Recommended Posts

Hasbro today is holding a new live-stream with the G.I. Joe brand team which we are bringing you coverage of as it happens. We expect new product pre-orders to launch later today at 1pm ET at places like our sponsors BigBadToyStore.com and Entertainment Earth. Today's pre-orders are likely to include Quick Kick, Cobra Techno-Viper, Airbourne, Big Boa, Retro Duke, Retro Scarlett, 60th Anniversary Wetsuit Trooper, 60th Anniversary Camo Trooper and Retro Recondo. Whether some of these will be store exclusives remains to be seen but should find out during this live-stream along with other new reveals in both names and digital renders.

 

 

 

 

 
 
The live-stream has begun.

They are not doing any digital renders reveals today, just four name reveals and then going over the pre-orders.

The name only reveals are Starduster, Nemesis Immortal (Enforcer) from Cobra La, Zandar, Leatherneck.

Nine items going up for pre-orders today, Big Boa, Techno Viper, Quick Kick, Airborne, Retro Recondo, Retro Scarlet, Retro Duke, 60th Anniversary Wetsuit Trooper and 60th Anniversary Camo Trooper. These will all be mainline items going up for pre-order at 1pm ET.

They showed a Techno Viper Test figure where the colors got messed up.

The cardbacks on the Retro figures will be much more sturdy than the ones they used with the Walmart ones.

Panel ends.

Ditto at least  not anymore.

 

Most likely  yes I think a lot of preorders  will go up especially  for 60th anniversary  figures wave 15 and first 2 retro classified  non exclusive  figures for 2024. My guess is they will say a release  date of late May but show up sometime  in March about 2 months early. If these are already  boxed and packaged they are already  in Shipping boxes getting  ready  to be loaded onto shipping  containers on ships or are already  on the water on there way to international  and U.S. ports. My guess is the latter.

Online stores might get these in mid February  but I think walmarts and targets will get these sometime  in March my guess is mid to late March.  But that is my guess. Late January  is a possibility  for online stores also like gamestop.com  and Amazon.com. Unfortunately  no rest for us gijoe collectors.

Some good stuff here! I'm still trying to decide if I want to jump back in on this line. I bought every single figure they made in the regular windowless packaging (not the retro stuff though), but I've skipped every single thing they did in windowless packaging with the exception of a handful that I found on clearance for under $10 and couldn't pass up. I haven't opened a single figure that came in the windowed packaging and don't intend to. I like what they're doing, but can't collect everything.

So, and this is just my curiosity here, why keep the windowless stuff in-package?  I can understand mint-in-box collecting with stuff you can actually see, but I can't wrap my head around keeping something you can't inside the box.  Why that route?

Nope, you're right. That was a typo. I meant to say that I hadn't opened anything in the windowed packaging. There's not really much I've bought in windowless at all... Tiger Force Duke with RAM, Falcon, some crimson BATS and Vypras, that's it - all $10 or less and of course I opened those to make sure that those figures were actually what was in the package. At that price point, I just couldn't resist and just work them in with my Marvel Legends stuff, which they scale pretty well with. That's basically the only time I buy any Power Rangers or Star Wars Black Series stuff too, when I find them under that $10 price point.

I think Hasbro should start making the Retro cards the standard packaging for the line, especially if its gonna be made with more sturdy materials than the Walmart ones.

Normally I like the retro cards as I've got a ton of them for Marvel Legends, but for consistency I'd personally like to see them stick with what they started with for this line. I know that I'm out if they fully switch to retro card packaging. I personally don't want two different types of packaging and those big retro cards take up a lot of space and are harder to protect than the perfectly stackable little plastic rectangles. 😃  However, I'm also not their core consumer for this line as it's probably 4th/5th down in priority as far as lines that I collect - so they should definitely cater to whomever is buying the most!

I was going to skip Big Boa until I saw that picture of him fighting Quick Kick. I was just thinking what a ridiculous character Quick Kick was. I mean who would go into combat dressed like that? Maybe once for some weird reason, but not on a regular basis. Not in a modern army. 

Then I saw the picture of him fighting Big Boa. That's why you want a guy like Quick Kick on your team. Because they have Big Boa.

Fair point.

Pretty Awesome wave, already pre-ordered most of them, Techno Viper, Quick Kick, Airbourne, Retro Scarlett and Big Boa, not really that into the Anniversary figures, they are of nobody and cost quite a bit for nobodys, but if ever they go on sale I'd be tempted into buying them, but I have a feeling people are going to hoard them as army builders.

I ended up preordering 3 big boas. One for my cobra/dreadnok display, one for my work desk (where i have a display of random figures on there) and a 3rd to keep MIB.

Also, since I really dug those vs. Quick Kick pics...I got a hold of the ML comic Shang-Chi lol. Imo, it looks better than the Quick kick figure.

The Classified Retro figures prove what I have saying all along, 6" versions of the original 80's figures are what sells the best.  Not to mention that they look the best as well.  Now if G.I. Joe Classified would just go full Retro...

Ehh, they’re smart enough to have licensed a full 80’s retro line to Super 7. Slavishly tying the Classified line to 40 year old designs is like  filming a new tv series in 480i resolution.

Besides Cobra Commander, most characters have now gotten a Retro version even if it didn't come in retro packaging. I wish they would drop all the revisionist elements too, but once they finally release a real version of the property's most popular character (and yes, that's CC, not Snake Eyes), then I will be happy.
