G.I. Joe toys in the 80’s were all about action figures and vehicles. Some may even argue that the vehicles were more crucial to the line’s success than the figures. While the pending 6” G.I. Joe: Classified action figure line has yet to be officially confirmed by Hasbro, I thought it would be fun to speculate on what vehicles Hasbro might consider doing in 6” scale for such a line. Large vehicles such as a Skystriker XP-14F combat jet or Mauler M.B.T.T. tank would be awesome to see, but the size of those vehicles probably make them impractical for Hasbro to do in 6” scale. Even a smaller Cobra HISS tank would likely not be doable for 6” figures. However there are a number of smaller vehicles that Hasbro has done in the past for both the Joe’s and Cobra that might be workable in this scale and, more importantly, affordable to the consumer. Here is my list of those vehicles that I hope Hasbro considers making for the rumored Classified line. G.I. Joe Jet Mobile Pulsion Unit (Jump) The good ole Joe Jetpack seems like a fairly easy one for Hasbro to do. You don’t even necessarily need to include the launch pad and command console. Just throw in some cool blast-off effects and maybe some additional weapons, and I think you would have a great item that folks would likely be willing to buy multiples of. G.I. Joe Triple T Tank This one would only be desirable if Hasbro ends up giving us a 6” SGT. Slaughter figure which I am not even sure is possible with Slaughter’s name likely tied up with the WWE, a license currently held by Mattel. G.I. Joe Mirage Motorcycle This is one of two motorcycles Hasbro could do and in my opinion the cooler of the two choices. The original Mirage toy has a side car with a cannon that would allow you to seat a second figure. G.I. Joe Rapid Fire Motorcycle (RAM) This is the second motorcycle Hasbro could do, and probably the easier of the two for them to make. The RAM (like the Mirage) has a sidecar, but it was smaller and only featured a 20mm cannon. There was no room for a second figure. Cobra Ferret ATV The bad guys had their own type of motorcycle in the form of a 4-wheel ATV. This one could fit two figures on it and had a side cannon and missiles. Honestly I would rather see a Cobra Stinger Jeep, but that is another vehicle I think would be too big to be doable. Cobra C.L.A.W. (Covert Light Aerial Weapon) This jet glider was always a favorite Cobra vehicle of mine as a kid, so I would love to see them do this one in 6” form. Cobra Flight Pod (Trouble Bubble) Truthfully, Cobra had all the cool small vehicles, and I think this 1 seater pod would make a great 6” scale vehicle. Cobra F.A.N.G. (Fully Armed Negator Gyrocopter) This one might be pushing the limits in the size department for being doable, but I think it might just be small enough to work in 6” scale. It’s small one seater helicopter with a front cannon and 2 missiles on each side. It’s one of the original Cobra vehicles Hasbro made, and one of the coolest even to this day. Cobra S.N.A.K.E. Battle Armor This exo-suit is another classic Cobra vehicle I think would be a perfect fit for a 6” line. This was actually the very first G.I. Joe vehicle I owned as a kid, so it definitely holds some sentimental value for me. Serpentor’s Air Chariot Another vehicle that would only be desirable if we got the specific figure that is meant to go with it, in this case Serpentor. Unlike SGT. Slaughter, I think Serpentor has a much better chance of getting the 6” figure treatment which makes his chariot a must. Zartan’s Swamp Skier (Chameleon) It’s hard to think if we get a 6” G.I. Joe action figure line that at some point we won’t get a Zartan figure. While I think most of us would be happy with just Zartan alone, including him with his Swamp Skier like they did with the original figure would be an added bonus. Incorporating the color change feature wouldn’t even be a must. Let us know what vehicles you would like to see Hasbro do for a 6" G.I. Joe action figure line in the COMMENTS SECTION below.

