G.I. Joe Convention 2013 Brochure is now online!

We’ve been waiting patiently…and here we go!  The Convention Brochure for the 2013 G.I. Joe Convention is now online!  And with the announcement of the Brochure, we now know some of the characters in the G.I. Joe “Nocturnal Fire” Convention Set.

And…  oh wow.  Ohhhh boy.  This is…  yeah.  I’m smiling right now.  Check out the snippet from the brochure below:

Nocturnal Fire

G.I. JOE: Night Force is a covert unit specializing in nighttime
surveillance and defensive operations. Each team member has
been selected for their enhanced skills, sophisticated hardware
and advanced technology to surprise and vanquish any enemy!

This fan favorite and highly requested team contains several
of the classic Night Force members and some new additions
available for the first time in the modern era 25A style.

Our special edition Nocturnal Fire squad includes: Charbroil, Hit
& Run, Muskrat, Psyche-Out, Repeater and Spearhead with Max
(NEW Bobcat).

The Cobra Demolitions Team is ready to take on any obstacle
that gets in their path of destruction. Led by the mysterious Cobra
Mortal, he employs Cobra Letal and the deadly saboteur Crimson
Asp (NEW female character). Their specialized troopers include:
Cobra Frag-Vipers x 3, Cobra S.A.W.-Vipers x 3.”

Did everyone see that?  Did they see that?!?  HIT & RUN!!!  Woo hoo!!!!  By and large, I love what the Club does figure-design wise, and they’re doing my favorite G.I. Joe figure ever?  Sign me UP and let the speculation begin…  could this possibly be the Concept Case 30th Anniversary Hit & Run we were all drooling over last year?  Or was all of that drool mine?

Repeater??  Psyche Out!?  Muskrat and Charbroil?  Awwww, hell yeah…  these are all awesome characters, and yeah, while I’m sure many fans are hoping to get them in “normal” uniforms eventually, most of them look pretty boss in their Night Force togs as well.  Good stuff.  Not to mention a brand new Crimson ASP female character, Frag-Vipers AND SAW Vipers!?  Cobra Letal is the logical choice to lead the Frag-Viper team as well.  As for Cobra Mortal, interesting choice.  Let’s see how they pretty him up for the modern era.

Hit up GIJoeCon.com to keep up with the latest intel and the Convention Brochure with full details can be found right here.

I’m gonna be smiling for the next 2 months.  Bring on April!

  1. This sounds awesome. I wish I could make it there but I get back from Afghanistan that weekend. So close

  2. That pack has some SERIOUS potential. Hit n Run and Spearhead! Extremely cool. I think this is going to be my first convention set.

  3. Well, I am a little disappointed that the Club is beating me to the punch with NF Hit n Run. I have been planing to make an o-ring one for a few years.

    Like last year, I think I will just get the non attending 12 inch set. I might try to get some of the Cobras off ebay, unfortunately they might be to pricey.

  4. Hey guys I was wondering is it posable to get that set with out attending the convention?

  5. Its cool that we are getting new females and all but I do wish they would mine the GI JOE universe first before coming up with all new characters. There are tons of COBRA GI JOE and other females they could make first before making up all new ones. using an existing character means it brings in at least a small fan base with it.

  6. Given that these are Night Force versions, I wonder if we’ll see the same recipes used in the next FSS for ‘regular’ versions of Spearhead, Psyche-Out, etc?

  7. There is an option to get a non-attending set. Last year the registration for it started a little after the attending registration. This would be the best way to get a set.

    Your other options would be to get the set from the Club store after JoeCon, but if the set sells out before or at the show (like the last two), then there will not be any for the store. Then there is ebay.
