During a Hasbro G.I. Joe livestream this morning, the team broke down how price points in the line will work this year. $24.99 remains the basic figure price point. Add $10 for more deluxe figures that need extra or larger accessories. Add another $10 for figures with “pets,” be they articulated animals or robots. Then at $10 more — $54.99 — come the two packs with a little more gear than two individual figures. The Hasbro March G.I. Joe reveals included at least one of each.
For the two-pack, a Pulse exclusive set of Valkyries, the Cobra female trooper division. These women wear versions of the classic blue Cobra army outfit, with interchangeable heads, blast effects, and lots of weapons. This pair will be Hasbro Pulse exclusive, as will a $34.99 deluxe figure of Snow Job, with alternate head, skis, snowshoes, ski poles, and more.
The $44.99 figure with a “pet” in this case is Scrap-Iron, though the pet is a missile-launching drone, with articulated treads and multiple blast effects. The blast effects for the larger missiles also work with smaller missile-firing characters like Bazooka. This set will sell everywhere Joes are sold.
