    Help Identifying Characters


    I recently received an awesome 1980s GI Joe collection that I'm sorting through and I came across a few characters that I can seem to identify.

    I'm not sure who the guy on the far left is and I'm not sure who the red guy is with the blue chest plate. I have one that is complete and then two that appear to be a mixture of a cobra commander and a red guy. Can you help me identify these and any recommendations on how to swap parts to complete the cobra commander and red guy?

    Looks like whoever had these figures before you took them apart and switched the body parts around. The figure on the left is a Cobra Officer body with Wild Weasel's head and arms, for example.

    Here's what you have from left to right:

    Figure one:

    Head and arms:

    Torso, Waist, and legs:

    Figure two:

    Head, left arm, waist, and legs:

    Torso and right arm:

    Figure 3:

    Head, left arm, waist, and torso:

    Right arm and torso:

    Figure four:

    Swap the parts around from the second and third figure to make a Cobra Commander and a HISS Driver. Also, note that the blue parts from the first figure pictured could be from a version 1 and not a 1.5, but I don't think that can be determined without the arms where the variance is present.

    Awesome, I really appreciate the detailed replied. I've learned a lot the last 2 weeks and it's been a fun little journey. I feel pretty appreciative to have been handed down such an awesome set.

    An awesome set indeed! They look to be in really nice condition. And, you even have the very valuable straight-armed, first ever Cobra Commander with the “Mickey Mouse” Cobra emblem.
