Python Patrol Officer is a straight repaint of the Cobra Trooper. The biggest difference here though, is that the crotch has been fixed to allow better leg movement. Just like the original, they used the Trooper web gear for the PP Officer. I'm sure we'll see a PP Trooper using the Officer web gear at some point in the future. The only difference from the original (and the prototype of this figure) is that the knee pads are black instead of "Pythonized" like the web gear. This is a minor complaint as it doesn't really take anything away from the figure and makes it easier to use this figure as a custom for a UK repaint "Hunter" figure. The PP Officer comes with a black rifle, an all silver knife, Grey Helmet, "Python" Webgear and a Cobra Stand.
This figure is a good update to an old repaint. It captures the feel of the vintage figure and can be used for most any setup.
Figure Rating: 6 out of 10

I wish it had the knee pads painted though...otherwise if you take off the web gear, it's just a black and yellow trooper. There's nothing Python about that.

I really enjoyed this figure. Although, I know some won’t, but everyone’s different that way. Simply, if you don’t mind the colors, you’ll probably enjoy Python Patrol.
I would have appreciated painted kneepads, but otherwise a perfect homage to the original.

I passed on this figure today at my wal mart. was a worn paint problem where the grey helmet contacts the plastic.
Otherwise I did'nt like the choice of weapons.
