  1. Top five ARAH vehicles I would like Hasbro to re-issue: 5) B.U.G.G. 4) Thunder Machine 3) C.L.A.W. 2) D.E.M.O.N. 1) Hurricane VTOL Why did I choose the Hurricane as my number one choice? Simple. Because Cobra's air force to date BLOWS! Sure we got Destro's Dominator, which is a good assault helicopter but to date Cobra doesn't have one good jet fighter. The Hurricane is the best jet fighter Cobra ever had, period the end. The Rattler sucks, it still sucks, and the TRU version sucked to the extreme. The Night Raven was a class act, one of the sleekest, best designed and kick ass jets Cobra had but a little too big for play value. Python Conquest, great jet, Joe vehicles are always better when made for Cobra anyway, but the chances of getting this thing again are slim to none, since the Joes got this one first, again. Liquidator, nice design, good size, but not the best. The Hurricane has it all, small enought to play with but not as small as a Firebat, excellent high-tech aerodynamic design, plenty of missile ordinace, cockpit room for two, VTOL capabilities, and a detachable robot drone. Hurricanes are one of the hardest vehicles to find on E-Bay, and even the loose ones run up prices of $30 dollars or more much less a MIB one, which I've seen only a couple of and those ran for $70 to $100 dollars. Let's get down to brass taxes guys. Since 2000 we've had Cobra armor (HISS III, Dominator, HISS IV, Ringneck, CAT), amphibious equipment (Man-O-War, Wave Crusher, Mantis, Treadfire) and fast attack vehicle (Venom Cycle), a snow mobile (Polar Blast), and a couple of choppers (Dominator, FANG III). We need a jet fighter my fellow Cobra fanatics and we need the next one to slam dunk the Joe competition and erase the humiliation that was the Rattler.
  2. Top five tanks I'd like to see get reissued are: 1) D.E.M.O.N. 2) Rage 3) Razorback 4) Paralyzer 5) Crimson Sentry & Missile System Now granted, number 5 was an exclusive to Sears but if Kay-Bee brought back the C.A.T. maybe a store like Walmart or another outlet will bring back the S.M.S.
  3. hahah true true! and now with that C.A.T. tank, its looking really good for the cobra team! No kidding! For everyone out there who supports the red snake our luck is changing rapidly this year. First great original Cobra trooper releases like the new IRON Grenadier, Sand-Viper, and Cobra COILS. Then troop builder packs like the B.A.T. squad and Python Patrol. And now a re-release of the Crimson Attack Tank. Cobra is finely shaping back up to the kick ass, take no prisoners, world domination organization of evil it once was.
  4. I second the motion. Months of getting lousy Cobra gear like the Mantis, HISS IV, FANG III, the Rattler (especially pathetic :evil: ), the Ringneck but finally Hasbro does something smart and go old school and releases a tried and true military vehicle for Cobra. This tank is a godsend my fellow Vipers and Cobra warlords so do not pass it up.
  5. There are accessories packs for the SWAT line too. http://www.blueboxtoys.com/bbi/eForce/4inc...nches/swat.htm# Whether their out yet and if these weapons are as durable as the GI Joe brand are questions I'd like answered too.
  6. Thanks much for that.
  7. I ordered 6 of the BAT packs from GIJoeForSale.com back in December for 13.50 a pack which was the cheapest price for them at the time. They announced on their website last weekend they were shipping out pre-orders so I'm expecting my 30 BATs in the mail any day now. They should go great with the new MIB Cobra Parasite and MIB Cobra Earthquake I just got.
  8. The fact that Toys R Us has the brains to create such a great Cobra troop builder set like this new Python Patrol and then put it on sale for $5 dollars off the original asking price is any Cobra troop builder's dream. I pre-ordered 6 packs of the new Python Patrol and think they will look smashing with the other 80 or so Vipers and Cobra soldiers of various rank and speciality in my collection. It's hard enough being a Cobra troop builder having to buy a Joe everytime you want to pick up a new IRON Grenadier or Sand-Viper, and be forced to pay more money then you want. Anyone who calls him/herself a Cobra fan and passes up this deal should be dragged out to the middle of the street and shot. ^*^
  9. Depends on the type of Cobra soldier. I'm not the kind of guy who buys one of each different figure for the hell of it because I'm specific to what I like. For instance I haven't bought any of the Moray, CLAWS, or BAT III figures. If I like one I'll probably aim to get a lot of them. Of the new figures I currently have: 17x Vipers (Wave 2) 9x Alley-Vipers (Wave 2) 15x Shock-Vipers (Wave 4) 9x Neo-Vipers (Wave 4) 3x IRON Grenadiers (Wave 5) I plan on getting at least 12 more IRON Grenadiers, 15 Sand-Vipers because I really like that new trooper's look, and probably 9 each of the new Night Creepers and Cobra COILS. I've already got 6 of new BAT army builder packs coming in the mail from GIJoeForSale.com and I plan on getting 6 packs of the new Python Patrol. If you stick to a pre-determined number of troops you want to collect of each type I think it helps manage your collecting of them. That and the fact that Cobra's vehicle selection has sucked so I've saved a little money there.
