Sideshow G.I. JOE 1/6th Cobra Officer Quasi Review...

When I see this figure, all I can think (beyond "fuck yeah", and mentally shootin' the horns \m/) is, "where the hell were these designs in Rise Of Cobra..?"
Instead of the classic Cobra look, the audience of ROC was "treated" to updated versions of Cobra Troopers that looked like some sort of half assed, armored rejects from somewhere Beyond Thunderdome than they did the Hasbro-verse.
Anyhoo, here's Sideshow's much, much better version of the Cobra Officer...








If you're interested, this badboy is still available over at the Sideshow Website...

He looks better than I expected him to be....I think he looks more like a real 'terrorist' now rather than them cannon fodders in the cartoon series! I still remember watching GI Joe in the 80s and thinking..."what the heck are these guys doing....taking all the hit to protect Destro/Cobra Commander...and NOT hitting a single target themselves!"...LOL!
