Jungle Assault Jungle Viper

For the longest time, there was one gaping hole in the Cobra ranks—a Viper who specialized in jungle warfare. A case could be made that the Range Viper filled that hole, but they really didn’t look the part. The Night Viper looked the part, but at the same time, its specialty was More >

I managed to find the first wave of Pursuit of Cobra figures all at one time, so I can’t really give Beachhead the distinction of the first Pursuit figure I purchased, but I do know that I was so taken by his new design that he was definitely the first one I opened up when I got More >

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 makes More >

Poor Pursuit of Cobra Recondo. Forever stuck staring at his boots. Well, at least he has a nifty mask to hide the shamed look on his face. By the way, what the heck is that thing, a disguise or an artifact he’s picked up during his missions? Whatever the case, it gives the figure an Adventure Team More >

I love seeing new characters in the Joe line. When I was growing up, I was always more excited to see new names listed on the back of the card than I was name of guys that I already had. For the most part, I liked my originals, so the newer version didn’t appeal to me (I mean, I More >

Now this is one heavily armed Duke. Brandishing something that looks more akin to Heavy Duty or Salvo, the Joe team’s top sergeant is loaded for bear. Interestingly enough, if you take the gargantuan plasma cannon system off, there’s not much of an indication that it’s intended for this figure. More >

Firefly (2010)

Going back again to the beginning of the Pursuit of Cobra line, I was very impressed that Hasbro was taking familiar characters in new design directions. Consider the original Firefly, one of the least fantastically attired and equipped Cobras of the 80s. As a saboteur, his look and his modus More >

Sometimes I think I’ve been a little too harsh on the modern styled GI Joe figures. I think I’ve alternately called them less playable, and even gone as far as calling them statues. Granted, in many cases, I still stick with those assessments. But there was a time, at the beginning of the Pursuit More >

Duke (2010)

Jungle Assault Duke (2010)

From the Predator series of GI Joe–I mean the Pursuit of Cobra, comes Jungle Assault Duke. It’s the sort of look that the team’s top sergeant hadn’t really sported before. I suppose the Tiger Force version was a jungle theme, at least in theory. I have to say that this Duke has most others beat in More >

Blowtorch (2011)

Blowtorch (2011)

Among the many cool things the Pursuit of Cobra line accomplished, it improved on a few figures released as part of the 25th anniversary assortments. Blowtorch really isn’t all that new, but he incorporates some small details that make the figure stand out from its previous version.
