It’s hard to believe this was the first San Diego Comic-Con 2011 exclusive The Blot blogged about way back in February of this year. And you know what? The SDCC 2011 exclusive G.I. Joe Starscream Sky Striker with a Cobra Commander action figure (in a flight suit naturally) and a Walther P38 pistol (a.k.a. G1 Megatron in gun mode) is STILL my favorite exclusive announced so far. It is just that freaking cool! Hasbro finally released some official photos of its 2011 Comic-Con exclusives and I just thought I’d share this picture, which includes the G.I. Joe vehicle’s packaging.
I’m not usually one who gets excited about a toy’s packaging, but even the box artwork is bananas! I love that Hasbro decided to go with a homage to the classic Marvel comic book mini-series G.I. Joe and the Transformers. I still have all four issues of that mini-series and it definitely fits this awesome action figure set.
The San Diego Comic-Con 2011 exclusive G.I. Joe Starscream Sky Striker with a Cobra Commander action figure will be available for purchase at the HasbroToyShop.com SDCC booth #3329. The price for this box set has yet to be announced. A limited number of these G.I. Joe x Transformers toys will be available on HasbroToyShop.com after the convention.
