Yesssss. The Commander has joined his Cobra troops in the Classified ranks with #06 Cobra Commander. Part of wave 2, he comes packed with Gung Ho and the Red Ninja. 3 to a case, so other than Classified being on fire and blowing out everywhere, he should be relatively easy to find once things normalize. This is his dark blue standard deco – he also has a Regal variant coming with a brighter blue, and a Snake Supreme variant which is even darker blue with red and gold highlights. In package he has a dagger and gun – both with a snake theme, plus 2 extra hands – a closed fist and pointing finger. There is a lot of painted detailing going on with the face mask, helmet, shoulder, buttons and chain, dagger and gun, Cobra emblems and leg stripes. He also has a molded cape attached to overlay gear that is not easily removable.
We’ve run Cobra Commander through a session, read on to check out 50 HD shots and some additional thoughts.

G.I. Joe Classified Cobra Commander
Sssssssuperb. Dig it. A nice modern upgrade to the boss. Tones are not crazy bright, but not dull either. Paint is well done, but on my copy a bit sloppy. Lots of rogue silver splotches, and even some black splotches on the leg. End results if done cleanly is great though. Appreciate the extra hands as well. Not many downsides for me other than the cape. I am ok with the molded cape but it should be easily removable. Having him sit down in a makeshift throne requires effort. His lower jacket also doesn’t bend with the figure well and forces a pop up in sitting stance. Can be done, but needs focus. Sculpt wise it’s solid head to toe. Less range in ab crunch, but not loose. Articulation otherwise is super top level with all points there like the rest of the line. Bottom line, was happy with all of wave 2, the line seems to have evened out since Wave 1. If it keeps on this path I’ll be a happy camper. Other than needing to buy everything on eBay at inflated prices. :/
