Is A New G.I. Joe Sgt Slaughter Figure In The Works From Hasbro?!?

Recommended Posts

Jeff sends us word of this video of a live virtual signing that took place earlier this week at 80's Wrestling Con with WWE legend Sgt Slaughter. In the video at one point (time mark 1:15:30), Slaughter mentions he has a meeting this week in Rhode Island with a new friend named Ben, who he says is real close with Hasbro. Of course Hasbro is located in Rhode Island and the Ben he refers to is probably Ben Montano who is a Global Brand Executive for product, marketing & entertainment at Hasbro. You may recall he moderated the G.I. Joe brand panel during Pulse-Con.

So obviously we have know idea why Sgt. Slaughter is meeting with Hasbro or what might actually come of it, but our first thought would be to discuss the possibility of doing a new G.I. Joe figure. The last time we got a Sgt. Slaughter G.I. Joe figure from Hasbro was back in 2010 for the 3.75" 25th Anniversary line. It was released as a SDCC exclusive.

IF we got a new Slaughter figure, we would think it would be for the new 6" Classified line. Of course someone already beat Hasbro to the punch on that front since there is already a new Sgt. Slaughter 6" figure coming from Valaverse for the 1:12 scale Action Force line. If Hasbro ends up releasing a new 6" G.I. Joe Classified Sgt. Slaughter figure, it will be interesting to see who does it better?

Well, at least one will be able to choose between Hasbro's Slaughter and Valaverse's. Although I'm afraid Hasbro's Slaughter might be an exclusive.

Sounds like all Hasbro can do is try and copy what Vallaverse is doing because they have no idea how to satisfy Joe fans, lol. I doubt Hasbro even cares about satisfying Joe fans.
