Thanks to chazthegru’s instagram page and to lacasadelosfrikis for posting these in hand images of the new GI Joe Classified Crimson Guard figure! He isn’t set to come out until March 2023, but as we know, distribution for these classified series figures has been all over the map! The fact that someone was able to get this figure in hand might be an indication that we may see him distributed sooner than expected! As a matter of fact people in Europe and Asia have had the Crimson Twins and Stalker for over a month now, and those weren’t set to come out until May 2023! Perhaps these are indicators that Hasbro was over estimating their ship dates due to the pandemic and perhaps the situation is improving! In any case, it is really cool to see this figure in hand!
From the images below, you can see what his package and pack out looks like, and also the shipper box contains the Crimson Guard’s code name : Betelgeuse!
More Photos from Francisco Javier Marcos Bolsa
It looks like Francisco Javier Marcos Bolsa posted more photos of the Crimson Guard after fans were asking for more so what do you do in this situation? You give people what they want! The Crimson Guard looks amazing standing next to Hooded Cobra Commander and I am sure is honored to serve! He also looks great along the B.A.T.
Here we can see the incredible packaging for the Crimson Guard #50! The artwork by Orlando Arocena is fantastic showing an army of Crimson Guards on the attack. And of course this will be one of the last few GI Joe Classified figures that still come with a clear plastic window for it’s packaging!
The Crimson Guard came out AMAZING!!! The helmet is really glossy and has just the right amount of sheen to it. A new design direction they implemented for the Crimson Guard was a black backpack, to set it apart and distinguish it from the figure. The accessories are module and one really surprising accessory they gave him was an officers sword that can plug into and stow on the backpack or his belt, which is a design decision they made mid sculpt. These will look fantastic right night to Tomax and Xamot so really looking forward to this figure!
These are super fun figures to army build! As you can see from the diorama images below, you are going to want to pick up a whole squad of these guys!
