Hasbro Press Release- SDCC Sgt. Slaughter Figure & Hasbro Toy Shop

Hot off the email, Hasbro has issued a press release regarding our favorite drill Sgt.

To the G.I. JOE fan community,

The passion displayed since Comic-Con on fan-forums regarding the special edition Sgt. Slaughter figures has been truly remarkable. It proves that there is a huge appetite to see this character in action figure form and we’re thrilled that the designs were so well received. We know the Sarge himself, who you may have had the chance to meet in the Hasbro booth at Comic-Con, would be honored to see such an outpouring of support and desire for this special edition figure in his likeness.

We understand there has been a misperception that Hasbro Toy Shop did not offer the primary or variant versions of the figure on the website after Comic-Con as has recently been tradition. This is not true. As publicized prior to the convention, there were indeed a limited number of Sgt. Slaughter figures (both variant and primary) available after the show; a reserve set aside specifically for HasbroToyShop.com as there is with all of our special edition figures.

YO JOE!!!!

‘Special Missions’ set to return! UPDATED and clarified.

UPDATE: Mark added some clarification to this rumor on his Facebook page.  Apparently he mentioned at the Canadian Joe-Con this past weekend that he had submitted a PROPOSAL for a new Special Mission series.  However, IDW has not announced any intention to currently deploy another Joe title in your monthly pull box.  So, before you run to your local comic shop and demand Special Missions, be aware that right now it’s just a proposal, nothing more.

And now you know…
