GIJoeCon 2018 Guest Announcement – Mr. Larry Selman

The G.I.Joe Collectors Convention Website has been updated with details on a new guest appearing at GIJoeCon 2018, Mr. Larry Selman

LARRY SELMAN was born in Pennsylvania and raised in a military family. Following graduation from York Academy of Art in 1982, he built a successful career in the illustration field, by collaborating with the top art directors and major publishers in New York and around the United States. Establishing a reputation of excellence, several of his illustrations have received prestigious awards and his illustration work has also appeared on the majority of the G.I. Joe Classic Collection packaging.

Larry was involved with the building of the World War II Memorial in Washington DC. He was asked by lead sculptor Ray Kaskey to provide authentic equipment and historical expertise for the sculpting of the 28 bronze plaques that would line the entrance steps to the Memorial.

Now concentrating solely on historical fine art, his original works can be found at the US Army War College, Carlisle, Pennsylvania, the Command and General Staff College, Ft. Leavenworth, Kansas and on numerous other military bases and museums throughout the United States. Larry is the only artist to depict every era of American military history and every branch of service. He has worked with Medal of Honor recipients: Francis Currey and Mitchell Paige, Ranger legend Leonard Lomell, and the famed Band of Brothers, from generals, and highly decorated soldiers and new recruits.

You can see more of his illustrations and projects at: LarrySelman.com

GIJoeCon 2018 Python Peril: Marauders To The Rescue Box Art Revealed

The G.I.Joe Collectors Club has shared a fantastic reveal this evening! This time around, we’re treated to the G.I.Joe Collectors Convention 3 & 3/4″ Box! The box art depicts the team members from Slaughters Marauders. From the Club – 

The COBRA PYTHON PATROL is an elite unit of troopers that have been handpicked for their various tactical specialties. They are expertly trained and equipped for stealth and infiltration missions. They wear unique camouflage grid uniforms to mask their presence, which confuses radar detection systems and allows them to accomplish sinister operations around the globe. Using the latest radar absorbing materials and stealth technology, PYTHON PATROL 2.0 rears its ugly head with a surgical strike against their sworn enemy. Led by the nefarious MAJOR BLUDD, they have successfully captured a “Real American Hero” and key member of the G.I. JOE team.

The SLAUGHTER’S MARAUDERS unit is called into action to mount a dire rescue mission of their original commander. A fellow Marine Drill Instructor, SGT. SMASHER takes the squad leader position and selects highly specialized soldiers for a fast attack, ground assault into enemy territory to combat these devious COBRA forces. PYTHON PATROL 2.0 is a dangerous unit, but it will take more than their special uniforms and slithering nastiness to get the best of the entire SLAUGHTER’S MARAUDERS team!

(Note: final product may slightly differ from sample shown.) Collect all the great 3 3/4″ action figures in the 15-figure Python Peril: Marauders to the Rescue! box set.

Are you excited to add this 15 figure set to your collection? Sound off after the break on the Cobra Island Forums! Many thanks to our friends from Tooele Toys for the heads up!
