    The old Pro 1.2 was pretty much perfect for posing Joes. I take it the Viper still has the ratchet knees?

    Re: SSC Cobra Viper

    These shots made me a fan of the chrome. Still wish the mask didn't protrude below the front of the helmet so much though.

    No, I didn't say perfectly flush but much moreso than those in-hand pics. But again I'm really thinking its a matter of futzing and won't say anything more about it for the time being.

    Re: SSC Cobra Viper

    Nah, you can see on the proto that the silver should be more "flush" with the sides of the helmet, almost one continuous line, but as Buttmunch said it could be two pieces a simple futz will correct.

    Not loving the chrome, or the extra mask peaking below the sides of the helmet. The protoype helmet/mask on the box art looked perfect to me.

    I could see them making 86 Roadblock first. Even with a new body the figure will still most likely look better with a t-shirt on.

    SSC really seems to fire on all cylinders when it comes to 1986.

    Now we see why they did the weathering on the boots.

    If a random headsculpt for an army builder sells out in a couple hours they'll definitely need to do PPO's for the heavy hitters from now on.

    Re: SSC Cobra Viper

    Agreed. The CG uniform was often hidden in the back of an elite Cobra agent's closet or worn in throne rooms, etc. Definitely shouldn't be covered in mud.

    Thanks for the scoop Show_Hooligan. Did the idea for giving them the paratrooper helmet come from trying to reverse engineer an explanation as to why they'd have those goggles on top of their...

    I don't see any reason to assume a Viper helmet wouldn't have padding inside it. I doubt they'd run around with two helmets on.

    The more I look at the pics the more I'm leaning toward agreeing with most of you about the weathering. I see dirt also covers the red strips on his legs. These guys are kind of sci-fi looking,...

    After Stalker and the Viper I'm sure the Crimson Guard will come with their vintage rifles as well, so not much need to be concerned over their modern weapons in the Cobra Throne diorama.

    Wasn't sure we'd be getting goggles, vintage rifle, or red accents on suit. Pants look close enough to the original design for me. Only nitpick is the vintage gun looks a little small. Awesome all...
