    If we are going into full-blown wants, here's my shortlist:
    • Lady Jaye
    • Barbecue
    • Wild Bill
    • Commando Snake Eyes
    • Shipwreck
    • Buzzer
    • B.A.T
    • Cobra Viper
    • Firefly
    • Old Snake (CC from The Transformers episode)

    I like the C.O.I.L (and will probably get it to support more Vehicles), I think its a fun idea, but I like to see some OG ARAH Vehicles for a higher price. In that category:
    • R.A.M
    • V.A.M.P
    • H.I.S.S Tank
    • S.N.A.K.E
    • Cobra Flight Pod
    • Pac Rats
    • Polar Bear
    • Haslab U.S.S Flag

    I still want some more Resolute designs. Rock n’ Roll is hands down one of the best redesigns ever.

    Spirit is awesome too...Can’t find the Shipwreck.

    If it’s modernized, then I might skip. But, there might be a happy medium — maybe a Shipwreck with a black vest that can be removed and has his blue shirt underneath. And maybe give him two removable hats — a sailors hat and a beanie — to achieve both looks.

    He needs a Covergirl. You know Hector was hitting it.

    I eagerly await Low-Light and Lifeline.

    Have to admit these are damn fine figures even though they are not straight up ARAH. Still need to pick up Duke and maybe Beachhead.

    I think it’ll probably be like this:
    Shipwreck (Naval Commando) - G.I. Joe Database

    Hell yea, neither of their designs need modernizing. Low Light would fit in as is and that joint that the Classified Joe figures have at the base of the neck would work wonders for it.

    After I get Beach Head and Snake Eyes, I'm pretty much set for needed Joes. Would take Flint/Shipwreck/Mainframe if really well done, but only if they look awesome. (and maybe Covergirl)

    However---I need Cobra. Lots of them. Especially Vipers. Grenadiers. Crimson anything.

    For both TF and G.I. Joe, I'm like 90/10 baddies/good guys.

    Ugh. My short list is filled with disappointment as I’m sure they are way down the list.

    Shockwave
    Muskrat
    Fastdraw
    Repeater
    Chuckles
    Tunnelrat
    Firefly
    Bazooka
    Copperhead
    Dusty

    I guess my list isn’t all that short.

    YES. Cobra and the Iron Grenadiers had better wares than the Joes. Cobra made generic look awesome.

    I think a Crimson Guard Immortal is in 1 of the game screengrabs, but if so, that’s not for me. Need the original all the way. Plus the Crimson Guards, Fred and Tomax/Xamot.
    Needs a Hawaiian shirt and that bomb he threw in the movie

    I found 5 Cobra Troopers at Target today and picked one up (also saw a couple Beachheads, but skipped him. Dunno, those all-green weapons don't look great). I also decided to pick up Duke last week while looking for Snake Eyes, who is great though the backpack seems kinda out of place on the modernized design.

    But man, this Cobra Trooper. You give me a grunt with a good batch of weapons and accessories, as well as storage for all of those accessories (he doesn't even need to be holding a gun!), and I'm gonna be real happy. It also helps that the sculpt and articulation are great all around too.

    After seeing the Cobra Trooper, I'd love to see them take a crack at a Range Viper...

    Vehicles I need(that are practical/doable)
    Cobra CLAW
    Trouble Bubble
    Falcon Glider
    Sky Hawk
    SHARK
    Cobra Fang

    If the smaller-scale vehicles did well, we'd have a decent chance at iconic larger vehicles like the Rattler, HISS, Awe Striker, and Dragonfly.

    I'd love a FLAGG as much as the next guy, but it would be the size of a frickin' sedan.

    I love wishlists! Beach Head was my number one since he is my favorite G.I. Joe so I'm happy to see he's getting made so soon just wish he wasn't a Target exclusive. All right onto the wish list...

    G.I. Joe:
    Sgt. Slaughter (my new No. 1 want)
    Agent Helix
    Flint
    Lady Jaye
    Deep Six
    Cover Girl
    Shipwreck
    Jinx
    Kamakura
    Cross Country
    Big Lob
    Bazooka
    Alpine

    Cobra:
    Serpentor
    Doctor Mindbender
    Zartan
    The rest of the Dreadnoks
    Scrap Iron
    B.A.T.
    Major Bludd
    Firefly
    Storm Shadow

    Transformers:
    Marissa Fairborn

    another want out of this line is alternate heads, I've been rewatching the cartoon and I'd love to see them include alternate unmasked heads for future masked characters like Barbecue for example.

    You will most likely want to pre-order the Action Force Sgt. Slaughter on BBTS, since he signed his likeness rights with Valaverse. I doubt G.I. Joe is going to be making him in Classified, unless the line continues until his likeness rights expire with Valaverse.

    Yep got Action Force Sgt Slaughter on preorder already! Him and Beach Head are my two favorite Joes so I had to get him, hopefully he scales decently.

    Those two will always be linked together to me because of the awesome issue 31 of the Marvel comic. Two great characters.
