2018 GIJoeCon Information Brochure Is Now Available

It’s here! The 2018 GIJoeCon Information Brochure is online and available for your reading pleasure! You can download the direct PDF file here: 2018 GIJoeCon Information Brochure

Let’s cut to the chase though – You want know what the 2018 Convention set theme is? Well, hold on to your seats, as the theme is Python Patrol vs. Slaughters Marauders!

PYTHON PERIL: MARAUDERS TO THE RESCUE!

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 slitherine nastiness to get the best of the entire SLAUGHTER’S MARAUDERS team!

The set includes –

  • SLAUGHTER’S MARAUDERS: Sgt. Smasher, Footloose, Hardball, Mutt & Junkyard, Spirit & Freedom. 
  • PYTHON PATROL: Major Bludd, Python H.E.A.T. Viper x3, Python Lamprey x3, Python Laser Viper x3

There’s also the 12″ Exclusive set, the Green Beret Machine Gun Outpost Boxed Set! There’s so much to talk about, so join us after the break to get in on the GIJoeCon 2018 discussion here on the Cobra Island Forums!

G.I.Joe Club Figure Subscription Service 4 Billy Arboc Preview

Here it is…the figure that many of you have been waiting for! Today via the G.I.Joe Club‘s  website came the reveal of none other than Cobra Commander’s son, Billy! With that said, here’s the scoop from the Club:

Includes: NEW head, submachine gun, sword, grappling hook, and figure stand.

The fourth limited edition GIJCC Figure Subscription Service contains a variety of fan requested characters from all eras of the 3 3/4-inch G.I. Joe A Real American Hero series. This assortment includes classic 80’s, 90’s, international, and a never before released character to add to your modern era action figure collection.

Upon subscription completion, you will receive a bonus carded 13th mystery figure with the last shipment. Each single carded action figure features the highly articulated modern era sculpts with weapons and accessories to accomplish any mission! Please note that colors, accessories and body styles are subject to change. We will be filling in all pictures before the subscription period ends.

Quick side note from the Club –

Hey Guys!

His last name is required for trademark and it’s an anagram for COBRA. This figure does not include a backpack because his sword fits into a slot on the back of the harness… and knowing is half the battle!

Billy has been a highly requested figure for many years…but will this be your definitive Billy?

G.I.Joe Collectors Club Figure Subscription Service 4 Registration Temporarily Suspended

Well, there’s a bit of disappointing news to share with those of you that are still interested in signing up for the GIJCC’s FSS 4.0. The G.I.Joe Collectors Club just sent out the following e-mail regarding registration –

———-

Hello all-

We are temporarily suspending the order period for the GI Joe Collectors’ Club FSS 4.0 until after BotCon, due to the implementation of the new credit card security protocols.  Unfortunately, the new protocols require that we do an update on our FSS server and software, and we need time to implement and test the new version. The timing is unfortunate, as we were unaware that the current software was not going to be compatible with the new protocols.

 All of the existing orders are fine.  All new orders will have an adequate order period when we turn the system back on, so no worries.  We are also going to temporarily suspend the release of the figure images until we restart the order period. Again, if you have already placed your order, it is fine, and you will not need to do anything when we restart.  We also checked with the manufacturer and the extension of the order period will not affect the delivery date.
We will send out an email notice when we resume the order period.  The upside is that the total order period will be longer than originally planned.
Thanks for your understanding,
Brian
———-
We’ll keep you posted as new info is received…but it doesn’t look like it’s going to be any time soon.
