G.I. Joe Classified 6" B.A.T. In Hand Images. It And The Alley Viper Shipping From Walmart For A Few

by Jay Cochran
October 31, 2021
Thanks to ASH we have our first in-hand look at the G.I. Joe Classified B.A.T. figure from Hasbro, the regular release version that was shown off by Hasbro last weekend at Pulse-Con, and get this he got it from Walmart.

Thats right Walmart apparently slipped these up this past Friday putting both the G.I. Joe Classified Alley Viper and the B.A.T. figures on their website using codenames. They were only available for a very short time. Ash took a stab in the dark and ordered the one for the B.A.T.. He missed the Alley Viper. He didn't even know what he was ordering, he thought it was gonna end up being a Movie Snake-Eyes figure or something.



The figures he ordered on Friday already arrived which you can see below. Check back soon because he said he is going to be opening and will take some out of the package images for us.

Now the bigger question is, does that mean these two figures will be seeing a release much sooner than next summer? Hasbro during the Pulse-Con had mentioned something about the B.A.T. being delayed due to all the shipping problems going on in the world and I would assume the same goes for the Alley Viper. It's possible Walmart had gotten a limited supply in stock and jumped the gun opening the orders up for them. Hasbro has not yet officially opened solicitations for these two figures which is why you don't see pre-orders at most online etailers for these two yet. Hasbro may have pushed the official release date on these two knowing most of the stock for them was stuck out in the ocean some place. If so, we will likely see these two figure slowly drip out here and there, but REMEMBER these aren't store exclusives and eventually they will be widely available. In other words if you start seeing them pop up on eBay I wouldn't recommend spending tons of money to get them unless you are just that set on being the first to have them.

I preordered from Dorkside and I kinda hope they stick to the June Schedule. While I would love to have them early, the sheer amount of toys I have preordered combined with all the "Release Date April 2022 or Next week, who knows" crap is playing havoc with my credit cards and budget.

Places seem to be getting partial shipments here and there so they are getting released sporadically. Gamestop shipped some out to folks last week, but not everyone. BBTS may be the same. Dorkside and or EE may get some in soon as well. My guess most people who pre-ordered now will get them before June, but its likely going to be staggered over a couple of months.

The BATS I pre-ordered from BBTS have shipped and should be here before Christmas.

Last night we told you how sponsor EntertainmentEarth had opened up pre-orders for the new G.I. Joe Classified Alley Viper And B.A.T. figures from Hasbro. They currently have these listed with a July 2022 release date.Our other sponsor BigBadToyStore has now also opened pre-orders for the these two figures and they list them with a June 2022 release date.

Target.com has also listed the B.A.T. and Alley Viper figures on their website but don't yet have them available for pre-order or purchase.You may recall early last month Walmart listed both the Alley Viper and B.A.T. figures on their website under codenames, and actually shipped a limited number of them out to folks who were lucky enough to order them blind. The listings are still there and are still using the codenames. They are not available for any kind of purchase or pre-order.On top of Walmart releasing a small number of them last month, both these figures have already started to see release overseas which is why you see more and more people have them in-hand on social media.While places like BBTS and EntertainmentEarth are listing the figures with Summer 2022 release dates, I wouldn't be surprised if they started to get limited supply in before that. Same with places like Walmart and Target.From what I understand the problem is only some of the figures have or will be arriving here soon in the US while many of them remain stuck out at sea someplace. So this likely means for the immediate future we will only see these figures trickle out on to shelves here and there in limited numbers. Eventually though they should be pretty widely available once the main shipments arrive in the US.So the moral of the story here is, if you are patient, you will eventually be able to get as many of these figures as you want easily without having to pay high secondary market prices. The bad news is you will likely have to wait a little longer, which means you will have to watch those who get lucky or were willing to pay more to get them in hand now post pictures of them on social media without having them yourself.

I'm glad that Hasbro is allowing other online pre-orders for the G.I. Joe Classified series. This really helps out G.I. Joe fans, who don't want to deal with retail toy hunting. And avoids frustration with Target workers and store managers.

You can pre-order them now. Keep in mind they will likely start showing up places sporadically, well any day now, and while EE has them with a July release my guess is they will at least get some in sooner. As I understand it those who ordered mix cases will start getting them in sooner than those who just ordered solid cases. Eventually these will be very easy to get in as many numbers as you want, so anyone paying more than regular retail either has money to burn or not to bright.

I was wondering on how you order a solid case JayC... I was adding to my cart 2 of each but not sure how I add the solid case that you mentioned a long time ago... If you please be so kind to explain!?
