G.I.Joe Classified - SCARLETT (v2)!

G.I.Joe Classified #05 - Shana "Scarlett" O'Hara (Version 2.0) - Hasbro 2021

This new wave of repainted G.I.Joe Classified figures was going to be an easy pass for me. I'm not a big fan of redecos in general, especially when it's such a minimal change. But then I randomly stopped in Walgreens for a drink when I saw this Scarlett and couldn't resist. There's something subtle about the paint apps that looks good. Her hair and skin are a touch darker, her gray parts are now black, and copper parts are brown. While not a particularly exciting change, it's noticeable. Plus I eventually want super cartoon versions, so I can rationalize that supporting these repaints will get me closer to that reality. Scarlett is pretty special to me because she was one of the first female military characters I was ever exposed to (after Hot Lips Houlihan). My father was in the military and I spent many Summers on Army bases. And from my perspective the military was a total boy's club. Seeing Scarlett kick Cobra's butt and challenge her teammates was powerful. Let's check out Scarlett v2 below!

I won't get into much detail with this review at all since I reviewed her first version just this past Summer.

Scarlett comes with her signature crossbow and three daggers.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here is Scarlett with her original version.
All the navy/gray portions are now black. The copper portions are now brown. Her gray pants are now tan. The colorful details on her boots and gloves are now brown. And her hair and skin tone is several shades darker.

  1. I think I like the color on the original sans the coppertone thing going on on a few parts. I still like some of the color changes. Overall a nice looking figure. They're shorter than I thought. Good review.
