I have been thinking they should do a set like this and that seems like a pretty good lineup. Bullhorn, Barricade, and Law would fit in very well with this set too.
I would suggest switching Mace and Law though. I would hate to see a figure like Mace limited to 800, but a lot of us can live without DEF Law since we are getting classic Law in the FSS.
The ROC Steel Crusher could make a good Headhunters vehicle and the Ninja Combat Cruiser would make a good SWAT vehicle (even though they just used it last year).

I really like DEF vs. Headhunters suggestion above, and here is another thought...

Ninja Force vs. Night Creepers

15 figure set

GI Joe Ninja Force
Dojo (new head)
Banzai (new head)
Bushido (FSS Nunchuk repaint, new head or helmet)
Ninja Force Snake Eyes
Ninja Force Scarlett
Budo (actually based on 1988 figure, new helmet)

Cobra Night Creepers
Night Creeper Leader (FSS repaint, original orange & black colors)
Orange Slice (FSS repaint, 1993 colors)
Red Ninja Dice (FSS repaint, 1993 colors... well maybe less pink)
Night Creeper x3 (v1 body, but black & orange colors to match NCL)
Night Creeper v2 x3 (based on 1993 figure, new head)

Exclusives
Freebie vehicle: Retaliation Ninja Speed cycle repainted as 1993 Ninja Lightning (they probably don't even have to make new ones, just gather up all the Retaliation motorcycles on clearance, throw away the drivers, repaint them, and give them away.)
Figure 2 pack: Ninja Force Zartan & Road Pig (cancelled Ninja Commandos concept)
3 pack: ?

I'm not sure what other vehicles to use. We just saw the Tiger Hawk, but a black repainted Eagle Hawk could work as a covert insertion vehicle for the ninjas and could also be used as a Night Force vehicle.

Do we need this many ninjas all at once? Probably not, a few of the important figures could keep getting sprinkled into the FSS. But this would just about take care of all the ARAH ninjas we would ever need, and add a few new figures into the mix. This would be very possible for the Club in terms of new pieces required too.

Either concept would be really cool. I imagine that tooling costs would be lower on a DEF of Ninja Force set compared to a Cobra-La or Sky Patrol Set. But lets limit the 2 and 3- packs to interesting repaints not essential characters such as Mace and Ninja Zartan.

I would remove one of the Headhunter Officers and put Mace in the box set. The RHINO should come with a DEF version of Cannonball from 2005.

Does anyone know if the Club has ever stated that the Convention Boxed Sets MUST be divided up as 6 Joes vs. 9 "enemies"?

I understand that it's easier to get those troop builder figures in there when 60% of the box is bad guys but I would think that at some point it limits the club to what is included in the box sets.

Take Tiger Force from this year. If I were asked the question, Would you like 3x Iron Anvils and 3x Undertows or would you like 2x Iron Anvils and 2x Undertows so we could then include a Tiger Force Roadblock and a Tiger Force Tripwire? I would take the the Roadblock and Tripwire every time.

Just curious what everyone else's input would be on changing the splits.

kelty11@verizon.net
04-24-2015, 12:46 PM
I think it depends on the year's theme. I agree that this year we could have done without the Undertow Officer if it meant a Bazooka in the set. The 2011, 2012 and 2014 sets were perfectly proportioned - all necessary characters in the box set. I feel that this year and 2013 were a bit uneven. Chuckles should have been included in the box set and Letal or Crimson Asp in the bagged set with Freestyle. Although, if you remember the 2002-2006 sets were almost all "bad guy" with the "good guy" available as bagged souvenirs.

The ratio probably has to also do with tooling costs - the 2015 set of 15 included 11 unique figures with 4 doubles. I imagine that a set of 15 unique individual figures would most likely cost more.

But lets limit the 2 and 3- packs to interesting repaints not essential characters such as Mace and Ninja Zartan.

I second this principal. I would want to have a good chance a figure like Mace. I wasn't sure if Ninja Zartan would be in that category for most people. His design is pretty far out there.

This ^
I don't think it has to be 6 vs 9, but it would certainly be more expensive to replace the bad guys troopers with unique Joes. I stuck with that ratio for my suggestion because the Club has used it since 2011 and it has become standard. They might change it if there was a good reason, but I could only think of 6 Joe ninjas I wanted anyway.

I would like to see this set made in a couple years if possible.

