G.I. Joe: Classified 6" Figure First Look

Recommended Posts

Why don.t they just do versions based on the classic G.I. JOE cartoon series. The main reason GI JOE is popular is because of the 80s cartoon series. What Super7 is doing with He Man is the way it should be done. Base the characters detail on the way they are illustrated in the 80s cartoon. Colors and all. I am hoping that Hasbro does a Classics line because I am not spending a dime on this version Snake Eyes or any  GI JOE.

Number one I personally am super excited by this line and I’m looking forward to buying all these figures.  I think Snake Eyes looks great.  
 

That said I totally agree with this idea of doing the line as if it’s the cartoon in 3 dimensions and making it look as if it’s straight out of the Sunbow series (similar to the Mattel/Super7 Masters of the Universe animated line).  This animation based idea was also what I was saying they should do several years ago when the idea of a 6” Joe line was also batted around.

Liam gives us a heads up that images giving us our first look at Hasbro's rumored 6" G.I.Joe Classified figures have hit social media. We aren't sure where the images originated from but we got them from the Full Force Podcast.

The images show some type of deluxe version of Snake-Eyes. There have been rumors of some type of exclusive figure being released right out the gate for this line, likely to go up for order or pre-order this weekend. We suspect this will be that figure. The figure comes with fancy packaging and a number of accessories. My guess there will be a regular version that will not feature the outer packaging or quit as many accessories . One accessory that seems to be missing is Snake-Eyes' pet wolf named Timber. It's also worth noting that the artwork on the box is very similar to that used for the new G.I. Joe: War on Cobra App Game that was released earlier this year. Check out the images for this figure below and stay-tuned for more details as they become available. We should definitely hear more on this on Saturday during Hasbro's Toy Fair event which kicks off at 1:30PM ET. We will have full coverage of the event here on TNI.

While, I would also like to see them do the figures with the looks and details of the characters from the classic cartoon, you can't seriously say that the new Snake Eyes figure looks lame. I can't wait to hand over some cash for one.

Snake Eyes is just impressive looking! Might just need to pickup a few of this new line, can't wait for Toyfair to see more from this line. Would love to see a hooded Cobra Commander!

What's the other figure that's standing next to Snake Eyes?

It's a custom using the Marvel Legends Black Panther Wave 2 Killmonger figure, I'm not %100 about the head I believe it is from Multiple Man.

I've been waiting for this.. He looks awesome! Seeing as I have most of my wants from ML now, I guess this line will be my obsession the next few years.

You're not alone, as I'd love a hooded Cobra Commander. I always preferred that look for him, to me it looked more menacing  than the helmet and steel faceplate. I particularly hated him in that steel battle suit. The hood was just such a better look.

I was a little non-plussed when I first saw the Scarlet and Roadblock pictures yesterday. The ones today are much better. The more I look at these figures, the more I want them. Duke particularly looks good.

Preordered my Snake Eyes.  Now just looking forward to seeing some Cobras.  When do we think those will be revealed?  Surely they won’t wait all the way to SDCC

New listings for G.I. Joe product have surfaced online via everestwholesale.com. These listings seem to be a mixture of collector oriented 6" Classified figures and non-Classified toys which we are going to assume are geared more for kids. These are also likely going to tie into the upcoming Snake-Eyes movie. Of course we should note that these are not confirmed by Hasbro and subject to change.

For 6" Classified figures, there are a total of 10 different listings, 5 of which we believe are for the first wave . The other 6 are likely for a second wave of figures and 3 of those appear to be movie based. The listings use code words as opposed to the actual character names, but when you see MV, we believe that is an indication for a movie based figure.

Here is how it breaks down:

Classified Wave 1:

GI JOE - CS 6" FIGURE MAYFLY
E84915X0
EAN: 5010993662388
This is Roadblock

GI JOE - CS 6" FIGURE DUNG BEETLE
HBGE84945X0
EAN: 5010993662425
This is Duke

GI JOE - CS 6" FIGURE MOSQUITO
HBGE84955X0
EAN: 5010993662432
This is Scarlett

GI JOE - CS 6" FIGURE TARANTULA
HBGE84905X0
EAN: 5010993662395
This should be Snake-Eyes

GI JOE - CS 6" FIGURE DARKLING
HBGE84925X0
EAN:5010993662401
This should be Destro


Classified Wave 2:

GI JOE - CS 6" FIGURE MV LADY BUG
F01125X0
EAN: 5010993738359
We believe this is a movie based figure

GI JOE - CS 6" FIGURE SCORPION MV
E84965X0
We believe this is a movie based figure

GI JOE - CS 6" FIGURE MV TARANTULA
E85155X0
We believe this is a movie based Snake-Eyes figure since it shares the same TARANTULA code name as the wave 1 Snake-Eyes.

GI JOE - CS 6" FIGURE MOSQUITO
HBGE84975X0
EAN: 5010993725663
Not movie based

GI JOE - CS 6" FIGURE HORSEFLY
HBGE89825X0
EAN: 5010993725670
Not movie based

GI JOE - CS 6" FIGURE RHINO BEETLE
HBGE89835X0
EAN: 5010993725687
Not movie based

Listings for non-Classified G.I.Joe products we assume are going to be more geared for kids.

GI JOE - ELECTRONIC SWORD
HBGE83525L0

GI JOE - GJI FEATURE MASK
HBGF01265L0

GI JOE - TITAN FIGURE AST
HBGE83455L0
Should be 12" figures

GI JOE - CORE 6" NINJA FIG AST
HBGF01165L0
While these are listed as 6" figures, these will likely be less articulated and details than then the Classified figures. They may be a little shorter to.

GI JOE - CORE NINJA FIG AND VEHICLE AST
HBGF01355L0
Again something that will likely be geared more for kids, but perhaps cool enough to use with Classified figures???

GI JOE - NINJA STRIKE 12" SNAKE EYES FEATURE FIG
HBGE83485L0
Probably something with electronic sound features.

Why is Hasbro avoiding the GI Joe animated series from the 80s. I am hoping they do a classic line but I will not spend a dime on these below average Joe figures. Hasbro should take a que from Neca or Super7 and produce figures they mirror their animated counterpart. The Neca TMNT line look exactly like they did in the cartoon. The Super7 Thundercats and He man likewise. The main reason GI Joe is popular is from the animated real american hero cartoon. Just base the figures on those designs.. Its not rocket science Hasbro
