Earlier today Hasbro Pulse sent out word that a G.I. Joe drop would be happening on their site. At 1PM, Barbecue and Breaker with RAM Cycle went live there. While they did sell out, it wasn’t seconds. Many folks on the forums scored one. Soon after, they went live on Target proper. WHERE THEY ARE STILL AVAILABLE. I wasn’t even going to post this, as normally by the time the story is up these things are sold out. However, 47 minutes later – both are still available on Target.com. Check the links below and save yourself the heartburn later in the year.
The Alpha Commando 2 Pack of Snake Eyes and Timber revealed earlier this month is officially live to pre-order around the web. This is a mass release not tied to one specific store so hopefully it’s less difficult to obtain. Hit our sponsors below to grab your copies! Read on for additional pics and official product descriptions.
Pre-Orders are live for G.I. Joe Classified Heavy Artillery Roadblock. He is an Amazon exclusive with a small amount available on Hasbro Pulse as well. Go get him, we’ll update with details soon!
Update – official product descriptions below and pics available after the break!

Here we go again. Time to take a look at one of the most recent figures to drop for the G.I. Joe Classified line – Major Bludd. Another fantastic figure tied to the absolutely awful Target exclusive Cobra Island campaign. Technically, this figure has not even been announced yet. He isn’t in most Target systems as existing. And yet, stores are getting him and putting him out, randomly. Assuming it’s going to be like the last rounds – each store will get a case, with no set date. They’ll be gone soon after, or even before they hit shelves. They may or may not get random restocks after that, with no way to know. The store may or may not know wtf is going on with it. Blah blah, cry a river. I get it. At this point, I did not even attempt to go looking, I just payed going price on eBay. Between gas, time, and the pure concentrated rage I feel going in and out of Target looking for these things made it worth it. Aside from exclusives that I have no choice for – not spending a dime at that store again.
ANYWAY, on to the figure. It’s great! G.I. Joe Classified has been awesome since launch, even the less than perfect releases are still good IMO. Major Bludd is one of the really good ones though. Fantastic head sculpt, gear and weaponry that touches the original in essence while upgrading for modern times. Retro notes with the helmet, missile pistol, dog tags. Even a touch with the MARS logo on his now fully robotic arm. It’s just a great version for a core character, one that should have been available at mass retail first.
We’ve run him for a set of pics, both basic and hero shots after the break. Read on to check it out!
Earlier tonight we got our first look at Snake Eyes – G.I. Joe Origins in action via a teaser trailer and quick featurette from Paramount. We’ve run both for some key screen captures so everyone can further dig down and check for those Easter eggs! There are a couple in there along with overall great visuals. Read on to check out 80+ shots in HD format!
Hasbro has officially confirmed and revealed G.I. Joe Classified Major Bludd. He started leaking out via eBay auctions two weeks ago and is now finding his way out of Asian markets more regularly. He will most likely be a Target exclusive Cobra Island entry. According to Hasbro, more details are to come in June about when and where. Check the teaser image after the break!
Icon Heroes have shown off their first G.I. Joe licensed item, confirming they are in the game for more G.I. Joe goodness to come. They generally make accent pieces for collectors. Things like statues, bobble heads, vinyl figures, enamel pins and the like. This one is of Snake Eye’s sword, and while we can’t 100% confirm – it looks to be a letter opener. More details will be coming soon, so stay tuned.
Hasbro Pulse Fan Fest is over and we finally have a look at G.I. Joe Origins Snake Eyes figures! Pre-Orders for these guys are up now, hit our sponsors below to check them out!
Hasbro Pulse has updated with new details on the upcoming Fan Fest panel for April 9th. The GI Joe Panel will include G.I. Joe Origins Snake Eyes toy reveals, including Role Play and Classified items. Henry Golding, the actor playing Snake Eyes in the new movie, is also rumored to appear. In addition to this info, a teaser image was shared showing new key art for Snake Eyes in a suit design we haven’t seen before, so I’m guessing this is an artistic version of the upcoming movie’s look. Read on for more details and the pic, stay tuned for more as it pops.
