The G.I. Joe Collector’s Club Pythona mock-up has been unveiled!
Every so often the G.I. Joe Collector’s Club catches my by surprise. Today is one of those days.
When Pythona was revealed as the 2016 membership incentive figure I was a bit skeptical. Sure, the Club said that they would be releasing a Pythona figure but given the Club’s history of wash, rinse, repaint I found myself wondering if they could really pull off the new headsculpt and complicated paint deco that would be needed to bring this Cobra-La emissary to life.
Color me surprised. Pleasantly. In fact, she looks pretty good when compared to the animated appearance of the character:
Here’s the official text from the Club’s announcement earlier today:
The COBRA-LA EMISSARY: PYTHONA is the official G.I. Joe Collectors’ Club FREE Membership Incentive Figure for 2016! This FREE modern era action figure will be sent to any G.I. Joe Club member that selects the 3 3/4-inch figure option and whose membership is active by March 16, 2016. This exclusive and never before released female figure features an amazing NEW head sculpt with removable hairpiece, along with other unique parts to re-create her unique character from the 1987 animated feature… G.I. Joe: The Movie!
This highly requested female action figure comes with classic file card and accessories, including: Cobra logo stand, removable cloak, and tentacle creature.
Make sure to check out the November 2015 issue of the official GIJCC magazine to see her full character artwork and special behind-the-scenes images of her design.
GIJCC Members can expect to receive this exclusive bagged figure with all her accessories and file card in late spring/early summer of 2016!
Nice. Seriously… I’m excited about this one. Now bring on GOLOBULUS!!!!
