I get that GIJoe is not as easily marketable as Disney's latest movie, but can't Hasbro really make some legit Classified vehicle for under 100 bucks? Jazwares also put some badass mech for their 1/18 Halo line for a nice price.

It doesn't have to be incredibly high-end, and if the vehicle is cool enough they could sell it without driver to save costs too.

Consider what >>9861946 noted, if they are not careful this line is going to implode in on itself like a dying star. We have a total of 51 listed items with 30 of them being Classified. To give context the most Marvel Legends has had has been under 25 items at any one time. This is not counting the BAT/AV wave nor the Spirit/SS/Officer wave either which many still have never found nor seen. Compound this with a coming rescission and we should sooner hope they just stop announcing new stuff as their is serious risk some of these items just might not get made at all.

It'd be a nice option, Roadblock eventually got his. And they took inspiration from the original toys instead of the cartoon or comic for Tomax and Xamot, why not do the same for Duke
>>
Marketing bit before the movie showing dropped that there would be around 100 classified figures released by the end of 2023. If plans haven't changed, that means there are around 30 figures they haven't even teased yet, even if a bunch of them are going to be repaints.

There's no need to give hasbro any more reasons to cheap out on accessories anyway. If we're being anal with our semantics, Tiger Force Duke isn't in the cartoon or comic in any meaningful way to my knowledge, so who cares?

>>
>>9865845
It'd be a waste on Hasbro's part not to do one when they already went thru the trouble of tooling the gun, and they've already made lazier Retro repaints. They'd probably give him his helmet in that release as well. I'd be curious if they swap out or change any other parts, such as giving him bare hands.

They should time him to drop at the same time as a Retro Cobra Commander.
>>
>>9865876
I really hope the retro cobra commander comes with a reuse of the snake supreme cape and the gold staff. Just watched the movie tonight so I’m really hoping to get that, and a bunch of Cobra La characters.

Actually it looks like that hip ball is smashed. The front of it looks pressed in and more flat than normal so it might not be the right shape to properly hold the leg in that socket.

I think they started doing them that way on purpose, so the legs have a little more room inside the cup and they don’t strain the peg as much.

Technically no, but I got to watch some of it as I can only assume they started it late as when we went to get seats for Top Gun early it was still playing in the theater. Didn't get to finish however as it switch over to that preview program they run before a film started and I'm sure the 4 or so people that left were pissed both at it ending early and how shitty the quality was (they were playing the film at 4:3 ratio at low quality).

Also I'm assuming most across the country didn't attend in general. There is next to no new media doing well in the market and the animated Joe movie was panned badly back then and to my knowledge never warm up to the fans like the Transformers film did. iirc The Joe movie wasn't even in theaters back in the day due to how bad Transformers so it's just this strange market stunt that was doomed to fail. Would have been in their better interest to just take the opening of the film and then play some of the best episodes of the TV show, would have been a better call.

Resolute Storm Shadow is a jealous little bitch. You're welcome to enjoy Resolute, and even that SS. But keep in mind that it's probably the worst/most different version of Stormy as well as his history with Snake-Eyes

Besides SE origins, I don't know the details and I don't plan on ever seeing it.
>>
Apparently a lot of retail stores are starting to get the Storm Shadow, Spirit, and Cobra Officer wave in stock. Pulse is also shipping them along with BBTS. Others are saying Amazon is charging and getting ready to ship theirs although I haven't seen any updates on my order there.
>>
>>9873421
Bbts only notified me of croc master but I placed the order the same day as they went up for po, so it may be a staggered roll out? I saw some site had storm shadow reviewed so I'm stoked and ok not getting mine first.

>>9873050
They were dead before this happen. We got something like 8~10 years of those figures and designs and with no new show or successful movie all that's left to exploit in the market atm is retro

Found the wave at Walmart today. Grabbed Spirit and Tommy, skipped on the officer and canceled my bbts preorder. Word of warning, heat up Spirit's hips. His left was too tight and, even in near 80 degree weather today trying to use his leg out of the box stressed his hip peg.

