The Cobra Island mission may still be active for many of us, but today we start our next – G.I. Joe Classified Wave 2! These guys starting hitting big box retailers recently, filling in the Wave 1 pegs that cleared pretty quick. The wave consists of Gung Ho, Cobra Commander and a Red Ninja. The case break down is – 2 Gung Ho, 3 Cobra Commander, 1 Red Ninja. Why? To raise blood pressure I suppose.
We’ve run Gung Ho through the motions so read on to check out over 35 HD shots and some quick thoughts. We’ve also run the rest of wave 2 so check back tomorrow for the next gallery!

G.I. Joe Classified Wave 2 Gung Ho
Works for me. I’ve read some folks having issue with his size, specific details, but for me he’s solid. Gung Ho was always a little out there design wise with the lack of shirt and brighter color camo, but they stayed true to the shirtless aspect and updated the rest. His tat, I’m indifferent but I can see folks wanting that OG Marine tat. Sculpt wise he uses a lot of Roadblock’s base figure – the waist down looks the same. The arm guard is the same as Roadblock V2. Head is a sharp sculpt with the handlebar mustache and I dig the mohawk. Hey, everyone tries out new cuts and facial hair over the years, this is where he’s at right now. Backpack is cool but the guns tend to pop out easy. Bottom line, great overall fig and a welcome addition to the Joe ranks, filling out the core cast.
