I agree with all of these:
1) Desert Greenshirts (Brownshirts?)
Mostly, because we are in a desert war now, it might be more marketable.
3) Arctic Greenshirts (Whiteshirts?)
Couldn't hurt since Hasbro seems to favor artic stuff for some reason?
4) Navy Greenshirts (Saltshirts?)
Easy way: Shipwreck bodies with different heads w/ sailor caps and new hands. Include life jackets and use white helmets if it costs too much to add sailor hats to existing heads.
Like Topside? I like the white helmet idea more than using Shipwrecks cap. But you gotta add in the gloved fist for that drunken sailor varient??
5) Pilot Greenshirts (Flyshirts?)
Easy way: SRO Ace bodies with different heads. Put in a mix of fighter pilot helmets and helicopter pilot helmets.
I couldn't agree more. I'd like them to differentiate between NAVY and USAF pilots though. Finally get me a pilot for my A-10 and pilots for my X-19.
I'd also like to see more of a military Greenshirt as well, and get rid of the Snow Job rifle and put in M-4's, a SAW, and backpacks. Use boonie hats instead of helmets.
They have a good mold for a SAW. I got one today.
I wish they would use more packs too.

I'm amazed that they're overflowing in some places, I've only seen the one box, but have seen several of the CG sets but almost no greenshirts. I'd have loved to see a black, asian, hispanic, whatever ethnicity man mixed in with the greenshirts, I feel like it would make the head reuse more tolerable if the skin-tone were changed. And really, why couldn't they have used the Stalker/Snake Eyes arms instead of the infernal Duke arms?!? I feel like they would have looked better that way and we would have been spared those arms yet again.

I'd pay for a set of DDP greenshirts. They're so much cooler than the Sunbow greenshirts.

Navy Greenshirts (I would call them Sea Shirts) I would get a couple of packs for the day that I actually get a FLAGG again

The Navy Greenshirts idea reminds me of the old Sears catalog picture of the Flagg. They had like 50 Shipwreck's manning the thing.
For those who hate the Greenshirts because they think Joe is an elite unit and wouldn't have trainees, why not just consider these as regular army? That's probably what I'll do. I've seen dio stories where GI Joe interacts with regular army, and I figure it would be good to have some decent figures from Hasbro to enact similar stories. That way you wouldn't have to use PTE or generic figures (which while good in some regards, aren't at the same level as the 25th figure style).

Well I like the greenshirt. I think of them as recuits. G. I. Joe finds the best of the best, the most elite troopers. And Beachhead and Snake eyes make them better, until they become Joes and learn all that they need to know to survive, they do drills and grunt work. Guard doors, Patrol the parameter at night, wash the vehicals, or clean all the weapons. as for different type greenshirts I like the Urban and Arctic sets the most. Urban for Nightwatch, Arctic for when they are being trained by snowjob.
