My understanding is it’s a fan channel exclusive. So bigbadtoystore, hasbro pulse, entertainment Earth, and other online stores

Jeez, they may have sold them all through Pulse or under the criteria of the "Fan Channel".

Yeah 100% agree it’s a weird way of saying we aren’t selling this figure through big chain stores, but also make a different figure a store exclusive.

I thought the "fan channel" concept would serve as an alternative to offer variants or certain characters of less demand without the need to depend on large retailers that might not be very interested in carrying items from a franchise that had been out of the market for some years and now tries to resurface, as is the case with GI Joe, but I don't think that's the case, the same could be said about Hasbro Pulse, IMO both will be somewhat redundant if, in the end, Hasbro will keep offering exclusive items trough the usual stores or, is this how they will be able to offer more figures?, who knows.

I mean thus far both of the 2 online/fan channel exclusives and the 2 pulse exclusives have been variants. It’s only odd in the case of Storm Shadow since his standard release has yet to be revealed but that one is undoubtably going to be the more heavily sought after version compared to this one on Amazon based on his Version 3 Ninja Force costume.

I agree with you, even though it seems to me that any version of Storm Shadow, and for that matter Snake Eyes, will be sought after.

For sure.  Personally I’m just glad this line has yet to have any Walgreens or Walmart exclusives since those are always so randomly available online and have poor in store distribution to where a lot of regions even within the US never get them.

That's exactly my biggest fear and my biggest gripe about Hasbro and I know it will happen eventually. At the moment I have no problem with the exclusives being variants or repaints of regular figures, it is when new characters are offered in this way when I really get pissed.

Yeah I’m a GI Joe completist so I’m definitely not looking forward to them eventually creating these store exclusives.  I ended up having to pay an arm and a leg for the Rise of Cobra Walmart sets just because I don’t have a Walmart near me.  And year after year when I’m going through the lists of Marvel Legends and Star Wars Black Series that came out that year it always turns out I managed to get them all except for some of the Walgreens and Walmart ones (and Game Stop in the case of Star Wars).  I really hate these retailer exclusives that aren’t also readily available online.

I'm not very familiar or attached to GI Joe, so I told myself (and my wife) that I'd only get Snake Eyes and maybe the Baroness...but that red ninja looks very cool, and he comes with a bunch of accessories that I can give to Snake Eyes, and Gung Ho looks like he could go fine with some Aliens... Oh boy, here we go again...

 Hopefully you can find all the figures that interest you, the sale of toys is temporarily prohibited here and I feel the Classified distribution will be equal to that of the Lightning Collection, I hope I'm wrong about this.
