G.I. Joe Collectors Club first out of the gate with 50th Anniversary Press Pictures

Over on their Facebook page, the G.I. Joe Collectors Club has started posting press images of the upcoming G.I. Joe 50th Anniversary product!

Check out the gallery right here and make sure you “Like” their Facebook page while you’re at it.

The Press Images will be widely available tonight, so I’m not going to mirror those images, you can find them at this link.

Suffice it to say, we are getting concept case Destro and Leatherneck, Lady Jaye, and HEAT Viper, but at the same time we’re getting re-releases of a standard color Blowtorch (for the third time, really?!), PoC General Hawk and Low Light.

I will say the Cobra Wolf with Ice Viper is an exceptionally great surprise.  WOW!

Anyway, check out the images right here.

  1. Awesome!! I’ll take reissues of POC Hawk and Lowlight over nothing any day. Both were pretty great figures. It’s definitely baffling that they chose Blowtorch over, say, a reissue of Jungle Assault Duke or nearly any other POC/30th/Retaliation figure, but whatever.

  2. I love that we’re getting the concept figures, but part of me is really bummed that they are in multi-packs like several years ago. That means getting a figure you don’t really want or already have, in this case. Glass half full/empty I suppose.

  3. I’m just happy to see anything for this year considering the general retail stance on Joes. I really wish they wouldn’t put a named character in the same pack with troop builders.

  4. That image set may only be preliminary place holders. The final products may be different, such as Blowtorch coloring could be different on production (the long insisted green edition?).

  5. I’m STOKED to get that Heat Viper. And some of the repeats are going to be great custom fodder, so I’m good on those. But basically, Concept Case Destro, Lady Jaye and Leatherneck, plus that Snow Sabre…great news for this old collector!

  6. Please, God, tell me they’re actually, FINALLY going to release the PoC arctic Snake Eyes with the original metallic blue-painted armour and white visor…

  7. Never know…. it might end up be the Snow Sabre, ya know, might have lost naming rights to “wolf.” :p

  8. As far as Blowtorch versus H.E.A.T. Viper….., my bet is the guy with the High Explosive Anti-Tank weapon is going to beat the guy with the blowtorch. Every time, every battle.
