G.I. Joe Collectors Club reveals another G.I. Joe Convention Exclusive – VOLTAR!

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!

VOLTAR!

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!!

    I guessed a day early. :( Oh well. I had a feeling he would be chosen. This is a really cool version too with a full head sculpt and all.

  • Hawkwinter

    That is kick ass!

  • Southzen

    You know, for once, for me, outlandish colors work.

  • Gigamach

    Yee-haw! I can’t wait to buy this whole set. All of them have been out-of-the-park homeruns for me so far!

    Pretty awesome.

    Although I just realised that this might’ve been out last, best chance at turning that awesome Matt Trakker gear into a Vindicator. Probably would rather have had that than some of the IGs. Alley Viper needs his hetero wardrobe partner. :(

    What no Vulture ….lol Anyway great looking figure. This set is going to rock. This plus Retaliation( toys and movie) and the FSS, GIJOE is going to rule my year.

    LoL They grey trenchcoat grenadier is the only figure I’d even want out of all these. Maybe a Voltar just for nostalhia sake, but that grey IG has a really cool WWII vibe to it.

  • Scott

    Now that’s cool!

  • Alexx

    WHOA, winner! Best in set so far. Not that I’ll be able to afford any of this, but I can appreciate a good figure when I see one.

  • Erik

    Now THAT is nice.

  • monkey boy

    very cool but definitely wish he had a vulture.

    I found out where he got his gun. At 14m15s if it doesn’t load properly.
