PostSubject: Possible reason for the weird fit of things?   Sun Apr 15, 2018 1:31 am

From The Trenches:

GI Defender wrote:
Joe as we know him is most likely dead. I think once the Club closes it's doors we won't see much in the lines of an "official" 12" GI Joe product that we are wanting to hang our hats on. Unless you are into 5 points of articulation. The 3 3/4 figures will most likely only be tied into movie merchandising at this point. Really hard to say since there is so little word out there.

Brian told me the black and white figures are the last of his run and that the tools (molds) no longer exist. Pretty sure the licensing deal he had with Hasbro is similar to what Linda Lum had with Dreams and Visions. Meaning, once the contracted amount has been met, the molds are destroyed to prevent folks from making unlicensed versions. Hasbro does have Hascon now where all their toy brands are represented in a single annual show. Last year was the first, but I know little about it since it did not interest me all that much.

Fortunately, we still have Cotswold, and customizers out there who are well aware of the market and know the target audience.


Make special note of the first sentence of the second paragraph.

Since the Club's first time to die was in 2016, it's possible that they broke their molds, in compliance with their license/contract. So for the Arcane Adventurer, and the B&W Joes, they've been using a set of molds provided by Hasbro, the same ones used on VAM50.

Plausible?

Well people have been saying this B&W Joe doesn't stand or pose well which is very '50th' so yes, it is plausible.
The 50th's abysmal headsculpt is all A&S' fault just like their Bobby Moore!lol!
