This is just a guess but considering its Cobra Commander in a suit and tie from the issue when Billy was in the brainwave scanner there might be a connection? Just a guess.
    I really think that's a combination of wishful thinking and stretching the clues well beyond where they would normally go.

    They said it was a JOE. One of the most popular ones there is.
    While Billy may have some popularity as a most requested figure among collectors, he is neither a Joe, nor the most popular.

    They sculpted two for last year's Star Wars SDCC exclusive(s).

    Yeah, that's Star Wars. We don't have anywhere near the popularity of SW.

    I don't see it being titanium, simply because they said it was a figure.
    Stupidity should be painful.

    Some of the small Titanium lines do have figures in them - Marvel for one.

    A simple suit and what is probably the same head from the hooded Cobra Commander figure.

    The latest set of hints
    GIJCC Question #1: Is the second exclusive a figure?
    Hasbro Answers: YES.

    GIJCC Question #2: Is the figure a G.I. Joe or a Cobra?
    Hasbro Answers: G.I. JOE!

    GIJCC Question #3: Does the figure have any link to last year's Destro or this year's Cobra Commander?
    Hasbro Answers: No, it does not.

    GIJCC Question #4: Is it a repaint of an existing tool?
    Hasbro Answers: No, the tool has never been used before!

    GIJCC Question #5: Is the exclusive another 3 3/4-inch figure?
    Hasbro Answers: Shockingly it is not.

    GIJCC Question #6: Is it a 12-inch Figure?
    Hasbro Answers: Nope.

    GIJCC Question #7: Does the exclusive feature one of the more popular or more obscure characters?
    Hasbro Answers: One of the most popular G.I. Joe's and it is a male.

    GIJCC Question #8: If it is not 3 3/4-inch scale, can you tell us if the figure is bigger or smaller?
    Hasbro Answers: It is smaller.

    **Bonus Question: Are you bringing back some of the unseen 2.5-inch mission scale figures?
    Hasbro Answers: No we are not.

    GIJCC Question #9: Does this exclusive only have a single figure in the pack?
    Hasbro Answers: Ummm...one figure and one trusty sidekick.

    GIJCC Question #10: Is this a one time exclusive or just the tip of the iceberg?
    Hasbro Answers: It will be the first of many; it is a whole new expression of G.I. Joe that will be coming later this year....the whole line is amazing, but we will be off to a really great start with this exclusive.
    It does sound very much like a Snake Eyes and Timber Galactic Heroes/Adventure Heroes/Super Hero Squad/Robot Heroes pack.

    I agree with the Snake Eyes and Timber guess....especially from the last two clues.

    As far as what the figure will be, I offer up this as an alternative guess.....minimates? They're really popular right now......
    MapQuest really needs to start their directions on #5. I'm pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.....

    GI Joe minimates were proposed a couple of times - I saw some concept artboards for them and they would have been very cool. I also think there were GI Joe Palz being batted around at one time. Basically each time Hasbro shot the idea down.

    The Galactic Heroes makes more sense since it is Hasbro's in house brand/style of toys.

    Yeah, it probably is G.I. Joe Heroes. Hasbro has already made several G1 Transformers for the Robot Heroes line, with more to come, including Beast Wars characters.
