Archive: Cobra Trooper - Infantry (G.I. Joe: Renegades)

December 19, 2011

The Cobra Trooper was released in the winter of 2011 as part of the third wave of figures in the G.I. Joe 30th Anniversary line. The 30th Anniversary line celebrates 30 years since the release of the modern, 3-3/4-inch G.I. Joe action figure. As part of the celebration, Hasbro not only included figures of classic characters from the 1982 A Real American Hero comic and television series, but also those from the G.I. Joe: Renegades animated series.

Not to be confused with the Cobra Trooper released in the first wave of the 30th Anniversary line, this Cobra Trooper is based on the infantry troops as they appeared in the G.I. Joe: Renegades animated series. Since the animated Cobra Troopers have exposed faces, an alternate head sculpt with a mask that veils the face, much like the balaclava of its predecessors, was also included.

Release Date:
Retail Price: $6.99
Accessories: alternate masked head, flak vest, knee pads, handcuffs, baton, plasma rifle, display stand with Cobra logo (COBRA TROOPER)

Did You Know? Hasbro planned to release the Cobra Trooper with a re-decoed version of the riot shield accessory that was included with the Pursuit of Cobra Shock Trooper figure, but the accessory was omitted, as were a number of accessories with many other figures in the 30th Anniversary line.

Cobra Troopers are the secret army of the Cobra organization. They have no names, and their faces are hidden behind masks. They guard Cobra buildings, perform acts of sabotage and destruction, and hunt for the renegades who are trying to reveal the truth about Cobra and its mysterious leader.
