    Only thing I can find on this is an article at hisstank. I've often looked at their 4 inch Fortnite figures and wondered why Hasbro wasn't doing RAH figures like that. Jazwares does Fortnite figures in 4, 6 and 12 inch. If this is true, I assume they'll do the same for RAH.

    I like the 12 inch GI JOE dolls too. I've also long thought reissues of the Super Joe dolls would be fun. But the market and kid's tastes have changed too much for them to be mass market lines. Outside of limited collector issues I can't see Joes coming back as clothed dolls. My opinion is, if we get 12 inch Joes aimed at mass market/kids they will be in the solid plastic style which is really popular right now.

    Problem with the vintage Joes is they had no one to fight. He was a true doll...all dressed up with nothing to do.
    The invention of Cobra and Joe characters was the best thing to ever happen to the brand.

    That's where imagination came in. Other Joes were the bad guys. Other toys. The pet cat. We didn't need a comic book or TV show to tell us how to play.

    I concur that GI Joe needed an adversary. By the time I was old enough to have them, they had moved on to the Adventure Team, so there was the diminutive Intruder! Frankly, he worked better teamed up with Zorak against Dr. Steel and Torpedo Fist, but I digress...

    I’m curious to see what Jazwares comes up with. I’m a sucker for Snake Eyes and Sgt. Slaughter.
    Expectation is the death of discovery.

    You did have story books with records which served the same purpose.
