Is there a difference between a robot and an android? I could Google it, but hey, do your own research 😉.
This week I received my Funko Pop! Cobra B.A.T. It’s supposed to be a 2021 Summer Convention Limited Edition Exclusive, but I’ve seen people posting pictures online of finding them in Walmart.
I – again – was able to score him/her/it at Back to the Toys, a webshop and physical store in The Netherlands. They have become my one-stop-shop for Funko Pop!’s recently. If you’re in Europe and looking to get Exclusives, Limited Editions or just regular Pops, take a look at their site. Great service and friendly people. When I get to go to The Netherlands again, I’ll be sure to visit their physical store.
The figure itself is a cool homage to the original 3.75 figure, although it doesn’t come with swappable tools. The color scheme is on point and the big head, which is the Pop!’s trademark feature, doesn’t really stand out that much. It rather fits the figure. It always made for an easy target.
A while back, Super 7 introduced the G.I.Joe figures in their ULTIMATES! and ReAction lines. Both sets of figures look really great, but their price point meant that with taxes and shipping, it would just cost to much to collect them. I did pull the trigger on the 11 inch Cobra B.A.T. though. Was that a mistake?
Straight of the bat (see what I did there 😁), the figure is big. Bigger than I expected it to be. I thought it was more the size of the classified figures, but as it turns out, the figure is around 11 inch tall.
The figure itself is really nice, with a removable chest piece that shows the underlying tubes and machinery.
The figure does come with some accessories similar to the original o-ring figure. They fit to his detachable lower right arm.
All things considered, it’s a nice homage to the original figure, but it stands out in my collection – quite literally by his size. I may end up selling this one again and focus more on the Classified and Retro line figures.
That’s it for now. More new stuff is coming soon. See you back soon.
Happy Collecting and YoJoe!
