I only have 1 question:
Why did Hasbro decide to use Zartan's torso for Maj. Bludd instead of HISS Driver's torso? (Which looked more like the original torso)
If that can be answered and Hasbro offers me a job as a consultant for re-using parts, then I'll be happy. If they only want to answer the question then I suppose I'll be happy with just that

the question I have is a bit different. I was wanting to know if Hasbro is planning on doing anything for the armed forces. A while back I posted an idea of a total branch five pack. This would be one from each service branch. Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard. Part of if not all the profits would go to veterans or families of those who were injured or killed in war. Not only is this a good cause but would also go over great for Hasbro's PR. I know this is a big question and hard to find the proper words for but it would be nice if this thought was expressed to Hasbro. I just like the idea of giving back.

I am excited that JoeCon is so close! I will be glued to this site for all the news.
Thanks for the kind offer to ask questions Destro. I have three off the top of my head:
1. Can we get a list of the figures with official, intentional variants from waves 1 to present? (For example, the first variant was black/silver Timber, the second was Shipwreck shark/anchor tattoo, etc.)
2. What is the ratio of mirror logos to regular logos?
3. Any plans to offer the vehicle drivers on a single card with additional accessories? (Tele-Viper gear would be awesome!)

1. When will we get the Marvel trades released by IDW
2. When are we going to get an all black V2 Snake Eyes with gray grenades, no collar around the neck, original sword and backpack.
3. A more clear answer from Hasbro about how the movie line and
25th/Modern Era Joe line will exist together
Thanks DESTRO for the opportunity to voice questions to Hasbro for those of us that can't make the trip to Joe Con
