Cobra Viper (Sideshow Collectibles)
I had admired the Sideshow line from afar for a while before I picked up my first figure, the Cobra Sniper on clearance. Once I had that figure in hand it was all over for me. The quality and details were amazing! When I saw they were doing a Viper, I was in. This figure did not disappoint, many feel he is the transitional figure that took Sideshow Joes to a whole new level. The figure is laden with accessories and display options. Of note are the VM-STRIKER Ball Grenades and Magpul Masada Rifle.
If you were lucky enough to order the Exclusive from Sideshow you also get a rendition of former Sideshow product manger Matt Bischoff as the swap out unhelmeted head sculpt. My favorite features are the throwback Viper rifle and chrome face mask. If I had a complaint about the figure it is the among of time and patience it takes to lace up the M.O.L.E. straps on his vest and chest rig.
