It seems June is being renamed as Yo Joe June, with a number of reveals and product launches planned by Hasbro in their G.I. Joe lines. The month kicked off with a Hasbro Fan Fest live stream which included four new reveals in the G.I. Joe Classified line.
We can look forward to another Roadblock figure, this version is the Heavy Artillery Roadblock and it will feature a new head sculpt with a removable helmet, an updated paint job and mini-gun weapon. He is an Amazon exclusive, with limited numbers available via Hasbro Pulse.
Snake Eyes is also getting a new figure, this time in a double pack with his wolf, Timber. The box set is the Alpha Commandos set and features an updated look to Snake Eyes vs the already released figures with a new head sculpt and adjustments to the outfit. He comes with two weapons and a knife. Timber will be fully articulated and also includes an alternative head. The figure will go up for pre-order at some stage in June at "selected retailers" indicating it is not an a exclusive set.
One figure that is exclusive is Barbeque, who will be released as part of the Target Cobra Island line. Barbeque will feature his flamethrower and axe.
The final reveal is the second vehicle in the line, with a G.I. Joe R.A.M. (Rapid Fire Motorcycle). The bike comes with the minigun sidecar as per the original, and to ride it we have a brand new figure of Breaker with a removable helmet. Breaker and R.A.M. are also part of the Target Cobra Island range.

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...
