Firefly (2004 Cobra Strike Team – Urban Division)
What do you get the saboteur who has everything? How about a snazzy new outfit that goes with just about anything. Really, anything? If anything means Cobra blue, grey or black then yes.
Look at it this way: Firefly is an important guy in the Cobra hierarchy. Cobra Commander himself hired the man years ago to exact revenge on Snake-Eyes. It would stand to reason that he could come and go within the Cobra organization as he pleased, and could operate within its many subdivisions. Necessity would dictate that he have one outfit to fit in with the basic blueshirt troopers and Vipers, the Crimson Guard, and even the Shadow Guard. Nobody wants to have to bring three changes of clothes for every mission.
I figure Firefly stopped off at the Cobra temple’s automated warddrobe device and did a little picking and choosing of colors, combined with his favorite grey camo pattern and viola–a new set of togs that would be sure to turn heads on the battlefield.
Seeing Firefly in an urban assault themed multi-pack isn’t much of a stretch, considering his original look was really the first example of urban camouflage in the Real American Hero line. While his color scheme doesn’t totally match the other figures in the set, there is at least some kind of tie-in with the blue and black present on the other figures.
