He’ll Fight For Freedom… (pt.2) — Desert Assault Squad Review

EXTREME CONDITIONS PACK (1 of 2): COBRA DESERT ASSAULT SQUAD

This review covers the first of two online exclusive multipacks both of which have hostile environment themes. The figures are mostly an amalgamation of parts from previously released figures, and many of the combinations are very creative. In my review of these figures, I will break down as much as possible where the re-used parts come from before giving my thoughts on the pros and cons of the figure as a whole.

Flamethrower Specialist — Cobra Trooper

1) Cobra Trooper — Flamethrower Specialist

  • Head: Cobra Viper (w7)
  • Body: Barbecue (w9)
  • Flamethrower/Gas Tank: Dreadnok Torch (cp w2)
  • Rifle: Cobra Officer (w2)

A great looking figure with an imaginative use of accessories. The only flaw is that the flamethrower’s cord makes it difficult to be placed in the figure’s hand, which is molded too wide to begin with so he really can’t get a firm grip on the weapon’s handle. He also looks slightly weird without the Viper’s goggles, but they wouldn’t makes sense here. And finally, he also has difficulty holding onto his rifle; I wonder if Hasbro could have used the Cobra Officer hands instead. ***
