Cobra Shock Trooper (2011)

Cobra Shock Trooper (2011)

Accessories were absolutely insane during the Pursuit of Cobra line. I can’t recall getting as many interesting pieces of kit per figure since the multi-part figures of 1990. The Shock Trooper is all about options. There are different ways to display him in terms of both his defensive and offensive accoutrements. There’s a three part …

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 …

Cobra Commander (2011)

Cobra Commander (2011)

Throughout his history, Cobra Commander has been a man unafraid to bring a little style into the world conquering game. From his debut in 1982, he was outfitted in a nicely tailored uniform, complete with a snappy, single-breasted waistcoat, cleanly lined epaulets, matching lapel and belt insignia, and spats (yes, spats!) Oh yeah, and if …

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 …

Jungle Assault Jungle Viper

Jungle Viper

by KansasBrawler 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 strictly …

Beachhead (Pursuit of Cobra)

Beachhead (PoC)

by KansasBrawler 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 …

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 …

Recondo (2010)

Recondo (2010)

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 …

Field Report Friday: Shadow Tracker

Shadow Tracker

by KansasBrawler 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 …

Conrad “Duke” Hauser (2011)

Duke (2011)

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. Other than the chest armor, …