I know, it's been a shit show since day one with little improvement but I'm personally still trying to be hopeful. But killing the ME retro line after basically releasing no figures then flooding shelves with troopers and stalkers and releasing the hiss tank TWICE, and then re releasing all the cobra island figures EXCEPT major bludd just leaves me frustrated and confused as to wtf is going on. We used to daydream about hopes for future figures and now we just wait for 2023. This is exactly why I so rarely open my classified figures, it hasn't been fun and I've got a real bad taste in my mouth over it all.

The CLAW would be a well-known mini-vehicle that would be easy to do for the Classified line, too.

So what would justify the $300 price point for everyone? I think I'll need 5-6 figures included.
>>
>>9875138
to be fair they were in their mid to late 40s when the photo was taken back in 2012 for the 30th anniversary of the brand. Most of those guys are dads with kids, some now have grand kids.
>>
>>9875170
And sadly, probably none of those kids or grandkids like GI Joe. In a few years you'll see /toy/ posts and reddit posts with pristine collections full of army building going "Anyone know what these are? My grandpa just died and we're clearing his house."
>>
>>9875158
Full functionality would be a big thing, working treads, the back compartment opening up, control panels with working joysticks in the drivers seat, etc. The Driver is the only other big thing however I wager the backer goals will be effect parts like laser blasts, explosions, dust up effects and what not, maybe even a diorama to put it on. I could see them cheap out and make one goal be a cobra mechanic that's just a mix of Duke and Cobra Trooper parts with tool box and wrench accessories. Only other thing I see them pulling is decals to make it a Joe vehicle mirroring the stunt they did with the SkyStriker.
>>
>>9875158
Working treads, motorized raising cockpit, lights, multiple armament options, and several figures. I will not accept anything less considering other toy lines are capable of making vehicles that fit up to 7" figures and don't cost nearly this much.
>>
>>9875180

You'll only get those extra figures if they hit 5 to 6 stretch goals though, probably.
Whatever. Thankfully I don't much care for the HISS.

Thanks, I could only find the pic that I guess you've all seen already. Scrap iron is exciting, he was one of my first Joe's that I got to pick out at Sears so that's fun for me at least.
>>
>>9875488
I would be so salty if I had to not only get the 300 dollar hiss tank to get Serpentor, but also hope enough other people got it as well..
>>
>>9875529
It's probably just gonna be a troop builder, maybe a classic style trooper, the Sentinel Haslab only came with troop builders didn't it?
>>
>>9875555
Yeah, but the Rancor needed like 100k to get the version of Luke Skywalker that I actually want. And I think Galactus comes with unique characters, too.
>>
>>9875560
Well to be fair, those are ones more inclined to only have one ordered, unlike the Sentinel
>>
>>9875565
Good point. I kinda forgot that the HISS is an army builder.
Anyway, at least it's not the fucking AWE Striker again. Anyone know why that piece of shit has been getting such a push lately between the "retro" wave release, the model kit, and Bumblebee?
>>
>>9875583
I have to assume it's just laziness. Though it could also be some embarrassing copyright thing, or any number of reasons why Hasbro does the things they do.

Shot in the dark but I assume it's just a cost thing. It's a thin framed buggy with a gun on top, For a Model kit there wouldn't be much to the runners and for a Transformer you are just shape changing a brick with wheels. For better or worse the Joe brand has never had one outstanding vehicle for the Joe's that sticks in everyone's mind like HISS tank. Hot take but I'd argue the Trouble Bubble is more in the minds of geek culture than the Flagg, MOBAT, or VAMP.

Meh, it's cool but I'm not going to throw in. As much as I want vehicles for Classified, I don't want to support more rehashing of 80's stuff.

HiSS tank is neat. Maybe I'll back it, since while I have shit for Classified figures, it's still six inch scale and a lot of other figures could enjoy it.
>>
>>9877096
>The Big MF and Big AT-AT
Those were both sculpted at a time when Star Wars was popular and before the toy industry changed. Toys like that can't be made today, because we no longer pay slave wages in China.
>>
>>9877036
Shit was doomed to fail, Star Wars survives solely on nostalgia and no one gives a shit about new characters. Disney must be shitting themselves at this point trying to figure out what they can do with the brand once all these geriatric actors are dead in a few more years.

