GIJoeCon 2018 is now 91 days away and this year’s exclusive sets are still available!
Okay, that headline is slightly misleading. The 1:18 Python Peril: Marauders to the Rescue 15 figure convention sets had previously sold out during the preview period. That’s right– before fans even had the reveals for all nine figure builds, the sets (both attending and non-attending) were gone! Apparently, announcing that this was the final year for a Fun Publications run event was good for sales!
The folks at the GIJCC, however, were able to secure an additional run from the factory and more Python Patrol vs. Slaughter’s Marauders sets were produced– both for Homefront Heroes and convention attendees.
GIJoeCon 2018 is 139 days away and we’ve got our second figure preview– the Python Patrol Lamprey!
PYTHON PATROL AMPHIBIOUS TROOPER:
– 25th Anniversary Style/Fully Poseable Action Figure.
– Modern Era Update of Character based on 2003 design.
– THREE Army Builder action figures in this exclusive set.
– Includes removable face mask, vest, submachine gun,
pistol, swim fins, backpack, and Cobra Logo Stand.
Hmm… not entirely what I expected in terms of build.
