2008 G.I.Joe SDCC Revealed From Hasbro

by Jay Cochran
May 07, 2008
Last year GI Joe kicked off the 25th anniversary with a Destro exclusive that rocked San Diego ComicCon to its core. This year Cobra is sending Cobra Commander himself to meet the masses. Inspired by the comic, this exclusive Cobra Commander in suit and tie comes with a podium and microphone and is enclosed in a protective collector case.

Like Destro, this year's figure will also feature a second version of Cobra Commander in his Blue "Springfield Country Club" Blazer.

Click here to check out a video Hasbro put together to show of this upcoming exclusive.

Hasbro is going to do what they have done to all the other lines- Star Wars, Marvel, Indiana Jones- give it an action figure line and a "chubby" galactic hero-type line, it's only obvious.

Superhero Squad Snake-eyes w/ Timber

Muggs are 6" tall and the clues say smaller then 3 3/4". So it's not Muggs.

Minimates would be cool, but doubt it. I agree with Jay either Superhero squad type figures or Mighty Muggs.

I have no idea what it is, but reading the clues my guess is it's gonna a debut of a GIJoe line of Galactic/Superhero Squad figures and this one being Snake-Eyes with Timber.

IM WITH YOU ON THIS . MAN I HATE THOSE THINGS LOL.

The secret 2008 SDCC exclusive figure is going to be a Mini-Mate, that much I found out. I'm working on finding out what the character is going to be, but i'm leaning towards Snake-Eyes.

Well if they start doing Mini-Mates, I'm just gonna have to get them. I love those things - although I don't currently collect them, they're hard to resist!

Now that I think about it...

I really doubt it's gonna be Mini-Mates. Although it'd be cool if it was, Hasbro has a line that they may see as in direct competition with them - Adventure/Robot/Whatever Heroes. So far they've done if for ALL their other boys' brands - Transformers, Marvel Superheroes, Indiana Jones, Star Wars. With a successful GI Joe line and a movie coming up, it's inevitable that they'll be doing ones for them too.

The only way Mini-Mates would get done is if Hasbro has been convinced that they'd sell to a completely different market - which is true, since you mostly find them in comic book and collectible stores - but I have a feeling they wouldn't be.

Jinx. lol. I can go with that. Kind of would have rather had a regular figure but its cool. I wonder what the distribution numbers will be. The production run of exclusives has been pretty low with the cons. They should up the numbers a little since GI Joe is popular again.

As far as the character it will be, I will go for any version of any character as long as it is not a live action movie version.
