"Q) In the last Q&A, you stated that the Pursuit of Cobra would hit stores in "the back half" of 2010. Does that mean the products shown at Joecon last year as part of the Pursuit of Cobra theme have been delayed? Or is that product still considered "Rise of Cobra" product and will still ship in the first half of the year, with a full "rebranding" in the later half with product that hasn't yet been unveiled (and probably won't until Toy Fair)?
A) The Pursuit of Cobra (POC) themed items will be released in fall 2010 and will replace The Rise of Cobra. Much of the product shown at JoeCon in 2009 is being adapted to the POC theme and will launch in fall 2010 with a never before seen packaging line look. This new look will be revealed over the next few months. The Rise of Cobra figures and packaging will no longer be shipped in fall 2010."
So I guess there will be another "re-branding" from the movie line. I wonder if any of the "leaked" card art that has been popping up is legit?
