It was just about a month ago when we helped announce a brand-new line of G.I. Joe action figures from Hasbro Toys when they revealed the 6″ Snake-Eyes, which was one of the most popular characters in this line. If you didn’t see that announcement, just click HERE to be brought up to speed. Now its time to see what the villains are up to with this reveal from the clandestine headquarters of Cobra Command.
The Press Release:
YO JOE! G.I. JOE explodes into a larger-than-life era with brand new 6-inch scale figures, evolving classic characters fans know and love into a highly articulated 6-inch scale with premium deco and details. The G.I. JOE Classified Series Cobra Commander Action Figure features a classic design updated to bring the iconic Cobra leader into the modern era. The figure comes ready for action, with multiple points of articulation making it highly poseable and accessories inspired by the character’s rich history, including his signature sword. The G.I. JOE Classified Series Cobra Commander collectible package will also make a mark on shelves, featuring display-worthy custom artwork from Dan Mumford.
For G.I. JOE fans new and old, the G.I. JOE Classified Series line of actions figures captures the pulse-pounding excitement of G.I. JOE in a 6-inch scale. The G.I.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: As I pointed out in my narrative about the Snake-Eyes action figure, I LOVED this G.I. Joe line when they were the size of the standard “Star Wars” action figures since there was a means to do some crossover play when I was a kid. Now, I used to also purchase the larger figures and wish that my old Bulletman and The Atomic Man were still in one piece along with the Super Joes that got destroyed over time by a far too hot attic space. Who knew. My hope is that Hasbro brings that line of figures back in this size with a sturdy construction. Now while I love the forces of good, when it came to the G.I. Joe comic and cartoon, I was all in for Cobra Command and as you will see by the photo from the 2018 New York Comic Con, I even know a few of them LOL. Sign me up for this action figure, and as I close this up I wonder what you readers think. Chime in down below in the comments section.
