This is one of two of these guys I actually still have. They’ve kept in pretty good shape, but I think this may have a lot to do with the fact that I didn’t really play with them very much. Not that I didn’t like them or anything, just that I got them around the end of my collecting years, so it just didn’t get the same wear-and-tear as previous figures.
The hand-crafted leader of Cobra managed to avoid the fate of many of my other G.I. Joe figures and has kept himself in one piece over the last 30 years.
The egotistical Serpentor was never a character I particularly cared for. He always had a bloated sense of self importance. Sure, Cobra Commander had the same failing, but there was something comical about it. Serpentor, on the other hand, took himself too seriously. Like a spoiled child whose folks told him he was special until he believed it religiously.
