The Hasbro/Devil's Due G.I.Joe Fan's Choice Figure Pack Poll Update
: Jay Cochran - 2004.10.14
A few weeks ago, we told you that the folks at Devil's Due had teamed up with Hasbro to run a poll where YOU
could vote to decide which characters (based on their appearance from the G.I. Joe Comic) from Devil's Due would be made into a comic book figure 3-pack from Hasbro. Since then, many people have asked us about the sculpting style for these figures: Classic Real American Hero (RAH) style sculpts (like the ones used for the current comic 3 packs based on the Marvel Comic series now released from Hasbro) or the modern style sculpts (like the ones released in the current Valor vs. Venom line)? We asked the folks at Hasbro this question, and they tell us they will be using modern figures.
We also decided to go through each of the issues Devil's Due has selected for their poll and take actual scans of the charaters they have listed for you to vote on. It should be noted that in several of the issues the characters appear to have differences (ex. Hawk's uniform or more than one type of Coil Trooper in issue 23). We even had to go to issue #23 to find a picture of Overlord cause we could not find him in issue #22. So, we don't know for sure if the characters in these scans are exactly how they would appear in figure form if they win the poll. This is just to give you a general idea of who the characters actually are. So without further ado, here are the scans.
Issue 1: Scarlet, Crimson Guard, Duke in Suit
Issue 4: Mistress Armada, Alexander McCullen (With Removeable Mask), Cobra Soldier
Issue 6: Storm Shadow, Zartan, Zanya
Issue 16: Spirit, Cover Girl, Hanibal
Issue 22: Serpentor, Overlord, Roadblock
Issue 23: Lady Jaye, Mercer, Hawk
Issue 24: Coil Trooper, Zandar, Firewall
Issue 25: Overkill, Firefly, Outback
Issue 28: Mayday, Mariner, Raptor Viper
Issue 31: Heartwrencher, Wraith, Lt. Falcon
The deadline to cast your vote is Nov. 15th 2004, so if you haven't already be sure to head over to Devil's Due
website and cast your vote now.
