Classified Cobra Infantry. The King (for now)
« on: April 17, 2021, 08:37:41 AM »

So I have lucked out and managed to grab 4 if this figure.  Considering the $@#+ show of trying to get the CI Trooper, I will take this an run.

So the figure is basically the CI Trooper with fewer accessories.

However I can't say enough about how great this figure is, both from a figure standpoint, and from an updated Cobra trooper standpoint.

The detailing at the 6" scale really comes through.  The colour is a nice muted Cobra blue that gives it a bit more realistic look.  The helmet fits really well, and the face paint (photo realistic) is great.

The accessories are great, with a nice selection of guns.  Actual guns, not sci-fi laser cannons, I'm looking at you Roadblock.  Everything also has a spot on the vest/body which is always a good thing. 

The range of motion is as to be expected with a modern 6" figure.  Really good range overall so you can get some great poses.  I know it may sound greedy, but I would have loved to have a stand included.  However it isn't a deal breaker by any means.

The biggest negative to me is the vest not being removable, well not without some major work.  This should be a given for any, and all, Joe figures.  It would also allow for more customization/swapping among figures.

Also I wish they would have kept the files cards, but that is a minor gripe.

I have most of the Classified line so far, and by far this is my favourite figure.  It is stunning, to me, and really combines the best of ARAH and modern styling.

Now hopefully I can find the Viper and Firefly.
