JoeCon 2015 Iron Grenadiers Metal Head And Annihilator Photo Shoots

DESTRO from HissTank.com  has posted a couple of fantastic photo shoots of JoeCon 2015 Exclusive Figures!

Included in the shoots are Annihilator, an Iron Grenadiers themed redeco of the 2012 version. Annihilator came as part of the Iron Grenadiers Air Assault 2 pack.

Next was the highly anticipated Iron Grenadier, Metal-Head! This Anti-Armor Specialist has been high on the want list for many G.I.Joe fans, so it’s great to see him finally make an appearance!

We’ve mirrored a couple of images here, but you definitely need to head over to the ‘Tank to check out the full galleries. Continue reading to grab the links and to join us for JoeCon 2015 discussion in progress!

JoeCon 2015 Custom Class Robo Joe Revealed

More tidbits are coming in from JoeCon 2015, this time around from the JoeCon Custom Class! Thanks to Mr. Steven Tucker from JoeCustoms, we now have our first image of this year’s custom class figure, Robo Joe! Well, in this instance, we see the bits to assemble Robo Joe, but I’m sure we’ll see him assembled and in full glory soon enough! Robo Joe was a member of Star Brigade from the A Real American Hero days, so it’s great to see a character from that subgroup finally get some modern era love!

EDIT: We’ve got a look at a carded version of RoboJoe from Alyosha‘s customizing class at JoeCon, and and Patrick Stewart was kind enough to share his completed RoboJoe!

JoeCon 2015 Tiger Force vs Iron Grenadiers Comic Details

Thanks once again to HissTank.com member chickenbroth, we now have details on this years JoeCon Exclusive Comic Book!

Per CB, what’s shown in the comic is as follows:

Characters

  • Frostbite

  • Bazooka (who mentions Alpine)

Vehicles

  • G.I.Joe VAMP v1 Tiger Force Colors
  • Cobra Water Moccasin in Tiger Force Colors

Whether or not these are “for sure” exclusives will be known soon enough, but chances are that these are more JoeCon 2015 exclusives and by that line up, I’m sure many will be pleased.

JoeCon 2015 Possible Hint At Exclusives

Today via his [url=https://www.facebook.com/robertatkinsart?fref=ts]Facebook Page[/url], Mr. Robert Atkins posted word that he’ll be in Springfield for JoeCon 2015 this weekend. This, of course, is already known (and many are excited to see him!)

What really caught my eye was a piece of artwork he shared. This piece references the Tiger Force vs. Iron Grenadiers theme of this years convention. Of note are some of the items found within the artwork:

  • Tiger Shark – In the first panel, you can see the silhouette of a Water Moccasin skimming away while the Tiger Force team deploys from the Eagle Hawk, possibly giving us our first heads up on a Tigershark exclusive.
  • Tigerhawk – The Eagle Hawk that the Club eluded to earlier. Not sure on who the pilot is; maybe Skystriker? Looks more like another Steel Brigade Delta figure, but let’s leave it as speculation for now.

Two things are for sure – The artwork is fantastic and we’ll know what the exclusives are soon enough! Keep it locked on Cobra Island for live coverage from JoeCon 2015!
