I’ve become a Night Fox fan. Night Who? He’s a recent arrival on the scene, and thanks to the lack of truly detailed file cards or a presence in any media, he’s a bit of a blank slate. His original figure, a driver from the Pursuit of Cobra line, immediately became a favorite of mine among the More >
Snake Eyes has worn a lot of different outfits over the years, most being a variation of black on black on black. He’s also been a ninja equipped with blue weapons, a camo wearing Sigma 6 commando, an arctic commando, a color changing Shadow Ninja and more.
I imagine the training of a ninja More >
During the 25th anniversary series, there were many figures on fans’ want lists. The Defense of Cobra Island seven pack put a few of most wanted Cobra army builders in our hands. The original Alley Viper was one of them, and most of that mold continues to show up in modern versions of the popular More >
It’s too bad Hasbro doesn’t feel the need to include file cards with the Retaliation movie figures. An interesting looking new Cobra trooper, the Cyber Ninja I’m sure could have benefited from some sort of backstory.

Finally, we get an action figure version of one of the unproduced Sgt. Savage characters. I’ve been waiting seventeen years for a Mouse figure to display alongside the Sarge, D-Day and the others. I’m just so jazzed about this…wait, what? This is a character named Mouse from GI Joe: Retaliation? More >
What a difference a little paint and parts swapping can make. I wasn’t overly impressed with the Duke figure upon which this Flint is based. I suppose some of it was due to the color, and some the character. The prospect of more Channing Tatum Dukes on the pegs doesn’t fill me with More >
When movie action figure lines are released, they usually contain multiple versions of the main characters, usually each with a different action feature. I find it a bit strange that the first movie Firefly released is this one, but I can see the reasoning to get the more kid-friendly figure out More >
The action figure gods giveth. Case in point: a couple of days ago, I raved about the Snake Eyes figure from this same wave, and how it’s a well detailed and articulated figure with a fun action feature. The action figure gods also taketh away. Case in point: this Storm Shadow.
I swear I’ve seen More >
