yeah so in other words they really couldnt even answer a thing.

they couldnt just say the word yes to when it comes to the snake eyes question. i mean the answer DOES mean yes but they never just say the word.

we all know they have vehicles planned as well since the 2008 hasbro year has been posted. so they might as well pony up the info and just make it legit

They say that the black v.2 Snake Eyes will be available in Wave 4 of 2007 - but that wave is made up of the single packed figures from the five packs. Does anyone think that's a typo and actually means Wave 4 of 2008? Here's hoping, because I've haven't heard/seen anything remotely close to a black v.2 version of SE. And if they are doing it, I hope we can snag a few new weapons out of it.

That "life vest" figure is most likely a Lampreys. Who else is there with a life vest other than Cutter and the Lampreys???

It won't be Topside. Most likely someone from 82-87.

Alpine and Bazooka hinted as possible future release. No Jinx or Cover Girl planned. A new scarlet and lady jaye with new heads are planned.

Although much of what was said is shrouded in "let's save that for Toyfair" (completely understandable), there are still a few good nuggets in there. Most notably, a confirmation for Major Bludd and Wild Bill! Now if we can just get confirmation of Blowtorch and Mutt, I'll be good.

Oh, and Hasbro mentions WB and MB being included in Wave 3, 2008. Are we still counting Wave 5 as Wave 1, 2008, or are we considering Wave 5 just Wave 5? Just trying to get my bearings as to which wave is considered what.

If anyone's ordered a case from places like BBTS/EntEarth (or if any of the people who keep managing to buy whole CASES of the stuff in the stores :rolleyes: could tell us), I believe Hasbro labels their cases with print that tells you what they call the wave. I have a case of Alternator Skids that I got a while back during a clearance sale, and it's labeled "WV 3 06". I suspect the Joes cases are similarly labeled.

Wave 5 is Wave 1 of 08 I bet. :)

I didn't hear any mention of quick kick. I actually like quick kick, so i would be happy. I liked him better than all the later ninja crap. Like bushido, dojo and the rest of the clowns.

As far as Hasbro's concerned, each calendar year is a reset. 2008 Wave 1 is the fifth set of GIJoe figures in this line, but it is *not* Wave 5. This was easier to keep track of during the GVC era, when the new calendar year was accompanied by a change in theme (Thus GVC Wave 5 was actually Spy Troops Wave 1, but was also simply 2003 Wave 1).
