Geewunner July Tiger Themed Vehicles Revealed!

Geewunner teased us a short time ago with shadow images of his tiger themed military vehicle sets!  Well tonight we’ve got a look at those sets!

With the force of a tiger, our Heroes strike at the Enemy!

As a kid, I was always a fan of G.I. Joe recolor subgroups like Tiger or Night Force.  Some may decry a greedy toy company trying to sell us the same toy again, but as a kid who missed out on a lot of early toys, it was a great “second chance” at some of these classic toys.  And the fiction aspect of creating a special subgroup for specific missions, not to mention re-utilizing captured enemy vehicles against them, fascinated me.

Early on in the Geewunner Customs project, I started experimenting with Tiger Force and Night Force versions of some of my models, but wondered if the Kreo Joe product line would be healthy enough to get to the point where they’d offer Kreons based on these subgroups.  Once the set for this year’s JoeCon was announced, I knew it was time to ready some of these sets for mass consumption.  In an attempt to garner some synergy with Con stuff, I focused only on vehicles released at the show.  And at a late point in the game, I decided to work up an Iron Grenadiers Mantis sub as well.

We teased this stuff out about a week or so ago, but today we reveal the full CG images, and offer these sets for pre-order at the store.  Full photography will come later this month or early July, but the images here go a long way to capturing the dynamic looks of these sets.  It was difficult to pull off the white-to-brown-yellow bleed toward the front of each vehicle, as well as the tiger stripes, but I think I did as good a job as one can with bricks.  You be the judge.

Five sets are offered, although one is admittedly a re-release (Cat Unit Quad, although in an updated version with brown in the bleed, which did not exist on the previous version), and one is a special “Cat Unit Attack Pack” set of the General Purpose Vehicle with an additional, original Cat Unit version of the Towed Missile Launcher, much like the previously offered “Desert Attack Pack“.  The GPV in this set will also come with extra hoses to connect the rear missile launcher with the body, much like the Con version of the toy.  FYI, the Mini Sub involves some VERY expensive, hard-to-get parts, so we’re planning a run of ten copies that will likely be all we do, unless for some reason they blow out and there’s some vocal demand.  Don’t let your Undertow Commander go without a ride!

For those considering getting the whole wave, consider this special offer: folks who pick up the Cat Unit Attack Pack, the Cat Unit Fan Boat, and the Weapon Dealer Mini Sub will get a FREE Cat Unit Quad!  So be sure to take advantage.  Click on each of the above images to go directly to that set’s entry, or just head on over to the store to browse.  These sets will ship between July 15th and 30th.  Thanks for your interest!

As always, you can discuss these newest additions to the motor pool in the Geewunner Tiger Vehicles discussion!
