Black Major Classic and Mouse Trooper Review Gallery

We continue our Black Major review galleries this week with a look at another set of recent releases, this time focused on the Trooper mold. Our next in the series brings us not one, but two classic “Cobra Blue” offerings, the Classic Trooper and Special Edition Mouse Trooper! 

The Classic Blue Trooper is one of the nameless faces that pledge allegiance to the Cobra Organization. They come from all different walks of life, with one unified goal – Total Global Domination.

The warriors known simply as “Mouse Troopers” are no where as tame as their name suggests. For over 40 years their Commander has been the stuff of legend; Very few have heard of him and even fewer have seen him. Recently, he allowed his troopers to reveal their presence to the World. The devastation left in their wake led one foolish report to say “These guys don’t Mickey Mouse around.” Truly and understatement. No one knows what the symbol across their chests truly means, but the name stuck and strikes fear in to anyone that knows what a “Mouse Trooper” is capable of. 

Both Troopers come with a Rifle, Back Pack and Figure Stand. The Mouse Trooper also comes with a fantastic full-color card featuring art on one side, filecard on the back from Kraken Kards! All this week we’ll be focusing on the re-imagined incarnations of the much loved trooper. All figures showcased this week are currently available to the public via our good friend Brian Kossin, so if you’d like to add these figures to your collection, make sure to hit him up!

In the absence of 3 3/4 Joe product on the shelf, The Major continues to keep excitement alive and the fan base enthused with his 3 3/4 0-ring ARAH Style offerings!

The Letal Troopers answer to none other than Letal himself and are considered some of the most brutal Guerrilla fighters South America has ever seen. As part of the Demolitions team, they charge the battlefield before and after Letal unleashes a furious assault of Frag grenades on G.I.Joe! 

All this week we’ll be focusing on the re-imagined incarnations of the much loved trooper. All figures showcased this week are currently available to the public via our good friend Brian Kossin, so if you’d like to add these figures to your collection, make sure to hit him up!

Black Major Techno Trooper and Techno Officer Review Gallery

We continue our Black Major review galleries this week with a look at another set of recent releases, this time focused on the Trooper mold. Our next in the series is a special two for Tuesday treat, as we take a closer look at the Techno Trooper and Techno Officer! 

When Techno-Vipers are called on a seemingly impossible mission to provide maintenance, the Techno-Troopers are sent in first to secure the area and to provide cover for the Techno-Vipers. They then serve to provide technical support to the platoon. In most instances it is the duty of the Techno Officer to extract personal and/or valuable Top Secret equipment or intel at all costs. Never have they allowed these items to fall into enemy hands. The Techno Troopers are used mostly as grunts to carry all sorts of equipment and assist in repairs. Their true purpose is to be decoys and cannon fodder, pawns used to ensure that the Techno-Vipers are successful even at the cost of their very lives. 

Both the Techno Trooper and Techno Officer come with a weapon, back pack and figure stand.  They also include an amazing full color character art card backs by Kraken Kards! We’ve shared a gallery of over 50 images that you can feast your eyes on by reading more below. 

All this week we’ll be focusing on the re-imagined incarnations of the much loved trooper. All figures showcased this week are currently available to the public via our good friend Brian Kossin, so if you’d like to add these figures to your collection, make sure to hit him up!

After a brief hiatus in 2006 that allowed the G.I. Joe brand to flourish in other areas, G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero was reintroduced in a new stylistic direction that is still predominately used today! Not only did this reintroduction allow fans to revisit some of their most cherished icons within the G.I. Joe mythos, they were introduced to new characters that are now known and loved.

This Rank & File Volume 1.1 is an update to the introductory guide in a series that fully displays every G.I. Joe action figure produced between the 25th Anniversary and today, complete with every accessory and variation produced. Volume 1.1 begins with an introduction to G.I. Joe, discussing its 1964 origins all the way up to the Real American Hero line in its first two generations, and then fully explores the 25th Anniversary and Resolute 4″ action figures series. To top it off, every vehicle and play set released in the 4″ era has been documented and every easily removable piece has been individually photographed—ensuring collector completion.

Don’t forget, you can pick up other volumes in the Rank & File series directly from Mr. James Kavanaugh Jr. via the R.A.H.C. Guide website! Make sure to share your thoughts on the reprint with us right here on the Cobra Island Forums
