what about nightforce muskrat? I always thought he would work wonderfully for a jungle guide for the rest of the joes.

oh yeah I forgot about him.. I loved that figure..

and Lightfoot, Charbroil, and of course Shockwave!

Well, you've got to figure that the original Night Force was pretty rare compared to Tiger Force and Python Patrol (and even Slaughter's Marauders). They were only available at TRU, so some folks might not remember/recognize them that much.

Then again, if they can do homages to foreign figures, I suppose they could do Night Force...though as someone kindly pointed out - Only one of the original Night Force members has been made so far.

Also, I rather like the original paint-schemes for Psych-out and Sneak Peak, garish though they are.

That, my friend, is true dedication! :) Is hard to believe that Hasbro actually put out some figures so bright, such as the Version 2 Roadblock, that the cartoon actually darkened their colors. Here's wishing they actually slipped that guy into the DVD packs... They could pack him with a bendy Mutated Cobra Commander that could wrap around 'Block in a classic "OOONCCCE WASSS A MAAANN" pose!

I'll be happy to take Night Force figures. In fact, I would love it.

But only the original ones, not those funky ones from the 5-pack or the GvC ones.

I say gimme all the originals of Tigerforce, Python Patrol, and Nightforce... and I would love Skypatrol figures if they ever make any of their counterparts too (Cobra pilots and drivers mostly). BUT NO SLAUGHTER'S MARAUDERS! NO!

Tigerforce:

Flint - check

Duke - coming

Roadblock - can do now

Bazooka - can do now

Tripwire - can do now

Dusty - can do soon

Lifeline - Need v1 first

Frostbite - Need v1 first

Recondo - Need v1 first

Skystriker - never gonna happen

Python Patrol

Officer - Check

Crimson Guard - coming soon

Copperhead - coming soon

Trooper - can do now

Viper -can do now

Televiper- can do now (although they really do need to do a proper v1 first)

Nightforce

Falcon - can do soon

Crazylegs - need v1

Outbakc - need v1

Psych Out - need v1

Sneakpeek - need v1

Tunnelrat - need v1

Yeah, I wanted or had all of these in '88-'89 and I'd still want these now in the Modern Era style. It's kinda of funny that the figures I was most excited about at the time were really either re-paints or new versions of old characters from what felt like Joe's "Golden Age". Like even at 1988, the canon or pantheon of heroes was finally closed and any new characters were somehow lesser, even pretty cool ones like Hit n' Run and the Night-Viper (well, maybe Viper's were exempt since they were all just specialty variations of the grunt Troopers and Vipers of '82/'86). Funny how it seemed to take a few years for Hasbro to catch on, and then by the time of Battle Corps there were relatively few truly 'new' characters added to the roster.

I wonder, if we see a NF Falcon, will he have fixed arms? (Like what they did with TF Flint and apparently TF Duke as well...)

Honestly, while night force was one of the better re-paint ideas, I could live without it. I'm up for new characters from that era (Ozone, Courage, Altitude, etc.) but re-paints don't do anything for me. They're a waste of product slot that could be used for more iconic characters.

Also, I rather like the original paint-schemes for Psych-out and Sneak Peak, garish though they are.

Forget Night Force....SKY PATROL ALL THE WAY!!!!!!

Seriously though, NF would be a good idea, especially since we already have TF and PP. The NF schemes weren't too bad over all.

That said, I would love to see all 3 (TF,PP,NF) vehicles reissued sometime. Although all we have, at the moment, are the SHARC and VAMP molds that were in the original line.

We still haven't seen that upcoming single-card Falcon... maybe he'll be getting a vest and brown pants yet! Unfortunately, he was far from the best repaint on the whole OG Night Force team. Maybe Hasbro could just, you know, skip the original colors for the likes of Sneak-peek and Psyche-out. Even Cobra Troopers from the Cartoon series can't miss a guy in colors that bright! @loll@
