Cobra Moray (2002)
Hey, wait a second, I hear you say. Didn’t you just cover this guy a couple months back? Yes, I did, but this is a recolor. That’s right, the Moray came in two flavors for 2002. The same thing happened for much of the first series of the relaunch, actually. While the other holds a place of distinction for me based on its design and quality paint apps, this one pleases the side of me that goes crazy for bold color. There’s a candy-like quality to the red molded plastic here. It’s almost like licorice. I’m a strange individual.
I also enjoy the fact that they didn’t skimp on the detail the second time around. Even the two-toned pants are still there. My only regret is that the trident and rifle weren’t molded in taffy red. The flippers were, however. Classy move. The whole thing sort of looks like a Cobra sport diver. Maybe this guy could stand in as a foe for a 3 & 3/4 inch Adventure Team, or even the Adventure People. Wait a minute, the Adventure People didn’t have bad guys. Well, they should have.
