Though Valor vs Venom continued into the first half of 2005, its successor line never materialized. Instead, the 3 3/4" G.I. Joe was put on hiatus, as Hasbro explored the 8 inch scale with Sigma 6. As an olive branch to the collector community, Hasbro utilizes their new online store to create the "Direct to Consumer" line of 3 3/4" figures. The line features previously canceled toys and new figures based on existing designs.
