January 28, 2023 UPDATE: Ninja Viper Spotted at Target
New hidden character Ninja Viper has been spotted on Target pegs! Again, following the tradition of repainted Storm Shadow, this time we get the teal colored one called Ninja Viper! This is one of my personal favorite variants and came from the mail-in offers “Terror on the Tundra” in 1992 and “Menace in the Wilderness” in 1993. Thanks to Daniel V Kucik for posting this image to Facebook!
UPDATE: 01/21/2023: Wave 5 In hand images!!
Thanks to our very own Toy Sorceress on Instagram, from her personal collection, we have our first in hand images of some the Wave 5 figures! We get to see our favorite Twinsies, Tomax and Xamot, as well as the Camo Cobra Trooper and Joe MP! These Camo Trooper look amazing, I am going to have to get an army of these!! The Crimosn Twins look like they stepped right out of the GI Joe Sunbow cartoon!! Love them!!
UPDATE: 01/19/2023: Wave 5 Secret Character Revealed!!
As you may aware, SUper7 has been known to release a secret figure with each Wave release. First it was Red Ninja, then Ninja Ku, and now we have the next Storm Shadow repaint in “Ninja Viper”! This is the teal version of Storm Shadow. These releases have been known to just show up in Target stores unannounced, but this time we got the jump on it as we noticed the character on the back of the cross sell of the newest Wave 5 figures! Ninja Viper is found on the card back cross sell on the bottom row next to Firefly and Raven! As soon as the listing hits Target, we will be sure to update you!

UPDATE:01/17/2023: Official Images Revealed!
Super7 has finally revealed the GI Joe ReAction Wave 5 figure assortment images, and they are off the charts! For starters, let’s take a gander at a group shot! Accordng to Super7’s website, “The fate of the world hangs in the balance as G.I. Joe carries on the struggle to defeat the forces of Cobra! From eye-catching heroes and devious villains to indispensable Greenshirts and a phalanx of Cobra Troopers, Super7 has all the G.I. Joe action figures you need!”
We love when Super7 posts photos as you can get a good idea of what the figures will actually look like versus just looking at a digital render. For example, the shots with Snake Eyes and Duke and Tamox with Xamot are fantastic!
All the figures are now on Super7’s website for order and official images are now available, see below!
Xamot is the mirror image twin of Tomax, with only his scar to distinguish him from his otherwise identical brother as they advance Cobra Commander’s devious plots! This 3.75” articulated G.I. Joe ReAction Figure of Xamot features the Crimson Guard commander in his Cobra uniform and comes with a laser-blaster accessory. You may have a hard time telling Tomax and Xamot apart, but once you add their G.I. Joe ReAction Figures to your collection you’ll have plenty of time to try to figure it out!
Tomax is the mirror image twin of Xamot, with only his brother’s scar to distinguish these otherwise identical brothers as they advance Cobra Commander’s devious plots! This 3.75” articulated G.I. Joe ReAction Figure of Xamot features the Crimson Guard commander in his Cobra uniform and comes with a laser-blaster accessory. You may have a hard time telling Tomax and Xamot apart, but once you add their G.I. Joe ReAction Figures to your collection you’ll have plenty of time to try to figure it out!
If you’re thinking you’ve never seen these blue Camouflage Infantry Cobra Troopers before, you would be correct! This 3.75” articulated G.I. Joe ReAction Figure of a Cobra Trooper in blue camo is a Super7 original colorway, and includes a blaster accessory. They may not blend into their surroundings, but they will definitely stand out in your collection!
Mutt & Junkyard
Mutt may have a better rapport with his canine trainees than with people, but his bark is worse than his bite! This 3.75” articulated G.I. Joe ReAction Figure of Mutt looks ready to bark out commands and comes with Junkyard figure and baton accessory. Any G.I. Joe collector that misses out on adding the G.I. Joe ReAction Figure of Mutt to their collection is bound to be howling mad!