>>
>>9877168
I remember during the Unicron Haslabs they said they would actually lower the price if enough people backed it, but then they ended up extending the deadline just to get the minimum backers
If they said something like "We'll shave off $100 if it gets triple funded" I wonder what would happen
>>
>>9875555
>the Sentinel Haslab only came with troop builders didn't it?
No, it came with the only Marvel Legends figure of Bastion to date, a fairly important 90s villain, and an alternate generic Prime Sentinel troop head, along with a generic female Prime Sentinel.
>>
>>9877066
The BS was never meant to be a vehicle line. Don't know why they bothered with it. Speeder bikes at best is what they'll be able to sell, but BS is just to put more details on the figures compared to the 1/18th. Hasbro SW is full of unqualified non-fans trying to spew out shit tier garbage to please Disney and their woke head of SW division.
>>
>>9877209
So he could become a troop builder if you used the alternative head
>>
>Classic Hiss
Meh, good for people who want classic designs, but easy pass. Call me when they do a Classified Hiss 6.

Not the same anon, but would alternate parts to make a HISS 2 work as a possible upgrade?

>>9877047
>I'm pretty sure one of them will be something for the tank to tow.
The ASP?
>>
>>9877219
That was certainly part of the incentive to buy more than one Sentinel, though I imagine most people who only bought one are using the figure as Bastion, not as a generic.
>>
>>9877044
Hasbro can afford to sell this thing for $100 if they wanted to.
>>
the tank looks really cool, but it highlights how bad an idea the 1/12 scale is if a small vehicle is $300, then a skystriker must be $1000, oh well at least it's not too tone deaf this time

Did they have a livestream revealing any more figures, or is it just the HISS tank today?

>with lots of disposable income
Not in this economy and having done basically pre-orders almost every week this month on top of finally charging/shipping stuff from last Oct which included a troop builder. This was a terrible plan.
>>
I've never contributed to any of the haslabs, but just to be sure; They don't charge you until the campaign is over, right? Do they put a hold on the card? I see you can pay with paypal, but is that an option you'd have to pay immediately, or would you still be able to wait until after the campaign?
>>
>>9877287
Just wait for BBTS to put it up for preorder, it'll be a lot cheaper especially with that $4 shipping.
>>
>>9877287
It's like kickstarter, they won't charge till it's over, PayPal is also an option but no pay in 4

>>9877731
I mean the techno-viper is a bit more neon purple, where as I like to more subdued purple and black.

Plus why can't we have multiple troops with the same color?
>>
On one hand, if it gets backed in a single day then that's fantastic and tells Hasbro that vehicles for this line are in demand and can be supported. On the other, I fear that it may mean anything bigger than a motorcycle is going to wind up being HasLab only projects and that kind of sucks because they could offer these at retail/fan channel sites. At least stripped down versions without electronics.

Anyways, just got Storm Shadow in from Amazon even though they said he was supposed to be here Saturday and my Officer is supposed to come tomorrow. I'd be lying if I say I wasn't digging this figure. I do wish there was more to it from that original Classified design we saw but this is still a solid toy and I'm glad I can finally surrender the Ninja Force version to the Joe team shelf.

they were just shown if they put a threat that they won't add something to item if it doesn't reach it's minimum people will comply. Hasbro didn't start hard goal stretches until they saw how well Sentinel did with it, The Barge, Unicron and Cookie monster had no set stretch goals but now they all get them thanks to that robot showing it works. Going forward every new haslab will place a 24 hour threat of not making something now. That is what will come from this.

>>9877879
It'll become common to employ a first day item. It didn't really cost them anything to do the Hiss Tactician, being that it's just a repaint.
>>
What are the odds one of the stretch goals will be swap out cockpit seats and swap out bucket seat for the back to accommodate 1:18 joes? The way that skull head tie fighter Kickstarter had both? I'm not a 1/12 guy but think all the details and lights are fantastic and would gladly jump in for some cross compatibility.

Neat, that was something Lenny hinted at in the video, while pointing out the covers on the side of the tank.

Apparently the first tier unlocks at 10,000, so we'll have these by the end of the night. They may as well show off tier 2 already.

