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!

BarkingFridge Presents Viper By Miriam Iams

Skinny from BarkingFridge shared word on a new Mupnok style video posted to the BarkingFridge YouTube Channel! From Skinny – 

Another crazy Mupnok parody, this time a blast from the past. In 2014 Miriam Iams who also voiced Zarana in “Dreadnok Life” also sang this take on the Cranberries “Zombie” It only felt right to dedicate this to the late lead singer of the Cranberries, Delores O’riordan.

Skinny has also shared the lyrics to the song which we’ve shared on the board, so make sure to join us after the break on the Cobra Island Forums to discuss this latest Mupnok video from BarkingFridge!
