Nostalgia, plus he looked like Vincent Price. I gave him a weapon and Nemesis Enforcers wings. He was basically Dracula on Cobra at times. As a kid you have more imagination. Now, I see him more in the role of the Dr hypnotist HYDRA agent on MARVEL's Agent Carter Doctor Johann Fennhoff, who made hypnotist bad guys bad ass...

Got to go with nostalgia too. Big Boa, Raptor & Crystal Ball all came out at the prime of my childhood Joe collecting. The club did Big Boa in FSS 1, they're doing Raptor this year; so Crystal Ball would complete Cobra's funky bunch. As an adult, I've become more of a Cobra collector than a Joe collector. Crystal Ball will fill one of those nostalgic ARAH slots.
I have no clue. He barely was in the comic OR the Sunbow cartoon because the idea of Cobra employing a professional hypnotist was so universally stupid, ESPECIALLY since they already had TWO doctors (Venom and Mindbender) who could essentially rewire a human being's mind to follow them.
I realize they also employed Falconers, masters of disguise of unlanded former Eastern European aristocrats, but - at least for me - Crystal Ball was always just a bridge too far.
Rock -n- Roll ver 2. The concept case was a close version to use.
Private First Class
As long as we are throwing out odd ball characters a modern era Sparks would be great. Yet since he was a background character in only a few ARAH toon episodes I doubt he will ever get made.
Private First Class
We should probably hope for a character from the original run of G.I.Joe ARAH comic run. I would like to see a Shooter ( female ) or Cool Breeze!!!
Private First Class
Hasbro is releasing Shooter later this year after Comic-Con!
Cool Breeze would be awesome! However, while originally I wanted the broadest most selfless representation from the Club in FSS, Membership figure, and Con Sets, now I am being selfish. I want the early year holes filled with whatever figures the club can produce in their two year contract (that have no ME representation). Unless there is a glimmer of hope that the FSS, Con Sets, Membership figures and other add-ons will be extended for another five years and continue. So these first:
84- Tan Clutch ( I am okay if we don't get a true representation of him, for me the 30th/POC version with the Tan Vamp works)
85' LnF Tripwire (again I am okay without this one, but this is one the CLub would have done eventually. I actually like the International Tripwire from FunSkool, but again, I am looking to fill the holes in the ARAH main run 87-90)
86' MB Dial Tone (I am okay without a true representation of these god awful colors aps
86' MB MainFrame /Dataframe( Same as above, I am okay with the club update versus regular colors)
86' Motor Viper/ Nitro Viper (original Paint colors would be awesome, but otherwise this guy works for me as well.)
87' Crystal Ball
87' Fast Draw
87' Gung Ho Dress Blues ( I would love a Dress Uniform set of Joes, but we have Gung Ho in an ME so I am good)
87' Back Stop
87' Gyro Viper
87' Sea Slug
87' Steam Roller
87 Cobra La Guard
88' Astro Viper
88' Hydro Viper
88' Toxo Viper v1 ( I am okay with the V2 update being the only representation)
88' Budo ( I am okay with the Retaliation version being the modern update)
88' Light Foot
88' Ghost Rider
88' Wild Card
88" Secto Viper
88 Sgt Slaughter V3 ( I am okay with the two we got)
88' TF Dusty ( I am okay with Felino version being Dusty)
88' TF Roablock (Okay without we have a few Roadblocks)
88' TF Tripwire (again I can live without since TW is already in the ME style a couple of times)
88' Retail Release TF Recondo (one of my favorite TF figures, but I am okay with the ME representation)
88' NF Sneak Peek (Okay with TF version and original line release being the only ME updates)
88' Super Trooper
89' Dee Jay
89' Rock n Roll v2 (hoping for a retail release, but if no I am okay with the three we have (Bench press is Rock n Roll also from the ROC line)
89' Stalker v2 (again I want, but I am okay with the modern representation of Stalker)
89' Hot Seat
89 Long Range
89' Payload (just one version would work prefer V1 but just one)
89' Wild Boar
89' Track Viper
89' SM Footloose (okay with Club version already released being only update of Footloose)
89' SM Mutt and Junkyard (again okay with ME original V1 update being the only Mutt)
89' SM Sgt. Slaughter (again okay with the two Sgt Slaughter's already released)
89' PP Copperhead (okay as we have Copperhead represented)
89' NF LightFoot (Need at least one ME version and again, I would prefer V1 on him, but I'll take either...)
90' Cpt. Grid Iron
90 Rapid Fire (although not in neon- POC style)
90' Sub Zero
90' Cold Front
90' Major Storm
90 SF Dial Tone (again Okay with what we have)
90' SF Law v2 (okay with ME updates
90' SF' Tunnel Rat (really like him, but again we have two ME versions to get us by)
90' SF Dodger (an original BF 2000 would be preferred)
90' SF Falcon (maybe 91)
90' SF Stalker (maybe later saw him in the stores and didn't buy because I was getting "too old", but thought about it. He came with a huge backpack that made sounds or something)
90' SF Lampreys (we have an ME version of V1 in DoCI set)
90' SF Viper (have the orignal and PP versions good enough)
90' Tracker (although he may be 89' or 91 can't remember toward the tail end of my collecting)
90' Dusty and Sandstorm (may be 91 or 92 I liked him (except the Red hair and because of Sandstorm, but never picked him up as I was getting out of Joes then growing up)
Once the above have at least one ME for me, then anything goes, but until then please focus on the holes. If their is an update already, it may be a hole to others, but is not one for me.
And I may have missed some, I was thinking of what figures I had as a kid that I haven't seen updates for... Some of the years may be off also. However, you get my point...
