Not saying it will happen again here, I'm just saying to wait and see, cause chances are, Hasbro has a good grasp as to what will sell to kids or not.
And just a general "lol" at people complaining that some of these are too "unrealistic" and that the new Raven sucks because it "can't fly". In a toy line filled with flight packs, trouble bubbles, open canopy tanks and artillery and so many other bizzarre and fantastical crafts and vehicles, a long slender jet with short wings won't fly?
Personally, I'm definately getting that Raven. The original was awesome, and I would love to have it myself. But it was proven that the cockpit was too small to fit a 25th so a direct re-issue is out and I doubt Hasbro would create an entirely new remold of something that massive. So this little one works great for me. And that Hummer/Van thing will go nice with my Vipers...assuming you can fit more troops in the back seat. From the looks of it, it seems to have a sliding roof with a pop up launcher. If that's the case I fear there may only be 2-3 chairs in the whole thing, which isn't enough to carry my Cobras. However, I'll be passing on the two Joe vehicles, not because they're bad, but because I've never been big on Artic stuff.

Wow! Night Raven looks great. I wish it were more like the vintage counterpart, but that style of jet always looks good.
And the driver for the Scarab--Night Viper custom anyone?
Check out photos of my collection (G.I. Joe, Simpsons, G Gundam, Transformers, Star Wars and MUSCLE Things):

And the spring-loaded weapons can be thrown in the junk box.
See! Hasbro is keeping the collector in mind.
Looking for at reasonable prices:

Looks like Hasbro put a little more emphasis on playability than collectibility - one step above Playskool.
Yes my thoughts exactly ..
Hasbro doesn't really pay much attention to the collector market ,just putting out stuff for kids to play with .
At least Mattel has recognised this and is offering exclusives for the collectors market .

See the plane mode (minus the robot hangin' off the bottom, LOL) of Transformers Universe Silverbolt for the what i was hoping ~ it's updated with sharktouch style stealth paneling and integrated air intakes...
the funny thing is, to me this actually looks MORE retro (largely cuz it looks like all the fictional 80s jets Firefox/mig 31) then the old school Night Raven as opposed to updated ala an f-22/35 or Predator
My 25th Most Wanted List:
1. Tunnel Rat <-CHECK! 2. General Hawk (v2)<-CHECK! 3. Leatherneck <-CHECK(kinda...)
4. Jinx 5. Dusty <-CHECK! 6. Snow Serpent <-CHECK! 7. Tele-Viper <-CHECK(kinda...)
8. Falcon<-CHECK (kinda...) 9. Footloose <-CHECK! 10. Recondo <-CHECK!
9 down, 1 to go ~ but i really want a new Leatherneck and Falcon