I wouldn’t get my hopes up I still feel like there is going to be an effects tier, that computer display looks like it had a swappable plate mechanism to change the display
>>9878067
I agree missiles and some effects feel like they should’ve been a part of the base hiss
A tow hitch item seems like it could be a good stretch goal, and I’m hoping for another figure desu

Is the classifed line as good as everyone has been saying? I only have a slight connection to GI Joe. But there is some nostalgia, not from certain figs, but just from playing with soldiers.

The Hiss tank Haslab has intrigued me. Anyone mind posting their collection? Curious how this line displays as a whole instead of individual figs.
>>
>>9878090
They're pretty shit, better to not start because it's difficult to get any of it not just the exclusives
>>
>>9878090
Extremely high quality compared to other retail 1:12 toylines. Supplies never meet demands though, and you can often run into other Joe collectors trying to find the figures if it's ever announced that they've been spotted at retail.
>>
>>9878105
>>9878109
Damn... kind of a shame. Not really looking to get into any line that is scalped more than the others already are. I figured the scalping is about to go up with they hype from the haslab too.

I don't have the room for a Joe display anyway, especially with Galactus coming soon. Just saw the Hiss tanks and love how the Cobra troopers look. I will stick to my already hard to find toys and not throw money away.
>>
>>9878112
The toyline is pretty much online exclusive. You can get them, but everything's on fucking pre-order.
>>
>>9878090
I think I may have been in a similar position as you maybe even liked Joe less (as a kid I found human characters boring I was into stuff like TMNT, street sharks, Jurassic Park weird stuff you know)
I had a few Joe's and felt they were insubstantial, flimsy little guys that were more like an accessory to a vehicle than a character to me

But I heard the buzz about classified too and kept telling myself "they look cool but they're hard to get" "Hasbro sucks though" "I will never get a regular cobra trooper what's the point"
Then target had their CI reissue last year and that's when I decided id give it a try (got cobra trooper and viper as my first ones) and it's now something that I keep buying
Here are all my cobra grunts

Classified toys range from "another Hasbro 1/12 toy" to legitimately good both as a toy and as an aesthetic upgrade of the original figure
Guess which ones are scalped

Just want to say again how bummed I am they stopped doing updated and revised versions of characters and now are only doing 6 inch versions of the original looks.

I feel the same. Although that Cover Girl they showed off is looking good to me.

Gotta unlock that top HISS tier to get figures of "Games Master" bikini Baroness and "Skeletons in the Closet" lingerie Lady Jaye!
>>
this would cost almost half a unicron unit did in my country
how can that be possible for the size and amount of plastic/design for a single HISS (plus pilot)?
>>
>>9878054
I like it. I don't want to be Mr no-fun-allowed for a cartoonish toy design, but the Hiss tank as a tank was a bit too dumb for my taste; now it can be a mobile multiple rocket launcher vehicle with an additional anti-air turret which may not be the most realistic thing ever but at least it's not a tank with a glass cockpit.
>>
>>9878271
Same. I sold all of mine, minus a couple Snake Eyes. Idk, just don’t have the same excitement for rehashed 80s designs, especially when my entire collection is all the new style stuff. I’m sure Hasbro will make a classic version of the characters from the start of the line. But idk, I’m just not interested in selling off all my figures just so they match the new ones with their “classic” looks.
>>
Alright, time to show of the next tier unlock, Cover Girl's Wolverine.
>>
Seems like the python patrol figures are back up for pre order at target, the bat and viper pre orders have been sold out everytime Ive checked so this may be a new batch. Target checks the accts you use for pre order so to avoid any cancellations just use one that always has that amount in it.
>>
Hasbro needs to reveal the next tier already. At the rate we're going, even if tier 2 is lame, like blast effects, it'll already be unlocked sometime today.
>>
>>9877713
Not into Classified, but won't they just color it as Rip-It? Hiss Tactician sounds like him.

Hasbro needs to find the balance, they went with an 'MCU hero' approach in that first wave which got a flat response, myself included. I'll give credit to Hasbro for trying to pivot but now the pendulum is too far in the other direction and they are just blowing up a lot of the original designs when I think a lot of collectors wanted the approach they took with Firefly & Beachead, take the basic look and as long as it still holds up & give it a patina of modern tacticool.

