Once again, every other property gets the love. G.I. Joe, even with a film coming out, gets next to nothing. Five movie figures shown, and nothing else. I expected as much, but it still sucks to be shafted yet again.

So we're into April and so far there are only 4 figures in the Classified (non-movie) line this year and one of those is a repaint?

That was incredibly disappointing. I understand promoting the movie, and showing all your movie merch. But, they couldn't show one or two regular Classified figures?

Between the "Happy Hour" Party and this, it feels like fans come dead last.

The most disappointing line just keeps on disappointing...

Movie figures are a given....but come on. This line is moving at a snails pace. 6 figures in the mainline for the first half of the year? Is that right?

You're going to jinx it... Also no jinx. What the heck.

And yeah I wish they'd do more with the brand, and get away from the video game designs so they can make more characters.

I want to think they're holding back on movie products to show and release, but who knows what they're doing. If the movie is coming out in July I'd think they'd have mentioned stuff that would hit in say June or July. They've had enough time to design stuff for the movie.

Fans Last Friday was a bust!

IDGAF about those movie figures at this point.

Hasbro is suffering from Headupassitis and it’s getting terminal.

2021 will be a loss for the company if things don’t turn around fast.

Wish I was happy with the movie stuff. Unmasked heads sculpts look decent though, but no normal Classified news is disappointing. At least the Transformers stuff made me happy, and judging by 3 items being sold out, I'm not alone is that assessment..

Did you watch the Power Rangers panel? They got 4 glitter ranger repaints and one Target exclusive figure. The repaints weren't even ready for the panel so they just showed renders.

So the only things they announced were a bunch of movie figures that will only release long after the movie's run in theaters/on streaming services.


The figures are great, but this brand is being horribly mismanaged.

I pre-ordered all of these, but I anticipate that I'll be cancelling all of them except Scarlett and MAYBE Akiko.

I want to like Baroness but I HATE the hair and the outfit design.
