OK, I've been a huge G.I.

OK, I've been a huge G.I. Joe ARAH douche since it started in 1982, but this promotion shows how the "Star Wars-ization" of G.I. Joe is quickly happening.

You get to vote, for figures you either already have or will be available anyway, to be repackaged for you to buy AGAIN in a year.

How about picking ten figures that aren't in the making? Ten characters that may not have a chance to get made for years - if ever. A year isn't enough time to tool up for a unique set that will undoubtedly be some exclusive?

Very lame Hasbro.

The only good thing about this news is some figures that were not yet confirmed this year. Mutt & Junkyard and Airborne are two favorites I've been waiting for.
