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

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!

GeneralsJoes Reviews Sideshow Collectibles 12″ Destro

Unlike many other G.I. Joe fans out there, I was drawn to this 12″ Destro the first minute I saw it.  The great modern touches and terrific vintage throwbacks seemed to create the perfect combination for this Sideshow update.  Granted, it was nowhere near 100% vintage accurate, but I’m one of those folks who doesn’t need that sort of stuff to enjoy a figure.

All in all, as much as I was looking forward to the figure, the end result matched every single expectation I had.
