SDCC To Walmart Collector-Con: What Could G.I. Joe Classified Collectors Expect To See?!?

While last month was Yo-Joe June, July will see both the San Diego Comic Con and the Walmart Collector-Con happening. So what might that mean for G.I. Joe Classified collectors?

Well first Walmart has officially announced the dates for their Collector-Con event as starting July 21 at 7am PT/10am PT. For this I would expect to see the remaining G.I. Joe 6" Retro Cardback figures to be put up for pre-order. We know this Walmart exclusive line will see a total of 8 figures released. Previously and still available for pre-order on the Walmart website are the Baroness, Lady Jaye, Destro and Gung-Ho (Classic Look). We also know from Hasbro's Live-Streams that Zartan and Storm Shadow will be released in this line and Hasbro has confirmed that Cobra Commander WILL NOT be part of the line. So we still are waiting to find out what the final two figures will be.
Then we have the San Diego Comic Con itself which takes place July 20-24. We know Hasbro will be attending. Hasbro will be holding a G.I. Joe Classified panel on Saturday July 23 at 3:00pm ET.

We also know Hasbro will be selling their Comic-Con exclusives on their HasbroPulse website at some point with the exclusives shipping at a later date. Hasbro will not be selling their exclusives at the Con this year. Hasbro has not yet revealed the day on which they will make the exclusives available online.

Hasbro has not yet announced what their G.I. Joe Classified exclusive will be this year, but I suspect it will be that Deluxe Dr. Mindbender figure that images surfaced online for a few months ago thanks to the overseas retailer InDemand Toys. Who by the way has been recently showing off Hasbro's Star Wars SDCC exclusives. My guess the deluxe version with all the accessories will be the Con exclusive and then we will see a regular Mindbender released in the line at a later date.

Finally there is the Classified Sgt Slaughter figure Hasbro revealed which they said would be available around SDCC time. This figure is a Fan-Channel exclusive which means it will be available at places like our sponsors BigBadToyStore.com and Entertainment Earth. I expect this figure will go up for pre-order on July 21.

It's not clear to me if Hasbro will be making the actual Slaughter figure available in some fashion at Comic-Con itself or if it will just be online pre-orders.

For those attending the Comic-Con, you can expect to see a production model of the newly funded G.I. Joe Classified Haslab H.I.S.S. Tank on display at the Hasbro booth. As to what else Hasbro might have on display or announce at Comic-Con remains a mystery for now, but you can be assured we will be bringing you full coverage of it here on TNI.

I think the last two will be Duke and Cobra Commander in more classic colors... Kind of like the regal colors😃👍

You're talking about the Walmart Retro exclusives right? One of them could be Duke, but we're getting a second (technically third) Duke in Tiger Force, so Flint may be more likely. As for Coco, Emily said on Instagram that he wouldn't be one of the figures in that subline.

I think she specified that is not the same mold as the one for the Hisstank but she didn't said anything about a repaint of the current Cobra Commander from the classified line!💡

Exact quote:
"Rumor #1: I heard a rumor that Cobra Commander is going to be one of the last two figures for the Walmart Classified retro card back line that haven’t been revealed yet.

And the rumor is… false! He is not one of the last two Walmart figure reveals."

Well, like I said above, I think one of them will be Flint, and the other...I don't know, maybe a Cobra Trooper based on the Officer.
