View Full Version : Who do you want to see next?

Since so many polls are popping up, I will post one that I don't think we have seen yet. We have: Snake-Eyes, Cobra Commander, Cobra Trooper, and Storm Shadow. What character do you want to see next? Obviously, I couldn't include every popular character in the list, so I picked the ones that I saw the MOST in the earlier discussion from back in January.

ALL of the above would be great choices, but I want to see who is MOST wanted.

I personally found it difficult to separate the Joes and Cobras, but didn't want to make two threads. Runner-Ups left off the list: The Twins, Roadblock, Gung-Ho, any 'troops,' Stalker, and Serpentor. If you have any that would like to see not on this list, chime in.

I actually voted Destro, although there's any body on that list I would turn down.

But I think Destro is the next big name Cobra I'm looking forward to the most. Wrist rockets, laser pistol, backpack/briefcase hopefully with a machine that can be assembled. V1 look is a must!!! :rock

This is why I cannot vote for just one (though we do need another JOE at this point in time, so it would be either Duke or Flint)

And remember, Sideshow will throw in the random 'obscure' choice so they don't burn through all of their most popular characters first. Although, there are some obscure characters that I would really like as well. Doesn't surprise me at all that Duke is leading the poll since outside of Snake-Eyes he is probably the most recognized Joe, but I think Firefly could turn out to be the coolest in 1/6th scale.

I agree, however sideshow has alreadys stated that they have no immeadiate plans to make a new female body.

Firefly is great, but a bit over-rated.

Firefly seems kind of useless to me. Most of the stuff he does could have been handled by Storm Shadow or Zartan, so he seems like a "back up" choice to me.
Bah, Firefly is an assassin, an explosives expert, AND a ninja. Don’t get me wrong, SS and Zartan are bad ass, but Zartan likes attention and is more of a spy/thug. While Zartan is driving around in the swamps and playing with his masks, Firefly would be rigging his Dreadnok base with C4. And, c’mon, Firefly has that nifty backpack and phone!

Heck you could just buy one of Hot Toys SPECIAL FORCES figures and probably have a better Duke than SideShow. LOL Watch me eat my own words :monkey1 a couple of months down the line and have SSC make one of the best look figures they've made in a while.

I see we have degraded ourselves to Name calling. :mwaha

There's a reason why Duke was not the first figure to be release in the Series and there's a reason why all the figures that were released after Snake-Eye have been all Cobra. Because Cobra's Uniform and Gear has always been more interesting. Joes' Gear and uniform are way too traditional and it's something that we've all seen before. Snake-Eyes is the one that stands out the most for Joes and it is the reason why casual fans remember him the most.

If you read my previous post you would know that I do want an awesome Duke figure. But if you kept him exactly like he was in the Cartoon then it's a total waste of $100 because you could probably kitbash a better figure with the same look for around $50 or under. Case and point, (I'm going to use an announced figure as an example) on the Onesixthwarrior forums some dude was kitbash a couple of Cobra Troopers that look just as good as the Sideshow one. The Price $35 USD each.

The boring character is winning the poll. All the figures of GIJoe could be kitbashed far cheaper that what SS is offering them, but that isn't the point.

While those custom troops look good, they are missing distinct helmet that makes them Cobra Troopers. They looking like nothing more than a SWAT team with Cobra logo on them.

I want both Firefly and Beachhead, but since Sideshow already annouced that both figures are "in development", I voted for Major Sebastian Bludd instead.

G.I. Joe figures not on that list I'd like to see are Stalker in his winter/tundra gear, Tunnel Rat, and Low Light. Shockwave was pretty cool too, but he was essentially a rehashed Beachhead.

As for Cobras, I'd like to see more of the specialized Cobra forces before individual characters. After Destro, Major Bludd, Firefly, the Baroness, and Zartan and his Dreadnoks, the quality of "realism" drops significantly as does the suspension of disbelief. I love all of the old RAH characters, but in keeping with Sideshow's mission statement for this line, I really don't want to see Dr. Mindbender, Raptor, Big Boa, or Croc Master.

