Has anyone heard about Hasbro stating they aren't going to make a hooded Cobra Commander figure because hoods are problematic?

There's a customizer who 3D prints hooded heads who said this, but I cant find any reference to Hasbro saying it anywhere online. The customizer is charging 100 dollars for their, admittedly nice, custom head, but I dont want to buy it if Hasbro will be putting out a hooded one.

I never saw an official statement by Hasbro nor any of their designers... If I were you, I just wait for Hasbro to release one or just buy the Ultimate Cobra Commander or the DVD battles version from eBay that is way less than those $100 the customizer is trying to charge you... 

I hired a year ago a customizer to make me some figures and he did a great job and it was not near to the cost you mentioned...

He said that its because a hood and has "racist undertones". Personally I never even once considered his hood mask racist and never made that connection. Maybe he was just trying to keep ppl buying hi

I can't imagine why anyone would be seriously considering this. I'm not even a big GI Joe fan and even I know Cobra Commander is the main villain, so there is absolutely no way Hasbro isn't going to m

Ha, Hasbro Pulse will probably have it up soon as a $29.00 "deluxe" exclusive (that will also include the helmeted head we've already seen, except this one will have a "chrome" look to the visor).  And what is so "problematic" about it? They only need to modify the hood Zartan has or Storm Shadow wears for the arctic variant that's already been done. Hasbro has been doing hooded figures for years (Cloak, Moon Knight, Doom, Taskmaster) and besides, they already did the hooded Cobra back when they did their 3.75" line.

Anyone who's paying $100.00 for a head sculpt that's gonna be out (along with the rest of the entire figure for $20.00), deserves to have his money taken from him.

He said that its because a hood and has "racist undertones". Personally I never even once considered his hood mask racist and never made that connection. Maybe he was just trying to keep ppl buying his customs. 🤔

He maybe uninformed or he is just speculating with you so you buy his figure...

I agree with the others, sounds like the guy is spreading an unsubstantiated rumor to boost sales. There's no way that Hasbro doesn't milk the Cobra Commander mold for all of its worth in every variant possible.  Even if what he's saying is true I have seen very talented customizers sell painted headsculpts for half of that, less in most cases.

Oh my God, this is female figure with double jointed elbows that are pin less.... I decided to ignore reveals of GI since i didn't care for them but I just realized I missed one of the most important development for action figure industry. And it looks sooo goood
