Cobra Eel uses Torpedoís body with a new head and vest. The head looks similar to the Elite-Viperís head but the details are a bit different and thereís a hole in the back for the air hose. Unlike the Elite-Viper, they cast the head in black and painted the visor a glossy black so itís now distinguished from the rest of the detail on the head. The vest is all new with a good amount of sculpted detail on it including straps, grenades and a holstered pistol. Cobra Eel also has Torpedoís knife, pistol and flippers along with Croc Masterís air tank/backpack. Cobra Eel has a new harpoon gun. The missile launcher resembles a diver propulsion vehicle (DPV) with fold out stabilizer wings. Cobra Eel comes with a removable Vest, Harpoon Gun, Pistol, Knife, Flippers, Air Tank Backpack, DPV Missile Launcher with Missile and Cobra Stand.
This is a nice figure, but the vest really doesnít look like it belongs. I think the figure looks good with the bulk of a vest on it, just that the vest should look more like it belongs underwater instead of one that looks like something a tactical trooper should be wearing. I donít have a problem with the reuse of the Torpedo body as itís a great underwater body, but having the hole for the Croc Master hose in the back of the head is questionable. The hose is made to plug into the front of a figureís head and I think a hole there would have been better all around. I was pleasantly surprised by the missile launcher and itís functionality with this figure.
Figure Rating: 7 out of 10

Eels have always been one of my favorite characters in the Joe world. As I like the look of ROC anyway, the ROC Eels were an instant win with me.
The one thing that you didn't like, the vest, is one of my favorite aspects of the figure. The Eels are the equivalent of SEALS. The vest combines some underwater gear with a land based tactical loadout . . . giving the Eels a look that fits both in water and on land, a role that I've always pictured the Eels fitting. In fact, I don't even display mine with their fins. Next to the Elite Viper, this is one of my favorite ROC figures.
The one thing I would have liked to see would be the addition of the Elite Vper's gun.

I don't have a problem with the tank as he has a helmet so it could connect back there. The thing that bothers me is the color of the vest and tank. The purple just doesn't look right to me with the other colors. I'm not sure what color they should have used, but it just seems off to me.

This figure disappointed me. It looks awesome in the package, the card art looks awesome. But after getting the figure out of the package it was quite the opposite story. It's just boring, bland, black & lame. It's a little better with the vest off but for some reason I just don't like it.

Nice Review Shogi!
I was surprised this guy was actually in the Movie. I also thought the vest was bulky & out of place & the gun clumsy. But was pleasantly surprised that his head was different from the Elite Viper. He's a solid 8 for me but not as good as the Elite Viper, which so far has been the best new Troop builder of the line.

Like the Elite Viper, if you add red paint to his visor, he really looks a lot better. This will be a great figure in the upcoming Cobra Mantis where it makes much more sense. As is, it is a fine movie figure that accomplishes what it is created for - to give Cobra/MARS an underwater trooper.

I like this figure a lot, but agree - Elite Viper is the best troop builder in the ROC line.
