    A Transformers forum is posting skus from TRU Canada of unannounced GI JOE toys. $12.99 Titan Figures (which are the 12 inch plastic 5POA figures I'm not surprised they are doing those), a $12.99 Ninja figure assortment which I am guessing is the 4 inch movie line, $29.99 GI Joe figure assortment, $29.99 Gi joe ninja strike figure and a $29.99 Gi Joe themed figure assortment.

    Disclaimer these are Canada prices and take stuff like this with a grain of salt until officially confirmed. My guess is the GI JOE Ninja Strike and GI JOE themed figures are the 6 inch Classified figures with the Ninja Strike being a movie wave.

    You are a bold and courageous person, afraid of nothing. High on a hill top near your home, there stands a dilapidated old mansion. Some say the place is haunted, but you don't believe in such myths. One dark and stormy night, a light appears in the topmost window in the tower of the old house. You decide to investigate... and you never return...

    I wouldn't expect him for a while, but I wonder if they could do Sgt. Slaughter or if his rights are tied up with Mattel and WWE?

    He looks great. Way closer to the original design than expected.

    I agree on the figure... way better job on Destro than I would have expected.

    (BTW thanks for always sharing these cool announcements on '80s toys.)

    Oh yeah, that's nice! I'm not down on the line like some, but this is more what I had in mind as far as updates. I think they will dial back some of the more colorful aspects based on feedback they got from the older fan response.

    Duke and Destro are the closest to the original designs so far. I kinda get the complaints on Roadblock because people were probably expecting an update of the 84 figure. It is actually a pretty good update of the 86 version, though. I'm hoping the regular Snake Eyes wont have of the green/grey pants of the exclusive.
