There are some figures and exclusives that have become almost unobtainable. What is it for you, that you would like another chance at? For me, I'd like another chance at SGT. Slaughter and Rowdy Roddy Piper. A modern era Rowdy Piper and a Warthog APV driver of SGT. Slaughter would be a nice surprise.

For me and this is due to secondary market cost 2011 Mission Brazil II Con Set and the Modern Era Night Force Crazy Legs

I bought my niece and nephew both Slaughters for $50 each, which when buying for kids is really expensive. However, I set a goal of getting them every Joe that my sister and I had as kids, plus some as it has become a resurrected hobby for me. I am not buying as investments ( I am letting little kids have and play with them), but to see the enjoyment and love a new generation of fan gets from them. That is priceless... Best part, they treat their Joes (and Joe sized figures -MARVEL) the way they treat Uncle Rudy's and their Mom's childhood Joes. That is with extreme care- added bonus...

I want another shot at the Counter Culture Adventurer.

That figure has always looked so cool, I dressed as him for the 2013 Convention. (See my profile picture)

And since then, I have found that Dashikis are very comfortable to wear, and now I own two.

My list:
1. 2011 Brazil Mission set (currently on ebay for $1550!!! $800 or $900 I can understand but 1500)- The club should consider issuing an update.

3. 2011 Python Stinger and Motor- Viper
2. Annihilator 3- Pack
3. Darklon and Sgt. Mjr.
4. NF Crazy Legs

I really like the clubs Sparta and Freestyle figures. Rerelease Freestyle with a skyhawk, and Sparta with a Ram, and the club can have more of my money.

Another crack at the rise of cobra collection. When it first came out I ignored it and now that I look back there were some pretty cool figures and exclusives.

I didn't get into the modern era adventure team figures until after the adventure team commander was sold out. Now, I'm having a hard time finding the adventure team commander, at a decent price. That being said, it would be cool if they reused the same mold and made an African American version.

Yes. The 3 3/4 ones. It would also be cool if he came with a yellow Adventure Team version of the night landing raft.

I'd like a shot at the Brazil Mission Set,the Annhilator 3-pack, and the Darklon and Sergeant Major figures. I bought the Operation:Bear Trap Set and wish I knew about the rest of the Iron Grenadiers that came out at that time

I would like another chance at Big Boa. This time, in the form of Forca Fera team member, Kangor! Just paint the helmet black, sculpt a kangaroo, and done!

The club really needs to consider doing some sort of reissue of these figures. Mind you, not in the convention box, but maybe as a window box set. Afterall the 2011 convention was 4 years ago. These are all essential figures that are impossible to for most fans to obtain. One can't have a complete 1989 trooper collection without having to lay out $400 for the Annihilators.

That's a cool idea. Maybe the club could offer a Forca Fera boxed set that is not a convention exclusive.

I like the 7 pack idea like the Dreadnoks-Slaughter's Marauders, Cobra Island sets, Artic Desert cobra sets.

Annihilators and Darklon. I had a hard time accepting that these were only available at the Con. They are popular characters that many Joe fans want. I made a custom Darklon from the same recipe the Club used (all the parts cost me a total of $25) and I love him. Though I feel like he's still on fan's wishlist. I'm s.o.l with Annihilators.
The S.A.W Viper is too rad to be an exclusive, lol.
As for non exclusive items... Rock Vipers and Range Vipers.

Mission to Brazil II set...........maybe even a couple!!

Crimson Set from 2009.

What was Operation Bear Trap?

Operation Bear Trap was the 2012 October Guard vs Iron Grenadiers Set the Bear part was due to the Iron Grenadiers capturing General Iron Bear the CO for Colonel Brekhov and the other members of the October Guard.

The Club is giving you the second chance at some of these items right now...

Blades, The Topmac International Commando 3pack, 2009 Crimson Strike, and the 3 3/4 inch Adventure team sets

Oh and carded Footloose!

I tried to order the 2009 con items, but they were sold out. Here's hoping for some type of reissue in the future as I am not paying $700 for the international 3-pack on ebay.

I am hoping they find some extras of the 2011 Con set, the Annihilators and Darklon/ Sgt. Major.

This a great Idea. I would add '09 Blades with an SAF version of the FANG II if that mold is still available.
