I have to admit I hate the idea of Greenshirts in the comic and/or the cartoon. I think there are more than enough named Joes that Greenshirts aren't needed in those mediums. Unless they happen to be in the background guarding the instillation or handling support duties.
But, as toys, I like them. I use them in places I don't want to use a named Joe, like gunner stations on vehicles, guard positions, manual labor, etc...
My Greenshirts manning different areas around the ROCC.
I know there are plenty of classic Joes we'd all like to see first, but I think there is room for more Greenshirts.
We already have the basic cartoon Greenshirt, but I'd like to see the following:
1) Desert Greenshirts (Brownshirts?)
Easy way: Same Greenshirts we have except with brown pants and tan shirts.
I'd rather see Dusty bodies w/ different heads.
2) Urban/Night Greenshirts (Blackshirts?)
Easy way: Same Greenshirts we have except with black pants and gray shirts.
I'd rather see Comic Pack Firefly bodies (including the vest) in black w/ different heads w/ knit caps. Use black helmets if it costs too much to add knit caps to existing heads.
3) Arctic Greenshirts (Whiteshirts?)
Snow Job bodies w/ different heads. Use Parka Snake-Eyes backpacks.
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.
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'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.
How does everybody else feel about Greenshirts?
Looking for at reasonable prices:

The Greenshirts 4+1 pack was a cool nod to the cartoon from Hasbro. I like your ideas for diffrent enviornments greenshirts.
Should just buy what's out and paint them since they're overflowing at some TRUs in Los Angeles.

Greenshirts are to Joe what the blueshirt troopers are to Cobra, which are sort of like redshirts to Star Trek. Although some of us would buy them it probably wouldn't be marketable enough for Hasbro to go through the trouble. Not everyone army builds, and that's the primary consumer for these packs.
It would be great to see greenshirt or named Joe packs to go along with the Arctic or desert cobra troop builders.

I finally found my first greenshirt set today and someone had replaced firefly with nemesis enforcer...

Why trade Nemesis Enforcer for that Firefly?

HMM. Greenshirts were cool, but to be honest I think we were lucky to get what we got. While, I'd love to see a few generic sailors or w/e to man my varuious sea,land and air vehicles I just don't think it's going to happen.
Great idea though.
Oh and I'd love to see a Green Shirt, Sailor, Desert Trooper, artic trooper -vs- random cobra 5 pack.

Personally I have no use for them. I might get the set for a few checkpoint guards or something but there are more than enough real Joes.
