The G.I. Joe FSS 5 previews continue anew with a look at Cobra’s very own bird man: Raptor!
COBRA FALCONER: RAPTOR
(Based on the classic 1987 action figure!)
Includes: removable falcon headpiece, harness, whistle, winged backpack,
revolver pistol, bird staff, falcon with removable hood, and figure stand.
NOTE: All images are Photoshop representations, final product, accessories and/or colors may vary!
I can’t help it– I LOVE the character that is Raptor. He’s an accountant who dresses up in what is essentially a giant bird suit so that he can better relate to his flock of trained falcons. Seriously– what’s NOT to love about this guy? Given his rather unique look I was a bit worried as to how the Club would pull off a build that essentially requires so many non-standard parts.
I have to say– I’m pleasantly surprised! There’s the repurposed ghillie suit of the PoC Jungle Viper, the clawed feet of the comic pack Resolute Destro, and much of the gear of the “desert nomad” PoC Zartan. However, there’s also a new head cowl that really replicated the original 1987 design. Not bad, GIJCC. Not bad at all…
Now, bring on Scoop and Salvo!!!
