Special thanks to @gi_shark for posting newly discovered head sculpts by way of Leo Law on Facebook! The Night Creeper and Gnawgahyde was recently announced during the Hasbro Pulse Con 2023 event. Gnawgahyde was also recently teased on the box reveal for the Metal Head deluxe figure as well! It looks like the Night Creeper will be getting two head sculpts and will most likely be a deluxe figure. In the lower right image, we can also see the head sculpt for Gnawgahyde! The middle image also shows the Ferret Scout helmet, which is the figure that will be coming with the Cobra Ferret vehicle.
The obvious tease was on the front of the package art, and it is in it’s bright blue mail away color as well! As you know, the Ferret and Scout Driver was a name only reveal at this year’s 2023 Pulsecon event, so I can’t wait to see if we are actually going to be the bright blue version in the line! It also looks like there is a unique Ferret driver standing next to the vehicle as well!
Gnawgahyde’s hat is also pictured below:
The original purple and maroon suit with gray and maroon camouflage pants. This suit includes a silver visor and breast plates. Night Creeper came with a black crossbow, a black kris sword, a black barbed sword, and a maroon backpack.
Here is a concept by the insanely talented @YoJoeARAH as this could very well be what we see for a Classified Series Night Creeper.
Thanks to the Full Force Podcast, It’s amazing that we get to see the new window display boxes for the GI Joe Classifies Series! So far, from London Comic Con 2023, we’ve seen teases of the Cobra Ferret and what we think is the Stinger Driver and Stinger.
Now that we have an image of the back of Metal-Head’s box, there is a very tiny image of a Dreadnok standing on an exploding train who is clad in a yellow and blue outfit, which can only mean one thing! Gnawgahyde’s cloths have a distinct look them and it’s great to see him teased on the Metal-Head’s box!
Gnawgahyde & Boar
Gnawgahyde was released in 1989 and this was right before the GI Joe line went completely off the rails in the 1990’s. It’s great to see another Dreadnok added to the line! Gnawgahyde came with a black rifle, a black bipod, a silver machete, a silver knife, a black bow, a black quiver, a tan hat, and a brown boar.
Here is a concept by, you guessed it, @yoJoeARHA and we will likely see a packout like the Croc Master, who also came with a pet.
According to gi_shark, this looks to be the lower legs of the forthcoming Airborne figure.
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.
