Delivering Great Action Figures Of Fan Favorites
A lot of us have fond memories of the classic 80s and 90s 3 and 3/4-inch action figures; Hasbro has done a great of bringing some of the most iconic ones back. These are the ones everyone will want to own.
Cobra’s android is definitely one everyone as a kid had in their collection; keeping the swappable appendages made it what it is.
The flashy Alley Viper is one of those that cannot be mistaken; its visor, shield, and color scheme define its singular look.
Bringing The Pet Companions Of The Most Beloved Characters
One of my favorite things as a kid was getting the action figures that had pet companions; dogs, lynxes, birds, stingrays, even crocodiles, and of course snakes; it’s good to see them here.
Snake Eyes & Timber V2
As much as I’m tired of Snake Eyes versions; this is the classified version of the greatest action figure ever.
Spirit Iron-Knife & Freedom
Freedom having articulations and coming with 2 sets of wings shows the care given to Spirit Iron-Knife’s companion.
Offering Army-Building Multipacks
A lot of collectors want to build little armies and having packs with several figures offering design variety is more than welcomed.
Viper Officer & Vipers
Everyone loves the Vipers and having a small squadron at a reasonable price with a lot of accessories is a good thing.
The blue ninjas, despite being a retailer exclusive, is a great set reusing existing molds to create a new, varied set of figures.
Packaging Small Vehicles With Figures
Vehicles were a big part of the appeal of GI Joes but it’s understandable that going from a 1:18 to a 1:12 scale has challenges and that only small vehicles can be produced at an affordable cost.
Baroness with C.O.I.L.
Extremely difficult to find when it came out, Hasbro has re-released this Cobra Island exclusive; it’s a fantastic set.
Serpentor with Air Chariot
If releasing Serpentor as a PulseCon exclusive in extremely limited quantities is a mistake, including the air chariot is not.
Taking Risks When Modernizing Figures
I’m going to be a bit controversial here as I know most collectors would rather have some retro or contemporary military inspired figures with muted colors but, personally, I absolutely love the sci-fi aspect of GI Joe and admire when the Hasbro team takes risks modernizing figures.
Some might prefer the repainted variant with muted colors but I love this cartoony figure with its saturated colors.
I hate the classic character but I do love this Snake Plissken-inspired version of Major Bludd with a robotic arm.
BONUS: Coming Up With Some Of The Coolest Repaints
If the classified line is getting way too many repaints these days and not enough new figures; a few of these variants are really interesting and I wished we had more of these which makes these figures feel like new characters as opposed to the same old figures with a lazy paint job which ends up feeling like a cheap way to gouge fans.
Tiger Force Outback
Tiger Force Outback looks weathered and has a completely different feel from the standard version.
Profit Director Destro
Someone told me this version looks like Destro’s evil or good Bitcoin maximalist twin; and I love how outrageous it is.
