While at the 2017 Dirty South G.I. Joe Meet, we were fortunate enough to pick up one of the amazing Diorama backdrops offered by Chris at JoeRepro.com. He had such a wide selection available that it made hard for us to pick only one. In the end, we opted for the Cobra Stage Backdrop.
This amazing piece is professionally printed on high quality gloss stock in vibrant colors. We mounted our piece on foam core, but you could easily stand this backdrop up without it. We’ve shared a gallery of 25 images showing the versatility of the dio backdrop, as it looks as much at home with vintage figures as it does with your modern era Cobra Army.
You can get this backdrop and many others like it by visiting JoeRepro.com! Read on to check out our gallery, then join us after the break to share your thoughts with us on the Cobra Island Forums!

Although we’ve seen speeders in Sand, Jungle & Stealth themes, this is our first time receiving a speeder in vibrant colors, namely blue and orange. Both the Pilot and Speeder share similar markings and a pair of bunny ears, hopefully making this particular pilot lucky on the battlefield.

I picked up Combiner Wars Swindle last night, and I took a few pictures.
When I first saw Swindle on the shelf I had a mixed opinion of the figure. The one I really wanted was Brawl, to tell you the truth, but this was the only one they had on shelves. I wasn’t a fan of the Rook mold to be honest, but G1 Swindle is one of the figures I had as a kid. Also the figure was a lot bulkier than I thought Swindle should be. The original figure had scrawny arms.
This guy’s been clearly hitting the gym lately. He’s a regular beefcake!
All in all I’m glad I picked up the figure. The proper hands are a VAST improvement over Rook! The hole in front of the fist was . . . interesting, but I prefer my figures to be able to hold their weapons the right way.
Speaking of weapons, Swindle comes with the same hand/foot/gun that rook came with. There’s a hole in the palm section that allows you to mount it on top of his vehicle mode, but it also allows you to combine it with his main gun!
All in all Swindle is a pretty awesome figure. Maybe a little beefier than I expected, but a great addition to my Decepticon ranks!
I’d recommend him, even if you’re not planning on picking up the rest of the Combaticons. Hell, I’m not. Well probably Brawl, but not the other three.

I picked up four sets. Normally on their website, you would pick a body, and customize as you see fit with heads, weapons, gear, etc. Today at the show, they had prepackaged sets of the different colors (Black, Blue, Red, White, Dark Green, Camo and Tan).
I picked up one each of the Dark Green, Red, White, and Tan, of which I’ll be giving you my honest opinions of below.
