Quick Kick Digital Render
Until 2008, the only Quick Kick action figure to ever come out was part of the 1985 series of A Real American Hero toy line. He came with a small, dark silver backpack (round on bottom), a silver sword with round hilt, and silver nunchukus.

Airborne comes with a great loadout, including an SMG with a removable suppressor, very cool optics, and goggles, helmet.
His backpack also has a sculpted tactical shovel and a cool patch on his left arm.
Here is how he looks and they also said he has a darker skin tone, harkening back to his Navajo roots plus the greens are called rifle greens, which are the same color as the Dragonfly.
We saw a leaked image of Airborne in box so we expected to see him go up for preorder!
Airborne Official Images
Airborne Digital Render
Airborne is in his classic O-Ring color scheme. The optics can plug onto his helmet. He is really geared up with a layered look to his helmet and gear. Airborne will be released before the Dragonfly.. He is the G.I. Joe Team’s helicopter assault trooper and debuted in 1983. It’s super cool to finally see his digital render to envision what a Classified Series figure of Airborne would look like. His real name is Franklin E. Talltree, and his rank is that of sergeant E-5. Airborne was born in a Navajo Reservation in Arizona. His primary military specialty is an airborne infantryman, while as his secondary military specialty he is a helicopter gunship gunner.
They gave Big Boas extra head sculpt a “deadpan” look and he comes with extra fists that have blood on them. He also comes with 90 pound dumbells!
We also saw a leaked image of Big Boa in box so we expected to see him go up for preorder!

Big Boa is Cobra’s trainer. He has swappable heads. Finally, we can see what he looks like with his helmet off. He has his teeth knocked out, and a grizzled face. He comes with some weights and swappable hands. Big Boa was first released carded as part of the sixth series (1987). He was also sold in 1988 and was discontinued domestically in 1989. Big Boa came with a silver mouthpiece, two red flexsteel-mesh boxing gloves with white Cobra logos, a brown punching bag, and a black stand for the punching bag.
The Techno-Viper is coolest of them all! He comes with a projection of a numadic readout and his classics weapons.
He also comes with his numadic camera, a projection with readouts and the readouts have schematics! He also has his trusty camera, wrench, and pliers.
Here is a shot where the projection plugs into!

December 7, 2023: Name Only Reveals
The first of the Cobra-La figures, Nemesis Enforcer is an exciting addition to this rumored list! That means that we might be getting more Corba-La characters in the Classified Series line in the future!
The first of the GI Joe the Movie figures to be named for the Classified Series line, Nemesis Enforcer was part of the Cobra-La Faction.
Acoording to Nemesis Enforcer (RAH) | Joepedia | Fandom:
In G.I. Joe: The Movie he is the elite guard that protects Golobulus. He does not speak, but rather has a grunt & growls like a monstrous animal. He is a humanoid with large wings, capable of flight and large, extendable spikes on his forearms that are strong enough to pry open even the strongest doors.
He is first seen in a flash when he bursts up from under the ground to flip a GI Joe vehicle when the team pursues Cobra forces into Cobra-La. When the Joes are captured, Cobra Commander approaches the hulking monster, only to be ordered into custody himself by the Enforcer.
Nemesis Enforcer is later sent to the Joes compound to free Serpentor, who had been captured in the battle defending the Broadcast Energy Transmitter. After leading a small task force of Cobra-La guards and the Dreadnoks into the prison chamber. When the Dreadnoks’ weapons are unable to penetrate the dome covering Serpentor’s cell, the Enforcer pushes them all aside and easily pries open the two halves of the dome with his forearm spikes. He then deflects the lasers of Serpentor’s cage with one of his wings, allowing the emperor to escape.
He is seen in the final battle fighting against Sgt. Slaughter, who has a personal score to settle with the monster. He ultimately meets his doom at the hands of Sgt. Slaughter when he gets thrown into a spike walled pit, unable to fly out as Slaughter had broken one of his wings.Nemesis Enforcer (RAH) | Joepedia | Fandom
Here we have a 1/18 scale custom of Nemesis Enforcer by the incredible Stronox Custom Figures> Even though he is a smaller scale, this highly articulated custom gives us a great idea at what a Classified scale version of Nemesis Enforcer would look like.
Starduster is another fan favorite that we are happy to be added to this rumored list! As you recall, Star Duster was a mail away figure from the vintage ARAH line. Frequently shown with the Jump Jet pack, this is an easy one for the Hasbro Team to do as we recently got the Steel Corp 2 pack that used the Jump Packs. I could see Starduster being another deluxe figure release.
The vintage Starduster figure was first available as a mail-in exclusive figure from G.I. Joe Action Stars Cereal back in 1987. Then in 1988 Starduster was also available as a mail-in offer from Hasbro Direct. He appeared to have several variants until he was discontinued in 1991. He is a very sought after vintage figure and will make a great addition to the Classified Series line!
Here we can see an incredible custom by YoJoeARAH (@yojoearah), and they give us a great idea of what a Classified scale Starduster might look like! He would be an incredible addition to the line!
Leatherneck was released as a single carded figure in 1986 and the the Joe Team said he’ll have a “grizzled” look.
Here we can see an incredible custom by YoJoeARAH (@yojoearah), and they give us a great idea of what a Classified scale Leatherneck might look like! He would be an incredible addition to the line!
Zandar was released as a single carded figure in 1986 and it’s great to get Zandar in the line as he can join his brother and
Zarana needs her brother Zandar and here we can see an incredible custom by YoJoeARAH (@yojoearah), and they give us a great idea of what a Classified scale Zandar might look like! Who doesn’t need more dreadnocks?!
