Oh well here are some from other websites...

This one is quite disturbing:
Q4 — Any plans to release more international figures (e.g. Oktober Guard and/or Big Ben)? A 5-pack or something like that would be great.

As we get closer to movie we want to make sure we are offering figures that invite 80's fans back into the franchise, so we will not be focusing on 80's international figures.

That seems a bit dumb. When was Action Force at its peak? The 80's? Hmmmm. Who really thinks that GI Joe was a better product than AF anyway? Obviously just targeting the US market and ours is probably too small to register. Marketing 101 I guess. Never mind, we'll always have our customs;-)

thats wierd, the source that revealed the quarrel / scarlett repaint Picture said that EVERYTHING his source to this date has shown him has come out.

So I still expect to see that Quarrel come out in some shape or forrm

Given that the the GI JOE movie seems to have a more international flavour, I would have thought celebrating the diversity of the past figure line would have made perfect sense to Hasbro.

I suspect they will look for a pure film tie in initially to try to get a whole new generation of kids into GI Joe. That, to Hasbro, is worth absolute millions. They'll want the figures on the shelves in Asda next to Spidey and WWE etc.

I'd imagine the best we can hope for (from Hasbro at least) is that they might remember those who've collected Joes/AF for years and kept them afloat at some point in the future and throw us a bone such as the Quarrel figure, or a cheeky Red Laser?
