Sometimes work on the HissTank can get a little chaotic and certain things slip by. That’s the case with Spirit from the GI Joe Collector’s Club JoeCon 2018 Exclusive.
Featuring a new head and the return of Freedom, his eagle sidekick that hasn’t been seen since his initial 25th offering, and sporting his Slaughter’s Marauders color scheme. What do you think?
Thanks to Hisstank member GIJoeComics08 for letting us know what the theme for the 2018 JoeCon is…
Marauders to the Rescue!
GIJoeCon 3 3/4” Figure Set
The COBRA PYTHON PATROL is an elite unit of troopers
that have been handpicked for their various tactical specialties.
They are expertly trained and equipped for stealth and infiltration
missions. They wear unique camouflage grid uniforms to mask
their presence, which confuses radar detection systems and allows
them to accomplish sinister operations around the globe.
Using the latest radar absorbing materials and stealth technology,
PYTHON PATROL 2.0 rears its ugly head with a surgical
strike against their sworn enemy. Led by the nefarious MAJOR
BLUDD, they have successfully captured a “Real American Hero”
and key member of the G.I. JOE team.
The SLAUGHTER’S MARAUDERS unit is called into action
to mount a dire rescue mission of their original commander.
A fellow Marine Drill Instructor, SGT. SMASHER takes the
squad leader position and selects highly specialized soldiers for
a fast attack, ground assault into enemy territory to combat these
devious COBRA forces.
PYTHON PATROL 2.0 is a dangerous unit, but it will take more
than their special uniforms and slithering nastiness to get the best
of the entire SLAUGHTER’S MARAUDERS team!
Our 2018 exclusive 3 3/4-inch
convention set contains a highly
requested G.I. JOE team and updated
COBRA army that are available for the
first time in the modern era 25A action
figure style. This special edition 15
action-figure set includes:
Five G.I. JOE team members: Sgt.
Smasher, Footloose, Hardball, Mutt
& Junkyard (K-9), Spirit & Freedom
Ten COBRA team members: Major Bludd, Python H.E.A.T. Viper
(troop builder x 3), Python Lamprey (troop builder x 3), Python
Laser Viper (troop builder x 3).
Each of these great teams comes with their classic weapons,
accessories, figure stands and file cards!
A Native American mystic warrior with a degree in psychology. Spirit Iron Knife is also the best wilderness tracker on the G.I. Joe team. He can move with complete silence and analyze and anticipate an enemy’s behavior and actions. When he picks up the trail of Cobra ninja Storm Shadow during a stealth mission, he launches into a battle of both physical and mental agility to overpower and outwit a deadly enemy!

Yo joe! It’s been a while since we’ve had any GI Joe toys to hunt for at retail but that’s about to change! Joebros has spotted the 2015 GI Joe 50th Anniversary sets at a Toys R Us in Los Angeles, California. More info:
Found the 2-packs ($12.99), Silent Strike ($59.99) and Desert Dual ($49.99) in CA. The store I found them at only received ONE case of each. The 2-packs are 8 to a case (2 of each, except Gung-Ho/Shadow Guard and Blowtorch/Croc Master are 1 per), Silent Strike is 2 per and Desert Dual is 3 per
There’s also been recent sightings in Texas, so hopefully it won’t be too much longer before these arrive at all Toys R Us stores. Happy hunting!
EDIT: It turns out Ramielschild made the 1st sighting in Texas. Have you found these new Joes yet? Post your sightings in our GI Joe sightings forums! Like to snap photos of your Joes? Post your GI Joe 50th Anniversary 2015 photos here!
