    FSS 8.0 Speculation

    We’ve made several FSS 8.0 wishlists, but what things do you think the club wants to complete in the final FSS? Do you think additional Oktober Guard figures, the remaining 1987-1989 gaps, the remaining Ninja Force, the remaining Plague Troopers, or something else they’ve started but haven’t had the chance to finish? Do you think this is a goal of theirs, or do you think it’ll be business as usual, pulling from several different eras of GI Joe?

    Well my thought is with seeing all the repaints in 7.0, I think we could expect many more. I personally would like to see Slaughter's Marauders Footloose and Mutt, and if it hasn't been maxe yet Tiger Force Roadblock and Tripwire. Easy peasy 1/3 of the set done with simple repaints of existing figures. Another easy figure would be Backblast (Bazooka's head and helmet, Retaliation Roadblock/Big Lob torso and arms, 50th Outback legs). Ninja Force Banzai could be another one using tne head from 7.0 Dreadnok Kaos and everything else fron the Night Creeper Leader. I'll have to figure out other easy characters, it'll be easier after the con set.

    First and foremost I do not like repaints, but if we must I would not mind seeing a Freestyle. I really do hope we get some of the more obscure figures like Baron Ironblood and Blackstar. But if at least we get Hardball, Blizzard and Fast Draw I would be ecstatic. Definitely do not want to see any more Tiger Force and BATs. I have chronic fatigue of those two.

    Hardball, Blizzard and Fast Draw are a must at this point. Recoil and Grid-Iron would also be great. The rest is anyone's guest, but I'd be happily surprised to have Dawn Moreno as part of the set, or as the final mystery figure

    The Krake idea would be really cool. I still can’t believe he and Michael Monk never got figures!

    Major Barrage would be cool. Artillery Commander is always good to have.

    Would really like Fast Draw. Maybe they could use the missile system from the IG convention set Metalhead.

    I really hope to get Lightfoot, Munitia, Fast Drew and Blizzard before the end.. but there are a ton of characters those missing... just I prey Club avoid put slot in bin with "V2 or similar" for already published figures.

    They could get one last use out of that toll booth head for recoil. I would LOVE a Dawn Moreno as Snake Eyes figure.