Granted what still 'holds up' is extremely subjective, especially between the cartoon vs. the comic fans, but for myself I would have preferred Mindbender in a labcoat and Tomax/Xamot in business suits, but for guys who want the classic versions? More power to ya.

I'm sold on the Hiss Tank, I wonder what other stuff we will be getting? I'm getting a feeling we are seeing the new Sentinel, we are quickly blasting past the stretch goals so far, and it's only day two.
>>
>>9879237
I'm more of an updated look guy myself as you referenced with firefly and beach head, some looks are so iconic and pitch perfect like duke, destro, commander etc that they deserve to be in the line. As long as the characters theme shines through I don't mind a new design, I bought sigma 6 back in the day, but I agree that they could at least attempt to mix in some new takes. Of course the die hard g1 people would scream heresy.

We’ll most likely get a HISS Gunner figure. The tank has three seats in it and the Tactician can go in the back seat so a Gunner seems like a shoe in. I’m also hoping we get a Salvo figure. Might as well give us an anti-tank expert Joe to go with this.

8k backers to gain an extra figure IF they funded in the first week. They made $2.4 MILLION DOLLARS just to add a single figure and funded this project.

>>9878075
10k people means they made an extra 2000 in extra sales already at $300 a pop. That's $600,000 for them to add a pair of missile racks.

>>9879667
At 12k backers (an additional 2k again) we get a god damn clear piece of plastic and some side panels. That's $600,000 to add basic plastic to a tank... They'll have made $3.6 MILLION DOLLARS in SALES to offer your literally the least they could do when it should come with the original $300 starting price.

The marvel side clearly seems to be the favorite ATM. Both Sentinel and Galactus had solid extras.

Probably just something more like the original figure, without the armor, but I don't know how many Firefly figures we're likely to get, and I'd like to see some alternate costumes like the 2nd Firefly, Destro and Storm Shadow figures, or the hooded Cobra Commander and blue and black early 90s Snake Eyes people keep asking for.

>>9879749
People already accepted the design for the Classified version as close enough to the vintage style Hiss, so giving it "retro" parts wasn't necessary. It's ok, I'll accept the parts, but it's not a thrilling item.

There's still three other areas we haven't seen anything for. There's some peg holes near the gun turret for something we haven't seen. We've also been told that the turret will be compatible with blast effects, and we've been told the tank will be able to tow something.

I know, with all the positive feedback and clear demand for this project, Hasbro will have no choice but to churn out more quality vehicles for the Classified line. Considering people were calling this a dead line before it even launched, for it to have released...and be releasing....so many figures and have such a run away success with it's first major vehicle is really encouraging as a fan of G.I. Joe. It's great to see Classified being such a popular line, especially when there was so much doubt about it before it even launched.
>>
>>9880059
I'm going to need to see an S.M.S. at the very least to consider backing. An ASP would actually go a long way to helping the price look better, but this is Hasbro and it's best to not get carried away.

>>9880102
They have to make something for the Tank to tow, unless they're banking on doing a tank first and then doing the ASP as a separate vehicle? Perhaps as a smaller retail/fan channel item?

I was going through some old shit I found in my parent's basement and there were a few old gijoe mail-in catalogues. Shit like this seems like a perfect fit for classified. Or those old Joe mini vehicles. I can't remember them perfectly but they were like towable gun emplacements and missile launchers. Shit they could sell for like $40 that would really round out the classified figures without having to make giant, 2 foot long vehicles.

The Joe team did not rule out that they wouldn't repurpose or re-tool the Hiss Tank mold in a recent interview. They said they just wouldn't re-issue this specific version of it again outside of the Haslab. So once we have a Hiss Tank tooled, Hasbro can repaint and retool it into other things that probably will still cost around $300 and be sold thru fan channels.

>What vehicle should be the next Haslab?
The problem is that the HISS is about a medium-sized vehicle, so making that a $300 Haslab project means anything larger is probably completely off the table, and we're maxed out at things the size of the Snowcat or Thunder Machine as future possibilities.
>>
>>9880748
Although I doubt it'll happen, I hope Classified can get a few of the crazier subline figures like these. I'd kill for an Eco Warriors Sludge Viper and Toxo Viper.

