Back at Joe Con 2015, the Hasbro team revealed several 50th Anniverary-themed SDCC exclusives for this year’s con. However, they hinted that one more “very special set” was coming. Attendees speculated briefly over what it might be but, in all honesty, it was quickly forgotten in light of the on-hand items shown. (GUNG-HO!) A few days ago, an image leaked out that seemed to indicated that a Kre-O set based on Sgt. Slaughter was coming.
Now, thanks to the intrepid folks over at Uproxx, we have confirmation that Kre-O Slaughter’s Marauders are coming! Not only that, but Sgt. Slaughter himself will be on hand on Saturday July 11, 2015 at the Hasbro booth for two separate autograph signings. Having had the privilege of meeting the man himself again last year at a logo baseball park, I can say that fans are in for a real treat with the Sarge himself attending!
Here’s a breakdown of what’s in the set:
- Sgt. Slaughter
- Low Light
- Triple T Tank
- Destro (“Pimp Daddy”/SDCC deco)
- Iron Grenadier x 3
I’m not a huge Kre-O collector myself but this set is completely awesome! Good character selection, fun deco’s, the Triple T Tank, and some cool video-tape styled packaging!
