Color me a bit surprised on this one. Yesterday was “HTS Day” for many Joe fans who found their browsers perpetually directed to HasbroToyShop.com, hoping for a chance to snag one of the 2016 SDCC G.I. Joe exclusives at the retail price. Around 10am CST yesterday, the products went live and the site’s bandwidth was overwhelmed. However, after a few hours the digital dust cleared and something interesting happened.
The 2016 SDCC G.I. Joe exclusives were still IN STOCK.
The same is true as of Wednesday morning. So, if you’re looking for either of these sets and passed on the frenzy yesterday, use the links below and grab the 2016 SDCC G.I. Joe exclusives hassle-free!
The SDCC 2015 Crimson Strike set has landed at JBL!
G.I. Joe has had a pretty good run of SDCC exclusives over the past few years. Starting with the infamous “Pimp Daddy Destro” and going all the way through the Danger at the Docks, fans have found themselves anticipating the announcement of each year’s newest piece.
The Crimson Strike is, by all means, a reverse of the forthcoming Silent Strike set that will debut at Toys R Us in August 2015. Here, G.I. Joe and Cobra have essentially traded vehicles– with the Cobra Scythe taking to the air while the G.I. Joe Chimera attempts to stave off its attacks. Somewhere on the ground, a random Alley Viper Officer runs around causing chaos.
Is the Crimson Strike set worth the effort to track down? Does the HISS work as a G.I. Joe vehicle? Is the Skystriker really flying for Cobra now?
HelaViper, the twisted genius behind the life-size SNAKE armor and many impressive costumes seen at recent Joe Cons is back with his latest offering… a life size paired Ally Viper shield and helmet combo!
After a self-imposed hiatus (two babies 16 months apart ;)) I’ve headed back to the workshop!
Ready for pre-order now, I will have a limited supply of these combo’s at the con, so pick-up one at the show for the show price of $350.00!
Because of continued requests, this handcrafted, wearable helmet is now available with the shield.
