Walmart Collector Con is coming up on October 6, 2022, 10AM EST, 7AM PST and will most likely feature the last wave of GI Joe Classified Retro figures going up for preorder, which includes the Retro Snake Eyes and Retro Crimson Guard, which were revealed at this year’s San Diego Comic Con. 2022. We will keep you updated and provide links to this wave once it goes up for preorder!
Just like the previous wave of Gung Ho, Destro, Baroness and Lady Jaye, these two figured will feature the same oversized retro GI Joe card featuring the Joe burst explosion, retro waves cross sell on the back and vintage style file cards. The Snake Eyes figure looks to be a reuse of some parts, Stalker’s body and V1 Snake Eye’s head. While the Crimson Guard is simply a repaint of the recently released Crimson Guard.
Retro Cardback Crimson Guard
In a surprise reveal, the Crimson Guard will be coming to the GI Joe Classified Series Retro Cardback line! This was shocking becuase we still have not received the standard figure in hand yet and the figure already looked retro inspired to begin with.
The stand version of the Crimson Guard came out AMAZING!!! 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.
