G.I.Joe Hall Of Heroes: Top Ten to be Decided on by Fans!

If I picked five Joes and five Cobras I would pick Duke, Snake Eyes, Scarlett, Roadblock and Gung-Ho, I guess the first 5-pack.

 

For Cobra I would say Cobra Commander (Hooded), Destro, Baroness, Storm Shadow and Zartan (swamp).

 

I wish we knew what kind of deco they will have. Some might look really bad and some could be really good depending on how they are painted.

 

This is like ordering at a new restaurant that does not have a menu.

Sigh, so another Duke (7 or 8), another Scarlett (4), and a third Flint for this year, and then a WHOLE BUNCH of repaints for 09.

 

I wish that Hasbro would get it right and try to release more DIFFERENT characters (Zap, Short-fuze, Cover Girl, Airtght, Lifeline... you get the idea). Instead they keep rehashing the same characters, likely using the same molds with slightly different paint.

In less than a years time we are getting around 65-70 of the old figures made not counting repaints along with guys like Wraith and other DD charcters. Hasbro could just put out those 65-70 guys and not repaints but I doubt they would make up for it by making brand new sculpts and non repaints.

 

I look at the repaints as extra bonus items. You can get them if you want to enhance your collection or pass on them because they were not part of the old RAH line.

 

I think there have been plenty of new figures made. When have we ever gotten this many figures in such a short amount of time? There is no need to be greedy. It's not like there is a really short time frame to get everything done and they are missing it because of repaints.

 

I want all of those other guys too but I'm sure they will be made eventually. Some of you act like Hasbro should have 300 individually unique figures out right now. What is the rush? They can't make 25 years worth of figures in one years time.

I think the collector menatilty in general is to be perpetually disapointed.

I voted, but was wondering about the new ones and why the comic pack figures weren't included. Torch, Ripper and Wild Weasel and some of the best IMO!

All sound good to me and Wraith figure confirmed is killer! Bring them all on HASBRO. It is nice that we will see some familiars in the 2008 line. A nice way to keep the familiars in the line as well as focus on the movie characters when they come out too.

"like you’ve never seen them before – with unique deco and commemorative packaging!"

 

I'm guessing repainted with some sort of gold or other colored package and in those clamshell bubbles we saw Doc in.

 

 

 

EDIT: merged the two threads, I swear I looked... @hmmm@

I'm just gonna vote for army-builders, especially BATs and Vipers. If they're only slightly different (for example, cartoon style red faceplates for the BATs) they'll still fit in. Crimson or green Vipers would be fine too. Crimson Shadow Guards were also cool...

 

Seriously, I'm not wasting any votes on single characters, unless by then we haven't seen a V1 style Zartan or Serpentor, but I believe those are coming. We need pics...

Cobra Bazooka Trooper? Do they mean H.E.A.T. Vipers or that Cobra with the bazooka from the opening to the cartoon?

 

It COULD be Scrap Iron for all we know...

That is quite a possibility! Good thinking on your part - maybe it was too much for them to call him the COBRA Anit-Armor Specialist , or maybe it's an attempt to still give us something of a surprise when it's revealed. Either way, I hope you're right - Firefly needs his pal!

Ok I'm just going to throw this out there....this is really stupid. They are telling me to pick my all time favorite, but then they give me a list to pick from. If anything Hasbro needs to list every character ever represented in either toy, cartoon, or comic form, then say pick your top 5 from Cobra and top 5 from GIJOE. Then they need to keep it fair and not tamper with the votes, so old Snake Eyes, Cobra Commander, Storm Storm or Duke win. I guarantee Snake Eyes or Duke wont win. If SE did win it would be his v2 uniform cause everyone loves that one. But just imagine other joes or cobras that would make it....Kwinn in his classic outfit, Crimson Guardsmen Appel, Dr Venom, Billy, Shooter, the rest of the original 13, hell the October Guard. The possibilities are endless...but instead I have to choose Bazooka Cobra Trooper or Snake Eyes in evening wear. I think Hasbro dropped the ball on this one.

I don't believe it would be the H.E.A.T. viper, besides the "H.E.A.T." stands for High Explosive Anti-Tank Vipers.

 

It's probably a Cobra trooper with new accesories, just like the Cobra Airtrooper.

 

The Specialist Tracker , was an obious "choice", 'cause he is a.k.a. Action Man.

 

by the way, no NIGHT CREEPERS or ALLEY VIPERS, or maybe SCI-FI or LOWLIGHT?.......mmmm...jeeez.

So today is May 7th, the poll closes May 12th and we still have no idea of what almost 1/5 of them will look like.

 

I refuse to vote based solely on the ridiculousness of it.

Depends on how you look at it. First off, the poll said NOTHING of picking your all time favorites, just pick your favorite 25th figures. And second, I think we all should know by now that Hasbro will likely never confirm where certain characters stand in the polling, and what fans want and what works in retail are two vastly different things.

 

I'm firmly convinced that Hasbro basically has the assortment sketched out and are simply working in secondary figures based on the voting. But at the end of the day, "Hall of Heroes" will likely be nothing more than a collection of Hasbro's minor improvements and fan wanted changes all wrapped up in new packaging to ride the wave of movie hype. So I'm betting the following are all but assured spots, and keep in mind Hasbro still hasn't made any real confirmation on what Hall of Heroes might be, so we may well get more than 10 figures, but anyway, we'll all but certainly get...

Duke and/or Flint with corrected arms and crotch.

Snake Eyes v2 in all black (if we're lucky, new legs or a backpack for his sword)

Destro v1 with a chrome head

Cobra Trooper with red sigil

"original style" Cobra officer

 

But the important thing is....will fans buy Snake Eyes v2 again in all black? Probably. Will they buy Duke or Flint with superior arms? Probably. Will they buy Cobra Troopers with red sigil? In great numbers.
