Built only the red sigil, black mask trooper & was planning to get a bunch of wave 12 Troopers but this made my life easier:

The bulk of my Cobra soldier army is either the comic pack Scarface trooper or the Night Force troopers.
Since the comic pack CG/Scarface pack was so easy to find and great for troop building, that was the way to go for me.

Because Hasbro is retarded. I like the old school black mask with red sigil but I'm not buying the boxsets for one trooper.
Most of my troopers have come from various multipacks(TRU SRO, Cobra 5 Pack, DVD Battles, etc). I don't think I have more than two of any version.

Guys you gotta support G.I. Joe or else we won't have G.I. Joe on the shelves and they haven't released Spaceshot. We can't have an anniversary line without Spaceshot!

The latest version, red mask, red sigil, black pads/ arness belongs to the comic book cobra trooper portrayed in series like " The Snake Eyes Trilogy". Also I remember a later issue by Herb Trimple with lots of these troops, so Hasbro was right on the color scheme.

I'm a fan of the old school color scheme for the cobra troopers...but was there ever a story arc or figure where they are in basic training and had to earn a sigil? Something they had to graduate from before being able to wear the patch? They are all trained in martial arts, etc...(maybe not marksmanship), so they had to start somewhere...???

What do you consider old school? The original toys?
Most everything else has been around since the beginning of the cartoons or comics.
And Cobra Troopers are pretty much bottom of the barrel. You sign up because you need/want the money, they hand you a gun and a blue jump suit, and you spend your life doing the crap work until you get promoted or die.
