Just got charged for the Valkyries 2-pack from Pulse.   Guess that means they should be shipping soon, and probably some of the other Pulse exclusive stuff will start charging soon.

Picked up Classified Shipwreck and Bazooka today from Markville TRU.  May have to go back and get Torpedo.

My set should arrive tomorrow.

My email from FedEx said Friday, but knowing how they have worked in the past year for my deliveries I expect that to be pushed to next week.  Though I will be pleasantly surprised if it does show up on Friday.

Sorry that's not good enough.  Time to get on board and pick up as much new Classified as you can!!!!  Hahahaha.

Bazooka is fun, but Shipwreck and Torpedo are probably the two stellar figures from that wave.

Got my Valkyries yesterday.  Love 'em for the most part.


My only real gripes are the tan colours on the officer, some of the helmets not fitting well and the tight/poor range of motion on the core body.  None of which are deal breakers for me personally.


Otherwise I love them and they are great additions to the line and Cobra's troops.

Found the Arctic BAT at the new TRU Barrhaven location (Strandherd & Jockvale in the old Bed, Bath & Beyond store).

They had 3 left after I bought one. Lots of the newer wave stuff as well (Shipwreck wave, Scrap Iron, PP Crimson Guard, TF Dusty).

Nice to have a much closer option for me now.

they look pretty nice from what  I have seen here in Winnipeg. Just curious does anyone let their kids play with classified or is it a collector's line only? I'm just wondering as to how these hold up to actual play.

I have never had luck pre-ordering from Amazon, first my Artic Storm Shadow was delayed, and then after 2 weeks they simply canceled the order on me.  Now my Artic Bat has been delayed with no new estimate for shipping.  I am hoping I will eventually be able to pick one up at a Toysrus.

Got my invoice for the Trouble Bubble, but no shipping notification yet.  The female cobras were cool, and they fit in, but the trouble bubble will be a stand out!

I forgot to mention Amazon's mess with the Cobra Eel,  why have a super popular character be an exclusive.   I hate exclusives.

Dr. Mindbender is expected to arrive today from Pulse, and I just got my shipping notification regarding Snow Job.

The Trubble Bubble is amazing, and now that they have announced a Target Python patrol version, I am excited to pick that one up too.  Hopefully they come to Toysrus so we will have a local option to grab one or two.
