G.I. Joe Classified Wave 3 And 4 Line-Up Revealed?!?

by Jay Cochran
August 30, 2020
A site named Actionfiguresindustries.com has put up for pre-order new 6" GIJoe Classified figures, and while we've never heard of this site before we have seen similar listings from other sources that make us think these are fairly legit.

They list movie versions of Snake-Eyes and Storm Shadow along with Zartan, Cobra Trooper and Lady Jaye. All but Lady Jaye are figures we had previously heard rumblings about. We should also note that we don't think all these figures are slated for the same wave.

I also wouldn't be surprised if these change as the Snake-Eyes movie looks like has been delayed until October 2021, so seeing a movie Snake-Eyes and Storm Shadow released in early 2021 seems unlikely to me.

We also have no idea how the Cobra Trooper will differ from the Target exclusive one. We assume there will at least be some minor changes.

While I think most if not all these figures will see the light of day, until Hasbro officially confirms them and exactly how they will be released, I would definitely recommend you treat these as rumor for now.

Recent youtube reports that Hasbro may be discontinuing its GI JOE exclusive with Target. Its not totally confirmed yet, and we dont know exactly what that will mean if it is confirmed, but my hope is Hasbro will immediately distribute it to all outlets, BBTS, Amazon, local dept stores that usually carry these action figures, etc. If they were to do this not only would we all have a better shot to get the figures we want, its gonna be a big blow to the scalpers. All the figures they bought up, planning to re-sell at 2-3x the actual fair price,  they'd then just be stuck with. I'd love to see them get clobbered for a change.

Like I've been saying: this is Hasbro's product, their brand, and they need to step up to fix the problems here. Hopefully.....theyre listening.

Havent you posted this multiple times? This doesnt mean anything which I thought I explained in one of the other threads you posted this in. No Hasbro isn't discontinuing doing Target exclusives. Yes the 1 Target wave is likely done. It was a limited wave and they have shipped whatever amount Target ordered for them out. So whatever is still in the distribution pipeline for these is it. Will the figures from that wave be reissued in some way at some point? Probably. We already know another Cobra Trooper is coming in wave 3 or 4. Back when the wave first came out the Target employees told me the wave was a one and done, so frankly that they are still showing up at all in stores is amazing to me, but this doesnt mean the took the wave away from Target and will start offering it everywhere.

As long as I get Zartan I'll be happy.

Me too.  I hope he's going to be as awesome as I think he is!!!  I might have to pre-order him so I don't have to hunt him down, even though that takes some of the fun out of it. haha

I got a notice today from BBTS that my Pimp Daddy Destro has come in, now I am just waiting on wave 2 to arrive.

Oh whoa Pimp Daddy D, is already shipping? ha I'm still trying to get myself the original one

but hey looks like it's just that we all got to be patient and play the long game with these figures

I saw people already with the Arctic Storm Shadow... I think inless they handle this line like Power Rangers, by the beginning of next year we will have our Joes it will just take time to saturate, but hey we are greedy impatient collectors, and it doesn't help these reviewes and scalpers are showing off the things we don't have yet

The Cobra Trooper reissue is good news. I'm a little bit curious about the movie designs.

Hasbro is selling their product thru these different outlets as exclusives; they underproduce so that only a few actually ever get out and all it does is feed the scalpers. Their public advertising info and campaign dates don't match what the outlets say, they have a release date but the figures aren't even in the stores. You cant get them online, you cant get them in the franchise store they're supposedly exclusive to.  This is how they handled Red Hulk for Marvel. Baroness apparently couldn't be found because she was never released at the time she was supposed to be, and now some outlets are getting her, at just 3 a case. Thats insane. And lest we forget, we all still have to deal with covid- we should be avoiding crowds, not running into them by chasing all over town for a product that isn't even there. These aren't Target's toyline, they're Hasbro and hasbro has some responsibility here. If as you say they're happy on their end knowing the collectors here are unable to get the product, then they don't deserve our business.

There's another pandemic in this country. Its called I Got Mine & The Rest of You Can Eff Yourselves. Its a poor attitude, and ultimately a poor business model. 

no theyre not. hasbro is selling their products to target, not through them. target pays them for an exclusive wave and then makes an order based on what will turn them a profit. if all figures they ordered have sold out than all parties are happy. and target decides what target stores get products and how many cases go to each location. hasbro ships to targets main depot. the depot then ships to each regional depot, which then ships to individual stores. and yes this exclusive wave is targets toyline. no other stores can carry them.

as a collector it sucks sometimes not finding figs you want. but hasbro cant control when youre able to go to the store and what stores you can go to and they cant control what happens to their products after they sell them.

why? on their end theyre extremely happy. its not hasbro's fault that the stores that sell their products are incompetent. this line is a hit, they were worried it wouldnt be. its gi joe in a brand new scale, everytime theyve tried to make joe figs that werent 3 3/4" or 12" it has failed miserably. target and walmart screwed up, not hasbro.

I hope we get more and different Cobra Troopers. As far as Joes, I would like Stalker, Recondo, Dusty and Snow Job w' Polar Battle Bear.
