What do you think of the plan to add certain "action features" such as "pistol-drawing action" or "machete-swinging action" to certain new entries in the Classic Collection Joes for 2000?
I think it's a great idea that will add to the playability.
I think it's a stupid idea that will hinder the articulation.
If it's a cool trooper, it doesn't matter to me one way or the other.
What is your opinion of the new "Adventures of G.I.Joe 2010" line and its background concept?
I like it! It will have greater appeal to kids.
It's okay, but it's just not my style for G.I.Joe.
Hate it! The figures look too weird for G.I.Joe.
The concept is an insulting rip-off of the 3 3/4" concept.
What do you think of the new G.I.Joe Micro Machines?
They're great! I always liked Micro Machines of all types.
They're just repaints of old Galoob stuff. Who needs 'em?
It's nice to see SOMETHING representing G.I.Joe 3 3/4".
If Hasbro won't make 3 3/4" figures, they shouldn't taunt us with these.
What do you think of the new G.I.Joe logo on the Micro Machines (a blue and silver globe with silver "wings").
I like it. It shows that the G.I.Joe/Cobra conflict is a global one.
I hate it! G.I.Joe should be a Real AMERICAN Hero!
No real opinion about the logo.
No real opinion about the logo OR the Micro Machines.
If Hasbro were to consider a number of options for keeping the 3 3/4" concept (G.I.Joe Team vs. COBRA) on the market, which of the following (you may select as many as you like) would you consider appropriate for the line?
3 3/4" figures and vehicles made as they were in the 80's-90's?
Micro Machines and Micro Machine-based Playsets?
3 3/4" figures and vehicles with new design, perhaps like Star Wars?
8" "Epic Force"-style figures with dramatic posing and detail?
9" figures using the "DC Super-Heroes" bodies and cloth costumes?
12" figures with cloth costumes, useing Classic Coll. bodies?
Something completely different?
Of the options in the previous question, if Hasbro were to select ONLY ONE of the listed options, which should it be?
3 3/4" figures as they were in the 80's-90's?
3 3/4" made differently, perhaps like Star Wars?
8" "Epic Force"-style figures?
9" "DC Super-Heroes"-style figures?
12" figures using "Classic Collection" bodies?
Micro Machines and Playsets?
Something completely different?
If the choices for bringing back 3 3/4" G.I.Joe were limited to the following two, which format would you most prefer (either would include both new and old characters)?
Exactly as they were in the 80's and 90's.
Designed like "Star Wars" figures.
Let's theorize. Hasbro brings back the 3 3/4" G.I.Joe series full force. Joe, Cobra, vehicles, the works. Even backs it up with a comic and cartoon. BUT -- the figures are designed like Star Wars toys -- limited articulation, different plastic, and they look very little like the 3 3/4" Joe of old and are not especially compatible with their predecessors. Do you get them?
No. If they're not like the original line, they're not G.I.Joe.
Might pick up a few, but overall I'd be disappointed.
Probably buy the new characters, but not ones of old favorites.
Probably buy vehicles if they're cool, since they'd work with any Joe.
Sure, I'd buy the whole works! Figure design doesn't matter.
For the record, for those of you who replied to the questions concerning a "Star Wars"-like G.I.Joe, what is your opinion of Star Wars figures in and of themselves?
I think they're great and G.I.Joe should be like this!
I think they're cool, but I wouldn't want to see G.I.Joe like this.
I have no opinion about Star Wars figures one way or the other.
I think Star Wars figures are poorly made, and I don't collect them.
Hasbro is bringing back the 3 3/4" G.I.Joes in 2000. New package design, recolors of existing figures. But there's a new development: The figures will be smeared with black "paint-wipes" in the final step of assembly to seemingly make them look "battle-worn" or "weathered". What is your opinion of this feature?
I think it's great. It makes the Joes look more realistic.
Doesn't matter to me one way or the other.
I hate it! It makes the Joes look sloppy.
