    Saw this posted elsewhere, but not here.

    Some interesting tidbits, some "news" I found disappointing.

    Looks like Sigma Six's kid aimed ASK DUKE was also updated.

    Q: I’m asking to be an observer/researcher to let the designers/marketers know exactly what the people want to see, can your COBRA spies plant this information for me?

    A: My spies at Hasbro can get information out, but not sneak it in. Thanks for the offer…we are recruiting COBRA troopers if you are looking for a new profession.

    Some very cool info on that. I guess we should be expecting Munitia, Steel Brigade, the contest winner figure, and a mail away figure. Very cool.

    On the downside, it doesn't look good for Dreadnok fans or vehicle fans

    The answer was quite vague.

    If the line lasts until the next Convention, I bet they unveil a few vehicles. By then maybe the current ones will be sold out. Basically, what they could do is release all the hew ones they have tooling for (maybe 3 or 4 vehicles)....then what? Repaints? Because there's no way they'd make all new vehicles for online only.

    Still, if they did more sets with vintage RAH figures and vehicles like Operation Crimson Sabotage or the Vamp, I think those would be winners. You don't see frenzy over the DTC vehicles that accompanied the OCS set. It was a winner. Why no sequels???? They wouldn't even have to do the wacky window box, twist-tie madness packaging, either.

    I could see them never making a new sculpt Buzzer, if the line ends with wave 4.

    my two cents

    I was beginning to wonder about that flag point thing. I have like a few hundred of these and have yet to use them. I have flag points from tthe very beginning when I started collecting in 84 that's a lot of flag points!!!

    I still say they'll prolly release Munitia as an imposter Steel Brigade figure But it might be cool to have Munitia, Steel Brigade and the contest figure as a 3 pack mail in

    Things are looking pretty bleak for DTC right now. No more vehicles, no Buzzer to round out the new sculpt 'noks, and then they raise the prices....

    From My perspective, the raising of the price is a good thing (Sucks that we have to pay it though) But if the line was doing as bad as we fear then they would slash all the prices to get rid of left over stock and stop making toys, but with prices going up, that could mean that they see they can make money at this and will continue to make DTC figures....Just my opinion
