    I'm not up on Joes much anymore, but are there any plans to do vehicles such as the HISS or Rattler to go along with the new 25th ann. figures? The kid in me wants to see it, but damn, I won't be able to buy TFs and Joes!

    Not likely. Habsro gave up on 3.75" vehicles long ago because retailers didn't want them (lots of space, little cost), and the 2.5" vehicle line proved a disaster. I could maybe see them doing smaller Titaniums, but not much else for now.

    Too bad the 25th Anniversary figures can't fit into the S6 vehicles. :(

    ^ No doubt , the little Sigma vehicles are awesome. That HISS tank that turns into a base would be sweet for the larger Joes, and the mini Night Raven-ish Firebat would so rule upscaled.


    Would love to have a Dragonhawk fitted for the 3 3/4's as a well.


    Well atleast we have the sorda new Rhino & ROCC to put them in. Those vehicles are pure badass.

    I know they've announced more figs that'll be coming out near Christmas and after but does anyone know if the bulk of the 25th Anni. figs have already been announced/seen pictures of? I haven't seen any of these in stores yet and the year is already more than half over. Being the 25th and all I didn't know if this year was the only year when they planned on making them or if they had certain figures they were going to make and those would just be released next year or even further down the line? I guess it all depends on how the line does but I was just wondering if someone here was in the know.

    There's got to be plans for GI Joe after these 25th Anniversary figures come out. Is Hasbro just going to let the brand peter out? It sure seems that way, although admittedly I'm not as "in the know" as others.

    I keep coming across rumor on Joe message boards.That 25th style vehicles might be coming.It would be basic from what i understand...Hiss,vamps.That sourght of thing.The smaller vehicles.

    Just think about this....The U.S.S Flagg in the 25th style.How much what that monster rock?

    They are releasing a carded version of Serpentor (you'd better believe I am getting one). Is anyone else amazed how hard it is to find these figures? They sell out so quickly I have only found three single carded figures so far (Snake Eyes Storm Shadow and Cobra Officer) and I snagged them right away. They must be selling well so far!

    Serpentor, Beach Head, Buzzer, Lady Jaye are wave 2. There is also another figure in there that escapes me right now.

    I can't see myself buying many vehicles, if only for the fact that I have no space left for them. If anything I see them pumping out some repaints of existing vehicles.

    I wouldn't mind new molds of some of the smaller ones they haven't reissued yet, such as the FANG, CLAW, or some of the small playsets like the Bivouac, JUMP, etc etc. I'd also like to see a mass release of the HISS II and Snow Wolf, but that wont happen.

    Here's hoping we at least see the HISS I in black, and AWE Striker in green at least.

    There are plans for the line to continue through 08, they have 2 waves planned past the 3 we know about. They also said they are looking into Vehicles, they would be around the same size class and price point as the Star Wars Vehicles currently being sold.

    My guess is around this time next year the line will transition from 25th. It wall stay the same line but will not be labled 25th.

    That would quite possibly be *the* sickest toy to ever be made. As of now the original U.S.S. Flagg holds that position. No other toy franchise has ever come close to matching the awesomeness of G.I. Joes lineup of vehicles and playsets. Not even Transformers.

    That's right, you heard me, 7' long Aircraft Carrier Playset > Citibots.

    Two friends of mine and I washed cars all summer in 85 to get one, as Our Parents would not get any of us one. It rotated houses on a monthly basis.

    I got a question. I picked up a Storm Shadow and Snake eyes, but when I got home I realized that the snake eyes I had came with a black wolf, other than the white gray one that I thought I had grabbed. My question is are they both made in the same amount, cauze I'd hate to have to get another one if the white/gray one is harder to find. Thanks in advance, -ace

    Is it even possible for the new figures to SIT in a vehicle? I love them, but the hip joints aren't made to accommodate a sitting pose.
