JoeCon 2012: Images trickling in from across the web

The official registration hasn’t opened yet but last night Golden Ticket holders were able to pick up their con sets and receive the attendee bonus exclusive item– the Russian repainted Snarler cycle with side car.

A quick check of the web revealed that the crew over at HISS Tank have rushed to get some nice light-boxed in-hand images uploaded.  I’ve mirrored a few of them below but you can check out the entire gallery over at  There’s also the images from Madmac41 and Photonut from last night.

All-in-all it’s a pretty solid set!  While I’m not overly crazy about the long-coated Iron Grenadiers I’m positively giddy over the Oktober Guard figures.  (Okay, even Iron Bear who still looks like he’s 12.  What?  Comrade Doogie Hauser is now in Russian high command?!!)

It looks like Operation: Bear Trap is going to go down in the books as “one of the good ones.”

Now someone get their hands on the all-but-revealed Darklon already!!

JoeCon2012: Stormavik revealed

Even with Botcon in full swing, the Collector’s Club manages to drop a surprise on Joe fans today.

The latest reveal is Stormavik, stalwart  of the Oktober Guard and soldier of the former Soviet Union!

Not seen  since Comic Pack #7, Stormavik is looking pretty solid in his G3 update!  Compared to Brekhov, who was rather off model IMHO, this Russian paratrooper looks as if he’s stepped right off of the comic page!  It’s just another reason this convention set is shaping up to made of pure AWESOME!
