Python Patrol Crimson Guard

Hasbro is coming out in full force with the Python Patrol and, according to Joepedia, “The Python Patrol was introduced in issue #88 of the original Marvel Comics run. Loyal to the imposter Cobra Commander, Python Patrol’s technology was developed by Dr. Mindbender in order to help Destro’s cousin Darklon increase his company’s armament sales. Despite their eventual defeat in a minor border skirmish, the technology proved successful enough for Cobra to continue developing. They later appeared in issues #99, #100, and Special Missions #28. The same year Python Patrol released Hasbro contracted DiC to produce a new G.I. Joe cartoon. The Operation: Dragonfire mini-series came after a two year hiatus of no new cartoons. It followed the Sunbow continuity. Unhappy with Serpentor’s leadership, the Baroness and Gnawghyde kidnap Cobra Commander, who is still a snake as result of being exposed to mutating spores in Cobra-La. Upon discovering an ancient mystical energy called Dragonfire, they use a neanderthal focusing mask and Cobra sonic technology to return him to humanoid form. Upon being restored, the Commander uses the mask and Dragonfire focusing technology to create the Python Patrol. Afterwards, they help Cobra Commander regain control of Cobra from Serpentor.”

Python Patrol Crimson Guard 1989 Vintage Figure

According to the file card, “The PYTHON CRIMSON GUARD is the creme de la creme of shock troopers. All Crimson Guardsmen met be college graduates and in top physical condition. The Python Crimson Guard is a master at infiltration and sabotage. His function is to spy on his fellow vipers and report all violations of Cobra policy to the Python Patrol commander.”

“This guy is too precious to be wasted on the conventional battlefield. He is usually dispersed throughout the country, assuming an apparently normal appearance and lifestyle. Watch out! That friendly new neighbor of yours just might have a snake skin Python Patrol uniform hanging in his closet…”

Artcic BAT

We previously covered leaked images of the Arctic BAT in our Arctic BAT GI Joe Classified Series Packaging Leak article. Looks like Hasbro is changing up the BAT head sculpt in a killer way (pun intended) and he is armed to the teeth! The box art is absolutely amazing and this new head sculpt for the BAT is freakin killer! Well today, it was officially announced and we have in hand production and official images for you, plus where to buy! Armed for an arctic mission, he is armed with a chainsaw and a sniper rifle. He has a polorized lens for his googles. He also has a fidelity sci-fi lens on his helmet, new chest piece with all sorts of pouches on it, and all the previous BAT parts fits with him! This is a fan channel and specialty retailer exclusive.

Here we can see some of the in hand images that Emily and Lenny showed off today.

Arctic BAT Tease

In following in true Masters of the Universe Origins fashion with teasing figures that are coming to the line, Snow Job has some cameos by some interesting Cobra Soldiers. The Arctic BAT’s are seen in the in the background in Snow Job’s official image, and they look amazing!

Unlike the Crimson BAT, which was a repaint of the first release of the BAT, this version looks like it has some extra pouches and a larger belt! It is hard to see but it looks like the other BAT has his chest plate removed, revealing a gray paint app underneath.

Arctic BAT

Arctic B.A.T. was released in the “Arctic Assault” set as part of the 50th Anniversary figures in 2014. The set also included Snow Job, so it is not uncommon to see these two figures paired together.

Tele Viper with Flight Pod (Trubble Bubble)

The Tele Viper and Flight Pod was the coolest reveal of the day! I can see people buying multiple ones of these. The Tele Viper comes with 3 heads, and comes with a VR headset for inflight optics! Comes with sonic rifle with sci-fi backpack, and also includes a cool data pad on his wrist as well. The flight pod has a very retro vibe, with new details and an update to the vintage design. It comes with has removeable rockets that could port blast effects. Can you also remove the dog bones off the sides, the windshield lifts up, and it has cool 1980’s screen graphics on the little display screen. The bottom gun is on a ball peg, and even includes a seat belt for the figure.
