I really like how shadows look on his mask and eyes in natural light.

I really hope that if that art isn't on the cover of the box, that its at least on the inside flap or something. That it waaaay to badass to just be used for conventions... honestly I'd be down for buying some high quality prints if they were available :rock

Khev
07-29-2008, 09:16 AM
Yeah at first I was thinkng they could have included the art as exclusive prints to display behind the characters (a la the AH! statues) but then realized they're much bigger than the boxes will allow. They *must* be available in some form, they're just too cool not to have. I like your idea of possibly making them availabe as separate purchases so they could stay the same size.

I can't believe a lot of you guys got to see these figures in person! They rest of us have to wait sooooo long....

I didn't ask because I just assumed it would be the box art.

I've got the Exc. on pre-order but I'm trying to move away from Exclusives and simply get the regular versions from my Canadian retailer to save $$$... How essential do you think the sword in the cane is?... It looks cool but I'm wavering on whether I should keep it or not...

The regular doesn't include the cane at all. IMO it is the essential defining accessory for the fig.

IrishJedi
07-30-2008, 10:52 AM
The trenchcoat is cool and all, but it's just not RAH Cobra Commander to me. It's that Tim Bradstreet/Devil's Due stuff, which I don't really care for personally. I would have much-preferred a removeable cape. I just hope this isn't an indication of how far away from the core RAH designs that SSC wants to go. Snake Eyes turned out perfectly. Coat aside, I'm in love with the Commander. But I now have some concerns.

If they do Storm Shadow with the white trenchcoat, emo hair and shades I will kill someone.

I see. I agree about sticking close to the RAH designs but I really like the look of that coat right now. And if they do that to Storm Shadow I won't be getting him.

IrishJedi
07-30-2008, 11:01 AM
Well, the cool thing about the Commander's coat is that it's removeable so everyone gets the choice to display with or without. And without the trenchcoat he looks very much like the classic RAH Cobra Commander. So as soon as I get him, that's coming off (or if it ships with the trenchcoat off, it'll never go on). And a cape would be pretty easy to customize as well.

I still hope they intend to make a Battle Cobra Commander with his mirror-visored helmet and lighter blue fatigues at some point.

I think it depends on what SSC puts into the line. If they do SE and CC then take 6 months to deliver them to people's hands and/or 6 months to offer another figure its going to lead to cancellations.

I'm sure there are people treating this line the way tomandshell is treating the LOTR line. "wait and see".

If SSC doesn't deliver timely on orders and offer hope via new orders how can they expect people to stay vested in the line emotionally and economically?

If I remember correctly with LOTR from the first figure Aragorn it took a long time for delivery and even the next preorder. IMO they practically gave it a fatal blow on day 1.

Most of their lines take 6 months to get in hand. The only line I think that was affected by the time it took to get in hand was 1/6th Terminators. It took almost a full year from order to delivery. That year gave several people time to cancel for other items or interests.

I don't think that will happen with GIJoe, there are just too many RAH and 12" fans.

Deeznutz6
07-30-2008, 07:56 PM
SS needs to learn from the mistakes they made with the LOTR line and this line will do tremedous, keep interest going, give us info once in a while, show what your working on.
Not once a year show a few figs at a convention and expect all the fans to come running back. Before SDCC the SW line was moving at a turtles pace, and interest was waning.

I think Sideshow will do a faceplate Cobra Commander in the near future that perhaps will be more reminescent of the Real American Hero figure.

That one could very well come with a cape and look more like the figure we know and love.

Obviously Sideshow is injecting some realism into these designs...I have no problem with it whatsoever.

I think that look would work well with a sort of African Military Warlord type of look. Military uniform, but blue of course, with all of those medals and shoulder pad thingies. Would still be similar to the original RAH looks, but also somewhat realistic as well.

Afterall, it starts to defeat the purpose. Just make a line of modern military figures like Hot Toys if that's all you're into. Let G.I. JOE be G.I. JOE, particularly since you're touting it as "Real American Hero".

