View Full Version : Wal-mart Neo Viper variant? **PIC added 2/10/05**

I just picked up a couple of these in a trade. Two have the red cobra emblem on the chest. The third has a silver emblem. Too good of a paint job to be a custom. Anyone ever heard of one of these? I will post some pics tonight...

The silver logo ones were sold in lots of 4 or 5 on ebay from a dealer in China. It isn't a custom, they should probably be considered a preproducion variation that the China guy got access to. Perhaps some might have made it to the carded stage. Can you please see if you can ask your trade friend if he got them off ebay or if he remembers buying ALL his WalMart Neo-Vipers from Walmart shelves.

Are they still on the card or loose? Either way I am interested in seeing a photo as well.

I don't know what I was thinking. I thought I could post them on this thread. Anyone know where I can post these pics so people can view them??? Thanks!

Duh! OK, I don't know why I didn't get that.

I've only got one, but it's the regular paint, never seen that before.

Does it appear that the red paint was left off of it or was it actually painted another color? Has anyone else seen this one before? I wouldn't mind getting one myself.

As I mentioned above, they are not customs. These are preproduction figures. Some might have been accidentally released on card, but it seems people have gotten these from ebay in lots. The guy must have ran out since I haven't seen any available for months. But here is a pic.
