AWE Striker

The AWE Striker has been around for a long time. Since 1985 in fact. It’s been repainted several times and is somewhat of a staple of the line. That said, I’ve never owned one until I saw this one at a good price. I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the box. The backdrop folds […]

Snow Job (Pursuit of Cobra)

  As much as I was impressed with the vintage Snow Job being an “Adventure on  a Blister Card,” the Pursuit of Cobra version of the arctic GI Joe amps it up a bit more. As with most of the line, he comes with pretty decent amount of a gear and is a good character […]

Low Light (Pursuit of Cobra)

  Low Light is one of those GI Joe characters I know light about, but is still cool enough to warrant buying. I tend to lean more towards the realistic characters, and every Special Forces and SWAT team has a sniper right? I’m sorry, according to his card he’s a “Night Spotter.” Apparently, night spotters […]

Beachhead (Pursuit of Cobra)

I’ve actually seen Beachhead turn up in few different places lately. Continuing the trend of masked characters I couldn’t resist picking him up. I debated, though, since at first glance his blister seems a little less full than my normal GI Joe purchases. Beachhead is an Army Ranger character for the Joes and in general […]

Jungle Viper

Jungle Viper. The concept seems simple enough. A Cobra troop outfitted to be effective in a jungle environment. To me, this brings to mind a dude with dark camo and some lightweight armament, maybe a machete or rope. I’d even throw a lion in there. What we got, however, wasn’t that. In the package, I […]

Dusty (Pursuit of Cobra)

Dusty is one of the GI Joe characters I always kind of liked but never owned. A bit snarky, he always seemed out of his element when you would see him in the comics or animated show. “Here’s our desert trooper in the arctic.” Since much of the worlds combat these days happens in arid […]

Cobra Shock Trooper

Cobra Shock Trooper

This figure embodies more of what I would have expected the main Cobra forces to look like in GI Joe: Rise of Cobra. Labeled as a “Shock Trooper,” this figure is part of the Urban range of figure in the Pursuit of Cobra line. I’m assuming teams of shock trooper would work in conjunction with […]
