Alley Viper (2004 Urban Division)
The Cobra Strike Team Urban Division was one of the more problematic of the Toys R Us multipacks. The illustrations of the characters on the front of the package did not match the contents, at least in terms of their uniform’s coloring. All were colorful and resembled some previous version of their figures. Alley Viper looked to be based on the yellow Battle Corps iteration.
That’s not to say I don’t care for the color scheme here. I like the Alley Viper done up in a more subdued set of tones. In fact, I went a little nuts with this pack, and bought several copies to build a nice squad of figures. The Alleys had to be refitted with weapons, as the pack contained the tiresome Tomax/Xamot laser pistols. On a positive note, the cool Cobra shield made the transition.
