We’ve assembled a gallery of nearly 70 images to feast your eyes on, so make sure to read more below! 

The SAS (Special Air Service) is a Clandestine Covert Unit operational under the United Kingdom Special Forces.

Their motto: They can run but can’t hide. 

SAS Troopers have saved the World from Cobra on numerous occasions.

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!
