First Coil Con IV Exclusive Revealed – Street Hawk!

Coil Con IV explodes onto the scene August 24th, 2013 at Kokomo Toys in Kokomo, Indiana. As with the show last year, the regional G.I. Joe Collectors Club The Coil Club will be offering limited edition exclusives only available at the show.

Last year their two glider sets were extremely popular with convention attendees, and this year, they’re doing something that has some great G.I. Joe ties and that should thrill 80s fans in general.

Presenting the first Coil Con IV Exclusive… Street Hawk!

Yes, that’s right, Jesse Mach himself, along with his state of the art super-motorcycle. It would appear that his motorcycle is even more state of the art now, though, as it is represented by the Ashiko “Power Armor” bike. A very interesting choice, and the figure looks pretty fun as well. As for the ties to G.I. Joe, check the YoJoe International Archive to see how this connects back to a Real American Hero.

Coil Club reveals second 2012 Coil Con Exclusive – DODGER!

Easily my favorite BattleForce: 2000 character, Dodger has the dubious distinction of being the only member of that ill-fated team to escape the burning oil refinaries of Benzheen.  It always fascinated me to think how that kind of event changes someone in the military, to the point where I made him a key member of my G.I. Joe: Renegades team in my dio-story universe.

As cool a character as Dodger has the potential to be, though, Hasbro has neglected to give him any love in many years.  The guys behind the 2012 Coil Con are changing that, though.  Facing him off against Zilant, the Coil Club now announces Night Force Dodger.

Like Zilant, there is some very creative parts use here, with a modified Renegades Cobra Trooper head sculpt and some great Pursuit of Cobra parts mixed in.  Check out the mirrored image below, and keep watching CoilCon.com for the latest details on the Convention, hitting Kokomo Toys September 8th!
