If you all remember, Super7 surprised us with an incredible display at their 2023 SDCC booth this year with a spectacular scene of the GI Joe Reaction Cobra Snake Mothership & Trubble Bubbles! They did not comment on the Mothership being in the display, nor did they confirm or deny that it was coming to the ReAction line, but it all left us wondering, was this a cool custom piece that was cooked up for SDCC? Or was this incredible vehicle coming to the GI Joe ReAction Line? If you recall, the Mothership can be seen in the opening sequence of Season 1 of the 1980’s GI Joe Sunbow Cartoon Series! It is flying over the joes, deploying a ton of Trubble Bubbles, only to be shot down in the end by GI Joe! Now Super7 has confirmed that is will be coming in October and the time has come for the preorder this amazing aircraft!

So even if you aren’t into buying the 5 POA ReAction figures, this Mothership can make a wonderful addition to your vintage GI Joe collection!

October 6, 2023 UPDATE: Major announcement coming Oct 12th
It looks like both the Masters of the Universe Eternia’s Choice Fan Vote Crowdfund project and this Super7 Mothership will both be launching their crowdfund projects on October 12th! According to Super7 on Instagram “Cobra operatives! Your next mission commences on October 12th with the arrival of our latest magnificent creation! No Joes allowed!” With fans who collect both MOTU and GI Joe, is this the best idea to have two crowdfund projects competing against each other? We will see how this plays out, in the meantime, strap yourself in for October 12th!
October 1, 2023 UPDATE: Toy Fair 2023 Booth Images and Details
Toy Fair 2023 is in full swing and thanks to cobracommanderguy for posting pics of this amazing display! This display is very similar to the one we saw at SDCC 2023 but this time, Cobra Commander is sitting atop the behemoth aircraft. In an interview with Pixel Dan, Brian Flynn mentioned that we will the long awaited inside of the Mothership at New York Comic Con 2023, which is slotted to happen on October 12 to 15, 2023.
The size and scale of this Mothership is off the charts! From above, we can see the detail from the rear of the craft as well as the front.
As we reported earlier in late September 2023, the Cobra Mothership will have removable panels revealing an entire playset inside.
Here is a close up of the Trubble Bubble and you can see how the figures will sit inside the small vehicle. With a slight bend to the legs, a ReAction figure looks mighty comfy and this harkens back to the older style Star Wars vehicles as the figures did not bend in the knees back then.
Here is the QR code to scan, which will bring you to the Super7 website with more details on the Mothership when they become availble.
September 29, 2023 UPDATE: Removable Panels and Inside View
As we reported last week, the Cobra Mothership will have removable panels and we finally get a tease as to what is inside the mother of all Cobra ships!
It’s great to finally get to look at some of the inside views of the Cobra Mothership. You can see the gunner seats on each side, a huge Cobra symbol inside the command module, and, in the back, space for two Cobra Flight Pods, as seen in the SDCC display.
UPDATE 09/25/23: Leaked Mothership Details
According to an anonymous source, the new Super7 Cobra Mothership will come with 2 flight pods packed in with it and 2 commander figures. We are not sure which characters these “Commander figures” are referring to, but there was an unannounced Cobra Viper figure standing on the top of the Mothership at the display at SDCC 2023, so maybe that is what they are referring too? It will also have a jail cell and a command module. The hatches on top will open up to reveal the playset inside. The source also said that this is likely to be a crowd project as it is a large vehicle akin to the size of the Hasbro Star Wars Ghost. With a project this big, Super7 can’t take the risk to simply produce a bunch of them, so mostly they will have it made to order or be a crowdfund to guarantee a minimum quantity order.
- Will come with 2 Trubble Bubble Flight Pods
- Will have a Jail Cell
- Will have a Command Module
- Flaps will open up to reveal playset inside
- Likely be a crowdfund project
According to Super7 on Instagram,
Sunbow Cartoon Series
The Cobra Mothership can be seen at the opening of the GI Joe 1980’s Sunbow Cartoon Series! The Cobra Mothership is featured in the opening of Season1 – The Mass Device and is flying over a squad of Joes, while deploying a ton of Trubble Bubbles into the sky! It’s obvious that Super7 was recreating this opening sequence with their display!
SDCC 2023 Reveal
Super7 has an incredible display booth at this year’s 2023 San Diego Comic Con, and GI Joe was well represented with the GI Joe Reaction Cobra Snake Mothership & Trubble Bubbles! As we mentioned above, this Mothership comes from the opening sequence of the 80’s Sunbow Cartoon! It can be seen flying over the Joes, deploying Trubble Bubbles all over the place! The mothership is eventually taken down by GI Joe! The Trubble Bubbles look incredible as well, and seat the figures very nicely. I would assume a 3 3/4″ O-Ring figure could sit very comfortably in the seat as well! For those of you who are not familiar with the ReAction line by Super7, they are 3 3/4″ figures with 5 points of articulation, and they are supposed to be a “what if Kenner were to make these back in the day” type design. They are not for everyone with a whomping $20 price tag each, but they sure are alot of fun! This GI Joe ReAction line in particular is supposed to be inspired mainly by the GI Joe 1980’s Sunbow cartoon series and also the comic books.
The Trubble Bubbles seat the cobra troopers nicely and I can easily see using them for your vintage 3 3/4″ GI Joe A Real American Hero O-Ring figures as well! This is the first full size vehcile offering we have seen from Super7 in their GI Joe ReAction line, so I hope this opens the door for more opportunies!
Here are some great shoys of the Trubble Bubble and a brand new figure, a Viper!! They look absolutely wondereful!
Special Thanks to Tyson Gabriel for sending these additonal photos of the GI Joe ReAction Display!
