Dwight Stall at the New Orleans convention said these would be the most articulated GI JOE figures ever.  Old sculpt style, new sculpt style, a combination of the two, who knows.  It's all speculation right now as he didn't give any details.  I assume next month at Toy Fair in NYC, we will find out. I will reserve my comments until I see some pictures before jumping off the deep end like others on certain message boards.  Man, people get worked up for no reason.

You guys DO realize this means we'll get 25 figures this year alone, which is about twice as many as we got in 2006.

25 figure is fine by me.  Hasbro released 18 figures in 2006 (yojoes info is wrong as some of those DTC items were available late in 2005).  So an extra 7 isn't a big deal.

I hope they can be custom-compatible with ARAH and/or JvC. Then I'll be picking up extras...
I'll still be picking up extras if they look awesome, though.

I'm curious too.
If they're supposed to be the most articulated joes , Im really intrigued.

25 figures ? That's cool. Is that an official number?

I've been focusing on my 12" joes for a while (kit bashing and ordering some crazy gear), it will be good to add new troops to the 3 3/4 shelves.

Hasbro's website says 25, so yeah, I'd guess that's pretty official.   :wink:


I CANNOT WAIT to see what Hasbro has up their sleeves for this line-up!  I'm feeling pretty optimistic that it's gonna be an impressive series... Especially since it's about 10 more figures than I would have guessed we'd be getting.

So is Canada  getting any new Joe love or is it back to on line purchases yet again? I've about reached my limit with on line buying. I want to see the guys hanging on the wall in a store dagnammit!  >:(
