The reveals for the Joe Con 2015 Tiger Force vs. Iron Grenadiers set continue with the unveiling of the Iron Grenadiers’ premiere anti-tank specialist: Metal-Head!
– 25th Anniversary Modern Style/Fully Poseable Action Figure
– NEW HEAD SCULPT on 1st Modern Era Character Release
– Based on 1990 Design with Removable Harness, Sheath & Knife
– Includes Cobra Logo Stand, Backpack System with Positionable Arms,
2-Connection Cables, 8-Removable Rockets, Assault Rifle, & Pistol.
(Note: Photo depicts mock up and final product may slightly differ.)
I would have thought that the Club would have gone back to the 2005 MARS Attacks Metal-Head for inspiration but instead it seems that instead they’ve looked to the 1990 Metal-Head as the basis for this new version. It also seems that they’re using the Pursuit of Cobra Snake Eyes‘ web gear on this one– which means those elastic straps are going to be removed by this particular admin.
The figure will feature a new head sculpt by Boss Fight Studio but the image released is just a Photoshop mock-up so it’s hard to appreciate how good the final product will look in just over one month’s time at Joe Con 2015. (Provided that the registration system goes online any time soon.)
This means we have the following figures remaining before we’ve had a good look at the entire set:
- Tiger Force ):
Sgt. Stalker, Dial-Tone, Big Brawler, Wreckage, Recondo, Edwin “Lifeline” Steen.
- Iron Grenadiers (nine figures): General Mayhem,
Metal-Head, Undertow Officer, Iron Anvils x 3, Undertow x 3.
