Don't forget Canada!! People who preordered the Retro CG on Walmart.ca have already received him. Not that I am personally trying to rub salt in the wound since I didn't preorder him and now I am stuck waiting to see if he shows up on shelves later.os189 wrote: ↑Wed Jan 11, 2023 1:52 amI was thrilled with the Classified Storm Shadow and it was definitely one of the best figures of last year....but I have to be honest with myself: it could be better.
I really think the Retro version is gonna fix the things I don't like. Those arm-guards and gloves looked cool back when Hasbro unveiled the figure, but honestly, I just want the regular arm wraps and bare hands.
I'm even gonna go ahead and give him an extra Articulated Icons chest strap cause I don't really like the molded in throwing stars either. I'll keep regular Classified SS as the "archer" version with his hood up, but the Retro is gonna be as classic 1984 as possible!
IF the freaking thing ever shows up!! Jeez. Probably won't be out til summer. As far as I know, it hasn't even shown up in hand anywhere, unlike Retro CG and Snake Eyes that have been out in Europe for a while, despite being solicited later.
More waiting...that seems to be the name of the game in the action figure collecting world these days...just waiting and waiting and waiting.
That would be a great idea, but I wonder if they are trying to avoid, at least as a courtesy, doing direct cartoon colours right now due to Super7 and their Ultimates release? I know it isn't very likely, but I think the Retro line is a bit more geared towards the toy looks.Ash Talon wrote: It’s too bad they didn’t make the retro Lady Jaye in animation colors. Dark pants and lighter shirt. I think it would distinguish the two versions more instead of the slightly different versions we got.
It's funny. Up here (Canada) Baroness sold out pretty fast, but yeah poor Lady Jaye is still sitting on shelves. However not to the same degree as I have seen on many toy hunt videos. When I see her on the shelves it is usually just a couple of them, not the 6-10 I see in the videos.PurpleLantern wrote: Seems like absolutely no one else wants any Lady Jaye and Baroness on the full pegs here.
Maybe it is time to take a break from making Lady Jaye Hasbro. Her regular Classified release was also a big peg warmer.
