NO NEVER ABSOLUTELY NOT!!!!
IF HASBRO DOES THIS IT IS UTTERLY UNFORGIVABLE!!!!
Please stick with what made the line great the 3 3/4 inch (now 4 inch) figures. The classic characters and styles are what we all want.

Im gonna put a big HELL NO!!! on this one. I never cared for the sigma toy designs as they had that goofy big hand head and feet and imperpotionate body and gimicky weapons. and at 20 bucks?!! christ like joes aren't expensive enough? leave them in their current scale. Even the 12 inch joes are a waste.

I would want straps instead of molded soft plastic. Soft plastic works well for smaller figures, but for bigger figures, actual straps are good and step up the sense of realism, for example if they are used on things like belts and bandoliers.
I would want the weapon/storage lockers from Sigma 6 retained, only changed to reflect either RAH or the movie logo, hell I want figures from both in 8" realistic style!
Also, this time around, more clothes as opposed to molded clothing. Nothing too baggy or too tight. For example v1 Storm Shadow from Sigma 6 looks great with the cloth vest from the jetpack Storm Shadow. I'd like to see all new accessories and weapons. During Sigma 6 one of the big debates was whether or not Duke's switchfire weapon system was better than Flint's. Had the line not died early, maybe Flint's weapon would have received more swappable components. It was a great aspect of the line.
I'm all for it.

I voted yes, but the price would need to be more like $15. I have a bunch of S6 figs and like em. I didnt like how they changed some characters looks but did like changes and updates to others. Alot of ppl complain about S6 changing this or whatever but nothing is as bad as Crhis Ecc as Destro. I have said this alot but I just cant get over it.
I'm just a kid with adult responsabilties.

I like the 8" body style and I wish the Joe Team would put out a few RAH style figures to test the waters.
Destro - New Classic style head with remolded arms that look like the original only the weapons are removable. New Red and Black cloth gear that looks just like the DVD Battle Pack Destro including the red leg holster with classic gun.
V1 B.A.T. - Again use the new B.A.T. as a model and upgrade the functions. Spring loaded claw, spinning drill bit, light up flame thrower.
Duke - Yeah I know................ But really if they updated the head sculpt gave him the original uniform with updated weapons: Removable clips on guns, cloth gear ect........... I would buy it.
Snake Eyes: I know I'm going to hear it for this one but............... The original V1 Sigma 6 Snake Eyes is BAD ASS! I'm sure a ton of the 3 3/4 hard core have never purchased a S6 figure before. This would be the one I would recommend. It really needs no improvements above a few new paint aps. I would simply re-package this figure with small updates, More weapons basically.
Also add the better articulation joints that came with the later release figures to all of these.
Since there are normally only 4 per wave this would be my picks.

NEVER. No interest in anything other than 3 3/4. They could be giving them away and I wouldn't take them.

I vote yes especially if the price point was at $15 over $20. The awesome thing about the S6 figures was the gear, and if that continued with an ARAH line I would be all over it. I also like the ball joint construction of the figures the 12inch figures feel floppy and cheap.
Destro - I fully agree with your wave 1 line up, it is a good start of a core group of characters.
