ROC was a failure. by this i mean they didnt make enough figs, vehicles to back the movie. they even had to cancel a wave of vehicles. the figs looked like crap and the spring loaded gimmick was a waste of space. the movie was hit & miss.
yes it made a quick buck for a few months. now they are the same figs on the pegs that have been there since day 1 of the new line. they didnt think far enough ahead.
poc might be coming but it wont be out for a while. so what will keep the masses coming back to buy NEW joes if there is nothing new to buy.
While the collectors know stuff is coming but we are getting sick of the dukes,SE,CC,SS& destros. Hasbro has so many charters in the line up they can make but they dont. and that is what kills the line. who the hell wants 49 figs of se come on.
what is the point we all have are minds made up on what is what. the lines has been drawn. If hasbro dosent get there act together there wont be a line left. they need to stick with 1 group of guy to run the line. stick with them more then a few yrs.
if this keeps up i would rather see the line die and come back in a few yrs then deal with this.
The way to save it is give us 2 lines 1 for the collectors 1 for there greed. so simple even a cave man can do it.

Just gives a company an excuse to charge more for a product that might or might not be generic.
I was on Hasbro's toy store site the other day and ordered the second Joe 5 pack. you know, the one with the good looking Lady Jaye. I didnt have Flint, or Hawk yet so these 2 would be a welcome addition. I can use Shipwreck for a custom, and a ninja version of Snake Eyes....fine.
But as I'm scrolling thru their product list.
something caught my eye that REALLY pisses me off.
Hasbro sell pre graded versions of some of their regular figures for about 50 bucks each!
So to say that Hasbro doesnt keep collectors in mind is false.
They do keep us in mind and is always trying to figure ways to get us to spend more money.
Than theres always the "limited edition" figures.
rememebr when they first got the rights to Marvel Legends?
They repainted a Wolverine figure silver and released it as a limited collectors edition figure.
Sounds like someone at Hasbro is taking ideas from 90s Todd Macfarlane.

i would love it if there were a whole new gijoe team saving the world from a whole new enemy but you could keep destro because well because people need weapons but seriously
hasbro stop recycling the 80ies why not take these brands into the future because 25 years of optimus vs megatron/ duke vs cobra commander is kinda stale imo. what happened in the 80ies i feel created whole new universes filled with a gabillion stories and characters to draw from. so how about giving these kids their own generation of gijoe and transformers
thats my rant

Hasbro hates you
Diogenes, one of the better known proponents of the school of Cynics, was often seen to be strolling about with a lamp in broad daylight and when asked what it was for, he would reply "I'm looking for an honest man."
