G.I. JOE H.A.V.O.C. MK-II (Add-On Vehicle purchased separately) will be available in late spring from the GIJCC Store. This 2014 Limited Edition club exclusive vehicle will be $42 + shipping!


369

Based on the colors of the original H.A.V.O.C. driven by CROSS-COUNTRY, this vehicle features an opening canopy, free-rolling wheels, a moveable windshield wiper and hi-velocity X-1 torpedoes. Plus, you can elevate the vehicle's launcher to rotate 360 degrees and fire four missile accessories!


368
[Vehicle will be bagged with accessories and some assembly is required. Cross-Country figure NOT INCLUDED.]

The H.A.V.O.C. [Heavy Assault Vehicle Ordnance Carrier] MK-II combines the stamina of a tank with the handling of an off-road vehicle. The result is a machine that makes its own road over tough terrain to battle the evil forces of COBRA.

Only Joe with a vehicle that he can call his own. I bet he doesn't let anyone use it either.

I hope we see more of these vehicles in the future! The beauty of repaints!!!

That is nice. I wasn't sure I was going to get one but I think I might have to now. I know it's a simple repaint but it looks good.

Am I seeing a place to put a rifle on the fender or is it just sitting there?

Edit* I guess it's just sitting there. Need to get my eyes checked, lol.

Very cool, and a great price too!

Will there be a limit as to how many each member can order?

Excellent! A very creative way to give Cross Country his ride. Works well.

I might try swapping out the "ski-pedoes" with something else. Anyone have any suggestions?

Can you guys tell us how many will be available?

Typically they do limit 1 per membership. But since not everyone does the 3 3/4 inch Joes (like me), they have a little extra.

I'm guessing that it took a little while for iceberg to sell through, I'm sure they will have a good stock on hand for people to purchase.

Hey Leo. You can usually fit most regular missles in the ski-pedo mounts. If orange isnt your thing, the launchable missles are of a universal size. If you can find four of the same type

For example with my PoC Snowcat I replaced the yellow missles with the missles from two RoC Avalanche show vehicles. Then replaced the ski-pedos with the grey Triple T missles from the old missle refill pack. I made this a vehicle for Convention Natalie Poole.

I can't say I buy this as it's intended concept of being a HAVOC MkII. I do however like it at face value, a simple Snowcat redeco. It looks like it would be right at home in the arsenals of Action Force and/or the Oktobre Guard. Ill buy two if possible.

Since this was announced, I have. Been wishing this had the two cannons from the original HAVOC mounted on the sides instead of the ski-pedoes. Of course I have no idea how one would actually do that, I just thought it would be cool.
I have always preferred my vehicles to have some weapons besides missiles. In my mind as a child, guns had almost unlimited ammo, but what are you supposed to do when you run out of missiles?

This is a fantastic and very inventive use of the Snowcat mold. It's too bad the original HAVOK mold was probably lost/ destroyed.

Great work. Already looking forward to 2015!!

I like the idea of add on vehicles, I hope this trend continues.

I was just thinking that next year the club could do Frostbite as the membership figure and re-release the Snow Cat.

For all we know Hasbro might have that planned for 2015

AWESOME!!!!! Thanks again Collectors Club. Keep these exclusive vehicles coming. Next year lets do a white & yellow HAVOC with an exclusive Frostbite. The irony would be epic.

Like the effort you guys are giving for the fans- can't get it all right, but you are trying.

Ill probably call this a "Forest Cat", basically just a Snow Cat for use in non-arctic conditions

The driver will be a "convention" Avalanche crafted from a Skull Squad trooper and the head from the TRU "Winter Operations" Backblast with the mic and rifle from the original Battleforce 2000 Avalanche figure. Plus a black Big Ben backpack and gray convention knife (As mentioned in his original file card.)

Just need to start looking for 4-8 color matching compatible missles

Maybe a simple swap for the sound attack weapon that came with the 2003 Snow Cat? I have no idea how close the part molds are, but it might work for at least one side. At least then you'd have one cannon on it.

The sound attack version is a slightly modified mold. The tabs the ski-pedoes go on are flattened out.

I'm personally hoping one of the customizers makes old style HAVOC missiles that will mount on the tabs.
