If you’ve not heard the news in the past week, some of the most anticipated new Joe products to hit shelves in the near future AREN’T related to the film G.I. Joe: Retaliation. Revealed by Gyre-Viper over the JoeDeclassified.com, there is apparently a series of 6 new-style construction figures that will be hitting “discount stores” later this year. I’ve mirrored a few of the images here but I highly encourage everyone to check out the full slate of images over at JoeDeclassified.com.
The initial assortment appears to consist of the following figures:
- 1991 Snake Eyes
- 1992 “Ninja Force” Storm Shadow
- Duke (in the same deco as the original 13 Joes)
- GvC era Shipwreck
- Cobra Commander
- Cobra Trooper
However, it doesn’t stop there– it appears that there will be running color changes for all six figures including one that highly resembles the driver of the Pile Driver T’Gin-Zu!
Check out all the rest of Gyre-Viper’s pics and the discussion over at following threads on the JoeDeclassified.com forums:
At the end of the day, these leave me far more excited than most of the forthcoming G.I. Joe: Retaliation figures hitting later next month. Great-looking parts use, figure stands, and repaints that give us even more obscure characters all combine into a SOLID WIN! Now if only these would start hitting stores!
