The 3rd wave of general release GI Joe Classified 6 inch figures from Hasbro will bring us new figures of Zartan and the Cobra Infantry Trooper as was announced back at Hasbro Pulsecon. It has now been confirmed the wave will also include repacks of Scarlett #05 and Roadblock #01.
It is however interesting to see that while both figures retain their original numbering, these figures have some significant paint variances on the original Wave 1 releases.
The Wave 3 Scarlett (right) ha adjusted outfit colouring from grey to beige and in the promo image the face and hair look to be much improved.
Wave 3 Roadblock (above, right) has the gold removed from his knee pad and boots and the weaponry has got a darker look. Again the face decor looks to be improved, but that may simply be the promo shot.
The Wave 3 assortment is due around March 2021 according to Entertainment Earth. The case will be 6 figures in total and thankfully this breaks down to 2 x Zartan, 2 x Cobra Trooper and one each of Scarlett and Roadblock.

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...
