There are 2 sellers on eBay selling this figure one has it listed as Charbroil
GI Joe Charbroil loose figure - eBay (item 120410726880 end time Apr-30-09 10:31:45 PDT) (http://cgi.ebay.com/GI-Joe-Charbroil-loose-figure_W0QQitemZ120410726880QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_ DefaultDomain_0?hash=item120410726880&_trksid=p4634.c0.m14.l1262&_trkparms=%7C301%3A1%7C293%3A1%7C294%3A30)

The other seller lists him as a Lamprey
G.I.JOE Rise Of Cobra Red Lampray Loose - eBay (item 360151214193 end time May-03-09 20:21:37 PDT) (http://cgi.ebay.com/G-I-JOE-Rise-Of-Cobra-Red-Lampray-Loose_W0QQitemZ360151214193QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_D efaultDomain_0?hash=item360151214193&_trksid=p4634.c0.m14.l1262&_trkparms=%7C301%3A0%7C293%3A1%7C294%3A30)

My opinion is he looks like a Lamprey, but why would Hasbro go through the trouble of giving a Lamprey a unique head-sculpt. I can also see Hasbro going the lazy route and just calling this guy Charbroil even though he looks like the Lamprey from the 7 pack.

What do you guys think?

i think this is ludicrous and should not be asked in a public forum! ha j/k im on crack umm...it looks really cool either way, but i guess charbroil? a lamprey wouldnt have an exposed face would it? plus the second auction the guy just says its a "red lampray" .............lamp ray?..........

Do both the Cobra Island and the Stinger pack have removable helmets?

In that thread your talking about DESTRO said he made a mistake and Lamprey?/Charbroil? is not supposed to be Flash from the video game.

I think this prototype found on Taobao will end up being the video game Flash

I think the Lamprey just has a visor that lifts up.

I tend to agree with you Samantha, but why would the bro give him a unique head-sculpt???
That is what's making me question him being a Lamprey :D

Good question unless he is a spy or some kind of unique character, like the crimson Guard with removable helmet or Tommy in CC disguise. Not sure but that would be what I would put my money on.

Leaning Lamprey. If it is a Lamprey and this guy gets troop builded does this mean these are like the Fred series and undergo cosmetics to all look alike under the helmet?????

Yeah that's the only reason I asked the question if it is a Lamprey then the unique head-sculpt is kind of dumb unless they make up some story about him being the Lamprey squad leader, or it is just Hasbro being lazy and he will be Charbroil(I hope not).
I think it's surprising that the bro made 2 unique Lamprey helmet molds one that is part of the head-sculpt with a visor that can be raised and lowered and the other a completely removable helmet.

Time will tell. After seeing all the price hikes/adjustments to figs nothing they do surprises me anymore.

He's not Charbroil, but he's not a Lamprey (technically) either.

I think he'll be a Joe. I think the sub is a Joe vehicle (can see Joe mini-subs attacking MARS' underwater base in the trailer) and this is the driver.

RoC Wet-Suit? Deep-Six? Torpedo?

Definately not Charbroil.

^Well we know it's not Deep Six since we already have seen him single carded for the RoC line. I still think that other red and black figure is Charbroil we saw a while ago, but I still wonder who this will end up being. I like your theories maybe it will be Wet-Suit who knows :D

The seller unitedwell923 listed the Lamprey?/Charbroil? figure with a "buy it now" price of 12.99 with 2.03 shipping seems like a pretty good deal.

Well, he's got the gun of a Lamprey (the Sten type sub-machine gun). If it were Charboil, there wouldn't really be anything in common with Charboil. Doesn't really look like him, completely different accessories (Helmet, gun, etc). I have a feeling its a Lamprey repaint, and maybe they threw the Charboil name on it, I dunno, but it is kinda weird.

He's a lot closer to a V2 Lamprey than any version of Charbroil that I've ever seen. Maybe he's a unique character. They made a new headsculpt for Scarface.

Why would they go through the process of making two lamprays? One with a removable helmet and one w/ a visor? That doesn't sound like Hasbro.
