Sunbow Snake Eyes (Kid Rhino DVD 2003)

1983 COBRA Commander

The first COBRA Commander mold is quite a special thing. It’s incredibly well done, and it manages to walk a fine line of being obviously in charge, without being too far removed from the bulk of COBRA’s fighting forces. It’s … Continue reading

Storm Shadow as a good guy is something that the fan base is quite divided on, it’s one of those things that both arguments pro and con for him being a Joe have merit. A while back in a comment, … Continue reading
