The 2014 G.I. Joe Convention is 68 days away and yet it’s time for another reveal from this year’s convention set: The Zombie Initiative! This time the G.I. Joe Collector’s Club has unveiled ECO-Force technician Ozone!
This year’s convention set has been a series of almost spot-on updates to designs from the latter half of the A Real American Hero run and this is no exception. Ozone is a terrific update to his 1991 Eco-Warriors version both in terms of color and overall aesthetic. I strongly suspect the expert hands of the team at Boss Fight Studios in this update which includes the reuse of recent parts like the grenade web gear from the G.I. Joe Retaliation Cobra Trooper! Otherwise it looks the the Resolute Zartan arms are seeing some use as are the thighs that were most recently used with the Retaliation Kamakura action figure. Now, if only we could see his bearded head!!! Also, is it me or is that helmet sitting a bit odd on the shoulders? Otherwise, solid work from the G.I. Joe Collector’s Club!
ECO-Force Ozone comes complete with everything shown.
That leaves the following as the next preview options:
- Zombie Hunters: Outback,
T’J Bang, Steel Brigade Commander
- E.C.O. Force:
Flint, Ozone, Clean-Sweep Cobra Lab Rat x2,Toxo-Vipers x 3, Toxo-Zombies x 3, and Repulsor with Dawg (NEW K-9).

All very nice and Blue but would it have killed them to have shown us the head sculpt? Boss Fight Studios is the major draw here, after all. For the money these premium sets go for, I would expect to know what I’m purchasing. Neon fans will freak at all the 90’s goodness but I’m still not sold on this one.
