Part of the Hasbro Toy Fair Collectors event was a presentation by the GI Joe team. Below are highlights of the presentation
- 2011 will be a celebration of the almost 30th Anniversary of GI Joe: Real American Hero, so Hasbro is launching “30 for 30”; a collection of approximately 30 items celebrating Joe vs. Cobra
- 12″ figures are returning to toy aisles
- There will be 3 distinct themes to cardbacks starting this fall; a GI Joe card, Cobra card and a Renegades card. All three designs were visually distinct and pretty great looking
- Basic figures Wave 3 line up – General Hawk, Cobra Trooper, Steel Brigade, Cobra Commander, Jungle BAT, Blowtorch
- Basic figures Wave 4 line up – Crazy Legs, Croc Master, Snake Eyes
- Fall Wave 1 – Firefly, Renegades Duke, Technoviper, Renegades Snake Eyes, Renegades Cobra Commander, Hazard Viper
- A new mold of the Skystriker is coming, maintains the original features; great looking jet.
- SDCC EXCLUSIVE – Starscream deco of the Skystriker with Cobra Commander and a mini-G1 Megatron in gun mode – this looks awesome, its a great piece.
