WANTLIST - Hasbro SDCC 2024 G.I. Joe Classified Series: Cobra Commander (Once a Man) Figure


When I first started my action figure collection, I tried to keep it within the 3.75" realm because that's what scratched by nostalgic itch. I never got into the 12" figures from the original G.I. Joe line or any other franchise I collect. I do recall having a 12" Darth Vader when I was a kid... but I never really played with it since it was so much bigger than all the rest of my toys.

A few years ago, I got suckered into collecting from the Classified series of G.I. Joe from Hasbro. I don't open them for display or play with them, but I do enjoy looking at them through the plastic window of the packaging. And then Hasbro started doing their stupid no plastic packaging, and that upset me. I still purchased the figures I liked, but I wasn't 100% happy about not being able to see them.

But aside from that, I do collect the G.I. Joe Classified line; or at least the characters I like and can afford. While I like Serpentor, unfortunately is was just not in the budget. I was able to get Chuckles last year and have 0 regrets.

This brings me to the reason for this post. Recently, Hasbro announced that their San Diego Comic Con exclusive for the Classified line this year is going to the the Cobra Commander (Once a Man) Figure.

While I am not a fan of the Cobra-La aspect of the G.I. Joe animated movie, I did appreciate the movie nonetheless. It was definitely better than the 2009 Rise of Cobra live action movie.

When I first saw the promotion images of the Cobra Commander figure, the tug at my nostalgia bones hit and I feel that I need to include this in my collection.

For any of my readers who will be attending SDCC this year, if any of you would be willing to pick one of these figures up for me, I would greatly appreciate it. Of course I would pay for the shipping along with the cost of the figure. If you're willing and able, please send me a message so we can work-out the details.
