  1. It's December and Christmas is in the air. The holiday season is in full bloom, and it's not uncommon for people to get the holiday blues, but it's not often that it happens to our figures! We checked on a few figures and asked them: "What's up with all the blue?" First, the G.I. Joe Classified Series Hasbro Pulse Con 2021 Exclusive "Master of Disguise" Zartan (that's a mouthful!). Some people noticed that, due to the cold weather during the delivery, their Zartan arrived already blue to their homes. But some other have noticed their Zartan turning blue for no reason during the day too! We contacted the office of Doc, the G.I.Joe Medic, who told us that if your Zartan stays blue for more than 4 hours, please see a doctor. This week, we got our first peek at an upcoming wave of Star Wars: The Black Series figures (available here) , and we couldn't help but notice that Bib Fortuna has a weird shade of blue on his face. After a quick investigation, it turns out that good ol'Bib went a bit too heavy on the blue milk... The Tatooine medical center confirmed to us that it one of the side effects of drinking too much blue milk, and that Bib Fortuna will eventually be fine. He might even end up getting a gig in a future commercial... Lastly, we inquired about the new Jack the Frosty Elf figure from the Naugthy or Nice Collection from Fresh Monkey Fiction (available here). The recently revealed Elf is definitely bluer than his co-workers, so we asked if it was the cold weather or blue milk that were the cause, but we got a reply from Santa's office: "No, it's just depression." More news at 11:00... Da ba dee, dabba da?
  2. G.I. Joe Collector's worst fears seem to be coming to fruition as reports are coming out now suggesting that the long rumored upcoming 6" G.I. Joe Classified Major Bludd figure will be a Target store Cobra Island exclusive. The latest indication of this comes from a report made by HissTank.com saying they have evidence showing a figure listing with the codename Asteroid (F2790) is in fact Major Bludd and it will be a Target store exclusive. This report unfortunately corresponds with my own investigating for the Bludd figure, in that Target has been the only retailer here in the US that I have seen having the figure listed. The only thing that has given me pause in saying it's definitely a Target exclusive is that I've had more than one person tell me the product number seen in the Target system for it didn't match up with the ones used with the previous Cobra Island figures, suggesting perhaps it was a regular release and not a store exclusive. Since Hisstank isn't clear on what they are basing their report on for declaring it a Target exclusive, I can't say how reliable their report really is, but again up until this point I've seen no other retailers showing that Major Bludd would be a figure they can offer in the US, hence leaving the most likely outcome of it being a store exclusive. And if Hisstank is correct, that this is a figure already arriving in the US at the shipping ports, I think it's safe to say other stores would have it in their systems by now if they were going to be carrying it. I also don't think Bludd is the only figure coming to Target. In fact any non-movie figure Hasbro decides to reveal later this week during their Fan-Fest event is likely going to be a store exclusive. Some have speculated that perhaps Hasbro will be able to offer some of these Target exclusives on their own Pulse website. I have know doubt that the UK version of Pulse will since there are no Target's in the UK, but we will have to see if Hasbro is able to allocate any for it's US site. Target might not be to inclined to allow Hasbro to carry one of their in-demand exclusives, but on the other hand I could see Hasbro trying to use these as incentive to get more people to pay to join their Premium service which is supposed to allow people first crack at buying stuff on their website. Yes that is seemingly the hobby we now live in today were a toy company wants you to pay them just have a better chance of being able to buy their products. No matter what, the frustrating nightmare of trying to collect G.I. Joe Classified figures definitely looks like will continue outside of the movie product which I am sure will be much easier to find. Of course until any or all of this is officially confirmed by Hasbro, we will treat it as RUMOR.
  3. We are just a few days away from the official release of Hasbro's next round of Target exclusive G.I. Joe Classified 6" Cobra Island figures which includes the Cobra Viper and Firefly. This is a time of excitement and dread for Joe collectors as both figures are expected to be quit difficult to find on shelves come January 1, which the official on-sale date for the figures. The pre-orders for both of them sold out in seconds back when they were originally listed on the Target website. The figures first started showing up at physical Target stores in CA last week but are technically embargoed from being sold until New Years day. The exact number of figures stores are getting in stock initially is not entirely clear, but from what I can tell it is looking like one case for each figure which comes out to 6 figures for each. Similar to what we saw with the first wave of these Cobra Island exclusives. The Viper being an army builder will likely be the tougher of the two figures to find. I do expect more figure to also be made available online at some point, possibly on the first. Even if they are made available again online on the first, the exact time of day when they would be made available is completely unknown, and once they go up they likely will only last minutes before selling out again. The Target exclusive figures have been a point of high contention which their difficulty in obtaining for many collectors, causing some to just simply wash their hands of the line. Hasbro has promised to try and make these figures more readily available, but at this point I don't think many have much faith in that happening. The Viper figures are already going for over $100 on eBay. I suspect if these two figures continue to be hard to get like the first wave of exclusive were, even more collectors will simply walk away from the line and look to collect something a little more easier to obtain. All I will say is DON"T FEED THE SCALPERS. Anyway while the official sale date isn't until this Friday, a few lucky collectors have managed to snag the figures early. One such collector is Monkey-Paw-Pics who has posted some of the first in-hand images of the Cobra Viper which you can check out below.
  4. We are just a few days away until Hasbro's next Fan-Friday G.I. Joe event, where new reveals are expected to be made on the 6" Classified front. While I know a couple of non-exclusive figures will be announced on Friday, I suspect we will also be seeing more in the way of Target store exclusives. Up until now, hearing the words Target and G.I. Joe exclusives in the same sentence has caused more dread among collectors than the thought of Cobra Commander conquering the world. Back during PulseCon, Hasbro announced two new Target exclusives with Firefly and the Cobra Viper trooper. Both figures had pre-orders that sold out in seconds. The first wave of Target exclusive G.I. Joe Classified figures, which included a Cobra Trooper, Roadblock v2, Beach Head and Baroness with bike also had pre-orders sell out in seconds, Even today they are still very difficult to find and buy at cost. So if we see more Target exclusive figures announced this coming Friday, will there be any real chance of folks being able to get them? I can't say for sure, but I will say that perhaps we got a glimmer of hope in the way of Marvel Legends yesterday. Yesterday Target had up for pre-order two high demand Marvel Legends figures. They had the X-Men Retro Rogue and Gambit figures available for the first time. While the pre-orders for both figures have since sold out, they lasted longer than a few seconds. Rogue was available for over an hour, and Gambit lasted a good part of the day. The reason why those figures didn't sell out in seconds is because Target FINALLY started limiting them to one purchase per person. Target has also been stocking the Marvel Legends exclusives better recently. Both the Storm/Thunderbird 2-pack and Red Hulk figures are currently available for purchase, even though initial stock had sold out. I can't predict what will happen on Friday, but if we see very popular G.I. Joe character(s) announced as Target exclusives, we can only hope Hasbro and Target will give Joe collectors the same respect they've recently been showing Marvel ones. The Hasbro G.I. Joe Live-Stream will take place this Friday (11/20) at 11am ET. Check back here for complete coverage and highlights for everything announced.
