JoeFest Toy and Comic Show Exclusive Action Force SAS Beaver By ROMA Collectibles

Yesterday we brought you word of a pair of customs being offered by ROMA Collectibles exclusively at JoeFest Toy & Comic Show. The first figure revealed is Count DuSang, a french Intelligence officer whose allegiance is to the Red Shadows. Don’t worry, a retired member of the Action Force SAS is hot on his trail, Action Force SAS Beaver!

An older, wiser and more grizzled veteran, coming out of retirement for one last mission: To bring Count DuSang in for justice. Just like in the 80s, Beaver comes equipped with his trusty yellow life vest and Silent Attack Kayak, to steer the waterways and clean up the awful mess that is the Red Shadow plague.

This 2 figure set is extremely limited (only 6 available), so make sure to hit the ROMA table early as these will surely sell out FAST! Will you be at JoeFest Toy & Comic Show this coming weekend? Sound off after the break on the Cobra Island Forums

John Royle Shares Cobra Mantis Captain Commission Art

This is awesome – John Royle has shared a commission art piece that he created for none other than Skinny! From John –

A little G.I.JOE fun for the weekend, a private commission I penciled last year of the Cobra Mantis Captain who had a small part in Ghost of a Chance, season two of the classic Sunbow animation series. Zenescope colourist Sean Ellery asked to colour it for fun and got his friend Matt James to digitally ink it. I love how Sean handled the water! Lovely!

We always love seeing obscure characters given a second lease on life. What about you? Sound off after the break on the Cobra Island Forums!

Eagle Force Returns Digital Comics and Digital Handbook Now Arriving

Heads Up! For those of you that backed the Eagle Force Returns Kickstarter Campaign, start checking your e-mail! The Eagle Force Returns Handbook and Eagle Force Returns Comics (both in digital format) have begun distribution via BackerKit! 

Shattered Peace, the Eagle Force comic that debuted last year is something that you may already be familiar with, but the Eagle Force Handbook on the other hand is all new and all sorts of awesome! From the Handbook – 

The long retired Captain Eagle is recruited back into active duty by his former teammate General Brown. 

Together they enlist a new generation of Eagle Force team members to combat the re-emerging forces of R.I.O.T., a terrorist organization driven by a desire for total global domination. 

The handbook totals 17 pages and is chock full of character bios and backstories! This, combined with the Eagle Force Shattered Peace comic should have Eagle Force fans smiling from ear to ear! 

Did you contribute to the campaign and have received your Digital Content? What’s your take on the Comic and Handbook? Sound off after the break on the Cobra Island Forums
