Cobra Night Raft (2014)
Wrapping up the SDCC version of the Danger at the Docks set, here’s the Cobra Night Raft. If you’re a vintage 80s Joe fan, you’ll remember this vehicle as famously featuring Firefly on its packaging. I don’t think there’s a more iconic pairing of figure and vehicle from the era.
Here, the raft is matched up with the Cobra Eel. The two go together well, particularly since both are done up in dark colors. It’s truly a night ops raft, moreso than the blue version included in the more common version of the set.
The detail in the sculpt is amazing, another testament to the quality of design and build of the original toys. It’s beyond impressive that something designed over three decades ago can still hold up in a package alongside super detailed and articulated new figures.
The coolest bonus of the set is the weapons crate, an instant arsenal of weapons an accessories that run the gamut from rifles to blades. Amazingly, they will all fit inside the crate. It’s like the old battlefield accessories on steroids. Very cool stuff.
