Between the Covid-19 pandemic and the demise of Toys R Us in America, it must not have been easy for Hasbro to launch its G.I. Joe Classified line. From big retailers not carrying any stock to fans complaining about not being to get any of their favorite action figures, they must be struggling to find solutions.
The supply chain is a major issue here and as a customer, until this is fixed, I do not have faith, the line will survive or find the success both Hasbro and G.I. Joe fans wished it has.
It’s very difficult to find action figures already released and for the few available, there’s no way of knowing knowing if a figure is part of the original line or the re-painted refresh, finding exclusive on the retail market is impossible while eBay and influencers are taunting fans; and when it comes to pre-orders release dates not being respected and orders being cancelled by retailers are way too common.
