IGN.com has blown the lid off the new upcoming G.I. Joe: Classified 6″ line this morning, revealing first looks at Scarlett and Roadblock, as well as official images of Snake Eyes which was leaked earlier this week.
Simply put – I’m ecstatic.
I can already anticipate a flurry of complaints about the figures not being 100% authentic to the vintage designs, but I gotta say, I love this direction. Taking inspiration from the classics, but with some great updates, these figures look collector friendly and fun.
Hasbro Pulse has currently listed the pre-order for Snake Eyes and according to IGN, both Scarlett and Roadblock will be available for pre-order tomorrow.
Also, Hasbro Pulse has a great video up looking at the process behind the design of Snake Eyes and his packaging and it’s chock full of awesome detail.
Don’t look now, but 2020 is off to a great G.I. Joe start, and I’m sure there will be a lot more fun stuff to see tomorrow at Toy Fair!
I gotta say, it feels good to type those words. It seems like a very long time since there was something G.I. Joe-wise to look forward to at Toy Fair, but this year promises to turn that all around.
You’ll notice that the main page of GeneralsJoesReborn has undergone a minor facelift as we work towards the Hasbro Collector’s Event next Saturday. The countdown clock you see above expires at 1:30pm, which is when the Hasbro Collectors Event begins, but please keep in mind, the latest show room images may not be posted until later that evening.
While I am not able to travel to New York next weekend myself, Chris from The Full Force will be there in my stead, representing both GeneralsJoes and The Full Force podcast, so you know we’ll get some fantastic photo and video coverage live from NYC as soon as humanly possible. You’ll want to be sure to follow:
I expect to see some news about the G.I. Joe: Classified six inch line, the anticipated Snake Eyes movie line(s), and perhaps even more. While Jazwares news likely will not hit alongside the Hasbro stuff on Saturday, I’m sure more of that intel will be available throughout the weekend and into the following week as the official Toy Fair kicks off.
Regardless of what we see, the anticipation itself is a breath of fresh air and I find myself extremely excited to await the reports from the presentation and the showroom tour next weekend.
Good stuff coming in a week, and fantastic stuff coming for 2020, look forward to sharing it all with you!
