    G.I. Joe Classified 6" Line By Hasbro

    I know it's still only a rumour but I guess it's better they have their own thread.
    If Hasbro do release these it will be a dream come true.
    Thankfully if this is true there will be no hypothetical G.I. Joe line by Super 7.

    The rumoured first wave is:
    Snake Eyes
    Duke
    Scarlett
    Roadblock
    Destro

    Ok, This is good to have it's own thread. I do hope for two versions of Snake Eyes, or perhaps multiple heads. Would Timber be a must? I basically want them to match their more familiar and famous versions from ARAH with all the same accessories, with a few extra neat things thrown in.

    Others thrown in for a wave two or three: Cobra Trooper with at least two different heads (for different races), Shipwreck, Storm Shadow, Baroness, Cobra Commander. I think I'd be happy after that. Ok, I'd like Spirit as well. And Zartan. Ugh, ok, I'll take Leatherneck, Flint, LAdy Jay, Firefly, Beach head, and Hawk. Dang, there's too many!

    For vehicles, I'd like the Cobra FANG, Joe RAM, Cobra CLAW, maybe Joe VAMP. The vehicles cannot be too big since the figures are 6". But it'd be amazing to get a HISS tank.

    They definitely need to be ARAH designs.

    Snake Eyes definitely needs Timber and a load of weapons and swords.
    As much as I like V1, I could make do with just V2 with an alternate V1 head. Maybe later they could release a V1 figure after they get more A list characters released. Stalker, Firefly, Baroness, Flint, Beachhead and Wet-Suit.

    I wonder if they could make Sgt. Slaughter?

    I would ideally like the ARAH designs, but slightly updated with modern tac vests. They need to do this at some point anyway, I feel, lest the tech always remains 80s.

    Duke could have his classic bandolier, plus a modern kevlar vest, packed in. If they can cost out that extra accessory, that is.

    It sounds like this 6" GI Joe Classified line will be part of the overarching Evergreen effort, which from what I have read, will almost certainly be ARAH based. And really, what else could it be at this point. Just from a marketing perspective.

    Well they could go for more updated present day military looks something like one of the IDW comics with outfits that are similar in colour to the ARAH designs but I don't think that would be a smart move.
    I really hope they keep them as close to the cartoon and you designs as possible.

    I've only ever been a casual Joe fan, but I could be down for a few of these. I'd certainly pick up Scarlet, Duke, Cobra Commander, Destro, Baroness, Snake Eyes, Storm Shadow, Shipwreck, Lady Jaye, Firefly, and maybe some troopers.

    They need to start with ARAH designs, that's the sole purpose of this new line. I have the assumption that is going to be a literall trnaslation of what Hasbro has done with Marvel Legends and SW BS, they shall respect the orginal designs and throw a new one probably for conventions or exclusives with the upcoming "Snake Eyes" movie.

    Ideally I picture wave 2 this way
    Gral Hawk v1
    Cobra Commander
    Baroness
    Cobra Tropper
    Gung Ho

    Wave 3
    Lady Jaye
    Flint
    Storm Shadow
    Zartan
    Beach Head

    And there too many I want: pretty much all ARAH 85 and 86 roster, Matt & Junkyard, Tunnel Rat, all Storm Shadow and Snake Eyes versions, Dreadnoks.... Hasbro would drag me back into collecting this line the same way I used to do with MOTU Classics

    I picture Vipers and Troopers in army builder two packs like the MOTUC Eternian Guards and Marvel Legends AIM and Hydra packs. Alternate heads, vests, gear, belts.

    If that is a price point then IMHO about half of the O13 including Hawk v1 can be done in a single release.

    Only Stalker, Scarlett, Snake Eyes, and Cobra Commander would ABSOLUTELY need to be single packed.

    And people just buy multiples of the Joe two pack and a single Cobra Trooper/Officer pack for the rest of the O13.

    This.

    If they're just 6" versions of the classic toy designs, I'm in. I don't want redesigns or anything "updated."

