So I got my new Droid yesterday…and I’m in love with it. It’s Friday. My boss bought coffee this morning. Could the day get any better?
Turns out, yes, yet it can. Thanks to The Terror Drome for passing along the word that ACToys forum member zartan扎坦 has posted some carded images of the upcoming second wave of Pursuit of Cobra single-packed figures, and of course, they’re freaking gorgeous. I love these toys.
Check out the mirrored images below.

So awesome! Question: anyone know why Zartan isn’t still occupying the Oval Office?
For some reason I thought that Destro was canceled, glad to see it’s still coming out (and with that ice auger to boot!) And the more I see of Dusty the more I like him. Great looking update.
And very cool looking card art. I’m not a MOC collector, but I’ll be putting some of these cards up on my wall.
ugh an action attack snake eyes. really!? havent they figured it out over the last 20 years? it fails every time they try it.
on the positive the packaging for this line is absolutely killer, the figures mostly look good, especially jungle viper. from what all indications are the price point is good. this looks like it will be a good line over all.
I really dig the new art, but think the character name is really covering too much. They should really consider moving the title, or using a much smaller font. I’d really like to see Hasbro release the card art into a book of some sort.
So awesome. I’m so happy. And yeah I agree. Not a MOC collector but I will have a MOC copy of every one of these.
Very nice modernization of the Joe card! Can’t wait to see the Low-Light wave. Kind of hope they give him a vintage card though.

Dude! What are you talking about? It’s not an action attack Snake Eyes, it’s a Tornado Kick Snake Eyes. Tornado Kick!
It’s like….this whole new thing man. Awesome!
Wonder if someone at Hasbro got a bonus for thinking that one up 😉
Doesn’t matter though, figure looks very cool.
I love you, Jungle Viper.
SE & Recondo are exceptional, the J-V is nice also. But doesn’t Zartan sort of resemble “Raptor”?
Zartan does indeed resemble Raptor, and I think that’s who I’ll use him as…Raptor ala Christos Gage. Someone much more spiritual and formidable than some accountant dressed as a bird, for sure.
These are soooo cool. I can’t wait, but I fear I’ll never see a Jungle Viper in the wilds of Target or TRU. These will just fly off the shelf, which isn’t a bad thing…unless you wanna army build them. heh.
So I’m really the only one that doesn’t like the new packaging? I mean, brushed steel logo, sideways text that covers up most of the individualized art, and even with a wider bubble the figure still looks all cramped up inside.
I guess I should never question the power of nostalgia.
Minus the bland logo colors, I thought ROC figure packaging was great looking with pretty much the same amount of individualized art shown as these plus there was enough space for the figure and all those bigass launchers too. The back left a lot to be desired though and these aren’t much better in that category either.
