well, the minicomic # 6 has the Wave 8 products on the reverse side of it, and it does have the Televiper, but the name on "Airborne" or "Ripcord" says only "Halo Jumper" and his specialty says Paratrooper. So this leads me to believe that Even Hasbro does not know who they will call him!

he'll be released as Halo Jumper lol @smilepunch@ #US1#

Code Name: PIT VIPER Cobra Infiltration Trooper

 

Intensely Trained under the most grueling conditions to be sneaky, ruthless and persistent, PIT VIPER troops are the stealth evasion and infiltration specialists of the COBRA ground forces. Their radar-resistant, magnetically shielded padded uniforms allow them to move silently and undetected even through mine fields and are also efficient in defeating passive thermal detectors. their helmets contain infrared sensors and fourth generation image intensifiers that provide clear night vision and warnings against trip beams. Their weapons are all suppresed and silenced, firing sub-sonic ammunition. Each weapon is made up mostly of non-metalic parts and is shielded against other means of detection. The pit viper trooper is conditioned to avoid contact far as long as possible to gain the deepest penetration into GIJOE defenses, but is capable of fierce and efficient response when fired upon.

 

"Did you ever stare into a dark field at niht and imagine that things were moving out there? Well, we PITVIPER troops are really out there, and we're moving towards you."

He is ok, but t batle helmet CC is still the best from this wave!!! I think it is cool that they worked his new uniform (battlefield command uniform) out as battle armor. it is the kind of thing that CC WOULD do! And his quote busts me up1

 

"How can the GI JOE team expect to beat my legions? They are barely paid minimum wage and all their equipment is built by the lowest bidder!"

 

That is extremely funny!

DOes the jvc v1 cc head fit on this new stormy. If so i'll have to grab one to swtich out on.

 

Is switch gears the orginal Gears? does that metal come off of him (shoulder pads, they kinda look removable)

 

Is gung-ho blonde?

 

Does switch gears helmet fit on btr duke? on regular v2 duke?

 

who has extra articulation?

Here you go Naz:

 

1. If you mean will the hooded head fit on the battle hemet body CC, I did not try it, but the way it is built, I don't think it would look normal.

 

2. Switch Gears is a new character, and the Shoulder pads do not come off.

 

3. Gung Ho IS blonde (I don't understand it either. He must go to the same hairdresser as Blowtorch and Hawk)

 

4. Switch Gears helmet fits on the wave 4 duke, but not really great on BTR Duke.

 

5. No figures in wave 8 (unless Sgt. airborne or the Televiper, which I didn't get yet) have extra articulation.

 

6. If you mean his gun, I don't remember, cause I mixed them all up, as I was in a hurry to get them all open, and put Cobra mountain together!

 

7. They all h ave the GI JOE loo on them, but no one has the wave 7 "tatoo" like wave 7 grunt.

 

8. The comic has no next comic, as it ties directly into spytroops the movie. The product pics on the other side has wave 8 figures, the conquest of Cobra mountain, the Grizzly, ringneck, splitfire, the palar blast, desert coyote, and some 12 inch guys. It does have the Televiper, and "halo jumper" on it.

 

On a side note, the "instruction sheet for the wave 7.5 CC and Bats pack has a diagram of how to put the cape on the Battle helmet CC, which leads me to believe that he was supposed to come with the bat instead of the o-ringed black and red version.

I meant cloack on switch gears. The one he puts over his face with the helmet.

 

sucks about the no swivel wrists.

 

does the cc cape come off well?

 

7.5 bat and wave 7 bat differences?

 

THanks man for answering all our questions

The cloak that switch gears has is a short version, CC's cape comes off very easy, The only difference with the bats is the 7.5 has the cobra emblem on its leg (ala wave 4 bats) and the circle under his chest plate is red instead of yellow.

 

I am happy to answer questions, as these toys are all pretty much GREAT!!!! I can't wit for WAVE 9!!!!
