Toy News International has posted some very nice high res images of the upcoming 5th wave of Rise of COBRA single packs.  These figures look to be kicking off the “Pursuit of COBRA” theme, as they are broken up into Arctic Threat, City Strike, Desert Assault, and Jungle Battle sub teams.  A lot of these figures are using existing parts, and honestly, I was pretty “meh” about this wave when I first saw it…but man, it’s growing on me.  Duke, Snake Eyes, and Ripcord are especially kick ass.  Storm Shadow did nothing for me at first, but closer looks makes him a bit more interesting…he’s more than just a Paris Pursuit Snake Eyes repaint, and I find myself more curious to check him out than I thought I might be originally.  The line up is as follows:

  • Storm Shadow (Arctic Threat)
  • Duke (City Strike)
  • Snake Eyes (City Strike)
  • Desert-Viper (Desert Battle)
  • Ripcord (Jungle Assault)

The Resolute Snake Eyes is, of course, the star of the show, by far.  I really love Ripcord, too, though, and he works great as a desert version of him who fights alongside Duke at the beginning.  A pretty cool line up, especially after my feelings were so mixed initially.
