COIL Con V is just six weeks away! To help prepare for the big day, we’ve enlisted the help of Justin and General’s Joes to help make the big reveals of our COIL Con Exclusives!
This year’s set will continue in the popular “COIL Strikes” theme, where we pit one COIL agent against an agent from one of its many rival factions. Last year’s set saw the COIL’s Naja Bhoot racing through the streets of Mumbai against special law enforcement agent Street Hawk, and 2012 had Zilant fighting against G.I Joe’s Dodger in the skies over Eastern Europe. This year, the COIL Strikes the United Kingdom… meet their newest agent, Shrike!
Shrike is the creation of veteran COIL designers Jay Hunger and Brian Kauffman and the first figure in the two-figure set which will be available only at COIL Con! Jay was also responsible for Sidewinder, the 2011 exclusive figure, and the 2012 figures. There will be 40 two-figure sets available at COIL Con V, and Justin has agreed to help us with the reveal of figure #2 as we get closer to the day of the show.
As mentioned earlier, COIL Con V will take place from 9 am to 5 pm on Saturday, September 13. This year’s convention has moved indoors to the Indianapolis Wyndham hotel. For anyone thinking of making the trip in from out of town, it’s mere minutes from the Indianapolis airport and there are rooms available with a special Convention rate ($99/night) for Friday and Saturday night.
