Any chance we will see a Marvel Legends style Gi Joe line?


This was touched on a bit in this topic: http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/phpB ... sc&start=0

But it can't hurt to ask. :wink:

If you get another shot at asking Hasbro questions:

Will there be an opportunity to purchase army builder packs of the Cobra Trooper? I want, like, fifty of them, but I don't want to shell out the cash for that many five-packs.

Will we see new vehicles ie jets, cars, etc? The Thunderwing and Sky Sweeper were very well made, lots of detail. I was wondering if Hasbro would venture forth and do an AURORA ramjet stealth plane. I loved the concept planes like the x-30 and the Storm Eagle (f-23, needed to be bigger tho).

Thanks
Jon

Not a question, but a request. Make Dusty(with a real cloth towel), it would make my brother very happy.

I think one of the next single pack waves comes with single packed Cobra Trooper.

Based on the empty pegs in every retailer in my metro area, I don't foresee that being much of a solution. Besides, every photo I've seen thus far depicts that figure with what looks to be a white or silver Cobra sigil, rather than the red symbol a Cobra trooper should have. I'm hoping that's a mistake, but even if it is, and I get lucky enough to score a dozen or so carded singles, I'd still want to order five-packs or ten-packs if possible.

Also, JuliusMarx, if you get the chance... Now that we know Crimson Guard figures will be part of an upcoming wave, same question. Any chance of army builder packs? Thanks.

The silver symbol isn't a mistake. It's based on the Cobra trooper that was included with the styrofoam Cobra Viper glider that came out WAY back in 83. That was always my favorite Cobra trooper so I'm pretty happy about that.

I hadn't heard anything about that. He was named "Viper Pilot", though, so I'm not sure why they would release a "Cobra Trooper" based on that figure.

It's true, they intend to release all the variations under the "cobra trooper" name, even though they are the Viper pilot, Stinger Driver, etc. The red logo trooper will be coming out eventually.

Is there a site where all of this stuff is documented? Can I get a link? That would save me time in asking questions that have already been answered elsewhere.

Right here on AFI! :lol:

http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/phpB ... php?t=8301

It was mentioned at SDCC. Scroll down a bit, some info from the Joe Battlelines crew:

It was actually (John) Warden's idea to do the silver logo trooper because he liked the viper glider pilot.. & then the red logo's would be available in the 5-pack. When told that most fans would probably appreciate the red logo for the troopers, he said that he is a HUGE blueshirt/army builder fan & plans to basically have blueshirts available continuously.. similar to the SW clones/stormtroopers, etc. In other words, every year should see 1 or 2 new blueshirt release(s).

Thanks!

If he's an army builder fan, maybe we will see some multiples available in one pack. 8)

here's a couple:

Will the single carded Flint be re-released in other waves?

Will there be a single carded Baroness at all?
