Doc Evil has some good points , and so do some other people about questions to ask at the 3 3'4 round table, what are some other questions or concerns me or someone else that is going could ask , cause only one person can ask one question, then they move on, i cant ask them all. So who all is going, so this is a double thread, to see who all is going, and what type of questions you would like us to ask on your behalf.

Are you going? If it is only one question...hmm. Tough one. Here's a list.

 

What is the progress of finding the other RAH molds around the world?

 

It is known that Brazil had some of the molds and the company that was aking them went out of bussiness. Do you have any guesses on what happened to those molds ie: some employees knew what they had and sold them.

 

Did China have some of those older fig molds like v1 Bludd or v1 Stalker?

 

How often can we expect to see RAH re-issues?

 

Have you tried a poll of kids who already play with GI Joe and see which style they like best?

 

More people want just basic Cobra Troops, do you have anything to use to Frankenstein one?

 

Why do you ignore me?

 

Why can't I get a date for prom @-@

Questions to ask?

 

 

*Will Hasbro ever consider doing what Mattel did with simply replacing lost molds to old figures? ALL molds will wear down and have a finite amount of time they can be used anyway, so why not accept replacing the fan (read as customer) favorites anyway? Or do they simply plan on having many key toys from their biggest classic lines slip away into obscurity someday since they're taking no efforts to preserve them by maintaining new molds?

 

 

*Will Hasbro consider the return of different plastics like color-changing plastic? Sure no one uses it now, which'll make it costly, but then again, no one else was using it in 1984 when Zartan was released. Why not be as willing to pioneer and stand out as they used to be in the 1980's? What makes the new stuff so different from the old stuff is that the old stuff had balls as Hasbro wasn't afraid to try new things like 2-foot-tall Transformers and 7-foot aircraft carriers, while the modern Hasbro is ball-less and too often is only willing to "play it safe" with what they're willing to release.

 

 

*What's the phone # of that girl who played Baroness at last year's con?

Yes i am going

 

What is the progress of finding the other RAH molds around the world?

 

I'll find out, i know someone will ask this, last year I was told that they are doing everything they can to get the more popular characters back, and the more popular vehicles, ie.. they got the skystriker back from funskool

 

 

It is known that Brazil had some of the molds and the company that was aking them went out of bussiness. Do you have any guesses on what happened to those molds ie: some employees knew what they had and sold them.

 

When asked about this at the last convention, DDD said that they are trying their best to get all the molds from down there, but most if not all down there, are lost/gone, or in other words, very doubtful you'll see them

 

 

Did China have some of those older fig molds like v1 Bludd or v1 Stalker?

 

That i will ask, or get someone else to ask,

 

 

How often can we expect to see RAH re-issues?

 

This will get covered, i know lol, the last convention DDD said probally 2-3 Figure reissue , ie Bat Pack, Python Patrol, and Tiger Force this year

 

Have you tried a poll of kids who already play with GI Joe and see which style they like best?

 

Do you mean between the RAH and JvsG lines, or the 3 3'4 line vs the 12 inch line, cause i think its pretty even, thats what we were told

 

More people want just basic Cobra Troops, do you have anything to use to Frankenstein one?

 

when asked about this last year, DDD said the neo -vipers were now the new standard troops. Maybe it'll change, but i am sure this will be brought up again.

 

Why do you ignore me?

 

Um didnt know i did, and if you mean hasbro, i dont know lol

 

Why can't I get a date for prom  @-@

 

You arent asking the right girl, lower standards lol, wait hire a hooker or escort, and u'll be the man lol

I canceled my trip to San Fran and the convention for financial reasons. I hope that someone might be able to ask about:

 

"Whats the status of the "Flagg points" and if they will have any available mailorder items in the near future, if yes, then what can we expect"

 

Thanks

Pass that number to me when you are done.

 

Seriously she looks exactly like a girl I went to high school and junior high with, named Clarissa. I just want to find out if she is the same one.

Have fun at the convention Ska!Give us a full report and maybe some photos when you get back!Especially if they show some of the upcoming Wave 8 figures for GvC!I'd love to see the new Cobra Commander, hopefully with his faceplate.

 

If the convention ever comes to the east coast,I'd LOVE to go.

Actually, you won't believe the number of guys doing that at my school. Heck some of the girls here are like that. Me, I have too much self-esteem. I'm actually going to go with a friend. She and I have known each other for a while now.

 

 

Okay, back to the topic. I got another question: with Wal Mart now picking up a few RAH exclusives, does this give you any incentive to try and expand upon the release of RAH?

 

How muh did you ake with the sale of RAH exlcusives between 2002 and now?

glad you are going clam , unless they lost your confirmation

 

lost my confirmation? whats that mean?

 

i mean like u got deleted from here, that they would lose your confirmation at the hotel, or if u ordered a convention set, that they lost that lol i was picking on you dude @-@

i'll definitly take pics and give u guys daily updates, but i am sure every website will be doing that too lol, i hope he has the faceplate too, did you go to last years in Norfolk, VA

"flagg points" do you mean the battle points, and i know someone will ask about this, and when we can use them, last year DDD said they will be in packages, in case they want to do something with them

 

 

Asl them that all the Gi Joe fans want a new mercer and to start making a new one!

 

Ok will do man, i'd love to see a mercer figure,

 

Also, If they are gonna make single packs?

 

they said no at last years convention because of TRU, wal-mart, and Target, cause they didnt want single packs but that might change, i am sure someone will ask this though,

 

Actually, you won't believe the number of guys doing that at my school. Heck some of the girls here are like that. Me, I have too much self-esteem. I'm actually going to go with a friend. She and I have known each other for a while now.

 

thats awesome sometimes friends help out a lot, and i'd rather go with some friends,

 

Okay, back to the topic. I got another question: with Wal Mart now picking up a few RAH exclusives, does this give you any incentive to try and expand upon the release of RAH?

 

Definitly will ask this or hope someone else does, i hope they do rerelease all Rah that they get their hands on, even battle corps can be salvagable if given the right paint scheme

 

How muh did you ake with the sale of RAH exlcusives between 2002 and now?

 

AKE?? oh you mean make, i am sure they wont tell us this, maybe if reworded they will, like do sells of Rah figures make for more releases or something

 

I live in SF and plan on going, BUT due to financial problems, I probally won't be able to make it! First I miss Wondercon (last weekend) and now GIJOE. :( wahh!

 

well if you dont have the money for the set, u do know on Sat, at 10 am they will open the door to the public, its like 15 bucks man

Another question: Based on the success of the Star Wars Accessory Packs, would you consider doing a Cobra Acessory pack like with the Viper, or other classic Cobra Troops?
