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
