G.I.Joe Question & Answers With Hasbro Round 5
: Jay Cochran - 2008.12.01
TNI: How will the 25th Anniversary Dr. Mindbender figure be released, on single card, comic pack, in a vehicle or some other way?
Hasbro: It is too early to reveal where and when you will see Dr. Mindbender.
TNI: Why is Hasbro selling AFA figures on HTS at very high prices? How and who sets these prices and how are they being justified at such high values for figures that are currently being sold at mass market?
Hasbro: Hasbro Toy Shop is selling AFA graded figures because there is a specific market for these items. These prices are set by the HTS team working with the brand team, AFA, and looking at the market.
TNI: Will we get a Leatherneck figure in his traditional green camo outfit or will the desert version be it?
Hasbro: There is currently no plan for a green Leatherneck.
TNI: Why wasn't the Quick Kick figure in the DVD pack given ankle articulation; it seems like a chacacter that specializes in karate would be the perfect pick for this?
Hasbro: The ankle articulation would have given the foot a bad break in the flesh (like the Duke arms that the fans did not like) and the design team wanted to deliver a great looking foot for a character who is named Quick Kick.
TNI: With so much arctic stuff being released for both Joe and Cobra, will Joe be getting some type of arctic vehicle released like the Snowcat?
Hasbro: Nothing we can annouce yet..but it is possible in the future.
