I will pick up just one of these to start. But as they become available for less on ebay and in the forum from members who decide to part with them, I could see myself picking up four or five all together.

I agree that it would be nice to have a surprise announcement. Something none of us have a clue about as far as this line goes. That being said, I am very happy with the line so far!

SSC said only one a quarter which means simply four a year. They started mid year so the fact we are seeing three is actually ahead of their own curve.


When is Cobra Commander coming out?

If I remember correctly Snake Eyes is Q1 09, Cobra Commander is Q2 09 so Cobra Trooper would be a Q3 09 shipment and whatever we get next will be scheduled for Q4 2009 shipping.


So... the Cobra Officer. SSC exclusive version of the Trooper, or completely separate offering? Now where's the Crimson Guardsmen?

The Cobra Officer:

http://smalljoes.com/images_gijoe/loose/cobraofficer_l.jpg

Would be an awesome SDCC exclusive because the change is subtile and only diehard would really be upset for missing it. The thing is if Cobra Trooper is really scheduled to ship in Q3 like expected that means anytime between July through September. We haven't seen an SDCC Exclusive of something that wasn't already in full release so it might be premature for this one.

On the other hand I want full release for the Crimson Guard!:

It would be seperate. It would make people buy another figure instead of just switching some of the parts when you feel like it.

Exclusive will probably be an extra weapon or alternated colored mask.

Then you should grab 2, to flank CC. Only paying for one would be a good perk.

karamazov80
12-12-2008, 11:15 AM
I figured in my earlier post that the Exclusive could be the first released Officer, which could be done by only switching out the helmet and shirt:

Cobra Trooper (http://www.yojoe.com/action/82/82images/cobra.shtml)

Cobra Officer (http://www.yojoe.com/action/82/82images/cobraofficer.shtml)

There are a few other, minor differences, but that would make him distinctive enough. However, Sideshow did release some wacky Storm Trooper repaint as a completely separate release, so it could be done here, too. In any case, it seems fairly reasonable to do a shorter-run of Officers, since most of the outfit, headsculpt, etc. could be re-used, saving on production costs.

The red mask comes from the comic book version. So, it might also make some sense to give the exclusive an extra red mask, and then to later release an Officer by himself, with his exclusive also getting the "comic" mask.

That helmet might also work on a "Battle Helmet" Cobra Commander (http://www.yojoe.com/action/82/82images/cobracommander.shtml). . .

Yea, and the shape of the helmet brim and how the sides flare a bit was the main thing I was wanting to see right.

Khev

Thankfully SSC seems to do a much better job with helmets for GI Joe than with Star Wars. :D

I'm guessing the Trooper will come with black mask only and the exclusive will be the Dragunov sniper rifle packaged with the vintage figure.

EVILFACE
12-12-2008, 12:34 PM
Sniper rifle is a good bet. He prolly comes with the gun shown, a sidearm, knife and some grenades.

Good looking fig, so far! Nice to see a new entry in the line. Depending on the price, I might passon this one. Not because of any quality issues, but because I'd really like to put a couple of Crimson Guard behind The Commander instead.

To echo a statement made in the Indiana Jones forum:

LOTR 1/6 scale line: Seven figures, ZERO villains.

GI Joe 1/6 scale line: Three figures, TWO villains. And one is the leader and the other a troop builder.

I'm very happy with how this line is progressing. :)

Looking SWEET! Much better than I thought - a lot more like the original than those earlier design pics suggested. I'm all for that.

Red mask for the exclusive would be kind of lame... So far it's been a weapon/accessory. Maybe the Dragunov that came with the original Cobra Soldier?

I think the majority of us are assuming Duke is the front runner for the next announcement. I didn't actually notice that the SSC Trooper was holding an AK-47 due to the scope and banana clip being out. I wonder if that means they aren't planning on doing an Officer as a separate release. To tell the truth I don't know that I'd want them to waste a coveted quarterly release on an Officer anyway since it'd be so similar to the Trooper.

