    If Hasbro made an Iron Grenadier Destro for the Classified line, would any of you buy it if it came with his Despoiler for $50?

    By the time happens, the price will be closer to $65, I bet.

    I'd buy that in a heartbeat. They could easily do that in an Ultimate Riders style subline for Classified. The only real question is how long will Hasbro wait to do an Ultimate Riders styled subline for Classified?

    Is be interested to see Classified IGs actually, given the likelihood of some level of reimagining. I was never that fussed about the v1, though I like the v2/spy troops redesign (minus all the cobra emblems).

    The Sigma 6 and POC ones were decent upgrades.

    Yep would buy - especially if Hasbro makes multiple variant Iron Grenadiers like we've seen in the 3 3/4 lines, the heavy gunners, and the different Grenadiers seen in the JoeCon exclusive set with the Oktober Guard.

    Really wish they'd have given us a 30th or POC Iron Grenedier in the classic black and red color palette. There's really only 2 vehicle figure combos I'd snatch up in a second for the classified line...Destro and his Despoiler and Zartan and his Chameleon

    I will but it has to be in the “classic” aesthetic. Tbh I’m going to cherry pick the new design Joes after wave 2.

    Of course Cobra Commander and Storm Shadow are a must for me - even if they are modernized.

    Anyone going to use the Fortnite "Firefly" as a real Firefly, that piece is near perfect, just needs the cobra insignia on the shoulder and backpack.

    I plan on having the Classified Firefly open up his throat with a combat knife when he gets released.

    This derpy looking fool.

    Well I've heard Storm Shadow looks awesome... I'm itching to see it. The Red Ninjas on the back of the Classified box look alright but I want Storm Shadow to look more unique. Hope it looks as awesome as I've heard.

    As I await my wave 1 order to ship, I am revisiting reviews of the wave 1 toys and I have to say, while I initially was most put off by Roadblock's gun, the more I look at it, the more I am not a fan of Scarlett's costume. I wish it was less "armored spandex" in design. I may be in the minority but I am a fan of the Renegades Scarlett design for the fact that she has a flak vest and pants(pockets are a wonderful thing).
