“Paramount and Hasbro have partnered on many successful films in the past, including the ‘TRANSFORMERS’ and ‘G.I.

Project Downfall

Project Downfall JoeCon 2016

The brochure for JoeCon 2016 is online, and this year’s set is Project Downfall!

COBRA has installed an advanced radar station on one of the
“fourteener’s”, mountains that rise more than 14,000 feet above
sea level in the Colorado Rocky Mountains. When G.I. JOE tests
their new stealth aircraft at one of the local Air Force bases, they
find themselves on a search and rescue mission for the ultimate
prize.
The COBRA A.D.D.E.R.S. (Aerial Deployment Daredevil Elite
Recon Squadron) are a covert reconnaissance and warfare unit of
the COBRA Air Force. These tactical assault glider pilots swoop
down on their prey and steal everything they can carry back to
their base. They are airborne criminals determined to rule the
skies by any means necessary!
The G.I. JOE SKY PATROL are an elite aerial assault team.
They use advanced stealth technology to provide offensive and
defensive counter air operations. These airborne troopers conduct
rapid, infiltration, ex-filtration or reconnaissance missions using
specialized deployment systems and tactics. Their goal is to clear
the skies by disrupting or neutralizing all enemy forces in their
path.
Both the COBRA and G.I. JOE squadron leaders know that
command of the sky is crucial in determining the outcome of any
battle. Which team will be victorious and gain air superiority?
The 2016 3 3/4” convention set contains highly requested teams and some new additions available for the first time in the modern era 25A action figure style. This special edition set includes:
SKY PATROL (six figures): DROP ZONE, SKYDIVECLIFF “AIRWAVE” MEWETT, STATIC LINE, ROBERT “AIRBORNE” SIXJOHN-EDWARD “ALTITUDE” JONES.

Each of these great teams comes with their classic weapons,
accessories, figure stands and file cards in this exciting fifteen
figure boxed set.

night so that you won’t miss this year’s souvenirs! These
convention exclusive souvenirs will feature uniquely themed
action figures and vehicles to battle for air supremacy! Plus,

Tele-Viper

Female Tele-Viper by ska_lives

Our very own ska_lives posted his custom female Tele-Viper figure!  Here’s what he had to say about the figure!

I got a few kits from angelforge a while back and finally got around to finishing up one of them. I have 0 modern televipers, and thus I decided to make one. The female TV kit is very nice and I recommend it. My only complaint is that the upper torso is very wide when viewed from the side and makes her look funny when using feminine arms. Instead I mixed male and female arms to make something that looked more sensible. I’d have to say that my favorite part of making this figure was the nifty translucent look I got on the visor. The only other thing I can say is that she is sorely under-equipped and that I hope to find some more accessories for her on the future.
I hope you dig it!

Be sure to check out ska_lives’ female Tele-Viper in the Dreadnok Chop Shop, and let him know what you think of this awesome figure!
