I'm still trying to get info on this (not sure what it is). Although it may be a SDCC exclusive.

that's interesting, but I think that's probably a good move , all things considered

any other cool info from the round table?

whats the talk on the floor about this years stuff, people like it? has it sold out?

anything new with the club?

he Cobra Manta Squad that was announced as a potential product last year? As you might already know, I'm solely a 3.75" O-ring collector and I'm really interested in this product reaching us. If you don't have information now, will there be information at the Con?

Thanks!

Here's the text from the original .ppt slide shown at last year's con.

Cobra: M.A.N.T.A. Squad (O-Ring Tools)
4 figures divided into 2 sets on vintage style cards.

M.A.N.T.A.
(Marine and Naval Tactical Assault) Squad

This is Cobra's answer to the G.I. Joe team's elite Navy S.E.A.L.S. The Cobra Diver Commander is ready to unleash his genetically enhanced aquatic specialists to match everything the G.I. Joe team has to offer. It will be an epic head-to-head match up on [...> below the World's oceans.

Set 1 LE 1,200 COBRA DIVER COMMANDER & DEMOLITIONS EXPERT

Set 2 LE 1,200 HYDRO-VIPER re-deco (two-pack/troop builder) - BOTH figures same deco


the MANTA figures are on the schedule and will follow the 3 3/4" AT figures later this year.

found it on the clubs forums

I'm still going thru everything Mike and Josh sent me, (I'm not there, but several of my club's members went) I've been on the phone off and on all day with them, as well as constant updates from their laptops. I'll prob talk to MR. Ron Rudat later about his new toyline, (he's a friend on my page, and we talk from time to time). I'm already working on another Template for an all new playset (this one will be bigger)! As it's pieces are from the Warren TF Command Center. *More details on that another time* But There's a lot of pics for me to go thru. and the Guys are due to call me at 9:00 P.M. (Central time here stateside). So I'll talk to you all later.

Nice but being club exclusives they will probably be $40-$50 each, easy pass.
