    First look GI Joe Classified.

    Snake Eyes convention figure. Looks like an update of the 85 Snake Eyes. Nice.

    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...

    Neat looking figure. Looking forward to seeing the rest.
    I’m interested to see what Jazzwares does with the 33/4” line their releasing....although I still can’t believe Hasbro is licensing out what I consider their defining property!?

    I think Hasbro is starting to see themselves as more of an entertainment company first and a toy company second. They also licensed out Micro Machines to Wicked Cool toys, Classic My Little Pony to Basic Fun and many board games to winning moves.

    The figure looks great but man, Hasbro's packaging the last several years is so bland and unattractive. Mostly black...no colors or POP in the aisle.

    I think it's supposed to be like a "prestige" thing but it's strange it doesn't try to invoke that winning packaging design of the 1980s.

    Maybe the retail version will have different packaging? What I find interesting about the box art is hints of other releases. You can see already rumored characters like Duke, Scarlett, Destro and Roadblock and also unannounced ones like Gung Ho, Cobra Commander, Baroness and I think Storm Shadow

    Bout time! This looks great. Yeah, the packaging is a bit bland, and I would rather see them reuse or at least thematically call back to it. But maybe since they did that with the 25th anniversary line, they are opting to go in another direction, and also pull in the Star Wars Black series collectors.

    Yeah, the Joe packaging looks like a carbon copy of the SW Black Series...even the new ML packages are bland. Love the throwback Toy Biz cards though.

    I am surprised that they added all of those accessories and yet did not give him a Timber.
