Hasbro had its first Fan First Friday for its GI Joe Classified line and while some of the thunder was stolen thanks to some leaks, there was still plenty to be excited about with today’s reveals.
I really dig Gung-Ho. He’s instantly recognizable to me as the Joe’s original Marine. No shirt running around so everyone can see his Marine tattoo, hat, handlebar mustache and vest. I enjoyed the Valor vs. Venom line, but that take on GH always bothered me. And Gung-Ho would 100% be a guy running around in 2020 with a mohawk.
There was a snafu with The NTWRK app so now collectors can get the light colored costume and the darker blue attire. The light blue attire is available now for pre-order on Hasbro Pulse through July 30.

Cobra Red Ninja
This is amazingly gaudy and ridiculous. The cape and the flaming money set it over the top.
You can pre-order Profit Director Destro from Entertainment Earth.
The one surprise that wasn’t leaked is the Arctic Mission Storm Shadow. This is a call back to the Ninja Force era Storm Shadow. Tommy always had cool attires in the line and this third costume was another well done look. I like the update here and the Hasbro team did say that at some point the classic looks will be made in this scale, but I have zero patience and don’t mind getting variants of Joes.
Pre-order Arctic Mission Storm Shadow from Amazon.
