JBL reviews the new G.I. Joe Zombie Patrol two-pack– featuring the reissue of the highly sought-after Zombie Viper!
Our server migration is finally complete and almost everything seems to be working on the back end. (FINALLY!) As such, it’s time to get back to business around here when it comes to reviews! For the new crop of 50th Anniversary product I’ll be tackling some of the reissue sets solo. Chris and I will team up for the new release figure sets.
Case-in-point: the Zombie Patrol two-pack!
This set was initially released during my self-imposed hiatus from the online community. (I pretty much took off the time arom Rise of Cobra through Retaliation.) The Zombie Viper was part of the 30th Anniversary line which weaved the notion of the mysterious Compound Z throughout several waves. The figures proved to be a hit with fans but were challenging to find at retail and now command some solid prices on the secondary market. Thankfully, Hasbro listened to the fans and the Zombie Patrol two-pack was released in November at Toys R Us and BigBadToyStore.com.
Is this set worth all of the hype? Are the Zombie Vipers all that they’re cracked up to be? Didn’t people get enough of them the first time around?
