  1. Hasbro has launched a new official G.I. Joe website, and with that they released artwork for 20 G.I. Joe team members and 20 Cobra members. While there is no guarantee all 40 characters will be released in 6" Classified action figure form, its a good bet the ones that end up being released will look similar to what we see here. Out of the 40 characters featured on the site we know Duke, Scarlett, Roadblock, Snake-Eyes, Destro and Cobra Commander are getting the action figure treatment. The other characters features on the site include the following: G.I. Joe -Barbecue -Chuckles -Cover Girl -Doc -Dusty -Flint -Gung-Ho -Hawk -Helix -Jinx -Lady Jaye -Ripcord -Rock N' Roll -Sci-Fi -Stalker -Wild Bill Cobra -Alley Viper -Cobra B.A.T. -Baroness -Buzzer -Cobra Trooper -Cobra Viper -Firefly -Major Bludd -Red Ninja Viper -Ripper -Road Pig -Scrap-Iron -Storm Shadow -Tomax & Xamot -Torch -Zarana -Zartan We have mirrored the artwork for each character below in our GALLERY. We should note for some characters like Doc, Sc-Fi, Cobra Viper Cobra Soldier, Cobra B.A.T. and a few others, they seem to be using the same artwork used for the original toys. It's unclear if that means Hasbro just hasn't gotten around to re-designing those characters, isn't planning on making figures of those characters or will just retain their original looks. Because we don't know if Hasbro plans on releasing all these characters as 6" Classified figures, its hard to say why they don't have updated artwork or looks. Out of characters featured here, which ones do you most want to see made as 6" Classified figures? Let us know in the COMMENTS SECTION.
  2. These G.I. Joe statues from Pop Culture Shock Collectibles are inspired by their classic animated appearance and are 1/8 scale. Made of PVC, each includes a base for easy display.

  3. 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.
  4. Looks like Hasbro is going to be giving G.I. Joe the same hi-end role-play treatment they have done for other lines including Marvel Legends, Star Wars, Power Rangers and Ghostbusters. Today they announced this new G.I. Joe Snake-Eyes mask which will be sold as a Gamestop exclusive and cost $119. There aren't many details on the mask but it will be released in October.
  5. Ever since word broke earlier in the year that Hasbro was bringing G.I. Joe back to the toy aisle, many have been wondering what that would mean for 3 3/4” collectors. While Hasbro’s initial announcement at Toy Fair was for a new 6” Classified line, those who grew up on G.I. Joe in the 80’s and prefer smaller scale figures were left wondering, “What about me?” This week the fansite Hisstank dug up some new listings on the Walmart website for a new G.I.Joe exclusive line called “G.I.Joe Retro”. While there is nothing about these listings that suggest what the scale of the figures will be, their assumption seems to be that they will be 3 3/4”. Hasbro these days seems to favor 6” figures, but precedent exists for them doing 3 3/4” size figures as Walmart exclusives. We saw them do this a few years ago with Star Wars, when they released a limited line of articulated 3 3/4” Black Series figures. Still the word “Retro” could refer to a number of things. After all, the original G.I. Joe figures released in the 60’s where actually 12” figures with cloth uniforms. “Retro” is also a term often used with 8” Mego style figures with cloth outfits. The word “Retro” also could simply refer to the outfits. The new 6” Classified figures feature classic 80’s characters in updated uniforms, so this new Walmart line could simply be the 6” Classified figures repainted with their classic outfits. The possibilities of what this Retro line could be based on our current info is infinite, but let’s assume for a moment this in fact is a new line of 3 3/4” figures. If so, that begs a whole slew of new questions. Hasbro has released a number of different 3 3/4” lines over the years with different designs and looks. There was the original “A Real American Hero” line with the classic O-ring design, then there is the more modern 25th Anniversary figures that ditched the O-rings. So if Hasbro released new 3 3/4” figures, which route would they go? Could they give us something totally new or even just shrunk down versions of their Classified figures? The Walmart listings even indicate some kind of HISS Tank vehicle in the works. So would that just be the same HISS Tank Hasbro has released many times over the years since the 80’s? Even IF Hasbro ends us giving a new 3 3/4” line, what are they going to be able to release that will make most collectors happy and be something they don’t already have???
  6. Hasbro Pulse will be hosting a twofer for Fans First Friday on June 26th with a Transformers and GI Joe Events. Judging from the times, these are going to be TWO DIFFERENT reveals, not a crossover reveal, but you never know. Read on to see the official announcement and details.
  7. Ok, now that the new line has been revealed, discussed, praised, criticized and even vituperated, what characters and versions would you like to see in the Classified series?.
