Enemy Jet Glider (Geewunner.com)

Enemy Jet Glider (Geewunner.com)

It’s time for another Geewunner.com custom build. Continuing with the brilliant brick builder’s 80s GI Joe homages, it’s the Enemy Jet Glider. The one-man Cobra attack glider, first made famous by Storm Shadow in Marvel issue #21, is always a fan favorite. It cuts a very familiar outline for 80s toy fans, and that shape …

Cobra Eel (1993)

Cobra Eel (1993)

Hasbro went redeco crazy with some of 1993’s Battle Corps figures. Call it the last gasps of a once fabulously successful toyline, or a cheap way to extend the line for another year, the fact remains that, repaints aside, the year’s output in terms of single carded figures was immense. With Battle Corps and a …

Arctic Threat Storm Shadow

Arctic Threat Storm Shadow

By KansasBrawler I have to credit Hasbro for their diabolical level of genius. It seems like every so often, they make a figure that I didn’t necessarily want because of its design but then they deck it out in a paint job that hits all my nostalgia buttons hard and I snap it up. A …

Enemy Fan Boat (Geewunner.com)

Enemy Fan Boat

Another custom brick creation by Geewunner, the Enemy Fan Boat gives an impressively accurate depiction of the Cobra Water Moccasin to Cobra’s Kre-O forces. This is another solid build, in terms of style, fun and function. First off, as a build, it’s quite substantial. There’s no worry of the vehicle coming apart, even with little …

Zartan (2006 Sigma 6)

Zartan (2006 Sigma 6)

Every time I dig out a Sigma 6 figure to cover here at the site, I’m amazed at the wonderfully fun aspects of almost all of the figures in the series. Loads of articulation, great functional accessories and a fresh unique style made for the best and most fun toys GI Joe had to offer …

Storm Shadow (2008)

Storm Shadow (2008)

Yes, there are a lot of versions of Storm Shadow. Maybe one day, I will have covered them all, before I call the blog quits. Most of the recent versions came from the 2007 with the 25th Anniversary line. As comic pack figures go, this one is somewhat interesting in terms of its look. Based …

Ice Viper (2014)

Ice Viper (2014)

Man, was my first impression of this figure ever wrong. I initially covered it quickly as part of a video review of the Battle Below Zero pack, and didn’t really put much thought into it at the time. I really regret that, as upon closer inspection, it’s a pretty amazing figure. For a modern driver …

Red Ninja Viper (2004)

Red Ninja Viper (2004)

Is there a more iconic GI Joe ninja figure than the original 1984 Storm Shadow? For me, the first one remains the favorite, for nostalgic reasons, as well as the perfect simplicity of the mold. The Red Ninja Viper, part of the Ninja Cobra Strike Team (that’s not a typo, by the way) was released …

Serpent Armor and Viper Commando

Serpent Armor

by KansasBrawler I have to say, with the wide variety of store exclusives in the Rise of Cobra line, it’s really hard for me to pin down a favorite one. While I still can’t quite do that, I can say that I think Target probably got the best ones. The mini-vehicle and figure sets were …

Iron Grenadier (2003)

Iron Grenadier (2003)

One of the more imposing Cobra figures released during the relaunched small Joe era, the revamped Iron Grenadier was an instant favorite with me. I didn’t have any attachment to the 80s version, as it was available first during the time I had dropped out of toy collecting. Maybe that’s the reason I accepted this …
