COBRA Island Alley-Viper for sale loose through Black Sheep Toy Store

eBay seller Black Sheep Toy Store has re-listed the loose Defense of COBRA Island Alley-Viper figure, and it appears to come fully loaded with a full compliment of accessories, but at a much better price.  Previously selling for $29.99, the figure has now been relisted at $14.99 with free shipping!  Not a bad deal for folks wanting to bulk up on their Alley-Viper squads without dropping $40.00 apiece on 7-packs.

The auction is here and the images are below.

Now if only he’d drop the price on that Resolute Baroness…      Thanks to Ricardogasjr of for the intel.

Mysterious upcoming pre-production items on eBay

The Black Sheep Toy Store strikes again, this time with a nice batch of somewhat vintage-themed figures that look to be done up in movie style paint schemes.  Very interesting looking figures, for sure.  Click the following links to check out the auctions, and then peruse all of the images mirrored below.

There are some part swaps and paint alterations, but some interesting stuff to see, for sure.  I love the Grand Slam with the different lower legs, and the AVAC with the Resolute Trooper arms.  Some neat stuff mixed up here…

New items posted at Black Sheep Toy Store

Forgive me if this is old news, I’m starting to lose track with all of these upcoming items flying in all directions…  I believe Black Sheep Toy Store on eBay has posted a pair of new items, Resolute Baroness and the upcoming Alley-Viper from the Defense of COBRA Island 7-Pack.  The Buy it Now prices have gone up to $29.99, but the images are still of great quality, so you should definitely check out the store.

The fact that he has more than 10 available for the Resolute Baroness makes me feel a bit better about the possibility of seeing some of these figures down the road, but time will tell.  Check out the images mirrored below.

Thanks to Smokescreen from for the info.

Rise of COBRA Duke (Reactive Armor) up for sale on Black Sheep Toy Store

Wow, Black Sheep Toy Store is in the news today!  This time, actually offering something up for auction instead of just being a source for pictures.  The latest loose offering from Black Sheep is the upcoming Duke with Reactive Armor.  Maybe I’m alone in this, but I actually really love this look.  Yeah, I like variety as much as the next guy, but as a fan of Sigma 6, I’ve got an affinity for this funky power suit appearence, and this version of Duke looks pretty damn cool.  They managed to take an all black body suit and still make it visually appealing.  I’m definitely not going to be buying all of the movie stuff, not by a long shot.  But I’ll at least get the familiar cast of characters, and I’m looking forward to stocking my display shelves with these movie figures in their familiar on-screen look.

Check out the auction here, and check the mirrored images below.



New images of Rise of COBRA Destro courtosy of Black Sheep Toy Store

While the auction isn’t online yet, reports that the Black Sheep Toy Store has supplied pictures of what appears to be an upcoming Rise of COBRA Destro figure, based strongly on how the character appears on screen.  Decked out in a nice three-piece suit, and a very Chris Ecclestein like appearence, this is definitely a Destro pulled right from the silver screen.  The rumored report from HissTank is that this is a San Diego ComicCon exclusive, but as always, we need to wait for Hasbro confirmation before saying that for sure.  Images are mirrored below, courtosy of



New Resolute pictures from Black Sheep Toy Store

Everyone keep their eyes on the Black Sheep Toy Store on eBay, as it would appear some more new items may be en route to being listed there. came across some new images (or at least larger and clearer images) of various upcoming figures, which usually means they are about to appear up for auction.  Many of these pictures have been posted before, but these are much larger versions, so I’m repeating some of them, while getting stuff like Destro up for the first time.  Also get some nice pictures of an upcoming Lamprey repaint, that seems almost based on the Python Patrol version from Toys “R” Us back in the day.  A very cool look.

God I love that Destro figure.  If we don’t see that released somewhere, some how, I may just storm Pawtucket with torches and pitchforks.

Resolute pre-production items on eBay

Black Sheep Toy Store has expanded his stock from Rise of COBRA to Resolute and Defense of COBRA Island as he added a wealth of potentially upcoming figures to his eBay store.  Many of the items seen at HissTank a few days ago are now up for auction with nice, big pictures.  Of course those images will be mirrored below.

Nightly News Recap – Black Sheep Toy Store has TRU Firefly and Cover Girl

It’s been a bit quiet on the loose figures front for the Black Sheep Toy Store, but he comes through in a big way today with some new auctions up (with some great images) for the Toys “R” Us Headquarters for Heroes Firefly and Rise of COBRA Cover Girl.

Images of these two very nice looking figures have been mirrored below.  That Firefly is the BOMB.  He’ll fit in seamlessly with the Resolute universe, especially with this guy’s armor.

G.I. Joe: The Rise of COBRA carded gallery

As the Black Sheep Toy Store has been uploading new auctions, I’ve been grabbing the high quality images from those auctions, particularly the carded ones.  Here I’ve collected all carded images so far, and I gotta say the pics are awesome.  In case readers haven’t been able to tell, I’ve been drastically warming up to the movie toys and I’m really enjoying the design aspects of these figures.  Granted, I’m a Sigma 6 fan, so…

This isn’t an endorsement of the movie at all, I’m still firmly on the fence about how I think that’s going to turn out, but from a pure toy standpoint, I think Hasbro is doing some awesome stuff with these figures and I think if fans can keep an open mind there will be something for everyone in the months to come.  I can’t wait.
