New and Re-Do - A Classified Game Thread
Inspired by Beamish's One a Day thread, but I'm not able to commit to doing this every day, I'll post a few characters twice a week(ish) and you respond saying whether or not you'd like to see them in the Classified Line. And if so, post pictures of your preferred versions! I'll list a few never-done figures and one figure that's already been done.
And for a Joe how about the original Joe Colton
For our Re-Do let's kick it off with everyone's favorite: Snake Eyes
I'm coming to Classified as someone new to GI Joe, so any thread that gets people posting characters I've never seen before sounds great to me!
That Road Pig design in the first pic is just so awesome. The Dreadnoks have been some of the most fun figures in the line. T.A.R.G.A.T. looks great too - you just know they'd go all out and make his rocket-pack thing look incredible.
Those are the only two snake eyes I had growing up, so i definitely want a version of them.
I want all of these! As for Joe Colton, I'd like if they did a version of him with multiple skin tones/facial hair styles to showcase many of his different looks, maybe as part of the anniversary offerings they're doing next year. Would be fun to see people army building the original Joe.
I'm 18th do-and-die but I'd pick up 6" figures of the coolest Joe of all: Sci-Fi. Gimme both his v1 and v2 figures; and I'd especially take the v4 if they fixed those godawfully ass-stupid colors to match the v2 like I repainted him waaaaaaaaaay back in the day.
v3 was a white/blue trim repaint of v2 as an astronaut, but it's Meh in comparison to the v2 colors, imho.
I used all three of them simutaneously on my team, with v2 going by 'Polaron' and v4 as Major Anatoly Zovov, 1st-gen Russian immigrant going by 'Starfall'.
I'm the outlier on all these Joe designs. Give me the OG designs everyday, for every character. I have mild interest in Road Pig and moderate interest in Colton but no interest in the others.
Definitely want Road Pig and yes to both of those Snake Eyes designs. 👍
He's an O13. He's from my home state of Wisconsin. It's Grand Slam!
On the Cobra side of things let's go for a newer figure Jungle Viper
Let's have our first member of the Oktober Guard with the most kid friendly: Horror Show
And for our Redo how about Major Bludd - he's had some fun variations:
Let's see if we can reel in some more responses with this round's choices. Many of the main Cobras are done, but latter-day ARAH fans could go for some Slice and Dice
Over on the Joe side how do folks feel about another Infantryman with Footloose (he must be coming soon as the only member of Slaughter's Marauders not ready for a repaint)
On the more obscure side how would folks feel about Sherlock - a more recent addition from Hama's Joe comic
And for this round's Re-Do how about one of Gung-Ho's alternate looks?
25th anniversary Para Viper, please!
Such a stacked figure, perhaps a bit too much so? Hasbro would probably package it as a deluxe now.
Also, I second the blue-shirted, fishing-vested paintball Snake Eyes from OP. I had the 1/6 Hall of Fame version, he made all my sister's Barbies rethink their lives with Ken.
I think that Sherlock's a given for the line. There's no way Hasbro will pass her up if they're smart. I really want Slice and Dice too, along with the rest of the Ninja Force characters, but I want them to do some sort of modernized update for their masks. I always found Slice's mask to be boring, and Dice's mask to be a bit busy/silly. I'm sure they could do great updates for both of them, then re-release each figure in the retro series with classic masks if there's demand. Of course, interchangeable heads would solve everything, if Hasbro was willing to do that.
I know we already have Torpedo, but how would folks feel about adding Wet-Suit?
How about an Iron Grenadier to go with Metal Head?
For a Cobra how about Krake - he who would become Cobra Commander during an IDW run.
And for our Re-do how about a more traditional or more crazy Rock 'n Roll?
@chooch555 May be wrong but I believe the Iron Grenadier was a name reveal already.
IIRC I think Metal Head was listed somewhere as Iron Grenadier Metal Head reflecting his affiliation which got conflated with the admittedly confusingly named troops. Either way, I personally love that design and would love for them to dive deeper into Destro's team.
