Ok I'm just going to throw this out there....this is really stupid. They are telling me to pick my all time favorite, but then they give me a list to pick from. If anything Hasbro needs to list every character ever represented in either toy, cartoon, or comic form, then say pick your top 5 from Cobra and top 5 from GIJOE. Then they need to keep it fair and not tamper with the votes, so old Snake Eyes, Cobra Commander, Storm Storm or Duke win. I guarantee Snake Eyes or Duke wont win. If SE did win it would be his v2 uniform cause everyone loves that one. But just imagine other joes or cobras that would make it....Kwinn in his classic outfit, Crimson Guardsmen Appel, Dr Venom, Billy, Shooter, the rest of the original 13, hell the October Guard. The possibilities are endless...but instead I have to choose Bazooka Cobra Trooper or Snake Eyes in evening wear. I think Hasbro dropped the ball on this one.

Depends on how you look at it. First off, the poll said NOTHING of picking your all time favorites, just pick your favorite 25th figures. And second, I think we all should know by now that Hasbro will likely never confirm where certain characters stand in the polling, and what fans want and what works in retail are two vastly different things.

I'm firmly convinced that Hasbro basically has the assortment sketched out and are simply working in secondary figures based on the voting. But at the end of the day, "Hall of Heroes" will likely be nothing more than a collection of Hasbro's minor improvements and fan wanted changes all wrapped up in new packaging to ride the wave of movie hype. So I'm betting the following are all but assured spots, and keep in mind Hasbro still hasn't made any real confirmation on what Hall of Heroes might be, so we may well get more than 10 figures, but anyway, we'll all but certainly get...

Duke and/or Flint with corrected arms and crotch.

Snake Eyes v2 in all black (if we're lucky, new legs or a backpack for his sword)

Destro v1 with a chrome head

Cobra Trooper with red sigil

"original style" Cobra officer

But the important thing is....will fans buy Snake Eyes v2 again in all black? Probably. Will they buy Duke or Flint with superior arms? Probably. Will they buy Cobra Troopers with red sigil? In great numbers.

So today is May 7th, the poll closes May 12th and we still have no idea of what almost 1/5 of them will look like.

I refuse to vote based solely on the ridiculousness of it.

Cobra Bazooka Trooper? Do they mean H.E.A.T. Vipers or that Cobra with the bazooka from the opening to the cartoon?

It COULD be Scrap Iron for all we know...

I don't believe it would be the H.E.A.T. viper, besides the "H.E.A.T." stands for High Explosive Anti-Tank Vipers.

It's probably a Cobra trooper with new accesories, just like the Cobra Airtrooper.

The Specialist Tracker , was an obious "choice", 'cause he is a.k.a. Action Man.

by the way, no NIGHT CREEPERS or ALLEY VIPERS, or maybe SCI-FI or LOWLIGHT?.......mmmm...jeeez.

That is quite a possibility! Good thinking on your part - maybe it was too much for them to call him the COBRA Anit-Armor Specialist , or maybe it's an attempt to still give us something of a surprise when it's revealed. Either way, I hope you're right - Firefly needs his pal!

I checked the link, and confirmed there is no #50. Makes me wonder.

SKYWARP - 2008-04-17 @ 4:09 am

I had to vote for Croc Master....He was always one of my favorites

firefly69 - 2008-04-17 @ 2:27 am

I vote for #50........

DPrime - 2008-04-17 @ 2:03 am
I voted 5 army builders and 5 joes. It would suck if it was just a wave of army builders. I hope one or two joes make the list.

I'm sure it will be, regardless. I just want to make sure there's a lot of them, if possible.
