A bunch of figures have been revealed already- Charbroil, Muskrat, Psyche-Out, Frag-Viper, Letal, and Cobra Mortal.

I'm ambivalent about most of them so far, except the Frag-Vipers and (believe it or not) Psyche-Out. Hopefully Spearhead and the SAW Viper save it for me, though I'll bet I'll try to get this one depending on how the Homefront Heroes registration goes.

Stolen from Hisstank:

The 2013 JoeCon Brochure is now online including details of the G.I. JOE: Night Force Team - Nocturnal Fire Squad and the Cobra Demolitions Team!

"G.I. JOE: Night Force is a covert unit specializing in nighttime surveillance and defensive operations. Each team member has been selected for their enhanced skills, sophisticated hardware and advanced technology to surprise and vanquish any enemy!

This fan favorite and highly requested team contains several of the classic Night Force members and some new additions available for the first time in the modern era 25A style.

Our special edition Nocturnal Fire squad includes: Charbroil, Hit & Run, Muskrat, Psyche-Out, Repeater and Spearhead with Max (NEW Bobcat).

The Cobra Demolitions Team is ready to take on any obstacle that gets in their path of destruction. Led by the mysterious Cobra Mortal, he employs Cobra Letal and the deadly saboteur Crimson Asp (NEW female character). Their specialized troopers include: Cobra Frag-Vipers x 3, Cobra S.A.W.-Vipers x 3."

A box full of late 80s Joes and SAW and Frag-Vipers? Sold.

I can only imagine if they did Cobra Commander- I actually like his design in this flick, and a Hot Toys version of that would be another $250 out of my pocket.

I don't think it needs its own thread-

Hot Toys GI Joe: Retaliation Snake Eyes figure

I'm not big on 1/6 stuff, but man, I'm thinking about getting this.  :o

OK, I'll just leave it here then. Sounds like we won't get the first shipment until after Christmas anyway, so it is what it is.

I was going to grab Gandalf and Legolas, but I have so many of them from Toy Biz I didn't want any more. Though I'll probably grab them anyway.

Found a big display of these at K-Mart like Jesse mentioned (thanks for the heads up!), so that was nice. Grabbed the 6" versions of Bilbo, Thorin, and Tauriel, and I have to admit, the 4" line looked great. Gandalf and Gollum were like little works of art, so I'll probably go back and grab some of those now.  ::)

Got my cases of wave 5 and 7 from BBTS this week. Finished for the year, except for Sandstorm Leia and the 501st Trooper.

Got this email the other day:

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

This is going out to everyone who subscribed to the GI Joe Collectors' Club Figure Subscription Service.

If any of you have moved since you placed your subscription order it's time for you to update your new address!

Please click here to log in and check your account!

We are anticipating that the first two figure shipment will ship before Christmas so that means you have until December 2nd to update your address. After that date, we do not guarantee that your shipment will go the correct address.

In order to get all of the orders out the door in one week, we need to start the printing and prep for all of the orders we received starting on December 3rd.

Provided that our shipment from China is not delayed, we are working on getting all orders out the door before Christmas. We will hopefully start sending them out the week before Christmas.

For those of you who have purchased on the installment plan, we anticipate that the second billing will take place in mid-January so we will give you updates as soon as we know the final schedule.

Thanks for all of your support and we hope you have a Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday Season!


PS. If you have any questions, you can use the link at the bottom of the log in page to contact customer service.

So I have to ask: reveal the figures we get in this thread, or start a spinoff spoiler thread?

I found a 5-pack of Bilbo, Thorin, Fili, Kili, and Dwalin  at Barnes & Noble today, so if you guys are looking, you might try there.

I'm pretty surprised at the lack of retailers carrying these. I'm personally not interested in the 4" line, but the 6" line, well, I'd like to see them.

Attended the Assembly Required con in Des Moines last weekend. It was a blast, and I got some cool swag to boot:

A bunch of perfectly mint vintage Joes: Quick Kick, Budo, Falcon, Jinx, Cobra Commander, Toxo-Viper, Techno-Viper, and Laser Viper. The full cards were a bonus, and none of these cost more than $12.

But the best part was these two:

JoeCon 2011 Python Tele-Viper I bought from one of the dealers, then a preproduction Retaliation Sneak Attack Storm Shadow! (At least I think that's what Hasbro is going to call it.) I won it in the raffle, so that was a pretty sweet bonus.

If you're in the area, I'd make the drive to next year's gathering. It's small for now, but the deals to be had on vintage and modern are incredible, plus the store hosting it (Jay's CD & Hobby) is one of the neatest places I've ever been.

Bought one of these bad boys today. Had a 15% off coupon which made the price what I expected to pay, so I couldn't pass it up.

Now, to find a place to put it. It's still in my trunk since the box is so huge.

Found a case of this wave at my local Target. Figures I'd find this wave after I bought a INC for $20 shipped on ebay, but at least I have that dude carded and loose now.
