G.I.Joe Question & Answers With Hasbro

by Jay Cochran
March 13, 2009
Each month we submit 3 questions to the Hasbro design team for G.I.Joe. Here is the latest batch of questions and answers for March 2009:

TNI: When, where and how much will the upcoming G.I.Joe 7 Packs shown at Toy Fair be, and do you have newer images showing them with their gear available?

Hasbro: These packs will be available at the same retailers as the extreme conditions packs from 2008 and will be available at a slightly higher price. New images are not available yet as we show very early boards at Toy Fair (See the Toy Fair images below).


TNI: Will the “G.I.Joe Resoulte” animated micro series debut on the Internet before or after the release of the “Rise of Cobra” movie?

Hasbro: We know the fans are anxious to see Resolute and we are looking forward to announcing the plans in the near future. Unfortunately we don't have specific information that we can share at this time.


TNI: We see that etailers are taking pre-orders once again for the 5th assortment of G.I.Joe classic vehicles. Will these only be made available online or can we expect large retailers like Wal-Mart, Target and TRU to carry them as well?

Hasbro: There is a chance that these will make it to shelves before the movie in larger retailers, it is based on each retailer and their inventory of vehicles. They will be available online for sure.

Another concern for me raised in all of this is the "not what your expecting" aspect of the dailtone figure.

Female anyone? not something i want. I would love a firewall, dr. Knox, Munita, mayday, or classic covergirl (i'm sure i'm forgetting some) even another baroness or phythona, but please no "Starbucking" hasbro!

I'm thinking they're talking about him being released in the movie-style outfit. They made a similar comment about some other figs they were talking about in another Q&A post. (BTW, all the sites posts can be accessed from General's Joes - they are nice enough to collect them together when they come out)

I'm hoping that its the Ol' switcheroo and that Hasbro thinks we are all anticipating a female Dialtone becasue of the recent comics and they are giving us a classic look instead.

I really don't understand all the crying over these being online exclusives. At least we all have access to them this way...I don't get what the big deal is.

you shut your mouth when you're talking to me!

Well, if they have to be exclusives, it's better that they are online exclusives than TRU exclusives. Every time there's a TRU exclusive I want, I have three options: drive 300 miles to the TRU in Spokane, WA, go to ebay and pay inflated prices, or bug people here to get them for me.

what? you must have gotten dumb or something.. @lol@

seriously, ask me for ANYTHING that you can't find up there in the mountains or whatever.. I will be happy to send you whatever you can't find... no bugging required, no inflated prices. cost plus shipping for my good friend.

(this offer only goes for Joe and my other good friends... it may be available to others on a case by case basis... However, if you voted for Obailout.. . forget it)

The reason, IMO, these aren't singles is that they planned to be, originally, but with the movie stuff gearing up they changed their minds. But they still needed some product available UNTIL the movie stuff comes out.

I don't know how well that logic works since Transformers is done and won't put out new product until the movie.

I really don't understand all the crying over these being online exclusives. At least we all have access to them this way...I don't get what the big deal is.

Well two reasons:

1) Quality: If the quality on these things were better, people wouldn't have as much trouble getting them online. The first time I saw the 2 enivronmental packs, the paint apps were crap. So, had I ordered those sets online instead of seeing them in stores, I would have gotten crappily painted figures.

2) PRICE: Online exclusives tend to be quite expensive compared to seeing them in B&Ms. And THAT doesn't factor in shipping costs. When I went to search for those afforementioned environmental packs, one online store had them at $25.00 each while all the others had them at $50 each. Had those been in store, they would have been about $25.

Right now I'm confused. I see a lot of people whining that these are online exclusives but at the same time I'm always see guys here go on and on about how they only order things online. So is the problem here that they're Online Exclusives or that we just aren't getting these figures individually carded? Because to me it seems that people want these just not all of these and esspecially not at a higher price than the artic and desert packs (which were between $30 and $40). I bet these price at $50 and if it's any indication from SW online exclusives then these wind up at TRU sometime about a year after they actually come out.
