I'd like to be in on this too. Perhaps this new subject deserves a new thread. Now it's a call to action, and not just us bitching about it.hahah

Fellow Tankers the time has come for action. Many of us have emailed hasbro for varying reasons but now comes, as the emmenint cancelation of the 25th/modern classics line looms on the horizon we must band together and let HASBRO know we will not stand for this. As such Tracker, a fellow tank who had this idea, and myself will be hand writing letters to the following address;1. How do I contact Hasbroís Investor Relations department?
At Hasbroís corporate headquarters in Pawtucket, just north of Providence in Rhode Island.
The mailing address is:
1027 Newport Avenue
Pawtucket, RI 02862-1059
Now given the department you are writing to that heading may need to change but i am writing to all the different areas and people in hasbro to express my disconent with their decision to cancel the modern classics only only give us movie figures. I will not be happy with "just exclusives to stores" as scalpers will jump on these like cannibals on an unweary explorer. I want a regular issued line in stores with more space and exposure. Any who feel the same i encourage you as well to write actual letters to as many departments of hasbro as you see fit. YOOOOOOOOOOO JOOOOOOOOOOOOEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!

arent they just releasing the new figures just with different packaging? Like in the movie styling or like the star wars "saga" line?

I dont think they are canceling. Just concetrating on crappy movie toys but once that fades the 25th line will continue.
Anything but to face ourselves as we are...

Movie toys are going to be just as good as the 25th. Some updated looks, yes, but they are still going to be the same quality, construction, and will be just as nice, I have no doubt.

Yeah, where exactly are you guys getting your news that Hasbro is canceling the Joe line?
It's line itself is being put on hold while they focus on the movie stuff, and they already said the movie line will be the same style of figure as we are already getting, so I am not understanding where this is coming from.
I'm almost certain we will see other non movie characters in this line, and maybe a few surprises.
And I am sure once the movie excitement fades away, we will be returned to our "Modern Era" figures.
I'm not trying to bash you, but we seem to keep having different threads about this subject for a few months now, they seem to come in waves.
I am not saying don't write to Hasbro, I'm pretty sure they would love to hear that people love the "Modern Era" figures.
To me, they are just changing the cards, and we will see a lot of movie figures, movie inspired figures, and a lot of other cool stuff in the line.
It's not like they are taking the "Modern Era" style away, and giving us crappy T-Crotch action attack features.
It's still going to be G.I. Joe and Cobra, just not as we are used to.

If you are at all familiar with Large corporations... you would see that Investor Relations will do absolutely ZERO with your requests. Sure you might get a nice polite note back thanking you for your interest in the Brand... but thats it.
Their job is to deal with the large brokerages, and act as a director of the financial message prepared by the CFO/CEO. They have ZERO to do with product development or cancellation.
Want to know whom to talk to?? The guys that work for Hasbro that were at the Con... They are the one's whom work directly with this property... and it seems that the minds whom count have already made a decision.
I would also guess that they do not have the staffing or the factory setting capable of supporting the two lines at the same time (Movie and Classic).
