Guide to GI Joe: Rise of Cobra Basic Figures

Confused as to what’s available for the new GI Joe: Rise of Cobra 3¾ line? Ya, me too. Since Hasbro hasn’t really issued any sort of guidelines, I decided to go out and try and figure it out on my own.

To start, it looks like they are stealing the age old format of Star Wars and having 2 ‘Collections.’ What’s the point of this? I imagine it is to help keep retailers happy, and have a bunch of different figures on the pegs while keeping different assortments heavy with key characters (Duke, Cobra Commander, Ripcord and so on).

Soooooooooooooooo, here is a listing of each Wave of figures (with pictures), all of which are due out by the end of the month.

Collection 1, Wave 1
-Baroness (Attack on the G.I. Joe Pit)
