GeneralsJoes Reviews G.I. Joe: Classified Destro

While the reactions to most of the G.I. Joe: Classified reveals were positive, far and away Destro garnered the most enthusiasm. Whether that was because he was so close to his vintage roots or the figure just looked amazing, I’m not sure, but regardless, he was the highlight based on fan opinion.

He comes close to the cream of the crop for me. Very close.

If you want to see just how close, check out my G.I. Joe: Classified Destro review, then click on over to the G.I. Joe: Classified Review Page and compare all of the reviews I’ve done thus far!

G.I. Joe: Classified Destro revealed – and PRE-ORDER is live!

G.I. Joe: Classified Destro revealed – and PRE-ORDER is live!

I can’t quite enter the words for how this Destro makes me feel. I know there have been many stalwart 1:18 scale faithfuls who have turned their noses up at the six inch figures, which they have every right to do. But I think this Destro may just be great enough to convert at least some of them!

Various online retailers reveal Destro today with the surprise launch of a pre-order for this figure, long rumored to be a part of the first wave of G.I. Joe: Classified six inch figures. He appeares to be available at several of them right now, most notably Big Bad Toy Store and In Demand Toys (which is based in the UK).

EDIT – He is also now available for pre-order on Hasbro Pulse!

Drool over the mighty images below, but be sure to hit that pre-order link, these things are a hot ticket!

Amazing Prime One Studio Destro statue now available for pre-order

There isn’t a whole lot of new G.I. Joe product to captivate fans these days, but high end statue maker Prime One Studios has some pretty fantastic looking items coming out, including an amazing statue of Destro, the enemy weapons supplier.

These pieces aren’t cheap, but they’d make for a great conversation piece, and Destro is now available for Pre-Order at Sideshow Collectibles.  Check out some of the images below.

Amazing images of upcoming Prime One G.I. Joe statues from Tokyo Winter Wonder

There hasn’t been much in the way of G.I. Joe news this weekend at Toy Fair, but statue company Prime 1 has stepped up to the plate in a HUGE way over at the Tokyo Winter Wonder Festival previewing some fantastic looking G.I. Joe statues including Serpentor and Destro!

These are not inexpensive endeavors, but they look spectacular.  Big thanks to Skinny on Twitter for the heads up, and Statue Review on Instagram for some of these images.

They’ve previous revealed both a Snake Eyes and a Storm Shadow statue, so things are looking pretty great for G.I. Joe statuary fans and collectors!
