Wrapping up the Classified coverage was a piece that came towards the end of the livestream during the Q&A session. It was asked whether or not the Classified Retro carded offerings found at Walmart were legit or not. The G.I.Joe team confirmed that yes, all 4 are indeed real and will be offered during Walmart’s Collectors Con coming up. Lady Jaye, The Baroness, Destro & Gung Ho were quickly shown. Here’s a few quick/dirty screen grabs –


Next up, fans of Super7‘s ReAction G.I.Joe line were given a look at wave 3 of the line –

Included in wave 3 are:

  • Firefly
  • Cobra Commander (Dark Blue deco)
  • Baroness (Black deco)
  • Roadblock
  • Flint

Sorry that I didn’t grab too many more images, there really wasn’t much to see regarding this series outside of the initial flash.


Now, for my favorite part of the event, the G.I.Joe Retro offerings! We got to check out in-hand images of the upcoming Cobra Trooper and Officer, including their packaging and gear load out (Check out that JC Penny’s style bazooka homage!). Check it out –
