I loved the article!!!! I have an original Viper at home and I go to the local Walmart every morning before work and the Cobra Viper for the strangest reason is the only character that is left on the shelf. So, as a huge fan I do the army buliding to and have been buying the vipers off the shelf. The Cobra Vipers started to appear at the Walmarts in Oregon about three weeks ago. Now, I have 22 of them and I want more. I wish that there were more reveiws like this!!!! I just started using this site 3 years ago and decided to be a member soon. Keep up the great you guys,..... know is half the battle!!!

I appreciate Nick's willingness to say that a figure isn't good. Reading the same drivvle over and over at Master Collector from Wheeler about how great these toys are gets boring. I think Hasbro must pay him to give the figures a good review no matter how bad they are.

I think Hasbro tried to meet collectors half way by allowing these goggles to come off so you can use them or not. I find them to be annoying because they won't stay on the helmet at all. They fall off with the slightest bump. I think kids will be losing these very soon after opening the figure.

I have no idea why every one has a problem with the goggles. I've had the figure since Friday and I have had no problem keeping the goggles on. I even dropped it for a distance on over six feet and the goggles did NOT come off.

I haven't opened mine but it looks like his right wrist isn't that bad compared to the left.
People keep saying that he falls back because of the ankles. However they never say if they have the backpack on or not. That does make a difference in weight distribution.
