Gosh, another female? I think we've had our fill of female Joes. Will she have a new head?

Check out the thread entitled "Battle Force 2000 vs Red Shadows," (page 5)for an amazing idea for working another beloved female character into the Modern Era Mix.

Notice TF Jinx was not on my list, so many of us would have been disappointed for her to be the 13, instead we got Doc. A win. I cannot see "TIGER FORCE" being highly sought after or a high demand subset, but someone posted that for some reason TF gets requested frequently... I didn't want to mention her and have it count towards that "highly requested" just because she was mentioned...

My guess is GI Jane.

Unless they're giving Scarlett a "PoC" type of update.

Now this is a rumor I heard and it's not confirmed, but I did hear it was "Pregnant with Dukes baby Scarlett" Doc was in this last FSS so she could be the mid-wife. It's crazy cause Scarlett is a mom and a bad ass hero. Who woulda thought?



Also, I really love all the ladies we're getting.

She was in the new IDW G. I. Joe comics. If I knew how, I'd post a picture.

csi_kincaid@yahoo.com
08-30-2016, 06:31 PM
A newbie wouldn't surprise me. I liked the character, but I think Baroness killed her if I remember right? Or at least shot her. My only other guesses are Mayday and Pale Peony.

sheila4420@hotmail.com
08-30-2016, 06:54 PM
Pale Peony would be pretty cool.

j_yoders@hotmail.com
08-30-2016, 06:55 PM
Kind of hoping for Tiger Force Jinx now.

troysheets2001@yahoo.com
08-30-2016, 08:11 PM
Me too but I am probably the one Tiger Force fan who wants as many Tiger Force figures as they will give me. It will most likely Mayday.

troysheets2001@yahoo.com
08-30-2016, 08:13 PM
Or Firewall or maybe Dial Tones sister based on her comic look would be cool too.

ATBotts78@gmail.com
08-30-2016, 08:26 PM
The short white haired Firewall from Mike Costa's Cobra book or the Firewall from DDP? Not that I don't like both, but I'm curious which one you mean.

bassistcarlos@sbcglobal.net
08-30-2016, 09:05 PM
"Highly requested"? Maybe, Blonde Cover Girl, Canary Ann? Personally, I would prefer G.I. Jane.

08-30-2016, 11:21 PM
I'd feel bad for the subscribers if it's a Devil's Due character on any level. G.I. Jane would be pretty sweet. I'd pick that one up if it was done right. There's a lot of female characters to choose from the original comic and cartoon. Personally, I thought the female "Doc" figure was disappointing. I own the JoeCon O-Ring version and it's okay, I just didn't think it needed a 25th update. The best surprise 13th figure by far was "Frostbite." Unfortunately, getting one that wasn't falling off the card was a serious hassle.

gustave.deestradar@yahoo.com.mx
08-30-2016, 11:46 PM
I suggest Heartwrencher, G.I. Jane Modern version, Dela Eden (Red Shadows), Dr Knox, Firewall and Golubulus.

Yes, I know it's gonna be another female figure, but it would be great a new and updated version of the Cobra La Leader!

Chameleon?

axonrey@gmail.com
08-31-2016, 06:06 AM
If she's a member of Joe team, I think the safe money is on GI Jane, who would probably be a slightly modified Bombstrike.

NS550@aol.com
08-31-2016, 07:34 AM
I would be good with GI Jane, and they definitely could use a lot of pieces from the bombstrike figure, hopefull a new head as the bombstrike head was probably the worst part of that figure. I know a lot of people like the tiger force members but I for one have seen enough of them in the past FSS sets and con sets, I really would not want to see TF Jinx as the 13th figure... Now that Hasbro is releasing Shooter, who was one of the more requested figures, I'm pretty sure she won't be the mystery figure.

rjhiii@sover.net
08-31-2016, 07:36 AM
Easiest Joe team members to do - GI Jane, Jinx, Chameleon All simple repaints. Now highly requested means GI Jane, but highly mentioned would be TF Jinx (mostly with the "I hope it is not TF Jinx, unless there is a new Sunbow accurate head sculpt with matching skin tone to the SDCC release") which to me doesn't scream highly requested. As for Chameleon, she has popped up, but not often. That is like saying the Sunbow Skystriker Mechanic "Alice" is highly requested. She gets a mention here or there, and would be nice if we knew the Club was going for another 10 yrs, but...

rjhiii@sover.net

Codename: Alice-
Primary Specialty: Air Force Mechanic
Secondary: unknown
Filename: Louise Carroll
Grade: E-4 (Specialist) Air Force

Here are my predictions:

1. TF Jinx
2. Firewall
3. Pale Peony
4. Raven (Strato-Viper)
5. Mara
6. GI Jane
7. Evy (Ranger Viper Officer would be odd, but cool).

