So Classified has been including great accessories. What do they include with the Twins? Same items? Those big ole automatic guns I seem to remember them having? The cables and cable glide? Knives for sure. What else? Personally alternate hands so you pull off those gymnastic poses they executed. The renders showed holsters and sheaths didn’t they? Maybe they were just knife sheaths for the belt and boot. Maybe the gun will stow on the back, built into the sash/armor. They could come with a case of money too as financiers of Cobra. They could repurpose Destro’s case.

Please let Stalker get a jet pack…long shot I know. I’m gonna dream big. Gung Ho is obviously going to come with grenade launcher and big gun and knife. Maybe they do muzzle flashes too…probably not.

Should be fun.

Thwipp!

What a great livestream!

I’m particularly psyched about the Viper 3-pack! Love the Viper figure. It’s great to be able to get more of them. Hopefully not too hard to get this set. The Viper Officer looks very cool.

I’m hoping we can also get the Sonic Fighters version of the Viper in the bright gold and tan uniform with the bright red faceplate.

The translucent covers for BATs, which I ordered from Etsy, arrived.

Super happy with them.Image

Yeah, the Crimson Twins make it evident that they're not even trying to pretend the line isn't just "vintage toys but better and bigger." I know they said they didn't want to do that two years ago, but clearly that's what most fans want.
I was hoping the Retro line would be the home for ARAH designs, and Classified would be for the JoePro-totin' "day after tomorrow" designs. I really did like what they'd dialed into with, say, Flint and Maj. Bludd. I was really looking forward to the tattoed Storm Shadow from the art.

As it looks now, though, the uber-modern figures on my shelf currently are going to start looking really out of place if they're going all-in in the 80s designs.

I really enjoy the Joe and Marvel live streams. Meanwhile the Star Wars team is MIA.

Clear covers is how Hasbro should have issued them from the start. No idea what they were thinking making them black.

I didn't order the 5 pack off etsy.

I don't even own A B.A.T. let only many B.A.T.s that would necessitate an entire pack....what am I gonna do with a 5 pack?

I'll admit, this one presentation made me regret not waiting getting into this line. They announced the exact looks I wanted of every character that I already have.

Tomax and Xamot got me very excited though.

Are those clear chest plates meant to look lenticular purposely? That's kinda genius. Even if it's not and it's a byproduct of 3D printing processes, that's a convenient accident.

So are the BAT or AViper coming up on any inventory checker? I was just told that the Target app is no good for searching these.

Have y’all seen this? Mine still says 1/31 on my order status. Either way I have one preordered from Dorkside when it went live.

I started individual threads for all the upcoming figures.

I’m just trying to generate more activity in The Pit section and build the G.I. Joe community here on TheFwoosh.

I figured. Like I said, either Dorkside or GS gets them first so I preordered from both one to keep in package and one to open.
