The Hasbro G.I. Joe team held a Fan First Friday live stream on the 21st of January, revealing a number of new products for the 6-inch G.I. Joe line in 2022. As we often see with Marvel Legends, the G.I. Joe team will be utilising Digital Renders for reveals, allowing them to show new products earlier and then update these to actual product images closer to release.
The G.I. Joe Classified Series will see the addition of Tomax, Xamot, and Stalker. This trio of releases will be part of the next general release wave. Cobra forces will also be swelled by a Cobra Vipers 3-Pack Army Builder set.
There will also be a new 6-inch scale retro line with the figures here being packed onto retro cards and using more classic paint jobs. While not completely confirmed, figures were shown of Destro, Gung-Ho, Lady Jaye, and The Baroness. Some of these may turn out to be standard Classified releases.
More details and potentially pre-orders were promised at the end of February when the 40th Anniversary for G.I. Joe kicks off. The Retro carded line will most likely be confirmed and shown at this point.
For collectors of the 3.75-inch 'O-Ring' line there is a new Cobra 2-Pack of a Cobra Officer and Cobra Trooper, a new Duke, and a new Cobra Commander with battle helmet.

About Me : As a child of the '70s and '80s I grew up in a golden age for action figures and in my youth bought and sold myself through collections of Star Wars, G.I. Joe (Action Force), and M.A.S.K. while also dabbling in He-Man, Transformers and Ghostbusters. Roll forward and I am now reliving that Youth with the action figures of today and am a collector and fan of the larger 6-8 inch figures from my favourite movie and TV licenses - including the ones mentioned above, but also the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Doctor Who, and the Aliens. I launched The Mephitsu Archives in 2015 with a view of creating a UK-focused site or these figures where fans can pick up the latest action figure news, read reviews and get information on where to buy their figures and what is currently on store shelves. I hope I am delivering that to you guys...
