G.I. Joe Convention Attendee Exclusive – Iron Grenadier Mantis Sub

Along with the Convention Comic, Golden Ticket holders also picked up their attendee exclusive vehicle tonight, and it’s the Mantis Sub from Valor Vs. Venom in Iron Grenadier deco.  A pretty nice looking little vehicle.

G.I. Joe Convention Comic reveals exclusive details

Big thanks to Patrick Stewart who very kindly fed me some info as I’ve been traversing the east en route to Springfield for JoeCon 2015.

As has become customary, the Collectors Club revealed the list of exclusives for JoeCon 2015 in their comic at the Golden Ticket pick up tonight, and there are some exciting new reveals to think about!

  • Iron Grenadiers Air Assault Two pack LE 900
  • Tiger Force Helicopter Crew Three Pack LE 800
  • Tiger Hawk LE 600
  • Tiger Shark w/ Felino LE 800
  • Tiger Sting w/ Sgt Katzenbogen (that would be Tiger Force Bazooka!)LE 800
  • Iron Anvil Officer w/ Parachute LE 600
  • Kre-O Six Pack

Some mysteries obviously remain still…  one must assume the “Iron Grenadier” Air Assault Two Pack is a pack of repainted Annihilators, who appear in the Club comic.

The helicopter crew three pack should include Skystriker (seen in the Club comic with a Tripwire head and Wild Weasel body) and perhaps Alpine (also seen in the Club comic, who would be a great match for Bazooka), and maybe Frostbite (who appears in the comic as well)?  Also, do the Kre-O figures represent Iron Grenadiers or Tiger Force?  I’m betting it’ll be similar to the last couple years with a mix of the two.

Fans might have noticed Dusty in the comic, but it’s not Dusty, it’s Felino, who is a Brazilian exclusive that looks an awful lot like our familiar Desert Trooper.

It looks like a great line up, with some interesting twists and still some potential twists to come.  Check out some of the images below.

Clues to the Con Extras in the Club Comic?

As I sit down for dinner on the road trip to JoeCon, Robert Atkins has posted some preview art for the Club Comic (great news that he’s involved! ).

On those pages, you can see what appears to be a Tiger Shark (Water Moccasin repaint) and the distinctive two chest pouches of Skystriker in the Eaglehawk.

Could these be clues or just red herrings? We should find out soon!

Check out Robert Atkins on Facebook and the images are below.
