Now that I have my two sets ordered, I can't help wonder if this is one of the only ways we may get some of our old favorites. Who is missing? Who deserves to be made? Obviously where is Lowlight? But with the randomness of who is left how do they fit in a pack together. Maybe a Night Force theme with Lowlight?

Repeater
Psyche-Out
Crazy-Legs
Falcon
Muskrat
Spearhead

But in your opinions, who are the most deserving besides Lowlight?

Can't say that I am, but since my local shops suck anyway, I guess I'm use to buying 80% online. However this seems to be the only way we may ever get our classics anymore. There are only so many left. I for one have little faith in the TRU 5 pack with Footloose. Usually they are sucky repaints.

Yeah how many times has that happened to all of us. I even bought Star wars for a short period since there was nothing new waiting for the ROC roll-out. I guess Hasbro still got my money. :)

my short list:
Dreadnoks (Thrasher, Zanzibar, Road Pig w/some repaints)
October Guard
Joes in Dress Uniforms (mix of 82-85)
A cartoon nod (Love to see a 2 sets devoted to "Worlds Without End", can't get enough of 'noks as cops!)
And i would take a RAH movie Cobra-La group if it got me Big Lob and Zarana

So yeah A 7 pack of Cobras should start with a Night-viper no doubt. I'm pretty much down with this list. Although I'd switch the Astro for a HEAT-Viper.

You'd think they have an easy two pack Lowlight vs a Night-Viper. Although How can that appease the army builder in me?

i thought that they were originally going to make the 5th pack the movie. i was REALLY annoyed when they changed it to a 'best of" pack at the last min. who knows what they tooled or wer in the process of tooling for this pack. i am almost sure that nemesis was meant for this pack originally and was to the point in production that they had to slot him in somewhere so a comic pack was the best way.

I'm curious as to why buying online is such a big deal. Let's face it. They don't sell toys like they use to. I'm not sure why GIJoe can't pull off what Star Wars is doing. I don't think the Star wars sell that much better, they just have pegs and pegs full of peg warmers. (I'm talking about you, Yarna d'al' Gargan!)


I can see not wanting to pay the extra shipping, And really to get a break even point you may have to buy a case of 8 with 4 guys you don't want. Plus They must know entirely new characters are going to sell better than V32 Cobra Commander.

But then this still comes down to Hasbro not making enough of what people want. Troop builders sell. Bottom-line. I've seen the Targets get rid of their last wave 13 stuff, The only wave I didn't buy the whole case of. Now the Flints and Cobra soldiers are finally gone. I usually don't even catch the Cobra Divers and Ninja-vipers. I don't need any but I know they were snatched up. Plenty of CC, Airborne, Glenda, and Rippers though.

I wonder how well a Cobra-La set would do. Can't say I'm a fan, but if Pythona and Big Lob were in it I might be forced to buy. And I don't even like them. I might need to make a poll of what it should be.

Cover-Girl

Lady Jaye

I doubt they would even try, but they might be surprised. Plus maybe the brand would become popular with little girls.

i would really like to see the next releases as single packs, but i dont think hasbro will do that. the 7 packs or 2 packs a are a better option.

i would die to get a good Nigth Viper, no repaints or reused parts, and paired with a Saw Viper, a H.E.A.T. viper, a Rock Viper, a Tele Viper (if it's Python Patrol all the better) and a TARGAT to get some Destro's army in there would be a winner pack.

and in the side of joe's i really hope we could see the promised Footloose and a proper Leatherneck along some other favorites as long as i see characters like Recoil, Big ben or HardBall i'm happy.

so your in favor of these bullshit online exclusives? why?

1st of all its not like we have much of a choice, except not to buy them. 2nd I think offering something a bit "more" to the hardcore fans made collecting run a bit deeper. 3rd. The Extreme Conditions sets were 100% awesome...awesome like they looked so good I dont wanna take em out of the box. 4th If the new 7 packs are half as good as the previous, we are in good shape as Joe fans. 5th. With RoC I doubt anything 25th is gonna be on a peg anytime soon...so bring on more 7 packs! I have no problem ordering online. BBTS has never been anything less then exceptional with service and again, I thought the last 7 packs rocked.

Here's who I would like....

Lightfoot
Sci-Fi
Blizzard
Sneak-Peak
Dojo
Fast-Draw
Bushido

and COBRA...

Slice
Dice
Frag-Viper
SAW-Viper
Raptor
Night-Viper
Techno-Viper

(that was a tough list because I will literally take ANY 25th charecters! I know I might get stones thrown at me here...but I would like VERY much to see just a little incorporation of Ninja Force into the 25th line.)
