Another day, another 2014 Convention reveal! While today’s image isn’t of the Real American Hero set, it could have potential implications for us fans of the small figures.
Today, the G.I. Joe Collectors Club revealed an awesome looking tiger stripe camouflage uniform for their 12″ “Codename: G.I. Joe” Convention set, celebrating the 50th Anniversary of G.I. Joe. It’s got some terrific, intricate camouflage, and looking at other reveals, we have the familiar green beret as well.
So what does that mean for RAH fans? Well, perhaps nothing, but considering a 4″ Joe Colton is going to be available as an exclusive, could this perhaps be an indication of what that figure might look like? Just like Hasbro did in 1994, could the Collectors’ Club be celebrating the anniversary with 4″ and 12″ representations of this great green beret figure?
It’s certainly possible. In ’94 there was a mail away for both a 12″ and a 3 3/4″ Joe Colton, it seems quite fitting that precisely 20 years later they might replicate that for the 50th celebration.
Check out GIJoeCon.com for the latest images, I’ve mirrored one of them below.
Welcome to the world of GeneralsJoes G.I. Joe universe! Contained in this page you’ll find the doorway to my imagination and how I view the G.I. Joe universe since the end of the Marvel series in 1994. Keep in mind when I started this project, we were only three years removed from that event, and while a lot has changed since then, this remains one of my fandom contributions that I am most proud of. Relive the adventures of Hit & Run, Vypra, the Interrogator, Duke, and everyone in between. Check out the links below to see every chapter of my G.I. Joe universe from 1994 forward.
Please note: The Dio-Story will make a lot more sense if you read my Fanfics before hand, but I understand that fanfic is not for everyone. I tried to walk that line between referencing back to The Price of Peace and the Cost of War and doing some new adventures that don’t require specific knowledge of those past events. In some cases you may see references to events contained within those two books.
