2018 GIJoeCon Information Brochure Is Now Available

It’s here! The 2018 GIJoeCon Information Brochure is online and available for your reading pleasure! You can download the direct PDF file here: 2018 GIJoeCon Information Brochure

Let’s cut to the chase though – You want know what the 2018 Convention set theme is? Well, hold on to your seats, as the theme is Python Patrol vs. Slaughters Marauders!

PYTHON PERIL: MARAUDERS TO THE RESCUE!

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 slitherine nastiness to get the best of the entire SLAUGHTER’S MARAUDERS team!

The set includes –

  • SLAUGHTER’S MARAUDERS: Sgt. Smasher, Footloose, Hardball, Mutt & Junkyard, Spirit & Freedom. 
  • PYTHON PATROL: Major Bludd, Python H.E.A.T. Viper x3, Python Lamprey x3, Python Laser Viper x3

There’s also the 12″ Exclusive set, the Green Beret Machine Gun Outpost Boxed Set! There’s so much to talk about, so join us after the break to get in on the GIJoeCon 2018 discussion here on the Cobra Island Forums!
