So now it gets good again… I think most of us sort of knew what to expect from the last two days once the first Iron Grenadier: Elite Trooper was revealed. It was evident that the Club was using that canceled 5-Pack as inspiration and we were likely to see most of those troopers within the confines of the Convention set.
Well, all three troopers have been revealed, and with the Club publicly stating that they would not include Destro with this set, the floodgates are wide open again! What will they reveal today? Dragonsky? Horror Show? An Iron Grenadier character figure?! My mind was running wild… and like clockwork, at 3:20pm Eastern Time, we got our answer!
Wow! What a terrific looking figure! The combination of Accelerator Suit parts, Pursuit of Cobra Beachhead parts… he retains the general look of his color scheme, yet is darkened just a bit. A new head sculpt and awesome removable helmet! In spite of the slight dip of the grey uniformed Iron Grenadier, this Convention Set is shaping up to be one of the best of all time. Truly an amazing looking addition to the set with this figure and I am giddy with anticipation to see what we might get at the show itself. As always, keep your eyes peeled to GIJoeCon.com for the latest information as it appears.
Bring on the brochure and bring on registration! Let’s do this thing!!
