Default How come Habro has not made a BILLY figure yet?

Since Hasbro has been making figures that come from the 1980s Marvel G.I. Joe comic, is there some reason that Hasbro has avoided making a Billy figure? They could even make 4 different versions if they wanted to:

1. Scouts uniform Billy with 357 mag
2. Gold-leg Billy
3. Ninja Billy
4. adult Billy

Is it because Hasbro does not want to promote to children the idea of a son brainwashed to shoot his father?

I always wondered that too, maybe he could be packaged in those comic 2-packs with this wonderful cover which in no way implies any sort of violence against parents.

A few of the Marvel Superheroes are somewhat niche characters that aren't extremely versatile, thus they don't have a lot of longevity potential. For example, Namor is a water guy, Silver Surfer is a space guy, Dr. Strange is a magic guy, and so on.
