The reveals for the Joe Con 2015 Tiger Force vs. Iron Grenadiers set conclude with the unveiling of the Iron Grenadiers’ General Mayhem!
– 25th Anniversary Modern Style/Fully Poseable Action Figure
– NEW HEAD SCULPT on 1st Modern Era Character Release
– NEW OFFICIER’S JACKET with Rank & Campaign Medals
– Based on 2005 GIJCC Design with Removable Helmet
– Includes Cobra Logo Stand, Rocket Propelled Grenade
Launcher with Removable Grenade and Submachine Gun.
Hmmm… this figure definitely borrows the color palate and overall design concept from the 2005 General Mayhem. In terms of construction, I’m seeing what appears to be the legs and possibly a modified torso of the Pursuit of Cobra Destro figure.
The helmet appears to be a reuse of the 2012 Operation Bear Trap Voltar accessory.
As far as the head sculpt is concerned, this is another one of the Club’s Photoshop mock-ups which, in all honesty, aren’t the best way to preview figures that fans will be shelling out $375.00 to obtain. It’s supposed to be a new head sculpt but it’s hard to tell from the digital composite image just exactly WHAT the head really looks like or even if it’s going to be similar to the character of General Iron Bear, who was hinted to be the pre-MARS incarnation of General Mayhem.
Plus, he looks suspiciously like Miles Mayhem of MASK…
Now all we need are Private Parts and Major Confusion to accompany General Mayhem and we’ll have the beginning of a Three Stooges routine.
That’s it folks– we’ve now seen every figure in the set including:
- 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.