M.A.S.K. illusion is the ultimate weapon.
15 figure box set

Cobra Forces:

Miles Mayhem
Dr. Mindbender
Floyd Mallory
3 Techno vipers
3 Vipers

Gijoe:
Matt Trakkar
Brad Turner
Sci-Fi
Joe Colton (re issue in suit)
Dr. Biggle Jones
Cover girl (re issue in suit)

Exclusives:

condor (snarler cycle mold) just add propeliers
Vampire (Ram mold) just add wings to bottome
firefly with Julio Lopez (awestriker mold)
switchblade (helicopter from POC rhino target exclusive)

3 pack B.A.Ts
2 pack Flash and Grandslam


By having some figure re issues in different colors this will allow cost in tweeky existing vehicle tooling

Retooled Cobra Klaw (purple to match the Night Creepers!) could be a second vehicle.
3-Pack could be repaints of Hard Master, Soft Master and Kamakura.

Cobra La! Nuff' said.

tkallspark@yahoo.com
04-28-2015, 12:24 AM
G.I.JOE Renegades (with exclusive Coyote vehicle......a guy can dream)

To Celebrate the 30th Anniversary of M.A.S.K. The Club could expand on Agent Trakker's Group of Specialists, and From Within Cobra we could see the formation of V.E.N.O.M.

The club could use the ROC steel crusher, the transforming motorcycle (not sure it's name) the club could also bring back the ROCC and RHINO from the DTC line to use with a MASK vs. VENOM set, it could be an all new "Spy Troops adventure where illusion is the Ultimate Weapon".....And they could introduce sly rax and Floyd Malloy, and Bruno Sheppard as new Drednoks.......A Guy can dream!

Mike Power and his G.I.JOE EXTREME Centurion Stike Force.......POWER EXTREME! An all new Adventure Team Featuring Mike Power, Max Ray, Jake Rockwell, and Ace McCloud......Fighting off all new Battle Android Troopers!

Alpine joins up with G.I.JOE's New Adventure Team, a group of mountaineering Experts, the Adventure Team Unit: Sky Commanders!

G.I.JOE to the Rescue (the Original Members of the 82-83 lineup)

Vehicles REPAINT PATRIOT GRIZZLY as MOBAT, for Cobra a all new and improved Cobra THE ENEMY M.A.S.S. Device!


The D.E.F. with all new C.O.P.S. vs. The Headman and Big Boss......It's Crime Fighting Time!


Dr. Venom and the Black Dragon crime syndicate vs. The Adventure Team, Featuring a modern Black Spider Rendezvous ,Adventure Team Commander, Joseph Colton and G.I.JANE!

Cobra La! Nuff' said.

With Arctic Mindbender based on the movie and Pythona next year, you might be right. Just for fun, lets see if we can develop this idea a little bit. This year's TF set may not have been exactly what everyone wanted when they wrote "Tiger Force," so lets help the Club by letting them know what we would want in the box set and the add-ons for a Cobra La set.

Golobulus (obvious, would need extensive new parts)
Royal Guards (lots of them, and more new parts)
Maybe a new type of soldier that is a repaint of Nemesis Immortal

Joes:
BIG LOB
Ultimate ARAH Falcon??
Jinx?? (with new unmasked head with short hair)
??
??
??

How should we fill out the rest of the set and exclusives?

jared.vitosh@gmail.com
04-28-2015, 07:38 PM
G.I.JOE Renegades (with exclusive Coyote vehicle......a guy can dream)


Are there enough important Renegades characters left to make a whole con set? If the Club could do anything with Renegades (and it's a big if) Maybe they should just try to do a Coyote with Roadblock, like they are doing this year with the Sharc and Sub Viper. Still probably a long shot...


G.I.JOE 3 & 3/4 adventure Team vs Dr. Venom and the Black Dragon crime syndicate (include Mike Power in his first 1/18th scale appearance.

Vehicles a DTC repaint of the R.O.C.C. and for Dr. Venom and the Black Dragons a repaint of the Spy Troops Night Attack Helicopter.


I'm not real familiar with the AT and 12" Joes. Who is there to base the box set on besides Mike Power and the 4 adventurers the Club already made? For the Black Dragons, are you thinking of remaking some of the 2003 con set or something else?


G.I.JOE to the Rescue (the Original Members of the 82-83 lineup)

Vehicles REPAINT PATRIOT GRIZZLY as MOBAT, for Cobra a all new and improved Cobra THE ENEMY M.A.S.S. Device!

