announces their 2006 3 3/4" exclusive figure sets!
The G.I. Joe Collectors' Club is pleased to offer the first of four quarterly 3 3/4” exclusives for 2006: Operation: Flaming M.O.T.H. The storyline is an homage to the cartoon episodes “Satellite Down” and “Revenge of Cobra”. It will have elements from both stories but will not follow the direct story line from either episode. In THIS story, COBRA has knocked the top-secret M.O.T.H. satellite out of orbit. This military satellite was a top-secret laser defense platform that had the potential to disrupt COBRA operations worldwide. Desiring this technology for themselves, COBRA was able to pull the not yet operational M.O.T.H. out of orbit. In order that no one get their hands on this new technology, the satellite was programmed to break into four primary components that would be spread around the globe should it depart from its orbital plane. Now the race is on. Who will get to the pieces first? Joe? Cobra? Only you will know.
Each of the four figure sets will have a story that takes place in a particular quadrant of the globe. The debut set (now available for preorder) is the Jungle Theatre set, which includes the following two figures: Jungle Night Viper and Jungle Frag Viper. Both characters will be new versions of these two favorite vintage figures. Each set will come with accessories, file cards and they come in a telescoping box like the G.I. Joe Convention sets, but these boxes will be 6” x 6”. Each box features an image of a video monitor with the four teams searching for the downed satellite. When all four boxes are placed together they depict one command console from which the search activities are being monitored from a central location. Nothing like this has ever been done as a G.I. Joe package and you will want to add all four sets to your collection to complete this great display piece!

Thanks to Alyosha for the heads up.
