So we've got some fantastic news! Hasbro
hasn't given up on G.I. Joe
just yet, and they've named Mark Weber as the brand manager for G.I. Joe
fans will recognize his work from Generations
and Combiner Wars
, two excellent lines, aimed at collectors! I'm telling you right now, if his Joe work is even half as good as his work on Transformers, they'll be the best figures we've ever received. Hands down.
Here's what Mark Weber had to say about his plans for the line:
"For the most part, our biggest plans will be centered around future entertainment - the kind of stuff I can't talk about just yet. We are finalizing our 2015 plans and expect to deliver a lineup constructively similar to 2014 - with popular characters and vehicles, as well as a few NEW Surprises. If things go as planned, we will have an update to reveal at JoeCon in Springfield."
"We want to have stronger, more consistent dialogue with the collectors and fans. We want collectors to have NEW vehicles and playsets to energize the brand to a new generation of kids and a fantastic new feature film that is faithful to the soul of the brand (action, fun, weapons, vehicles). Two things I want to prioritize right away - I want to enable and simplify army building for Collectors, and I want the file cards to be brilliant for our characters."
