Another day, another 2014 Convention reveal! While today’s image isn’t of the Real American Hero set, it could have potential implications for us fans of the small figures.
Today, the G.I. Joe Collectors Club revealed an awesome looking tiger stripe camouflage uniform for their 12″ “Codename: G.I. Joe” Convention set, celebrating the 50th Anniversary of G.I. Joe. It’s got some terrific, intricate camouflage, and looking at other reveals, we have the familiar green beret as well.
So what does that mean for RAH fans? Well, perhaps nothing, but considering a 4″ Joe Colton is going to be available as an exclusive, could this perhaps be an indication of what that figure might look like? Just like Hasbro did in 1994, could the Collectors’ Club be celebrating the anniversary with 4″ and 12″ representations of this great green beret figure?
It’s certainly possible. In ’94 there was a mail away for both a 12″ and a 3 3/4″ Joe Colton, it seems quite fitting that precisely 20 years later they might replicate that for the 50th celebration.
