2011 Toy Fair: New Images Of The G.I. Joe Figures And Vehicles
Toy Fair: Outsiders - 2011.02.12
HASBRO LAUNCHES NEW G.I. JOE TOY LINE TO CELEBRATE “30 YEARS OF G.I. JOE: A REAL AMERICAN HERO”

After nearly three decades, the G.I. JOE vs. COBRA battle rages on and legions of fans couldn’t be happier. When the fight between these two foes commenced in the early 1980’s – as G.I. JOE: A REAL AMERICAN HERO – it brought the world’s first action figure to life for a whole new generation of fans. To celebrate this milestone, Hasbro (NASDAQ: HAS) is introducing new and updated versions of many fan-favorite characters, vehicles, and play patterns from the past 30 years. Hasbro’s 2011 G.I. JOE line will include the re-launch of 12” A REAL AMERICAN HERO figures, re-imagined versions of classic 3.75” figures and vehicles, and new characters from “G.I. Joe Renegades,” the hit animated series that premiered on the Hub last Fall.

Hasbro invented the action figure category when it launched its G.I. JOE brand more than 45 years ago. The 2011 G.I. JOE line of action figures and vehicles lives up to that legacy with new sculpts showcasing favorite G.I. JOE and COBRA characters. Fans will love adding the new STORM SHADOW, FLINT, and SCARLETT figures, among many others, to their collections and kids will enjoy the characters from the “G.I. Joe: Renegades” program showing up in action figure form.

The brigade of 3.75” figures will have iconic vehicles to add to their arsenal, including a new version of the iconic H.I.S.S. tank and the SKYSTRIKER JET. The original SKYSTRIKER JET, released early in the G.I. JOE vs. COBRA series, has been at the top of fans’ wish lists since it was discontinued in the mid 1980’s. It will come with a 3.75” pilot to help navigate G.I. JOE through treacherous COBRA territory. Also, debuting is the BLACK DRAGON Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL) aircraft taken directly from the new programming.

Firefighter. Police officer. National Guardsman. Marine. These are all actual real-life heroes and Hasbro knows how important real heroes are for kids of all ages. So to help honor the heroes we see and hear about every day, Hasbro has created the 12” A REAL AMERICAN HERO action figure assortment for its 2011 G.I. JOE line. Each figure will have the distinct look of G.I. JOE and will come with authentic gear and apparel to represent both military and civil forces.

The 12” line recruits one final figure to its 2011 ranks: the 12” U.S. Army Paratrooper. This figure will come equipped with a working parachute, gear insignia, and accessories.

Yo Joe!

I like how it seems like it's a good mix of everything this year, while not being too overwhelming for collectors. Last year there wasn't enough; prior years, there was too damn much; this year is just right. Really cool how some are POC based and others are RAH with just a little bit of ren... read more

I've got umpteen million Snake Eyes, Storm Shadows, Dukes and Destro's, but no Sgt. Slaughter and likely no Zarana's because of this idiotic decision to make them "exclusives". Of course, I've yet to see a Shock Trooper anywhere in town either, so it's not exclusive to... read more
