Brian Savage held his annual Collector's Club roundtable panel today. Here are a few highlights from what was announced. By request no images from this panel will be shown.
- The final wave of 3 3/4" DTC figures will be finally released through the Collector Club in the 3rd and 4th qrts. There will be two waves split into 4 figures each. No word on price for these yet. Here is what you can expect to get:
Outback (black shirt)
Cobra Officer (Now with silver Cobra Symbol)
Cobra Night Viper (Now with Night Viper Symbol on arm)
Munitia (Now with blue gun belt instead of purple and a black Cobra symbol on chest)
Python Patrol Copperhead (Repaint of the Club's regular Copperhead)
- Brian Savage would like to do a 3 3/4" line of Adventure Team members. We could see some vehicles for this line and a comic that sort of tells a story that connects 12" mythos with that of 3 3/4". Dr. Venom would be the character that would connect the two era's.
- For the 3 3/4" figures they would take the 12" heads and scan them down to 3 3/4" scale however they would likely not be flocked.
- The 12" Magnum Power figure is coming
- The Club plans to bring back the old "Lost Talker" series of G.I.Joe Action Marine figures. They will have the original voices but now include two additional phrases for each figure.
- Look for this year's 12" Club figure to be the Adventure Team Commander. The figure will come in just his underwear and a tee-shirt. You will need to buy an additional accessory pack to get his uniform and box.
- The 3 3/4" Club figure will be one of Destro's frogmen Undertow. The figure will fit in with the 2005 Con exclusive M.A.R.S. Invades box set
- When asked about the date for next year's con, Brian stated it was not set yet, but would likely take place right before the movie. The same goes for next year's Transformers Botcon and that both conventions would likely be about 6 weeks apart from one another.
