2017 SDCC Cobra Missle Command Set

Love the fake aged/distressed box.  It would be amazing if they tried something like this for the Sears Cantina Set. :P

I like where their head's at with this one. It's fun, it's a throwback, it's something different. And it's more affordable than the last few sets, even though the crossover stuff was fun in its own way. I'm really loving the Thrawn exclusive this year and if I have a shot at only one, I'll take that. But if there's time for a second pass at the HTS store for this set I'll probably pick it up also.

This is awesome.  One of the only GIJ toys my brother and I didn't own.  Never even knew about it till I got older.

I like it. Considering there's no new GI Joe stuff other than Club offerings for the next two years, I'll try to pick this up.

I remember seeing some images of this back in the 80's, but I always thought that it had been something that was part of some advertisement and not a playset that had been released.  But this is a pretty awesome offering!

I'd like to see some of those old Kenner exckusive sets re-offered.  The cantina is one.  And personally, I've always wanted to get that Sears Cloud City carbon freeze chamber.

That "yellowed" box is a nice touch.
