Sagat (1993 Street Fighter II)

Victor "Don't Call Me Bob" Sagat

One of the most brutal fighters in Capcom’s Street Fighter video games also made an appearance in the GI Joe line as part of its Street Fighter offshoot. Who knew that he was also the star of the alarmingly saccharine¬†Full House and America’s Funniest Videos as well as being one of the most brutally foul-mouthed …

Cobra Driver (2008)

Cobra Driver

It’s been a while since I’ve dedicated a week to that most essential of vestments: the pant. Throughout the history of human civilization, covering one’s lower extremeties has been a necessity. And throughout that time, there has also been a need among humankind to dress to impress. From ancient times to the modern age, pants …

Zap (1983)

Zap (1983)

There’s a charm about the original thirteen Real American Hero GI Joe figures that transcends the differences between the early figures and later releases. Say what you will about the repeated parts and simple sculpts and paint schemes, but I still love the class of ’82-83. I find it hard to pick out a favorite …

Night Fox (2013)

Night Fox

I’ve become a Night Fox fan. Night Who? He’s a recent arrival on the scene, and thanks to the lack of truly detailed file cards or a presence in any media, he’s a bit of a blank slate. His original figure, a driver from the Pursuit of Cobra line, immediately became a favorite of mine …

Hannibal: Reborn (2006)

Hannibal

I just don’t get prime time television these days. To have a series based on a serial killer would have been unthinkable in the past. Maybe I’m just getting old, but I can’t get into Hannibal beyond his appearance in the original Silence of the Lambs film. Wait, what? Oh, sorry. Wrong Hannibal. Anyway, I …

Stalker (1989)

Stalker (1989)

I sit here tonight in the midst of a snow storm in May. More than a little odd for my corner of the world, and inspiring in a way. The last time I took photos in the snow was back in December. I figured I would tuck them away until the snowy season rolled around …

New Field Report: Darklon and Evader (1989)

Sand Scorpion (2004)

Sand Scorpion (2004)

Cobra has had a share of animal themed troops, but until Valor vs Venom, with its theme of recombinant DNA (courtesy of everyone’s favorite crazed dentist) the animal nature was in name only. Of the three distinct post-RAH figure lines, I found VvV to be the most compelling. The file card makes being a Sand …

Video Review: Battle Hornet (2004)

Another video review. This one was begging to be covered via video, since it’s so much goofy fun.

Destro (2006 Sigma 6)

Destro (Sigma 6)

Destro has always been a villain with a (shiny) head for totalitarian high fashion. Not that his sense of it is grounded at all in the real world, but you have to credit him with being bold. In the world of Sigma 6, bold is a good fit. The enemy weapons supplier dresses to impress …