j_yoders@hotmail.com
08-31-2016, 11:30 AM
I hope it's TF Jinx with a pet tiger.

rjhiii@sover.net
08-31-2016, 12:16 PM
Please no more Tiger Force! Especially from 2003 and beyond. Well past 1990...
GI Jane to go with Joe Colton is acceptable and easy.
Characters from Sunbow or the comics are acceptable
Tiger Force- over done, put it on the back burner with plans for 3 yrs plus from now. If the Club gets another extension, maybe round out them, but until then- please no more tiger force, no more ninjas, no more eco force...

j_yoders@hotmail.com
08-31-2016, 04:26 PM
More ninjas, please. We don't have enough ninjas. What about Tiger Force ninjas like Jinx :)

rjhiii@sover.net
08-31-2016, 04:31 PM
I am sorry Snake eyes and Storm Shadow just killed all the other Ninjas, so the only two that can be produced from now on are Storm Shadow and Snake Eyes. Rest in Peace Ninja Force, never to be heard from, or seen again...

jared.vitosh@gmail.com
08-31-2016, 04:38 PM
I believe I have said this before, but I would like at least 1 more ninja.

jimsnow70@aol.com
08-31-2016, 08:41 PM
I would like to see Dr Burkhart or GI Jane to fill out my ARAH collection, but I'm starting to like a lot of the newer characters, so Pale Peony and Ronin would also get my vote.

axonrey@gmail.com
08-31-2016, 08:57 PM
I want all the ninjas.

adamjsmith75@yahoo.com
08-31-2016, 09:19 PM
I think GI Jane and Raven are both very strong contenders, but I love the idea of a Dr. Burkhart figure!

And I totally want a Bongo the Balloon Bear figure.

troysheets2001@yahoo.com
09-01-2016, 05:00 AM
With the hint being that it is a G.I. Joe team member I think Raven and Evy are out of contention.

kelty11@verizon.net
09-01-2016, 12:32 PM
What about a Funskool Canary Anne Lady Jaye repaint? That would be an interesting addition to the line.

Munitia might be another option.

rjhiii@sover.net
09-01-2016, 12:35 PM
Except she is on the wrong side of the battle... "- Highly requested G.I. Joe team member!"

troysheets2001@yahoo.com
09-01-2016, 03:39 PM
Yup so good bets are GI Jane, Firewall, Mayday, and female Dial Tone with TF Jinx coming out of left field. Then again City Strike Scarlett could be a good one.

j_yoders@hotmail.com
09-01-2016, 03:59 PM
At this point, I just want them all to come with animals...

rjhiii@sover.net

I doubt we would get three Scarletts in one year?

axonrey@gmail.com
09-01-2016, 04:34 PM
Ideal scenario for me would be if they canceled the crossover set and made NF Scarlett the 13th.

kelty11@verizon.net
09-02-2016, 09:50 AM
Right - so we can eliminate Munitia, Raven, maybe Mara.

NS550@aol.com
09-02-2016, 10:07 AM
I really hope they don't do that tbh, for the people that really want to add to their Ninja Force they'll have the option to pick it up in that crossover but for the FSS i really hope they go with another figure. GI Jane would be perfect in my opinion, especial since they've already made a modern Colton figure.

c.j.lloyd1@juno.com
09-02-2016, 09:13 PM
Have you given any thought to showing a silhouette "preview" of the 13th figure in the style of how the ARAH card backs used to show "new team members on the way" ?

Maybe a full page preview in the Club Mag that has the 13th Card Art in silhouette form?
That would be a really cool old school throwback don't you think?

That could also fuel the guessing game which many of us enjoy. Thanks!

rjhiii@sover.net
09-02-2016, 09:34 PM
I like the idea! I also wish that the card backs had all 13, with a silhouette for the 13th on the first 12 to be truly old school

kelty11@verizon.net
09-03-2016, 10:39 AM
A silhouette would be a great idea.

terran_brackiatt@yahoo.com
09-03-2016, 01:19 PM
LoL

there you have it folks... we'll get a new character.... Z Force "Silhouette"... a repaint of the new Night Force "Shooter"...!

