I am seeing alot of Joes and Star Wars looking more and more alike. You seeing any of the same molds that Hasbro is using for both Joes and SW??? How about this photo? Look similar?? I think Hasbro is running out of ideas!!!

There are no mold pieces shared between those two figures, though the skirts do share design similarities.
And the mold sharing is nothing new:
An Arc Trooper battlepack used the 03 mini gatling from Spy Troops Roadblock
The Cobra Mountain playset in 2003 was nothing more than a redecorated Star Wars set.

The SpyTroops Crimson Command Copter has Destroyer Droid guns on the front of it.
I'm not 100% sure, but I think the pistol the Diver Baroness and COBRA Diver comes with was originally a cantina alien's gun, but I've not been able to track it down.

At least the company ding this owns the rights to both properties. Otherwise, who really cares? Keep givinf me figures I like, I'll keep buying htem regardless.
Besides, I'm a fan of both Star Wars and GI Joe so I'm good.

Those picture are two molds in every possible way. I see how they are similarly dressed. But mold wise. No. Different molds all the way.

I don't collect Star Wars, so it doesn't bother me - as long as Hasbro can add more diversity to the line while saving money, then it means that we'll get more figures.

Never seen a Camaro and a Firebird side by side have ya' ?
This is nothing new, companies do this all the time with different brands they own to save money.
