Finally got my hands on the Cobra B.A.T and Cobra Snow Trooper.
These two figures were really high on my "must get" list.
One minor grumble is that these 2 figures were not released under the 25th anniversary card which looks better with their silver border and silver GI Joe name.
Once when I am not too lazy and busy, I will do up more holders so I can display them onto my GI Joe wall!
Info on Cobra B.A.T
B.A.T.s are the perfect Cobra troopers. They never question orders, complain about the chow, shirk duty, or surrender. They require no leave time, sick pay or benefits of any kind, and they are cheap and easy to replace. On the other hand, B.A.T.s do not react very well to changes in field conditions, nor do they discriminate between targets. They will shoot at anything that moves, be it friend or foe. They also have an unfortunate tendency to burst into flames when hit from behind.
If they went through all the trouble to create a fighting android, why can't they go an extra step to make sure that they can discriminate between friend and foe. Seriously how hard can that be as compared to building a android...LOL
Cobra Snow Serpent
Info on Cobra Snow Serpent
Snow Serpents are the Arctic Specialist branch of the Cobra EEL unit (Cobra frogmen). They must undergo the same rigorous training program as Cobra EEL troops with the addition of a six month cold weather course somewhere above the Arctic Circle. They are considered the best of the best! Other aspects of their training include airborne operations (under arctic conditions), anti-tank procedures and the use of snowshoes, skis and kayaks.
