Marauder Task Force Delay!

We received bad news last night from the Marauder “Gun-Runners”.  Unfortunately there was a mix up at the factory, and they didn’t receive the full shipment of wave 1 repaints, so they won’t be able to ship them on time.

Hey 814 Valtaskers!

We received the shipment today that was to have the new male MTF colors..but there was a major mix-up on the order. We ONLY received a very small quantity of samples of some of the new male MTF colors and not the full order. Yeah, we were also very surprised and quite upset. We’re working to find out what went wrong and get the originally planned CORRECT items as soon as possible, but we won’t be able to ship the new Male color Kickstarter orders on Friday 11/6 as planned. We’ll keep you all in the loop and hope to have the situation corrected quickly.

Thanks again for your support,


As an avid fan of the Marauder Task Force figures, I’m fully confident that it will be worth the wait when I have these figures in hand!

Final Week to Support The USO with the FINEST!

It’s no secret that we here at CobraIsland love The Finest. The Ladies of The Finest maybe even more so!




With that being said we are firm believers that all Vipers and Vipettes should have one of their 2016 Calendars hanging some where displayed with prominence in their homes. If that is to happen though they need YOUR support! In supporting them not only are you helping an amazing Calendar be achieved and earning potential awesome perks of being a contributor you are also supporting and donating to the USO.


“As you know by now, the Girls of the Finest charity calendar is no ordinary pin-up calendar. All your favorite female characters (plus a few twists) will be portrayed here – 12 months of our amazing female costumers photographed exclusively for this calendar!

As passionate as we are about G.I. Joe, we also know a good cause when we see one. The Finest is honored for the opportunity to partner with the USO, a nonprofit organization that has supported America’s troops and their families since 1941. One hundred percent of the net proceeds earned from this campaign will go to the USO.

This year’s cause is near and dear to our hearts. A significant portion of Finest members are active duty troops and veterans. Many of our own members and their families have directly benefited from the USO over the years, so being able to partner with this historic organization and give something back is an amazing opportunity!

What better way to come together as a fan community and support the Real American Heroes of the U.S. military and their families!

We Need YOU!”

Check out some of the cool Perks!
