  1. A company by the name of Super Impulse is launching a new line of 1.25" micro figures called "World's Smallest". These figures have three points of articulation, and includes a replica of the original action figure blister card, for display and storage, display stand and accessories. The are doing figures for G.I. Joe, Transformers, TMNT, Masters of the Universe, Power Rangers and Horror characters. Look for these to start seeing release in June and throughout the summer. You can pre-order these from our sponsor BigBadToyStore.com.

  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. You may or may not know the name, but your will probably recognize his work if you grew up in the 80's playing with action figures. Hector Garrido was the legendary GI Joe Blister Pack Artist for Hasbro's Real American Hero line. He helped bring those figures to life on the shelf pegs found in many toy stores during the 80's. We are sadden to learn that he passed away in his sleep on the 19th of this month. He will be missed, but his work will live on in the hearts and minds of many G.I. Joe fans. YO JOE!

  8. 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???
  9. UPDATE 2: Additional out of package images have been added via ponkung. He breaks the figure down with the following articulation: - Ball Joint Head - Hinge Neck Peg - Ball Lower Neck - Ball/Disc Shoulders - Butterfly Shoulders - Double Hinge Elbows - Ball/Disc Hands - AB Crunch - Ball Waist - Ball with Swivel Thigh - Double Hinge Knees - Swivel Boots Top - Ball/Rocket Ankle -Backpack has another hole to hold sword sheath. -Sword sheath can also attach to Snake Eyes's back. -Silencer can be used with both pistol and submachine gun. 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.

  13. Sketch Things, in this review gives us his best version of the classic G.I. Joe #21 Silent Interlude comic which featured Snake-Eyes and had no words. In this case he takes a look at the new Hasbro 6" G.I. Joe Classified exclusive version of Snake-Eyes figure without saying one word. This exclusive version of the figure is offered currently only through Hasbro's website for $39.99. While not yet officially confirmed by Hasbro, there should be a non-exclusive version of Snake-Eyes without as many accessories or fancy packaging released in the regular line. Besides Snak-Eyes, the first wave in the regular line will include Scarlet, Duke, Roadblock and one other which is rumored to be Destro. The regular version of Snake-Eyes should only cost $20. Wave one of the G.I. Joe Classified figures is available for pre-order now at our sponsor BigBadToyStore.com. In the video you get a really nice look at all the articulation this figure features which seems to rival even the best Marvel Legends figures currently on the market.