DinoDB1975
06-01-2009, 08:56 AM
They are awesome. Croc Master was one of my favorite figures ever with his bull whip and his crocodile...but part of the appeal (at least for me) of Sideshow's line is the awesome gear each figure has come with. Yes, a Big Boa with a Hot Toys muscle body to go with his boxing gloves maybe cool, but i want some tactical gear.

thenammagazine
06-01-2009, 09:13 AM
Not singling out anyone in particular, but every time I see a comment regarding HotToys' muscle body, I really wonder how many of these posters actually own one vs. just posting because they "look cool." They really aren't a good option for anything in this line. True they are visually appealing, but no more so than a PF and honestly, the "coolness" ends there. Over time, the rubber will rot (ED-209) if not in the absolute perfect storage conditions, they're literal dust magnets and a pain to clean, throw poseability out the window, etc. Sideshow would just be better off, sculpting some muscle parts (chest, arms, legs) for their modular Pro. Hell, some of us HT collectors might even seek out a plastic body to replace the rubber muscle bodies if the look is there.

DinoDB1975
06-01-2009, 09:20 AM
Agreed. I was using Big Boa as an example of why I would not want one of the more eclectic characters produced. I'd prefer a figure that comes with a great uniform as well as tactical gear.

Exactly. Duke as a figure is a fairly generic looking soldier figure. Where as Snake Eyes, Beachhead, Firefly, etc are all more visually interesting as figures. I'm not saying Duke is a boring character, but just that is outfit isn't as fantastical as some of the other characters. He is more grounded in reality. I suppose most of the Joes are, except perhaps Snake Eyes. I suppose this is why Cobra figures sell better than Joes. As figures, they are more visually intersting. And on a toy shelf, visually interesting sells. Or else Mattlel wouldn't make rainbow Barbies or Batmans. And it would seem childhood favorite figures still remain favorite characters. Why is Zartan so popular, he was a cool figure that changed colors. And he is still popular today. :dunno

And there's at least a few guys I'd want from the 88 and 89 years too! :rock

My favorite Joe/Cobras are SE, SS, Firefly, and Beach Head but the line absolutely requires the traditional military-types to keep it grounded in good old-fashioned war stories and patriotic heroism.

Those were my favorite characters too.

Great storyline where the Joes invaded Cobra Island to rescue Ripcord. Man, those Mike Zeck covers were awesome as well.

We need both Hawks (82/86), but I absolutely want SS to make all 1982 figures, including the original SE. They can even give Scarlett baggier pants like in that painting.

And baggy pants on Scarlett might actually make the female Buck work... as long as she doesn't have a bobblehead.

just a thought, would hawk's original 82 uniform make a good exclusive accessory? it's really just a helmet, sirt, and pants, you could probobly use the same boots on both uniforms.

could be a good way to do exclusive accesories on alot of them....

Yeah, but then they should have started that with a swap-out '82 head for Snake Eyes.

Flash was my favorite '82 figure. That visor and the corded laser rifle were the coolest things I'd ever seen on a 3 3/4" figure at that time.

That's why I never got into anything after 1986. Too far removed from the original concepts. (And I wasn't so much a comic or cartoon fan; I was mostly just into the toys.)

hindsight being 20/20 there is not reason they can't start now.

Personaly, I like the 82 desgns on Flash and Stalker, but the rest... a little too generic for me.

gotta have Hawk in something like his bomber jacket.

And don't get mad at me Duke is Boring. What going to be special about him?

- Blond hair Headsculpt
- Green Camo
- M16
- 2 pistols

= $100 USD

Don't forget his green binos!

They should do a US flag patch that's removable (velcro), as a homage to the original mail-away figure that had a US flag patch sticker. Plus it would look cool.


I hope he doesn't come with an M-16. He should come with Snow Job's laser rifle and a classic M-32.

http://www.yojoe.com/action/83/83card/duke.jpg

Heck yeah. Well, maybe he should come with an M-16 or M-4, but he does need to come with the laser rifle and M-32 as well. Maybe the laser rifle could be the exclusive.

Probably should have at least a couple grenades for good measure. Maybe an in-scale map too (of Cobra Island - how cool would that be!!!???), with case. He is a leader, after all - needs to do planning/nav, all that good stuff.

I don't see the laser rifle being an exclusive since Snow Job would have it as well. I'd still like it to be an extra head with smiling expression.

The Jump pack would be awesome to include. Sideshow would rule iff they offered the Jump Pad seperate and make people by both.

JUMP Jet Pack is a must and totally feasible! I'll take it with Grand Slam, Duke, or even Hawk!
