G.I.Joe 6" Classified Wave 1 First Look And Snake-Eyes Exclusive Pre-Order Info

Recommended Posts

Duke looks solid. Was almost afraid he was going to come out looking like channing tatum. I can’t wait to see some cobras

I think these figures are based on the cover arts from the Devilsdue comics... I remember like the back pages of the comics with an art of a Joe character with a more realistic look instead of a comic draw...

Overall, I'm liking the look of these figures, I don't know yet if I going to collect the line, depends on the information we get tomorrow but so far these are looking very nice.

Scarlet looks pretty good, although I would have preferred  more classic look for her, but it’s still pretty good.  I wonder if regular snakeyes will have different paint job, I am kinda not too hot on pants being different color.

Are these Fortnite figures or G. I. Joe figure? Collectors have waiting years for a 6" G.I. Joe line and this is what Hasbro gives us? I hope these figures are for an upcoming cartoon series/ video game/comic and not an indication of what's to come for collectors for future waves. If these figures are not for an upcoming cartoon series/ video game/comic, then collectors are going to be sorely disappointed. Hasbro better come through this weekend and reassure collectors that they are going to produce 1980's 3.75" G.I. Joe figures in 6" scale, otherwise this line will be dead on arrival.

Was thinking the same thing. The only figure out of what is shown that I like and have pre-ordered is the Snake-eyes Hasbro pulse exclusive.

I pre-ordered the Snake Eyes figure already. I'm liking the Scarlett figure quite a lot, and the Roadblock is slowly growing on me.  I do see a great potential for the line. Duke also looks pretty good as well, though I do hope they do a Jungle version like in the Pursuit of Cobra Line. 

It's funny because the reaction from the Joe community is almost exactly like the one the Star Wars community had when the Black Series first appeared (and look how that line turned out !)

I feel like the dudes whining about how the new figures look probably sound a lot like the old school GI Joe fans back in 1982 when Hasbro debuted the 3.75 inch Joes. LOL

They look cool. I do think they're kinda cartoony, but overall, they're fine. Since I'm not super familiar with the Joes I'm gonna get just a couple I like, like Snake Eyes once he's made available regularly, cause the Habro Pulse exclusives are US and Canada only right?

I saw the figures are available for pre-order on the Hasbro Pulse website, including the Snake Eyes shirt.  Only problem is I don't feel like paying an extra $50 dollars to join their premium fan club just to get the shirt.  I know it's supposed to get me perks but I'm not seeing anything yet.

I can remember my older brother back in the 80s telling me that my rah figures weren’t real joes.

I'll be getting these, just not sure I approve of having to pay 40 bucks for Snake Eyes. I'm half-way tempted to pick up a clearance Enforcer from Fortnite and call it IT Snake Eyes.

Hasbro is really starting to play dirty pool with this whole "Deluxe Figure" thing. I'm betting it comes back to bite 'em on the butt real soon.

I think unless the line completely tanks out the gate (which I’m doubtful of) then there will be a standard release Snake Eyes coming out at the $20 price point.  So if you don’t need the deluxe I’d just hold off for a little bit.

Thus far there really haven’t been many perks outside of convention season.  I go to SDCC every year so for that reason it’s worth it to me, but that’s really about it.

Oh, no doubt. The mere fact the actual Snake Eyes from this set comes packaged in the same type standard window box the other Joes do pretty much guarantees it'll see standard release.

This would be great for SDCC if the exclusive items are going to be available on the website.  We've seen a lot of exclusives only available at SDCC.

Yeah,but Hasbro is usually pretty good about getting their SDC Exclusives to Pulse.

I still think it would be great if each SDCC exclusive item had a retail version as well, you know, without a less fancy packaging and less accesories, but available for everyone.

I really hope this line goes on long enough to get characters like Buzzsaw and Zarana and Bazooka. And at least one GI Joe vehicle from Haslab. OF course we all want the USS Flagg, but I'd settle for the Defiant Shuttle.

Odd, I was hoping this line would last long enough for me to finish the first bloody wave. I also hope Hasbro wakes the F--K up and ends that Haslab BS so they can put all their efforts behind getting their normal stuff to the pegs . . . like REAL toy companies.

I cant be mad at Haslab. Beause of its business model were getting that sentinel which is outstanding and would never have worked under normal business practices. Big box stores dont like to carry something that large and that expensive unless its something like a bike or power wheels.

Shelf space is at a premium, especially with toysrus gone, so to manage costs the big box stores wouldve demanded a smaller size or lower price point, which couldve ruined it. Also given Haslabs infrequency, I dont think its holding up normal production that much at all.

Don't believe the hype. Look at any Target or Walmart in my area. Empty pegs. Shelf space can be going at that big a premium.