They definately should not change the concept of the character. Thats a big no no. They just need to make sure they have accessories and stuff to turn a bland RAH costume into something more, but no concept changes.

And a Cobra-La snake face.:rolleyes:

I think keeping the Cobra Commander Exc. is a must. I cancelled my Exc. Snake-Eyes (didn't see me ever posing him with his punch knives) and now just have the regular on order from my Canadian supplier, but the pimp cane will definitely be used with the evil leader...

I don't see myself posing him with the punch dagger in hand too often either. That being said in a recent video SS mentioned that there a strings on the separated blade and sheath for wrapping it around his ankle. That I probably *will* display, one more pointy thing to hurt people with on his person is definitely a plus in my book. :)

You broke one of the oldest and most sacred rules of the pre-order. NEVER, and I mean NEVER cancel anything until you absolutely have to (ie 15 day notice time). You can NEVER accurately predict the future. It is best to order now and have to cancel later than not order (or cancel the order) and not be able to get the item when you do indeed have the money. I made a very poor choice once, as you did here.

Yep. CC doesn't ship until Q2 2009. You might not have to pay for this until *June* of next year. An incredible amount of time to come up with $100 for a purchase. I'd put yourself back on the wait list immediately if I were you.

Yes, actually..I think Devil's Due had some pics of a young Cobra Commander sans mask as part of their Snake-Eyes: Classified mini.

The original Hasbro run also had a later issue that showed Snake-Eyes unmasked, but it was kind of a dissapointment. Didn't really look like much of a bad burn victim as just a facial disfigurement by scar.

Yes, but Snake-Eyes was also referenced many times in the original Marvel series as wearing a rubber mask out in public. He later had his face reconstructed and destroyed at least twice more between the Marvel and Devil's Due comics. I know when DD picked up the GI Joe license, Snakes had a reconstructed face at that time.

Honestly nobody knows what Cobra Commander looks under the mask. I rather not know, much like not being able to see Dr. Claw's true identity in Inspector Gadget. The G.I.JOE 80's cartoon doesn't count. While entertaining, it was not CC.. I mean throw his hood you clearly can see human eyes and skin, yet in the movie he was clearly a lizard-snake man.

The movie revealed that Cobra Commander had been a "nobleman" of Cobra-La all along. He was never human. He originally was bald with white skin then in a lab accident got a faceful of spores that mutated his face. That's why he wore masks as Cobra Commander.

Then in the movie he was deemed unfit for leadership and found guilty of his numerous failures against GI Joe and was exposed to the concentrated spores that were supposed to infect the entire earth. It was *those* spores that turned him into a snake.

Honestly nobody knows what Cobra Commander looks under the mask. I rather not know, much like not being able to see Dr. Claw's true identity in Inspector Gadget. The G.I.JOE 80's cartoon doesn't count. While entertaining, it was not CC.. I mean throw his hood you clearly can see human eyes and skin, yet in the movie he was clearly a lizard-snake man.

Sorry Eli,

Thats right it was the spores thingy LOL, I was really disappointed in the outcome of the Commander as well, I mean watching almost all the cartoon episodes and all of sudden in this movie he gets kicked to the side so easily by this space ^^^^ cobra-la crap... I was not a fan..... annnnnd i think right after this turning point if when hasblow produced all this space age stuff with neon glowing figures...

Yep. I just watched the MASS Device miniseries in the new DVD pack that came out and 1983 CC is sporting the exact same cane on the show! He throws the cane at Destro at one point and bounces it off the back of his head. Destro turns around, grabs the serpent on top of the cane, and crushes it with his bare hand. :lol

That is what they SHOULD have done. They should have made an extra, special pistol for that figure. I think people would have been the most happy with that. The exclusive buyers would get a unique little pistol, something he only used a few times, but not some iconic prop like his serpent staff. The exclusive doesn't cost any more, yet it comes with more stuff, so people will always prefer to buy it.

