FIGURES.COM: Will Hasbro's SDCC exclusives be available after the convention at Hasbro Toy Shop?
HASBRO: Yes, a limited number have been set aside for fans who could not attend SDCC.
FIGS: With the new G.I. Joe movie coming, will fans see all sorts of licensed product like toothbrushes, sheets, lunch boxes, t-shirts, etc. hitting stores soon and if so, can we get some ideas on upcoming licensed prodcuts or who holds those licenses?
HASBRO: We hope to have more info on specific licensees in the coming months; but our goal is to recreate the 80's with the GI Joe name on anything and everything!
FIGS: With the international collection logo on the new Ninja Ku Leader Storm Shadow, can we expect more internationally-themed figures in coming waves?
HASBRO: There may be one or two more down the line, but not in 2008.
FIGS: Will the figures in the upcoming vehicle two-packs have all of their accessories? (e.g. Communication gear for Breaker/Tele-Viper, etc.)
HASBRO: Honestly, for the vehicle 2 packs you are now getting 2 figures and 2 vehicles for a SRP of $14.99; that is a great deal. With all that value, we had to cut back on some of the gear.
FIGS: The list of figures posted at GIJoe.com unveiled some really exciting new names. Can fans expect a preview soon or do they have to wait for the Official G.I.Joe Collectors' Club convention in late June?
HASBRO: We are holding our debut until JoeCon later this month. We want to reward the fans who love the brand and are willing to travel to the convention to get the latest and greatest.

GIJCC Question 1: What is the official word on the change to a "mirrored" G.I. Joe logo on some of the figure packages?
Hasbro Answers: The silver foil was something that was designed to distingish the 25th anniversary product. After 12 months of anniversary product, we decided it was time to retire the silver foil and the 25th logo. It did not make sense to celebrate 25 years midway through year 26.
GIJCC Question 2: Any plans to sell those G.I. Joe protective cases (like the one that came with the mail-in Doc)?
Hasbro Answers: Yes, they will be available at the SDCC this July.
GIJCC Question 3: How about selling a pack of G.I. Joe & Cobra "two-peg" figure stands for the store exclusive figures that did not include them?
Hasbro Answers: Thanks for the idea, we will look into this suggestion.
GIJCC Question 4: Is it true that Matt Tracker from M.A.S.K. will have a G.I. Joe figure?
Hasbro Answers: Yes. A version of Matt Trakker will appear as a G.I. Joe 3 3/4" figure.
GIJCC Question 5: What is a Cobra Para-Viper?
Hasbro Answers: It is a Cobra version of a paratrooper and will be one of the best figures to date!

Storm Shadow w/ Gear
Cobra Diver w/ elements
Cobra Trooper w/ Red symbol
Crimson Guard Python patrol
Tripwire w/ Desert theme
Single Serpent (Possibly, Classic Serpentor)
I think these 3 figures willl be Wal-Mart exclusives
Duke Omega Force
Cobra Commander Omega Force
Cobra Trooper Omega Force
Since Hasbro said in the Q&A that Hall of Heroes would not be released until 2009 I doubt that will be wave 8 (wave 12)

That answer doesn't answer the question. How I interpreted the question was, I thought they were talking about some of the cards coming with the near-mirror like finish on the logo, but some didn't, and what was the official word on that.
Or am I wrong?

Here is the Q & A from JoeReloaded.com
1. In the comic, Wraith's suit was said to be created by the Red Shadows. Will the file card reflect what was revealed in the comics, that his suit was created by the Red Shadows?
We just finished the file card and the focus was more on the role that Wraith has played in the GI Joe universe rather than the history of his gear.
2. When will it be officially announced that IDW Publishing has the GI Joe comic license?
Its official and we could not be more excited!
3. Will the future GI Joe comic license holder acquire the rights to re-print the original Marvel run or the new Hama comic packs comics?
Those rights are held by Hasbro and future releases are being considered. As interest in the brand heats up during the movie, everything is being considered.
4. Will the future GI Joe comic license holder be producing books following one continuity or will they be following multiple continuities simultaneously?
Great question that we are still a few months away from being able to answer.
5. Will the future GI Joe comic license holder bring any of the previous GI Joe writers (Hama, Jerwa, Casey, Powers) on board to write the new GI Joe series?
This is really a decision that has to be made by IDW. We don’t have any information on this yet.

well, now I don't need to worry about getting a podium Cobra Commander. Since it's not 25th style, I'm not interested in it. Same reason I've always passed on the Rowdy Piper fig.

I just noticed that. I swear they said he'd be in the 25th body style. Well, there goes all the Crimson Twin customs.
Forget it Jake, it's Hisstank.
