1993 Toxo Zombie Reviewed!


Recommended Posts

I always dig reviews of old school Joe stuff because it helps bring a fresh perspective to old figures.


As for Toxo Z, I think with a more realistic paint job, he could have been very cool. The damaged uniform duplicated from an existing figure was certainly a novel thing to see in the Joe line. Unfortunately, the colors hold this figure back from being anything special in my collection.


If Hasbro were to do a Zombie remake in a decent color scheme, I could see Cobra using these guys for all types of things. One possible idea: Cobra could deploy groups of Zombies on the beaches of Cobra island to ward off any would be commandoes. They'd be a heck of a lot tougher than Croc Master and would probably provide an even greater "pucker" factor for intruders.


When I was a kid, I was big into zombies and still am. After a giant battle, I sometimes had some Mindbender-inspired doomsday device detonate, making all of the dead Cobras come back to life. That way the Joes had to fight even harder with even less equipment. It was a heck of a lot of fun, if not a little morbid. Usually the zombies attacked both Joes and any surviving Cobras. This always led to a Joe/ Cobra truce, which was always another fun scenario since personalities were allowed to clash in all new ways.


Plus, the idea of zombies moaning the word "Cobra" as they rise up from the smoking craters and crawl across HISS Tank wreckage is just too fun. :)