Cobra Commander better watch out! Red Laser is out for revenge for his betrayal of the Red Shadows organization! This 3.75” articulated G.I. Joe ReAction Figure of Red Laser is inspired by the vintage European action figures and features a red uniform with skull and crossbones on the helmet as well as a hand laser-blaster accessory that fits in his backpack. This evil mastermind from the early days of G.I. Joe will stop at nothing to achieve his nefarious goals, but you won’t have to go to such extreme lengths to add this Red Laser ReAction Figure to their collection!
Forced against his will to fight Duke in Cobra’s Arena of Sport, Snake Eyes will need his quick thinking and even faster reflexes to thwart Cobra Commander’s diabolical plot! This 3.75” articulated G.I. Joe ReAction Figure of Snake Eyes is inspired by the “The Vines of Evil” episode of the G.I. Joe: The Revenge of Cobra animated miniseries and includes a soft goods net, glow-in-the-dark trident, ankle controller, and control stick accessories. This version of Snake Eyes has never been made before, so G.I. Joe fans will definitely want to add this unique ReAction Figure to their collection!
First time ever as an action figure! After being shot down together and begrudgingly cooperating with Slip-Stream to survive on Dr. Mindbender’s island, ace pilot Raven learns that Cobra considers her to be disposable and realizes that she’s been fighting for the wrong side! This 3.75” articulated G.I. Joe ReAction Figure of Raven is inspired by her appearance in the “In the Presence of Mine Enemies” episode of the G.I. Joe: Real American Heroes animated series and includes a laser-blaster accessory. She doesn’t need to flip sides again to fit right in with the rest of your G.I. Joe ReAction collection!
G.I. Joe MP Clean Shaven (Brown)
First time ever as an action figure! Someone has to be in charge of security on G.I. Joe bases! The 3.75” articulated G.I. Joe ReAction Figures of G.I. Joe Military Police comes with a blaster accessory. What better way to guarantee the security of your collection than with a platoon of G.I. Joe MP ReAction Figures!

I assume that the Cobra Trooper and the GI Joe MP maybe the army builders in this set, but we are not certain as of yet. In any case these new figures look amazing! As soon as we get additional images and preorder information, we will be sure to update you. In the meantime, check of the latest wave below:
According to Super7 Instagram account:
G.I. Joe ReAction Wave 5 includes more characters never made in action figure form before, like Raven, the G.I. Joe MP, and a Cobra Trooper in a Super7 original colorway! Duke and Snake Eyes from “The Vines of Evil” arc, Mutt & Junkyard, Xamot & Tomax, and Red Laser round out the rest of this wave, available next week on Super7.com!Super7 (@super7) • Instagram photos and videos
Cobra Camo Soldier Lazer Rifle v1 Pink
GI Joe has their own version of the Camo Soldier so could this be a similar deco figure using the Cobra Solider buck but in pink? Only time will tell!
Cobra Commander Red Lazer
Action Force was a toy line in Europe which evolved from an entirely local creation into a renamed import of G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero. We suspect that the Super7 ReAction figure will look more like the Laser Artillery Specialist that came out in 1983 as part of the Action Force line!
When Duke v2 came out of the vintage GI Joe line, we was decked out in a Tiger Force uniform! Could this be the beginning of the Tiger Force for the Super7 ReAction line? We could see a repaint of duke in these classics colors.
Junkyard & Mutt
This pair has already been released as part of Super7’s PSA Collection so this will most likely be a repaint in vintage deco and styling!
We are sure that another Snake Eyes figure is needed in the reaction line but which version could it be? Let’s bank on Snake Eyes version 3 that came out in 1989! This Snake Eyes would be a welcome addition as it would move away from the repaint that Super7 has done and give collectors a new sculpt to add to the shelf!
Tomax and Xamot
What a fantastic addition to the line! Could we see a mirrored styled two pack like the vintage figures? Highly unlikely as we will probably see single card versions of the these figures!
