My 2022 G.I Joe Classified Wishlist

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.
1. Scrap Iron
Cobra’s weapon engineer.
The communications and tech experts at Cobra.
Zartan’s expert camouflage and covert operation sibling.
The smart Dreadnok.
The stupid Dreadnok who sounds like Cobra Commander.
The grape cola drinking Dreadnok.
8. Snow Serpent
The ultra cool and competent artic troopers.
9. Wild Weasel
The badly poetic pilot of the Rattler.
10. Monkey Wrench
11. Big Boa
Cobra’s PT instructor and trainer.
My Joe list has changed a bit with Stalker, Cover Girl, Torpedo, and Lt. Falcon having been announced. Everything else that I wanted in 2020 still has not been announced.
The everyday infantryman.
The fearless commander of the G.I. Joe team.
The first G.I. Joe laser rifle trooper.
The computer geek. We all need a geek like Mainframe!
The bazooka artillery trooper.
The original (and mostly the only) mortar-handling soldier of the G.I. Joe team.
The Halo jumper parachute trooper.
The mine expert who is clumsy as hell!
The Hawaii wear secret agent.
Every one’s favourite medic. We saw how cool he would look in a bigger scale from Super7. Let’s hope we get him soon.
The cool flamethrower handler.
12. Grand Slam
The jetpack operator with a laser gun.
The ultra neon green laser riffle trooper.
The Mobat tank driver and a ranking officer.
The mountain trooper.
16. Mutt and Junkyard
The dog handler.
The pot-smoking and Zen infantryman.
18. Low Light
19. Quick Kick
The martial artist into movies.
The other SEAL expert.
