions Brazil (hence the Membership Dial-Tone). As far as the Cobra troop builder… I have no idea. My guess would be Python Patrol, but most of the original line saw release during the 25th line (with the exception of the Tele-viper and Python Trooper).

  3. The thing to remember are the two Brazilian Python Patrol figures, Gatilho and Relampago. Both Airborne and Spc. Altitude (aka Ripcord) figures were made in the modern line, so doing PP versions of them would be a no brainer. Add the Python Tele-Viper and Trooper that Andrew mentioned above and you are well on your way. Heck, repaint a ROC Nitro Viper like a Motor-Viper so we can have Python Stun drivers.

  4. Good call, Matthew. I didn’t even think about Gatilho and Relampago in the set. That would be awesome!
