Kinda disappointing that Dial Tone is just a repaint of Helix's head and Cover Girl's body

Hmmmm, Hmmmmm concentrate join hands in a non-gay way and gaze into the crystal ball....stop looking at the action figure Crystal Ball, look at the actual ball made of crystal please, and see the future!

I see the camo body....repainted in greens, with the Helix head reused...again painted brown, with a repainted spear pack.........behold, ROC Lady Jaye!

:think Didn't the proto pics for DT look totally different?

I mean, it was still a Helix head and all, but these new shots look. . .different.

I like it. DT's neck is a bit long, but that's all right.

I hope that we get "normal" green or blue Joes instead of these desert themed ones.

I also hope that we can get "classic" Dialtone and Repeater with appropriate accessories like the big hooked radio pack or the Alien Gun.

Repeater is there dear sir, his skin color has been changed.

The first single figure in the pics, read the stands.

He seems to have a repainted Serpentor/Speed Metal head as well.

Well I recently hacked into Hasbro's email and found this...


In order to promote a more sexual, politically and racially appropiate Joe Universe, the following changes will be made...
-Dial Tone previously a man will become a woman.
-Ripcord previously white in ethnicity will now be black.
-Repeater previously white in ethnicity will also be black.
-Heavy Duty will now absorb Roadblock, and be British we really have no reason for that.
-Breaker will now be homosexual....and French, but shhhhh, we still have to observe 'Don't ask' policy.
-Snake Eyes will have molded lips....something sexy for the ladies....and a few of you guys out there.

Likewise in upcoming releases we will see the following changes...
-Hawk will become an actual Hawk in the December releases.
-Cover Girl will now be called Cover LADY as its less offensive.
-Lady Jaye will now be Latino and be called Lady J, short for Juanita-Maria-Anna-Carmen Perez-Seurez-Ortiz-Rodrigues-Smith-Ramirez, which we feel covers the current climate of female latin women. We really don't know any latin women here in Rhode Island, but we have seen episodes of CSI.
-The Dreadnoks will now be called Nicenoks, and promote healthy dental care.
-Rock N Roll will stay white but be called Hip N Hop to better relate to the suburban white Hip Hop kids that THINK/ act like their from the streets.

More updates will follow.


This all sounds bad.

This is a touchy subject but in all honsty, if the Hasbro team is up for making characters different races or women, then just MAKE DIFFERENT CHARACTERS. Please stop changing the old ones. The movie, Resolute and the new figures have all done this.

I've always agreed with this, but I think it has to do with Hasbro owning way too many character licences already. . .or something. :think

I think it falls under the use it or lose it category. If they don't keep a name in circulation then their trademark expires and some other company can snatch it up. Happened with a few names, but they pounced as soon as the other companys' trademarks wore off in turn. That way they could use them again. It's another reason you see so many core characters on shelves.


Footloose has a Dirty Sanchez!

:lol Perfect complement for Dial Tran. :p I mean she's got it going on, but she used to be a man . . .

Between this and Sanchezloose, I wonder just what Hasbro is trying to sneak under the radar.

If they introduce a female character call Dangerous Person, and start calling her DP for short, I call foul.

THey can't just do the thing they've been doing with names for a while now like Conrad "Duke" Hauser?

This set. . . I do not like.
The desert camo looks odd. and the characters doesn't look like who they were supposed to be (Order aside). Should have kept them as nameless joes.

Aoshi
08-29-2009, 12:57 PM
correct,

they should have been the desert patrol of the green shirts.

08-29-2009, 07:19 PM
Well, as has been the case with past name changes...once they are in our grubby little hands, we can call them Thrust and the Ramjets if we want.

They do work well as generic Desert troops, if that is what you want them to be.

It's your toys, they can be who ever you want.

Ultra Magnus

I for one like them for who they are. :thumbsup

I can't wait to get this and the Cobra set.
