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.

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!

We have discovered a brand new listing of a novel series based on the popular G.I. Joe Classified line of action figures by Hasbro.
Titled as G.I. Joe: Classified (Book One), the first book of the series is planned to be released in August across multiple countries worldwide. Written by Jon Skovron, the artwork for the book is handled by none other than Phil Noto.
“In this action-packed series starter, a group of ordinary kids finds themselves facing extraordinary circumstances . . . and with the help of mentors like Duke, Scarlett, and Roadblock, they’ll find what it means to be a team, rise to the occasion, and save the day when nobody else can. A heart–pounding thrill ride from start to finish that will enthrall G.I. Joe fans and action-adventure readers alike.”
Writer Jon Skovron is the author of several Young Adult fantasy novels, including Misfit, Man Made Boy, and This Broken Wondrous World.
Artist Phil Noto is no stranger to the G.I. Joe franchise. Mr. Noto’s latest entry to G.I. Joe is the packaging artwork for G.I. Joe Classified Series Scarlett (news post image). We will likely see Duke, Roadblock, and many others in Phil Noto’s signature art style.
