    It reminds me of Star Wars Battlefront for some reason.

    I checked the Popfinder before and after I bought two Cobra Troopers. It did show two less troopers after I bought them. It is accurate from my experience.

    Looking at the publisher’s other games, “Overwatch with a Joe skin” might be setting sights too high, actually. :oops:

    2)Duke
    3)Scarlett
    4)Snake Eyes
    5)Roadblock

    I already want more Classified figures, I need more.

    I'm not entirely sure how Popfindr gets their information, but it does seem like they get live updates from the inventory system somehow. After I purchased my Beach Head I checked again out of curiosity and indeed the number at that store had gone down by one.

    As for new items showing up I would assume if it's getting live updates than it would update when the merch arrives at the store and is scanned in as being received during the unload. Typically this happens overnight/early morning but various factors can cause the unload to happen during the day as well. Also, some items are delivered to the store vua FedEx/UPS/USPS/etc and those get scanned in at whatever time of day they arrive. So merch updates would depend on what days your store gets trucks and when they unload them.

    Hope that helps a bit

    I wanted to get excited for the game but I have a Switch so I don't exist to 75% of publishers :/

    It does. Thanks so much. It’s also consistent with what the service reps have told me over the years.

    Same :-(

    I just found Cobra Island Roadblock at Target. Scanned just fine. They were in the middle of the refresh so they probably had more in the back but I was lazy.

    Kind of surprised there isn’t more talk around these Classified figures being actual video game designs. It definitely changes my perspective on where the brand is going.

    I saw a Rattler that I hope is flyable, but may just be either AI controlled or just a background asset. That's what made me think of Battlefront.

    I don’t think it’s staying video game. This thing launched as “GI Joe Classified Series” which people thought was heavily influenced by Fortnite. Now it seems pretty clear these were always video game figures from the start, rather than true reimaginings of the characters. Everything about the weapons and glowy blue screams video game, like a Transformers game.

    I am convinced now more than ever that we’re getting ARAH versions down the road. This isn’t a brand relaunch it’s a video game with a toy tie-in they can milk later with a nostalgia play and movie figures.
