The Flagg was first introduced by Hasbro back in 1985, and is still considered to be one of the most recognizable action figure play sets of all time. The original play set was 4 feet long, and could hold many different G.I. Joe planes, helicopters, as well as hold dozens of action figures, making this the largest play set ever released.
With Hasbro’s G.I. Joe Kre-O line, they have an opportunity here to release a play set like this again in a smaller scale. Hasbro released the Kre-O Terror Drome that is an amazing playset and we can easily see Hasbro producing a U.S.S. Flagg in the Kre-O line. If Hasbro were to reissue the vintage 1985 Flagg in 1:18 scale, it would cost $800 according to Hasbro and is too steep in this economy and retailers just don’t want it.
At G.I. JoeCon 2013, someone had made a custom G.I. Joe Kre-O U.S.S. Flagg that was entered in the customizers contest. While this is slightly smaller than the model we want to see from Hasbro, it shows how great it could be in the Kre-O line.
This week, we are asking Hasbro to consider looking into making a U.S.S. Flagg for the G.I. Joe Kre-O line. Our best guess for price would be somewhere in the $200-$250 price range. It would need plenty of Kre-O figures like Keel Haul, jets, as well as Cobra vehicles.