  8. Storm Shadow and Snake Eyes have been redesigned by Japanese SF artist Nihei Tsutomu.

  12. Back in February during Toy Fair, Hasbro released this pretty cool poster for their G.I. Joe Classified line. The poster is also featured prominently on the back of the packaging for the figures in the first wave. We know the poster features images of how the five characters released in the first wave look. Those characters being Duke, Snake-Eyes, Scralett, Roadblock and Destro. With that in mind, we figure it's a good bet that this poster also gives us a glimpse at future figures yet to be announced, and how they will look in the Classified line. Based on retail listings that have surfaced online, we have a good idea that the second wave will include 6 figures, 3 of which will be based on the upcoming Snake-Eyes movie, and 3 that will be non-movie. Other than Snake-Eyes, we really don't know what the other 2 movie figures will be, but for today we want to focus on the 3 non-movie figures in wave 2. Going back to Hasbro's poster, not only did it show the 5 figures in wave 1, it so happens to show three additional characters in the forefront. Those three characters include Cobra Commander, Baroness and Gung-Ho. Now this is just pure speculation on my part, but if I was a betting man, I would say those will be the three non-movie figures released in wave 2. So lets take a closer look at those characters from the poster so that we might get an idea of how their figures will look. First we have Gung-Ho. Overall he seems to be staying true to his original look. The biggest difference here is that he has decided to start wearing a shirt underneath his vest. I guess he got tired of being mistaken as a member of the Village People. The colors on his vest seemed to be toned down as well. We can't see his lower body, but my guess is he will feature some type of camo pattern pants. He also seems to be sporting some type of weird wrist gauntlet on his right arm. I wonder if the Marine Corps symbol that he used to prominently display on his chest as a tattoo will now be featured on the back of his vest? Next up is Baroness. Looking ravishing as ever in this poster with her long black air and glasses. Overall this look seems to be pretty much in keeping with here original toy look. The only real difference I can make out is, she now seems to sport cobra-like shoulder pads with gold trim. It will be interesting to see how that translates into action figure form. Finally we have Cobra Commander. This is the one I am most eagerly anticipating. From the poster it looks like Hasbro is going to start out with the battle helmet look, though it would be awesome if they also included an alternate hooded headsculpt. The blue helmet itself is a bit modified from the original version. The sides of the helmet now come down the side of his face, but he does still have the iconic silver faceplate. It looks like there also might be some type of added sculpting on the sides. Snake scales maybe with some gold trim on the bottom. He has the Cobra symbol displayed nicely on his chest like with the original, and this version seems to be sporting a cape which is a nice touch. The right shoulder may also have some type of epaulettes on it to help distinguish him as Cobra's leader. Besides the 8 main characters featured on the poster, there a few other noticeable troop-builder type characters featured in the background for Cobra as well as multiple iconic vehicles for both sides. It's hard to say whether these were included just for looks, or if these are more hints by Hasbro of future things we might see for the line. I found it strange Hasbro choose to include the Cobra Alley Viper on here. Out of all the different variation of Cobra soldiers they could have chosen, the gaudy orange troops seems like an odd choice. If this is a clue for a future figure, it looks like they will be keeping their overall same basic look and design, including the large shields they are known to carry. The helmets have been modified, and in fact I think look much better than the original design. The Red Ninja is another odd choice to me, though I guess you can never go wrong with Ninja's. These guys also have nice updated looks over the original versions. The outfits look more armored and less pajama like. Makes you wonder what kind of updates they might have in store for Storm Shadow when they get around to making him, which you know they will sooner or later. As for the vehicles featured in the poster, I don't think there is much chance these will show up in the 6" Classified line, but you never know. Anyway we will take a quick look at them For Cobra, we have the classic H.I.S.S. Tank which looks just like it did in the 80's. If G.I. Joe was ever given the Haslab treatment, I could see them doing a 6" scale H.I.S.S. with driver. The Cobra Fang Helicopter is also represented, and also looks very much like the original 80's version. This is one I think Hasbro could pull off if they ever decided to give us 6" scale vehicles. Also note pilots have been included. The Cobra Night Raven jet while awesome I think would be way to big for a 6" scale line. Would love to see a 6" Strato-Viper figure though. The Cobra Rattler is another awesome vehicle, but also I think two big to be practical for a 6" scale line. A Wild Weasel figure would be cool though. The Cobra Trouble Bubble, like the Fang I think would work nicely for this line. This poster seems to have also given them actual pilots which would be kinda cool to see in figure form. On the G.I. Joe side of things we have the Dragonfly and S.H.A.R.C. Both of which don't seem terribly likely for a 6" line. At best I would say that maybe one day we will get a Wild Bill and Deep Six figure in 6" scale. Both the Skystriker and Conquest X-30 are represented on the poster, neither of which I see getting vehicles for this line. I am not even sure how much demand there would be for an Ace and Slip-Stream figure??? The tank shown here I think is supposed to be the MOBAT, along with the Bridge Layer and Sky Hawk. Out of these three vehicles, only the Sky Hawk I think would be doable in a 6" scale line. I could see them doing a 6" Steeler figure, more so than Tollbooth. Here we see the G.I. Joe Wolverine and H.A.V.O.C.. Neither vehicle seems terribly doable for a 6" line, but Cover Girl is is a figure I think we could definitely see at some point. Not sure how well a Cross Country figure would work in this day an age. I also have know idea why they have a Cobra Firebat jet with the Joes. Shown here seems to be some modified version of the VAMP Mark II jeep as well as the Armadillo Tank. Both are vehicles I think could work in 6" scale, especially the tank. If we ever get a Clutch figure, I wonder if he will have the green or beige colors on? This looks to be the Mauler tank. Can't see the tank happening due to size, but wold be cool to see a Heavy Metal figure. Finally we have what I think is either a modified VAMP Mark I or perhaps the newer Desert Striker jeep. The second vehicle I am totally unfamiliar with. Looks like some type of tank with a weird missile launching canopy that pops up in the back. If this is based on an actual Joe vehicle, it must be one of the more obscure ones developed later on in the line.
  13. I've been collecting since I was a child in the 1980s; much of what I have reflects what I kept as a kid (G.I. Joe, Transformers, Voltron, Star Wars) but I have thinned it down to what I can show off to reduce a bunch of bins in storage. It is quite diverse with a lot of smaller toy lines represented; some of my favorites including Starcom, Captain Power, ExoSquad and COPS to name a few. The packaged Ninja Turtles were found in my grandparents attic when we cleaned out their house (fresh with a 1988 Kmart receipt). Cabinets are the Billy cases from IKEA with the optional doors and two DETOLF cases I got from a friend. My wife gifted me the basement when we moved in to do with as I pleased, these are the current results after 10 years of display.
