GI Joe Con 2016 "Eight Ropes of Danger/Dive into Darkness"

I purchased this set, believing that the 2016 GI Joe Convention was going to be the last one. After I bought it, I found out that the GIJCC got a two year extension.

I also purchased this set, because it contained the one figure I thought I'd never get, an "Adventures of GI Joe Aquanaut." Who is super cool. I've taken to calling him Ishmael.

It is now one of the crown jewels in my collection, because it's super cool.

It should say "Perilous" above that "Rescue."

Nice set, and cool idea, but I've got to say I'm a bit surprised at how non-metallic the dive helmets look. The original Deep Sea diver and even the Eight Ropes of Danger AT sets, heck even the Wal-Mart re-release all look much more gold and much less plasticy. The preview pics for the dive to darkness also looked like it would be more silver then gray, but looks gray and plastic as well.
Glad you like the set, but I'd have been disappointed if I had sprung for one. Are the Dive shoes and belt weights metal or plastic?

Metal. Not lead like in the good ol'e days though. ;)

And if you're talking about a Timeless Collection set looking like metal, one of them was.
