2017 Con Set Battle force 2000
« on: January 21, 2017, 04:53:39 PM »

The new Con set for this year is Battle Force 2000 vs Cobra Bats.  meehh not that exciting.  I'll wait to see more pics.

I actually like the 12" Con set more

The first reveal is pretty well spot on, except for the helmet, which I feel is an improvement. The story looks like it takes place in Canada which is cool. Would be neat if they added one of the Canadian characters like Blackice to the set. Doubt it but that'd be a real cool homage to the Canadian Joecon crew!

Battle Force 2000. Love the original concept but maybe the execution could have been better.
Really have no thoughts on this set so far.

bit crap when we're 17 years past 2000. Even Battle Force 2020 or BF 2050 would've been better.

The story the Club has concocted for them predates their comic debut. And that, I believe, is due to BF 2000 being killed off in the comic.

like that stopped them before? Crazy Legs died and they still used him in Night Force.

Yeah, I agree, they do whatever they want. I'm just saying that the club's story predates Battle Force's debut and takes place in the '80's so it wouldn't make sense to call them BF2050 or whatever if this is supposed to be before their Marvel debut.

I'm not impressed by the price increase (again). At this point I'll wait until they go on sale just like I did with the Zombie set. ;)

Night Force, the exact opposite of everything chrome.

No kidding, with exchange/ shipping/insurance it's like $650 Canadian and that's not taking into consideration duty and taxes. I may just cherry pick like I did last year.

Not really collecting Joe anymore, but. I keep up with the news.

So far this is a nice update to the team, but the sheer number of BATS in the set seem like they just gave up on anything in depth.

What is more interesting to me will be the vehicles.  I can't wait to see what they do.
