I've been looking through my collection and online and got to thinking about figures I would still like to have but haven't got in the Modern figure format (ie 25th on forward). But before I see what others think, I have one rule for others to follow: The character cannot have been made in the modern era, so if the CLub offered it as an exclusive or Hasbro did, then it still counts as having got a figure.

The big one for me is the Hydro Viper. I just really loved that figure as a child. I always had a special place for the underwater Joes and Cobra's, but that one just stood out. The mask/helmet was so cool looking, not to mention the webbed hand and flippers. The fact that he was somewhat monsterous looking made hime cool and I loved the file card.

I would have a hard time choosing just one, because I was always hoping Hasbro would do a modern Night Force in the 30th Anniversary style. It would have to be one of them. I always liked how the Night Force versions of some characters, like Psyche Out and Sneak Peek, had more toned-down, more traditional military colors, as opposed to their brighter original ones. I only owned one Night Force figure back in the day, and it was Crazy Legs, and even he was second-hand. Geeze I wanted them so badly...

Just one, eh??

I would love to see the other 2 Vipers from the 1989 year re-done!!! That was a good year for Cobra!! H.E.A.T Viper and Frag Viper!!! Both very cool and unique Cobra troops that deservedly need an update!!!

I mean come on, a huge missle launcher, bright colors on the H.E.A.T Viper, and wicked cool Jai-Alai cesta type launcher on the Frag Viper!! I mean the ingenuity of Hasnro designers back then think of that, is nothing short of awesome!!! They could of just used a standard grenade launcher, no they went the extra mile!!

Man, it's tough to think of just one, but I'd have to go with Salvo. He was always a favorite of mine. A close runner-up would Metal-Head.

This might sound strange but I'd really like to get an updated Raptor.

I'm liking everybody's picks so far, but my oddball #1 choice would be an update of The Fridge mail-in from way back when.

I am sure I'll be the only one who likes that idea :D

no no, I was thinking the Fridge too just for the fun of nostalgia, one of my friends had him way back when. I was so jealous, he was the friend that always had the extras, like Sgt Slaughter. They redid the Steel Brigade which I totally dig, I have a small squad of SB's they just need Fridge to lead the crew w/his giant iron football mace......

Lightfoot or Spearhead. They don't need to be exact copies of the originals either.

Oh yeah, he needs that awesome football mace for sure, glad to see I'm not the only one who wants The Fridge.

This is tough cause so many of my wants have been done but done poorly by the club or Hasbro (Gung-ho, cutter, barrel roll etc.) and others that I want remade i have made customs off.

I'm going to go with Dodger, as i think he could be made to fit right in with POC type figs.

Hey guys! I really liked the character design that ddp did and would like to see their (modernish) variations of Zandar, Serpentor, Zartan (a full chameleon would be nice as a bonus) and storm shadow. I agree about golobulous and metal-head. as far as updates I would like to see croc master II from VVV to 25th. For vehicles and drivers I love the SHARC and Deep Six, I would love to see a revamped version or bigger more accurate version. I think an out of that giant suit version of deep six would be cool too. maybe a more poseable suit and something you could open like a mech suit. sorry i am not on more
