My previous Classified G.I. Joe list is halfway done and now I can focus my wants on another set of figures that I would like. G.I Joe Classified has been a runaway hit with me and many other collectors. While the line started as a contemporary imaging of the 1980s and 1990s action figures, it is slowly emulating the designs of the earlier figures ever more. I would rather more difference between lines, but I’ll still support the hobby. Because of gas prices and inflation, I am pickier about which figures I get and have stopped collecting lines like Marvel Legends, Transformers, and Star Wars to focus mainly on my favourite, G.I. Joe Classified. However, I will not purchase repaints or new versions of figure, unless they are exceptional, like the new all-white Storm Shadow.

Like in my first wish list, there will be twelve Joes and ten Cobras, followed by more figures that should be good to have one day. Most of my initial Cobra list has been done which leaves room for more good stuff to be added. On the Joe side, I have many more favourite still missing in action.
