Along with the slideshow and display cases, our old friends at Hunter PR have also provided the official press images for new items revealed at GIJoeCon 2012 including:
Ultimate Snake Eyes with Timber
Cobra Combat Ninja
Cobra Night Landing Mission with Cobra Eel
Ninja Showdown Assortment Wave 2
Check out the images below and a big thanks to Justin at Hunter PR for being a great liaison to Hasbro and getting this stuff accessible.
Some points of confusion I’ve seen… yes the “Cobra Combat Ninja” was meant to be a movie accurate Cobra Trooper. They only called him that because there is already a “Cobra Trooper” in the line. I can’t think of a single reason to complain. He’ll still be a Retaliation Cobra Trooper in my eyes. Also, yes, there was apparently a Roadblock and Flint put out on display that were not supposed to be there. They were quickly removed, but images have cropped up already. I am looking into seeing if it’s okay if I post those. If so, they will go up as well.
Just wanted to post a quick burst of images of these new 2013 offerings in the display case and also correct myself. The 2013 Night Landing does NOT come with the Sigma Suit canceled figure. :(
It uses some recycled parts from the Sunbow Snake Eyes, but the slideshow played tricks on me. The set does come with the accessories from that figure, however, which is almost as cool.
Also, the Red Ninja you see pictured below was not in the Slideshow, but somehow ended up in the case. I asked John Warden about it, and he thinks release should be around the same time as Firefly in Wave 3. Enjoy the images, more comprehensive coverage still to come.
I’m between seminars at the moment, but wanted to at least get the slideshow images posted from the 2013 Product demonstration. Many of these items will be in the display and I will get those images posted throughout the day as well, but wanted to get this AWESOME stuff up first. Highlights:
Micro Force Quarter-Sized collectible figures in blind bags. Over 80 figures to collect and trade. Foot holes are compatible with normal vehicle foot pegs for display!
Alpha sized Night Landing vehicle with Cobra Eel. Cobra Eel figure is the canceled Rise of Cobra Ripcord which is extremely detailed, highly accessorized and uses the figure design that was sculpted to resemble the Sigma 6 Sigma Suits
Night Viper is moved up to Wave 3
Very movie accurate “Ultimate Firefly” with mini-HISS in Wave 3
Very movie accurate “Cobra Trooper” (Cobra Combat Ninja) in Wave 3
Movie accurate “Ultimate Duke” (with Data-Viper Predator Drone) in Wave 3
Comic accurate/toy accurate Snake Eyes ’85 w/ Timber totally newly tooled in Wave 4
Crimson Guard in Wave 5 with customizable label sheet
