I can't make out what it says on her forehead:  --FE?  It looks like it says LIFE.  I'm guessing it's some type of mark to identify non-sale pre-production items, but what an odd place to put it!

Sweet Pictures!  I hope I can get both versions!

What does the "HFE" stand for?

Never would've guessed that's an "H". No idea what it stands for, if indeed it is an "H".
Love the shout to Cold Slither, neutral on the figures.

I could be wrong but I've bought figures directly from China before and they had some writing on the heads, usually a couple of letters. Not sure if they are someone's initials or from an early product run. Either way, they looked a lot like those letters shown here. Also, the right side of her head, besides the stars looks like whatever that is is carved or melted into the head plastic. Look how it breaks her right eyebrow on th classic version.

Chances are the finished product will have the little stars on the side on the face and that's all.

Yeah, very cool.  Hope this doesn't sky rocket.  Somebody at joe con said something about knowing the demand would be much higher for this and the skystriker, but the higher ups would not increase the numbers accordingly.  So it sounds like a big rip off coming.

Hi Turner. Didn't they learn anything after last year's complaints about not making enough Sgt. Slaughter figures? Hasbro has to know that Zarana will be a popular figure. Fans have been asking for her for years. It would make way more sense to release an exclusive Zarana (black outfit) at the comicon and then release the traditional Zarana at retail. It would be a sure thing. Instead, we get tons of Dukes, Storm Shadows and frozen Destros haunting the pegs at stores where I live. News flash: fans bought the figures they wanted and no one is going to buy the rest. And that will just make retailers wary of restocking shelves with new figures. It makes me wonder, is Hasbro even trying to sell GI Joe???
