As far as Hasbro (and most fans) care, haven't some of those been done? Dusty and Gung-Ho, for example, would be the exact figures we already have (Dusty even came in a cartoon-themed set). And 'cartoon versions' aren't necessary for everyone. Cartoon figures of Airtight, Monkeywrench, Footloose, or Recondo would be almost (if not exactly) the same as a non-cartoon version. Not to blow your list completely out of the water, but aside from the mustache, what would you change on Bazooka? For the luvva Mike, just take a Sharpie to him already.

 

I don't mean to jump all over you, so if you feel that I'm being rude, I apologize. Maybe it's just me, but when I hear the question of who should be made from the cartoon, I think of characters who had very different appearances in the cartoon (Flint, Lady Jaye), or wore specific outfits in an episode or two (Dusty in Cobra uniform from The Traitor, the Dreadnoks from Cold Slither), or who were only in the cartoon (Sparks, Gamesmaster).

 

So my top three, in the order I want them...

 

Flint in 'cartoon colors'

Hector Ramirez (from Twenty Questions, Not a Ghost of a Chance, and several others)

Fatal Fluffies (from The Pyramid of Darkness)

 

Some others to add to the list. It should be noted that I'm leaning toward 'combatants' here, as most of the random one-episode civilians would make for really lame figures:

 

Mara (from Memories of Mara)

Dusty in Cobra uniform (from The Traitor

Dreadnoks in "Cold Slither" disguises (from Cold Slither)... this one's a five-pack just WAITING to be made!

Gamesmaster (from The Gamesmaster)

Sparks (from Cobra Stops the World)

Old Snake (from the Transformers episode Only Human)

Dr. Lucifer (from Cobra's Creatures)

Cobra Commander in parka (from GI Joe the Movie)

Cobra Commander in his ridiculous cape and scepter (also from the movie)

Cobra Animal Men (from Iceberg Goes South)

The Phantom Brigade (from the episode of the same name)

Airborne in "cartoon colors"

Big Lob (from the movie, of course)

Pythona (the movie again)

Female Cobra and Joe troopers (from Spell of the Siren, among others)

Jabal (from Hearts and Cannons)

Lt. Claymore (Cobra Officer) (from The Traitor) -actually, this one's really just a simple head-swap custom... hmm.

Mr. C (from The Wrong Stuff)

Zartan in alien disguise (from The Invaders)

Wong of the Oktober Guard (also from that ep)

Baroness in Covert of the Town disguise (from Skeletons in the Closet)

Destro in ceremonial garb (from the same ep)

The monstrous first try at Serpentor (from Arise, Serpentor, Arise!)

Admiral Latimer in Cobra uniform (from Sink the Montana) -and a possible repaint into Black Major?

The Mini-Joes (from Once Upon a Joe)

Matthew Burke (from The Spy Who Rooked Me)

Raven the Strato-Viper (from In the Presence of Mine Enemies)

 

And even though you didn't ask, but because I like some of the DiC stuff, a few from there for people to have fun with:

 

"Snake-Man" Cobra Commander (from Operation Dragonfire)

Serpent Man (from Injustice and the Cobra Way)

Lady Jaye (DiC-style blue uniform)

Mangler (from The Mind Mangler)

Evy the Range Viper (from I Found You... Evy)

Night Creeper Leader (DiC style; NC body with hooded head)

Crimson Guardsman #1 (from The Greatest Evil)

I wouldn't mind a Buzzer with his leg armour stuff, kinda like in the avatar pic I am sporting.

 

Then again, Buzzer rocks, so many NEW versions are possible, I guess. I'd buy 'em. I'm sure some of you would too.

 

Buzzer > all other Dreadnoks > GI Joe

 

Talking about Dreadnoks, I'm waiting for Hasbro to make Road Pig and also Big Boa with maybe a set based on the episode the viper is comming with the gym set a Cobra personnel on it.

How about that trucker chick from Revenge of COBRA?

Eh... I'd prefer to get more in the way of the soldiers and other 'combatants' than civilians and supporting characters. Being a one-shot character who got into a fight with a couple Cobras doesn't qualify her for a figure, IMO. If it does, then there's literally a thousand others who are similarly qualified, and I'd rather fill out my ranks of Joes and Cobras than get enough civilians to populate a small town.

Um... do we really NEED Cobra Troopers in short shorts? Really? @loll@

I would kill for a Colonel Sharp figure!! Add Sparks to the list!!

 

As for Honda Lou West, she could become a driver of a new vehicle I always thought it was a shame they never used her, since she had her own trucking company!!! Yes, I know everything there is from that cartoon!!!

Bazooka has tan pants & helmet in the cartoon instead of olive green.

That is a nice list. There were 2 versions of Airborne. The one that resembles the figure out now is the one I like.

Dusty looks nothing like the cartoon version. Add Serpentor to that too.

I can't believe you forgot Cobra Shock troops, Satin, Col. Slash, & his henchman from the Pyramids of Darkness. satinthugspw7.th.jpg shocktroops2zb9.th.jpg

I've always wanted a cartoon Ace. aceuj2.th.jpg

cartoon Torpedo should be easy enough. torpedo2qh4.th.jpg

Then of course there is blonde Cover Girl. http://img523.imageshack.us/img523/3528/covergirl3rc9.png

Let's not forget General Flagg. http://img407.imageshack.us/img407/5852/genflagguu9.jpg

Good eyes there. Thanks for answering that question.

Satin I left off on purpose. Again, I just have no interest in 'civilian' figures. As for the rest... man, there was a lot of cartoon-only stuff, wasn't there? Good additions all around. :)

 

I've always wanted a cartoon Ace. aceuj2.th.jpg

I recall being highly disappointed as a kid that the figure looked like an astronaut.

I've always liked the comic version more, to be honest. Of course, it wouldn't hurt to have both!

I remember when I Ace it was a total disappointment.
