Cobra Diver is an homage from the ARAH mini-series episode "The Worms of Death". The figure is made from Torpedo's body with a new sculpt head. While this figure isn't all red like the character was in the cartoon, it still looks like a Cobra Diver should. The knife still doesn't fully fit into the sheath but it's tight enough to stay in place, same can be said about the pistol. (It fits better than the knife though) Most of the accessories he comes with are the same that came with Torpedo but they replaced his gun with the one that came with Diver Baroness and the harpoon gun with Comic Pack Firefly's rifle. Also included with this figure is the Heavy Water catalytic element for the MASS Device. Cobra Diver comes with a Knife, Rifle, Pistol, Flippers, Mask, Hose, Backpack, two Air Tanks, Heavy Water catalytic element and a Cobra Stand.
At first I was mad that they didn't just paint this figure completely red, but after getting it, I have no problems with that. It's a solid figure that has a great design. This is what happens when you do a repaint correctly. The only drawback I can see is that the pistol doesn't easily fit into the hands. It'll fit but the hand is stretched a bit.
Figure Rating: 8 out of 10

IMO this is the only thing that saves Wave 12 from total suckage. LOL.

if the gun fits that poorly, i will cut a section out of the trigger guard enough to allow the gun to slide all the way down to the hand.
and if im not going to use that knife, the tip has to come off to sink down further into the sheath.
really looking forward to this one...or two or three!

I like the red color, but I think I'll pass on this one.

This figure doesn't impress me as much as it seems to for others.....easy pass. I'd have to give it a 5/10.
