G.I. Joe Convention 2012 – Names and Identification for Concept Figures

During an exciting round table conversation with Hasbro this morning, the fellas from What’s on Joe Mind and myself got some information about the concept case shown at the G.I. Joe Convention here in New Orleans.

According to G.I. Joe Marketing director Joe Del Regno Hasbro is going to endeavor to list some online polls on GIJoe.Com in order to gauge interest in the figures and concepts shown within the confines of the “vault” here in New Orleans.  While we’re not certain on the timeline for this event, I figured the sooner we start identifying these figures, the better.  Thankfully, Hasbro made the job considerably easier by providing labels today in order to better organize our thoughts and priorities.

Now, I had to make some educated decisions about this list as I put it together.  Based on what we know from G.I. Joe: Renegades, the fact that the theme has long since come and gone, and considering nobody in the design team even bothered to label any of those figures, I’m making the gross assumption that Renegades figures are off the books.  When Hasbro decides to host their poll on GIJoe.com, I suspect it will not include the G.I. Joe: Renegades items, only what we see labelled in the case belonging to the 30th Anniversary and Pursuit of Cobra format.  I could be wrong, but that’s what I’m going with.

The interview with the Hasbro G.I. Joe team will air in an episode due to be uploaded very shortly, but for now, I’d like to get some of this organized for folks to make some educated decisions.  I’m going to run this down in Alphabetical Order.
