Hasbro Finally Officially Reveals G.I. Joe Classified Major Bludd But Says Wait Until June For Details

Hasbro today finally officially acknowledged the upcoming G.I. Joe Classified Major Bludd 6" figure which we first saw hit eBay a few weeks ago, They however did not reveal any other details other than this one image and told folks to wait until June for details like a release date.



Hasbro is trying to make June a big promotional month for G.I. Joe. They have dubbed it G.I. Joe June where they will be doing a live-stream and supposedly revealing new products. The problem with waiting until June for Bludd however is Target stores are showing in their systems that they are going to be getting the figure in store on or around May 19. The figure is a Cobra Island Target exclusive. Now some are hoping Hasbro will also release these on their Pulse website. We saw two weeks ago when they put the Cobra Island Firefly and Cobra Viper figures on the Pulse website, they both sold out in like 3 minutes. That was only making it available to just their premium members (Those willing to pay a $50 membership price) and supposedly 1 per-person.

So now we have a situation where it looks like Target stores will start getting the Bludd figures in their stockrooms any day now, but Hasbro is unwilling to give specific details about it until June. Even if Hasbro makes the official release date for the figure sometime in June, as we have seen in the past that never seems to hold once the figures arrive at these stores. Call me crazy but that sounds like a perfect receipt for more frustration in a long trend of frustrations with this line for the consumer.

The DCPI# for Bludd is 087-16-9916

Well it's been reported that Major Bludd, Viper & Firefly are all now in Canada at TRU, too bad they don't put these on the website, and we are in Lockdown in my Province, looks like I'll never see them hahahah.

if you live in Canada and maybe some place like Manitoba (are you guys in Lockdown), go now to a TRU see if you can get lucky, if you do grab me a figure!

I did indeed.

A bit off topic but zartan is on Amazon for $20 if anyone is still looking for him

Hopefully target restocks the baroness. She is the only one that I am looking for

I got my Major Bludd today with a lot of help.I went to two Targets this morning and both had one full case of the Zartan/Cobra Trooper assortment on the pegs. At both Targets I tried entering Bludd's numbers into the self-serve scanner, and both said "None in back". I figured he hadn't hit my area yet and moved on.Later in the day I saw someone post on FB that he got two from the exact same Target I was just at a few hours before. He said he asked an employee to check and he got it out of the back. He later went to the other Target I had gone to this morning, didi the same thing, and got Bludd out of the back there as well. He hooked me up with one for myself and one for my brother in law.Now I don't know if self-serve scanners are saying one thing and the employee hand helds are saying another, but it looks like finding an actual employee and asking them to get it from the back is the way to go. From the looks of things the self scanners lied to me at two different stores. I later saw a few other FB posts of people in my area finding them after they asked to get it from the back. So I guess my advice is find an employee and ask them to check. BE NICE.

 

......and I'm not sure why my post has those weird highlights.

If you wrote this on The Fwoosh first and then copied and pasted it here that's sort of the cause. I don't know the exact cause, but I remember this happening to me earlier in the year.

Thats an interesting take, and may be true in your local area, but certainly not one that holds true across the US. I travel constantly for work and wind up checking out stores across the country and theres no discernible difference between the availability of MCU figures vs Comic figures. 

Maybe you should look again? I've been collecting far longer than I care to admit, and do a lot of traveling myself. All I can tell you is what I've gleaned over the years. Toy companies, not JUST Hasbro, put a bigger push behind waves with a movie or other main-stream media tie-in. That's Marketing 101.

Bringing it back to G.I. Joe, I've been to 5 different Walmarts. and two of three Targets in my area over the last week. After not seeing Jack forever, suddenly every one of them had G.I. Joe Classified figures on the pegs (not many, but they were there). That includes a couple of highly sought after figures Lady Jaye and Zartan. You think it's a coincidence that a brand-new G.I. Joe movie is preparing for release soon?

I was able to get major Bludd at my nearby target today and I noticed they had a couple of zartans and the  re issued Scarlett and road block maybe things will get better for the gijoe line

Even that isn't great. Sure, there are always peg-warmers, but the current Shang-Chi wave is the first time in quite a while I've been able to consistently find a Marvel line. Of course, that's only because it's pushing a movie. Once the next non-movie wave hits, forget it.

Collector: Excuse me, do you have any exclusive Major Bludds in stock?

Target Employee:  In stock?  Nope.

Collector: Do you know if it will be coming in soon?

Target Employee: Coming in soon?  Nope.  But if you really want one... Check my eBay account.
