NJCC 2013 Exclusive Giveaway figure revealed – SALVO!

Down the road a little bit in New Jersey, they have been building a really great collectors convention, and the 2013 NJCC is preparing to hit us at the end of the month!  One of the coolest things about NJCC has been the evolution of their exclusive custom figures.  HISS Tanks kicked off the exclusive give away program, but that has evolved to some really great exclusive figures, using customized parts cast only for the show!

The last exclusive was an amazing 30th Anniversary update of Metalhead, and now Kevin Watts, the brainiac behind the design and implementation of these exclusive figures, dips back into 1990 and pulls out Salvo!  Salvo has been a long time favorite character of mine, and this update is pretty inspired.  A great new helmet, and an excellent modded rocket launcher highlight this great looking figure, which even has a customized armored vest.
