I didn't know there was one. That would be cool if there was one. I would definitely get it if it came out. is there one coming out? I hope so because I'm so excited for movie toys that if one came out I would get it right away, that's how much I want to get my hands on these new G.I. Joe toys.

The set is mentioned on Amazon but so far has not been shown.

They didn't say anything about it at Toy Fair so I'm assuming it's not happening or it was a mistaken post by Amazon.

This, most likely.

They'll show up at Ross just like these YOJOE.COM | M.A.R.S. Troopers Pack (http://www.yojoe.com/action/09/cardedimages/marstroopers.shtml) did. Only difference is we might actually buy them.

Did Amazon have any Joe exclusives before? I was hoping there would be some TRU, Target or Wal-Mart exclusives too.

Amazon, I think it was Amazon, got the early release of the MARS 3 pack for Rise Of Cobra but it wasn't classified as an exclusive.

We didn't see any exclusives at all at Toyfair. Either it was cancelled or it will be revealed later with Target/TRU/Walmart exclusives (Assuming there will be any. Personally hoping no)

Joecon might show some, since that's the earlier show, SDCC is too late in the year. The exclusives would have to come in the later waves though due to the timing.

Mayish the toys come out. June is Joecon. That would mean that any shown would be in waves 4 and higher.


And really, with the lead time in toy manufacturing, it really is surprising that none were shown at Toy Fair.

I have a feeling there won't be any.

They haven't had any exclusively Joe-exclusive items before, but they did get the "movie colored" Unicron last year, to pretty solid sales.

I would NOT be surprised if the movie preview pack got scrapped, but I'm also not too worried about potential future exclusives. Rarely does Hasbro show store exclusives at Toy Fair (Star Wars being a rare exception).

Considering how things went for RoC, I would not be surprised if retailers held off on exclusives until the fall buying season.

If there was a 'preview' set, you'd think it would be out very soon (if not already).

Most Joe exclusives are saved for unveiling at Joecon and SDCC
