It's that time again! Once again we have the opportunity to ask Hasbro any three questions.

I need to submit them by Monday the 2nd of November, so get your thinking caps on!

Maybe we can mention the following, regarding Red Shadow figures and the forthcoming new mini-comics, and perhaps ask how we go about getting a convention figure. If the figure goes down well, they could use it as the basis for a production variant that'd fit in with the rest of their range;

Our primary goal at BFTB is to bring back the Red Shadows. Ever since DDP reintroduced them to the Joeverse there has been a rising interest. A few select forum members including myself did kick some ideas around for producing them ourselves. However, aside from the significant costs involved, I decided to halt the project as for us to have proceeded would have ruined any possible chances of working with you towards an official Hasbro release.

We have many thoughts and suggestions and would dearly love the opportunity to discuss product design with your team.


(GASP!) Our little project! It might see the light of day after all...! The storyline (to be found in the 21st Century Mini-Comics Project) will hopefully be revealed in it's glorious final version shortly... (not the grubby photocopies I was handing out to the Production Team way back when...)

Just an idea...

"Given the fact that the GI Joe line included the Oktober Guard figures and the perenial favourite Big Ben SAS figure, and given the popularity of the recent 'Blades' Con exclusive, would Hasbro be open to creating new figures in a small SAS Force or Z Force team based on the Pallitoy characters from the 1983/4 range? The copyrights were purchased by Hasbro, even if they have lain fallow..."

"Are we likely to see any more SAF or any other Action Force figures/vehicles re-vamped like the recently released Blades?"

I think we've already asked some of these questions. It would probably help if I posted a master thread of the official responses.

[EDIT] Done: viewtopic.php?f=74&t=6266

We also have several unused questions kicking about, I'll go through the old posts later and bring everything up to speed.

Going by your other thread Baron it seems safe to not ask any more questions about Red Shadows as to me it looks like Hasbro are disinterested but at least we have tried.

Well, if :af: questions are getting too repeated, maybe we could ask questions about other corners of the Hasbroverse, like Action Man or MASK. For example:
Many years ago there was a 3 3/4'' figure of the Action Man character in a Night Force G.I. Joe set, while the Revenge of Cobra version of :cobracommander: was so similar to the Action Man character No Face that the mentioned No Face was used as a base for the 12'' version of ROC :cobracommander: . Is there any possibility of a re-release of night Force Action Man in a vs-pack with a :cobracommander: repaint as No Face, or other characters from the Action Man franchise made as 3 3/4'' figures?
