If Hasbro scrapped the 4" line again, in favor of a new 6" one, would you support it?
It wouldnt be the Sigma sculpts.
If it had the same detail and points of articulation as PoC/30th.
Used Atkins IDW designs.
Keep the the line small at first, 6-8 Joes, 4 antagonists (Cobra, Red Shadows, SKAR, Iron Grenaders ect.)
Small vehicles ("RAM", "Mirage", "Night Landing") at first.
No more "Waves" and go back to letting the assortment run a good part of the year (6-8 months) to help cut down on peg warmers. It will also give people time that like to troop build.
Include the "foot lockers" and gear from each version of that character. (web gear, vests, guns etc.)
Im torn on suggesting a price point, since the 4" lines are going at 10$, and the Marvel Select/Build a Figures are going for 22$, but a Barbie runs about 16$.
As far as who the line should be, of course Duke, SE
and CC are gonna be in it. But there are characters like Gung Ho that havent shown up in the IDW books yet.
I tossed around Movie/Resolute/Renegades cast in my head, but that would put it over my initial suggestion of 12 total.
I was thinking on 3 different line ups.
1. 8 Joes starting from '83. 2 from that year, then 1 from each up til '89.
2. Dukes team from IDW #0. Duke, Flint, Torpedo and Beachhead plus Roadblock, Ripcord, Lady Jaye and Hawk.
3. An original line up from "Hot Potato. Rock N Roll, Stalker, Snake Eyes, Scarlett, Hawk and Clutch plus Breaker and Grunt.
As far as who they are up against, I was thinking Vipers, or Troopers/Officers with extra Viper gear.
Cobra Commander with both the Hood and Battle helmet.
What do you think? Any other ideas to add?
