Would it not be Junkyard, rather than Mutt?

 

And did not the last version of Deep-Six not come with a porpoise ( or killer whale, depending on the version?)

They were limiting it to the 80s, so the porpoise doesn't come into play. The Mutt/Junkyard thing is a good catch.

 

A. duke

Wrong answer my friend, try again.

A. The first mail-away was Cobra Commander, followed by Major Bludd, then Duke.

 

A. Superhero, of course!

A. I'm guessing Hawk.

Actually, a quick check says the "gay character" question MIGHT not be valid, given the "80's figures-only" request.

 

But to answer the question, YES it is apparently true that, accordingly to one of the trading card sets for the 30th Anniversary, that Hasbro did have plans for a gay character on the JOE team. Obviously, those ideas never got any further than the idea stage. The claim is made on a card, where in there is a somewhat space=age looking armoured male smoking a cigar. Now, what the design suggests that character is gay is anyone's guess, but the "evidence" is there.........assuming its accurate.

What Hasbro-sanctioned product would that have been slipped out on? @hmmm@

 

It's not that I doubt you, but I'm wondering if we can get more details beyond 'one of the trading card sets', maybe a scan, etc?

 

There's a serious undercurrent of PC running in GI Joe, and I'm just not seeing this as being something other than a lunchroom joke. It seems much too controversial for them to have ever, even for a moment, seriously considered it.

To the best of my recollection, that is what the text on the card read. I have that card series in a binder, but its stashed somewhere after a move a couple of months ago, and I have no idea which box or bin it is in.....it'd take some time to find it so........

I thought this was about the toys, not the comics. But i'll answer...Lawrence Flagg?

 

its the comics too, and thats the wrong answer ,its General Austin, flagg had been killed by bludd already, issue #45, In the US Army Medical Center in Washington DC, General Austin is briefing Colonel Hawk on the information about Cobra Island. He gets the President of the US, as well as the Joint Chiefs chairman to confirm that Colonel Hawk is promoted to Brigadier General and commander in chief of the GI Joe team. General Austin is retiring. Hawk receives his stars.

Edward W. Leialoha is code named 'Torpedo'

 

 

As for the whole 'gay' character question........the point is moot. As they say, "Don't ask, Don't tell"

 

'Nuff Said!

 

 

 

Q: Which character's MOS clearly stated COMMANDO and was all but overlooked in favor of 'something more spectacular'??

 

*yeah, I know its a 'gimme', but what the hell?*

Actually, only Sabertooth counts. Wild Bill and Ripcord weren't new characters.
