We shared details at the end of last year that GI Joe Classified 6 inch figures of Roadblock and Scarlet were being re-released with adjusted paint apps. Scarlett has the biggest update with a change to her base uniform from blue/grey to beige and the removal of the bright gold paint on the armour. Roadblock also has the gold colour of the armour stripped back, changes to the gloves and a darker finish to his weapon

It has now been confirmed that they will sit as part of a re-issue of Wave 1 which also includes paint updates to Duke. The main changes to Duke are in the leg armour pieces as well as some changes to his gloves. Again, the image below shows the Redeco figure on the left, with the original figure to the right.
Snake Eyes and Destro will still be packed in the case, but there are no significant changes to either of these figures.
This new assortment is being distributed now, and under the same codes and description as the original wave 1. While some companies like Big Bad Toy Store have recognised the change, others will see a mix of both versions being shipped out.

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...
