G.I. Joe Classified Wave 3 And 4 Line-Up Revealed?!?

Recommended Posts

A site named Actionfiguresindustries.com has put up for pre-order new 6" GIJoe Classified figures, and while we've never heard of this site before we have seen similar listings from other sources that make us think these are fairly legit.

They list movie versions of Snake-Eyes and Storm Shadow along with Zartan, Cobra Trooper and Lady Jaye. All but Lady Jaye are figures we had previously heard rumblings about. We should also note that we don't think all these figures are slated for the same wave.

I also wouldn't be surprised if these change as the Snake-Eyes movie looks like has been delayed until October 2021, so seeing a movie Snake-Eyes and Storm Shadow released in early 2021 seems unlikely to me.

We also have no idea how the Cobra Trooper will differ from the Target exclusive one. We assume there will at least be some minor changes.

While I think most if not all these figures will see the light of day, until Hasbro officially confirms them and exactly how they will be released, I would definitely recommend you treat these as rumor for now.

I think it's pretty safe to say the movie figures will be delayed, and hopefully they'll be replaced with other figures planned for later in the lineup.

I think its pretty safe to say that if Hasbeen can't/won't get this incompetent roll out of the current series resolved, it wont matter whats planned for the later lineup.

I doubt we'll get any movie related stuff until around September of 2021. Hopefully, we should get more Cobra Troopers and a Baroness in a place other than Target.

why? on their end theyre extremely happy. its not hasbro's fault that the stores that sell their products are incompetent. this line is a hit, they were worried it wouldnt be. its gi joe in a brand new scale, everytime theyve tried to make joe figs that werent 3 3/4" or 12" it has failed miserably. target and walmart screwed up, not hasbro.

The listings I've heard going out and fairly recently (though I agree I find it hard to believe movie figures wont be delayed since the movie was delayed until next Oct) include

Wave 3 - Movie Snake-Eyes, Movie Storm Shadow (I assume these are for the new movie and not one of the old ones), and a new female character presumably from the movie.

Wave 4 - Zartan, Cobra Trooper and re-issues of Scarlett and Roadblock from wave 1. Again for the Trooper I don't know how or if it will differ from the Target one.

I don't know where the site that put this info out publicly got Lady Jaye from, that is new to me. Maybe they decided to go on an put Snake-Eyes and Storm Shadow out possibly because we will see them officially revealed before the wave is released next year in a trailer or something (Maybe at today's announced Hasbro Pulse Con at the end of Sept) in the near future and because those two are not to spoilery and switched out the unknown female character with Lady Jaye.

  For the first time in years GI Joe is actually  selling well, probably much better than was anticipated.  I’d say it’s probably going to be around for a while.  Also, as badly as the Target exclusives were handled, it’s should prove to major retailer that the line is actually viable again.

why would they re-issue wave 1 roadblock? they need him peg warming again next year?

IDK, both Scarlett and Roadblock seem to be the biggest peg warmers of wave 1, so I was as baffled as you when I heard that.

Peg warmers?!? Man, I have yet to see G.I. classified in my stores. Was at Target yesterday and the lady said that there are people waiting outside every morning before they open to snatch them all up; sorry I have a job and can’t compete with that. I hope the rumors are true about cobra trooper, Lady Jaye and Zartan. I probably won’t be a fan of the movie figures.

At least Target can use all the barren GIJ peg-space for the glut of Ghost Busters figures. Who thought that line would be a good seller for mass retail?

lol very true. but its not even the whole line at target. its 7 dana figs, 4 rays, and a gozer. goes perfect with the 4 roadblocks sitting under it.

I just want GI Joe Classified back on track. That whole 3 figure half wave and Target exclusive wave only really served to slow the series down after a furious start. I think the entire line should have been pushed back with the Snake Eyes movie and did somewhat of a relaunch once the hysteria died down.

Target exclusive wave? What's that look like? The only sign I've ever seen of ANY Joe Classifieds at Target was a notice hung on the pegs about the 14th. street date. Mind you, they never put out any Joes at this or ANY other Target in my area. Just the notice.

This is very funny that you said that because the opposite of this happened to me with this Joe's but with the TMNT was my same experience as you as with the GI JOE Classified line... It looks like now you feel the same pain we been feeling by not getting turtles at our Target stores...

Yeah man, I almost can't even with this line, wave 3 and 4 , and I can barely get a wave 1, nobody can get a wave whatever Cobra Island is.., Hasbro get your act together or we are all going to back out from this collection

Edit*

Hasbro is selling their product thru these different outlets as exclusives; they underproduce so that only a few actually ever get out and all it does is feed the scalpers. Their public advertising info and campaign dates don't match what the outlets say, they have a release date but the figures aren't even in the stores. You cant get them online, you cant get them in the franchise store they're supposedly exclusive to.  This is how they handled Red Hulk for Marvel. Baroness apparently couldn't be found because she was never released at the time she was supposed to be, and now some outlets are getting her, at just 3 a case. Thats insane. And lest we forget, we all still have to deal with covid- we should be avoiding crowds, not running into them by chasing all over town for a product that isn't even there. These aren't Target's toyline, they're Hasbro and hasbro has some responsibility here. If as you say they're happy on their end knowing the collectors here are unable to get the product, then they don't deserve our business.

There's another pandemic in this country. Its called I Got Mine & The Rest of You Can Eff Yourselves. Its a poor attitude, and ultimately a poor business model.

no theyre not. hasbro is selling their products to target, not through them. target pays them for an exclusive wave and then makes an order based on what will turn them a profit. if all figures they ordered have sold out than all parties are happy. and target decides what target stores get products and how many cases go to each location. hasbro ships to targets main depot. the depot then ships to each regional depot, which then ships to individual stores. and yes this exclusive wave is targets toyline. no other stores can carry them.

as a collector it sucks sometimes not finding figs you want. but hasbro cant control when youre able to go to the store and what stores you can go to and they cant control what happens to their products after they sell them.

Oh whoa Pimp Daddy D, is already shipping? ha I'm still trying to get myself the original one

but hey looks like it's just that we all got to be patient and play the long game with these figures

I saw people already with the Arctic Storm Shadow... I think inless they handle this line like Power Rangers, by the beginning of next year we will have our Joes it will just take time to saturate, but hey we are greedy impatient collectors, and it doesn't help these reviewes and scalpers are showing off the things we don't have yet

As long as I get Zartan I'll be happy.

Me too.  I hope he's going to be as awesome as I think he is!!!  I might have to pre-order him so I don't have to hunt him down, even though that takes some of the fun out of it. haha
