G.I. Joe: Convention Mission Brazil Python Patrol Stinger Guest Review

There aren’t many Conventions that I’ve missed over the past twelve years, but it just so happens that 2011 was one of them.  It was also the year the Collectors Club officially jumped with both feet in the pool into “Modern Era” figure style.  I think this change has served them very well.  Not only do they have a lot more parts to choose from for their figures, but there seems to be a lot more collector demand and much better sell through.

That was certainly true of the Mission Brazil set.  While I was recently able to get my hands on the Python Patrol Stinger (with great help from Jay of CardedHeroes.com), fellow What’s on Joe Mind host Mike wrote this review for me a while ago, and I’m eternally grateful.  A lot of folks don’t realize the amount of time and work that goes into review writing…  it’s not a short “bang it out” type of thing, and for Mike to take his valuable time to do this for me was very awesome of him.

It almost lets me overlook his repeated gut-punches regarding last year’s Super Bowl.  Almost.

All that side, he took some great pictures and did one hell of a write up.  You can check out the Python Patrol Stinger review now linked to my original Mission: Brazil Review (hosted on the G.I. Joe Collectors Club Review section) or just hit up the direct link below.  The Stinger review is with the “Extra’s” on Page 3.
