GI Joe Q&A 6/14/11

We managed to sneak in a few questions for the next round just under the wire.

Here they are:

1) Why did you cancel the Data Viper? It seems like a figure that fans would have enjoyed judging by some comments and would like to see an original item like this in the future.

A) One of the huge challenges in running a brand is making trade offs. The Data-Viper was a great figure but not part of the history and lore of G.I. JOE. It was also terribly expensive. We had to choose between figures in order to be able to give the collector community the most figures that they want and Data-Viper unfortunately lost.

2) What is going to happen with the movie toys distribution in stores seeing how some stores have limited how much if any product they will carry?

A) Right now we are expecting to see full distribution of the movie toys.

3) How do you decide who makes dioramas for your card backs?

A) We have great photographers here at Hasbro and we construct and shoot a lot of our dioramas here in the building.

Come share your thoughts!

About Anthony Spatucci

I was brought into collecting when the GI Joe 25th anniversary came out. After dealing with repaints and sub par vehicles I started searching around for something a little better. A friend turned me onto the fighting 118th and I started moving towards a more realistic "verse" for my figures. After seeing a few dioramas from members on the site I got the bug for them. There is a certain quality of person that contributes to the site and that is what has kept me coming back. Everyone is honest about what your work can have better and really helps you to get the best out of yourself. I am MAJOR BLOOD on the site.
