@normdapito I would say Flint and Major Bludd are two of the biggest outstanding Classified figures that could get Retro releases to look closer to their original toy looks.

Doc is up on Amazon Norm - if you want to pre-order.

 

I'm trying to figure out how to cancel my Pre-orders on Pulse since I was able to get them at Amazon.    It used to be easy -  there used to be a box to check each item and then a button to cancel.   I don't have any of those options on my Pulse order now.... so I may have to call customer service.   

 

I did miss out on the Tiger Force two pack.    That bummed me out a little that it's sold out -  I have all the other Tiger Force figures, so I'll want to track these down.   Are they going to be available at Target as well?   If not I'll have to hope they come back in stock at Pulse eventually.

 

 And I'm on the fence about the HMS and Techno Viper.   $75 feels like a lot and I'm just not sure.

@panthercult mind sharing a link? I’m getting no where searching.. and I’m sure I’m getting flagged by searching “Classified Doc” over and over.

Sorry,   was distracted by work (stupid work) -  and didn't see this.   I couldn't find the listings just searching Amazon, but I have "preternia.com"  saved on Twitter and he always posts the amazon links as soon as they're live even though the listings don't come up in a basic Amazon search.

 

Glad you were able to pre-order him anyway... he looks great.

Thanks for that.   I searched the site using "Tiger Force" and it didn't come up - though a bunch of the other Tiger Force figures did.    I searched using "GI Joe" - and got a bunch of classified figures but not that set.    Finally after seeing your post I searched "Roadblock" and there they were.   So that one is on order now.   Sweet.

I noticed with cancelling Pulse orders lately, you may have to wait a few days(maybe a week?) before the cancel option appears on newly made preorders. It never used to be like that, I’m not sure when the change happened. 

Anyhow, I’m in for everything. They all look good.  Doc is actually my most anticipated in this wave followed by Jinx. Would have been nice to get another 013 member offered and out of the way though.

Gnawgahyde is not among my most wanted Dreadnoks, so I will probably wait for a sale. 

This is probably sacrilege to some, but I don't even think Gnawgahyde fits in with the other Dreadnoks.  They all look like mad max biker rejects, and he looks like he belongs in the Australian Outback.  He's still a nice-looking figure, but all that reuse makes him a tad boring.   Very old reuse that we've seen a lot already.

Zarana, Torch, Ripper and Buzzer look like regular bikers, road pig does look like a mad max character but Zartan and Zandar just look like their own thing.

First thing I am doing with SAW viper is giving him the original gun from the 1/18th figure

I think it says a lot about this line that a two-pack featuring two repainted figures sells out on two sites in a matter of hours. 

Tiger Force forever!

I’m in for all things Joe. Classified is the thing I enjoy most. I know reuse will always be part of the line. The SMS will obviously be made in green one day to make a Joe MMS. That will be okay. Joes may need some missiles to shoot down a Rattler. I just hope the need for reuse doesn’t diminish the uniqueness of characters. 

Gnawgehide looks pretty sweet from the waist up. His animals are awesome. I’m glad one of the pictures Hasbro shows the boar has a mouth that will open. Honestly they could have given him Recondo’s rifle and I would have been okay. He didn’t need Low Light’s rifle pack. The machete with the odd straps that clip on his arm are not as cool as the idea to recreate his 3 3/4” figure’s look. His Roadblock/Gung Ho legs are not great. I do like the monkey but agree with another post I read that he should have come with Zanzibar.

Doc is a great merge of Shipwrecks legs and Recondo’s upper torso. He looks fantastic. The new 60th army soldier pack on Doc allowing the interchangeable packs is very good. I do think I will get the Gridiron kit for Doc. I want the other medical supplies. Man Doc looks so cool. He has such a cool vibe to him. So much versatility to that figure. Well done Hasbro.

Jinx is very good too. I don’t have a problem with the sleeveless look. I may incorporate a wired scarf to give her more movement. Her unmasked portrait retained that beautiful look from the render. She looks sweet with the blindfold.  I picture her carving up a squad of Cobra with that blindfold on.  Such a good looking figure. Falcon will have to freshen up his link to impress that Joe.

Torch is the completion of the trio. I do wish he had a blade like the other two. He doesn’t need two side arms. His design is in tune with 80s figure and Classified. He also yields flame effects. BATs have new firepower to demonstrate now. Still wished they worked in grape soda accessories. I mean when they aren’t killing people for their own purposes or trashing Joe vehicles they will want a cold one. Oh well.

I’m torn on the Night Creepers. I mean I like ninja and these guys are purple. A new shade in the ninja arsenal. But I really want Slice and Dice more. I guess they will make the leader one day. Looks more like a street punk than a ninja leader. I’ll get a couple to try them out.

I will watch for TF Roadblock and Tripwire. They look good. It’s Target. I don’t need them charging my card over and over.

Fun stream. Yo Joe June is gonna be nuts.  Until then we will get the VAMP, Quick Kick, Big Boa, Techno-Viper, Airborne, Duke, Scarlett, Recondo, Metal Head, … Am I missing one? 60th army soldier. I think that’s it. Then it will be Yo Joe June.

Thwipp!

I'm not keen on Doc's sleeves rolled up to his biceps. Aside from that, he's a stunner. But Jinx and Torch are where my bread is buttered. Been saving opening Buzzer and Ripper for when Torch gets released. Honestly, I can live with just these three Dreadnoks, but I'd definitely buy Monkeywrench if they made him since I had him as a kid. Zandar too. I didn't have the rest, but I'm sure they'd do such a good job with Zanzibar and Thrasher that I'd cave on them too. No attachment to Road Pig, but he's like Gnaw, for whom I'd wait for a sale.

Quick tip, get a Target Redcard. There is no credit check for a debit card and using it gets you 5% off every purchase, even stuff already on sale. It also stops those monthly "is this card still good" checks.
