Final list of 2011 JoeCon Exclusive items (and production numbers)

Roshan, once again over at HissTank.com has come through with a final tally/list of the Exclusives for this year’s JoeCon!  No images, but the listing would appear to be accurate, and is as follows:

  • Relampago and gatilho: LE 650
  • PP Stinger with PP Motor Viper 500
  • PP Water moccasin LE 400
  • MOC Dial-Tone LE 600
  • Silver edition Cobra Commander LE 500
  • PP Tele Viper parachute trooper LE 500
  • Freebie Armadillo

For folks wondering how these will look…  Relampago and Gathilo are based on existing Brazilian exclusive figures in Python Patrol deco, using Ripcord and Airborne as base figures:

  1. Relampago
  2. Gatilho

The Python Patrol Stinger and Motor Viper are pretty self explanatory.  Motor-Viper was spotted on eBay a few weeks ago, and is a Python Patrol repaint of the Steel Crusher driver.

As I previously mentioned, the Water Moccasin is likely based on the Brazilian Hedroelice De Emboscada.

The MOC Dial Tone we’ve seen before, and is the GIJCC Exclusive incentive Dial Tone, only mint on card.

Silver edition Cobra Commander?  Absolutely no clue on this one.

The Parachute Tele-Viper was also spotted on eBay a short while ago.

And there you have it.  Obviously, this post is probably considered useless without pictures, but it’s all I’ve got at the moment.  Expect more information tomorrow as the actual items are unveiled!

GIJCC JoeCon 2011 Exclusive Items Revealed – Now with Images!

Well, JoeCon officially begins tomorrow night, but thanks to some “Golden Ticket” members and a few enterprising Joefans, we now have some information about the 2011 JoeCon Exclusives!  Tonight folks were allowed to grab some of their items, and also got a peek at the Club Comic, which showcased many of the characters we’ll be seeing in the convention set this year.

I will update this list as we find out more information…the news comes straight from the JoeBattleLines Twitter Feed!

UPDATE – Roshan from HissTank.com has posted some images that I’ve mirrored below!

Items of note so far are:

  • The “Freebie Item” is a repaint of the Rise of Cobra Armadillo – The Armadillo is repainted in jungle camouflage for the Mission: Brazil Joe team
  • The Comic contains a Python Patrol deco’d Cobra Stinger, quite possibly with the previously seen Motor-Viper as the driver
  • The Comic also contains a red Water Moccasin, likely a tribute to the South American repaint, known there as the Hidroelice De Emboscada

What to expect for JoeCon 2011 Coverage

So…for one of the very few years since 2003 I will not be a JoeCon in Orlando this year.  The primary reason for this was initially because I was traveling out of town for work next week, but now as it turns out, my daughter Allison will be having surgery on Friday.  This was initially scheduled for February, but various reschedulings have taken place, and now she’s slotted in for a Friday appointment.

The procedure would be minor in most cases, but on an 18 month old, it is not quite so minor, and so, for obvious reasons, that is where my main focus will be for Friday and for a chunk of the weekend.  If I have the opportunity, I will certainly provide coverage and insight, and will most likely do some evening recaps, but I just wanted to let folks know ahead of time what was up.

I am extremely fired up to see what Hasbro has to offer, and I’m just as excited to bring coverage to my readers as I ever have been, but real life may intercede this weekend, and I appreciate everyone realizing this, and understanding that any lack of at-the-second coverage this weekend is not a result of any personal opinions with the brand.

Even if those bastards did kill G.I. Joe: Renegades.  :shifty:
