I’ll warn you right up front… the Rise of COBRA reviews are going to be pretty frenetic as I kind of scoop up figures here and there, but for better or worse, the first five figure reviews are uploaded now! Check out the brand spanking new Rise of COBRA Reviews Page with links to all of the reviews I’ve posted so far:
Overall, I’m quite impressed. There are plenty of kinks to still work out, but by and large, these figures have retained the increased mobility and articulation of the Anniversary figures, but are infinitely more “playable”, the feel more durable, and more interactive. All the benefits of the Anniversary styling, with a fraction of the drawbacks from a “toy” perspective. Yeah…I’m definitely impressed.
I think once Hasbro kinds of burns through the typical Reactive Armor look and the various shades of blacks and grays, the design aesthetic could get VERY cool, and I think the best is still to come. I’ll be looking forward to it, and I’ll be looking forward to doing the reviews for it.
