Sales are only likely to go higher as we approach the movie and brand recognition increases. It's already starting now with Resolute on air, as well as the IDW books being on comic shelves, and books set for release during summer to bookstores and other retailers. This year is a good year to be a joe fan, with next year possibly being better. Yo Joe!

That's Brian GoldNER.
They've been so cost effective on the line that we really shouldn't be surprised. Call me a pessimist, but rather than spending more on G.I.Joe, i can see them applying cost cutting techniques to the other lines instead.

Hasbro needs to invest some of that Joe profit into research and development... *cough* Sky Striker. *cough* LOL. I think the Star Wars: The Clone Wars franchise must be their big cash cow right now though; must make the Joe profit look like chump change.

Funny that they didn't feel G.I. Joe was worth mentioning in their quarterly report just a few days earlier.
Still, clicking on that link and reading through the whole conference call might be a bit enlightening on some issues for collectors. Amidst the financial talk, they address things like price increases, costs of production, and shipping schedules.
Pretty interesting stuff.

Boy, they keep saying that he movie is based on the 80's comics series, but, man, I sure don't remember the comic being anything like that.

After reading that article it seems their Operation game sold well. I wonder if they can do different tie-ins with that game such as a GI-Joe Resolute Operation with Bazooka as the patient that you operate on. Or, perhaps a Star Wars Operation version with General Grevious.

Some people may want to go edit their comments in that last thread.
My "ONLY" beef is... July 11th??? We better get some single carded figures before that! That's way too long just looking at Ripper & Tripwires on peg hooks till. Let's repack some Resolute (now that the cartoon has sparked demand) and let's keep the wave going. Some new figures ME or Resolute would be great too. I'd like to see Resolute Zartan, SE, Flint, Baroness & Destro. Wouldn't resolute Baroness & Destro be a great 2 pk? They should put them in those outfits they wore while holding the hostages... great!
