I just want to say in regards to how much we here how "hasbro doesn't care much for the gi joe brand", here we have kwinn and budo, 2 figures kids will have no clue who they are who are made specifically for the collectors. Not to mention the night landing. Thank you hasbro! Also that cobra commander figures are my favorite modern versions of all time. That sunbow ss is amazing.

Perhaps Hasbro is switching their marketing focus because their target audience is changing back to the collectors. Depriest even said they were specifically targeting collectors with the Star Wars Black line.
This could be the future of the brand.
This offering is still very Retaliation focused. My theory on that is this is the 2012 product that did not get to the stores for the 30th because of the movie delay. We are not getting a lot of what we saw in the concept case last year. We are getting the two figures that people talked about incessantly on several boards, Data Viper and Kwinn.
Remember a Budo was planned in 2011 along with Zap.
Im all good with that though. I don't need 100 figures a year, I would be happy with 20, just as long as I still have something to collect.

Kreo is the "next big thing" as far as Hasbro is concerned. That is why they are putting all the brands into it they can. If Hasbro wasn't banking on Kreo and trying to cut into the lego market, I doubt we would see Kreo GIJOEs. MicroForce is another attempt to have the "next big thing" A new type of toy to try and get the kiddies into. They are neat though. Too many ninjas in there for me but some are kinda cool.

I really can not complain, the Tomahawk is stellar, so is the night landing. But the lineup of Transformers coming is really exciting to me. And the Mysterio in the Marvel Universe line really made my day as well.
