If folks remember, back at JoeCon in April, Hasbro announced that they would be producing a new figure next year based on a character from one of the Kindle Worlds novels that are on Amazon.com. This obviously excited me quite a bit, since I have a few of those novels posted myself.
Well, tonight at the New York ComicCon ‘Twas the Night Before party, Hasbro revealed fantastic artwork of four of these characters who will be included in a “Fan Vote” to decide which character gets the new figure next year!
This is very exciting news for me personally…as a diehard action figure fan and G.I. Joe collector for 30+ years, the possibility of a character I created getting made into an actual G.I. Joe figure has me almost giddy. It’s a fantastic feeling! The artwork Hasbro had done to represent my character (Whisper) is spectacular.
That being said, all four characters are new characters, which is very cool, and while I have my own skin in the game, it will be great to get a new character on the G.I. Joe or Cobra roster regardless of who created them.
Check out the images below, and if you need a refresher on Whisper, check out my Price of Peace trilogy on Amazon. She plays a REALLY big role in that series of novels.
