The Terror Drome has scored some nice high resolution pictures of the soon-to-be-released COBRA and G.I. Joe 5-Packs coming to a Toys “R” Us store near you. The COBRA one leaves me very cold, being pretty much a pack full of straight-reissue troop builders. The G.I. Joe pack, however, rocks my world. I’m not a fan of desert figures in the least, but the wealth of new characters, the very unique reuse of parts, and the impressive paint apps all come together to make one slick looking set. Dial Tone, Law, Footloose, and Repeater are all very cool additions to the growing cast of characters, even if two of them look somewhat out of place compared to their vintage look (and one of them even had an operation… :shifty: ).
I love the female Dial Tone concept, and this figure looks great. Footlose, I think, looks absolutely awesome, even in the desert colors. Ironically, Repeater is probably the closest to his vintage look uniform-wise, but apparently had a race change along the way. Oh, those Hasbro designers, how they love to drive the vintage purists crazy…
