Toy Fair 2011 Hasbro G.I. Joe Presentation LIVE!

Welcome to live info from Hasbro's Toy Fair 2011 Presentation. There is a powerpoint showing going on right now, and they are flashing images of figures that have been seen or will be seen today a little later on. They will be doing Star Wars, G.I. Joe and then Transformers.

Check out Toyark.com for Star Wars and Marvel updates and TFW2005.com for Transformers.

We will update text information from this presentation right here in this post. Please refresh to check for new updates.

Getting ready.....

2012 is 30th Anniversary. Start 30th anniversary in fall of 2011. 30 for 30. 30 products for 30 years, best of best.

New line look. collector focused. 12 inch back. exclusives.

very concentrated, collector focus.

3 card backs on aug 1st. Classic GI Joe cards. Classic Cobra Cards. Renegades Cards. Classic has pixelated explosion. Blue them for Joe. Red for Cobra.

Renegades cards show toon art.

Showing figs. Hawk, Ropper,Steel Brigade with lotsa gear, Cobra Commaander, new mold. Jungle BAT - WOAH. Troop Builders is focus. Blowtorch, similar to 25th deco. Cant tell about mold.

Crazy Legs, Croc Master blue / yellow.

RENEGADES FIGURES - Visual style - NOT ANIME. Little different. But use existing set of tools, some mold reuse. Can most likely fit with modern era stuff.

HAZARD VIPER.

Vehicles, Hiss Tank again,

30th anniversary - SKYSTRYKER, reissue, 25th Figure. Fall 2011.

Original mold lost. New mold. Very true to original. Cockpit fits 1 figure. Comes with Ace, no parachute.

12 inch, very kids targeted. Rapid Strike, First Responder Firefighter, Army Heavy Gunner, Police K9. Parachute Figure. Not JVC

SKYSTRIKER REPAINTED AS G1 STARTSCREAM WTFFFFFFFFFFf

Comes with Cobra Commander in flight suit, who is holding gun mode G1 MEGATRON!!

SDCC exclusive.


Renegades - cartoon team is on stage. Showing clips.

Tomax and Xamot showing up on upcoming ep. They are spiritual guys, created the "Crimson Guard', its the joes, action ensues!

QNA - Have a 3 year arc in mind. Will continue meeting future Joes and cobras along the way. Some may come back down the road.

Focus is on young kids too, so stories like Duke / Scarlett / Snake Eyes have to be implied without going there.

Want to show them grow, not be perfect team immediately.

So, with Mindbender, they are trying to imagine how did a purple vest wearing bald monocle dude come to be. He was a cocky, prissy spoiled brat styled guy like the Renegades guy is. Just an interpretation they had since they needed to get him younger in the show anyway.

Hint at any upcoming characters. Might need to go places where there are "SNOW". Or need to go on a "BOAT" that you don't want to WRECK. Parrot joke afterwards.

Hehehe he just said....

Animation style...

50s magazines, paintings. Used as starting point. Lots of painted backgrounds. Selling a mood. Talking about designer that just passed away. Worked on show until the end. Hadn't worked on an animated show prior. Showing tribute to CLEM.

And that seems to be it! Check out TFW2005.com for Transformers starting now!

Wouldn't now be "well before then?" ;)

It seems odd that they're starting on a Sunday. Doesn't Toy Fair usually go from Friday-Monday like most trade shows and conventions and such?

Also, anyone know when Mattel's event is? (I thought they do a separate "collector's event" like Hasbro does).
Troynos:
Mattel's is Sunday at 3. I'll be there.

And yes, it's seperate like Hasbros.

Hasbros is in an entirely different building from Toy Fair.

TF starts on Sunday. Hasbro's is on Saturday, at least their action figure lines.
Scroll142:
have fun everyone, thanks for sharing those that can.

PoC Toys
30th Anniversary for ARAH
Naked pictures of C.I.A.D.
The Return of Mask

Hasbro, you can choose to remove 1 thing from this list, if it's not the naked pics, you are dead to me....

I got some $3.50 for the set!
Sergeant Major:
$3.50 is gouging. I'll sell the same set for $3.25 + $0.25 handling.

I don't think I'd want them after you've "handled" them.
steve_smmr:

It takes decades to goes away, in part because it manages to generate some cash. Not enough, but just enough.

well, i'll admit i'm extra bitter since my real name is Steve Sommer (sans the 's'). you can understand my rage.
WeaponXCustoms:
Ive never been more nervous for a toyline. Seeing the next waves of Joe figures is going to be highly disappointing, or very exciting.

if POC so far is any indication, i think there will be equal parts excitement AND disappointment.

But that's what makes them awesome...scratch and sniff!
Saboteur:
So much for the notion that filming would start this year, with a movie in 2012. The 'plan' is for 2013.

g i joe rise of cobra 2009.
g i joe 'the sequel' maybe 2013.

ouch.
The Batman:
I don't know why everyone is so hyped about the movie. It's just gonna be a continuation of SUCKAGE like the first one.
SteelBrigade:
Want to see Jurrasic Park Joes, and a new 3.75 WWE line of figures. Good sculpting and no action features.

oh heavens no. don't let the facts like the negative press and response from the first film, a 4 year drought, different writers and a different director bring you to that sort of conclusion.

Don't let the fact that the writers have already said it's a sequel, at least two cast members are still confirmed as returning, or that we've never had a "reboot" inside a timeframe of less than 5 years outside of the James Bond franchise (which is an entirely different animal) disabuse you of your desperate hope that they aren't making a sequel.

We did get two separate Punisher movies 4 years apart.

Wasting your time.
steve_smmr:
i'm mainly just playing around.... but i really wouldn't be that shocked at a reboot OR a sequel. both seem plausible. do i personally want a reboot? sure.

Fine, I'll concede. Still don't think we're getting a reboot.

If the studio doesn't think the first movie was successful enough to do a sequel, they're sure as hell not likely to think a reboot is a better idea. Clearly "brand recognition" (which would be the only thing a reboot would have going for it since they'd be ditching all their marketable stars and clearly aren't looking for a big-name director) wasn't enough the first go-round. Why would it be the second? I doubt Renegades has been THAT big of a hit.

I completely agree with you, for the record.
steve_smmr:
are stars marketable if they're horrid 'actors' and people don't like them?

i just peed alittle

Don't confuse general audiences with fans. There are a lot of people that like Channing Tatum (see: The fact that he keeps getting cast as the lead in movies), and Joseph Gordon-Levitt has been getting Oscar buzz this year. Even Marlon Wayans has plenty of fans.

It's just that most of Channing Tatum and Marlon Wayans' fans don't fall into the "GI Joe geek" demographic, and that GI Joe wasn't the kind of movie they're usually in (though clearly Tatum's trying to cross into action/adventure films).

For the record, (though I've said it before) I thought Tatum was by far the worst thing about RoC. But that won't change a studios' mind about him if they think he'll get some butts into seats (in his case, particularly teenage female butts).

I'll also note that Tatum's young and there's a chance his acting can improve. The 15 seconds or so I've seen of him in "The Eagle" previews looks better than his entire performance in RoC. So there may be some Directorship to blame, too.
