G.I. Joe Zombie Initiative Reviews – Cobra Forces

g.i. joe zombie initiative cobra forces

JBL’s G.I. Joe Zombie Initiative review continues as we count down the days to Halloween!

This week, we’ve covered the ECO-Force and the Zombie Hunters but today we head into a darker corner of the Zombie Initiative.  It’s an area full of mad scientists, evil soldiers, and, of course, the animated dead!  While the G.I. Joe forces in the set are tasked with finding a cure or containment of the Compound Z infected, Cobra has only one goal – to spread the Zombie Initiative as far as they can!  Only when the infected have weakened the populace will Cobra make its move!

Check out the new reviews of the Cobra Lab Rat, Repulsor & Dawg, the Toxo-Vipers, and the Toxo-Zombies!  They’re all posted in the G.I. Joe Collector’s Club Review Index!

Plus, check back tomorrow as Chris and I round out the week with the Zombie Initiative souvenir extras!

Also, just a reminder that the Zombie Initiative boxed set is still available at the G.I. Joe Collector’s Club store!

G.I. Joe Convention Toxo-Vipers Previewed!

As the 2014 G.I. Joe Convention draws ever nearer the Collector’s Club continues to tease fans with images from this year’s exclusive “Zombie Initiative” convention set.  Today’s reveal is none other than the Toxo-Vipers!

G.I. Joe Collector's Convention Toxo-Viper

The Toxo-Vipers made their debut in 1988 and saw a single update in 1991.  These environmental polluters spread the Plasma-Tox compound during their heyday and now have seemingly converted over to the dissemination of the dreaded Compound Z!  Heavily inspired by the second (and some might say “more iconic” look), this figure features a removable helmet — which only makes me wonder: WHAT IS UNDERNEATH IT? The rest of the body would seem to be made up using the torso of the PoC Arctic Destro, the arms of the 30th Airtight, and the legs of the 30th Techno-Viper.  Simply brilliant work by Boss Fight Studio!

Overall, a solid addition to the G.I. Joe Convention set!

The Cobra Toxo-Vipers come complete with everything shown.
