Serpentor has got to be the most exciting name on this wave 8 listing! Now we don’t know if he is coming single carded, for the first time or will he come with his air chariot? In either case, he is very exciting to see on the listings! See as these ReAction figures were supposed to be Sunbow inspired, it will be interesting to see to see if he will look like the Sunbow cartoon or the vintage ARAH figure?
The Red Jackal Destro also pays homage to a vintage exclusive figure that was available in the United Kingdom and Europe around 1984 by the Palitoy toy company. He was also available packaged with the Hyena tank – a repaint of the H.I.S.S. Tank.
Cobra Skeleton Warrior Glow
This is one that eludes is as we don’t know which character this belongs to but will be for sure a wonderful glow in the dark army builder! Maybe Cobra’s version og MOTU Skeleton Warriors!
Cobra Snow Serpent
The Cobra Snow Serpent is a fan favorite and recently released in the Classified Series. The Vintage Snow Serpent was released in 1985 for the A Real American Hero line. He came with a small missile launcher, rifle, snow shoes, and a cool blue fanny pack!
The Snow Serpent was featured in the 1980’s Sunbow cartoon and went up against Alpine in one of the episodes
Daina Oktober Guard
Daina Oktober Guard is the next name on the list and a very deep cut character. Featured in the GI Joe Comic book issue #6. According to Daina | Joepedia | Fandom: “She is the one Oktober Guard member with a multitude of talents. She is a skilled helicopter pilot, a knowledgeable fixed wing pilot, a marksman, a competent diver, a brilliant tactician second to Brekhov, and probably more intelligent than most of her teammates.”
Cobra Mortal Vintage
The Cobra Mortal was one of the original vintage Plastirama Argen7 figures from Argentina. This is a deep cut if I ever saw one! The Argen7 was a way to group the 7 straight-arm characters from Argentina series 1 and series 2 figures that were completely different from those available in the US. These figures were available both in Argentina (made by Plastirama) and later, in Venezuela (made by Rubiplas).
Cobra Sabre Tooth
A repaint character based on Firefly, Cobra Sabre Tooth had a more grey, brown, and yellow camo scheme. This will make a great repaint of the Firefly figure by Reaction ,Vintage figure and Super7 ReAction Firefly shown below.
Scarlett Purple Variant & Lady Jaye Teal Variant
We can only guess that these are repaints of the original Scarlett and Lady Jaye figures. Below are some variant images of Scarlett and Lady Jaye.
