Hasbro is offering you an opportunity to participate in a special bonus round of our G.I. Joe Q&A in which the team at The Hub and Hasbro Studios behind the hit G.I. Joe Renegades show will answer your questions! Please submit one (1) question by Friday, January 21 at 3:00 PM. The team’s responses will be returned by February 7. Looking forward to getting your questions, and have a great weekend! YO JOE!


So, what shall we ask?

Hello The Hub and Hasbro Studios teams!

We at www.JoeDios.com are into GI Joe storytelling, and are just eating up the very fresh story being told in GI Joe Renegades. I am also the Director of Skunkworks at Sony Online Entertainment, which just last week released our new PC/PS3 MMO, DC Universe Online, so I am familiar with bringing a license to a new medium (TV, video games, comics, and toys, all together), and I will be a panelist at the upcoming Engage! conference at Toy Fair in NYC next month. I would enjoy meeting up with any of you there. My contact info & bio are at http://www.linkedin.com/in/nathanpearce for introductions.

But that's my day Job. JoeDios.com is my hobby, and making stories with these characters a fun creative outlet for me. My stories (dios) are at http://www.hammerfel.com/dios

The JoeDios.com question is this:
Do you plan to continue to put cool Easter Eggs in GI Joe Renegades like this tribute to Star Wars in GI Joe Renegades Episode 6:

The Joes in the Cobra Broadcast control room:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DJVJxD9Dvws#t=6m48s

Han Solo, Chewbacca and Luke Skywalker in the Detention Block:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RqXo41tTyOk#t=0m46s

If so, I applaud you and suggest you make it even more obvious. I would suggest Tunnel Rat say "Boring conversation anyway. Duke! We're going to have company!" after he blasted the comm device with the Baroness, just to drive the tribute home so more people would get it.

For those who recognized the reference, it was a special treat for us adult fans.

since Zartan and the drednoks have been introduce are they gonna have Zartans siblings? Zarana and Zandar ?

rnrhero 01-18-2011 02:35 PM

1. he obvious one, are we getting figures based on the look of the characters?
2. Is Season 2 have a greenlight yet?
3. Are we going to be seeing more obscure joes show up since this is an all new continuity? Or will it be mainly just the characters we have seen and the most popular characters?
4. I have only seen the first 4 eps so far so this might be already answered but, Will we see the formation of a formal G.I.Joe backed team sometime in the future as outlaws are good for a while but lets face it, It's the A-Team with Joe Names.

If you mean as in cartoonish look they have said that they will keep with the 25th style and not do the cartoonish and some may get made in another question and answer page.

rnrhero 01-18-2011 03:02 PM

All they would have to do really is new head sculpts. I don't collect 25th style figures anyway so I don't know why I care other then maybe getting more kids collecting and keeping the brand alive. Long live the the O-ring.....

Hammerfel 01-18-2011 03:10 PM

Steeler appeared in the last one I saw, so maybe they'll be adding more Joes in cameo roles...

Dreadnok Dread 01-18-2011 06:26 PM

Is ripcord dead!!!!!!!!!!! He can't be bring him back!!!!!!!!

Xhairs 01-19-2011 08:18 AM

why dd they rip off the Ateam for this new joe show. will there be more then 5 joes in the truck, not just the cameos of joes. as to me the story line is getting real old and i stopped watching it after what they did to breaker.

rip cord is dead!!!!!!!!! if they bring him back that would just be taking a step back.

Reverend Blood 01-19-2011 08:38 AM

Can we have the cobra security guys that are in suits? srsly.
And if so, can they ship any future troop builders in a quantity that people that don't have target stock times memorized can get some, or at least keep your own freaking online store stocked?

Tracker 01-19-2011 02:03 PM

why doesn't Hasbro actually advertise there product via TV commercial any more?

oh and can Hit&run be considered as a character in G.I. Joe Renegades?

Hammerfel 01-20-2011 04:27 PM

I don't think they're going to tell us which new characters will appear in the upcoming episodes, or what new characters will be produced by Hasbro. Any other ideas? Something for the Hub team that they'd like to answer?

troopsofdoom 01-20-2011 05:22 PM

How about letting us watch Renegades at hubworld.com in Canada and the rest of the world?

troopsofdoom 01-20-2011 05:39 PM

Will Rip Cord return in the last episode of the season? Maybe the Joes will rescue him from a Cobra prison? I'll be impressed if he's really dead but I still don't believe it. :p

Hammerfel 01-20-2011 06:20 PM

I bet Ripcord comes back as one of Mindbender's experiments. Perhaps Serpentor? :)

A black Serpentor? I doubt Hasbro would do that.

Hardball 01-20-2011 07:44 PM

If they follow the new comic book continuity of firefly being black, then maybe they will bring Ripcord back as firefly. He is going to be showing up in a couple of episodes and I could see that working. As in, he was left behind by the joes and now he wants revenge.

Probably not, but it could be cool.

Did This q & a get a reply?

Hammerfel 02-28-2011 11:38 AM

Yes, actually. The reply was from the Hub:

Quote:
We are always looking for things that we think will help the characters seem more real, and easy for the audience to relate to. So, if a line from a movie fits, and sounds natural for one of our characters to say, and adds to the story – we’ll leave it in. We never want our Joes to say or do anything that comes off as forced or false.
