When images from the Pursuit of Cobra were first shown from JoeCon in 2009, while most folks raved about Shadow Tracker and Jungle-Viper, I was secretly drooling over the City Strike Firefly.  That freaky looking helmet, and futuristic design all really appealed to me and it was one of the figures I was most looking forward to.  As the months have gone on, my love for the figure has waned, but just a bit.
I’m not sure if it’s because I’m not quite as fond of the figure, or if all of the other Pursuit of Cobra figures just look so much more bad ass than they did even six months ago, but whatever the reason, Firefly hasn’t retained his “rock star” status, at least from preliminary pictures.  His vest makes him look a bit bulky, I’m not sure exactly what the detail is underneath the vest, and his sewn-in elbow pads are giving me some unfortunate flashbacks to the Rise of Cobra troopers.
But who knows…I don’t have the figure in hand yet, so I should try to reel in my early judgements at least somewhat.  It’s quite possible I’ll be surprised.  I still absolutely love that helmet, love his machine guns, love the suction cup backpack.  Ah, who am I kidding, everyone who reads this page knows I’ll probably gush about it anyway…
Regardless of all that, Gyre-Viper has supplied a healthy helping of Pursuit of Cobra Firefly pictures over at HissTank, and I’m mirroring a bunch below.  As some added bonuses we’ve also got some Resolute Firefly and Zartan thrown in for good measure.  The start of 2010 has been pretty slow from a product standpoint, but damn, once August hits, it’ll be like 2009 all over again.  Only this time the product is all going to be great.  At least from early glimpses…