How exactly are you thinking of re-doing the 82-83 lineup? They have all been released recently, and some of them have had a near perfect version released.
I hope this doesn't seem like I don't like your ideas, I just want to know more about what you had in mind and have a fun discussion.

Obviously Cobra La is the next set. Artic Mindbender, Probably Frostbite is the 13th in original colors, Pythona, Original Law and Order (recruit with Falcon in the Movie) is in FSS 4.0 only makes sense. So here is my Cobra La/Convention AND CLUB MEMBER exclusives. I say Club member, after all this set will be sought after by all the members and some of us just do not attend conventions for various reasons, but we are willing to pay a higher price to have access than the Con goers. So here is my set idea:


Cobra La:

1.Golobulous
2-3. Cobra La Royal Guard x 2
4-6. Cobra La Guards x 3
7. SDCC Zarana Re-release Color changing plastic and Artic Vest (got to make her unique :) )
8. Cobra -La Scientist (Cobra Commander as a Cobra La citizen from the 1987 movie)
9. Artic Baroness (50th Body, better head and Artic Coat)

Joes
10. Artic Quick Kick (TRU Black Version with artic coat)
11. SDCC Red Jinx unmasked (short spiky hair w/removable blindfold and hooded head accessories)
12. Ultimate Falcon (Movie colors)
13. Big Lob (50h Leatherneck body to give him that Basketball height?)
14. Artic Lady Jaye (25th Anniversary 5 pack hat less cartoon version)
15. Artic Gung Ho (using new 50th with Coat accessory)

Parachute figure- Cobra Trooper different color/or additional weapon (like in the movie plus it saves costs.)

Two Pack - Artic Zandar and Artic Zartan (with color changing plastic. Basically only have to add a coat to the existing molds)

Three pack- Morphing Cobra Commander w/ Raodblock (Cobra Commander starting the transition half Cobra-half man, Walking Serpent (can they utilize Spiderman , Lizard sculpt?), Artic Roadblock with removable Snake Commander)

Giveaway (plus some extra for Club members please)- Golobulous Floating Base

Vehicle Modern Triple T (real Long shot w/ Sgt Slaughter trainer comes with Duffel bag)

Longer Shot "Artic Coyote" utilizing concept case Renegades Desert Coyote (allowing for a future renegades set) (no figure)

Reuse of the "Man Eating Plants" (Dr. Venom set and 12" AT club has the molds) and 25th Vines as the defensive plants near the beginning of the entrance to Cobra La w/ Artic Chuckles figure

Real ambitious- Repurpose Cobra Mountain Playset as MT Entrance to Cobra-La (Does that mold even still exist?)

As much as I like to see a Cobra La set I think the 2016 Convention set will focus on UK Action Force and the Red Shadows (we are getting 3 UK figures in the FSS 4).

Unfortunately, I think that aside from a Golobulous, Royal Guard, new Nemesis Enforcer, Snake CC, Jinx and Big Lob, it would be kind of bland with existing characters in cold weather gear. Dr. Mindbender looks great in his purple winter coat but all the other Joes and Cobras would be in white parkas.

rjhiii@sover.net
04-29-2015, 01:05 PM
Sunbow Cartoon colors, Quick Kick has a Black jacket with a throwing stars sash 1096,




Lady Jaye has a Brown jacket (good use for for the cancelled Artic Scarlet figure ) 1097,




Falcon has never been done in his brown/green Sunbow Camo 1098,


plus this is a way for some to get the SDCC Jinx and Zarana. A color changing Zandar and Zartan two pack would be awesome. 1095

and who would not want this Baroness, with the matching high collar artic coat?1099

kelty11@verizon.net
04-29-2015, 02:39 PM
I stand corrected! :) Truthfully, I haven't watched the '87 movie in quite a while. And how could I have forgotten Shipwreck's winter duds which he wore in that ridiculous Christmas episode (loved it as a kid, but now I'm not so so sure).

COOL!!

04-29-2015, 03:17 PM
Those character's in arctic gear would be excellent figures.

kaljzl0824@yahoo.com
04-29-2015, 04:14 PM
Honestly with the new tooling that Golobulus and the Royal Guards require, I think Golobulus using that Medusa tail from Boss fight would be perfect. So, Mabey I'd say the set would consist of Golobulus, Mabey a new Nemesis Inforcer, a couple Royal Guards, possibly the scientist Cobra Commander. Keep the figure count low as the bulk of cost can go to new tooling. If there is to be any Joes, make it a sunbow acurate Falcon. Just one Joe, kinda like that set that just had Flint. Vacation in the Shadows I believe.

jared.vitosh@gmail.com
04-29-2015, 08:58 PM
Sounds like a pretty good plan Windsor VT. I think the first Retaliation Roadblock would be perfect for Big Lob, the torso looks more like a basketball jersey. If I had a head to use I would have made a custom Big Lob already.

