Anybody have some questions for Hasbro for Toy Fair?  Submit them here and I'll see what I can do.

Thanks for taking questions P-Siddy! Is it too late to throw some Star Wars inquiries your way? As for Joes...

Any chance of Zombie and Ninja 7-packs based on the concept vault figures shown at Joecon 2012?

Not at all.  You can post them in the Toy Fair thread for Star Wars or PM them to me.  I just wanted to make sure Joes got their voices hear (or Transformers, etc).

great question - quite frankly, I would love to see everything from that concept vault released!

I have a question:  When will the Quinn or the Data Viper you showed us last year be released?

The "Ultimates" look great. I'm so glad the movie Roadblock and Flint are coming, and the CC and SS were nice surprises.

Also, the Tomahawk... can't wait to add a transport chopper to my collection. I never owned one since vintage Joes were before my time, but I always thought it was a cool looking vehicle.

Yes, they were at the show.  Pics to come shortly.

I'm so buying 3-4 Tomahawks.  Glad to see joes back in action at retail.

The Tomahawk was one of my hands down favorite vehicles back in the day.  Lift-ticket and Doc were constantly flying that thing into some hot zone to extract my Joes when the **** hit the fan. Every escapade almost always ended up with one guy barely making it to the evact site and having to grab that hook on the bottom to get airlifted out... :P 

Going to be really hard to resist that one.  Of course, then I'd need some modern Joes to populate it...  must resist.  :-\

The Joe stuff does look pretty nice.  What is the story with the "ultimate" figures?  Are they just in the regular retail line, or something different?  The Tomahawk is cool too.  I had sort of been backing off Joes a bit recently (well, there hasn't been much I guess), but some of this stuff might pull me back a bit.

From what I gathered, the ultimate figures are in the regular line, but are the best sculpt offer.

Man, Joe fans have a lot to be happy about.  Best of show goes to them out of the Hasbro presentation IMO.  Great figures, and the Tomahawk was a centerpiece for me too...  In my world it always got shot down, and needed survivors rescued.  It was such a big chopper...

As spoiled as my brother and I were, we both had one.  :-X
