    Can't wait for these. Especially Danger at the Docks (both versions), Low Light, HEAT Viper, Leatherneck and huge Destro.

    Don't get me wrong. I'm glad Hasbro is doing SOMETHING for the 50th. But this is the 50th of the 12" figure, not RAH. We've celebrated RAH at every turn.

    But for the 50th of the 12" figure? We got a couple Kre-O figures. More than a little disappointing to someone who has supported both Hasbro and the Club over the years.

    Regards,
    Bill

    I love both scales, but this is the 50th Anniversary for the 12inch figure. Hasbro is just making things confusing for collectors. The 50th Anniversary of RAH will be in 2033!! (I don't want to even think about that).

    I agree that Hasbro should have combined the series like they did with the 3.75 figures for the 30th in 1994.

    The argument that 12" collectors don't buy things is absolute rubbish. The problem is Hasbro puts out 12" figures with 5 points of articulation (for the movie), and then it sits on a shelf. The fact 12" collectors won't buy that garbage is "proof" to Hasbro that 12" collectors won't buy figures. It simply isn't true.

    There is no denying the popularity of the little fellas. Only a fool would do so. But there has literally been nothing for 12" collectors since the 40th line and a couple of figures put out as part of the 30th annniversary of RAH. In reality, RAH is lot of repackaging and not a lot of "new" that goes on.

    I'm not trying to debate 12" vs 3.75". My point is that it is very disappointing to see nothing, aside from the Club Con set, celebrating the 12" line. Nothing.

    Regards,
    Bill

    I agree with you the 12 Inch figure is my one and only.

    Just received my Desert Duel (SDCC) and Regular edition as well as the 2-packs from EE and I am impressed. From just a cursory glance I have to say the the paint job are better than last year. However I wish Hasbro would stop using excessive amounts of flesh colored paint on the faces and forearms (i.e. Storm Shadow). In my opinion the best 2-pack is Gung-Ho vs. Shadow Guard as Gung-Ho is vast improvement over the 2007 25th style figure. Spirit is also pretty well done, but unfortunately Spirit is not included. Come on Shipwreck, Mutt and Spirit cannot be separated from their animal combat companions.

    I love the Cobra Basilisk as it is a wonderful versions of the seemingly overused Snowcat mold and the metallic blue paint on the vehicle and Cobra Horseman is very impressive. Chuckles is a decent looking figure, however his face mask gives a weird, sinister look (kind of like Billy the Kid wearing a Hawaiian shirt).

    I know it is still ARAH, but the above are aimed at both. The real reason ARAH is always front in center is popularity plain and simple. The 12" figures just are not as popular, so there is not as much demand, which means less incentive to offer options. Yes, without the 12" there would be no ARAH, but without the 80's ARAH there would be no 50 years of GI Joe...

    There should be a combination of figures both ARAH and 12in. I'd love to see a super articulated Adventure Team figure for this monumental anniversary. Looking forward to low light though.
