Hasbro Pulse has a brand new article posted – an interview with designer Bobby Vala. The subject? The Cobra Missile Command Headquarters!
I’m not going to lie– I LOVE the Cobra Missile Command Headquarters. First, I ranted about it here on JBL. In addition, I raved about it over on Just Another G.I. Joe Show. It’s been a “Holy Grail” item for me for years and this year’s convention exclusive release was essentially a dream come true. (Save for its limited availability- but that’s a story for another time.) Yet, I found myself wondering “Why this playset? Why now?”
In a rare opportunity, this admin was able to sit down and discuss this iconic playset and the process of its reconstruction with Hasbro designer Bobby Vala. He discusses the process of recreating this iconic piece of A Real American Hero history as well as the process of updating the included figures to modern specs. Bobby’s passion for this project shines through in every answer. As a result, it’s obvious that this was truly a labor of love!
