Good morning! So the rush of the Golden Ticket pick up is over and we’ve had some time to digest some more information from the comic book.
Some random thoughts:
The original Corrosao was a Brazilian DeeJay repaint. He appears in the comic both looking like Tele-Viper AND looking like DeeJay. Which is it?
It definitely looks like the B.A.T. Rocket Glider 2 Pack are repaints from the old COBRA Jet Pack (last used as a Target exclusive from Rise of COBRA).
The pilots of the COBRA Sky Serpent looks like it might be a variation of the Laser Viper. Perhaps a Laser Viper Officer? You can see a slightly different colored Laser Viper in the pilot’s seat and jumping from the exploding Sky Serpent below.
The Vector Jet was up in question for a bit, based on the design of the jet in the comic, but more and more I’m suspecting that it might just be the Conquest, especially based on the uneven artwork elsewhere in the comic itself.
Below check out a bunch of other images from the comic. Big thanks as always to Phil from YoJoe and Chris from The Full Force for these great images!
Today I dip my toes into the pool outside of the standard Convention boxed set and cover the attendee exclusive figure-based items! This includes Cloudburst, Skymate, Air Raid, Free Fall, and the Heli-Vipers!
Ah, G.I. Joe and COBRA, they really loved their acronyms. It seemed like every other vehicle in the A Real American Hero line sported a cool name made up of other words. Well in that way the COBRA A.D.D.E.R.S. fit right in. The Aerial Deployment Daredevil Elite Recon Squadron is made up of some great characters and 90s troops, including my personal favorites – the Air Commandos.
Today I’m reviewing all five members of the COBRA A.D.D.E.R. team from the boxed set. You can check out the review at the G.I. Joe Collectors Club Review Page, or the link below. I also have done a video review which you can see embedded below.
Phil from YoJoe is KILLING IT today grabbing images from the Hasbro booth. Tons of pictures are streaming in, and they’re going up at the YoJoe Photo Gallery, while I’m also mirroring them below. These figures are looking great, and between Stiletto, Shooter, and Tombstone, I’m feeling like we’ve got some NEW BLOOD to play with here. Excellent!
