Last year, the G.I. Joe Collectors Club strongly indicated that they would provide a hint to the 2015 G.I. Joe Convention set in the Diamond Solicitation of their convention comic.
Sure enough, in the comic, an ad for the 2015 G.I. Joe Convention appeared, complete with a tiger pattern on the background. As we all know, last year’s set had Tiger Force elements.
Fast forward to this year… the Diamond Solicitation of the JoeCon comic hit shops last week, and there is another G.I. Joe Convention advertisement… but the background is different:
That’s right, it’s the clear blue sky.
Now, the G.I. Joe Collectors Club never stated this year’s comic would contain a hint to the JoeCon set, but if we’re to go by previous years, they could be throwing us a bone here.
Could we be seeing Sky Patrol in 2016?
And if so, who would they be facing off against? The G.I. Joe newsletter has been featuring Action Force pretty heavily, but I’m not sure how Action Force dovetails with Sky Patrol (especially considering they’re both good guys).
Who knows, the whole thing could be a red herring, but it’s certainly going to make for some interesting speculation. Hopefully we’ll hear more details about the 2016 G.I. Joe Con set soon! Keep watching GeneralsJoes and GIJoeClub.co for the latest info.
That’s disappointing but at least it saves me money. I know I should probably wait until they are revealed to make a judgment but I just never had any interest in sky patrol.
Maybe it’s not Action Force, but ACTION MAN that’ll be getting the focus. It came out with IDW’s FCBD Zero Issue of ROM:Spacknight. That it also contained a a back-up tale featuring Mr. Mann, setting up for the ACTION MAN comic coming in June.
I would definitely dig Sky Patrol because that has always been my favorite sub-team.
Airborne, Airwave, Altitude, & Drop Zone already have base bodies.
I just hope the baddies are NOT sky-themed…
I wouldnt mind a Vapor pilot figure
There were two Cobra Sky Patrol member that was released in Brazil. Escopriao Voador which is Cesspool’s head on Recoil’s body and Scoop’s legs and Abutre Negro which uses Dee Jay’s head and legs with Cesspool’s body. There were also two Joes released there too which were Albatroz and Aguia Commando which is just reverse mixes of each other using Sneak Peek and Maverick parts. Wouldn’t be too far fetched to think the club might dip into those ones.
