    I’m aware, I’m on the list, just frustrated with the whole situation.

    Found Bludd today. First CI figure I ever saw in the wild.

    Would Baroness still use the same DCPI?

    Weirdly I'm in the opposite boat.

    Timber is a great bonus to my favorite Snake Eyes design. Also helps that I didn't like the Wave 1 Snake Eyes.

    So here’s my story to my wife:

    Honey, you may not hear this well, but I need to run out and find a black-haired, Eastern European woman.

    Excuse me?

    Yeah, she’s known for wearing black, skin-tight leather and has a thin to athletic build. If it helps, she’s a bit mean and known for a domineering personality.

    Wait! You’re going out to have some kind of rendezvous with another woman who apparently is into S&M!?! WTF!!!

    Oh see….you might look at it like that because it sounds really, really bad. The truth is this is the GIJoe Classified Baroness action figure and I need to go find it because it’s rare and hard to find. Do you mind?

    <rolling eyes> Fine.

    See? You thought this was some thing. I was just going to go toy hunting. Me spending hours and hours on this search and $40 doesn’t seem so bad now, does it?

    What do we all honestly think? Is S7 really going to do an Ultimates Joe line? I'm conflicted here, while a real sunbow or arah inspired line would be cool, I have to assume that classified would eventually end up going down that rabbit hole as well.

    Anyway, I already have a ton of 3.75", now classified, mezco, and 6th scale 3zero? Sounds like a lot to collect already without throwing S7 into the mix.

    Curious to hear your guys thoughts.

    Welp. Apparently I spoke too soon. After taking my order around noon with three units in stock, I woke up to find an email saying "aaaaand it's gone".

    I didn’t really understand this so I looked up S7 Silverhawks to have a better reference. Based on that - I would be out. I’m not paying $55 for a single Joe no matter how neat it might be outside of a special deluxe-type (extra accessories and equipment) version of a character I love - Snake Eyes, Sci-fi, Flint, etc. And I won’t go to another scale. I love that Classified fits in seamlessly with Marvel Legends. I buy MCU figs more for GIJoe than ML.

    Just out of curiosity, what is the obsession with Bobby Vala and the Valaverse line?

    I was watching a video by Analog Toys where he was tearing apart Hasbro's YoJoeJune reveals and I burst out laughing when he was ranting that Hasbro is "ripping off Bobby Vala" when they gave Commando Snake Eyes the removable magazine and Roadblock's pistol is 1.5 effects compatible. It was the most bizarre thing and it was very confusing.

    I get it, a former Joe designer is making G.I. Joe agecent figures, its cool, hell, I have Sgt. Slaughter on PO, but I see some Joe fans on youtube praising the Valaverse line as the 2nd coming of Christ.

    I think it has to do with Valaverse offering up 6" figures before the Classified line was officially announced mainly. And with the first Classified figures there was obviously a lot of criticism over the weapons and decos first used. The only Valaverse I've got pre-ordered are the weapons packs and the Gung-ho set.
