JoeCon 2010 free figure attendees “Para-Drop” Flint figure

Postby Draikar » 22 Apr 2010 23:53

JoeCon 2010 free figure attendees or one of is a “Para-Drop” orange Flint figure.

EDIT - This is a private parachute drop for school kids to help promote the convention locally, limited I guess..

Too bad he was not painted red with a red shadow head, billed as a Red Shadow Para-Drop figure... :-(

the idea of a stealth drop in orange wouldn't get you to far.

Unless it was at sunset, or sunrise perhaps? Or in Florida so they could merge in with the orange plantations?

I think it's well cool of Hasbro to do this - both the drop and the giving of one each to each attendee. Giving something back, and good marketing/publicity - more companies should do the same.

Although he does look like the 3 3/4 inch Face figure from the A Team range.

He looks like a prison breaker with that orange jumpsuit. Besides, why release the same guy who will be part of the convention set?

Ease of production I'd guess! Same moulds, just different colours, and 'when it's a freebie, folks shouldn't grumble' mentality!

I personally liek it! I want one to throw from the top floor of the house!

I vaguely recall some idiot doing that with a muton a while back, but I can't find the thread now!
The first ever para drop without a para!!
