There were several vehicles at the end of the 25th/ME run that were very hard to find. Out of these, which ones do you think deserve another run in the 30th line? We all know Hasbro loves using the same molds, so what molds would you like to see get new life?

Let me clarify: I'm talking about the harder to find vehicles we already saw in 25th and ME.

While I'd buy at least on more of half the choices up there, the 25th Rattler would top my list. I worry that that time we see it, it'll be in fugly colors (i.e. something other than Cobra Blue)

i have them all but the rattler is cool enough to have a rerelease. : )

I like it the best out of the vehicles in that list, and I rarely saw it on the shelves in my area. Artic HISS is a real close second just because - it is an Artic HISS.

I never had a problem getting the vehicles listed on your poll. Good old fashion hunting and e-tailers helped.
As far as the 30th Ann. we've already seen all that we're getting for the 30th line. Thanks to the movie toyline coming out next Spring.

Hit us with a 2 seater Sky Striker then lets see a Raven a Tomahawk,a Moray,and a Whale, and ecspecially lets see a Mauler. This would all rock so hard. Yo Joe!!!

I would love to have another crack at the Water Moccasin, and maybe another Rattler!

The only one of those I would buy is the FANG!

Just throwing this out there, I've got a 25th Water Moccasin (Sting Raider) and Arctic HISS both mint in box never touched, but the drivers have been removed.

I'll be bringing them to the next FL Mutt Meet, but if anyone here wants them before them shoot me a PM maybe we could make a trade or something.

Also, so as to not thread hijack...I don't want them to re-release anything from the 25th line. I think they either need to re-release stuff we didn't get yet, or just go in an entirely new direction. Too much rehash is bad for the longevity of the line.

Stinger, but please use the retooled 25th VAMP this time as a base, not the 98 Rattler. Wouldn't mind another Ghost HAWK either, that thing rocked.

I think the mold is still operational... I'd love to see the Stun return.

It's a very iconic piece of Cobra hardware, just just as frequently as the HISS in the second season of GI Joe.

It would give collectors the chance to get a mint version. It's so hard to find them with both flags, the engine covers etc.

It's also an easy repaint to get a Python Patrol version which would save me a lot of heartache considering the price they're going for on ebay.

It's not going to happen, but I would buy a VAMP Mk 2. Just repaint the Stinger and change the missile rack with the Snowcat and you're there.

Personally, I'd like another shot at the Rattler (the original color scheme, not the Tiger Force one). For some stupid reason, I passed on this at Target for months, even after it hit clearance. I think I was on the fence about collecting vehicles at the time, I was only getting a few figures that I really liked but then sort of turned into a completist.

All the others listed in the poll I managed to get pretty easily, but I'd like a few more FANGs.

rattler and stinger would be cool

I missed out on the Stinger, so that one got my vote.

I don't really care for any of the choices including "something new." What I'd like is to release a revised/updated version of many of the ARAH vehicles we haven't seen yet.

These include the Hydrofoil, WHALE, HISS 2, Fang 2, Tomahawk, and Mauler.

If I couldn't have that option, then I'd ask for the Rattler. I passed on it the first time because I already had Wild Weasel from the comic pack and had no room for any big vehicles. Now that I have a Skystriker, it seems I should really have it's Cobra nemesis to go with it.

It would be great to see this released. Its simple and isn't a rehash of the 25th line.

Limited to the above choices I picked the Fang, I was holding out hope that they would show up at TJ Maxx but I fear that ship has sailed.

i voted ghost hawk but would be ok with stinger and rattler (maybe in joe colors this time- thunderbolt (http://www.yojoe.com/vehicles/97/thunderbolt/))

I don't have a Rattler, but even then, the 25th release was enough. Between it and the vintage, I could get one if I wanted to.

I say out with the old. Let's see some new vintage releases. My big hope is for the Moray. But I don't think we should get our hopes up for the 30th. I think the Skystriker is about all we'll be seeing for the 30th.

This is one I'd really like to see, but I agree, it's not going to happen, not with a PoC-style VAMP in the 30th line. That would confuse everybody. Best chance we have is a JoeCon exclusive. Which will suck, because then none of us could afford it. :)

I skipped the Rattler when 25th first came out because I already had Wild Weasel in the two pack, and because I was in the process of moving and didn't really have the room for it.

So, if they were to rerelease something, I'd want that, so that my Skystriker had something to shoot at.

I would like the Rattler, as I plan on buying it anyways at a ridiculous price.

You said it. I just went shopping and the prices are outrageous for an item that went almost directly to clearance.

I think that it's weird that you can find a vintage Rattler for less then a 25th one.

Did they change the seats when they released the Rattler in the 25th line? Or will a 25th figure fit just as well into a vintage one as a new one?

Yes they retooled the seats in both cockpits and made the landing gear more sturdy. It has a bit more heft compared to the vintage molds too. A 25th figure cannot fit into the old one.

The Moray ought to be retooled, the last release, a TRU repaint for the Joes, was HORRIBLE.

The way they handled the Skystriker is what gives me hope that they will. Fingers crossed!
