I stopped collecting 2 years ago when that Rise Of Cobra trash came out. I had started collected the 25th Anniversary Line. When is Hasbro going to continue making the characters we want remakes of, not that new movie garbage?

Obviously there have been no announcements, except for the SDCC Jinx figure that is basically an Anniversary figure. I suppose after the Retaliation figures, we'll probably go back to "regular" figs.

Yeah! When is Hasbro going to stop trying to attract a new market and instead pander to an aging, stagnent demographic 100% of the time?!!?!

The movie figures aren't even here yet. the movie is not even going to be in theaters for 4 months and you're already demanding the end of the movie line so they can make product YOU want?!

Hasbro must be really unsure what to do here... produce a line of movie figures that come bundled in with a million dollar promotional package from paramount that retailers always order by the ton... or make some more 30th figures that they can't seem to get retailers to distribute at all. This is quite the conundrum...

We'd all like to see more classic figures. It's not going to happen for a while though.

Considering the first movie line failed, I'd say that sounds about right.

50th anniverssary after we survive the mayan accoplypse of 2012, the zombie resurrection of 2020, and then the alien invasion of 2028...if we manage to make it through all of that and retail still supports toys by then we shoud be golden for a return to 30th anniversary style figures...that is if we come out of the non-articualted toy civil wars of 2013 ok...

30th Anniversary/ PoC are effectively done. Right now, retailers are simply selling through existing inventory before the movie line takes over in May.

While movie stuff will be a priority, Hasbro is not above giving us stuff we want (like a modern Red Ninja, or the "likely moved from 30th" Crimson Guard and Night Viper)

Raw Dog
02-25-2012, 07:19 PM
Lol, pretty soon I hope. I think first we will be getting some new Retaliation figures. They will most likely sprinkle in some "30th" figures. I think they actually revealed a new CG and Night Viper at Toy Fair, which is cool. So before the end of the year then, but I guess I don't know for sure.

Ford
02-25-2012, 07:53 PM
I wish Hasbro would just come out and say that after Retaliation, they're ending the current line. No more Duke, Snake Eyes, Cobra Commander, Storm Shadow, etc. The characters are retired. They had their ARAH figures, and pretty much everybody has had a modern version. Time to build something new.

if you are a joe collector with a taste for quality and arah homages you will need to fill out your collection with 25th anniversary and pick and choose from the upcomming releases. there is a new mold crimson guard and a night viper coming that are throwbacks. also the (single carded) ninjas look to be high quality.

02-25-2012, 08:56 PM
Also the Club is doing a subscription service with some awesome 25th style figures. However we know nothing about when it's coming out, it's gonna be about 25 bucks a figure and the club just got hit with massive credit card hacking. Other than that it sounds great.

The problem was with the way you asked the question. You said the movie stuff is garbage, RoC was trash. Had you just said something to the affect of I prefer the classic characters. When do you think we could see more of them? I'm sure things would have turned out better. But trashing stuff others like and complaining about not getting what YOU want is gong to get you blasted every time.

I don't mind the attempts Hasbro has made to reboot the line. Renegades perhaps bothered me a bit. It was the pants always those ugly pants. Though I still bought Tunnel Rat, Cobra Commander, Firefly, Duke and Eventually I shall buy Scarlet. It brought us the Resolute line which I have the Three Six packs, Duke, and Cobra Commander from the single packs. Than Rise of Cobra gave us great figures. Figures that if you don't use them for what they were make great interesting new characters. I don't want to live in the 1980's. GI Joe needs to be updated and I look forward to the time where Hasbro becomes serious and goes for it. I want Resolute style/action with Renegades character development. However the half hazard way of rebooting is nothing about the great figures we have had from ROC-?????<I see a lot of figures I like from Retaliation so I'm not sure when my joy shall end. I for one am glad Hasbro doesn't pay you guys who want obscure characters I never heard of any mind.

I don't see the point in Big Boa. I want more females though. Quinn was a good figure that got cancelled and new. Again I'm not into Joe Mythoes. I'm a DIC/DEF/Ninja Force/Star Brigade kid. Quinn was a great new figure and one I wish made it. I was going to use him in the desert group as a British Liason.

Besides you want Big Boa buy a Subscription. I hate the direction that the DCUC is going and yes I am signed up for the Infinite Earth Club. If your aren't happy with the figures coming out than there is a fan service for you, just not for me.