My off the beaten path figures have been psyche-out and Dee jay. I think a capt grid iron or hit and run or even a sneak peak would be more feasible though. It does seem like there are a few anons that would like a bit more imaginative or sci Fi type designs to go along with the standard classified figures. Air tight could slide right in with barbeque and alley viper, nice blend of fantasy and taticool.

50-50. Hasbro owns their own IP unlike the others so really this just shows demand to put out something bigger at retail or Fan Channel. TF HISS is Fan Channel. TF JP is Fan Channel. So strip out the electronics and some of the other stuff, there's a 50-50 chance.

Do you realise the outcry that would cause? People would be so pissed and that would cause future Haslabs to suffer because people should think "why back it now when I could just buy it later fit cheaper?"
>>
>>9881246
I think there is a high chance of them reusing this to release a hiss 3 and septic tank down the road in some fashion but yeah a straight up cheaper version will piss people off and is not a good precedent.
>>
>>9881022
The short of it is that people are generally pissed that items that should cost $150 in stores are instead marked up to $300 as a Kickstarter, because Hasbro has proved this is a viable model for them and they can skip the hassle of convincing Walmart to carry items like this.
In addition, the tiers are supposed to be extra stuff to justify the price a bit. But for most HasLabs, it’s usually stuff that should have been included in the first place. I think the Sentinel was largely the best, in that even if zero tiers had been unlocked, we still would’ve gotten a complete toy. Vs. Rancor and Galactus , where an arguably crucial figure (Rancor keeper and silver surfer, respectively) are locked behind tiers.
HISS Tank always included the driver thankfully, but stuff like tread covers and a cockpit hatch being tier unlocks feels a little stingy. But it is a vehicle so personally I’m not sure what else could have been the tiers. I guess more figures, but I have mixed feelings on that, since locking a figure people want behind a $300 Kickstarter is pretty lame. HasLabs as a whole are largely motivated by FOMO, another reason not to like them in general.
>>
>>9881269
To be fair there are multiple ML Silver Surfers so if we never unlocked him we'd still be able to get him.
Compare that to the Rancor Keeper would has no options.

Snow Serpents, and just about any and every Viper they're willing to do.
>>
>>9881319
There's nothing that says they can't re-release the mold outside of the Haslab. They did that with Yakface in the Sailbarge, since they were just giving you early access to a figure that wasn't out yet. They fucked up with the Rancor by packing it with figures that were already out. They could in theory allow the Hiss Driver to be army built at a later date, or re-release him as Rip It.

>>9881554
They were popular enough to single card during 25th

They said that are supposed to be strong and be able to fight if their tank ever breaks down, so they gave them some specialized gloves for hand to hand combat as a modern upgrade. It made me wonder if the hands might be re-used for other characters like Big Boa.
>>
>>9881713
Yes
They said that hiss drivers are good at fighting hand to hand, I believe their exact words were fisticuffs because apparently that's what the vintage driver bio said

I'd rather get this "almost" Techno Viper than the more likely scenario of us not getting a Techno Viper at all.

That's kinda cool, reminds me of the Ice Vipers and their sais

>>9881759
I think technoviper is a highly likely scenario at some point in the future
Thirsty gi Joe fans showed up only gave it 8 hours to show there was demand for a 300 dollar tank
Why do you think that it's unlikely we will get a technoviper? We got an alley viper so they are showing that the specialized types of viper is in the cards

One of these for me, I like the black as a baroness led team, and the red as more fitting with the HISS.

>>9881505
Wouldn't mind this as an officer under an eventual Rip It, but not as appealling as the others.

Also, the swap out parts and Mancake made me remember that when they do a Tele-Viper, he needs to come with swap out lenses for a message or two.

I suppose you're right. I had to look up when Techno Viper came out, and it turns out it released at least a year before the OG Alley Viper. I just think that over the years, Alley Viper has had dozens of different incarnations and repaints, whereas I feel like Techno Viper is pretty much associated with the one look. Alley Viper they could repaint countless times and would look like his various incarnations throughout the years.

