New Joes

I'm loving the new, old-style GI Joes. One of the best surprises was the Red Ninja, which while appearing in the comics once in a while, is a throwback to a cool South American exclusive figure named "Satan" from the 80s toy line. Even the new card artwork is based on the old Satan card art. I hope Hasbro will throw more crazy foreign characters into the mix as the line progresses.

I'd love to see repaints of Cobra Mortal, Cobra De Aco (aka Steel Cobra) and Red Laser.