That sounds way more realistic and cost effective than a Cobra La set. Also, in regards to the BFS tail being used for Golobulus, I believe I have read on these boards that the BFS tail is not available to the club.

rjhiii@sover.net

I think the Internationals fit better with the two and three packs, FSS. I do not think there would be a lot of interest in general for a Con Set like that.

The only reason I think it might be Red Shadows is that most the UK characters can be made using existing pieces. While I think we will most certainly receive more arctic and Cobra-La themed figures, a whole set will be way too cost prohibitive. As stated above Golobulous' tail will need to be tooled and the Royal Guard would be a whole new tooling. Unless the club is willing to offer this for pre-order months in advance to all members (attending and non-attending). A pre-order might work because the club will able to realistically gauge people's interest in the set. If 3500 people pre-order the set, just produce 3500 + 500 extra for the convention itself. I work in Corporate Comms/Marketing and I know that larger orders will always bring down total costs (For example an order for event program booklets is always cheaper per item if the order is over 500 copies, as compared to 50-100 copies).

The Royal Guard can be done with little tooling. Roma Collectibles did one that looked great and I think the only thing that was cast was his head.

I would love a Red Shadows set. I'm sure the Club has the 2016 Con set planned out already but I'll do this for fun, at least the Red Shadows side.

Red Shadows vs Action Force

Red Shadows:
Baron Ironblood (new headsculpt and/or new helmet)
The Black Major (repaint Sgt. Major, or add a beret to Red Star)
Red Shadows x 3 (new headsculpt, pick a buck)
Red Laser (add an officer look to a Red Shadow)
Muton x 3 (new, weird headsculpt, get creative with the buck to cut cost)

Action Force:
Z Force Captain (repaint of Falcon?)
Z Force Sapper (repaint Shrage?)
You could add 4 more figure repaints with minimal tooling (sorry, not super familiar with all the different international figures)

As for the Con only exclusives:
Door prize could be the Scape Armor (repainted SNAKE Battle Armor)
Repaint the POC Hiss for Red Shadows
Repaint the Ninja CC in green Action Force
Maybe a Red Shadows version of the Cobra Deviant? Or repaint the Wolf

3 pack of figures could be some easy Q-Force repaints
2 pack of figures could be Red Shadows Red Jackal (Destro in disguise) and Dela Eden from Devil's Due (new headsculpt?)

That was hard and probably not worth typing but it's a set I'm hoping we can get soon.

rjhiii@sover.net
05-01-2015, 07:54 AM
The Red Shadows is also a good set idea, but Cobra La should come first. I think there would be more buzz and excitement from the base around it. That said, I also think the Pre-order idea (including exclusives) for attending and non-attending should be the way to go.

How very depressing!!:) 30 years. I first saw the movie in 1991. It would great if the club could execute a fantastic build-up to a Cobra-La set fro 2017 through FSS and membership figures (already happening).

I too would like to finally have a Cobra-La convention set over another remake like Red Shadows. I am at a point where I only buy club merchandise and some of the 50th anniversary stuff so getting a Cobra-La set would be awesome! The only issue I see is that most of the characters have already been offered in the new style of GI Joe. Pythona will be out on her own, Nemesis Enforcer was part of the comic pack, Golobulus is a complete new figure, Royal Guard will be mostly new tooling like others have said so what are you really left with??
I personally don't need more than 6 Royal Guards. We could release Jinx old uniform no mask, Big Lob. So that's what? four new figures? Then we will just be getting figures we already have like : Tunnelrat, Chuckles, Beach Head, Law, Falcon. Maybe if they created an Anti-Cobra-La Task Force with special uniform colors.
thoughts??

