2021 Hasbro Pulse Con - Day 2 Coverage - G.I. Joe Panel Coverage


Recommended Posts

The second day of Hasbro's virtual Pulse-Con kicks off with the G.I. Joe brand panel. On panel today will be Emily, Marketing, Lenny, Design, Chris, Engineering and Cory, Sculpting.

We will be updating with the latest product reveals and images so be sure to refresh your browser over the course of the next hour. Look for new products announced today to go up for pre-order starting at 5pm ET at places like our sponsors BigBadToyStore.com and EntertainmentEarth.

Also the Pulse-Con exclusive G.I. Joe Classified Series Master of Disguise Zartan Action Figure will be available starting at 4pm ET for premium members and 5pm for everyone else. Hasbro yesterday for the exclusives that went live started out as for purchase and then switched over to pre-orders. I suspect we will see something similar happen today. That means if you end up having to pre-order you will have to wait longer to get it but you will get it.

More to come...

Do you remember what it was like to sit in front of the TV and wait for G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero to come on after school? Or the pure unfiltered joy you got from hanging on to every mission? We do, and we want that for you. The Skystriker, o-ring Ace, and o-ring Wayne Ruthel aim to help you grab ahold of that feeling again. They’ll supply you with immediate out-the-box display possibilities that are sure to transport you back to the 1980s in style. Set your sights on all three unlocks and you’ve got a killer operation.

I prefer this Classified Storm Shadow to the images him with the  Bane mask and the Yakuza tattoo on the arm, but it bothers me a bit that everything they unveiled for Classified was very VERY classic, and I'm concerned about what it means for the line going forward.

Best GI Joe reveals to date... I will buy everything... The classified figures are amazing, specially Croc Master and the Bat. The o-ring retros are a must and the Haslab I will back it up just like I did with the Victory Saber...😃✌️

Yeah they seemed to listen to the feedback and decided to go pretty much total classic looks now.

If this is the direction now, It's an overcorrection IMO. There can and should be room for both classic and modern in Classified. The GI Joe toy designs have all evolved over time, long before Classified was a thing. While the updates to series 1 were pretty silly, it's hard to argue that the modern but familiar updates with a bit of sci-fi flair on Baroness and Major Bludd weren't phenomenal. The Alley Viper design that's been on the back of the packaging is among their best redesigns and would make an amazing figure. The aesthetic is high-tech and almost alien (as in extraterrestrial) but still totally recognizable as an Alley Viper.
That the battle damaged head on the B.A.T matches the one from the apparently leaked images seen on Instagram and Hisstank this summer would seem to confirm that the Alley Viper head seen with it and other Alley Viper bits seem later may indeed be legit and that the box art design will not make it into toy form.
If future Classfied redesigns have all been scrapped in favor of '80s, '80s, '80s, I think it's a real shame. Because they were clearly capable of making some damn good ones.
