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.

Yep they had Scarlett and Akiko, sorry I didn't get any pics. I went back later yesterday looking for IW Captain America, and the Akikos and Scarletts were gone

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?
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.
Thanks! Looking forward to seeing how she looks with the rest of the Joe. 8)

I still haven't seen the movie, but I picked up the figures anyway and three for three they stand in really well with the main line. I'll likely never use the unmasked heads, but Storm Shadow is a very slick figure, Snake Eyes himself is a well-articulated, clean-lined variant worth keeping around (though the trigger figures fit with the trench knives very weirdly), and Baroness... Looks like a comic book version of Baroness trying out a new haircut, which honestly just feels on brand for Baroness. Only one I'm on the fence with is Akiko because I'm not familiar with the character, but I'll pick up Scarlett too since she just looks like a very solid variant of the character, even a bit less cartoony than the main line's (though I don't mind the bright colors of the first release, she's fab IMO).

I have two of Akiko on preorder. Great base for a future custom.
Even if I don't have her in the Joe lineup I think she will be good with Wolverine, Daredevil or Shang-Chi.

I really regret missing Silver Samurai when he was on clearance... Would have made the good start for a Ran display. :rolleyes:

Edit: Good Scarlett review.
Unfortunately the movie figure has a different neck peg so no easy head swaps.

This an amazing figure! I love her face and all the details sculpted in her costume. I also think her silhouette is far superior then the clunky regular release.

I wouldn't mind if Hasbro used this as a base for an eventual more classic looking colors Scarlett.

I may even buy two to try and do a custom repaint myself.

Found and couldn’t pass up. I gave her the knives that came with Snake Eyes.

I doubt this head fits on the other Scarlett figure. Ball seems smaller. I haven’t tried.

Her boots are thick at the ankle but they work. I like her crossbow size. Wish the elbows had more ROM. She has butterfly shoulder joints. Cool.

I'm going to have to track this Scarlett down, looks like she turned out great. I think it'll be a hard decision on which one to put in my Classified display.

Is the crossbow still the (lame) one that comes apart or is it one solid piece?

Debating getting her just for the gun and to hollow out the head a bit to stick on Classified Scarlett.

The crossbow looks like the one that came with Beach Head, just not obnoxious, brilliant green. If that is the case, my Beach Head will be inheriting this one once Scarlett goes on clearance and I grab her.

My store has 35 figures and they didn't get the Scarlett wave. This store lost Classified at the Jan reset, so this was their return to the shelves. What a disaster.

Not the same, but close enough that you can get it to plug into Beachhead's backpack. I think it's the nicest looking sculpt of the three different crossbows we've gotten in the line.

Missed Scarlett in store, but saw Akiko. Very nice figure, but she wasn't militant enough for me to add to my Joe collection.

Found at least a case each of Scarlett and Akiko at one of my local Walmart's, along with the other 3 movie figures. Nothing beats the 36 Snake Eyes and Storm Shadows I found the other day though. Passed on both as I'm not in a huge rush for them. I'll wait for my Amazon preorders which should be shipping soon, and probably pick up a few more of these when they hit clearence in a couple months. Scarlett looks incredible in person though! The headsculpt is fantastic. Akiko looks like good female ninja fodder, and could maybe work for a casual Xialing from Legends?

I can’t speak to Scarlett since I don’t have the movie one yet, but I’ve found that when the neck pegs aren’t compatible, it is possible to actually swap the necks themselves and then pop on the head. I was able to do that with a regular and movie Snake-Eyes.
