Just paint her skin green and she can be, like, Cobra Commander's mom. Or at least a Cobra-La until there's an actual Cobra-La.

It's crazy-- now that the movie is out of theaters the first wave of Classified figures are starting to pile up around here. I've been to multiple Walmart stores lately that are sitting on multiples of all three figures for several days.

Has anyone seen Akiko or Scarlett yet?
I can't even find a pre-release video review of an early sample.

If the other figures are starting to peg-warm and the movie did poorly Hasbro wouldn't cancel the product?

Also, how many figures would Hasbro need to sell to recover the tooling cost for the molds?

They've likely already been produced, just like this first wave. IF the wave really does peg warm (and I think the "hanging on pegs" thing is just because they've been trickling out right now), we might see them go to Marshalls/TJ Maxx/etc if retail doesn't want them. Considering we're not likely to see a lot of anything for holiday sales, I assume they will make it to retail shelves just so something is there.

I saw pics of the Scarlett in-hand and she's stunning. Fans of the actress will be happy but also those who didn't love the Wave 1 Scarlett sculpt will have a really beautiful head to use in its place. A bit disappointed Pulse still lists December. Grrrr.

I just found Akiko at Target in Portland, OR tonight. Scarlett already sold, but I was mainly only after Akiko to integrate her into the regular Classified line.

She looks a lot better IMO than the promo images. I’ll try to get a picture tomorrow.

These figures are great, too bad the movie was garbage.

The Joe movies have just gotten progressively worse.

Shame too, cuz I really like Henry Golding.

Yea, I’m sure as we get more and more Classified and space becomes an issue, I’ll dump at least Storm Shadow and Baroness. Good figures but just no real attachment.

I'm justifying Baroness by using her as Chameleon.

Storm Shadow is definitely just a stand in for me.

Watched a review that confirms that Scarlet has swivel at the boot like Baroness. Figure looks great and will probably become by default Classified Scarlett. I love the colors and the head sculpt is way better than wave 1 Scarlett.

Found Scarlet tonight. She does look like she can pass for a normal Classifieds line Scarlet so I picked her up. Passed on Akiko as I have no idea who that character is.

I would love to see this Scarlett figure next to Lady Jaye and Baroness to see if she fits with the other well done females in the line.

So if anyone could take a picture or do a review, let us know.

I was going to wait and see if Scarlett would go on sale/clearance, but now I see many people are thinking, like me, to make her their main Scarlett until something better comes along. Guess I better grab the figure as soon as I can.

Oh nice!

You saw Scarlet and Akiko from the movie?

I think this is the first sighting at a walmart, the others have been target and overseas.

I have a walmart 12-15 minutes in every direction, but my one closest Target is about 45, and then the others are all an hour plus.
