G.I. Joe Concept Vault Figures on Display

GIJoeConcept-013
Hasbro was kind enough to drop a treat on the heads of fans at this weekend's Joecon 2012. On display are a ton of figures that were canceled, mocked up but never produced, prototyped, and more. Bottom line, none of this was produced, or is currently set for production.

But, we as fans can still wish! So, if you see something that's awesome, be vocal and let the designers know. That's the only way they'll know they are sitting on some plastic gold.

Some of the items shown include:
EDIT - All pics up, better round with better camera later today / this weekend!

If anyone's at the con and can get a 2-pack, 3-pack, or has an Oktober Snarler Cycle, I've got a buddy at the con with cash and I can have him buy the stuff from you. I can also split the cost to buy 1 or 2 Annihilators instead of all 3.

He also has these POC figures on hand to trade with you:

(4) Renegades Storm Shadow
(7) POC Low Light
(3) POC Hawk
(2) POC Snow Job
(4) POC Shadow Tracker
(12) POC Rock Viper
(1) POC Recondo - $15
(1) POC Shock Trooper
(6) POC Iron Grenadier
(5) POC Cobra Trooper
(4) POC Viper
(3) POC Sky Dive
(1) POC Cobra Commander

I am so ready to see the this stuff Gyre says will knock our socks off from hasbro!! Please let it be for release like in August !!

Does he have them on pegs inside a trenchcoat?
B and H Comics:
That retaliation trooper looks pretty sweet in black. With the arm pads that could become a decent looking Blackout.
Deefuzz:
I like the paratrooper figure quite a bit. Would definitely buy one if I was at the con.

See, now THIS is the kind of thing that would be considered scalping...

It's a repaint of a Retaliation toy.

Tucker:
I got one too! Anyone else catch one? And no, he doesn't have ankle articulation.

thanks captain obvious...I just wanted to ask cause those pics are highly misleading...the boots look different to me for some reason.
ChaplainAsst:
It's actually not bad considering they had to put this together pretty quickly. I wonder if the quality is Hasbro quality or if these were RIT dyed (nothing wrong with that). Not a bad surprise ... Now I wonder how much these will go for post-Con. I doubt as much as the PP Tele-Viper did last year.

No, it's considered trading. Let me know if you want to trade one of the 52 Oktober Guard boxed and loose sets you said you purchased at the con for something.

at least $150.00...thats the starting default point for all of these items so far lol...
Admiral Hunter:
Nope. They're all going on my shelf.

But let's discussing trading. What "value" would you apply to the Retaliation Storm Shadow? $10?

-Kevin
unseenforces:
I seriously want 4 of those harnesses/parachutes. Will these guys actually be obtainable?

Anyone want to sell just the harnesses/parachutes?
RolandofGilead:
Can't wait for some new toy news after all the con exclusive excitement from last night.


Still looking for the Ground Assault 2-pack. I will trade a Convention Voltar, or I've got money.
Tanksmasher:
I've been out of the loop. Are we supposed to see new figures at the con, excluding the exclusives we've just seen of course?

Unbelievably unlikely anything "new" we see will be coming before the re-release of the Retaliation stuff in January or February (or whenever they decide to do it).

Unless that one guy was right and there's other waves of product in the pipeline for the dollar store exclusive line.
Tanksmasher:
I couldn't care less about the DG stuff. Not one figure is worth the hunt.
tycondrius:
oh hellz yeah I want one of these guy but guess he'll be $350 to buy on ebay

He still looks like a step down from the 25th (or even ROC) ParaViper.

Not one...ALL are worth the hunt!
geekacres:
Soooo... any word from the con on what we may get from now till March ? Or just what the story is on the Dollar Gen figs ?

What can I say...they're shitty kitbashed repaints.
Lantern_Lad:
DAMN...

They really saved all the Joe awesomeness for the con this year. That para-drop figure kicks the ass of just about EVERY regular Retaliation figure.

*sigh*

Yeah so I'll trade you 2 of them for a Horror Show since you paid on average $20 each for the Oktober figs. 2-for-1 deal, you can't beat that.

Aren't most of Hasbro figures..."shitty kit-bashed repaints" to begin with?
JediJones:
My buddy told me he picked the exclusives I needed at the booth and that he got THE LAST DARKLON 2-PACK (to be mailed later). All I need now is the Snarler Cycle and the Paratrooper.

No, there are "shitty" kitbashed repaints and there are "awesome" kitbashed repaints. I prefer the awesome ones.
B and H Comics:
I love the "Duke" DG figure, I will hunt those down all day. I like them more than the Trooper figure. I am dissapointed that the Deep Six head does not fit on the DG Shipwreck, that was the only reason I bought that figure. I hope there are more DG waves planned!
JediJones:
He also told me they were kicking golden ticket guys or people with stamped badges out of line today. Not sure if he meant just guys looking for another Footloose or if they were stopping them from buying more of anything.
RolandofGilead:
What time's the first event for today?

They are limiting those that have already gone through and had their card punched. Kicking out no...asking yes.

The two packs are SOLD OUT

Filmfest and then magazine comic book panel

Cool, thank you.

It all sounds like so much fun. I wish the convention could make it's way out to Southern California just once.

That confirms what I heard from my buddy.

Are the Paratroopers for sale in the store yet? I know yesterday someone said they'd be there at 2 PM.

damn that sucks . well sorta it does prevent horders buyers I guess.
AirborneRigger:
For ppl that can't get the Paratroopers for a decent price, let me know and I'll grab the Retaliation Trooper and paint him all black and include the helmets! PM me!
CobraCrimson:
Actually, the stealth trooper looks much better with his helmet on. Not too bad now that I see him with his gear on.
JediJones:
Oh and believe it or not, as a late registrant my friend got the Red Shadows boxed set and they gave him the Red Shadows freebie vehicle. Who knew they still had those lying around?
marcusprime:
I really want Annihilator's. I might have to give up my MOC TTT Slaughter. PM if interested.
Gyre-Viper:
INCREDIBLE. The Hasbro Booth.
On. fucking. Fire.
RolandofGilead:
Don't tease. It's not nice.

If you can't take pictures, at least give us an idea of what you're looking at.
