Man, so many others I could add, most notably the Crimson Guard Immortal and Alley Viper, but RAH was a goldmine for army-builders! Even narrowing it down to 10 is difficult...


I don't know which to pick, to be honest. I LOVE the original CG, but he doesn't stand out as much now that we've got the OCS and 6-pack versions (although the original will always be the best). The Viper's sort of the same way, although none of the re-colours are even close to holding up to the classic.


I've never been into BATs, although I admit they're cool and I'll have to pick some up eventually. Snow Serpents are great, and I've always had a soft spot for Televipers, too.


Maybe I'll just wait for some answers...

Eh, I decided to go with the Viper - mostly because that's what I want more of right now. I have enough of the others (4 vintage CGs, with 8 more 6-pack versions and 6 OCS CGs backing them up, and a bunch of Cobra Infantry sets), that my set of four V1 Vipers look quite unimpressive.

Tough call! I went with the '86 Vipers because that's what I have the most of, but I'd also like to troop build the Crimson Guards, Snow Serpents and the original Trooper/Officer figures.

I think actaully I'd go with the Rock Viper or the Range Viper, both of which were too late for me to get them first time around.


The HEAT viper is also pretty high on my list.


As A kid I really liked the Frag Viper and Night Viper but have never really re-discovered the enthusiasm I used to have for them


Generally the 88-90 army builder sculpts really outshine the earlier ones IMO

Although we've been flooded with tons of repait in the recent past the Viper is still my favorite army builder. The cartoon just had more of an impact on me during the seasons that included Vipers.

Gotta go with the original as my primary. But the Viper is a definite second if not borderline tie for first. Snow Serpents are running at a distant third.

For some reason I've always been partial to arctic warfare. Actually, I think it dates back to when I first saw the Battle of Hoth in Empire Strikes Back, but I digress. The Snow Serpent is easily my favorite Cobra army builder because he's Cobra's arctic infantry unit.

This is very tough question but I'm leaning towards 1985 Snow Serpent as my all time favorite Cobra army builder at the moment. He along with 1984 Scrap Iron and 1986 Beachhead were the only 3 Real American Hero action figures that I lost from my childhood. That says a lot about how much I liked them. I'm also a big fan of Night-Viper and 1985 Eels. By the way, Night-Viper was released in 1989 not 1988.
