When Super7 announced these action figures on April Fool’s Day, we honestly thought they might be kidding. Especially since not every link on their own site works as well as it ought. But since other online retailers like our partners at Entertainment Earth have them up for preorder now, it seems they do exist. G.I. Joe meme action figures are now a thing. They’re based on a series of viral videos that redub the classic animated “knowing is half the battle” PSAs. Some in really bizarre ways.

Conspicuously missing is the more famous Porkchop Sandwiches Barbecue, but that may be because his is the most profane. It’s possible Hasbro wouldn’t license a version from a meme with heavy swear-word usage.

These Joes join Mattel’s Masters of the Universe Mo-Larr and Baby Skeletor from Robot Chicken as unique incorporations of third-party “remixes” into an official toy line. Super7 also previously made a Prince Adam figure inspired by the Four Non-Blondes meme, so this is becoming their thing.
