2012 GI Joe Basic Figure Repaints

GI-Joe-Basic-Repaints
Joedeclassified has posted images of variants of the recently revealed Basic GI Joe Figures. Mere repaints sure, but 1 can be looked at as a 30th anniversary Cobra Officer in Cobra Trooper colors, while the repaint of Ninja Force Storm Shadow is a completely different character. Figures shown are:We've mirrored the relevant imagery, check out the new repaints after the jump!

Steevy Maximus:
So, after rocking our socks with the first look at this summer's "discount Joes", Gyre viper posts new pics...of variants of those figures:
JoeDeclassified.com • View topic - !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

New sculpt nostalgia!
Storm Shadow is now some other ninja guy
Snake Eyes evokes his "heavy artillery" 2005 release (I like it)
Duke is now gray (great for the cartoon breaker customs)
Shipwreck is green
and both Cobra Commander and the Trooper sport comic-pack inspired colors.

Oh, and he has pics of that Kwinn guy, looking VERY complete
spiderpumpkin:
Someone at Hasbro knows how to market figures.
luigi:
i still hope they make it to us retail
Fast_Draw:
Weird. Gimme Kwinn already lol.
ndb:
Oooohhh boy, here we go. Green Snake Eyes? Do want!
Xenos:
Green Snake Eyes looks really cool.
Creamsicle Storm Shadow isn't that great, but I'll probably end up getting him since he almost sorta looks like T'Ginzu.
Gray Duke is fine, but I don't know what I would use him for.
Blue CC is useless.
Green Shipwreck will make for a good army builder to go with green Duke.
Blue CObra Officer is a horrible disappointment to me. I just don't understand why Hasbro constantly puts out "comic colored" Cobra Troops. If they had made this guy the same color of blue as the 30th Cobra Soldier and gave him a silver sigil, I would have bought every one I saw. As it is, I don't know if I will get any.
Owner of a Lonely B.A.T.:
Hasbro.

I HATE YOU.

I mean that in the best possible way.
ero:
And then they had to go and kill the buzz ...

Repaints of repaints? Do not approve.

Except! Duke. Because I'm thinking he might be as close as we ever get to a cartoon Grunt.

same unless i get to see these in retail
Odinsdad:
For me blue officer gets black officer's webgear, black officer gets yellow webgear, kid gets black officer with yellow webgear and everyone parties.

..of course I have to FIND these guys first...

Good luck to everybody!
Noga87:
I love it!!!!!
Mermaniel:
Gyre you son of a bitch. I want all those. Especiallly Kwinn.
Beckley:
Wow!
CobraCrimson:
Same as the first batch of 6, I want one of each for my MOC collection and then maybe some of the blue Officers but not sure with yellow gear.

The blue CC I could use for Crimson Guard Cadets with just a head/helmet swap! I have been doing this with the 25th comic pack CC just like this version and taking the head, cape and belt off and tossing CG (painted blue & black mask) heads/helmets and black CG belts on them to make my Cadets.

These repaints look like they are more intended for customizers and army builders than anything else.


Don't think Kwinn is getting this "dollar store" type release though, with Gyre's pics he posts, this Kwinn could be a store exclusive or in with wave 4 or 5 of the Retaliation single carded figs since he mixes SDCC, con, cancelled, etc. with regular protos and stuff.
RogueWingnut:
Gentlemen, the game is back ON.
Cobraoner:
pheeewww .. for a second I thought those were real .. Oh, gyre. you and your fake gi joes ! ;)
CobraCrimson:
Gyre is G.I.Joe GOD! His simple pics he has posted the last couple of days have stirred more interest and desire for the stuff than anything Hasbro has done for Retaliation period!

Given the cards say 2011 on them and they are heading directly to dollar stores does not bode well for this dream.