UPDATE: An additional image featuring the Hasbro box the figure s UPDATE: An additional image featuring the Hasbro box the figure shipped in has been added which suggest this may be this year's SDCC exclusive. The Box is labled GIJoe Elite Convention Set. We will continue to update as more details become available. Liam gives us a heads UPDATE: Liam gives us a heads up that images giving us our first look at Hasbro's rumored 6" G.I.Joe Classified figures have hit social media. We aren't sure where the images originated from but we got them from the Full Force Podcast. The images show some type of deluxe version of Snake-Eyes. There have been rumors of some type of exclusive figure being released right out the gate for this line, likely to go up for order or pre-order this weekend. We suspect this will be that figure. The figure comes with fancy packaging and a number of accessories. My guess there will be a regular version that will not feature the outer packaging or quit as many accessories . One accessory that seems to be missing is Snake-Eyes' pet wolf named Timber. It's also worth noting that the artwork on the box is very similar to that used for the new G.I. Joe: War on Cobra App Game that was released earlier this year. Check out the images for this figure below and stay-tuned for more details as they become available. We should definitely hear more on this on Saturday during Hasbro's Toy Fair event which kicks off at 1:30PM ET. We will have full coverage of the event here on TNI. We are a week away from Toy Fair, which means we are likely a week away from Hasbro officially unveiling their rumored 6" G.I. Joe Classifed line of action figures. With that Walmart has listed two different assortments for the line on their website. Assortment 1 - SKU: 169988830 Assortment 2 - SKU SKU: 869896266 Unfortunately the website does not provide any specific details like images or which figures will be in each assortment. Assortment 1 is rumored to include Snake-Eyes, Duke, Destro, Scarlet and Roadblock. There have been a number of rumors floating around such as Build-A-Figures, Variants and store exclusives. This might be one of the most anticipated reveals for next weeks Toy Fair event, so be sure to check back On Saturday, February 22 around 2pm ET to get all the details, assuming they don't leak out sooner.
With word of Hasbro’s new 6” G.I. Joe Classified line rumored to be coming later this year, we wondered what the actual figures might end up looking like? We will all likely get the answer to that question later next month during Toy Fair, which kicks off on February 22. Still, that’s a ways away. So we thought we would check out eBay, and see what was out there in the way of 6” G.I. Joe custom figures. Obviously it’s not the same thing, but we thought it might give us a good idea for what we might see officially next month. Note: The items featured in this article should not be construed as me personally endorsing them as something to buy. I have never handled this items in-hand. My opinions are based solely on what I see and read in the action description. You may want to look into the items featured here, but I would definitely recommend you do more research on any item before making an actual purchase. This first three figures come from eBay seller mytoycave-5. I don’t know if he actually made the figures or is just reselling them. I like how they combined the 6” figure with a Hall Of Heroes 3.75’ figure. This is an idea Hasbro might want to actually consider, so both scale collectors will be happy. I doubt they will, but I really do like the idea. The first figure is based on one of my favorite characters, Major Bludd. I expect Hasbro’s figures will have a bit more modern sculpt design, but I do like this custom. I like how it incorporates an ab-crunch joint even with the chest plate. Click here to see more of this figure. Next up is Joe member Low Light. Hasbro gave us a really nice 3.75” Low Light several years ago with lots of cool accessories. If we end up with a 6” version, I would expect no less. This custom also has a lot of accessories which makes it pretty cool. Click here to see more of this figure. The final custom figure from this seller is based on the Cobra Infantry Soldier. If I was a betting man, I would say this is one Hasbro will definitely end up doing. The custom isn’t bad, but I do expect Hasbro’s version will look better. Click here to see more of this figure. eBay seller followurheart0914 has up for auction this 6” custom for G.I. Joe member Beach Head. This custom seems to do a pretty good job of capturing the likeness of Beach Head’s body, but the head could use some work. It’s to smooth looking. Hopefully if Hasbro gives us an official version, it will have a mask more in keeping with the original lined ski-like mask. Click here to see more of this figure. The master of disguise, Zartan is another fan-favorite that I really hope Hasbro plans on giving us in 6” form. This custom is being offered by eBay seller supermegabot, and while it doesn’t have any weapons I do like the clear chest plate. It would be even cooler if the skin changed colors in sunlight. Click here to see more of this figure. Storm Shadow is probably one of the most popular characters in the G.I. Joe mythos, only second to Snake-Eyes. So it’s no surprise that people like to make customs of him. This first of two being featured here, is being offered by eBay seller followurheart0914. He has created a figure based more on the original second version of the charatcer, with the black spots on it. I assume if or when Hasbro does one, it will be based more on the original costume. This custom figure looks decent, but the hood needs some work. I do like all the weapon accessories included. Click here to see more of this figure. This second Storm Shadow is being offered by eBay seller zackmack3. This one is seemingly based on a bit more modern design of the character, with the big Cobra symbol on the front of his mask. I actually like the look of this custom figure, and wouldn’t mind seeing Hasbro give us a similar version. Click here to see more of this figure. Next up is our first of two Snake-Eyes custom figures. This one is being offered by eBay seller followurheart0914. Out of the two featured here, this is probably my least favorite, but I really like all the gear included with it. Especially the realistic army bag located on the back of the figure. Click here to see more of this figure. This last custom which is of another Snake-Eyes, is probably my favorite of the bunch. It is being offered by eBay seller jnrstudios. The articulation looks nice and I like the clean detail on the visor. I think this custom gives us our best idea of what official 6” G. I. Joe figures will look like, if or when Hasbro releases them.
