Tomax and Xamot turned up in a set a few years back, albeit with Crimson Vipers, not Crimson Guards. It would be very boring to see them again....

Yeah they came with the "crimson" (pink) vipers it was just the reflected and you are me thing... depends, they could be playing on the ironblood / cobra commander switcheroo from the comics but I very much doubt it as I think theyd have them as different characters...

the only bit that seems to fit with oktober guard is the foreign thing... unless they mean a mirror image of the gi joe set up...

if anyone on here has some money to burn/invest i got a friend in the toy industry who has worked as a sculptor for marvel + worked on all the star trek next gen figures, if anyone knows who ownes the rights to action force we could do something about it ourselves........... even if it was just for here.....
probably a stupid idea, but what a thought

It sounds to me as Tomax and Xamot with European variant Crimson Guard Immortals with Rock Viper Heads?

Cheers

Get your wallets out everyone, this will be the biggest chance we have had in 20 some years to revive the RED SHADOWS !


New hints, everyone! See the bottom.

2009 3.75" convention set hints:

"Imagine something old and something new,
Something foreign and nothing blue."

"I see my image reflected back,
And who is that person not wearing black?"

"I am you, and you are me,
That's why we have our own army."

"We battle in foreign lands but NOT in the shadows.
You've seen us before, but now we bend more."

while this is great news, and i now believe its the shadows, it puts the kibosh on us trying to develop the Shads ourselves.
hasbro aint stoopid and will have covered their backs legally.
at the moment i believe the trademark/copyright surrounding the shads is in limbo and anyone could develop a range of toys based around the shadow concept but hasbro aint gonna allow that now.
still cant wait for this.

Okay there is two ways to probally get this

one when it becomes official ( probally next month as they just revealed the TFs set last weekend and its a month earlier than the joe convention) and they release the registration forms, the very first day it comes up ( probally April or May) you need to do the following 2 things


1. Buy the NON ATTENDING PACKAGE the VERY FIRST DAY ( pre-order it ) the form is up

2. Go to the Convention ( there is always convention exclusives that you cant buy unless you go)

NOW FOR ANYONE that is SERIOUS in getting the RED SHADOWS BACK

you also need to join the club, if the club sees that membership GOES UP because of this set you can bet they will do more, hasbro will take notice and we will get more red shadows

Im paying the membership fee just to show my support

ALSO there WILL BE A COMIC!!!! so get that comic too, Im buying like 2 dozen

DONT WAIT to do it, the first day it comes up send in your forms! ASAP

help this set sell out faster than any other set and well get more

on a side note if the Collectors club is doing the RED SHADOWS you can be sure that hasbro NOW owns the property fully and correctly!

Now we got to work on IDW!
