No I would not support the line.
3 3/4" is the only proven line. Stick to that. Even the 12" scale is used sparingly and there's a reason for it.

Long run! What sells more...Small or large? If your thinking bout the kids, ditto? What will PARENTS buy? lots of small, or large?
Answer's pretty obvioso...Long run sales, hands down, smaller scale.

If they were done in realistic style, meaning the body proportions were in scale and not animated looking, and the weapons/gear were realistic(not oversized & action firing junk), which is why I no longer collect the 12 inch figures, I'd give the line a shot.

I would buy 8" classic style Joes, but not at $20. they would have to be in the $12-15 range for me.

The reason I said $20.00 is so they could take the extra few bucks and produce more cloth gear, more weapons and inflation. I can't see them being able to produce a quality 8" figure for less.
I would pay $12.00 for 3 3/4 figures if they came with their weight in weapons and gear. I like quality figures and would be willing to pay for the extras. One of the reasons why I will spend the cash on SideShow Joes.

No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, and lastly NO!
Bad enough Hasbro is wasting time and money putting out the 12" figures, Combat Heroes, and Mighty Mugs crap when those resources could be put towards making more 3 3/4" figures and vehicles. The LAST thing we need right now is the return of a defunct line of Joe figures. If Hasbro wants to release some of the Sigma 6 characters in 3 3/4" scale, like Stone and Machette, then that would be great, but no more other figure lines.

I love the Sigma 6 line, but if it were $20 a pop, it would only be cause Hasbro was taking us to the cleaners. S6 had gear, some guys alot of it at a lower price than that.
I wouldn't play the game though at $20 a piece. $12? yes. $15? Maybe.

Nope, I highly doubt it. Unless they were so irresistable I picked up only my favorite Characters. I did pick up three of the Sigma Six Lines but one was free and the other two were two of my faves. I simply don't have the room or money to collect the larger figures. In my opinion Hasbro is wasting their time on the 12 in line as well. I'd rather they spent more on the 4in line rather than make 8in or 12in figs.

I would buy them. I used to love the Action Force/Gi Joe/Action Man figures they did in 12" in the mid 90's in the UK. The realistic clothes and such were cool. I think they did Duke, Stalker, CC and few others.
HOwever i'd dig a S6 scale figure done in a classic RAH style not the stylized S6 mold.
