Coil Con 7 Exclusive Figure #2 Revealed – SuperCop!

Coil Con 7 is happening next month, and the crew behind is has offered up another one of their exclusive figures for GeneralsJoes to reveal!

Long time G.I. Joe Collectors should be very familiar with this character, a Funskool exclusive from several years back using Sgt. Slaughter parts, the infamous SuperCop became a cult sensation among G.I. Joe collectors.  Thanks to some ambitious online retailers at the time, many domestic collectors got an opportunity to add SuperCop to their collections.

For those of you who haven’t, though, here’s your chance to get an awesome looking modern version, plus it dovetails nicely with the Coil storyline the Coil Con folks have developed.

Check out the first preview of the figure below and keep watching Coil Con on Facebook for more updates.

Coil Con 6 comes August 16th…with a Super exclusive!

Somehow this summer, the coming of this year’s Coil Con snuck up on me.  Hitting the mean streets of Dayton, Ohio on August 16th, the Midwest Coil Club always puts on a heck of a show.

This year they’ll be producing an exciting exclusive two pack for the event, featuring a very SUPER member of the G.I. Joe team.  They just revealed him on their Facebook event page, and he’s pretty great.

Even if the exclusive figures aren’t your thing, there will be some great events this year from James Kavanaugh, Jr, the What’s on Joe Mind podcast, and an impressive array of dealers.  Check out the full details below.

COIL Con 6 will be taking place on August 16 at the Holiday Inn Dayton/Fairfield , 2800 Presidential Drive, Dayton, OH 45324. We do have a block of rooms set aside for a special convention rate — if it fills, we can get more so long as there is availability.

Coil Con V unloads a “Weaponsmith” this weekend in Indiana!

This weekend, the Midwest will be under assault by agents from the Cobra Coil, and now they look to be joined by the infamous Red Shadow arms dealer “Weaponsmith”! The world thought Weaponsmith was dead, but it looks like the world was wrong!

An obscure character seen in the pages of G.I. Joe: European Missions #9, Weaponsmith joins Shrike as part of an exclusive 2-Pack for Coil Con attendees only. Designed and constructed by Coil mastermind Jon Cremeans, this great addition to the Red Shadows army comes with a weaponized jetpack. The two pack of figures with the jetpack will be $60.

Coil Con V hits the Wyndham Indianapolis Hotel on September 13th! With tons of fans, some great dealers, and guests (including Erik from Boss Fight Studio) it promises to be a great event for the entire family.

Check out all the details on CoilCon.com!

Coil Con V is right around the corner – September 13th, 2014!

COIL Con V is just six weeks away! To help prepare for the big day, we’ve enlisted the help of Justin and General’s Joes to help make the big reveals of our COIL Con Exclusives!

This year’s set will continue in the popular “COIL Strikes” theme, where we pit one COIL agent against an agent from one of its many rival factions. Last year’s set saw the COIL’s Naja Bhoot racing through the streets of Mumbai against special law enforcement agent Street Hawk, and 2012 had Zilant fighting against G.I Joe’s Dodger in the skies over Eastern Europe. This year, the COIL Strikes the United Kingdom… meet their newest agent, Shrike!

Shrike_Master_Coil_Con_V_Watermark

Shrike is the creation of veteran COIL designers Jay Hunger and Brian Kauffman and the first figure in the two-figure set which will be available only at COIL Con! Jay was also responsible for Sidewinder, the 2011 exclusive figure, and the 2012 figures. There will be 40 two-figure sets available at COIL Con V, and Justin has agreed to help us with the reveal of figure #2 as we get closer to the day of the show.

As mentioned earlier, COIL Con V will take place from 9 am to 5 pm on Saturday, September 13. This year’s convention has moved indoors to the Indianapolis Wyndham hotel. For anyone thinking of making the trip in from out of town, it’s mere minutes from the Indianapolis airport and there are rooms available with a special Convention rate ($99/night) for Friday and Saturday night.

Be sure to check out the club’s site, www.coilcon.com, and the COIL Con Facebook page in the comng weeks for more information!

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.

Behind the scenes peek at the wonders of Coil Con!

Coil Con III was a huge event this summer at Kokomo Toys, a great sponsor of GeneralsJoes, but there was much more to it than just G.I. Joe toys and guests!  There’s a sense of brotherhood, camaraderie, and just all out fun.  The same atmosphere that you get at a JoeCon.

This year, though, they did something a little different as well.  This year they brought in a documentary producer who actually filmed and interviewed the folks involved with Coil Con, and they’ve presented a short documentary of the event on YouTube.  It’s a very cool look at Coil Con III and the people involved with it.  Special guest stars Mike and Gary from the What’s on Joe Mind Podcast!

Check it out embedded below!  Big thanks to the Coil Club guys and to Todd and Amber from Kokomo Toys for hosting the event and thinking of this documentary idea.
