Chatter for a miniatures game for GI joe is nothing new. I think that within Heroscape, Hasbro could produce a quality line of Minis without having to develop an independent game system.
For those of us who want a GIANT army, including super sized vehicles like a USS Flagg that would actually sit on a table, C 130's, any of the numerous giant Cobra vehicles and robots we saw in the comics and cartoons, this would be a great platform.
And the scale of the army you could build quadruples when the figs are 1/4 the size.
You may now publicly massacre me for suggesting YET another line for GI Joe

Eh, as a recovering warhammer/warhammer 40k addict and current tabletop fanatic (and minis whore) i have to say that this would totally pique my interest, provided the minis can maintain a decent quality...too many of the heroscape minis look like the paint fairy took a dump on them. ideally a joe minis line could be unpainted, or minimally painted, allowing customization. I hated trying to retrofit mageknight and heroclix with new paint jobs because stripping their factory paint jobs became such a chore. even still i would probably drop some coin on a joe minis game if nothing else than to adapt it to tabletop wargaming!

I like this as a way to get vehicles that wouldn't otherwise be made. I too would accept unpainted or minimaly painted miniatures.

I play Star Wars miniatures and the idea of GI Joe minis has come up a few times on the boards for SWM. I'd love to army build some of the troops in that size.

I don't understand why hasn't it been done yet. Two things: a GIJoe miniature game - either like Star Wars (which is just Hasbro behind WOTC) or Heroscape - and GIJoe Attacktix. Seriously, I'm not a hardcore gamer, I can TOTALLY enjoy factory painting, and I'd still put a lot of my toy budget into this. Heck, the old Army Men appeal alone would make it sell like crazy.
