JoeCon 2013 Night Boomer Glow In The Dark Box

JoeCon 2013 Night Boomer Glow In The Dark Box - GI Joe News

Awesome Box!
penntastic:
Holy what now!?!?! man I wish I lived back east and could go to Joe Con.
ero:
Awesome!

Who was it that was wanting an updated Boomer so badly? Shin-Densetsu? Shogi? So psyched for whoever it was.
MSU44:
Really cool box...too freaking bad this wasn't released at retail. No way I can afford to get one right now.

I so wanted a Night Boomer back in the day and never got one. Was hoping for it as a re-release.....looks like I am going to miss out again.
orezona:
Rad. I was wondering why they went with such a minimalist design on the packaging... Well done!

So it looks almost like the decals were screened right onto the jet? That's pretty sweet too.

Even more chagrined I'll never have one. *pout*
Shin-Gouki:
Have we confirmed the $150 (Ugh) price tag on these

Ah. You were right in the other Boomer thread, then.

The ebay prices are going to be crazy.
EdwinCSteen:
I need this next to my '89 Boomer. This Joe Con is killing me. So much cool Night Force stuff!
CrimsonGuard101:
Pretty cool, but not worth the prices these will go for and i bet that glow effect will die out pretty quickly as the paint/ink degrades, i hear the flowers on Chuckles shirt also glow in the dark lol
KINGOFNOD5:
cool use of the Skystriker mold.
nighthawk:
Nice, but I still hate how they did the 1-seater cockpit. Look at the pilot in there. You can barely see her as she's lying there.
Nekrosys:
Wow... already like 10 of these boomers are on ebay... loyal joes fans I guess...

That's not necessarily true, you know. It all depends upon the ink used in the manufacturing process. If it's a UV based ink, the phosphor (that glows) could last for years. Also limiting direct exposure to sunlight will help a lot.
Whargoul44:
Managed to snag one off EBay and didn't have to sell any organs to do so. If only Lady Jaye was the same.

Yeah, but do you really think they splurged on the good stuff? :0 I bet its the glow and the dark ink you can get cheap from walmart lol...and its too cool to lock away in a box somwhere in a damp dark closet to never see the light of day again to activate the coolness of its glowing at night :0

Night Force is definitely cool but I think a Sky Patrol set would be even better.

Except it would be the garbage ROC Mold
NeoDragonKnight:
I love the night boomer, but the price will be too high, I could probably buy 2-3 hot toys figures for what that will go on the secondary...

Oh damn you would be right sir you would be right haha i tried to forget the roc little bird...THANKS FOR REMINDING ME!! NOOT :(
Troops of Doom:
Glow in the dark stickers are kind of a cool gimmick but the orange missiles would have looked so much better in grey.

Yeah, as I was typing that reply I was thinking the same thing. Good phosphor based glo-in-the-dark inks are nearly $1/gram, in volume.

Sadly you may be correct but only time will tell. The box is super bitchin' though and I can guarantee it will only be a matter of time before we see "BOX ONLY" auctions on ebay...

Like anything that is exclusive, you pay for the exclusivity.
Sometimes out the nose.
Dragasses:
man.

I sure would like one of those.

...and you know my birthday is right around the corner. hint. hint.
03Mach1:
One seller on ebay has more than 10 Night Boomers available. Ugh. This feels like Botcon 2007 all over again.
Xerofall:
These are nice, but easily passed for me... however Night Force is a perfect example of what I think Convention Exclusives should be...
PrimeTarget:
Ok so they made 1000 of these. What are the attendance numbers to joecon anyway?

Still wonder how these are gotten. I looked at the joecon site and it looks like you had to preregister then you would be able to buy one.
godbomber:
I get why they chose the Boomer, but it feels wrong. This should've been a new vehicle, not a club exclusive of a store exclusive.

I was just thinking that Sky Patrol should be next years con set. Three of the four vehicles have already been made in the modern era.

With the popularity of the ME sets, the Club would be wise to get rid of the extra buying by golden ticket holders. Items like this will sell just fine.
Waxy:
I was really hoping this would have ended up as a TRU exclusive. I'd buy one on ebay, but I think I'll save my dough for FSS 2. Right now, I could have one for $250, but man that's a lot of scratch for something I could make with a can of Krylon to one of my boxed Skystrikers.
Colt Blue:
I got my Boomer at the Con tonight, very sweet Jet and I never had one before now. The glow in the dark box is a neat effect, do wonder how long it will last too. Also, the glow in the dark Night Force shirt I bought looks great as well.
DaveViper:
Congrats CB, where there still a good amout left? I got a guy trying to grab me one tomorrow?

Hard to tell, was still a pretty long line when I left the store.

Haha, yah I'm sure, and this year isn't even close to being over.

FSS 2, May figures. Aug releases, etc. SDCC!
dpstro:
I'm not into sub teams but this is nice but another pass for me. I had someone do a custom for me and have plenty more sky strikers if I ever want more.
Syn3sthesia:
Are these Vintage? Because the price is insane.

Excellent offering but the price will keep many from having these jets in their collections.

If you can afford the Golden Ticket and there are 3 items per every GT, that's how you get them. BUT... your gonna pay 300.00 for the GT and then after you figure airfare, hotel, gas, and food... he might just break even after he sells them. Trust me when I say this is not a GET RICH QUICK kinda thing.

It's not vintage it's a repaint of the XP-21F version from 2011.
03Mach1:
It's so nice to see members offering up their extra Night Boomers to fellow members at prices HIGHER than eBay. Special.
Mr Hebime:
What are they selling for at the con? $125? Considering I paid $240 for one on ebay this morning, that's not a bad markup.

Its $145 at the show. Not sure if they sold out yet, but seeing as everything else sold out by Friday night, I assume so.

I grabbed everything but that on Friday, but after reading Freestyle's file card, I now kinda wish I had the boomer to set up on the shelf behind her. :(

Is the boomer sold out, I wonder? If not, I may make a trip to the show again tomorrow to grab one for the display.

Ok, so a $95 mark up for an exclusive that I get delivered to my house without paying airline, hotel, convention tickets, etc. Still not a bad deal.

It sold out this morning.
Action Soldier:
I really like the Night Boomer but was never a fan of the orange. For $25 for a regular Skystriker at TRU and $5 for a can of satin black paint, I wouldn't mind making my own and sleeping just as well at night knowing it wasn't an official piece.
chuckles32:
Sell a Night Boomer at $240 on ebay, depending if you charge extra for shipping or not makes you about $50.

Nightboomer $145
Tax 7% makes total $155 and some change.
Shipping $15-$20 (plus need a big box and bubble wrap/peanuts if you have to get some)
Paypal fees, Ebay fees - $20 to $30

Let's say high end of scale cost with fees, shipping, etc $200. So if I gave free shipping, I make $40. Yay, I'm a big scalper and to echo a previous comment, no buying and selling them at that price is not a get rick quick scheme.
