In a Toy Fair that was generally starved of G.I. Joe news, many of us latched onto the reveal of the upcoming “Viper” Combiner Wars figure, a repaint of a Legends scale Powerglide. A very familiar repaint.
Yes, for the first time ever, Hasbro is making a direct G.I. Joe link to their Transformers toy line, repainting the popular A-10 character blue and actually placing Cobra symbols on it to represent the Cobra Rattler! It’s a pretty neat touch, even if it’s just an homage, and not part of some larger scale over-arcing story.
Fellow What’s on Joe Mind host Chuck has actually received his Viper figure already, and put up a video review yesterday. I believe this is our first real look at the figure in hand, and should provide some entertainment for both G.I. Joe and Transformers fans out there. Check out the video review below.
