Para-viper freaking rocks. the colors that have had me barfing since Joecon really aren't nearly as bad in person (they seem to photograph much brighter than they actually are ~ Unlike bazooka trooper, who's blue if anything is brighter in person). Sure i'd still do something different with the green and orange, but they aren't nearly as bad as i expected.
my ONLY complaint is that if you try and display him without his helmet on, there's nothing to do with the hoses ~ i guess i could take 'em off but i'd be worried about losing them. They're a bit of a mess just hanging by themselves. (i was gonna display one with helmet on and one off)
i also really hate that his weapons are molded in blue, and the sculpt of the rifle is kinda poor, but i immediately replaced it with a Marauder John RPK, which looks FANTASTIC.
a really excellent figure that fits the overall Joe Aesthetic well.
but what's up with "from the GJoe comic" logo on the card, lol. no he's not! :p
hopefully these guys show up in Resolute or the IDW comics.
My 25th Most Wanted List:
1. Tunnel Rat <-CHECK! 2. General Hawk (v2)<-CHECK! 3. Leatherneck <-CHECK(kinda...)
4. Jinx 5. Dusty <-CHECK! 6. Snow Serpent <-CHECK! 7. Tele-Viper <-CHECK(kinda...)
8. Falcon<-CHECK (kinda...) 9. Footloose <-CHECK! 10. Recondo <-CHECK!
9 down, 1 to go ~ but i really want a new Leatherneck and Falcon

I've seen INFINITELY worse color schemes on figures in GI Joe's history. This guy is pure 100% win, and I'll be picking up another one or two down the road. BTW, the rifle has a folding stock. AWESOME little detail there.
