WALKY SMASH

THIS IS MY ANGRY AMALGATED SNAKE-THEMED TYRANT FACE

Shortpacked!: MEME!


Found the rest of the second wave of G.I. Joe "Combat Heroes" today, and so I totally picked up a Serpentor.  And why the hell not?  Sure, Destro's my nostalgic kitsch favorite, but Serpentor is legitimately a ludicrous piece of work.  He's the regeneration of history's greatest warriors wearing a goofy snake-themed costume that includes a snakey mask.  And he pulls live snakes from his costume to throw as spears. 

And he's now an adorable tiny super-deformed figurine. 

In theory, he has as much articulation as Destro's Combat Heroes figure, since he has rotational joints at the neck, shoulders, and waist.  However, neither the head or waist joints really have room for any movement.  They're basically useless.  Eh.  Articulation isn't why I get these things.  He's Serpentor, and that's all that matters.

He comes with Sockhead-- er, Beachhead.  I'm sorry, Beachhead, but you're going to be forgotten very soon.  I really only wanted Serpentor.  If only you were somebody cool like Shipwreck.  Or Robo-Joe.
