    That Howler would have been all kinds of bad-ass to get.

    That original Tomahawk was FUGLY!!

    So what's the status on this stuff? Cancelled? Concept? In progress?...

    That MARS Tank w/ Track Viper is pretty cool. I'd definitely buy that Cobra Command center. People would go crazy if they made that Resolute Flagg. I know I'd buy one! Lots of good stuff here.

    It's unproduced stuff, concept drawings, etc..

    Chances of it ever coming out are slim.

    Except the Blowtorch. Thats coming as a variant.

    I'm counting on that. I hope he ends up in the HTS cases I ordered.

    I hope they change their minds on some of this stuff. Maybe some of it can be released as Club exclusives? Seriously, those tanks would be cool to have. It'd be a shame for them to underestimate the fans on a good number of these items.

    Depends. The Mauler might have been proposed before the Mauler mold broke. The Hurricane was going to be an exclusive for JoeCon 2010 but the mold broke.

    For the Howler, no dice unless it is used in GI Joe 2. Don't know how far it got in the production process. IF tools were cut, we will see it someway, somehow, but not until movie 2 or after.

    Phantom X90, all depends on if that new cockpit for the Screaming Eagle had tools cut. Bear in mind, the Screaming Eagle was never released at retail, so the X90 was a way for Hasbro to utilize those molds. I have a feeling we'll see it. Tools for the Screaming Eagle were cut and a few samples ended up on Ebay.

    Iron Grenadiers set, doubt it. To be honest I love IG designs but that set is not the strongest.

    Resolute FLAGG, doubt it.

    Resolute Hyberjet, doubt it too. I'm more surprised it was even considered, I would think the Resolute Skystriker would've been considered beforehand. Perhaps it was, and the concept art wasn't found before the con? Who knows.

    Cobra Mobile Command Center. HOLY SHIT I HOPE WE SEE THIS IN THE FUTURE. Way better than the PIT, much more fun to play with forseeably.

    For the Howler, that pilot reminds me of UPDRAFT and being that the Howler was VTOL...yeah..I think it's Updraft.

    According to Hasbro some of this stuff has a chance to come out... good example the IG and Steel Brigade 5 packs... Hasbro wants to get these released.

    Some of the other stuff may never come out, but what they said at the panel is... that there is always a chance.

    So who knows

  7. Troynos's Avatar Troynos says

    I'd say the IG pack has the best chance of showing up. There's nothing really new there, just kitbashing.

  8. Tracker's Avatar Tracker says

    my goodness some times i have to wonder about there thinking

    That Howler would have rocked as well as the Phantom X-90 and Roc Mauler
