The cat is finally out of the bag! The International G.I.Joe Convention website has been updated with a preview of the first figure from this year’s box set! You may recall that hints lead one to believe that this year’s box set would be based on Tiger Force…and that assumption was correct as the first figure shown is Wreckage! Staying true to his roots, Wreckage is a repaint of Firefly from the G.I.Joe Retaliation Invasion 3 Pack. Here are the details behind Wreckage from the JoeCon website –
TIGER FORCE DEMOLITIONS: WRECKAGE
– 25th Anniversary Modern Style/Fully Poseable Action Figure
– 1st Modern Era Release based on 1988 prototype**
– Includes Harness with two removable Explosive Devices,
G.I. Joe Logo Stand, Assault Rifle, Pistol, Knife,

(Note: Photo depicts mock up and final product may slightly differ.)
**A 1988 Hasbro Sales catalog showcased a re-deco of the 1984 Firefly action figure in Tiger Force colors.
It was later released in 2003 as part of a Toys “R” Us exclusive: Tiger Force five-pack and now this design is part of the 2015 GIJoeCon Box set!
