That many cobras brings tears to my eyes. However, $4000 bucks is crazy. Plus, his name scares me - dreamplastic - too close to plasticdreams! :D

Besides the grammar, it appears only the best condition figures were put in front...the silver emblems look almost non-exsistent on the back rows, yet he says they are all "C-10", "Super-Mint"! Looking closely at the photos, there actually 120 Cobra Officers (20 columns x 6 rows)...and only 60 of the Cobra Officers have their weapons (Soldier dragonov sniper-rifles).

Too rich for my blood. Be better off talking to someone stationed at Kunsan or Osaun to see if they can get them at way cheaper prices.

I don't see an emblem on any past the second row it seems.. may be just my eyes though.. Either way, too rich and risky for me to look at more than a couple minutes.

How he did that without any stands is a mystery, its almost and X-file!

I'd stay away too, the joints on some of them may even be loose. Its does look like the paint gets worst as you go front to back!


i did not sell, how can i buy car i don no! Collect toys to pensive! :D

This is weird.

The MOC Cobra Officer has no symbol that I can see -> http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=2467&item=5969876994&rd=1&ssPageName=WDVW

Mabbe just the pics 2 dark.

Not sure if it's a variant or Korean Officers don't come with symbols... :D

If Korean Officers don't come with symbols, definitely has to rub off all the symbols before being able to pass them off as Korean ... :D

Definitely a nice bunch of officer to have, now just have to wait for the 1K army that's gonna be ebay to go along with them... :D

I do see logo's on the one's in the back. I think it's just the head's of the one's in front get in the way.

Is it even fair to use the grammar as a form of telling if someone's being honest, what is it like a type of phrenology? Jeez, give the guy a break.

I agree. He speaks Korean as his primary I bet. I've encountered the same thing many times when dealing with the rest of the world. With Joes or Business.

Which rifle does the Korean Officer come with? :confused: I can't tell from the carded example.

Because the first three rows of Officers all carry Dragunov Sniper Rifles (Cobra Trooper's).

No, not on his language, but on his bad feedback...

Nobody said anything about your post, look above. The post talking about how fishy it was because his grammar was bad.

What's your point?

What do you think my point is? One guy says not to trust him becuase of bad grammar? Do you think that's a fair way to judge somebody?

Well if you wanted to compare grammar, look at his other auction for the moc cobra officer. Looks like pretty good english skills on that one.

Let's say you buy it, and some issues turn up. Dunno but my Korean isn't all that good, as is his English. Good luck communicating with him afterwards...

If I don't speak enough Korean to make a flawless deal, I won't offer it in that language.

Looking at the carded one, on a REAL close view, I do see the symbol. But look at the legs on that one

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=5969876994&indexURL=1&photoDisplayType=2#ebayphotohosting

Are they all constructed like that? If so, how much would you really spend on them. Now, this is not bagging on the seller, mind you, but I am looking at how bad the manufacturer is.

As for this guy's feedback, he has three pages worth of it, and only three negatives feedbacks out of all those positive ones. Now, I don't buy on e-bay often, but that doesn't sound like such a bad guy to me. Of course, I'm still not willing to pay that much for those.:D

I won one of the carded Cobra Officers from him and it was in perfect condition--just as described. To answer a few questions I will just say that mine has a faint silver logo and the weapon is the same as the Cobra Soldier rifle from 1982 (possibly a different shade--hard to tell in the package).

Also, when I was stationed in Korea in 2002 I lived with a KATUSA for seven months (Korean Augmentee to the US Army) and his grammer was similar to the auction. When SGT Che was interacting with us his grammer was decent but when he was drinking or mad he would swear more and use broken English (much like the auction).

We use KATUSAs to translate for us when we are dealing with Korean civilians. Since all Korean males are required to either serve two years in the Korean Army or the Police it is easy for us to get their help!
