Hasbro confirmed 3 of their new 6 inch G.I. Joe Classified Series figures at New York Toy Fair, with figures of Duke, Scarlett and Raodblock revealed. These were part of wave 1 and there were obvious gaps in the wave with more figures to reveal.
The first of those has been unveiled today on National Joe Day, and it is Destro - as has long been rumoured.
"COBRAAAAAAA! March 27th is #NationalJoeDay, and #HasbroPulse is celebrating by revealing the brand new G.I. Joe Classified Series Destro Figure! This figure is a must-have for any G.I. Joe collection, with multiple points of articulation, premium character- inspired design, and accessories! Even cooler, check out the epic custom packaging artwork by artist Oliver Barrett.
The G.I. Joe Classified Series Destro Figure is available now for pre-order on Hasbro Pulse!"
Destro will come with two weapons and his Cobra briefcase. The briefcase opens up to reveal both a computer and bundles of cash inside.
He is packed in a window box with character art by Oliver Barrett. He is scheduled for a June release and can be preordered now at Hasbro Pulse (US only) and the UK specialist retailers.
There is a 5th figure still to unveil in the line. This is most likely going to be the standard release of Snake Eyes, but we await confirmation.

About Me : As a child of the 70's and 80's 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 licences - 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...