He went up for sale on the weekend of the Comic Con to the non-attendees, I think either that Thursday evening or Friday around 10:00 a..m, it wasn't announced, they just told you that they were releasing on the web randomly Comic Con pieces, he quickly sold out...

I'm not too worried about the proetheus design, aside from possible concerns material durability or weak joints. The over articulation looks along the lines of the HT Truetype body or a Volks Neo Guy and sculpting is greatly improved over the Buck. Looks great so far :D

Huh... I didn't realize that the Joe girls have such a large fan base, I think a lot of us had crushes on these gals as we were just lil guys LMAO!!!

What about the Baroness!!! Oh yes!!!

yup i had a huge crush on jaye when i was 6 so i'd love to see her get a figure made sooner rather then latter

lol, that's so funny! I did as well... something about her voice in the cartoon, I really liked it. Not to mention they animated her fairly, uh, voluptuously!

I'd love to see her and Scarlett at least, although I'd prefer her design to be more like Snake Eyes (ie: more like the original figure/cartoon character) than Cobra Commander (a little too "updated").

Yes I agree Cover Girl is the bomb, although she didn't get much screen time on the cartoon series... I think Scarlet later on was phased out as soon as Lady Jaye came up on the scene, I do remember them having one episode where all girls were in there because the Joe's were being hypnotize by this stupid shell that the Baroness found and played like a flute.

i agree since the cartoon is how i was introduced to them i like the cartoon style. i think jayes custom would still work with ss and their more "realistic" approach. scarlett's they may mess with but i hope they don't.

i'm looking forward to getting them but with how many characters there are it might be a long time before we see them. at $100 plus a figure i'm happy they aren't putting them out every month but i hope i don't have to wait a couple of years before i get jaye and flint

Actually, I liked the first Devil's Due costume upgrade for Scarlett quite a bit. If they go along those lines, it would turn out great I think.

To me, the Staff with Concealed Blade is a must for the Cobra Commander. Sideshow should have include this Staff as a standard issue item for all the Cobra Commander figures and give us something else as the exlusive item.

The fact that these figures are originally slated to be released one per quarter it'll be easier for collectors to get the exclusives and keep them. That is what I'm banking on.

Wow, I wish my waitlist would convert. But its my own fault for not ordering while at SDCC and only getting on the waitlist three weeks ago. But now I think another board member may be hooking me up with the exclusive, so I am extremely happy. And as always, I love this board. It has been great since I discovered it. Thanks to everybody!

hope you get one furystorm. i'm sure your waitlist will convert when they ship even if you just put it in 3 weeks ago. people tend to hang onto preorders until the last minute and then a lot cancel for various reasons. ive gotten on waitlists months later and still have gotten figures. ive even canceled figures at shipping time, regretted it and jumped back on the waitlist and it still converts.

Depends on the supply and demand. I think the Joe line will hold way more value than the Star Wars line which you can get old figures, even exclusives, for less than what they retailed for.

It matters because if something wont hold its value then it makes it less appealing. It is silly to buy something that may be cheaper down the road but smart if it has a good chance of being worth more. Plus, this line is OK but id like to see it in person. I saw a custom snake eyes on Ebay that looks better than the sideshow version, atleast in the pics. So im worried I may not like it once its here.

I don't really see how the exclusive accessory is necessary. I mean, it's cool, but I don't recall any instance where the character used one of those. However, I may be mistaken, because I'm not a huge comics fan. Nevertheless as far as I'm concerned, as long as he has his trademark laser pistol, he's good.

The P1 Exclusive Dio converted Saturday night, at the same time as the CC Exclusive. I've been debating on whether or not to keep the P1, but now I think the answer "keep it!!!!" Should be shipping today or tomorrow too. I was just surprised because I got on it after Comic-Con!
