I hope Snake Eyes comes with the sword in the pic above and not the normal generic sword that has been around forever now. Also Zach will we be seeing another 4 pack or will they be switching to just 2-packs after this first 4-pack is released?

Yes, the sword in the picture. And we'll see!

I see that there is GI Joe Retro range , are the vehicles, Minimate compatible ?

The figures in that line are 3.75 inches tall so the vehicles would be a bit too big. There was  G.I. Joe Kreo line a few years back that had playsets and vehicles. Im not sure how close they were in scale to minimates, but they gotta be close.  I am pretty sure Nervous Rex used to collect them and may know if they are minimate compatible.

i just packed mine away (we're moving) but KREO was closer to lego in scale so it could work but not perfectly.  i bought the joe ones for use w/ expendables and minimates in general.  i think its close enough for a cool display

It took a few days for my Diamond rep to get official confirmation, but he just got back to me, and this box set will not be allocated - production numbers have not been set yet, and retailers can preorder as many as they want for the next 30 days or so.

Was hoping to see if there was any news about the next wave of GI Joe MiniMates.

I am working on a few simple customs to act as place holders. Duke, Flint, Baroness, Destro.  I am going to tinker with a Lady Jaye and Breaker or Rock 'n Roll.

Damn it. I go without checking the site for some time & I come back to this news. Needless to say I have now sent my money to Luke's store for 3 sets. 

Easiest army builder for this would be the Red Ninjas since all they gotta due is just re-use the tampos from the Hand Ninjas we got already. If we don't Red Ninjas the I gotta scrounge me up some Hand Ninjas.

Would anyone be LESS interested in GI Joe Minimates if DST showed us designs for the next two assortments?

Back in my day, I'd pick up a cool toy at retail and flip it over to see what else was in the line. Sometimes they'd show stuff that was "COMING SOON!" I don't recall ever seeing what might come next and deciding, "Oh, they're going to offer even more cool toys for this line? No, thanks!"
