City Strike Firefly

Firefly (City Strike)

by KansasBrawler When the Pursuit of Cobra line was first revealed at Joe Con in 2009, I was stoked. First of all, I was getting the information first-hand at the panels. Usually I just had to read the after action reports from the various Joe sites out there. Secondly, what they were doing was a …

Resolute Flint

Rwsolute Flint

by KansasBrawler I find it kind of amusing that I’ve professed my Flint fandom a few times on this blog, yet I’ve never actually reviewed my favorite modern Flint from the Resolute box set. The Resolute set really showed how impressively customizable the new figure construction could be. Using a bare minimum of new parts, …

City Strike Destro

by KansasBrawler I’ve made no bones about my love of Destro. Any of you who have listened to the Second Anniversary Podcast know that. While the Iron Grenadier version remains my favorite, the Pursuit of Cobra City Strike Destro is a very close second. I like being able to use Destro on the battlefield and …

Retaliation Ninja Showdown Red Ninja

Red Ninja

by KansasBrawler Hi, my name is KansasBrawler…and I’m a Ninja Force fan. While I’ll admit that the figures had flaws, there were still some pretty good figures released under that banner, especially in the first year. Figures like the new Storm Shadow, Slice, Dice and Nunchuk are all great designs, have great colors and aren’t …

Tiger Force Flint (25th Anniversary)

Tiger Force Flint (25th Anniversary)

by KansasBrawler To this day, Flint has always been my favorite Joe character. I loved his portrayal in the cartoon as someone who was kind of cocky, but he clearly had the skills to back it up as soldier and as a leader. However, growing up, I was a little too young to have had …

Retaliation Joe Colton

Retaliation Joe Colton

by KansasBrawler Yipee-kai-yay, Mr. Falcon! Sometimes, a toy run surprises you. I called an audible on a trip where I was actually flying solo for a change and swung in to Toys ‘R’ Us even though I wasn’t really looking for anything. Imagine my surprise when, after all their post-Christmas reorganization, there was a fresh …

Kre-O Wolverine

Kre-O Wolverine

by KansasBrawler Even though I never had it as a kid (or even knew about since this was back in the days before the Internet), I’ve always thought the Wolverine was a pretty cool Joe vehicle. Hailing from 1983, the Wolverine had a very realistic military design, yet since it was an “armored missile vehicle”, …

Kre-O FANG and Trubble Bubble

FANG

by KansasBrawler Growing up, I always loved the small Joe and Cobra vehicles. As much as I loved opening my Thunderclap when I got it for Christmas and playing with it a lot in some pretty epic battles, vehicles like the Cobra Pogo and the Joe Locust saw a lot more play time just because …

Ultimate Storm Shadow

Ultimate Storm Shadow

by KansasBrawler Much like Ultimate Cobra Commander, I wasn’t 100% sure I needed an Ultimate Storm Shadow based on his original look. First of all, like Cobra Commander, that look kind of got done to death during the 25th Anniversary line. Secondly, I’ve always had a lot stronger attachment to his 1988 look. That is …

Low-Light (Pursuit of Cobra)

Low-Light (PoC)

by KansasBrawler It seems like one figure in every wave manages to completely blow the doors off the hinges and showcases just what Hasbro can really do and why the Joe line is still the best 3 ¾” (okay, closer to 4” or 4 ½” these days) action figure line currently on the shelves. What …
