    What does the forum think about having a botcon exclusive be a figure of Old Snake or old Cobra Commander fromt he g1 episode? I think it would be a great idea and feasible because the botocn promoters also do the joe convention. I am actually surprised this has never been done as it could be an exclusive for both conventions in one year.

    Hasbro probably wants to keep the two lines seperate. But as a fan, it would be nice I guess.

    In an interview I read, they stated they were actually always interested in a TF and GI Joe crossover, but never were Transformers and GI Joe in at the same time, so it was never possible to realise.

    I don't know how much Joe-people rate Old Snake but I'd definitely try to get my hands on him. I'd much rather an actual figure than that Headrobots repaint...

    I think that there are a lot of fans who would appreciate an official release of this figure! I know that there are several people (myself included) that have made a custom of the character with mostly 'Joe parts, so it definitely could be done!

    Those are lots of fun... and I agree Hasbro should make one.. (but if they can't even be bothered to make Death's head) I can't see it happening.

    Now... anyone done Circuit Breaker ??
