Just remember guys, if they joints are stuck/stiff either give them a hot water bath, or use a heat gun/hair dryer to warm them up and slow move them until they move more freely.

Do we need to do this each time or just once?

If you mean for each figure, that depends on the figure.  Once you open the figure, if all the limbs/joints move freely then no worries.  However if something is sticking, or feels really tight, then yes I would do the heating it up trick to loosen the joints. 

Either way you should only have to do it once (the heating trick) and then it should be good going forward.  I haven't heard anyone say the joint got stuck again after heating.

You can also check out your local TRU if you have one.

My local one (Merivale TRU in Ottawa) had everything TF and PP when I was there two days ago.  Outback, Recondo, Bazooka, BATs, Vipers and Officers.  Considering how much it costs now to get things from Hasbro Pulse it works out to pretty much the same getting them at TRU's ridiculously marked up price.

Photos are now circulating of #66 which is a PP Crimson Guard (repaint of the CG of course).

I have to say it looks great, and pretty spot on to the original colour scheme.  I really love the box art.  It is just the same art used for the CG, but because it is plastic free the whole front showcases the art now, instead of just the corner and side.  I love it so much.  I still wish Hasbro would put out an art book for the Classified line, there are just so many great pieces of character art in the line.

TRU has the classified series on sale - $38.17 - still too much money, but better than the regular $45!
The PP Bat and Viper are also available for shipping.

Hadn't posted in this thread about recent sightings.

Found the Retro carded Destro at a bunch of local Walmarts a few weeks ago.  Managed to snag two for $19 "clearance" due to some mistake.

Then today at two local Walmarts I found the Retro carded Snake Eyes and Crimson Guard.  Picked up one of each.  Also both had a case worth (6 figures) of Dusty.

Classified Tiger Force Recondo is showing up on Toysrus.ca - crazy price of $44.99

https://www.toysrus.ca/en/G.I.-Joe-Classified-Series-Tiger-Force-Recondo-Action-Figure-55-Collectible-Toy--Accessories--Custom-Package-Art/845D8B3D.html

Yeah that entire wave showed up in store a couple weeks ago.  Not a lot of stock, maybe a case of each, but they sold out quick.  Looks like they are geting more stock.  It sucks that the TF/PP figures are exclusive to TRU because those prices they charge are ridiculous, but what can you do?  If you want those versions then you have to pay up, or try and find them elsewhere.

Thankfully it looks like Hasbro has learned their lesson from the Cobra Island fiasco.  No more original decos as exclusives.  Instead the variant is the exclusive and the regular look is regular retail.

Agreed - I have no interest in the Cobra Island Roadblock that is still sitting at discount prices.
