Renegades question:

Are the Renegades artists working with Hasbro designers on the vehicles being used on the show? Were the Coyote, Destro's helicopter, Cobra's snowmobiles, Major Bludd's car, and Flint's vehicle collaborative efforts with toys in mind, or are they straight from the imaginations of the Renegades animation team?



Toy questions for the regular Q&A:

1) The 25th Anniversary Viper and Iron Grenadier heads fit perfectly on the Lady Jaye body from the 2009 JOE five-pack. Since a good squad could be produced with very little new tooling, is there even a slim chance we could see some female Cobra or Iron Grenadier army builders in the next year or so?

2) When you're trying to decide what characters to approach next, does the idea that some have never been produced as action figures ever come into play? Wraith and the Hard Master are great examples of seeing characters from the comics finally having their day in plastic, but others like Billy and Zanya are still noticeably absent. Is getting to them any kind of priority?

3) While some of us are big fans of the Night Raven and Dragonhawk XH1, others have lamented the smaller size of recent vehicles compared to releases from the '80s. For those collectors, are the days of larger toys like the original Night Raven, the Killer W.H.A.L.E., and the Tomahawk in the past, or does Hasbro have any BIG plans for JOE and Cobra?

Renegades questions:

Without giving specifics, how expansive will the Joe roster grow to be in the cartoon? Will it be massive like the 80's team? Or will it be a more of a small tactical squad?

Several people have mentioned, that the show has an "A-Team" (especially the intro) vibe to it. Was that intentional? Did you take cues from the A-Team show?

Toy line questions:

With Renegades in full swing and rumors of ROC 2 floating around, will G.I. Joe increase it's retail presence later in the year? Pursuit of Cobra and Rise of Cobra merchandise has all but disappeared from a great number of the Walmart and Toys R Us stores across the country. Target seems to be the only retailer waving the Joe banner. Well, besides the discount stores.

How much consideration is put into releasing vintage characters, who have yet to have a modern update, versus completely new characters?

Are there any characters that are off limits in the Joeverse (due to licensing issues etc), so collectors can stop asking about them?

Modern era Joe question:

Is there a price point (MSRP) that Hasbro wont exceed for vehicles/playsets on items designated for retail?

Any chance for Overkill or Scalpel to get the updated articulation treatment?
