Some interesting images from the web today…

Been a busy day today, so I haven’t had much computer time.  Now that I’m playing catch up, just wanted to point out a couple of interesting pictures posted on sites around the ‘net…

First of all, Smokescreen posted the following images on the Coil Club:

Really cool to see G.I. Joe being advertised everywhere…seems like anywhere you look these days, it’s there.   Great to see!

Also, the guys at The Terror Drome also posted the following image from a fansite of Byung-Hun Lee (who plays Storm Shadow in G.I. Joe: The Rise of COBRA).  It shows that the Arctic Assault Storm Shadow looks to have some basis in the film as hypothosized:

I still remember when we’d go months without hearing any new G.I. Joe news.  Seeing this constant flow of information is fantastic!

Some images of G.I. Joe: The Rise of COBRA Troop Builders

Some of the harder to find troop builders for the Rise of COBRA so far are the COBRA Eel, the Crimson Neo-Viper, and the Elite-Viper.  They are out there, just haven’t really hit saturation yet.  But that hasn’t stopped JBL member madmac41 from tracking them down, and he very kindly supplied some images for GeneralsJoes of these tough to find army builders.  Check out the various images below!

COBRA Eel

Pretty cool looking figure from what I can tell, though it’s still tough to make out that mask.  I do like the Torpedo body, though it’s getting pretty heavy use these days!  The vest looks great, and there are some nice homages mixed in there.  Still not sure I’m going to break my back trying to pick this one up.

Crimson Neo-Viper

Really loving that red.  Looks great, especially on the Neo-Viper, which continues to  grow on me.  A recent post on JoeBattleLines brought up the idea that the head isn’t a skull, it’s a snake.  And the armor is patterned after the ribbed underbelly of the reptile, too.  A pretty cool concept, and it does make the figure at least a bit more appealing.  In this color, though, I gotta say, he looks even more like a COBRA La guy.

Elite-Viper

Now this figure has it all going on…I think.  Kinda tough to make out details, but he’s not using the typical movie trooper body, I like what he’s got a lot more.  More standard elbow pads and gear.  Some great weapons.  I really like this guy.

The COBRA Army builders have been so hit or miss with the Rise of COBRA (and mostly miss).  It’s been one of the only downsides of the line to me.  The Elite-Viper does look like a step in the right direction, though…
