That Cobra officer looks fantastic! Love the holster for the rifle, great way of getting rid of those ugly pegs on weapons.

It's crazy that after their fantastic hasbro con presentation they still had 2 more amazing figures on deck to drop a few days later.

Yeah, they really went hard... pretty much everything that they showed looked fantastic. Highlights for me were Outback and Storm Shadow.

Both revealed figures look excellent!

Going to need 2 each...at least.

For those who have been asking, Premium pre-orders go up after the stream and it opens to everyone at 8 ET.

Going to have to nitpick the Alley Viper here...not only does the vest block the whole upper body articulation (even the waist now??), but it hangs so low that it completely defeats the purpose of the drop-down hips. He's gonna look good standing in a neutral pose on the shelf...and not much else.

EDIT: That Cobra Officer art makes me wish he came with pointing hands!

Couldn’t you use the pointing hand that came with CC?

The Trooper Officer is available for pre-order now on Pulse to Premium members - but it's limited to 1 per person. So, going to have to wait until 5 to order more elsewhere I guess.

One per customer on army builders is disappointing. At least make it two…

That's a good idea. The art shows it with two fingers, which would look better for a military character, or even a "knife-hand" gesture would be great too for the officer.

Yeah - it's a balancing act where they don't want all of the product to sell out before non-premium members get a chance, which I get. But one per customer on an army builder is frustrating. I doubt Amazon or other retail partners will have purchase limits though - so... patience is a virtue.

I guess that's why they had him posed in that weird squat.
