The G.I, Joe team is further enhanced with the release of Carl 'Doc' Greer, complete with a stretcher and flare gun The Dreadnoks are rounded out by the upcoming release of Torch with his flameflower, fuel tank backpack, and weapons.

These are all digital render preview images presently and there is no detail over their pre-order or delivery dates at this stage. You can keep track of these and all the G.I. Joe Classified Series Hasbro releases at our extensive Collector Database.

Welcome to the Jungle! Sometimes a G.I. Joe Special Mission requires a special team of operatives. For secret and highly dangerous missions in remote jungle settings, the G.I. Joe team calls upon Tiger Force Roadblock and Tripwire with his minesweeping robot M.A.C.L.E.O.D. This 6-inch scale G.I. Joe Classified Series Roadblock figure comes packed with 9 character-inspired accessories including backpack, ammo belt, helmet, tripod, and is finally paired with his signature weapon accessory. The 6-inch scale Tripwire figure contains 8 character-inspired accessories including helmet, minesweeper, backpack,2 land mines, weapon accessory, and M.A.C.L.E.O.D. (Mobile Armored Control Lever for Explosive Ordnance Disposal) with remote control. All are decked out in their tiger-striped camouflage to disappear into the verdant jungle.

What’s Up, Doc? Key to the longevity of the G.I. Joe franchise has been embracing the diversity of characters and roles of our Real American Hero. In keeping with that, Hasbro is proud to introduce into the Classified Series line beloved and fan-favorite Carl “Doc” Greer. This 6-inch scale-scale Doc figure comes packed with a full first aid kit: 11 character-inspired accessories including foldable stretcher that attaches to the figure’s back, alternate gloved hands, medical bag, removable pouches and holster, helmet, and his iconic green-tinted glasses. Doc is ready to patch up his fellow Joes and get them back into the field.

Burning Down the House! What’s a hero without a competent (or in this case incompetent) villain? Completing a classic trio of stooges for your G.I. Joe Classified Series collection is Dreadnok Torch. This 6-inch scale Torch figure comes packed with 8 character-inspired accessories including flamethrower, fuel tank backpack, connecting hose, 2 weapon accessories, and multiple flame effects. Pop open a grape soda, throw on a Cold Slither album, and ready your fire extinguisher for the Dreadnok Torch figure.

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...
