  1. His hand being fisted was a decision by the sculptor. he wanted Shipwreck to punch guys. Sounds nice, but I prefer a functional toy. Fists should be pop-and-switch accessories. Now Shipwreck is limited in what he can do. But forget his gimp hand, what about his gimp HEAD?!
  2. 1. Will improved hip articulation be implemented for future figures in the line? From the prototypes shown, they appear to have difficulty sitting and that is very bad, particulartly if vehicles come into play. Like 1982/1983, will we see the toys currently having the old hip articulation be rereleased on single cards (multipacked Joes specifically) WITH the new articulation and their own card artwork? 2. What made the team go with a neo-classic style, hybridizing several Joe media with a modern tweak vs a vintage style using only one source (toy OR comic OR cartoon)? Theoretically, we could have seen three nicely-distinct lines in one signature style that could have intermixed nicely. Was it licensing issues? Issues with name and weapons to be made, etc? 3. Should the line take off, would Hasbro stick to old toys or introduce some figures of characters never made or drawn from one media source (Oktober Guard, Kwinn, Cobra La)? 4. Fans love army-builders and the Cobra Troopers and Grunts are high on the list. Will are the odds of seeing different ethnic groups represented, be it a change in skin tone or face sculpt? Will female troops (blue shirts AND green shirts for the Joes) finally be made? 5. Has the subject of vehicles or accessory packs been discussed? Has replacable heads or new/extra weapons been considered, or will we see these changes implemented as the line continues (via multipacks, etc)?
  3. I own a 12" Lady Jaye Convention Exclusive.
  4. Oddly, I was looking for Flint. My brother bought Snake Eyes, so I bought Lady Jaye, expecting to find Flint later. I never did...but I went through two Lady Jayes since the first one broke her thumb. Weird.
  5. But still, I'd love to see Dwight Stall taking a shot at resculpting this v2 Scarlett. Scarlett is a ninja like Snake Eyes. He is also a commando, while she is also counter-intelligence. He has his commando-esque attire, and his ninja-like attire and weaponry. This would be a fun Scarlett to see released. Keep the green and it is, make the yellow not fluorescent, some cool gold shoulder gauntlets, her ninja weaponry fully-painted, and voila! An impeccable update. My only question is: Rooted ponytail as an homage to the comic version, or long hair like the comic book?
  6. Hi! I am not the hugest Transformers fan, but I did find these for those who are interested and live in CT. There are 5 of these sets at the West Hartford area Target (New Britain?) Exit 40 off of I-84 Corbins Corner exit. The case was opened in front of me. I bought one. There are 6 to a case. This happened at 8PM EST. Happy Hunting.
  7. Can I get a Lady Jaye that looks like your avatar?
  8. And where do you work to get that kind of information?
  9. FYI, my brother saw some of the control art and I believe storyboard art for this series. It is VERY abstract in design. I have to assume by the best of his assessment that it's like Clone Wars or Foster's in style. If I remember correctly, that's what he said. What I do recall definitely, he said it's NOT good at all, VERY simplistic in design, and Optimus is a fire engine. Reading the posts here, I believe what my brother saw. The designs were too out there, but maybe it'll translate well in animation and story. Who knows?
  10. I have this cool cartoon Classics image in my head that Optimus Prime transforms and uses two guns when necessary, but in a firefight, tosses Bumblebee his smokestack gun, keeping the wind vane gun for himself. It's goes in Bumblebee's hand better than in OP's anyway. Try it.
  11. Sorry, but i just bought the classics Bumblebee. 2 things came to mind: 1. What car is the classics Bumblebee supposed to be? He cartainly isn't a VW Bug. 2. Why hasn't an Alternator Bumblebee been made using the new WV Bug model??? It sounds like an easy fit for the line.
  12. I know they want it, but their marketing department, which acts like an oversight committee, shoots it down for S6. No it's not marketing. The forces that keep them from coming out are higher up than marketing. Marketing just has to come up with a way to convince those people to make them. Marketing has sold the line well. Marketing gave them the success it needed to branch out. Now they want to do new riskier characters and the higher-ups wants them to continue to do what has been working. The 2.5" is the best argument they have that they will sell (at least as part of a set). I talk to marketing. It's not them, I swear LOL.
  13. The Hasbro team WANT the ladies made. The guy in charge did Batman for YEARS and he said catwoman, Poison Ivy, Harley Quinn, Batgirl ALL sold through and they have the numbers to back it up. Princess Leia, Blackarachnia, Arcee, among others all did well, and he has NO idea why the stockholders and the management can't be convinced otherwise. Scarlett is already designed (her hair is still long and have two crossbows designed). They said the most concrete arguement they can give the management is for the 2.5" counterparts to sell through. I know I am buying them to donate to toys for Tots in December. Buy any and all female 2.5" figures. Write handwritten letters to Hasbro too and call the 800-number and request them! 1 800 327 8264
  14. The point is that you get the chance to obtain the original vehicles. I'd gladly take a blue Rattler over a crimson Rattler anyday, but there should be room for both if it helps sales. And technically, it would be a resculpt, not a reissue.
  15. Wolverine Tank (with Cover Girl) Chameleon (with Zartan) Flight Pod Whale (with Cutter) RAM JUMP Pack Skystriker (with Ace) Rattler (with Wild Weasel) Joe and Cobra Gliders (with Greenshirts/Grunts and Cobra Troopers) HISS Tank (with HISS Tank driver) I was also a fan of the outposts, watchtowers, and battle stations they had. But the vehicles listed are tops on my list. I'd also like to see removable equipment that was originally molded onto the vehicle (shovels, tools, etc)
