I’m continuing my look at the amazing assortment of high end G.I.Joe offerings for auction on Hake’s Americana & Collectibles from the collection of Mr. Kevin Watts.
This time around, let’s take a look at the incredible Rise of Cobra Pre-Production samples he’s offering up –
As the Rise of Cobra line was preparing to sunset, an assortment of characters were going to be offered on new packaging that were specific to a certain combat theater. The Rise of Cobra packaging was later scrapped in exchange for Pursuit of Cobra, making these items extremely rare. For instance, take a look at Duke. Although he was offered in POC, this version features Channing Tatum’s headsculpt, along with a painted Jacket.
The Cobra Fury and G.I.Joe Wolf Hound are also quite impressive, sporting Rise of Cobra packaging that would look fantastic on display in any collection. Below are links to each item represented above –
- “G.I. JOE THE RISE OF COBRA” ARCTIC THREAT “DUKE” UNRELEASED FIGURE.
- “G.I. JOE THE RISE OF COBRA” ARCTIC THREAT “ELITE ICE-VIPER” UNRELEASED FIGURE.
- “G.I. JOE THE RISE OF COBRA” ARCTIC THREAT “DESTRO” UNRELEASED FIGURE.
- “G.I. JOE THE RISE OF COBRA” ARCTIC THREAT “SNOW JOB” UNRELEASED FIGURE.
- G.I. JOE “RISE OF COBRA” WOLFHOUND AND COBRA FURY RARE BOXED PAIR.
These rare items are highly sought after in certain circles, so with just over 2 days to go, make sure to get your bid in before these are gone!
