Kirk Bozigian Battleplan G.I. Joe: Special Weapons And Tactics Panel

001 Kirt Bozigian JoeCon 2013

Kirk Bozigian the product manager for the G.I. Joe “A Real American Hero” line, was on hand giving a panel about his work at Hasbro. The panel entitled Battleplan G.I. Joe: Special Weapons And Tactics, was outstanding and gave the fans the blue print on what made G.I.Joe such a major success in the 80’s, and what went on behind the curtain at Hasbro.

    Solid game plan. Why aren't they dusting it off?

    Exclusives with the Flag Points would be awesome.

    Pretty cool to see that stuff. Remember, they didn't have powerpoint either.

    Too bad, todays Joe brand manager doesnt listen to those "old geezer" and their old ways. ...because the "new high fangled way" to market toys sucks.

    To be fair, they tried to do something similar once during 25th with "Rescuing" Doc if you bought 6(?) CPs and mailed in the money. The first run didn't have enough to cover all of the requests, the second run (with a change in the forearms, no less) was mostly overstock afterwards because the offer expired so most people didn't send in for one after the cut-off. The excess ended up in the Club's store.

    Sounds (to me) like poor execution of a good idea.

    I asked Kirk if he would release his presentations for us. He said he would figure out how to post someplace.

    They are listening, look at Micro Force and Kre-O. Todays Hasbro managers still asking questions of Mr. Bozigian, and yeah, some things are coming to live. he has great things in his mind, and what worked in the eighties, would still work in most cases.

    I remember that he told the guys of one of the podcasts (sorry that I forgot which was it), that he is doing some sort of teaching.


    Well, this could have been an amazing panel, I'd really love to meet with this fantastic person who likes this brand more than it is possible. I really like all the oldschool stuff that was going on in the vintage era and Mr. Bozigian is such a cool man with lots of mindblowing ideas.

    There's so much to learn from the original creators and workers...
