G.I. Joe ROC Night Adder

This is one of the figures i picked up the other day from Marshalls on clearance.One of the things that i love about these ROC figures  is the feeling of realism you get after opening up the figure,looking at the on-card art and reading the characters file card.Certain figures just have a certain presence about them and this Cobra  Night Adder is one of them.After taking Night Adder out of the package i realized that he had tatoos on his arms,back and one that says “Cobra La”on his abdomen!The first thing that popped into my head was “Gangsta”!I mean the guy comes with  a  shotgun,pistol,hand knife and a friggin’   Rottweiler(who BTW should have been given a name IMO) !He really is an intimidating figure and my only gripe is that i wish his file card had more of a background story on him.

My Toy Dillema….

So things are pretty tight right now and i’m not buying as much , but yesterday i had an extra 10 bucks on me so (with the price of action figures these days) that meant that i would be limited to one figure.That’s right… one figure.Anybody who’s ever been in this position knows how difficult this decision can be with brands like Marvel Universe,G.I. Joe and other cool toy lines to choose from.I instantly narrow it down to two….G.I. Joe and Marvel Universe.Let the rationalization process begin. “I haven’t picked up any 30th ann. Joes yet but Marvel Universe just released a real cool Ice-Man that i would love to add to my collection”.Then a light turns on! Funny how the collector’s mind works sometimes, as i start to think about how i could possibly get more bang for my buck.BINGO!Marshall’s has a ton of G.I. Joe stuff ,granted it’s mostly ROC  but i still collect that line and i could possibly pick up two great looking quality figures for the price of one 30th ann./M.U.Not to mention the quality of the Marvel Universe stuff is lacking as of late with limbs coming off of figures when releasing them from the package and the quality of the plastic doesn’t compare to that of G.I. Joes IMO(more rationalizing LOL).So here it is my fellow toy collectors.Far from a copious toy haul but a lucrative one nonetheless 😉
