I see this EEL the same way I see the Vipers... they're from a movie called the RISE of Cobra. I hope that means that as sequels come along Cobra will move towards a look we're more familiar with. The MARS troopers look like proper Cobra Soldiers overall, but these Viper- types, including the EEL- their lame uninspired masks just make me sad. Now the EEl with an afterthought hole drilled into the back of his head for an airhose? Lame. And that vest?? If this EEL is in swimmer mode, it doesn't belong. If you want him in a non- swimmer uniform, make one taht way- don't half-do it.
I hate this figure because of the head and vest and complete lack of any resemblance to the Cobra EEL- one of my all- time favorite figures.

Not one of my favorites. I dont think the vest or the holsters on his legs work for an underwater specialist. I do actually like his combo launcher and sled. (I know I know....I like spring loaded weapons though).

I actually like the vest. Can't tell for sure from the pics, but it looks like a tactical flotation vest similar to the ones occasionally used by US Navy SWCCs and USMC Rigid Raiding Craft coxswains/crewmen.
Not really digging the rest of the figure, though, and I wish Hasbro would start making proper chest-mounted rebreathers for their frogmen characters instead of dorsal-mounted scuba tanks.

I greatly prefer the 25th Eel mold to this mold. I'll be sticking with that one.

I like the fig. I have removed the vest. Looks good manning the Hydrofoil.

I was lucky enough to find one at the walmart 5 dollar sale, and I like him. He is the land operations Eel for me.
