    Default Re: Desert Cobra Sniper!!

    Also... can't recall a single desert Cobra trooper in all of RAH... even the crap Devil's Due stuff. This is as easy as pass as Cherry Cobra Commander was, imho.

    At least we knew this punt was coming. Good to get it out of the way so we can anticipate actual new figures in the line again now, not lazy rehashes.

    I don't buy whatever they make no questions asked. Thats a totally inaccurate statement in regards to myself. Sure there are those that do but I'm not one. I just think this figure looks cool as I like the initial version they put out. However, you're acting like its a bad thing when you make statements that folks will buy no matter what. Just come out and say it already. I don't tell you how to collect don't try and tell me.

    yeah, but going into any line you should expect a certain amount of that.

    Arguably, SSC's failure to "go lazy" KILLED the LOTR line. All SSC had to do to keep that line moving was release 9 different Ringwraiths and 3 different Orcs and 3 different Urukhai reusing 90% of the same parts and everyone would be happy campers.

    If them cherry picking the extra money from people willing to buy variants keeps the line moving so that specific characters get made, everyone's a winner.

    I suspect this is a filler in order to fill the 6 per year number touted earlier.

    Read the new comics then. The ones that are now official cannon with the old IDW stuff. Cobra snipers make an apperance. Though they're not wearing this colored gear.

    I'd probably get a black ninja. A cool figure is a cool figure. What can I say I like some of these figures enough to get different versions. Of course as much as like these I of course want original figures as well.

    All true, but this is the FOURTH version of a Cobra Trooper in what is still a pretty young line. They need to pace these variants a lot better, imho. It's not like they're churning out 10-12 figures a year or anything.
