COOOBRAAAA x 3! As we round out the first year of G.I. Joe being back on retail shelves and it’s first dip into modern 6 Inch territory, it’s only fitting that Cobra Commander caps it off. The Regal variant is a 3rd use of the Cobra Commander body (see the retail and Snake Supreme versions). Main line had a dark blue and silver trim version. Then we got word that app-first retail site NTWRK would be getting an exclusive color variant, without acknowledging the variant. They got a promo copy and posted pics, told everyone to come get it. Whoops, because that was a mistake, and they were just getting the regular one. Everyone was sad. But wait, Hasbro to the rescue, they decided to print the lighter blue variant, but not offer it via NTWRK, instead selling it on PULSE, and it would drop later in the year. AKA this month. And here it is. Whew.
Bottom line, this is the same Commander that’s been out before, new colors. Closer to some vintage Cobra Commander decos from years past. In my opinion, all three are equally nice, all touch retro notes. Depending on your taste or your setup needs – any one could work. I’m happy displaying them all.
So to celebrate year one of G.I. Joe Classified, read on to take a look at Regal Cobra Commander after the break. We’d like to thank Hasbro and the Joe team for kicking ass this year, we can’t wait for 2021 (for multiple reasons). YO JOE! / CO-BRA!
