morphinomenally_emily :Hi friends! I’m still recovering from all the fun of SDCC, but wanted to let you all know that more Dr. Mindbenders will be dropping on @hasbropulse by the end of this week! I think they’re likely to have a one hour window of Pulse Premium members only and then open up to non-Premium members as well. I’ll try to post again when they’re up for sale!

The GI Joe Classified Series Dr Mindbender is revealed so check out the amazing box art, weapons and accessories, and the produced figure. UPDATE 5/08/22: Pre-orders begin to surface on Game Stop Canada’s website!
UPDATE: May 08,2022
Reports have been surfacing on social media and on online Canadian blogs (G.I. Joe Classified Series 6 inch discussion – Page 145 – ActionFigureNews.ca) that Dr. Mindbender has come up for Pre-Order on Game Stop Canada’s website at a retail price of $69.99 Canadian (about $54.14, although Canada is reported to have additional taxes on their products). Let’s hope this deluxe figure is not priced at $55 US, as that would be insane! The SKU number is reported to be 770520, but it does not come up when we search gamestop.ca. In any case, this is great news because it means that pre-orders in the U.S can not be far behind!
Thanks to the Full Force Podcast we have images of the forthcoming Deluxe GI Joe Joe Classified Series Dr. Mindbender figure. Revealed at the GI Joe 40th Anniversary Live Stream, it is great to see a produced version of this figure. He comes in a similar style box as the Snake Supreme Cobra Commander GI Joe Classified Series figure and I love how the weapons and accessories are laid out. It actually looks like Dr. Mindbender’s lab with little compartments to make his ultimate creation!
The box art is outstanding and pays homage to the creation of Serpentor. According to the GI Joe ARAH Wiki:
Serpentor is the product of a conspiracy within Cobra to create the perfect soldier. A cabal of Cobra scientists led by Dr. Mindbender and Destro raided just about every tomb to contain history’s greatest warriors. They scrounged every scrap of DNA they could that would serve as the genetic blueprint of this super soldier. Thanks to Mindbender’s genius, Serpentor is imbued with the memories and experience of these legendary men.GI Joe RAH Wiki
You can clearly see the box art is representing the creation of Serpentor and is one of the most unique boxes in the line thus far.
The actual figure of Dr. Mindbender looks amazing and he appears to come with a soft goods cape, his vintage style accessories, and parts used in the creation process of Serpentor!
