Big thanks to SNAKE EYES from HissTank.com for letting us know that a new TV Spot has been uploaded to YouTube via TheMovieBox.net. There’s actually a decent amount of new footage in this one, too, showing some more straight-up military stuff here and there. Also gotta love the shot of the Howler taking off from an Aircraft Carrier… hmmm…
I’ll warn you right up front… the Rise of COBRA reviews are going to be pretty frenetic as I kind of scoop up figures here and there, but for better or worse, the first five figure reviews are uploaded now! Check out the brand spanking new Rise of COBRA Reviews Page with links to all of the reviews I’ve posted so far:
Overall, I’m quite impressed. There are plenty of kinks to still work out, but by and large, these figures have retained the increased mobility and articulation of the Anniversary figures, but are infinitely more “playable”, the feel more durable, and more interactive. All the benefits of the Anniversary styling, with a fraction of the drawbacks from a “toy” perspective. Yeah…I’m definitely impressed.
I think once Hasbro kinds of burns through the typical Reactive Armor look and the various shades of blacks and grays, the design aesthetic could get VERY cool, and I think the best is still to come. I’ll be looking forward to it, and I’ll be looking forward to doing the reviews for it.
Renowned toy reviewer Michael Crawford has posted a review of the recently released Rise of COBRA Shipwreck figure, and he loves what he sees. It averages at least three stars (out of four) in most categories, and even hits four stars in some spots. He’s got some pretty neat images to go along with it. Check out the review here.
Along with the three images I revealed Saturday, half a dozen more have come to light courtesy of AceShowBiz. Curious also how one of their images is simply a cropped version of one I showed before, with Scarlett removed…not sure what’s up with that.
Regardless, check out their story here, and the images are mirrored below.
