Massive update to the Rise of COBRA Toy Superpage

Well, SDCC was fun and everything, but getting it all sorted out and organized was a PITA of the highest level.  Regardless, the Toy Superpage should now be up to date (I think…  :shifty:)

This is what I did, this go ’round:

  • Added listings and images for Wal-Mart Battle Stations
  • Added listings and images for Toys “R” Us Troop Builder 5-Packs
  • Added listings and images for TRU Snow Serpent & Bench-Press
  • Added listings and images for the white coat Doctor and unmasked Arctic Storm Shadow Variant
  • Added listings and images for latest round of speculation (Duke, Ripcord, Desert-Viper, Storm Shadow, Resolute Snake Eyes)
  • Separated Waves 2 & 3 of the Alpha vehicles and added images pertaining to them

I think that’s it.  If anyone finds anything I’ve missed, let me know, but I believe I’ve managed to capture everything.  Still refining the release dates and such, but most images have the tags in them with the release dates on them.  Check it out here.

Think the Rise of COBRA Baroness figure is fugly? So does Sienna Miller…

Many a fan has wondered exactly what the hell went wrong with Hasbro’s face-scanning equipment when The Baroness figure was first revealed, since it looked absolutely nothing like the normally beautiful Sienna Miller.  Most other face sculpts all look okay, but hers?  Not so much.

Turns out, the actress has noticed.  Speaking with the New York Daily News, she had this to say:

“My doll is cross-eyed and has the biggest chin you have ever seen…”  “…She looks sort of possessed.”