I don't dismiss a Shooter as bonus 13th based on the official NF variant. i'd prefer a more Olive Drab coloured version of her instead of a NF version.

but yeah, GI Jane, or SHooter would be my guesses.

i also like the idea of the silhouetted preview...

csi_kincaid@yahoo.com
09-03-2016, 11:19 PM
A silhouette of the figures would be awesome. Considering the hint of "highly requested" and "G.I. Joe team member", I retract my previous guess of Hashtag, seeing as it was not a well known character. Also, seeing some of the customs I have seen recently of Mayday, I am hoping it will be her in the black and grey (almost similar to City Strike or Reactive Armor Scarlet) for the body and wouldn't even mind the reuse of the Marissa Fairborne/Cover Girl head.

skoor.cr@gmail.com
09-04-2016, 08:29 AM
Why not we got 4 jinx figures in 1 year, the 2 sdcc versions, the fss1, and the retaliation version almost at the same time

ckkitts@gmail.com
09-25-2016, 08:14 PM
I hope to god its G.I. Jane or an on card NF Scarlett....just please NO to TF Jinx, most club member would agree we've been over saturated with TF in the FSS. Also I am totally unopposed to a rad female DIALTONE because the original club figure is too expensive for most to grab and in DESPERATE NEED of a retooling ala POC. So this would satisfy both grievances. However, you missed the mark a tad for a cool bookend after releasing Pythona for the club figure to not release GOLOBULUS or Big Lob as a nice bookend to your year. Oh well. Also still holding out hope for you to do those and a Capt. Gridiron and Hardball.

A Verona figure would be cool, and given the popularity of Daina it is a possibility.

terran_brackiatt@yahoo.com
10-07-2016, 09:43 PM
it just occurred to me, because it would be just hilarious as a cosmic joke.

Daina as the 13th mystery figure... right after i finally got a hold of a Bear Trap Convention Daina.... i think i would literally cry

jared.vitosh@gmail.com
10-07-2016, 10:09 PM
I doubt we would get Daina. They said "Joe team member", and I'm assuming that rules out the Oktober Guard.

jared.vitosh@gmail.com
10-08-2016, 09:11 AM
I also would like to see this on the backs of the cards. I've always thought that was one of the weakest parts of the FSS. I love the old school look on the front, but the back is just a reprint of the front? Why not show small versions of the other figures in the wave, or other club products from that year? Even if the silhouette thing would give away the 13th they could still show something else on the back. I guess in the end it's not that big of a deal, I open mine and MOC collectors probably show the front only, but it would still be a neat tie back to the vintage line.

rjhiii@sover.net
10-08-2016, 11:34 AM
After seeing the Only human crossover figures- my guess: an actual Argen 7 Glenda.
Which would be awesome, I'll take her, but can't help but think with two years left I would have preferred a hole filled. But then again, Argen 7 is complete sans one file card...

kelty11@verizon.net
10-09-2016, 11:12 AM
I hope not. I was planning on popping that head on an additional Pilot Scarlett. :)

I've said in a previous forum (before FSS 4 came out I believe), as a suggestion to packaging, to 1. use the original artwork if possible (Spearhead, Hit & Run, and Vypra's artwork were horrible!), 2. put all 12 figures' artwork on the back of the packages a la the 82-94 run, with a "Coming Soon" explosion pic for the 13th figure, and on the 13th figure's card back, have that character pictured on the back (so in other words, have all 12 FSS figures' art on the back as they are on the other 12 figures' card backs, and have the additional 13th figure's artwork actually pictured instead of the coming soon explosion)

I believe I mentioned that the figure's packages would be better if those were on the backs, instead of a faded version of the same art that's on the front.

As for the Tiger Force discussion, I've always loved TF figures, and while I have favorites and some I'm not too keen on, I would like to eventually see a TF Jinx. The club hasn't really overdone Tiger Force, they've overdone Iron Grenadiers. We've had at least 3 years of IG themed con sets, and 2 of Tiger Force, and one of those had 3 figures in it-Beach Head, Hard Top, and Mutt (4 if you count the Hawk figure from the Zartan set). The FSS TF figures have been foreign exclusive versions, for those who can't get an original Shipwreck, Air Tight, Sneak Peek or Outback. Sneak Peek is one of my all time favorite FSS figures, to be honest. I don't remember any TF figures in the FSS line up this round. And as far as TF remakes from the old molds, we still don't have Tripwire, Recondo (original colors), Roadblock, Jinx, and Dusty (with the neck cloth and original colors).

I think the FSS 13th figure will be either Jane or Mayday, but probably Jane.

charlesbarry1975@hotmail.com
10-11-2016, 08:14 AM
My guesses would be G.I.Joe Extreme Mayday, female Range Viper, Shooter or Marissa Fairborne. The Club is going to come through on another great figure. We will just have to wait & see. Now you know... & knowing is half the Battle!!!

I was too but I don't think that's who it's going to be. If you believe the rumors the cat is out of the bag at this point.

When counting Tiger Force figures you can just say Dusty the con comic from the year they did Tiger Force clearly stated that Felino was a separate character and not just Dusty with a different name.

kelty11@verizon.net

Kind of disappointed that the 13th figure was supposedly leaked online. I assumed that character was one of the options.
