GI Joe Renegades Cobra Trooper Infantry Guy

The GI Joe Renegades Cobra Trooper is one of the best modern renditions of a Cobra Trooper in years, because of its simplicity. Colors, helmet, mask, and gear, all are at appropriate levels for making a quality Cobra Trooper Infantry Guy (CTIG).

Its also neat to add that the Renegades cartoon toys fits right in with any of the other figures, so that you don't have to feel weird in combining teams. The weaponry is the only thing that seems to stand out different, as its rectangular and laser like.

I was tempted to troop build this guy, but GI Joe prices have sky rocketed from an awesome $6.99 to $10.99 in my area, making it real hard to decide. I may just get "one" more, and call it good. By the looks of the future, figures won't be getting much better than this anyways.

This guy begs for his own government issued motorcycle patrol car.  I can believe Snake Eyes going over 210mph, but getting caught? Wow, this trooper is really elite.

Yeah the price points on these really kill me making me stay away from them at lest for now.

yah, they do go on sale more from time to time with good old regular prices, but that doesn't guarantee you'll get the figure you want when you have to wait.

I should add, by getting a case earlier this year, the figures round out to 6.99 I think.

ah Dont you miss the days when a GI Joe figure was $2.99 or even less if they where on sale...These are nice figures but Im going to have to wait till they start showing up in the thrift stores to get them.
