Hasbro dropped a baggie of 8 concept vault heads on the customizer class at this year’s GI Joe Convention. Thanks to Hisstank member GIJoeComics08 for the pics!
The Hollywood Reporter is saying Paramount and Hasbro have thrown a Joe spinoff movie featuring Snake Eyes into development, with Evan Spiliotopoulos, (Beauty and the Beast and The Huntsman: Winter’s War) in talks to write the script.
What do you think? In the two previous movies Snake Eyes has been wonderfully performed by Ray Park and kicked ninja butt both times, so I’m excited to see this happen.
With the huge success of Haslab’s first outing, the Vintage Collection Jabba’s Sail Barge (The Khetanna,) meeting roughly 175% of their goal to the tune of nearly four and a half million dollars, it’s safe to say Hasbro will go back to that well in the future. With this in mind, what would you honestly be willing to pay for a new Flagg?

I wanted to start this weekend off with a trip down memory lane and try to counter some of the awful news about the closing of Toys R Us. So let’s hear it Tankers… what were your favorite retail stores that you got your Joe or Cobra fix from?
Back in 2007 we all got to see some wonderful images online and in magazines of a new line of GI Joe action figures. I personally remember seeing Snake Eyes and was super excited to learn more.
Initially we got two 5-packs, one Cobra and one GI Joe. Packaged in a beautiful box with either a Cobra or GI Joe logo music box, precut file cards, tons of accessories and figure stands.
We all soon discovered that with removable heads, body parts, and accessories, these became a customizer’s dream! They enabled us to tweak our figures to our individual liking and then be able to share our customs and collections online.
Soon after came yet another awesome 5-pack, featuring more Cobra baddies and then a series of carded figures with ARAH inspired art with characters like Beachhead, Flint and Shipwreck… the rest is history.
