GeneralsJoes Reviews G.I. Joe Convention “Peril in Paradise” Convention Set

It’s taken a long time, but finally, the reviews are complete for the 2015 G.I. Joe Convention set “Peril in Paradise”.  Featuring Tiger Force versus the Iron Grenadiers, this combined review features a look at over 20 different items with in depth break downs of each.

The format is a bit different this time around, falling more in line with some of my recent Masters of the Universe Classics and Transformers reviews, so hopefully you like the new layout.  Same number of images, same star rating system, same in depth look, just with some new wallpaper.

  1. As a kid, I remember seeing Tiger Force described somewhere as a ‘fast attack jungle unit’ so the crazy colors and repainted enemy equipment always made sense to me as a “shock & awe” kind of thing. So I really like Tiger Force as a concept but the Club’s efforts just don’t do anything for me. There’s just no creative effort in redoing the past and their stuff lately has come out looking more like retail exclusives instead of the $30+ a figure premiums that they cost.

    Those squiggly knee-pads on Dial-Tone are bad but General Mayhem getting a straight up Batman logo is some hilariously poor quality control.

  2. Excellent reviews as always, Justin! I took my time over 3 days or so to slowly read through them. Great pics/insight!

  3. Good stuff!

    The Tigerhawk should have had a gray colored rotor system all around, just like the rear stabilizer. Tigerforce “red” seems to me to be located on the small accessories, and mostly on the guns, rockets, and missiles on the classic vehicles. But, otherwise, it really does look like it came out of 1988. (unlike the Tiger Ray :O)

    The sticker designer/ placement person in charge, if reading this (I agree with the GeneralsJoes “smiley” description), the classic line has a good number of “teeth” on vehicles that have break lines to give better placement. With the “blacked out” lower canopy windows, why wouldn’t this sticker have simply covered this area?

  4. I feel the same in regards to the continuous homage path. Especially when the seemingly “mass consensus” about the “neon” ’90’s colors were that they were bad, but then, faithfully recreated and praised by the masses in modern form now?

  5. I’m tired of soooo many homages/re-creations/tributes. I love when they update new sculpt figures in the modern format but they aren’t going overboard with them like they are for the RAH line. And Tiger Force was ugly then and still is.
