This Cobra Jungle Viper* figure is among the G.I. Joe 3 3/4″ figures announced at Toy Fair 2010, which is visiting New York City this week to highlight all the latest Chinese-made lead-based products for children.
Obviously, neither practicality nor stealth is priority #1 in the Cobra’s version of jungle warfare. Otherwise, the Commander wouldn’t be saddling his soldiers with small, ramshackle huts made of artificial palm fronds as they’re trying to make their way through the thick undergrowth.
If this is Cobra’s idea of jungle camouflage, I think I’m beginning to understand how those G.I. Joe meat heads always manage to win.
* Did you perhaps think it was a lame reboot of Spider-Man’s nemesis, The Vulture?
