So, for those folks who aren’t following the current Twitter deluge from The Terror Drome and JoeBattleLines, here is a recap of what Hasbro revealed at their roundtable and seminar. Hopefully we get some great pics incoming!
- “3o for 30” Trademarked by ESPN, line will be the “30th Anniversary Celebration”
- Detail and design will make Low Light look like “#$#!”

Figure showcase. A lot of what we saw at Toy Fair, but NEW STUFF too!! Stuff like:

- LIFELINE!! Trauma equipment included with Lifeline. Removable helmet, IV, stretcher
Oh wow. Wow. Freaking KWINN IN JUNGLE FATIGUES!!! KWINN!! Only artwork shown. But DAMN!!! Supposedly very comic book accurate, and we can thank Derryl DePriest. THANK YOU, DERRYL!
Okay, then they moved on to vehicles. The vehicle news is what we’ve heard already. Crimson HISS, VAMP, Skystriker at $30. Single seater with no parachute.
