SDCC 2017 Cobra Missile Command exclusive.
« on: June 15, 2017, 11:14:21 PM »

WOW!!!!!

Hasbro has finally done an exclusive that is above and beyond what I thought they could ever do.  Add in that it will only be $50 US and it is incredible!!!!  I don't really collect Joe anymore since there is nothing at retail, but this is a must buy for me, even at the ridiculous after market price we here in Canada will get stuck paying.  Here is a link:

I like the remake of the vintage box idea.

To me this is about 7 years too late. While incredibly cool this to me is a 25th anniversary issue thing. Would have liked to see more molded plastic that can hold up to long time abuse. Display is nice but I also want play-ability. Is anyone getting this? I also thought someone in the fan community made their own version?

Had to get one, just because I'll never get the original.

Finally from Fan Expo thanks to a friend.  It is a beautiful thing to behold it brings me right back to all the stuff that I love about GI Joe.

The best part is I didn't have to buy off of eBay and pay ridiculous prices in shipping and customs. 

It was 80 bucks plus tax and considering it was only $50 US that's not too bad.

Thanks, it really is nice and a great example of why the 2007 reboot was so great for the toy line and collectors. 

It's a shame that Hasbro never got around to more releases and we've had this to stick with the club for that.
