Hasbro celebrates G.I. Joe Day with reveals of Dreaknok Gnawgahyde, Night-Creeper, and Jinx

Hasbro has marked G.I. Joe day with plenty of reveals for upcoming Classified Series figures. After first revealing figures of Doc, Torch, and a Tiger Force 2-Pack of Roadblock and Tripwire, the team went on to share a second trio of releases.

Joining Torch for the Dreadnoks is a Deluxe release of Gnawgahyde who comes with his pets Porkbelly the Warthog and Yobbo the Macaque. You also get a large selection of weapons including bows and arrows, knives, machete, sniper case, and a removable hat.

The G.I. Joe Day reveals then moved to a pair of Ninja-themed figures - starting with Cobra Mercenary reinforcements with a new Night-Creeper release. The Night-Creeper is an army-build opportunity figure with two head options, back pack and Ninja weaponry. Facing off against the Night-Creeper is Agent Kim “Jinx” Arashikage who also comes with two heads - masked and unmasked - alternative hands, 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.

It's a Hard ’Nok Life! Last, but far from least. G.I. Joe Classified Series line loves to draw inspiration from the storied past of G.I. Joe lore and then tries to add to it. With the Classified Series debut of Dreadnok Gnawgahyde, Porkbelly, and Yobbo, the mercenary poacher comes with not 1, but 2 pets – a warthog and macaque. This 6-inch-scale Gnawgahyde figure comes packed with 16 accessories including bow, quiver, arrow, 2 knives, machete with wrist attachment, slouch hat, sniper case, and weapon accessory. His constant companions help him decimate the herds of all the endangered species and cause general mayhem.

Enter the Ninja! Cobra has to open its purse strings and hire some mercenary forces to combat these latest Joe recruits. Joining the Ninja ranks of the Cobra forces are the Night-Creeper troops. This 6-inch scale G.I. Joe Classified Series Night-Creeper is bursting with 10 character-inspired accessories including alternate head, alternate knifehand and shuriken-wielding hands, 2 swords, 2 daggers, crossbow, bolt, and quiver. Troop-build multiple Night-Creeper figures customized with their amazing accessories to pit waves of Ninjas against your Joe forces.

G.I. Joe has a ninja or two of their own to combat the mercenary legions of Cobra Night-Creepers. New to the G.I. Joe Classified Series line is Ninja Intelligence Agent Kim “Jinx” Arashikage. This Jinx figure contains 7 character-inspired accessory pieces including alternate masked head, alternate hands, katana, scabbard, naginata spear, and blindfold to recreate her iconic training scene from G.I. Joe: The Movie.

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...
