2016 G.I. Joe Line-Up Revealed By Crossword Puzzle
One month ahead of the G.I. Joe Collectors’ Convention in Loveland, Colorado, Hasbro is having some fun with their collectors by teasing who will be part of the next series of G.I. Joe action figures. In order to figure out which characters will be added to the series, the company put out this announcement with a unique crossword puzzle:
Hasbro is gearing up for the 2016 G.I. Joe series, and Hasbro Pulse is excited to host an intriguing peek at the first brand-endorsed look at the entire line. 2016 will kick off with an exclusive set (available at San Diego Comic Con) and then a series available exclusively at Toys R Us and Entertainment Earth. The eighteen figures slated for 2016 are all arranged in the crossword puzzle below, including the Kindle Worlds Fan Choice figure Stiletto – the only character previously announced in this year’s lineup. The rest of the puzzle is up to the fans to fill in, and NONE of the names have been given any clues or hints.
