I dunno, I kinda like Python Patrol...
This is two pics of me at Dragoncon '08 this year, in Python Patrol Viper gear made by my production studio.

Like I said in a post elsewhere, I'll buy Python Patrol or Tiger Force if they are in a boxset. Single's price is too expensive for these awful repaints. I mean I like the concept but the colors ain't exactly stealthy. Don't mind if they upgrade it realistically, sorta like the 2003 boxset.

I'm a big fan of both Tiger Force and Python Patrol, and I have to admit -- different strokes for different folks -- I don't get the hostility to "unrealistic" stuff in RAH.
I mean, I also collect bbi and Unimax (Forces of Valor) and 21st Century Toys product, and the difference between an actually realistic, historical military line and RAH seems huge to me. I don't think the appeal of RAH has anything to do with accuracy. For me, the Venture Bros. nailed just about everything preposterous about the concept.
So the Python colors aren't stealthy? Well, I also don't think a football jersey is an accurate military outfit, or that ninjas play a significant role in our armed forces, or that jet pack technology is decisive on the battlefield. Plus, if Destro's mask is metal, how does his expression change? And so on.
I mean, like I said, it's fine for people to object to this stuff -- I just find it very strange whenever GI Joe fans complain about the sci-fi, comic-book elements to the line, when in my mind those elements predominated in everything released after 1983. And if you really don't like the bulk of what the line included, why not just collect Forces of Valor stuff and call it a day?

BUT, the original Copperhead is what teal and lime green?!? not exactly the most "realistic" or "tactical" colors out there...for me it isn't about realism(as the whole business is very much sci-fi and even a little fantasy), but about the badness of the color schemes and designs(which some people love due to the gaudyness i hate)...
i have a little different slant to the PP in my Cobraverse and i presume i can find a place for PP Copperhead in there SOMEWHERE...

Yes, I love the Python Patrol and my officers are waiting for more like them. Hopefully we will have some Python Troopers coming soon as well!
