Battle Armor Cobra Commander is 99% new sculpt. The head underneath the removable helmet is the same as Beachhead's. Everything else is all new and looks exactly like the original. The articulation is un-hindered even if the elbows look like they wouldn't bend any better than Duke arms. The backpack is larger and more detailed while the gun only vaguely resembles the original one. The hose on the helmet is removable just like the old one. The belt is now removable and they hollowed out the holster, but there's no way any gun, let alone the one he came with, will fit in it. Cobra Commander comes with a Backpack, Gun, Removable Helmet and Cobra Stand
I hated the original figure as a kid, so much so that I tried in vain to blow it up with firecrackers. However, something about the 25th incarnation has me liking this figure much more than I expected to. Something to note is that even though the gun he comes with has no trigger guard, both of his hands have perfectly separated trigger fingers that work with a number of other guns released with the 25th anniversary figures.
This is a faithful update of the original with a little bit extra thrown in with a removable helmet.
Figure Rating: 8 out of 10

I'm in the minority because I LOVED this figure as a kid. To me it made much more sense for CC to wear this going into battle than the double breasted suit. The new figure is one of my favorites of the 25th line. So much so that I picked up a second to paint up and eventually drive my Custom HISS Tank.

YEah this was my favorite CC when I was smaller. I never understood the people who hated it. What exactly bothered everyone so much about it? The armor doesn't look corny and the story behind the armor makes sense so I really don't get it. I mean wouldn't CC have armor at some point? It's only logical given the immense amount of battle plans he devises or is actually a part of against the G.I. Joe forces. The comparison pic of the new one beside the old one makes this new one look even cooler!!

This is easily one of the best figures of the 25th line. I do remember there being mixed feelings about this version of CC in my circle of friends as a kid, yet every one of us still had him in our collections. As for Fred, never liked him. Dic > Comics on this issue in my canon.

i swore i wasnt going to pick this figure up, but alas, i got bored between waves and picked it up on a WM trip.
hes okay....i had to cut that useless holster off and i have him displayed with his helmet cradled in his right arm and left arm behind his back.....kind of a "commissioned portrait pose".
ditched that stupid backpack too.