I'm tired of people like you who are trying to tell others what "we" want remakes of.
First, who the hell is "we"?
Second, I don't want remakes of 80s cartoon characters in funny colours or something along that line.
I don't need a Stalker in a yellow babysuit or a Scarlett in a funny leotard. I also don't want a Gung-Ho who always forgets to put on a shirt or some big guy who walks around in a Football jersey.
I don't want my army to look like a bunch of circus clowns.

I'm perfectly happy with ROC, POC, 30th and the upcoming Retaliation figures and I'm sure that after these, the world will keep turning.

Hate to break it to you, but you're a little too late to the party, buddy. And be warned: It's all GAY, PINK CASTLES, PURPLE TEXT... You might wanna leave before it's too late for you... save yourself!

Lol, pretty soon I hope. I think first we will be getting some new Retaliation figures. They will most likely sprinkle in some "30th" figures. I think they actually revealed a new CG and Night Viper at Toy Fair, which is cool. So before the end of the year then, but I guess I don't know for sure.

oh hell yes new CG hope it doesnt suck

You're right. We should always let guests come into our house and stomp mud all over our new couch. That's just good hospitality.

Being a guest carries responsibility too. Yes, a good host should try to make his guest feel welcome, but a good guest should try to be respectful. Or as Jetfire said, don't stomp mud all over the new couch.

Retaliation figures are currently getting ready for shipment late next month and should be in stores by April. The Retaliation Ninja Battle 3-packs should actually be available for pre-order next month and in stores sometime late next month. Currently, Walmart and most Targets have either completely stopped or are keeping 30th/Renegades orders at a bare minimal to clear room for Retaliation figures and vehicles. Hasbro looked at the success of PoC which was under stocked in many areas but sold well and 30th Anniversary which currently has a high consumer demand and therefore continued many aspects of classic G.I. Joe lore into Retaliation figures. Besides Roadblock, Duke and Storm Shadow, many of the figures do not look movie centric. For instance, we are getting a Classic Jinx, Night Viper and Crimson Guard update under movie toy line. We will get more figures like Lifeline and Sci-Fi next year but unless there is an announcement of something otherwise like a re-branding of Joe which includes all new characters.

Come on, his entire rant was nothing more than whiny, entitled fan bullshit and he got called out on it.

His wants make absolutely no sense especially after he revealed he hasn't even bought a figure in 2 years. He wants more 30th product and updated classics?! You've got to be kidding me! They've been on the shelf for 2 years and didn't buy them!

The flaw in this is pretty easy to see. WAH! I don't like what hablow is making! MAKE WHAT I WANT!!!! Even though you've been doing it... and I didn't buy any of it.

From the perspective of the size of the product offering, the two most successful Joe endeavors since RAH were the combined new sculpt lines (JvC, Spy Troops and Vvv) and the 25th/ME line.

One targeted kids with new characters and new versions of old characters, and the other targeted collectors with retro remakes. clearly there is no clear cut answer whether the retro remakes are what the brand needs or not to be successful, so I don't think that has to be Hasbro's focus after Retaliation.

Haven't seen a single Zombie at retail and with May quickly approaching I don't see it happening... I also foresee wave 5 Retaliation dropping mid December this year and thus completing the yearly circle of shenanigans that is Hasbro releasing awesome G.I. Joes at Christmas when the store just ordered 1000x of the previous case which had Duke and SS! LOL! Sad but true...

It always kills me when people throw the term gay around as if it was some kind of insult. Some of the smartest, most successful people I know are gay and they're not ashamed to admit it. Calling someone gay as an insult is not only senseless in this day and age... it's flat out ignorant.

I think Hasbro will continue to produce action figures inspired by the ARAH mythology as long as they have product on the shelf. So far, we've seen a Jinx, Beachhead, Night Viper, Red Ninja, and Crimson Guard who are all on tap for the Retaliation line which would also work as 30th figures if that line were to continue, which I guess it isn't, but I get what the OP meant, so I guess that's the answer, I suppose, lol!

Plus a jack ass is just an animal we use for labor. So it's really a compliment. Also cock is the male chicken, which squawks every morning to awaken the farm, which is a very important part of every day. Tits are cute little birds that can cheer anyone up. And hooters are deadly predators of the night. A motherfucker is just your dad, so people who say "you motherfucker!" are really proud of their dad. A son of a bitch is nothing more than an adorable little puppy.
