I find myself much more interested in this figure than many others of his time. Everything seems to come together. Maybe the original BAT design lends itself well to the highly detailed modern style, or the non-human characteristics just allow for the collector eye to be more forgiving than with More >
Cobra Commander with a cape? Fabulous, absolutely fabulous. Only the truly motivated world conquering megalomaniacs among us would dress up to this level of snickerdoodlery. The man was flashy enough with his double breasted fascist business suit with matching hood, but to add a cape, not to More >
Released as part of the first series of Built To Rule sets in 2003, the Cobra Moccasin is the only Cobra water vehicle in the BTR line.
The Moccasin partially shares a name with one of the most iconic Cobra water vehicles, the Cobra Water Moccasin from 1984. The primary mode is a More >
The Ferret is one of the 80s Joe vehicles that I don’t think I’ll ever get fed up with. Others from the same period, like the AWE Striker, have really worn out their welcome.

I’ve not felt like really army building any of the Kre-O Cobras until this fellow came along. An odd thing to say, considering that Hasbro’s beautifully simple brick homage to the Real American Hero era figures has already brought several iconic Cobra troop types, from the standard “blueshirt” More >
After almost three years of daily GI Joe blogging, I’ve decided that a format change is in order. While I’ve enjoyed traveling the breadth and depth of the brand, things have gotten a bit stale for me. I felt like I needed a more dynamic focus, and wanted to look at my favorite toy line from a new More >
1993 saw the continuation of the previous year’s DEF, albeit in a less obvious manner. Each of the second year Joe drug fighters and Cobra criminals were folded into the regular Battle Corps assortment, and given normal accessories in place of the previous Battle Flash weaponry.
