HissTank.com reviews Rise of COBRA Wave 1 Heavy Duty

Destro from HissTank has posted a review of the Wave 1 Heavy Duty from the upcoming Rise of COBRA toyline.  A pretty typical offering with a mixed bag of good and bad…I am warming up to the movie toys, but this was pretty high on my list until the review, now I’m not so sure.  I may just wait and get the uniformed one when he finally shows up:

Kudos to Destro for getting his grubby mits on this thing early.  Nice to see some good pics and some insight!  Click here to check out the thread with a ton of new pictures.

Sideshow Storm Shadow Pre-Order information and picture Gallery posted

Sideshow Collectibles has posted a bunch of pertinent information regarding the pre-order for the Sideshow Storm Shadow debuting this Thursday at Midnight.  They have also shown off an impressive photo gallery which I have mirrored below.  This is the information regarding the pre-order:

Remember that the Priority Pre-Order event for our new G.I. Joe Storm Shadow 12-inch Figure begins Friday, February 27t, at 10:00 AM (Pacific Time). For those of you who can’t wait to see the full figure, we’re posting the product gallery and info a bit early (see below).

The Sideshow Exclusive edition of this figure is limited to only 1,000 pieces worldwide and will only be available direct from SideshowCollectibles.com. The Exclusive edition features an extra accessory: the Nunchucks Weapon! The Exclusive will be sold during the Priority Pre-Order event on a first come, first served basis so make sure you are qualified for Priority Pre-Order before Thursday, February 26th at 11:59 PM (PT).

A regular edition, without the exclusive accessory, will be available for Pre-Order immediately after the Exclusive edition sells through. (Please note, the Wait List feature for the Exclusive will not be available until after the ’streamlined’ ordering process is complete.)

All of these details are also available at Sideshow’s site.

Storm Shadow is certainly following the trend set by Snake Eyes, COBRA Commander, and the COBRA Trooper.  A very impressive looking 12″ rendition of COBRA’s 1st Ninja Assassin.  Very cool.

I’ve also mirrored the pics below:

I’m not one for jumping on these Asian early birds, but I snagged these two figures.  I can’t really explain it, but for some reason I find these two figures appealing, even in their never-ending grayness.  The Officer is considerably cooler than the Trooper with all of the layered armor on his arms and legs, but I really love the tooling of both figures.  The Trooper’s weapons are pretty much useless, but the figure itself is neat.  I think these make for some pretty cool preview figures, though I don’t see myself going overboard on the movie stuff in general.  Thanks to Hicks Royel of HissTank.com for the lead on this one.
