GeneralsJoes Reviews G.I. Joe Kre-O Checkpoint Alpha and Serpent Armor set

G.I. Joe Kre-O week continues with a look at the Checkpoint Alpha build set and the Serpent Armor vs. VAMP build set as well!  I was struggling a bit with how to review these, since I really don’t have a Lego background, but some friends of mine just advised that I review them as a G.I. Joe fan would, so that’s kind of what I went with.

You might notice I’m ironing out some of the review kinks.  I don’t have box images or sticker images necessarily…some of those will come later.  I was battling an eager 7 year old who wanted to jump right into these things.  So you can either check out my G.I. Joe Kre-O Review Page, or the direct links below:

Target Exclusive “Serpent Armor w/ Viper Commando” Reviewed!

Umm… what the hell?  Did I forget to post this?

As I was preparing the Past and Present set for review, I noticed that I had no link up on the Rise of Cobra Review Page for the Serpent Armor set that I reviewed like…I dunno…months ago?  Did I forget to post it?

I have no idea.  If I did, well, it’s posted now.  That’s a damn shame.  I love the set, and I figured I’d told everyone how much I loved it by now.  Go buy it if you can find any left.

Wave 2 Target exclusive mini-vehicles posted online, though not yet for sale

In a move that seems to indicate that we’ll see these vehicles for sale online shortly, Target.com has posted entries for their second wave of highly anticipated exclusive mini-vehicles, including the Serpent Armor and Rocket Pack.  Check out the links below.

Thanks to m6d for the information!

Alexx is at it again… Serpent Armor w/ Viper Commando

Holy crap what a difference a little color alteration makes.  I’m getting pretty sick and tired of the same ole black and silver Neo-Vipers, but Hasbro gives the “Viper Commando” in the Serpent Armor set a black head with red eyes, and it gets whole new life.  Damn what a cool looking version of the way-too-abundant Neo-Viper.  Add that to the fact that he comes with a great looking black and silver SNAKE armor, and you get a win all around.

In fact, if you get your hands on a 25th Anniversary Stinger, a Heatseek Missile set, and this Serpent Armor, you get the start of a very awesome looking black/red color scheme COBRA strike squad…  but I’ll let Alexx’s always funny pictures speak for themselves.  You can see the thread on JBL here, too.
