    Hasbro spies and 25th ideas...

    So if there are any hasbro spies lurking out there in the boards, there are a few threads where people have expressed their opinions about who they want released in the 25th ann. line. It would seem unlikely to me however that they would look at any one person's list and make a decision based on that. Even if ten people all say they want the same obscure figure, it's still only ten people.

    So I was thinking, would it be possible for anyone to set up polls for each year/series (1982, 1983, 1984, 1985..etc) where EVERYONE who posts here could give their opinions on what figures should be released so the results are clear and obvious to anyone who sees the results? I think if we could vote on our top three figures from each series it would be most effective because, say for instance Hasbro considers what figures to make from 1987, it's a given that Falcon and Tunnel Rat would be made. If we only had one choice per series to vote on, these two guys would get the majority of the votes anyway. With a third choice, it gives everyone a wider range to communicate what they would like to see. Once the polls were heavily voted on and favorites were clear, it might be more likely that we could see an impact on future releases. We'd leave out the names of already produced figures, obviously...

    I don't know, I think it's a good idea, but I just don't know how to create a poll with multiple choices, or how to make it an official poll or whatever, or have any connections to get Hasbro to pay attention (I only say that because after the Q&A with Hasbro, I'm guessing that someone who runs the site has a connection with Hasbro). I'm guessing that well over half of all the 25th figures they sell are going to be purchased by collectors like us, and I think our opinions should be made clear. I'm just afraid they're going to be making figures for Zarana over say Wet suit or leatherneck. Or Jinx, marine blues gung-ho, law&order over a great figure like Outback (or worse...big brawler over outback! ), or say one of the lesser loved of the viper corps over someone like Night Viper, a figure a lot of fans seem to adore. Basically my thinking is that a figure they would have never otherwise considered for production would end up getting a surprisingly high percentage of votes and they might take notice of something like that.

    So what do you guys say? Anyone high up want to take up this task?

    I'd take the time to vote on GI Joe throughout the years.

    I would make a single request that you also include a poll on the unproduced figures. The list of characters that floats around here that people always ask for and never get "(*cough*) PYTHONA!"

    make sure you add in some international figures. I'd love to get an tiger force outback!



    Still can understand why they never release international figures in ARAH paint schemes here as a 6 pack. I would have bought a brazilian 6 pack or a Uk 6 pack........

    And then (ironically) they try to 'internationalize' the roots of GI Joe for the upcoming movie

    Wont Be Getting Anything That Makes Gi Joe Something Other Than "real American Hero"s. Gi Joe Is Not A Vague International Task Force, Take Heart Hasbro, With This Movie Theme Your Making A "biggg" Mistake!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Nice to see everyone stayed on topic. I guess this isn't a very popular idea.

    I think this a good idea.
    Even though most people don't like him (or any of cobra-la for that matter) I'd love to see a 25th Golobulus with his pod and a jointed tail. Maybe as a deluxe set or something. But what I'd want most would be a G.I. Joe: The Movie 5-pack with Big-Lob, Falcon, Pythona, Nemesis Enforcer, and Golobulus.

    I would be up for doing a poll, I think it would be a great way for the little guy(eventho they may be numerous)to be heard. and in the end if a figure comes out you put in your top three, you could feel you contributed to a great line.
