Hasbro Pulse G.I. Joe Classified FanStream Recap


February 29, 2024

In case you didn’t know, Hasbro Pulse used the leap day for a G.I. Joe Classified FanStream.  Since knowing is half the battle, here is a complete recap on all of the new information revealed in during this online event.  Hasbro’s G.I. Joe team of Emily, Lemmy, and Tony were the hosts of this stream, and as usual they brought the heat.  Keeping with their usual FanStream format there were name only reveals, new renders, and eight new pre-orders.  Let’s dive right in…

Before getting to the name only reveals they took a moment to highlight the new Skybound Energon Universe comics including two new G.I. Joe comics.  In addition to the current series Void Rivals and Transformers they showed the new mini series for Duke and Cobra Commander as well as giving a mention to the continuation of Larry Hama’s G.I. Joe series.  For name only reveals they had two for us this episode:  S.A.W.-Viper (Semi Automatic Weapons) and Jack “Dial-Tone” Morelli.  These are in the works and renders will be revealed in the future.

Speaking of renders, it’s time to move onto the new ones revealed this episode.  The four new renders are:  a trio of retro releases: Beach Head, Cobra Eel, and Snow Serpent along with a new Cobra Ferret with Cobra Scout.  The team mentions they’ve been listening to fan requests with the addition of the new retro figures (Eels for everyone!) and reminded everyone that the retro carded releases are mainline, normal releases going forward and no longer exclusive to Wal-Mart.  The Cobra Ferret originally did not come with any figures so the addition of the female Cobra Scout is a cool new figure for the Classified line.  Be sure to check out the motocross helmet included with the Cobra Scout and the viper fangs on top if it – sweet!  Her vest is a secondary piece making it removable as well.  The fan favorite Cobra Ferret looks really nice and they noted that the render doesn’t fully capture the chunky size of the actual vehicle.  The figures from this group of renders will be available later this year for pre-order.

Next up was the new pre-orders – eight in total!  We have covered these throughout the day and I’ll drop links to each below:
