Transformers and G.I.Joe... Two great lines of toys that like the old PB&J, work great together as well as separate toy lines. This idea is further supported by a number of comics that have been done over the last two decades. So why bring this idea up again? What's the point as some may ask since Hasbro seems unlikely to ever combine the lines. (Which if you think, wouldn't be that hard since they own both franchises.) Well, there are those who said they'd never make Star Wars Transformers and Animorphs (an idea worse than having Han shoot first) was another crossover line. With Hasbro seemingly wanting to make more fan friendly lines of TF's, (Alts and Classics) would now be a good time to reapproach the idea? DON did a couple of awsome designs for a Prime and Megatron recently and it's not like there isn't any kind of acceptable story that a line could be based off of. The point then becomes why not? And yet IF Hasbro did want to look at doing something like this, how would they go about it? What would you want to see as a line? Here are a few ideas to discuss. (and please feel free to add your own to the mix) 1. Something like SWTF where Joes become the robot - This is something that is currently being done and could be used as a model for a G.I.Joe Transformers line. The Joes would be bots that would transform into a various Joe and Cobra vehicles. This idea has been done somewhat with the DDP comics. (no the Joe mechs didn't Transform but they did have them.) This would make the line a little cheaper to make and buy since they'd be in the same price range as the SWTF's. But would we really want Transforming Joes? The current SWTF's get's a lot of flak from both fans groups. (Despite the toys seemingly selling well) 2. A line of 3 3/4 inch Joes that would be sold with a scaled Transformer to interact with. This would be a somewhat expensive line since you would be getting two toys in one package. And there are a few ways that this could go. One of which would be to ask if the TF's would be their classic selves in updated bodies, or would they be classic Joe/Cobra vehicles that the first DDP mini series was based on? A line like this would have to resurect the 3 3/4 inch line since the current Joe line would be too expensive to work in scale with TF's. That said, and it would make a lot of 3 3/4 inch fans happy, Hasbro really wouldn't have to create entirely new molds for the Joes. And not all of the TF's would have to be huge. A number of small bots/cons (say like Soundwave minions) could come with a Joe/Cobra as a Transformable Weapon. (like Action Masters but done right) Also Joes/Cobras could be sold without the TF's and a few Roll Play TF's could be included like G1 to give the kids a sense that they were a Joe or Cobra working with a Bot/Con win the day. 3. A line of just TF's that are current to their scales today as G.I.Joe vehicles. This would make for an intresting line for fans of both but kind of leaves out a real Joe presense. It would be about as difficult to make as the Classics line I would guess. (and they could reuse Snowcat if they wanted to) These are just a few of my thoughts. I'd like to hear your's. Discuss.
