Does anyone have any thoughts on this year's convention souvenirs:

1. Dee Jay with a Vehilcle
2. 3 Pack & 2 Pack Maybe TARGATS and Joe winter figures or vice versa
3. Backstop with Persuader
4. Maggot with WORMS trooper
5. Some vehicles repainted as BF2000?

Not as clear cut as last year.

Drop Figure- Dee Jay
Two Pack Hot Wire and Overkill
Three Pack Laser Vipers
Figures with Vehicles...

Reuse of Mass Device emitter as "laser weapon"


Vehicles you got me, probably the Cobra Adder from the Valor/Venom line as a Vector other than that... no guesses... I think we may get Back Stop, Arctic Stalker, Blizzard (indicating who the 13 surprise will be in the FSS 6.0)

Thanks!

Forgot about the Missing Hot Wire and Overkill and Laser-Vipers. Hate to think that Dee-Jay might be the paradrop figure. I hope it will be as easy to obtain as Freefall, and not another NF Crazy Legs. My credit card is going to be maxed out by the end of this week :)

I can't recall if the club has indicated the number of souvenirs that will be offered. Usually they offer some hints a month or so before the convention. Did I miss something?

Highly doubt we'll get WORMS trooper with a vehicle. Probably a three-pack, if that.

DeeJay is a no-brainer, I could see them pairing him with a vehicle (maybe re-painted Ice Dagger or Sky Sweeper)
TARGAT makes sense for the drop figure
Hotwire and Overkill 2 pack
WORMS with a DTC Hiss or Surveillance Port

Long shots: Overkill with Mole pod (repainted like his original vehicle), Nullifier with Sky Hawk (black and gold paint), Ferret w/ DTC Hiss (black and gold), Hotwire and Dr. Mindbender (Ver. 2 or 5) 2-pack, Backstop with Persuader.

I also wouldn't be surprised is we didn't see a Sky Hawk painted Cobra blue.


Just can't see the club using the Pit or Rhino for the con, either would be way too expensive. Either way, we'll know more Thursday!

I like the Targat parachute drop, but see a the drop fig with a new head sculpt

Parachute Drop-Windmill(regular)
2 pack-Dee Jay and Backstop
3 pack-Worms
Attended bonus-LAW
Rhino(long shot)
other vechiles no sure

Ninja Combat Cruiser 4 x 4 with LAW canon as the Eliminator Jeep. The Cannon and turret fit in the missile launch ninja Combat Cruiser...

Well, the club used the Crimson Hydra/ Sky Sweeper mold last year, so we know that's available. It could be done in silver and called the "Sky Sweeper", once again.

Would be nice if we could get something resembling a Maggot for the WORMS but I agree with above posters who say a repainted HISS is the best we can hope for. I still seriously doubt they'd even produce a vehicle if they can make three WORMS troopers a three-pack.

Could be a Steel Crusher, but I think the Cobra weapon will be the MASS Device emitter reused as a "Laser Weapon"

Either the Deviant or Steel Marauder (POC Mechs) could come with Hotwire as to mimic his 2008 convention appearance.

My thoughts are DEE JAY would be like AIR RAID with the drop being either BACKSTOP or TARGAT. a 2 pack with OVERKILL and HOT WIRE. A three pack of WORMS.

I'd hate to see TARGAT as the drop figure. This figure has been on our FSS wish lists since 2012 and then to relegate him to a super rare con paradrop figure is just unfair.

I would agree strongly with L. Kelty on this. TARGAT needs a proper filecard with card art

This convention stands to be one of the more frustrating ones for me. I really want DeeJay, Overkill and Hotwire. It's just hard to justify spending those prices on scalpers.

Hot wire could come with a Transformer Drone BAT crossover being reused in different colors also...

These look like good guesses and the LAW was spot on...

Some other outlets are already reporting them. No WORMS.

Oh, and no Overkill either.

Pretty disappointed in the line up and relieved at the same time. I'll be able to save some money this year.

Well the Laser Vipers should sell quickly, those have been highly requested. Now to see if they come with their vintage backpack or just a laser rifle.
I wonder if the snowmobile pack comes with figures? If not, that might be a slow seller, like some of the big vehicles.
The two pack is almost certainly Dee Jay and Corrosion (Brazilian Dee Jay repaint) so that takes Dee Jayout of the running for the FSS 6 mystery figure.
Backstop is in the comic as a paratrooper so that could be this years drop figure and would be highly sought after like Freefall last year. I'm not sure I like this trend of putting first release, ARAH Joes as the paradox figure, unless they made more than last year.

Maybe we'll see Overkill next year in FSS 7 (and Tundra Stalker is in the comic too).

What is the 12" Souvenir? I'm curious.

jared.vitosh@gmail.com
06-15-2017, 09:44 AM
Umm, no mention of 12" souvenirs except they are selling the Man of Mystery and accessory set. I guess we will see all this for sure when the club store opens later tonight.

How much for the Arcane Accessories?

If Backstop is the para figure I hope they are relatively easy to obtain like Freefall and unlike NF Crazy Legs.

By "easy to obtain" to mean at the con or after? I don't know about at the Con, but Freefall quickly went over $100 on the secondary market. I would have rather seen him in the FSS, so every member could have had a chance at him for $30. Same with Backstop.

I use agents in place and last year my designated Agent was able to get me a Drop Veteran Freefall. (Mine was one of the ones that was actually Dropped) This year's primary agent doesn't have as good a track record but I have a plan B

Some of those look pretty good. I'm at home with a new baby so if anybody at the Con is picking up an extra Backstop or Dee Jay to resell to another club member let me know.

jared.vitosh@gmail.com
06-15-2017, 06:05 PM
Also I just noticed Corrosao (the bad guy in the Dee Jay 2 pack) is holding Hardball's grenade launcher! If that weapon is available, let's get a Hardball figure next year.
