It’s just a little over two months until the 2014 G.I. Joe Convention and the G.I. Joe Collector’s Club has released another preview image from this year’s “Zombie Initiative” convention set. Ladies and Joe fans, meet Eco-Force member Clean Sweep!
Poor Clean Sweep– he’s been without any sort of action figure presence since his 1991 Eco-Warriors debut and subsequent discontinuation the following year. Okay, so his original was sort of bland in comparison to his teammates but I always liked Specialist Daniel Price– even if his head sculpt looked more like a high school science teacher than a member of the G.I. Joe team. For his G.I. Joe Convention update, the folks over at Boss Fight Studios worked hard to come up with a suitable update and their efforts paid off. I see some Data-Viper parts and the Retaliation Cobra Trooper rifle. Plus, I’m loving that HAZMAT helmet!
All-in-all a TERRIFIC update to the original design. Now if only he keeps his “high school science teacher” head sculpt!
ECO-Force Clean Sweep 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).

It would have been cool to know whether or not Boss Fight Studios went with the balding high school teacher look or the DIC cartoon version. Guess the club wants us to fork over the dough in order to find out? No thanks, I’ll pass.
