Sgt. Slaughter Joins Action Force With New 6" Action Figure

Recommended Posts

If you have been looking to add a Sgt. Slaughter figure to your new G.I. Joe: Classified collection, well Valaverse has the next best thing for you. The ol' Sarge is joining Action Force with a new 1:12 scale Action Force Sgt Slaughter figure. It will feature 36 points of articulation as well as multiple accessories and a display stand. The figure is currently available for pre-order on CrowdOx, and will ship in early 2021 with the rest of Action Force Series One.

You have to create an account, pledge on on of the levels that has a $32 figure, then when you continue, you get to choose who you want, Slaughter is at the very bottom.

Check out this video of Sgt. Slaughter himself announcing his joining the Action Force team and check out images of the figure below.

Interesting.  Does this imply he no longer has an active WWE Legends contract or is this a case where similar to SDCC/JoeCon exclusives he’s allowed to do this since it’s not a standard retail release?

I wonder if this means we won't be getting Sarge in GI Joe Classified.

Im wondering the same thing, we'll have to see how this figure stacks up next to Gi-Joe Classified figures.

Interesting indeed. So Boby Vala keeps making money on the back of GI Joe uh?, with all the criticism he has expressed towards the designs of the new line one would think that he would make his own world and distance his stuff from Gi Joe but it is quite the opposite, it seems more an extension of Classified.

Well, it really doesn't matter, if Hasbro is not making one then you already have this other one. Quid pro Quo(?).

He's making his AF figs to be more like a complement for the Classified figs, don't worry it will fit well.

Nice, but I'll stick with my WWE Basic Sarge. It's obviously a little lacking articulation-wise, but the scale is close enough to 1/12th that it can be fudged in, and it looks like it could've popped right out of the cartoon.

This is a great figure though.

They did a great job with his face.  That really looks just like him!  I do wish it looked more like the classic GI Joe figure though.

Great addition to an interesting line of figures. I am tempted to jump in on this line just wish I knew more about the company making them. Sorry if their is a lot of info on them but I just started following them on Instagram yesterday and found them on bigbadtoystore shorty after

BBTS order is placed.  Who knows if there will ever be an official Slaughter figure in the Classified line or not some day but even if there is I’m sure that one would be noticeably different enough to where I would be glad I own both.

So, I supose Boby Vala acquired the image and name rights for him or is it an unlicensed item?, and what about his version of the Steel Brigade?, I highly doubt Hasbro has sold him the license.

I think for Steel Brigade that once Hasbro let the copywrite expire Vala picked it up.  And Slaughter is clearly being licensed officially through Slaughter himself seeing as he is active in the promotion of it

Got it, I didn't know anything about all that licensing stuff, so I guess everything is fine, as for the Steel Brigade I guess we will have it in Classified anyway sooner or later, for now this one is a good complement.

When they do in fact let the trademark expire and someone else picks it up that means they won’t be able to use that trademark again until the party who picks it up let’s it also let’s it expire.  There are ways around this like simply changing the characters name to something else that doesn’t violate the other parties trademark but what this likely means is either we won’t see Steel Brigade from Hasbro for awhile or when it does come out the figure will be called something else.
