Valaverse - Valafair Day 3: Action Force Reveals

March 06, 2023
Our sponsor Valaverse made some awesome reveals for Day 3 of Valafair. The livestream started with news on the next JoeFest Exclusive which was a 3.75" 5 point of Articulation Desert Rat Figure created in collaboration with Stan Solo. There will be 1500 Carded and 1500 Loose figures available for purchase during the show at the Valaverse Table.

They then moved onto some some 2024 reveals which showcased some new body styles that are coming in Series 4 & 5 of Action Force! We then saw the bodies for Buddha, Sidewinder and Atlas along with a brand new character coming to Action Force called Colonel Siege.

The stream then moved on to an update about the Vanguard. It's at the factory and sometimes soon Booby should have a 3d print of the vehicle. At that point he will let folks know what it costs. The Vanguard can fit up to FIVE 6" figures inside and One 6" figure manning the gun turret. After a brief video showing an Action Points exclusive character that is coming, they treated folks to another awesome reveal.... A new character announced for the line called Crimson Shadow: Praetorian for Series 4. Look for it to be released in 2024!

Forgot to add, in regards to guns, I'm not a gun guy, so I'm not the right guy to say which is better or not. To me, regardless if realistic or not, so long as they look good and cool to me, I'm alright with the gun accessories. I never had any of the Joe toys when I was kid, nor read any of the comics. I more grew up with the Sunbow and DIC(To some extent) cartoon series, where lasers were replaced with bullets. So I was always okay with G.I. Joe having guns that were a bit more on the sci-fi side, even if it wasn't realistic.

His decision to not have the figures look very real world military has always struck me as so bizarre. I bought some Delta troopers and other generics from the first wave or two, but they just look like paintballers instead of soldiers. I ended up selling all of them but three green Deltas and, honestly, Classified Grunt with his helmet is a better army builder.

I think Vala missed a real chance to complement Classified rather than seemingly compete with it making unique faux Joes and punk-like characters.

I wasn't all that impressed with the Vanguard vehicle (they should have had a black option), and would have preferred the female wave look more like their comic book likenesses (especially Eclipse), otherwise they were a solid entry into the line. Absolutely love the SWARM troopers (SCARABS too). Fave fig would be the Infantry Commando (Dorkside exclusive figure before they went bankrupt). Massively disappointed with their Arctic trooper....it just doesn't say "arctic" to me, not the way Classified's Snow Job or Snow Serpents do.

Saying that, I'm not sure why Vala missed anything in not complementing Classified's line. They've got his company, he's got his.

He missed the chance to sell more figures and guns (his guns are too weirdly scaled to work with most Classified figures). There are far more Classified collectors than Action Force collectors. If he had made his generic bucks look more like U.S., Russian, European, or whatever real world soldiers they would have sold much better than the paint ball weekend warrior outfit he went with.

If he wants to make faux-Joes that's his business. But making sure his line is as niche as possible was a missed opportunity to gain more support. When he pitched Action Force, he thought he was going to be the only 1:12 line of sort-of Joe figures going. Once Classified came along, he should have pivoted to make things that would supplement people's Classified collections, particularly since Classified was in market way ahead of the first Valaverse stuff.

I can probably point you guys to at least 1 or 2 Youtubers who would state otherwise how Valerverse does have some characters and gear that are more realistic or military accurate in details and such, when compared to Classified, in which they feel that the Classified Guns look more like NERF Guns. As well, how Valerverse's version of the Steel Brigade is better than Hasbro's Steel Corps figures.

Mind you, these Youtubers are, well, let's just say very close to Bobby, which can include some of them volunteering to help him at some conventions last year and such, appearing with him in some Youtube Podcasts, as some have even claimed to be good friends with him. As some of you might have guess: They have no problems kissing up to Bobby, but have issues with people kissing up to Hasbro.

Never bought anything from Valerverse yet myself, but I would probably get a few items if his line does show up in retail down the road to compliment my small Classified collection as well as my 6" stuff in general. And in regards to Steel Brigade and Steel Corps, honestly, I'd get both and use them as different characters in the Steel Brigade/Corps branch of G.I. Joe, as each will have their purposes, abilities, and such, making them look like they belong in the same team, but still unique in their own way.

Ive been pretty unimpressed with the Valaverse stuff- design-wise, most of it is bland, and pretty redundant. The heroes are extremely generic, and the non-Swarm villains look like random cannon-fodder Dreadnoks. The jeep-like vehicle looks extremely boring. Quality-wise, the first figure I bought, the leg broke off almost instantly. The weapons assortments are cool and fairly priced, but the fact that Vala is a cocky jerk makes me less likely to buy all but the occasional item from his company. Fresh Monkeys upcoming 6 inch stuff looks to be much more interesting.

Some Action Force weapons actually scale quite well with Classified figures. Most, however, don't. The issue is that the guns don't scale well with each other. Bobby Vala's never been good about scale consistency.
