'Childhood' from PaulS: Coooooobraaa!


When I was a kid, I loved my Action Force/GI Joe figures, but I never actually owned any of the basic Cobra infantry



Before Cobra started to have more specialized personnel, there were the Cobra Troopers. These men served as the basic infantrymen of Cobra. Each man swore absolute loyalty to Cobra Commander. While serving as the infantrymen of the organization, they are also cross-trained to be proficient in least two other support skills. The lot of what makes up the Trooper forces are mercenaries, criminals and people who are angry at the world who have taken up Cobra's offer of wealth and power.



The basic Cobra infantry slowly got replaced in the comics with the more armoured Vipers, but these guys are still an iconic part of a Cobra strike force.


In my rush to take the photo, I forgot to peel off the bottom layer of protective material from the bases, hence the brown layer... doh!
