I’m a bit conflicted on this one. On the one hand, I love the fact that The Terror Drome has gotten their hands on a nice allotment of unproduced Pursuit of Cobra figures, then made some very in depth updates to their image galleries. But on the other hand, the more I see these detailed images, the sadder I get over the fact that some of this stuff won’t hit retail, especially a figure as nice as “City Strike” Scarlett.
Sure, the base figure is simply Resolute Scarlett, painted up in darker colors and with an updated Rachel Nichols head. But what kills me here is the gear. Even though the major piece of equipment with Scarlett, the flight pack, is one we’ve seen a couple of times already, adding that oxygen mask, that sword/sheath combination, and those incredible bladed tonfa swords makes for a whole new look for the Joe covert ops specialist. She fits in so well with the Pursuit of Cobra City Strike theme… a damn shame that she’s destined for the scrap heap, but even if you can’t have her, you can enjoy the terrific images. I’ve mirrored them below, but you really should check out The Terror Drome directly.
Along with Scarlett, they’ve also posted a pretty slick set of images for the unreleased Jungle Assault Cobra Commander. Even though he comes with the same fishbowl head sculpt, the addition of the jacket adds some nice bulk to the figure, I really like the gray color variations, and that crazy robotic bug is too cool for words. Sure, if this guy hit retail, he probably wouldn’t have been among my favorites, but he’s got such a unique look, I find myself really loving the figure and accessories, and hoping that some day I can get my hands on him as well.
You can see some mirrored images below, but also check out the gallery at The Terror Drome.
These figures weren’t the only showcases either… awesome new images of City Strike Beachhead, Jungle Assault Duke (Tatum and non-Tatum), as well as Quick Kick are also there as well. I just wanted to showcase two of my personal favorites.
A big kudos to The Terror Drome for getting images of these out to the fans. A great look into what “could have been”.
