Hasbro gave G.I. Joe fans something else to celebrate with the reveal of their new line of G.I. Joe collector's figures G.I. Joe Classified, and they hit the ground running with their impressive Snake Eyes (Hasbro Pulse), Scarlett (Amazon), and Roadblock (Amazon) figures. Fans were excited to see the Marvel Legends style of articulation and detail applied to the iconic franchise, but now things are getting even better with the newest addition to the line, which we can exclusively reveal is the G.I. Joe squad's leader Duke. As you can see in the image below, Duke has never looked better, but we've also got a peek at the slick poster that fans who attend Toy Fair's Hasbro presentation will receive.
The G.I. Joe Classified Series Duke figure will feature a classic design with some modern touches, and of course, he's equipped with some heavy-duty weaponry, including his trademark blaster rifle. He will also come with a pistol, binoculars, and a backpack, and you can check out Duke out of the box and in the packaging in the images below.
In addition to the Duke reveal, we can also show you the fantastic poster that fans will receive at Toy Fair, though it doesn't just feature Duke. The poster features many of your favorite characters from the franchise, including Baroness, Destro, Snake Eyes, Scarlet, and Cobra Commander, and you can check out that below as well.
That custom artwork will be featured on the back of every figure in the Classified Series line and should give a good indicator of how the other characters will look when they are released. The art was created by artist Francesco Francavilla.
The official description for Duke's Classified Series figure can be found below, which will be available this June, and can be pre-ordered here at Amazon.
