2011 Toy Fair: G.I. Joe Images From The Hasbro Showroom
Images of the G.I.Joe products that were on display at the Hasbro showroom have been uploaded to our IMAGE GALLERY below.
- DePriest is back in charge of the G.I.Joe Brand and thanks are looking good. 2012 will be the 30th Anniversary of the Joe Vs Cobra mythos. A lot of things happening in 2012 so they are starting earlier to celebrate. 30th for 35th. 30 items celebrating this landmark anniversary, 12" are back as well. Brand New look, it will be tightly focused for collectors.
- The 12" figures will be kid targeted and be more military not Joe Vs. Cobra oriented.
- Hasbro has listened to fans on the 3.75 line-up for this line.
- Look for a new look for the line, G.I.Joe, Cobra, Renegades will be in one assortment but the differences in the line will be reflected on the cardbacks. So you will know which ones are Renegades.
- Haek, Cobra Trooper looks to be female from the image shown, Steel Brigade, Blowtorch, Jungle BAT and Cobra Commander will be in wave 3 Spring and be on the POC cardbacks. These look like ARAH figures except for Hawk. Lots of accessories.
- Wave 1 of Fall will see the debut of Renegades. Firefly, Techno Viper, Hazard Viper, Cobra Commander, Snake-Eyes and Duke. These will not be done in animated style like say Clone Wars. So they match the animated stylings but using the existing tools though they are creating new tools as well. Basically they will have the costumes of Renegades but be done in 25th/POC style.
- Vehicles Black Dragon Vtol, Crimson Hiss Tank, Vamp.
- 25th Anniversary style Skystriker will be on shelves Fall 2011. Looks like the original. Comes with ACE. It is retooled. It will hold 1 figure, not 2 because they couldnt make it to hold 2 of the new figures.No Parachute either.
- Comic Con will be a Transformers/GIJoe Starscream Skystriker with Cobra Commander and Megatron blaster. Doesn't Transform, just a redeco of the regular Skystriker.
- There will be more stuff for this 30 for 35th anniversary line later this year.
- Zanya and Zarana will be offered as a SDCC exclusive set.
