Thar she blows!
Just as I’m settling in to record the latest episode of Whats on Joe Mind, the news breaks from New York. The latest 7-Packs have been revealed by HissTank.com and Toy News International…and WOW. Some fantastic pictures especially are available over on Toy News International.
The two 7-Packs will consist of The Dreadnoks and the Marauders. The Marauders obviously pull inspiration from the Slaughter’s Marauders, but with no Slaughter included, and also paired with Slaughter’s first team, The Renegades.
Meanwhile, the Dreadnoks truly retain the spirit of the Dreadnoks and manage to fill in pretty much every single empty spot on your Dreadnok roster. Amazing. Truly amazing. Breaking down the two sets we have:
- Zandar (new head sculpt, Zartan parts, Arctic Storm Shadow torso, new gear)
- Zanya (new head, Zarana parts) …also… HELL YES.
- Thrasher (new shoulder pad, new head, new battle club)
- Zanzibar (new head, new webgear, some RoC Arctic Storm Shadow parts)
- Road Pig (Resolute Roadblock body, new head, freaking AWESOME stop sign club and shield!)
- Gnawgahyde (looks like a new head, some PoC Recondo parts, new vest)
- Burn Out (new head, based on the 2003 Spy Troops figure)
- Lt. Falcon (New head sculpt, removable beret, PoC Dusty parts)
- Mercer (New head, some PoC Cobra Viper parts, real COBRA tattoo!!)
- Taurus (AWESOME new head, new webgear)
- Red Dog (New head, repaint Bazooka body)
- Low Light (PoC repaint in green camouflage with some Marauder colors)
- Barbecue (25th Anniversary repaint with 30th Airtight Arms and legs in green camouflage with some Marauder colors)
- Spirit (PoC Spirit repaint with some Marauder colors mixed in)
As mentioned, awesome images are available at Toy News International, and they pretty much blow me away. You’ll have to forgive my minor brevity, I’m in the midst of recording Episode 25 of What’s on Joe Mind as I type.
