Wow… talk about a sneak preview! The good folks at BigBadToyStore.com shocked fans a few weeks back with the preview of their Renegades and Dreadnoks seven packs! Not content to just let things go at that, BBTS recently shared some samples with ToyNewsI.com– OF ALL 14 FIGURES!!!
WOW. Yeah, just WOW. I’m a fan of these sets already but this preview really pushed these to the “top of my list” in terms of anticipation.

The gang from Pawtucket will have a real presence this year at the annual New York Comic Con and have issued a press release with details on which lines will be featured– and it looks like pretty much ALL of them.
For Joe fans, the most important information is highlighted below but you can read the full press release after the jump. The big news? The previously teased seven packs will be exclusive to online retailer BigBadToyStore.com.

At New York Comic Con Hasbro will reveal the highly anticipated G.I. JOE 7-pack battle sets available as a Big Bad Toy Store exclusive later in 2011 for the first time at the opening of the convention. The brand that launched “the first action figure” in the mid 1960’s continues to introduce highly detailed figures and vehicles as well as comics, movies and television shows that have been embraced by millions of fans across the globe. Hasbro will also have on display in its booth a wide array of the current 2011 G.I. JOE toy line. The epic saga of G.I. JOE vs. COBRA is captured in great detail in the line’s 3.75-inch action figures featuring well known characters including DUKE, SCARLETT, COBRA COMMANDER and two of the most famous ninjas of all time, SNAKE EYES and STORM SHADOW. The brand is also looking forward to the theatrical release of the second major motion picture based on the brand hitting theaters in June, 2012 from Paramount Pictures.
