I'd buy them. More for nostalgic purposes than anything else, but I'd buy them. Just picked up the original Cobra-La pack still sealed.

 

Golobulus with a proper tail that can actually bend and he could stand on would be awesome.

Wouldn't mind see the guards or Pythona, I think I would pass on Golobulus though unless it was really well done i wouldn't mind a 6 pack 5 royal guards and Pythona and I still don't get why we haven't seen a Big Lob yet, on that note how about a Renegades (from the movie) and SGT. Slaughter pack, add Falcon and Big Lob and you got yourself a six pack.

 

I really think it has to do with the fact that there is a portion of collectors that despise the movie.

I would buy 2 royal guards at the most, but I really like your Renegades idea. I'd buy that in a second, even though It'd make me kick myself over the ungodly amount of money I spent getting my SDCC Slaughter.

 

When you say Big Lob, do you mean in the 25th style? Because they did make a RAH style one for the collectors club.

I like to hate on Cobra-La, but in all honesty I'd buy all of these except Golobulus.

My Captain Pepsi has produced more inspiration!

 

A Golobulus pod featuring authentic Burges Merideth quotes:

 

"Know that it was I who created you, Serpentor. You are mine!"

 

"You were my hope, Cobra Commander, and you failed me......MISERABLY!"

 

"You have lost GI Joe. LOST!"

 

 

Tell me you wouldn't buy that.

I would love to get a set of 25th cobra-la figures with a new Nemesis Enforcer too. Not sure about modern, or POC. It would be a good 5 or 6 pack.

They have made a 25th Nemesis Enforcer. He came in a 2-pack with Falcon.

Oh definitely! With what they could do with these characters today, I think they'd turn out damn cool and MUCH better than the originals. Even these custom jobs of characters like Golobulous are awesome...

Yeah 25th style and mass released.

I have mixed feelings about Cobra-La. Sure, it would be nice to see a Pythona or an updated Cobra-La guardsman toy, but Cobra-La pretty much killed my love for the cartoon series when I was a kid.

I don't mind Cobra La figures, I like the story as a one off. It's a shame we never got Pythona or Big Lob, thought to be honest I hate the current Joe design so unless they do Pythona in an O ring it won't mean as much to me. Big Lob can be bought with the O ring, he should of had a larger release than a convention exclusive.

 

 

Cobra La reimagined:

 

When I was younger I used to reenvision that Cobra La were from northern Alaska. Golobulus was original an oil baron who headed up an oil drilling company in Alaska but eventually got into this organic manipulation/religon. They still had humans fronting a town and the oil business but secretly were all part of this huge secret La group. Cobra Commander would swing into town and try to rob the people blind. Once they figure out what Cobra Commander is about he is confronted by the La against his small Cobra group, eventually they make a pact and the formation of Cobra-La begins and they provide the big financial push CC needed to really make Cobra into a large scale force with the idea he would topple govenments and Cobra La would then dominate the world, of course he never returned and then the movie takes place off that different origin.

 

The spores would turn people into mindless drones, almost like zombies. They would turn the spores on Cobra Commander like in the movie BUT his mask helps filter most of the tiny spores and it left him semi-mindless, at becomes the slave of Serpentor. CC is saved from the final conflict, the La are completely destroyed and Serpentor rules, eventually due to CC's limited contact he is naturally restored and starts the civil war on Cobra Island that results in the death of Serpentor, who is holed up in the Terrordrome and assasinated by Storm Shadow.

I'd buy this over secert society that started cobra.

 

I'd also accept genetic manipulation. As a kid I wasn't a big cobra la but I can't deny i loved pitting my joes against the mega marines monsters or kenners aliens as a kid. When i first played resident evil I instantly thought of joe. So monsters could be done right, but they would have to be drastically altered for me to buy. As much as pythona is interesting, there are easily tons more female figs i want first (Jinx, DDP Jinx, VVV Jinx, Dr. Knox, Mayday, Bombshell, classic covergirl, even Vypra or Cadet Demming first)
