A little off topic with Benchie but what is the story on the Snow Cat I saw pics of.Are we getting it?I love the Rockslide then and now set mainly for the Battle bear(yes,that is what it will always be called in my mind).

I think that, with very minor retooling, someone could remake Brench Press into High-Tide, The disguised Copperhead in the Phoenix Guard.

Thanks for sourcing the explanation SNAKE EYES, that should put the argument to rest. Heh, two characters with the same name. Maybe IRL, but who does this on purpose in a fictitious setting? Do you really people believe your own BS? I suppose the heavy machine gun and bio was just a coincidence? You don't have to defend Hasbro if you don't work for them.
This copyright biznass makes me frown. Would have been nice to have a proper Rock 'n' Roll but "Bench-Press"? Yuck. Try harder, Hasbro, take note of these suggested alternatives:
Roll 'n' Rock
Rock and/or Roll
Rock, then Roll
Rock, followed by Roll
Sgt. Stone 'n' Roll
Stop, Drop 'n' Roll
or true to the name's roots: Automatic Fire Selector
Voila! Now hire me for your legal team and i'll fix the other character names too.
Also, Brendan Fraser is an ass hat and wrestling sucks.

Supposedly, It was supposed to be Rock ĎN Roll, but Hasbro could not get the rights. They changed his story and messed up by using his original name.

I don't know I still have some hope with the Footloose figure. I thought the footloose 5 pack was a Toys r us exclusive not a Target exclusive...
Maybe we will get the real deal in the future... I know it's just a dream but a men needs to dream right?

I thought Rock 'n' Roll has blond hair.

Bench-Press looks like the guy from Pheonix Guard - "High Tide" - that was Copperhead in disguise. (For those who don't read the comics, he was in GI Joe "America's Elite" #13.)

I don't know. The card art reminds me of a young Jessie Ventura. The figure's bald head only adds to the image for me. I wouldn't mind if the ex Navy SEAL and former Governor were to become a Joe.
Forget it Jake, it's Hisstank.

i can use his hat for a custom path finder, the rest of him i can add dynamite and take revenge, cause Rock N Roll was my very 1st GI Joe from ARAH so taking him out of the movie line just plain sucks, so does changing the sex of dial tone and the nationality of Ripcord, Repeater and Breaker.
If your making up new characters anyway, why not use them to meet your african american and middle eastern quota or whatever it is thats making GI Joe change so much. I was happy with the 25th anniversary line, getting all my old characters saved up for my own kids to have some day, the only problem i was having was ending up with a dozen different cobra commanders and snake eyes to one tripwire and no jinx.
ROC is promising no Jinx into 2010, likely no Zandar or Zarana and the rest of my old characters to either been ruined like the above mentioned or not made at all. How is this listening to the fans or in anyway better.

That's just dumb. He looks nothing like RNR. And a chainsaw??? How can HASBRO have lost the rights to Rock N Roll when they were just producing figures with that name last year?
Hasbro drops names because supposedly someone else has the rights yet other companies seem to have no problem using GI JOE names.
Last year there was a batman villain relased called "firefly". How is that possible?
