The first figure for the 2017 JoeCon boxset exclusive was revealed today. The set will be Battle Force 2000
themed. Here is the backstory for the set described by the Collector Club:
The G.I. JOE BF 2000 team is the walking, breathing proving grounds for tomorrow's battlefield technology today! These highly trained specialists are entrusted with one-of-a-kind, state-of-the-art prototype weapons. Their mission is to field-test experimental equipment under battlefield conditions.
COBRA has developed a new laser weapon system so dangerous that it threatens the safety of the entire planet! The G.I. JOE: BF 2000 team is called into action and must travel through the Pacific Northwest into British Columbia to dismantle the operation. What they don't know is that COBRA is ready for them with a battalion of their upgraded B.A.T. (Battle Android Troopers) guarding their base. This G.I. JOE team will be fighting against insurmountable odds, and must pull their individual specialties together to battle these deadly threats. Will the cold and calculated programming of the COBRA B.A.T. SQUAD LEADER be the end of this G.I. JOE team?
The first figure revealed for the set is the Battle Force 2000 Squad Leader Maverick
