SDCC Danger at the Docks to Hit TRU.com on July 24

SDCC Danger Docks VAMP mk2

It’s almost time for SDCC 2014!

Next week is the 2014 San Diego Comic Con!  It’s a celebration of genre-related goodness with everything from panels featuring the latest movies to forthcoming toy lines on display.  It’s also a time when exclusive products are made available through manufacturers and retailers.   The G.I. Joe brand is no stranger to this concept– with a history of SDCC exclusive items sold through HasbroToyShop.com including the “Pimp Daddy” Destro, Sgt. Slaughter, and Jinx figures and even some G.I. Joe/Transformers cross-over items.  This year, however, the place to check out at the con is the Toys R Us booth!

As reported earlier here at JBL, Toys R Us will be offering an exclusive version of the forthcoming 50th Anniversary “Danger at the Docks” set at the Entertainment Earth Booth (#2343) featuring Flint in his classic colors as well as the first-ever Generation 3 update of the desert VAMP Mk 2.  However, this item will also be available online starting on July 24, 2014!

That’s right– this set, along with a host of other items including this admin’s sought-after movie-accurate TMNT figures, will be available at the following link on July 24, 2014!

So get ready to hit those F5 keys and set your browser bookmarks!  July 24th is going to be an interesting day to shop online!

Please note: there is also a standard “urban” version of this set available as part of the 50th Anniversary line which will be available at brick & mortar Toys R Us stores later this Summer/early Fall.

    Thanks for the heads-up, Fred! This is the VAMP Mark II version I want most of the two and I wasn’t sure I’d have a chance at snagging it if it didn’t show up at HTS. Fingers crossed for the 24th!
