Hasbro's 6th G.I. JOE Q&A: The Answers!|
As part of Hasbro's bi-monthly Q&A session, Cool Toy Review passed on 5 of your burning questions and now we've got the answers for you.
Cool Toy Review: Since you went back and re-painted the Snake Eyes 25th v1 figure all-black for Wave 5 (a much welcomed update to an already awesome figure!), is there a chance that you may do that for the Snake Eyes 25th v2 w/Timber? I know I'd love to see that one also painted the more accurate black, rather than the dark gray of the original Wave 1 release...and please make it the black wolf variant, since that is next to imposible to find.
Hasbro: Right now there are no plans for this, but we are looking into it for the future. Usually we are hearing from fans that they have enough Snake Eyes. We may release some more black wolves in the future.
Cool Toy Review: Seeing that clear figures seem to be popular with collectors, and that Zartan is one of the coolest characters in the GI JOE universe, what are the chances of seeing a single carded, clear (stealth) Zartan figure beeing released. Maybe with some attention to his eyes (at least that you could see them), his bow, a sword (he did help Snake Eyes build his first sword!), and maybe a small hand pistol. This could also be another opportunity to make a chase figure with this one also. Maybe a grey "smoke" version? So, what do think?!
Hasbro: Sounds like a really cool idea, we will kick it over to the design team.
Cool Toy Review: Will you be carrying over lessons learned from feedback received from the 25th line into the movie line, i.e. better articulation for action poses, stronger hands, etc.? Speaking of the 25th Anniversary line, will some version of the 25th line run concurrently with the movie line? We'd hate to see the "classic" character releases come to a complete halt while popularity momentum continues to build.
Hasbro: The movie line will feature a blend of movie and classic characters and is being led by the same team which brought you 25th anniversary. This line will delight both collectors and kids!
Cool Toy Review: Here's a few of the most frequently asked after figures...any chance we will see them in the 25th ANniversary line? Wet Suit, Thrasher, Zarana, Blowtorch, Mutt & Junkyard?
Hasbro: Two out of five isn't bad.
Cool Toy Review: Since the new Joe line seems to be so popular now, is there a chance we can get the Q&A to be monthly anytime soon?
Hasbro: The plans are set for 2008, maybe in 2009.
