The Hasbro G.I. Joe Fan First live stream for April included the reveal for six new figures in the Classified Series. These are not open for pre-order as yet and were shown only as digital renders.
The existing Zartan and Storm Shadow figures will be repacked onto the Walmart exclusive Retro Cardbacksm while Target will see a tweak of Duke to his Tiger Force appearance and he will come with the Ram cycle.
General releases will include a Blue Ninja two-pack that features both male and female Ninjas, complete with additional masks. The Snake Eyes and Timber will be repacked in the Renegade colour scheme and with a paint job for Timber more in line with his original appearance
And the big news was the release of a G.I. Joe Classified series Sergeant Slaughter who has a removable hat, sunglasses and whistle.
These will most likely be 2023 releases, potentially Spring or Summer based on current lead times. More details and images will follow later this year when they open for their pre-orders.

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...
