Neo-Vipers are to G.I. Joe what Clone Troopers are to Star Wars. Just slap a new color on them and voila! Instant "new" character.
That being said, I actually like the Crimson Neo-Viper and look forward to the Chocolate Neo-Viper.

At first glance it reminded me of walrus man from star wars

Man, I LOVE this figure. It's my favorite so far, next to PP Snake Eyes that is. I've only found 2 but I want at least 6 more of these guys, to each his own though.

I own all of the vipers that have been released so far and all of them are pretty good.

I really like this figure, it's the first neo-viper that I actually wanted to buy. I think they're great and they come with a lot of odd, but awesome accessories. I really like the idea of Cobra troopers carrying poisonous snakes to release on unsuspecting enemies. I just wish they would have come with some sort of backpack or rifle they could hold easier. But other than that, I'm glad I picked up to the two I found, I hope to find a couple more. I've always seen the Crimson Guard as more ceremonial troops or "fighting" in offices. These guys are more like battlefield ready crimson guardsmen to me.

I think the spear thing doubles as a snake wrangling pole. It slides right in the open end of the snake case, the blade fitting through the groove, then you can fish the snake out. Snake handlers use less violent versions of this pole with a hook to lift snakes from a distance. It's kind of fun for a second, may be a nifty challenge for a hyperactive little kid.
I really like the red! Metallics and translucents tend to have this candy-like appeal to me, but often end up detracting from the actual toy. This one is so deep and glossy out of the package, I really like it. I like the painted shoulder pads that help one down the prominent collar too.
Great accessories. The rifle is way better than the Neo-Viper's Duplo guns; although my first one got stressed as well. The axes are strange and insane, but a cool addition.

I love the Elite Viper and Cobra Eel (both). I like the regular neo-viper and Viper commando but I dunno about this guy. I likie the ROC line because most seem to have a touch of 'realism'. But this guy... a candy apple terrorist?!? I just dont know. I originally wanted to get him but looking at those pics, now Im not so sure. Of course when I see him in person I could change my mind.

It is kinda funny that what Shogi does not like about the figure is what makes me like him. I really dislike the armor on the Vipers. But the color of this one makes me really dig him. The "spear" is very similar to a breaching tool used to break and rake windows.
