Coil Con 2012 cranks it up a notch with ZILANT!

Wow…  it’s amazing what a little creativity can do with some easily accessible parts, and the guys over at the Coil Con (most notably, Jay Hunger from Carded Heroes) have knocked it out of the park with the first reveal of their Convention exclusive figures this year.

Zilant leads the Coil team, and he is rocking a great green and red paint scheme, using some awesome parts from various G.I. Joe: Renegades figures.  I think most people would agree that the infamous Black Ice figure is what really put the Canadian JoeCon on the map a number of years ago…I suspect Zilant may have the same affect for Coil Con.  A truly inspired, evil looking figure.  Kudos to Jay and the Coil guys for getting this together, and make sure you keep your browsers on CoilCon.com or the Coil Con Facebook Page for the latest info on the Coil get together.

It’s coming up soon, on September 8th, and will feature appearances by IDW artist Robert Atkins, author James Kavanaugh, and the JoeDeclassified guys as well.  Don’t miss it, it sounds like a great time.  Wish I could be there!

  1. The parts use is fine, but the color breakdown doesn’t work for me. The first thing I thought of was Cross Country in a Halloween mask. Since he’s about as non-threatening as you can get, it took all the intended menace right out of the figure.

  2. I love me some Renegades Ripcord legs and Renegades Firefly arms. I also love the Snake Eyes torso, but we’ve seen it a bunch and it doesn’t really match the arms. Could use some web gear, too.

    All-in-all, though, it’s one of the coolest exclusives I’ve seen.

  3. C’mon Justin…get in a car, drive west. Putting it in the class of Black Ice, eh? Considering what I saw one going for this weekend at CJC, that is high praise, Jay Hunger.

  4. I’m sorry but Zilant looks like a bad custom to me. I can see why Hasbro always hides that torso with web gear. It’s too small for the arms and legs.

  5. Scary looking guy. Looks like someone you’d have to worry about slitting your throat in while you sleep.

  6. It’s also just the torso that the Renegades Firefly has under his coat. The whole thing from hips to neck is Firefly.
