Earlier today, during the G.I. Joe Collector's Club panel at this weekend's G.I. Joe Con in Springfield, Il, a new G.I. Joe and the Transformers exclusive crossover set was revealed. The new set is Old Snake from the G1 episode titled "Only Human". Old Snake is none other than Cobra Commander from the G.I. Joe series. Old Snake will come packaged with two B.A.T.s figures (which are recolored from Transformers Prime Deluxe Class Soundwave) as well as a pair of Energon Cubes. This is the second G.I. Joe / Transformers crossover set to be offered from the G.I. Joe and Transformers Collector's Clubs. The first set is the Marissa Faireborn and Afterbreaker set which might be available as early as BotCon in June.
Special thanks to Pete Sinclair from the Transformers Collector's Club for letting Seibertron.com have an exclusive preview of this exciting set. Make sure you check out Seibertron.com later this weekend for our full gallery of Old Snake and the B.A.T.s!

There's a certain blue bug that's very popular today! Thanks to the Botcon's Twitter, we have a much nicer shot of their upcoming Exclusive Chopshop repaint. As previously reported today, he will be an Attendee Exclusive and not a part of the box set and remains un-named. However, speculation is that he may be carrying the name of Vicegrip, who is another Botcon figure of old, and keeping with the theme set by the first figure revealed: Packrat. Keep scrolling to see the new clear shot, and stay tuned to Seibertron for all your transformers News!

Especially in combination with the BotCon set reveal! Coming at us via Weibo users Lost-Zzl and 宝哥我们被劫, take a look below at mirrored images of all but Krok and Car-Zap (which you can see here instead). Did you join this year? Are you excited for these?