Yes that is a guy in a costume. Does anyone really think that was the figure? :rotfl

Its also obvious that they are using the 25th Anniversary stylings for their inspiration. Which means the Cobra Officer will most likely look like this (on the left next to the Cobra Trooper for comparison):

Of course it is, I never said anything to the contrary :confused:
All I said was that because so much of the figure's costume and weapon corresponds with the mock up, that you can expect the rest of the figure to be styled the same.

Actually, if you look in the lower right side of the mock up picture, you'll see the changes were already made to the figures' shirt, SSC just used off the shelf costume elements to get a general idea of a realistic looking Cobra trooper.

EVILFACE

That is what is odd about this figure. AK47's came with the Cobra Officer while the Dragonov came with the Cobra Trooper. I hope the Officer get the silver logo and helmet insignia (exclusive?).

I'm thinking maybe they sculpted a flat lower face so they could glue the material directly on top of it. That way it still looks like fabric, but will stay in place at atll times.

This line looks like it could be potentially be the figure line to end all lines but there's one thing that's a little bit of a bummer. Since SSC is allowed to reprint the original filecards on the packaging I bet Hasbro would have let them use the original card art as well. SSC obviously chose to forego that option in favor of modernizing the characters a little. All three figures so far look great but I wish we were getting exact replications of the vintage card art in 12 inch form, complete with the original art and filecards on the package. Oh well.

Scarlett and Baroness are givens. If the line has real legs I think you'll see characters like Lady Jaye, Cover Girl and probably Zatanna. Lara Croft's Proto face would have made for a great Scarlett.

i really hope they get to lady jaye and flint. two of my favorites from childhood. i don't mind the line being heavily cobra as long as those two make it out before the line is put on hold

What good is a trooper w/o his commander :)

Cobra Commander will ship first. I think this guy will be 3rd Qtr and I believe CC is 2nd Qtr.

Your question should be "What good is a Commander without his troopers?" :D

I remember someone posted some pics of the DiD Obama figure tied up by the HT Joker. I think that might be a cool set up with Cobra Commander and two troopers. Cobra is a terrorist organization afterall. Snake Eyes to save the day!


I hope i don't get questioned by FBI, found this on toy-world forum.
Before I post this, I want to say, I'm 100% in support of Obama and these pictures don't express my views or secret plans.

At $100 I think its a bit too pricey for what you get. I would have liked at least another rifle.

Yep, the trooper should have been at the $80 mark, but I ordered one anyway. If I find them for less later, I may cancel with SS. But I remember SS stating that the figures would run from $79 up, and was fully expecting this particular figure to fall on the low end of the pricing. Oh well, I still love this line!

And did anyone notice, the trooper is shipping second quarter just like CC?

Personally, I'm pumped for this line. G.I. Joe was my all time favorite toy as a child in the 80's and my gateway into comic books. I can still remember my first comic book, G.I. Joe 33, bought on the way back from a family vacation to Disney World. After reading and rereading that comic (which I still have!) I discovered that back issues were available at my local comic shop. Now I have far too many comics to mention here.

The fact that I had to pick and choose which Joes I could have as a kid, is leading me to become a completist in this new Sideshow line. Having seen SS and CC at Comic-Con, I was blown away. I want my shelves full of Joes and Cobra!

Only thing I'm not entirely digging are the boots... sculpt looks a little soft, but it could also be that they seem to clean. But aside from that real happy with how he turned out.

But, because I'm cheap and there is no exclusive I'll either buy from a retailer or try and get one on the cheap after they've been released. W/a limit of 6 per household I'm thinking he won't be too hard to comeby in the future.

