Last November the G.I. Joe fans voted through the Hasbro Pulse to choose a brand-new figure for the 2016 lineup based on three eligible characters from the fan-created stories available on Kindle Worlds. There are over 100 unique fan-authored G.I. Joe stories available on Kindle Worlds, and the character Stiletto (from Bill Nedrow’s G.I. Joe: Body Count) was the fan-voted winner.
Senior designer John Violette took the character description from Nedrow’s story and got to work.
