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:
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.
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.
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.
