No, it’s not the code name for the Cobra barber. Instead it’s a trooper based upon another named Cobra agent. Razorclaw was an individual released during Valor vs. Venom, and as such, had been genetically modified by Dr. Mindbender.
Surprisingly, the man was given his own cadre of troops to lead, More >
The Bad Guys got in on the action in a big way in 1987. These are some seriously bodacious buckles, people. I suppose the villains are expected to be more ostentatious, but this year seems to eclipse them all in terms of style.
I would expect a yahoo like Raptor to go all out with theme imagery, More >
So if wearing one cool belt buckle is good, then wearing two must be even better. However, the Razor Trooper from 2004 apparently couldn’t make up his mind.

I found the design to be a bit chilling for a child’s toy, considering the exposed face and truly robotic looking body. Maybe I’m More >
What 80s or 90s kid doesn’t love a little ninja in their lives? There’s got to be some reason for the appeal of them, beyond the pop cultural soup from which their popularity sprang in the 1980s. Is it the mystery of their origins, or some interest in their abilities to blend in and silently move More >
