Once again, the Joe Con 2015 set is going back to the 2003 Toys R Us exclusive Tiger Force set for inspiration. Lonzo R. Wilkinson gets an update that’s based on the o-ring Sgt Stalker v3 only without the vibrant blue paint apps of the original.
The downside of the Photoshop mock-ups is that it’s sometimes hard really get a good look at the figures we’re committing to before we’re asked to put down our money. In this case, it looks like Stalker is using the legs of the Retaliation G.I. Joe Trooper and removable beret that first debuted with the Retaliation Flint. We’re also seeing another release of the M2 machine gun that has been packaged with Kwinn, Retaliation Ultimate Roadblock, and the 50th Anniversary Leatherneck. Maybe a bit too much of a good thing?
We do, however, get a brand new sculpted head designed by the talented sculptors at Boss Fight Studio.
This means we have the only a few remaining figures left to be revealed before we’ve had a good look at the entire set:
- Tiger Force ):
Sgt. Stalker, Dial-Tone, Big Brawler, Wreckage, Recondo, Edwin “Lifeline” Steen.
- Iron Grenadiers (nine figures): General Mayhem, Metal-Head,
Undertow Officer, Iron Anvils x 3, Undertow x 3.
