PiercingMetal Thoughts: This sounds like so much fun and as someone who prefers action figures to many other kinds of collectibles, I just love the idea of this special event. I’m a diehard “Star Wars” fan but only have a handful or so of their releases over the last few years and I was over the moon when the 6″ G.I. Joe Classifed Edition began making their appearance. I actually did a fun unboxing video for our YouTube Channel and have embedded it down below my editorial rumblings. Please watch that clip and be sure to subscribe to the channel as that will inspire me to do more with it. I’m going to be watching the news feeds from their reps to make sure all of you are kept in the loop as well. What do you think about this news? The readership is always encouraged to chime in on such things. See you again soon and stay safe out there.
