Hasbro QA 3/11
When Hasbro sold the Vintage molds for scrap, was any consideration given to selling them to the Collector Market? Based on recent prices for Pre-Production items, I'm sure a number of High End Collectors would have paid Well over Scrap Value to own Original Tooling for their Favorite Vintage GI Joe toys. Please Consider the Collector Market in future purges.
Hasbro: Thanks for your passion and recommendation. However, the weight of the steel mold to be too heavy for a collection - most weigh-in around 1 ton each!
Why are canceled vehicles like the Polar Shark showing up at limited retail while Wal-Mart seems to have dropped GI Joe from its shelves? Is there a chance for a broader or online distribution?