I have a feeling these got dumped by some retailer and thats why they are heading to dollar stores like the friggen TONS of Avatar figuress I am finding right now as I hunt these down. I have a really bad feeling these will be hard to find and given these variants? I am only interested in the black troopers, black ccs, 1 blue/grey/black SE and 1 Black and WHite Storm shadow with a handful of Grunts in green. Dont need the rest and I am sure the ones i want will be the f'in rare variants....this is starting too look really bad again lol...I hope we get flooded with these everywhere, its the only hope I have left...
gruppenfuhrer88:
Huh, interesting.......
Gyre-Viper:
Kwinn is NOT a discount figure hahahaha.

Loving Kwinn's head sculpt. Aren't you?
DarkHorse:
I like that green SE.

The dates on the backs of cards and vehicles are usually not the year they get released in but the year after, unless they are released late in the year. Look on the backs of some of any other year Joe carded figures, they don't always match the year they physically got released at retail in.

i am really hoping that "the dollar store thing" is just fan boy histria with them making the cards smaller and having less accessories with them
hope that this will be at retail
maybe they'll run it next to retaliation stuff but that me being all optimistic and stuff

not talking about release times/dates, i am talking about when they had to be made to get that kind of date on the card. Had to been earlier in 2011 or the printing would say 2012 me thinks. My MiB3 figures all say 2012 on em. And all of my 30th anni figus say 2011 so they had to be last years product. Even the Noks/Maruaders packs from BBTS are 2011.
Drawing Heat:
That trooper is too blue. Gotta paint those gloves,boots,mask etc. I'm liking that Shipwreck though.
the odinson:
the goggled custom master strikes again! he sculpted a freaking kwinn, the sneak!


his paint apps need touching up.

You, sir, are a magnificently, diabolical, bastard!


:p
xSwamiJayx:
fake.
Dem_Yoe'z!:
Wow! So much for not having any new Joes to look forward to. Between these 2 sets of discount Joes and the club's con set, I'm set!

I wonder if this means Kwinn will be the FSS 13th figure?

just kidding soon i hope
GI Guppy the third:
TGin Zu... not cool guys. not cool
manic mailman:
wow those are cool. i want all of that
especially blue shipwreck tho
fireflyguy:
I really like that SE and the Duke. Even the Shipwreck looks pretty cool. I like the blak Cobra Trooper better than the repaint, and I still don't care for CC or SS.

The Kwinn looks cool. I might shoot for him, but I'm not 100% on him yet.

I REALLY REALLY like that Soundwave, but I can't afford to get the whole Shockwave HiSS just to get that. I hope someone ends up casting it or something.
Mermaniel:
Kwinn is one of the best looking figures I've seen. the details are just perfect. I really hope they release him somewhere...sometime.

other than him, I just want the Black Night Watch officer and IDW Shipwreck. Green Variant as well. Looks dope and great custom fodder.
Nirvana:
I've been wanting an OG Grey Joe body since the 25th line started. FINALLY!
MeLikeJinx:
Oh crap... sh*t just got real. That Shipwreck variant is so bought. The other variants just make the cooler regular versions harder to find IMO.
gyrapados:
I think the only figure I'll be looking to get will be the black cobra troopers. And Kwinn, though I know he isn't part of this line.
CrimsonGuard101:
Just noticed...What kinda chaps my ass is the fact that Kwins upper torso, chest and arms+hands ended up on Footloose lol...damnit oh well I would have rather had footloose then Kwinn if i had ot get down in the dirt and fight about it
Dolemite:
Um...people? Are we forgetting something? Kwinn is supposed to be a BIG FAT GUY. That figure looks a little too slim and trim to me to be a credible Kwinn to me.

Don't get me wrong, I'll take Kwinn however I can, but surely they could have made the body a little pudgier, amirite?

America is too obese for an obese Kwinn..sends the wrong message.

That's a good point. I don't remember Kwinn being so "slim and trim" as you say. Hmm.

I think the accessories will bulk him up.
Cobra Terrorist:
Man, the progression of events here seem really weird to me (I wasn't around for all the pre-ROC reveals).

The movie line is about to drop, but they're about to crank out a bunch of concurrent discount-store figs - that we all want more?
