Cobra Paratrooper (2008)


The DVD battle packs gave us some very popular characters that didn’t make the single-carded releases. Guys like Dusty and Alpine were welcome additions to the modern line, and their nostalgia factor was quite high with me, thanks to their original figures and memorable Sunbow appearances. The sets also produced more interesting accessories based on the cartoon series. In the

Cobra BAT (2008 DVD Battles)


The Battle Android Troopers’ first appearance in the GI Joe cartoon was at the same time amazing and disappointing to me.

Slaughter. At the time,

25th Anniversary Breaker


By KansasBrawler The 25th Anniversary comic packs did some pretty great things with a limited parts library. Considering how small Hasbro’s plans for the 25th Anniversary line originally were, they fleshed out the line with some quickly assembled comic packs. Unfortunately, not all those figures were winners and Breaker is unfortunately one of those early 25th Anniversary figures with so