    Yeah that's why I stuck with 1/18th scale for Star Wars. BS Wave 1 ANH Han looked MEH. If you can't get me to buy Han for your new Star Wars Line I'm out. No worries Hasbro, you got plenty of my money on TVC line. Yeah I backed the Barge.

    Yikes....don't know if I can get into 6" GI Joe. My poor wallet!!

    But I'd still pick up a few of the main characters if they look good.

    It's been a while since I bought a Joe. Though my figures are still on a shelf in the spare room. Very dusty though!

    I prefer the Specialist Trakker figure than the Matt Trakker figure from IDW.

    That inspired Condor chopper backpack is really awesome. The figure and backpack is really well translated to G.I.Joe.

    Aside from that gold gun for Destro being dumb, how can they do two figures so right, and the other three so poorly...

    Destro looks much better than the other figures in the line. My only complaint is the lack of a chromed head.

    This line has been a roller coaster. I thought I was all in the moment I saw Snake Eyes... until I saw roadblock and Scarlett. I decided I would just wait until I see them on store pegs, and let the impulse version of me decide. But man, Destro gives me a lot of faith in this line. I just preordered wave 1 on bbts. This line will be replacing my 25th display shelves. I will be doing a lot of custom painting and accessories though, to align the figures a little closer to ARAH. But this is the first time I’ve been pumped about this line in a while. Yo Joe! Way to go Hasbro!

    There is no way I would "Yo Joe!" Hasbro on this line. A target demographic should not have to repaint the line.

    Yes, the gold remind of iron grenadier Destro. Anyway, 2 hit, 3 missed, maybe the last reveal will make me decide at least to jump on wave 1.

    I still can't myself going all in on this line.
    3-3/4 will still be kept, that's for sure.

    Getting the whole wave 1 the most, cherry pick maybe or sticking to Snake Eyes only the least is what I have to decide soon.

    Whatever it is, it is nice to own at least one of these for representation on my collection.

    Seriously, I don't get why Duke is being clumped so roundly into the "fail" bucket of this line. To me, he is much closer in most respects to Destro, in terms of his faithfulness to his classic design, than Scarlett or Roadblock. I mean look at the pictures again, aside from the shin things (which IDK, could be removable), Duke and Destro look very Classic to me. Destro a bit more, but Duke still very much.







    EDIT:

    Here's something I just noticed, it looks like Hasbro started posting the old Sunbow episodes on their Youtube channel two days ago. I think this is a first for Sunbow GI Joe on Youtube.

    He looks too young and the lower half is beyond ARAH-uninspired.

    To the first 3, Duke really is much closer ARAH wise, but there are really some small unnecessary things that are too many which makes it off at least for me, like the shoulder extra color than the rest of the upper uniform. Then there's the gloved hands, the armory shins, the face for me has a too intense expression too.

    Well that is just me. Though this will not replace my 3-3/4 inches scale collection, I decided to get the wave 1 at least together with the exclusive SE. Will I get the next waves? As a joe fan I wish I would but now wave 1 it is.

    I'd agree there. I just took a look at some of the other Dukes that have been made on YoJoe.com... and out of the 52 redesigns that Duke has, I'd say this is probably my 3rd or 4th favorite. Seriously, he's been remade a LOT over the years... hard to REALLY go off the rails with him. If goofy shin guards are the worst thing to happen, that's probably a win.


    Just saw a packaged version of these... and Good GRIEF is that a lot of wasted packaging. I heard somewhere that Hasbro was considering 'going green' with no/less plastic packaging and waste... and they seriously dropped the ball on these packagings. They're at least TWICE as big as they need to be. And therefore going to take up twice the shelf space... I feel bad for any moc collectors....

    Yeah I know. Now I will have a Snake Eyes and Destro, in a Joe line, but not Duke, Roadblock or Scarlett. Hopefully we’ll get re release of those core characters later. Duke and Roadblock just need new lower legs and maybe new gloves but Scarlet needs new lower legs and a new portrait of not a new figure all together.

    Luckily SE and Destro will fit into my Marvel Legends collection very well.
