HISS Tank.com has just received exclusive images of upcoming G.I. Joe Hall Of Heroes Zartan and Storm Shadow. Keep checking this thread for updated information on the Hall Of Heroes Line as we expect to see images of all 10 figures to be released today.

"The Hall of Heroes not only celebrates what the fans like most in the G.I. JOE vs. COBRA saga,” said Michael Ritchie, Director of Marketing, G.I. JOE, “it is a bridge between the celebration of the storyline’s 25th anniversary and the kick-off to one of the most exciting years ever in the history of G.I. JOE” With induction into the G.I. JOE Hall of Heroes comes a new version of the top ten figures. Each will be released with unique deco and commemorative packaging. The “Hall of Heroes” line will be released in spring 2009."

Shin Densetsu:
The Hall of Heroes: Cobra Viper has been unveiled! Click here to check it out!

Click HERE to see all 10 figures!
kneroh:
Looks expensive.
Cold Slither:
Whoo Hoo! Looks like those hands are fixed no? Can't wait for the rest of 'em! Thanks Destro.
Foolproof:
Beautiful...
Commtech:
Will definitely get one!
Troynos:
So it's the same figure we get in the 5-pack, but in special packaging?

No difference between the two figures?

That's kind of stupid and a big let-down.

No way army building the corrected Viper at this price, damn.

And I'm not a fan of the chrome. Hate it. Makes the figure look stupid IMO.
Bermuda Mohawk:
For that price each!! FORGET IT!! Lame e-tail exclusive. They will be jacked up all over the place, and with shipping costs added, not worth it at all. Way to get the fans excited and involved only to stick it to them in the end.
mister-x:
so, who all is going to be released like this?
is it just a normal card (gold foil) in another box?
if so.....AWESOME!!!
wardamnpjm:
I am not a MOC collector but I will be getting these and keeping them on card in protective cases.A little on the pricey side though.
The Commander:
Will get one, maybe two, but no way i can troop build these
Roadblock Recall:
cheaper than buying multiples of the 5-pack....I'll get a handful of this guy.
Shin Densetsu:

It is hard to tell from the pics, you never know, it might have more detailed paint apps up close, but the boxed pic might obscure it. I don't know. I figure there must be some incentive for getting these figures, a reason that makes fans want these over the previous versions. We'll see.

The packaging looks damn nice. I wasn't expecting anything like that.
The Commander:
oh, and the whole 'Hall of Heroes' voting was a joke anyways...(end nerd anger)
Roadblock Recall:
The rifle seems to be accessory pack colored.
fogger1138:
Hmm, $10-12 seems a bit much...
Banshee:
I'll have to wait for comparison shots between this and the previous Viper. The chrome head looks suspiciously larger. :(

I thought the same thing. I'm thinking the blue helmet might be a separate piece entirely.
Irid70:
I can't say that I am chomping at the bit to buy a Viper with minor tweaks on a gold-foil card for 10-12 bucks when I already have several perfectly serviceable Vipers gotten for half that. Hopefully other Hall of Heroes figures will have further incentive.
artiepants:
Awesome packaging, disappointed about the e-tailer only deal.
Troynos:
If all that's different is paint apps, then it's not worth it. Just another repaint.

Will be majorly disappointed in the Hall of Heroes line if that's the case. I seriously hope there's more to the figures then packaging and rereleases of corrected versions we've already seen.
Troynos:
The e-tailer thing makes complete sense to me. The Hall of Heroes wave is for collector's, not people that play with 'em. So why bother selling those in stores?
Hicks_Royel:
Redundant after the 25th Series... and yet, I'll have a set, I suspect.
Roadblock Recall:
ETA on these?

And the price. Between the two, my purchases of these will be pretty limited, and I wasn't planning on getting the whole set to begin with.
The BLAY:
want him now!!!
Unclassified:
these are sweeet!! cant wait to have these moc.
The Batman:
Oh Great.. let's make excellent figures and put them in boxes and CHARGE OUT THE ASS FOR THEM!!! And then let's make em e-tail exclusives. Stupid Dumbass Morons!!
bigdaddyblue73:
I am perfectly happy with the 25th Viper the way it is now, in fact once the TRU 5 pack comes out I will be army building them--I have 7 of them now. At $10-12 bucks each i won't even touch the "etail" exclusive--especially when you know the TRU Viper army pack is gonna 24.99.
Impossiblepie:
I just realized this, why does a viper with a chrome face plate need black goggles? that doesn't make sense to me.
Ewokhunter92:
ouch. That is very steep for a single figure at retail. Looks like they are going the VOTC route of Star Wars.

The fact it's online only and $10-12, tack on the shipping and most instances taxes, nope.

These are by far the most ridiculous repaints yet.
Jbluez:
Lets see the FLINT! Tell us if it's worth getting the new Joe 5 pack or not.

why does any Viper need goggles, whether it is a chrome face or painted silver?...so Hasbro, the dumbass morons, can stick it to the true fans who've stuck it out until the end and who pay their bills and are rewarded by being raped because the people in charge of running a billion dollar company obviously know nothing about the toy industry! shouldn't that have been obvious.

oh, I almost forgot, worst repaints ever (even though we have only seen on figure and it doesn't appear to be a repaint).
Jeffrozup:
Hasbro hit one out of the park with the packaging for MOC collectors. If the others look the same as this, it will be quite a nice collection to display.
UMAN:
Looks great! But with the price point, I might hold off. We'll see...

lol

I might buy some of these "Hall of Heroes" figures if they are different enough from those released elsewhere. Here is hoping for cartoon colored Flint and Zartan.
Shin Densetsu:
I've said before that I might not be buying the Hall of Heroes figures, as the new 5 packs pretty much do it for me, at a cheaper price. The Hall of Heroes figures have great packaging, and I hope we see more images, with better details. For MOC displays, they can't be beat, but I'm an opener.

what exactly about the Viper do you see as being "crap"?
Jeffrozup:
So these figures will be single carded (like 25th joes) but sold inside a collectors box like the picture shown?

Good point about the MOC displays, I know not everybody collects this way but those who do have to love the way these look.

i hope so i can tell by this pic, but $10- $12 and on lineonly that sucks
darthfoley:
They look great. I doubt I'll buy them at that price point, as I'm not a MOC collector. Still, it's a really nice display for those who want to go that route.
