G.I. Joe - Pursuit of Cobra - Croc Master
It's been a long time since I've seen any new figures from the G.I. Joe - Pursuit of Cobra
line on my store shelves. It's a shame, too, since this line started out so strong, and with so much collector interest and demand. Sadly the same pattern that we keep seeing with Hasbro and with retailers happened once again - too many of the early cases were ordered, the pegs began to warm with figures, and the ordering spreadsheet-bot never decided to get wave 3. At least - that's how it seemed around here. In fairness my local Target did have a wave 3 display, for a few days, and that quickly vanished and was the last I'd seen of anything other than Arctic Destro
and his wave 2 brethren. I finally broke down and bought the full set of wave 6 figures (oddly enough, available before wave 5...) from bigbadtoystore.com
(a fine establishment!) and wouldn't you know it but saw the entire wave at my local Walmart not a week after my package arrived.
Well, no matter! I'm still glad to have these figures to be able to feature them on the Preserve, and add them to our photo archives. Today we're taking a look at Croc Master - that former burglar alarm salesman who found a higher calling in the Cobra organization. Click through the image below for his full bio, and more shots of this new, and hopefully in-stores-now, figure!
