Big Botcon news for Joefans – new crossover set with Ninja Force Scarlett?!

Details are slim at the moment, but word out of Botcon is that the Transformers Collectors Club has announced a new Transformers/G.I. Joe Crossover set, including Cobra Commander in a black uniform, Dr. Biggles Jones, and NINJA FORCE EFFING SCARLETT.  Ratbat and a G2 deco Megatron are also in the set!

Big news!  Mirrored images from the slideshow can be seen below.

Big thanks to Pat Stewart for the quick images!

    OK, I am ALL OVER Ninja Force Scarlett… but why the hell do they have to stick her in a huge set, and why on Earth are they forcing another black Cobra Commander on us? I know it will be slightly different from the 15 peg warmers of the past, but come on. I have no opinion on the other three figures, not into Transformers. Really wish NFS was in FSS5. Sigh.

  • Rob Osborne

    Based on the comic, I see the reason for the set’s inclusion. But still, the DG CC? C’mon…at least use the equally peg-warmed 50th CC with updated accessories.

    Megatron as the weapon is a good addition, though.

    Dayyuum. Shiite just got real.

    Nice to see Fun Pub giving us a few more chances at figures and characters that we wouldn’t get at retail.

    Masterpiece Ratbat nice. Ninja Force Scarlett, admittedly I don’t like Ninja Force, but I appreciate the effort and appeal for other collectors. The real treat is Dr Sydney Biggles-Jones. Never did I think we’d see in anything but a custom of her since she got so little time in the mythos.

    I’m buying a set. May as well go out with a bang!

    The cool thing about this is the box is going to be a homage to #139 done by the same cover artist except Cobra Commander will be holding a tiny Megatron hologram in his hand in the same pose.

  • DustyAyers

    Agreed. I also really dislike this era of the comics. I hated the “starring Ninja Force and starring Snake Eyes” tag line they added. It just made it feel hokey.

  • It’s odd that Ratbat would be in this set.

  • krislee23

    I have to agree with you here. That tag line was terrible, especially since the joe logo was shrunk down to about a quarter of the size in order to accommodate the giant letters in Snake Eyes’s name. That era of the comic was also my least favorite during the original run.

  • So the set with two Soundwave BATs and a figure was 80, so this is gona be…what, 100? 150?

  • Bleak5170

    Ugh. The last thing I want to be reminded of is the worst era in the history of G.I. Joe comics, (I’m a comic guy – not a toy guy).

    Whatever the price, I’m sure it’s going to be a great value!

    For the Club. Not for people that buy it.
