Great news from the G.I. Joe Collectors Club today!
Apparently our comments have been heard, and they are indeed rethinking the build for Salvo!
This appeared in a comment thread on Facebook:
This is great news and I’m thrilled to hear it! Kudos to everyone who shared their (hopefully respectful) opinion on the subject and enacted some change. Look forward to seeing what they come up with.
Don’t forget you can pre-order FSS V on GIJoeClub.com now!
Ha! I told ya they’d listen! That is truly awesome news to read. Talk about rapid feedback!
If they fixed Hit & Run, they can fix Salvo. Big, bald, and badass is the way to go with this guy!
Hit & Run was just paint though. That’s easier to make an adjustment to. Salvo will need a completely new build which will probably have to be submitted to Hasbro again for approval and to check for parts availability. I wouldn’t be surprised if this ends up delaying production.
Gosh dang right. That build they showed was a travesty.
They should fix the font on his shirt slogan too. Original looked homemade. Neatly typed is more reminiscent of the NJCC version.
