Possible Preorders

Back on November 29, 2023, there was a rumored Iron Grenadier BAT, Iron Grenadier, and Alpine figures coming to the GI Joe Classified Series line. The figures have been matched up to previously discovered code names, which matched up Elroy (Alpine), Judy (Iron Grenadier BAT, and Betty (Iron Grenadier), which matched up to named GI Joe Classified Series figures. We were successful at pulling up the listings for Alpine and the Iron Grenadier BAT but there is a catch. The listings are geofenced by zip code (see explanation on how to access the listings below). As Chaz stated in his Instagram post:

Alpine and Iron Grenadier BAT listings are showing up on the Walmart website.

Listings were posted by Mitch Long on Facebook. These codewords were previously matched by @thefullforcepodcast (Chris), who confirmed that this will be the next regular 4 figure wave as follows:

Alpine
Iron Grenadier BAT
Iron Grenadier
“BAM BAM” (yet to be revealed)

Look for these to be revealed during Yo Joe June, with preorders, and with an October/November release date!

Yo Joe!

Alpine(Codename: Elroy) on Walmart

We’ve located the GI Joe Classified Series Alpine listing on Walmart but the listings are geofenced by zip code. Geofencing allows businesses like Walmart to target specific geographic areas and deliver personalized, location-based content or offers to their target audience. This can help increase foot traffic to brick-and-mortar stores, drive online traffic to websites or mobile apps, and ultimately boost sales and conversions. To pull up the listing, we used the zip code 84123 and set your store to the Taylorsville Supercenter Store (see image on the left). We ran the same query again and now it is coming up as an error (see image on right).

Iron Grenadier BAT (Codename Judy) on Walmart

We ran the same query for the Iron Grenadier BAT listing on Walmart and it behaved the same way as Apine’s listing.

Iron Grenadier BAT and Viper

Donning the classic black, red, and gold paint app are two mainstay repaints and army builders for the GI Joe Classified Series! The Joe Team is treating the BAT and the Viper like Snake Eyes and repainting them every chance they get! With the Classified Series diving into the Iron Grenadiers faction, we are likely to see a repaint of the BAT in the classic Iron Grenadiers rank and file colors. The reds and gold are all in the right places and the faction logo looks amazing on the BAT’s chest plate. The gold paint apps are on point and bring out some of the detail that might get lost on an all black uniform. The Viper has the faction logo on the left shoulder and the pops of red bring the uniform to life.

Here is a short video showing off the details of the Iron Grenadiers BAT

Iron Grenadiers Super BAT

The Super BAT is a mashup of a BAT from the GI Joe Classified Series and the Masters of the Universe Revelation Trap Jaw figures which is a match made in heaven! Utilizing the entire Trap Jaw buck, this custom brings a flavor of the BAT would bring a smile to Destro’s face! Reusing the only the head of the GI Joe Classified Series BAT, the Trap Jaw figure, with its laser cannon, claw, and hook attachments is the perfect figure to provide a strong base for the Iron Grenadier’s Super BAT. With using the Trap Jaw figure, the Super BAT takes on more of a human looking feel to it while weaving in a nice robotic blend to the aesthetic of the figure.

Super-BAT-MOTU-Revelation-Trap-Jaw-GI-Joe-Classified-Series-Concept

The arm attachments go really well on the figure and I’ve always thought that Trap Jaw was the MOTU version of the BAT so it’s amazing to see this blend of figures and paint app!

Iron-Grenadiers-Super-BAT-GI-Joe-Classified-Series-Concept-4

The gold tones are in the right places and look amazing on the laser cannon, claw, and hook! The Iron Grenadiers symbol is in the perfect place and the red tones bring out the details in the left shoulder, wrist gauntlets and thigh pads.

The Iron Grenadiers represent the first of a new generation of private armies. When most men in that type of company tend to be satisfied by simply being paid for their services, Destro does one better by making them active participants for his growing arms business. Not content to be merely hired infantry, these men are encouraged to come up with devious ways to convince the clients that their sales and services are needed. If successful in the transaction, their commission is a percentage of gross sales.

Iron Grenadiers were first released carded as part of the 1988 series of A Real American Hero toys.

File Card Bio: The Iron Grenadiers are handpicked from Destro’s personal bodyguards. They are the spearhead of Destro’s incursions into new territory. The Iron Grenadiers, acting as agents, provocateurs, saboteurs or outright terrorists, impel an unsuspecting country towards chaos and turmoil, thereby creating new markets for Destro’s weapons where none existed before. Their pay is a percentage of gross sales.

“Imagine the slickest used car salesman you’ve ever met. Now imagine that he’s also the trickiest accountant in the world. Got that? Try to picture what he would be like if that guy was also a highly trained commando with expertise in explosives, small arms and hand-to-hand combat. Top it off with the fact that no other mercenary group in the world wants them because of their history of turning on their superiors. That’s what an Iron Grenadier is…”

Iron Grenadiers GI Joe Classified Series Concept

Stronox Customs has created a perfect GI Joe Classified Series scale Iron Grenadiers figure and this is likely what a figure would look like! I love the real chair that was used to hang the sword sheath from the belt and the overall aesthetic of the figure.

