I remember there was a thread here a few months back talking about how Hasbro should put GI Joe set up in display cases like Lego does.
Well I was just in TRU and True Hero's had a display case set up! It was a little cheesy though. It was kind of small and made of plastic and it was set up with there small plastic army men and had some small jeeps and a small helicopter. Not only does True Hero's have almost an entire isle side to themselves they also have a display case.
Anyways, because we had been talking about it I thought I would bring it up. Sorry I couldn't find the original post.

I never thought of that before....but yeah! Why doesnt GI Joe have this?
Chap Mei is willing to shell out bucks for a display but Hasbro isnt?

yea that is kind of weird, hasbro has way more doh, you would think they would be pushing gi joe so much harder, even since the 25th this has been such a poorly distributed line, its jacked up because its the best line hasbro makes, hands down.

And by showing them all in action posses with some vehicles and cool backgrounds it would really let kids know what they are missing. If True Hero’s can do it, so can Hasbro and probably do it much better.

During the VvV era, TRU had in store Joe displays with the figures ale glued in action poses, with vehicles and backgrounds.
Honestly, I think the biggest problem Joe has more than anything is perception. When you see a huge aisle full of something it seems powerful and important, when you see literally ONE peg with 5 figures on it gives out that "mhh pass" vibe. It needs to be treated important to be important, so even with cool displays unless it gets some more shelf real-estate I just don't think anyone outside of collectors will care.

Even a setup like the Pirates figures would be nice. Just the figures available lined up to showcase them. I hate the Pirates movies, and the figures don't impress me, but boy would I like to take one of those displays home.
