The Power of Packaging: Python Patrol Stun
The Stun never really resonated with me, even as a kid. I just couldn’t get into its look, and was bummed that it seemed to become the de facto Cobra fast attack vehicle in the Sunbow cartoon in place of the Stinger. Of course, the toon had to maintain a link to the product that was new on toy shelves, so I ain’t mad at ’em.
The painting itself looks to be adapted from the 1986 original, down to the poses of the figures manning the vehicle. It makes me wonder if these repurposed vehicles’ box art was produced by painting over the original works. That would be a shame, if true.
