  1. 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.
  2. It would seem the magic toy fairies left Robo from Fwoosh a little free gift in his P.O. Box with this as of yet un-released G.I. Joe Classified Cobra Island Major Bludd figure from Hasbro. So of course he did a review of the figure which gives us our best look at the figure so far. The figure here in the United States will be released as a Target exclusive. As we first reported to you yesterday the figure should cost $19.99 and start hitting Target stores on or around May 19th. The DPCI# for the figure is 087 16 9916. From what I can tell it looks like at least starting off most Targets will get 1 solid case of 6 figures. It also looks like Hasbro is spreading out the release of these Cobra Island figures, releasing one at a time as opposed to in groups like we had seen with the previous Cobra Island exclusive figures. The next one which we think is a Target exclusive, all we know about it is that it's code named Kepler and that it looks to be released in July. That one has a DCPI# of 087-16-4527. It's unknown at this time if that is the rumored Barbecue figure or something else. When Hasbro decides to officially announce this Bludd figure is unknown. Hasbro has stated they would be putting news out in June to try and address the whole exclusive issues, but Bludd should already be out by then. We also have no idea when or if Target might list this on their website. Since it looks like physical stores are sticking to that pattern of only one case at a time for Bludd, if this one is going to be any easier to get then I would say it would only be if Target makes them more easily available online. I will tell you that it's my feeling, and I put myself in this camp. If Bludd who is a key character is not more easily available for purchase at cost than the previous Target exclusive Classified figures, even most of those trying to hold out a last shred of hope this line will get easier to collect will walk away from it. Check out images for the figure below and lets all hope Hasbro can get their act together on this line.
  3. Thanks to Matt for the heads up, we have a look at what is quit possibly the design Hasbro will be using for their as of now rumored G.I. Joe Classified Major Bludd 6" figure. Shown via 80sTees is a new shirt featuring the character. While not 100% exact, this matches up pretty closely with artwork of the character that leaked out back in January from the back of the packaging for the upcoming Flint figure. You can check out images of both the shirt and the packaging art below. While Hasbro has yet to officially announce a new Classified Bludd action figure in the works, it's long been rumored along with the likes of Barbecue and the Alley Viper. Retail listings for all of these figures along with Flint and Lady Jaye hit the net last year. Out of the figures we saw listings for, Flint and Lady Jaye are the only two Hasbro has officially confirmed at this time. From this image it appears as if Bludd has updated his eye patch with a new cybernetic eye implant that glows red. This seems to fit in the overall futuristic feel that Hasbro has said the Classified line is based on. Out of all the Cobra figures we've seen released in this line so far, this one seems to depart the most from the characters original look. Never-the-less I think it looks pretty cool and still retains the overall look and feel of the Cobra mercenary. Let us know below, would you be happy with this look for a new Major Bludd Classified figure?
