To all my fellow Tankers who were on the hunt these last 2 weeks (and this morning) but did not score, I apologize for this gallery. I also did not find any in the wild, these figures come from an eBay purchase made after week 1 of the street date fiasco at a significant mark up. The time, mental stress and gas money needed to stay ahead of others to actually get lucky and find these things in the two weeks they were not actually supposed to be sold was not worth it, so I gave in.
Based on what happened this morning – no stock available because it all sold prior to today, and the online orders just being the ability to buy the items in your local stores for pick up, that don’t have any because they sold prior to today, would have made me pop an eye. I don’t blame any fan, or even scalpers, for hunting and scooping. This is a result of Hasbro and Target doing things the way they did. Underestimating demand, poor roll out methods, inability to cater to the collector market by large non-focused retailers, etc etc.
Personally, whenever things I collect are out in the wild, I want them. ASAP. I don’t like waiting. Once one civilian anywhere in the world with a camera (aka everyone) shows that they have an item, I want it. Waiting for weeks or months for it to filter out to retail, or waiting for another print run months later – not cool. It actually makes me dip out of collecting lines. I want to buy, open, experience the item, and then come online and talk about and share pics of that item with my fellow collectors that ALSO have those items. I don’t want to be first because I bought from eBay or China, and I don’t want to be doing this in March of next year when half the fandom is done with these figures, when they are buried on a shelf behind wave 2/3/4 already. We should all be able to enjoy these figures in real time, now. The “Water Cooler Effect” applied to TV shows of the 00s, applies to modern fandom collecting, and it’s being killed by the way things are done industry wide.
I actually held off sharing these pics because I didn’t want to piss off others like me who couldn’t find them. Waited for today, the almighty “street date” of 8/14, hoping that the situation in stores or online would make things better. Did not, made things worse. And unless something is put out on the wire today by Hasbro, it won’t be better. So again, I apologize. If you are pissed, let Hasbro know. Hopefully they can adjust things in the future, and figure a way to get us Cobra Troopers without going in and out of 200 stores over the course of weeks – during a pandemic.
Now that my salt shaker has cracked open all over the front page, let me clean up and get back to business. Read on to check out our gallery for the Cobra Island figures. 183 shots for Cobra Trooper, Beach Head and Roadblock are available after the break along with some quick thoughts on each.
Thanks to site sponsor Dorkside Toys we have official HD images of the recent Target exclusive Cobra Island figures. Roadblock, Beach Head, Baroness and C.O.I.L. and the Cobra Trooper all show off their goods in shots beyond the standard white BG product shots.
These were on Target.com for pre-order earlier this week for about 30 seconds. They should be hitting shelves on August 14th, though they are in store and out on shelves in some areas now. Some let you buy them, others enforce the street date. Each figure is coming packed in it’s own case, so each store should have at least 6 of each, hopefully more.

By way of the io9 comes official details of the G.I.Joe exclusive being offered this year.
Ladies & Gents – This year, fans will have the opportunity to add the Cobra Missile Command Center to their collections! Here’s the scoop –
Hasbro’s recreation of the set, which will be available at its San Diego Comic-Con booth (#3329) and later on HasbroToyShop.com for $50, still uses cardboard, but with recreated graphics. Hasbro’s even gone to the trouble of making the box look weathered so it appears as if it’s been sitting in your parent’s basement for decades.
After all these years, you can finally add this piece of cardboard beauty to your collection! For those of us that won’t be attending SDCC, time to get those F5 keys ready!
