OHYEAH! I'm looking at him right now in my display case. That was the first CC I ever got. I was watching the cartoon and reading the comics and figured I needed Cobra Commander. Back then that was the way to mail away for a figure. Now you have to buy $60 worth of figures and pay 5.99 (the cost of a figure) to get a mail-away....

Yeah, no kidding. So long as they make more, anyway...

I wish there was a Flag Points system again. I ordered a Manta, Parachutes, Sgt Slaughter, and the Fridge. OK the Fridge sucked but still it was quite a thing to flip through the mail-away catalog, counting my flag points and planning- it caused me to spend more time with my catalogs, which in turn surely inspired me to buy more Joes. That kind of marketing was Wizard. Wish they hadn't lost that concept.

Don't you think they should just start selling this way - just give me a kick ass figure or vehicle in a plain white box or mailer bubble for all I care...I could give a rats ass about the packaging!
