The 2012 G.I. Joe Collector’s Convention sets featuring the Oktober Guard sold out in near record time. Those who were hoping to snag a non-attending Homefront Heroes set had to either be incredibly lucky to have been online when they were listed or have ties in the Springfield underground. Realizing that this rapid of a sellout leads to an unhappy membership, the GIJCC raised the possibility of a second production run but made no guarantees. Well, that run has now come to fruition. This email went out to all Collector’s Club members late yesterday:
The official G.I. Joe Collectors’ Club is proud to announce a special limited edition second-run of the “sold out” and extremely popular 2012 Operation: Bear Trap! convention set.

I don’t know what this bodes for the future but for those of you who missed this set, now is the time to try and snag a fantastic update on the Oktober Guard. Once this particular site admin gets finished moving and unpacks, the review of those figures might FINALLY be posted.
