Well, put this firmly in the “what the what–?” column. Apparently that formerly mysterious black Cobra Commander variant that was most recently seen as an Amazon.com exclusive has now started shipping in single pack form from ToysrUs.com.
Toys R Us had opened some G.I. Joe: Retaliation pre-orders a little while ago, and over on HissTank.com solid.wii reports that he received a black single pack Cobra Commander, and another member Rodimus88 confirms the fact. There are also images of the packaged figure and the receipt, which I’ve mirrored below.
Does this mean this Cobra Commander will be found at brick & mortar? It seems quite possible, but I guess time will tell. Thanks to noted author James Kavanaugh from the RAHC Guide for linking this info.