Cobra Trooper summary that will appear on the package interior:


There are many scales on the belly of the COBRA organization. Outcasts, deserters, and those who are disillusioned are the typical candidates that COBRA targets to join their forces. These anonymous individuals that swell the COBRA infantry begin their careers as COBRA Troopers. They are usually the first COBRA forces encountered in combat by the G.I. Joe team on their missions. These troops, or "blueshirts" as the Joe team refers to them, are forces to be reckoned with. Each trooper is trained in many different forms of hand-to-hand combat, extensive weapons and demolitions handling, as well as disguise and stealth. This physical and psychological training molds these individuals into sadistic and hardened troopers. With COBRA cells spread across the globe, troopers may be dispatched anywhere in order to carry out their missions. COBRA demands complete and unwavering loyalty to their high command but more importantly to their objective of world domination. Only those most merciless on the battlefield, ruthless in their ambition and lustful for power can climb the ranks in COBRA. The same maniacal traits which fuel COBRA Commander slither in the veins of each COBRA Trooper........COBRA!

Here's Cobra Commander's:


He leads the force of COBRA, a ruthless terrorist organization that has become a thorn in the sides of the GI Joe team and threat to the entire world. He has legions of soldiers, millions of dollars and an arsenal of state of the art equipment at his disposal, yet the man remains a mystery. Cobra Commander is as arrogant as he is ruthless, and if there is a face of evil, it lies under a blue shroud. Bent on world domination, Cobra Commander cuts a swath through freedom, liberty, and justice. He will stop at nothing to push his forces to victory. The only thing in his way: GI Joe.

It's actually an AKS-74 with an GP-25 Grenade launcher. :D
But you're 100% right, the Dragunov is a specialized sniper rifle, not suitable for grunts. Both Hot Toys and 21st Century Toys have released a Dragunov as a carded weapon. So there's plenty of those out there to replace or add to your Cobra Trooper.
I already have a couple of Dragunovs ready to slap into his hands.


I ordered one through Sideshow, but I'll likely cancel and get one through an online retailer since there's no exclusive.
Overall I think he looks fantastic. Yeah the helmet could look less flat on top, but it's no big issue.

Board members can always rely on TNM for his vulgarity. :banana

I will clarify my original post. If the mask is part of the sculpt with fabric glued ontop, you will need to find a substitute mask if you wish to have more than one trooper that aren't clones. And we don't know yet if the helmet is permanently attached like Indy's fedora.

The mask is NOT glued down. In the podcast they said the sculpted mask was done to give us a choice between the sculpted mask or the cloth mask placed over it. I'm fairly sure the helmet is removable since it is listed as an accessory.

Surely the helmet is removable! If it wasn't the cloth mask wouldn't be removable would it?

Starting to think that myself.....this should of been 69.99

See, that I would have gotten behind the figure at that price :)

Yeah I might have decided to get this at that price. This wasn't very essential to me in the first place, so it was an easy pass at $100.

Getting two of these and two storm troopers always goes back and forth in my mind...

I'm waiting for Destro. I did preordered Snake Eyes and Commander and Trooper but one of my favorite is Destro. I can't wait for the pictures. Destro will have minature missles on his wrist, leather jacket, imagine how cool his mask will look. I just hope they make the Evil Twins Tomax and Xamot, Zartan, Serpentor, Roadblock, Mainframe, B.AT. I know I have my hopes way too far up.

I'm waiting to order this figure until I see how good Snake Eyes is, I cancelled every preorder except this line.

Seeing as how there is no exclusive I imagine you could pick one up later on for closer to $70. Just a prediction.

That's what I'm thinking/hoping. Us Canadians get raped with shipping from Sideshow, unfortunately. I'm only going for the exclusives.

I would have ordered 3 if there was an exc but got 2. Have 3 of each CC and SE, that is what I am trying to do, but will see once they are ready to ship, money may factor in things.

I can understand one MIB and one open or one Ex and one Reg, but why 3 of each? :huh

Do you guys think the thin arms will look like crap on this figure too? While the outfit isn't skin tight, its not exactly baggy either. I fear this figure will also look a little scrawny.

I think the body will look fine on the troopers with the thicker clothes. And these are just generic average guys, not muscle bound superheroes.
