1991 Toxo Viper

Toxo-Viper Sludge Viper Eco Warriors GI Joe Cobra ARAH vintageI’ve always been a big fan of both Toxo Vipers and the Eco Warriors. While the original is a classic, this one is an improvement in ways. I like the colors better on this figure, and it’s much less clunky feeling. I do think the original had a nicer backpack, and the helmet just looked good too. I suppose both are nice in different ways.

Though on the topic of Toxo Vipers, the Funskool version uses the original sculpt in colors closer to these. I should take a shot of that one sometime.

    Oddly, despite their reputation, the OM02-93 Cobra Operations Manual included with the 12″ “Hall of Fame” Cobra characters includes a table of rank which lists Toxo-Vipers as the *third* highest-ranked Cobra ground forces, just below Flak Vipers and Crimson Guards, three ranks above Cobra Officers and a whopping *eight* ranks above bog-standard Viper infantry.
