I'm hoping to see NF Outback there... with Tunnel Rat, Falcon, and why not new character like Crazy Legs

So I managed to preorder 2 Range Vipers and a NF Big Ben, sweet!!!

Downside is that the estimated ship date in October!!!!  BOO!!!!

I'm sure they'll get out sooner than that though knowing how things have gone this past year.

I also did it on Walmart.ca (https://www.walmart.ca/search?q=classified%20series&c=10011&sort=Newest:DESC)

For 35.97$ each and free shipping, it's not a bad deal.

It's sad that we are now at a point where we think $36 is a good deal for a single figure, AND, that a single figure is expensive enough to qualify for free shipping.

I'm still undecided about R&R. He looks cool, but not my favorite character. These 6 inches figs take a lot of display space

I really wanted R&R in his green look, but I have to admit that this look is still pretty badass. 

Also I saw some customs someone did where Stalker, Grunt and a few others were done in mostly OG13 green and it really didn't look that good.  So maybe it was the right call to not go that route, for now, with Classified.  Maybe stick them in any possible future "retro" release.

nope, won't let me do it; doesn't want to accept anywhere outside the Canadian territory to ship to.

I mean, you can order on walmart.ca, get free shipping to deliver to my home. Then I ship it to you. You only need to cover shipping + Paypal fees.
