Of course, we're going to see the big names: Duke, Snake-Eyes, Storm Shadow, Cobra Commander, Destro, Flint, Scarlet, Baroness, Zartan, Roadblock, Gung-Ho, etc... but who are some of the characters with smaller roles that you'd like to see? Here are some of my favorites from when I was a kid:
Joes: Blowtorch Flash Barbecue Mutt & Junkyard Doc Alpine (one of the two Joes from my home state of Idaho) Tollbooth (the other Idahoan) Sci-Fi Bazooka Tripwire Grand Slam Recondo
Cobras: Scrap Iron Firefly Major Bludd Copperhead Wild Weasel Tele-Vipers
Those figures you named might be made someday. But for now Hasbro is just making the figures featured in the new 'Sigma 6' series. And it's just the basics... Duke, Scarlett, Snake Eyes, Roadblock, Spirit, etc. for the Joes. The figures remind me of the 'Force Battlers' figures. They are larger with a more stylized sculpt.
don't forget "TomaX and XamoT" those guys were so annoying, always finishing each others sentences. and you can't do the cobras without B.A.T. troops, hmmm, an attacktix you have to shoot in the back to defeat. and i wonder if zartan will have his chameleon skin so you can hide him off to the side for sneaky attacks out of the shadows.
has anyone here seen those gi joe public service announcement mods? they took the old "now you know" clips and put assenine dialog on them, some are hilarious others just confusing, but entertaining none the less.
I would like to see them all of course! I would like to see a better variety of weapons, like grapple lines, nets, and grenades. Mines would be a cool idea, a character could go around dropping them to add obstacles.
I can't wait to build a Cobra army! Cobra Commander could fire snakes or something. Flint has always been my favorite character, so I hope he gets better treatment then current times.
Joe Attacktix will definitely be a weakspot. I think I would have trouble making a list of characters I would not want. I'd even be in for an Ice Cream Soldier.
I have no doubt that there isn't enough longevity for Joe Attacktix to ever make all the characters I would want. There are just way too many and if the game did as well as the Joe TCG, I will/would be disappointed.
I would love to see a mix of all ages of Joes into one game. It would actually be fun IMO to battle the Action Team vs SKAR or the Iron Grenadiers vs Sgt Savage. Joes have so many years of obscuriuty to pull from that it could be great. But I do think they could trickle in the odd/old characters alongside the new Sigma Six stuff.
