G.I. Joe Cobra Missile Command Headquarters
(Ages 5 years & up/Approx. Retail Price: $49.99/Available at Booth #3329 at Comic-Con International in San Diego)
Cobraaaa! One of the rarest of all G.I. Joe playsets is back! The G.I. Joe Cobra Missile Command Headquarters, this convention exclusive is a faithful reproduction of the original and iconic Cobra Missile Command Headquarters Set from 1982. It recreates the classic design of the original in exacting detail with a weathered finished, following the original die-lines with all new re-created graphics. Assemble the highly detailed, sturdy graphic board components to build a headquarters that includes missile base, missile support systems, cruise missile, control panel, movable elevator, work platform, and seats. The set also comes with reproductions of the three figures that came with the original set – Cobra Commander (with a logo that is an homage to the original, first version Cobra Commander logo), Cobra Officer, and Cobra Trooper. Set includes file cards for the figures, as well as a file card holder for the cards. The G.I. Joe Cobra Missile Command Headquarters will be for sale during San Diego Comic-Con 2017. Following the convention, a limited number will be available on HasbroToyShop.com.
I mean, just on the packaging alone this thing wins. Next to Star Wars vintage, GI Joe had the best action figure packaging of all-time (sorry, it's true He-Man fans), and it is recreated here in stunning fashion. The 3 3/4 inch figures included look great as well, love the Cobra logo on Commander. But weirdly to me the coolest part of the set is the Data Card holder, that is a crazy cool addition. Hopefully if you can't be at the show, you will have a shot at this on Hasbro Toy Shop (long shot that it can be), and I hope there is Joe news at SDCC coming. Toy aisles are always better with some Joe on the pegs.
