Another figure revealed for the 2012 G.I. Joe Convention Exclusive set

Sticking with the theme over the past week, the G.I. Joe Collectors’ Club has revealed another member of the 2012 Convention Exclusive boxed set.  This time around, we get a look at the awesome Iron Grenadier Elite Trooper!

And wow, this is a good one!  Slated as a troop builder with two figures in the boxed set, I see a lot of great Crimson Guard elements in this figure, and he’s using the unreleased Arctic Cobra Commander tooling, which rocks!  First time many fans will be getting their hands on these parts.

I’m not wild about that large rifle, but this figure actually looks really, really nice.  I can’t help but notice a lack of consistency with the troopers, but I think this red and silver looks great.  And this would seem to be the last of the troopers.  Hopefully tomorrow we’ll see a new Iron Grenadier named character, or the last two members of the Oktober Guard.

Check out the mirrored image below, and keep your eye on GIJoeCon.com for the latest details!

  1. The gray coat is definitely my favorite of the IG troopers shown, but I like this one a lot, too. Definitely a strong second. As for the weapons, I’ll probably arm everyone in the set with something from Marauder.

  2. I’m not exactly crazy about the IG offerings mostly because of their origin being a cancelled set that I wasn’t particularly excited about in the first place. Out of the IG shown so far, this is my favorite; the silver coat is probably my second. I do not like the grey trooper with the resolute cobra commander parts. I hope we get a IG lieutenant we haven’t seen in years. I am kind of hoping Metal Head and Destro don’t make a showing as any part of the convention; more so Destro.

  3. Bleh! Why would they use 25th v2 Hawk’s arms for this? The other one was just using the normal Destro arms that came with the mold! What a terrible choice…now only one of those hands will hold anything. How strange…

  4. The canceled slide photo showed this one with darker red color & gold highlights.
    This one is meh.
    To the IG fire truck Destro’s castle is on fire!

  5. Apparently the Club conveyed through their Facebook page that they will be indeed golden colored instead of yellow.
    So they may end up looking like the ones in the slide.