Predictions for 2013:
1. Red Shadows/ Action Force - 3 brits in FSS 4
2. Ninja Force/ Arashikage - Nunchuck and Billy in FSS 4
3. DEF/ Headhunters
4. Cobra-La (not a huge fan of the concept but modern figures would be great. However, I still think this will be for 2017).

jared.vitosh@gmail.com
06-01-2015, 10:23 AM
I know we are in the middle of FSS 4 reveals, but Arctic Mindbender still has me thinking about the convention set. There has been a lot of talk about a Cobra La set, but that might be too costly to produce and there are a lot of anti-Cobra La Joe fans, so what if they did a different type of arctic set?

The comic writers can create an all new scenario that involves an arctic battle between Joes and Cobras. Figures can be some classic arctic figures brought into the modern era plus some new arctic versions of core characters. Existing vehicle can be repainted in article colors. Here is one idea of what the set could look like but other figures/vehicles could be used, so let the club know what you think and who else you would send on an arctic mission.

Joes
Arctic Lady Jaye (as seen in the movie, new vest accessory to create the coat)
Arctic Gung Ho (can use the 50th Gung Ho head)
Blizzard (new helmet)
Snowstorm
Windchill
Iceberg v2 (with new 1986 style alternate head)

Cobras
Arctic Cobra Commander cancelled figure parts)
Arctic Baroness (yet the same vest/arms as Lady Jaye, just use Baroness head and legs)
Arctic Firefly (something like this http://oreobuildersblog.blogspot.com/2013/12/arctic-sideshow-firefly.html?m=0 )
Snow Serpent v2 x3 (new head and snowboard accessory)
Some other arctic viper or trooper x3 (the convention Saw Viper parts would work as an arctic figure if repainted)

Extras
HISS Scout/tread ripper in white as the small vehicle/freebie
POC/Retaliation HISS in white/gray arctic camo
ROC Ice Dagger in white/gray
Maybe a proper Snow Cat for Frostbite

Still probably a long shot

Yes, there are absolutely enough for a Renegades set.

1.Baroness ((w/ short Hair)
2. Destro (New Headsculpt)
3. Brian Bender
4.Scrap iron (lab coat)
5. Major Bludd (w/both eyes and arms)
6. Zartan (biker version)
7.Flint
8. lady Jaye(white t shirt)
9. Gen. Abernathy
10. Shipwreck (wool jacket)
11. Jinx(cloaking armor)
12. Heavy Duty
13-15. Joe troopers or Bio-vipers

You already mentioned Roadblock and the Coyote, so that's a given.

There has been a lot of talk about a Cobra La set, but that might be too costly to produce and there are a lot of anti-Cobra La Joe fans, so what if they did a different type of arctic set?

The comic writers can create an all new scenario that involves an arctic battle between Joes and Cobras. Figures can be some classic arctic figures brought into the modern era plus some new arctic versions of core characters. Existing vehicle can be repainted in article colors. Here is one idea of what the set could look like but other figures/vehicles could be used, so let the club know what you think and who else you would send on an arctic mission.

Joes
Arctic Lady Jaye (as seen in the movie, new vest accessory to create the coat)
Arctic Gung Ho (can use the 50th Gung Ho head)
Blizzard (new helmet)
Snowstorm
Windchill
Iceberg v2 (with new 1986 style alternate head)

Cobras
Arctic Cobra Commander cancelled figure parts)
Arctic Baroness (yet the same vest/arms as Lady Jaye, just use Baroness head and legs)
Arctic Firefly (something like this http://oreobuildersblog.blogspot.com/2013/12/arctic-sideshow-firefly.html?m=0 )
Snow Serpent v2 x3 (new head and snowboard accessory)
Some other arctic viper or trooper x3 (the convention Saw Viper parts would work as an arctic figure if repainted)

Extras
HISS Scout/tread ripper in white as the small vehicle/freebie
POC/Retaliation HISS in white/gray arctic camo
ROC Ice Dagger in white/gray
Maybe a proper Snow Cat for Frostbite

Love this idea! Great way to get the Snow Cat out to fans.

I would still like a M.A.S.K, but would like to see
Transformers/Gijoe that can be shared at both
Colton, Jane, roadblock, throwdown (Sean Collings): serpentor, red laser, black major, blue ninja and a transformer for box set

Rage tank, Transformer mid size and transformer mini size

Then a gijoe operation united freedom where they can be a un force themed set versus guerillas/pirates

Gijoe U.N
Colonel Courage, thunderwing, stretcher, scoop, big ben, tigor vs guerillas for box set

3 pack moondacer, dolphin, gaucho
2 pack red jackal, hunter

convoy truck blue
foe striker blue
snarler cycle guerillas
tank or jeep for guerillas