It's fine, just box your way to what passes for Cobra's CSAR

We're getting closer to the next unlock. We should be there by the end of the day:

11,717 Backers

>>9881504 This one probably looks the best in the back of the tank under the red light. He'll get my vote.
>>9881498 If those boots and gauntlets were chromed like sky patrol, this would actually be a cool option too. They'd just be dull silvery/grey though I'm sure.
>>
>>9881502
This one has my vote.
>>
>>9881303
I own the original Walgreens one, but he was incredibly hard to find for a lot of people, and he came out four years ago. The more recent one is technically an obsidian surfer, so I’d understand if someone didn’t consider that a true substitute. It’s better than nothing but still.

>>9881403
I thought McFarlane was a privately owned company so he can do whatever he wants while Hasbro has investor cock to suck
>>
>>9882122
That's a very good point, I think Super7 and NECA are like that as well meaning they don't need to sweat the small stuff like Hasbro, Mattel and Playmates have too.

I wouldn't mind seeing them take another stab at this goofy repaint. Alongside/after the original of course.

Shocker

>>9882575
Are they going to confirm 33.99 as the new msrp for classified?
>>
>>9882835
Somebody should have asked. Some of them wasted their questions.
>>
>>9882352
And in Super7s case at least a lot of their stuff is made to order so something not sell well doesn't matter and doesn't risk killing a line
>>
>>9881502
>>9881504
It's these two for me. The bright red just popping against the black works, the others are too desaturated though Purple/Black comes close.
>>
>>9882012
The fallen? Yeah, he's my substitute, just got quasar to go with him. Not a huge ml guy but I loved the space comics during the X-Men 90s.

>There's nothing that says they can't re-release the mold outside of the Haslab. They did that with Yakface in the Sailbarge, since they were just giving you early access to a figure that wasn't out yet.
Hopefully Marvel legends eventually do the same with Morg, Nova and Bastion, and as you say, at the very least they can release repaint versions of HISS Driver like Rip It or the HISS Commander.
>>
>>9881863
Of all the post-1986 Cobra troops, Techno Viper, SAW Viper, Night Viper and HEAT Viper feel like the ones most likely to follow Alley Viper and get Classified figures. For non-Cobras, the original Iron Grenadier is very likely.
>>
>>9883257
Oh man I'd dig an ig in classified but it has to have ig destro, I love that look. Of the vipers I think night viper would be the easiest to do but the idea of techno vipers is fun.
Current backer count is 12,067, guess we will get an update on Tuesday.
>>
>>9883257
>>9883403
I would get all of those.
>>
>>9883403
Classified looks like it's doing well enough that Hasbro have announced a lot of upcoming products, and Destro is one of the most popular villains, so much so that he was the FIRST Cobra released. Iron Grenadiers Destro feels inevitable. Aside from the regular Iron Grenadier, the IG troop I'd most want would be TARGAT.

>Destro is one of the most popular villains, so much so that he was the FIRST Cobra released

While Destro is popular Hasbro is really bad about dragging out figures people badly want into later waves, look at Lightning Collection, Legends and Black Series and seeing all the waves Classified is no different with high demand figures like Alley Viper, BAT, and Stalker, being teased since day 1 but just now rolling out over a year into the line, while lesser ones rolled out sooner like Red Ninja,"Arctic"Storm Shadow and Breaker. Again Destro is a big deal, easily seen as the Trinity of the names people think of with Cobra, but I don't think he was first picked because he was the highest demand, otherwise he would have been rebundled in more revision waves like they did with Cobra Commader (which imo was way to many, people like the guy, but not four wave revisions and two repaints worth) rather than just the two (the OG wave and then the refresher wave that put the ring on his head). There is also the fact the PD Destro is still reasonable to get two years later while Baby Blue CC from last year still sells out instantly and is always nearing or over $100 even after a 4th(5th?) re-release on pulse.
I get this is nitpicking but Hasbro is so seedy with stuff I feel like it should always be pointed out when they pull this kind of crap.

Got my Cobra Officer in from Amazon and he has a dried string of the flesh paint going into his left eye which got on top of the face printing and ended up making him look like he has a weird cataracts, along with a random black streak at the corner of the eye. Kinda sucks but I'm going to see if I can scrape away that extra paint that's on his pupil and then just make it look like he got blinded in that eye.