Alpine

A new name only reveal dropped at the GI Joe Classified Series panel during New York Comic Con 2023, and that was Alpine! Alpine has always been one of the classic Joes and the Roel nailed the render for his head sculpt! We don’t see many Joes with baseball caps and I am imagining that this hat could be removable. He is also rendered with a realistic rope across his chest, very similar to the Shipwreck was made in the Classified Series. The coloring on his is a little darker than the vintage figure but it’s a great look nonetheless! Below is an incredible custom render done by a very talented individual Roel Robles! If you want to check out more of his work, take a look at our Future GI Joe Classified Series Figure Concepts article.

We also have an incredible custom by YoJoeARAH of Alpine to give us a better idea of what the actual figure will look like.

Alpine is pictured with his classic gear and YoJoe ARAH did a great job capturing his likeness from his 1985 vintage figure.

Alpine has always been one of the classic Joes and the fun factor was all of climbing gear he came with. Alpine came with a tan mountain pack, a black GR8-88 grappling launch line, a black Barretta SMG-12 submachine gun, a black climbing axe, and two black grappling hooks connected by black string.

His bio reads’ “From the middle of the flat dusty Snake River Plain where Alpine was born he could see the mountains on the horizon in almost every direction like a physical barrier between him and the world he wanted. He took up mountain climbing during college and continued as a recreational climber during his brief tenure as an accountant for a large publishing firm. The G.I. Joe team gave Alpine the most hazardous of all conditions: With COBRA shooting at him! Graduated Ranger School, Fort Benning. Qualified Expert: M-16, M-14, M-60, M1911A1. The quote on his file card reads, “Every time Alpine scales a sheer cliff face piton by piton, overcoming granite and gravity with muscle and persistance, he is symbolically climbing out of the quagmire of his past. That’s why we send him up first on vertical assaults. He doesn’t take to being knocked down too easily.”

“Once a Man” Cobra Commander

Emily from the Hasbro GI Joe Team also name dropped the ” Once a Man” Cobra Commander. This is from the 1987 GI Joe the Movie, when Cobra Commander get’s transformed into a snake. Below we can see a custom concept by @roenin8180 • Instagram photos and videos where you can see the transformation.

Blowtorch

Blowtorch was part of the 1984 series and cartoon and featured a very unique armor sculpt with orange-red pads on chest, arms, legs, and feet. The colors are what attracted me (Michael) to this figure when I was kid and he was my all time favorite figure in the so of course I would selfishly love to see him make the Classified Series!

This custom concept comes from the talented YoJoeARAH customs and he captured what a Classified Series Blowtorch would like like perfectly! He has given him an updated flame thrower and tank design and added some red in order to differentiate various parts to his pack out! Integrating his yellow helmet, ace mask with hose, fuel-tank backpack with hole for cord, and his olive-green M-7 flamethrower with cord, this is exactly how I had pictured a Classified Series concept for this iconic figure.

Road Pig

Road Pig is yet another Dreadnock to continue the long line of Dreadnocks we have thus far. He has a chonky body so it will be cool to see the new buck they will use for this figure! The ranks of the Dreadnocks are really getting filled out and he will be another shirtless Cobra! Road Pig was originally released as part of the ARAH line in 1988. He came with a large hammer weapon, a wrist cross bow, a wrist guard and a backpack.

Here we can see an incredible custom by YoJoeARAH (@yojoearah), and they give us a great idea of what a Classified scale Road Pig might look like!

According to Road Pig (RAH) | Joepedia | Fandom:

Of all the Dreadnoks, Road Pig may be the most fearsome of them all. With his immense strength, violent temper and antisocial behavior, he should have been a natural member of that infamous group of bikers. Yet, he was considered as too obnoxious and smelling worse than the other Dreadnoks care to be. He should have of gotten the boot right from the get go but, like the outlaw gang that took him in before them, they found it hard to say no to him. To placate him, they had to put him in “probationary status”, making him the only member to have ever undergone this process. Right now, he’s so obnoxious that they would like to kick him out but they still have yet to figure out how.

Frag Viper

As a freebie for miscounting the GI Joe Classified Series preorders on the Leap Day 2024 FanStream, Emily said that Frag Viper will also be coming to line but that would be very far into the future.

Stronox Customs also created a Classified Series scale SAW Viper that is a nod to his vintage figure!

Again, Stronox knocked this one out of the park as he comes with his classic style machine gun and backpack!

Raptor

Raptor known as the Cobra Falconer, was released in 1987 and is a very cool character. Raptor was a yuppie tax consultant turned Cobra Falconry is a very unique figure and comes with a winged like soft goods cape and a pet falcon.

Here is an incredible custom by YoJoeARAH (@yojoearah) • Instagram photos and videos of Raptor to see what a Classified scale version might look like.

Nemesis Enforcer

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 Sunbow GI Joe The Movie Cartoon

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.

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.

Stronox chose to go in a cool direction with his custom with having green tentacles attached to his back.

Starduster

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

Leatherneck was released as a single carded figure in 1986 and the the Joe Team said he’ll have a “grizzled” look.
