It’s been a minute since I’ve posted on #BlackMajorMonday! To fix that, I’m digging in the crates for a release from 2021; For this pictorial, I focused on the 2021 Black Major Cobra Paratrooper!
Back in ’21, Black Major brought the fan-favorite Trooper mold back to the front line as part of an onslaught of new offerings the Major had called “Operation: Cobra Clutch”! I had the pleasure of reviewing another pair of ’21 trooper offerings, namely the Python Officer & Trooper,
First and foremost, let me start by saying that this ’21 assortment of troopers just feels different. My hat’s off to the Major, as these figures felt as though they’re made with a different kind of plastic. Could be just me though, so don’t take my word for it.
The Cobra Paratrooper has a very basic, yet visually pleasing paint scheme of dark gray, with black highlights and not only a bright red Cobra logo on his chest, but also on the side of his helmet, which is really all sorts of awesome. The logos are pretty clean too, so they really do pop right off of the figure. I love that the color chosen works perfectly for a Paratrooper, as I can imagine a team jumping in the dark, ready to take down their enemy at a moment’s notice. The paint apps are really well done on the sample I have in hand, even down to the knee pads! Needless to say, he looks right at home alongside the ’21 Cobra Blue Shirt and Python Patrol offerings.
What I really dig about these new offerings is that they include the assault rifle from the Pursuit of Cobra Shock Trooper. It looks fantastic with this vintage style offering and really helps the figure feel new, even though we’ve seen this mold plenty of times. He also includes his classic Sniper rifle and a back pack to help him lug around all of that bad assery.
The bottom line: QC is on point, paint apps pop and needless to say, the new helmet logo is FIRE. You need one of these in your vintage line up, trust me.
I had an absolute blast reviewing this new Cobra Paratrooper. I hope you enjoyed the review!
