since the figure pack had the joes upgraded.

Why not Ace?

We've seen him on the comic pack and he does not look the came incarnation of the 1983 figure that came with a skystriker jet.

do you want to see a upgraded and accurate of Ace? even as a cartoon version?

I might be the odd ball, but I like the Ace that comes with the TRU commanders pack.

i dont think ace really matters unless we ever get a skystriker.

Ace in the cartoon looked like a modern air force soldier. ace from the toy's face and coloring looks like a reject from the flying bombers of WWII. He reminds me of my grandfather. A drunk old Irishman.

Exactly. He's basically on the bench until then, with Slipstream laughing at him.

Its funny you say that, I used Sci-Fi version 2 as my ace figure, and my Sci-Fi version 1 figure as . . . well, you understand.

Sci-Fi 2 looks just like Ace in the face.
...Ace in the face. ...jeezy

I love the cartoon Ace! His toy looks like a goof ball.

I think they should do cartoon ace.

All it is a new head on a Lamprey body pretty much.

A cartoon version is exactly the kind of repaints I'm totally cool with. If you're going to release a previous character and need to repaint him, at least gie us an homage to a past different expression of the character... Others falling into this category: the Roadblock v2 "urban camo" retool, the Blue/Black Baroness, TF and PP repaints, and the cartoon colored Wild Bill.

I'm happy with the CP Ace, but if they made a cartoon Ace, that'd become my default Ace :)

As for the SRO Ace, I'm sorry, That's Ripcord in my world. He wears a vintage Ripcord harness with Torpedo's mask and a Mutt helmet. At some point I need to paint the camo on him

I'd like a cartoon accurate Ace as well. Ideally he'd come with a cartoon accurate Skystriker as well.

The 2-pack Ace is accurate enough to the original toy... meaning it's terrible, lol. I always felt the toon version was a bit nondescript, though... I'd be down with a hybrid, updated version, with the original's coloring and proper flight gear instead of that bathtub astronaut getup.

Shogi - you're dead-on about SRO Ace. Mine's sporting Paraviper gear, also needs the camo painted on. http://s70.photobucket.com/albums/i116/hellion42/smilies/heh.gif

I think the TRU one is the best, they can stop now. Although he could use a better mask and an actual plane. The Comic Version Sucked and the 83 version sucked too.

I'm up for just about any inaccurate character getting re-released with new parts.

Gotta say, though, Ace is low on my list... Leatherneck, Crankcase, Spirit, any of the O13, I'd like to see them first.

As to I. If only he'd come with a face mask.

Ace will come packaged with the howler jet (Mark my words)!!!!! Wait and see!

I'd love an update of the original's goofy space suit. I always thought he was nifty, although he contrasts so much with the Skystriker's very realistic design.
Cartoon would be cool too, if he had a new helmet, not wild bill's tiny skull-crusher.
I've always felt that the RAH Joe drivers for the most part ranged from boring to lame, although Ace was certanly unique.
Seems all the Joe drivers have gotten the shaft as far as new tooling, Steeler and Thunder didn't even get their signature head gear!
And Wild Bill gets treated like a king, with 17 different versions.

The Skystriker was my first GI Joe vehicle and one of my favorites all-time, but I agree Ace's astro-suit always looked goofy. I'm okay with the CP version, but I want a new Skystriker to go with a re-tooled Ace.

I'm all for a Cartoon Ace...with his astro-suit and his visor and G-Force Oxygen Mask, that'd be AWESOME...Of Course that would neccessitate a Skystriker, Sorta...Oh well, I'll take what I can get.
