JoeCon 2012: Images trickling in from across the web

The official registration hasn’t opened yet but last night Golden Ticket holders were able to pick up their con sets and receive the attendee bonus exclusive item– the Russian repainted Snarler cycle with side car.

A quick check of the web revealed that the crew over at HISS Tank have rushed to get some nice light-boxed in-hand images uploaded.  I’ve mirrored a few of them below but you can check out the entire gallery over at HISSTank.com.  There’s also the images from Madmac41 and Photonut from last night.

All-in-all it’s a pretty solid set!  While I’m not overly crazy about the long-coated Iron Grenadiers I’m positively giddy over the Oktober Guard figures.  (Okay, even Iron Bear who still looks like he’s 12.  What?  Comrade Doogie Hauser is now in Russian high command?!!)

It looks like Operation: Bear Trap is going to go down in the books as “one of the good ones.”

Now someone get their hands on the all-but-revealed Darklon already!!

JoeCon 2012: Schrage revealed!

The G.I. Joe Collector’s Club continues their 2012 1:18 convention set reveals with Schrage!

The Oktober Guard infantryman from East Germany is looking pretty spiffy in his first 25a-style construction!  He’s even clutching his beloved AK-47 and sports some very detailed web gear with what appears to be a sculpted canteen!  In fact, this figure looks as if he’s stepped right off the pages of G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero issue #6 in which the Soviet team debuted.

Honestly– if this is any indication of how the rest of this set is going to turn out, I’m going to be one happy Joe fan when my non-attending con set arrives in the mail.
