Parts reuse - what can be used for who?

Tue Oct 26, 2021 7:56 am

The latest reveals have just increased the catalog of parts for the classified line. Hasbro has done a pretty good job so far with the reuse.

Other than the already rumoured figures coming who do you think can be made with the currently available parts?

I saw madflava mention the new sleeves on Spirit could be reused for Shipwreck.

Storm Shadow could be reused for a more classic inspired Red Ninja.

HA Roadblock torso could be reused fo Copperhead.

I’m a bit intrigued about the new tooling for Croc Master. His torso is very specific to his character so I don’t know where else it could be reused other than a future repaint Pulse/SDCC exclusive.

Not to dampen the Shipwreck enthusiasm, but his original figure had true short sleeves as opposed to the rolled sleeves of Spirit’s mold. Those rolled sleeves would be great for a Viper or Flint redux among others, though: wonder if we will see it for the inevitable Tiger Force Flint.

Depends on the media. In the Cartoon and comic he had rolled up sleeves.

We need a Junkyard for the head.

But we can easily get Flint and Junkyard disguised as Cobra Troopers. They have sleeve cuffs above the elbow.

Junkyard is the dog, that’s Mutt :wink:

The arms on the new Outback could easily be reused for Rock & Roll V2

I was thinking the spirit sleeves would work great for an Original 13 style Rock 'n Roll, but outback's T-Shirt and buff arms might work well for more modern interpretations where he's got long hair and a black T-Shirt like the way he looks on the GI joe website. I doubt that Hasbro is thinking this much about Rock 'n Roll, but he's one of my faves.

While I don’t yet have the physical figure in hand, it seems that the Breaker figure could largely be reused for: Clutch, Zap, Short Fuse, Hawk v1, Steeler, just with new heads, and gear.

I’m hoping for all of those.

I’m wondering if the new forearms and gloves might be for a new Cobra Commander?

Ooo great call out, I didn't notice that. I was too focused on this being repainted and rereleased about a dozen times!

Much of Lady Jaye can be re-used for Covergirl.

She just really needs a new head, arms, and jacket.

I'm hoping for Blonde, because Scarlett's our Redhead and Lady Jaye's our Brunette.

Given they reused a lot of Destro for Barbecue, I would think they could also squeeze at least Airtight, Blowtorch, Sci-Fi, Techno-Viper out of that mold. Sorta similar 'jumpsuit' style figures with new heads/addons etc.
