It’s days like today where it’s fun to be a G.I. Joe fan! I love “brochure reveal day” from the G.I. Joe Collectors Club as it immediately opens the floodgates for questions, speculation, and interest in the upcoming G.I. Joe convention!
And today we have one heck of an update. If folks weren’t aware by the newsletter image, Wreckage’s reveal this week confirmed that Tiger Force was one side of the Convention set battle, and today we know the other… Iron Grenadiers!
The Tiger Force set features… are you ready for this?
- Sgt Stalker
- Big Brawler
The Iron Grenadier side includes… holy wow…
- General Mayhem
- Undertow Officer
- Iron Anvils x 3
- Undertow x 3
As someone who really loves the 2005 MARS Attacks set, this certainly sounds fascinating! The Iron Anvils are one of my all time favorite Convention figures, and Metalhead is a terrific addition to the Iron Grenadier cadre. Really interested to see how they handle Mayhem as well. Great looking stuff.
On the Tiger Force side, I think we kind of know what to expect with Lifeline and Recondo… and I’m betting we see some Toys “R” Us influenced Dial-Tone, Sgt. Stalker, and Big Brawler deco’s, too!
I’ll admit, I’m not a huge Tiger Force fan, but I like that they’re pulling from the newer Toys “R” Us 5-Pack as well as the classics. Gives us some really good ideas about potential vehicles and extra figures as well.
I would expect we’ll start seeing more figure reveals VERY soon… hold on tight!
