Review of “Marauder Task Force” Figures

Today at the New Jersey Collectors Convention, Marauder Gun Runners had a booth set up showing off and selling their new “Marauder Task Force” line of 3 3/4″ Action Figures.

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.

Happy Memorial Day, Cobra Island! would like to wish you a very happy and healthy Memorial Day! Whether it’s at a barbecue, or on the couch with the kids…no matter what you do today, please remember to give thanks to the brave servicemen & women who have made it all possible. Today is a day to remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice to ensure that folks like you and I don’t have to.

“Winston Churchill said of those he knew in World War II they seemed to be the only young men who could laugh and fight at the same time. A great general in that war called them our secret weapon, “just the best darn kids in the world.” Each died for a cause he considered more important than his own life. Well, they didn’t volunteer to die; they volunteered to defend values for which men have always been willing to die if need be, the values which make up what we call civilization. And how they must have wished, in all the ugliness that war brings, that no other generation of young men to follow would have to undergo that same experience.

As we honor their memory today, let us pledge that their lives, their sacrifices, their valor shall be justified and remembered for as long as God gives life to this nation. And let us also pledge to do our utmost to carry out what must have been their wish: that no other generation of young men will every have to share their experiences and repeat their sacrifice.”

JoeCon 2015 Exclusive Iron Grenadiers General Mayhem Photo Shoot

The amazing galleries of the JoeCon 2015 Tiger Force vs. Iron Grenadiers Exclusives continue to roll in from DESTRO and! This time around, he’s focused his camera on the Iron Grenadiers Infantry Commander, General Mayhem! Sadly, General Mayhem holds no relation to a character of the same name from the M.A.S.K. series.

General Mayhem was first introduced to the Iron Grenadiers line up via the JoeCon Exclusive M.A.R.S. Invades Box Set. Now, he finally has a Modern Era rendition of his ARAH counterpart! Here’s his backstory –

General Mayhem the effective but cruel leader found a welcome home with Destro’s Iron Grenadiers. His apparent viciousness is barely tempered by his sheer military brilliance, often formulating bewildering attack plans thast appear totally chaotic and disorienting to his opponents, but ultimately come together in an indomitable orchestration of air, sea and land superiority – truly the work of a mad genius.

“Anyone foolish enough to get in my way will be crushed beneath my boot heels!”

As with previous galleries, we’ve mirrored a few images to whet your appetite. You can get your fill by check out the full [url=]JoeCon 2015 Iron Grenadiers General Mayhem Photo Shoot[/url]. Continue reading to get in on the discussion already in progress!

JoeCon 2015 G.I. Joe Tiger Force Felino and Tiger Shark Photo Shoot

DESTRO from has shared yet another gallery, this time of one of the JoeCon 2015 Exclusive vehicle & driver sets. This time around, we get to feast our eyes on Felino and the Tiger Force Tiger Shark!

For those of you that may be unfamiliar with Felino, he’s the Brazilian release of Dusty. Here’s his back story:
Felino became part of the Tiger Force special operations unit in Brazil. He quickly learned the skills required to pilot the Tiger Shark patrol boat. His new responsibility allowed him to keep an eye on the coastal waters and continue to disrupt piracy operations. He is occasionally sent on assignment with the American team, so he can continue to learn new ways to defeat the enemy of his people.

“If you only get one shot, use a rocket launcher.”

We’ve again shared a few images here, but do yourself a favore, check out the full [url=]Tiger Force Felino and Tiger Shark Gallery on HissTank[/url] then come back to let us know what you think!

JoeCon 2015 Exclusive Tiger Force Wreckage Phoot Shoot

[B]DESTRO [/B]from[B][/B] has posted a new gallery of [B]Tiger Force Wreckage[/B], one of the figures from the [B]JoeCon 2015 Tiger Force vs. Iron Grenadiers Box Set[/B]!

Assigned to the Tiger Force special operations unit, Wreckage quickly adapts to whatever environment he is dropped into. He uses a wide variety of explosives to eliminate impediments to the team and is skilled in charged, fuse, remote, launched or times munitions. It is his mastery and use of the Special Operations Forces Demolition Kit (SOFKD) that allows him to tailor demolition charges for maximum effect with minimal carry weight.

“All I leave behind is enemy devastation.”
