ML Joes!

Okay. Here is a totally unlikely (infact impossible) hypothetical situation. No it will never happen but just play along.

 

In the not to distant future, Hasbro decides to launch a limited edition line of Joe figures that will be in perfect scale with it's Marvel Legends figures. They will be exactly like all your favorite custom ML Joes (Yes we all have different favorites but this is a fantasy so just envision what ever you think are the best). So in an effort Hasbro has sent it's executives out in to the net to choose one lucky board member to choose the characters for this new line of figures. And by what ever miricale of God, you were choosen as the lucky one that gets to choose which characters will be made. However this is a limited edition line of figures. Only one "wave" of these will ever be made.

 

Hasbro has told you that you get to choose 10 joe characters that will get made. THe 10 characters can be either Joe or Cobra. AND YOU CAN ONLY CHOOSE 10!!! No more, no Less. These will be the only Marvel Legends Style GI Joes that Hasbro ever makes.

 

Here's the catch. In order to choose these 10 figures, you must invest your life's savings. If you choose the line up well and these figures sell, you will become very wealthy. If you choose characters no one is interested in and no one wants to buy, you will become poor and homeless and will have to sell your body to drunk old business men just to stay alive!

 

So which 10 Joe characters would you imortalize in this line? Choose well!!

 

I'd go with:

Duke (Doc Variant - New head, new feet)

Flint

Scarlet

Lady Jay

Snake Eyes (Unmasked Variant)

Road Block

Cobra Commander

Storm Shadow (Unmasked Variant)

Baroness

Cobra Solider (Officer Variant)

I would go with

 

Flint

Scarlet

Lady Jay

Snake Eyes

Shipwreck

Cobra Commander

Storm Shadow

Destro

Baroness

Firefly

 

Just on personal preference

 

Mabey with a B.A.T. build a figure?

 

I would already sell my body to drunk old business men if they paid enough, but I bet I could get them to pay more for my wife. Too bad my daughter is only two.

Ah! Variants are cheating! But at least you guys are thinking out side the box. :) I personally wouldn't mind Variants but historically variants are either strait repaints or have one or two part remolded. So a Lady Jay variant would be pretty unrealistic (not that any of this thread is realistic) but you get what I mean.

 

Now i could see a cobra soilder with an officer variant or maybe a Baroness head on a Scarlet body (or Scarlet head on a Baroness body) as variants but making Hawk out of Duke would be unlikely

 

I think I would rethink my original set of 10 and swap out Destro for a cobra soldier. Army builders would totally sell.

Kinda funny everyone has included Snake Eyes, and just about everyone had Stormshadow...but hey...if you're going for bank, who wouldn't include them? @lol@

 

Off the top of my head:

 

Snake Eyes

Stormshadow

Duke

Shipwreck

Cobra Commander

Destro

Zartan

Viper (Original Flavor)

Sgt. Slaughter

Low-Light

 

Basically, I'd just go with characters that were very recognizable from the 'toons, or known sellers, with the one exception of my own favorite. :P
