Yesterday, Hasbro started off their New York Toy Fair 2020 reveals with Transformers War for Cybertron Earthrise, but with the official start of the show, they have revealed a brand-new line! Coming in 2020 is the G.I. Joe Classified Series, a new 6-inch scale action figure line based on the classic G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero characters. However, characters will feature all-new designs that fit a more modern and realistic design. Today, with the announcement, Hasbro unveiled three figures via IGN, Snake Eyes, Scarlett and Roadblock!
Scarlett includes her classic crossbow and three knives, while Roadblock includes his heavy artillery blaster. Packaging art for Scarlett was illustrated by Phil Noto and Roadblock‘s art is illustrated by Mike Thompson and Ken Lashley. Both figures will be available to pre-order from Hasbro Pulse on February 22, 2020 at 4pm EST.
Also, revealed is a Deluxe Edtion Snake Eyes set which is available to pre-order now from Hasbro Pulse for $39.99 USD. The set includes Snake Eyes, 11 Accessories, Weapons Rack and a Collectible Art Print. Packaging art is illustrated by Tracie Ching and Miq Willmott. Orders for the figure are estimated to ship on April 1, 2020. The Deluxe Edition set is an Exclusive to Hasbro Pulse, but the Snake Eyes figure should be released alongside Scarlett and Roadblock in Wave 1.
