JoeCon 2015 Exclusive Iron Grenadiers General Mayhem Photo Shoot

The amazing galleries of the JoeCon 2015 Tiger Force vs. Iron Grenadiers Exclusives continue to roll in from DESTRO and HissTank.com! This time around, he’s focused his camera on the Iron Grenadiers Infantry Commander, General Mayhem! Sadly, General Mayhem holds no relation to a character of the same name from the M.A.S.K. series.

General Mayhem was first introduced to the Iron Grenadiers line up via the JoeCon Exclusive M.A.R.S. Invades Box Set. Now, he finally has a Modern Era rendition of his ARAH counterpart! Here’s his backstory –

General Mayhem the effective but cruel leader found a welcome home with Destro’s Iron Grenadiers. His apparent viciousness is barely tempered by his sheer military brilliance, often formulating bewildering attack plans thast appear totally chaotic and disorienting to his opponents, but ultimately come together in an indomitable orchestration of air, sea and land superiority – truly the work of a mad genius.

“Anyone foolish enough to get in my way will be crushed beneath my boot heels!”

As with previous galleries, we’ve mirrored a few images to whet your appetite. You can get your fill by check out the full [url=http://news.hisstank.com/2015/04/10/joecon-2015-general-mayhem-iron-grenadiers-photo-shoot-53030]JoeCon 2015 Iron Grenadiers General Mayhem Photo Shoot[/url].

JoeCon 2015 G.I. Joe Tiger Force Felino and Tiger Shark Photo Shoot

DESTRO from HissTank.com has shared yet another gallery, this time of one of the JoeCon 2015 Exclusive vehicle & driver sets. This time around, we get to feast our eyes on Felino and the Tiger Force Tiger Shark!

For those of you that may be unfamiliar with Felino, he’s the Brazilian release of Dusty. Here’s his back story:
Felino became part of the Tiger Force special operations unit in Brazil. He quickly learned the skills required to pilot the Tiger Shark patrol boat. His new responsibility allowed him to keep an eye on the coastal waters and continue to disrupt piracy operations. He is occasionally sent on assignment with the American team, so he can continue to learn new ways to defeat the enemy of his people.

“If you only get one shot, use a rocket launcher.”

We’ve again shared a few images here, but do yourself a favore, check out the full [url=http://news.hisstank.com/2015/04/10/joecon-2015-g-i-joe-tiger-force-felino-photo-shoot-53004#images]Tiger Force Felino and Tiger Shark Gallery on HissTank[/url] then come back to let us know what you think!

JoeCon 2015 Exclusive Tiger Force Wreckage Phoot Shoot

[B]DESTRO [/B]from[B] HissTank.com[/B] has posted a new gallery of [B]Tiger Force Wreckage[/B], one of the figures from the [B]JoeCon 2015 Tiger Force vs. Iron Grenadiers Box Set[/B]!

Assigned to the Tiger Force special operations unit, Wreckage quickly adapts to whatever environment he is dropped into.

“All I leave behind is enemy devastation.”
