From Hasbro Q&A, they were clearlt said Quick Kick would be released sometimes this year. What about that plan? I am tired to wait for another year - maybe never - for one of my favorite figure.

I'm willing to bet by wave 10 or 11 we will see a TF Duke.

I wonder what color scheme the Alley-Viper will be? His original orange camo or something more fitting to an urban combat specialist like black/blue.
Until I see official confirmation then it's just rumor, but that doesn't mean it still won't pan out. Ever since store release lists started popping up on the boards there's been the usual doubt and speculation ('87 COBRA Commander? Why would Hasbro release him?). Hasbro also has a habit of changing thier minds on a whim also I'm sure they feed us a good amount of BS just so the fan community doesn't know 100% what to expect.
So I'm keeping my fingers crossed for the IRON Grenadier, EELS, and Alley-Viper. If Hasbro releases them great, if not, there's still time before they have to start putting out movie stuff.

After reading all nine pages of this thread (man rumors sure do make people talk!), I'm willing to think we'll see all these characters by the end of this year. We know that Hasbro begins on creating the figure months before they'll ever hit shelves (maybe a year I think I read somewhere). So every one is legit, no matter how obscure (example, making a Scarface before Bludd or Mindbender).
Another thing is that, you can't tell me that Hasbro doesn't use 'feelers' in forums (such as this awesome one ) to see what is going on. So, this list could very well be partially/completely made up by Hasbro and put out here to get feedback. I mean, Hasbro is here to make money, and if we clamor about "I want to see this figure and not this figure" they will respond, at least they have so far.

Hey guys, here's a few Ideas I had concerning this list:
First off, everyone is thinking that the numbers are Wal-Mart SKU's.....what if they're UPC numbers? For instance, Iron Grenadier Destro's UPC is: 653569289364 Notice the first 6 numbers are exactly like the numbers from this list
Also, others said that Cutter was supposed to be made but Hasbro had a problem with the Red Sox logo, if that's true, then wouldn't Hasbro look to other figures they could use that hat/head mold on? Hardball would probably work well for that, and possibly they planned that, then got the red tape cleared up with the Sox logo, or decided to do something else so they could also release Cutter
I still think it's odd that they would release another Scarface. As for Mangler, Hasbro has said they like to have one obscure character in each wave

Well, again...to those who keep saying "DON'T BELIEVE THE LIST! IT'S THE DEVIL!"...
There's a reason it was listed as *RUMOR*.
Also, there's quite a few figures on that list that have already been confirmed.
To those who say that a figure wouldn't be released as both a CP and Single card...um, wha? Where have "you" been? lol.
Like I said before....until we have official confirmation via Hasbro and/or our friends in Asia, and not from some "source" on the internet, take it all as pure speculation.

THey could have still made Cutter but just without the Red Sox logo, he still would look good without it

Well Hasbro probably listed those figures, because those are closest to figures they could make with the parts they curretly have. They did say, when a new figure is made, they also look at how many other times can they reuse the parts, before having to make a completely new mold. I hope if not all, at least most of those fig's are legit.

I'm highly doubtful of this list too - for wave 9, they list Snake Eyes v.4. The wave 7 Snake Eyes is listed on the Gi Joe club site as v.4 as well. So unless Hasbro is listing one solitary re-release in 2 waves with otherwise entirely new characters, then the list is referring to a new SE version with an incorrect/old version number. Seems unlikely that Hasbro would mischaracterize their own version numbers after recently publishing a clear marker with the release of the wave 7 pics.
That's not to say I wouldn't love some of those figures (some = all). I just wouldn't peg them as likely.

One thing that is sketchy about this rumor is that previously the Walmart computers have never given us any indication of what wave the figures will be in. They'd just be a list. Makes me believe someone just made it up, or at best is elaborating some half truths.
And what about the comic packs, I thought from here on out they'd all be new stories? Not a lot to work with using Mangler.
