1987 Techno Viper - Around the Web

I didn't have a profile ready for today.  So, I'm going to switch things around and see if I can something ready for Thursday.  In the meantime, here's a look at the 1987 Techno Viper.

The 1987 Techno Viper has become a staple of the Cobra army building corps.  While his purple color was fairly out there in 1987, it has since become just another de-facto Cobra color like blue and crimson.  The figure isn't spectacular.  But, he has great gear and is generally well regarded by collectors.  His popularity leads to a decent amount of content on him around the web.

  1. Techno Vipers are interesting as they're really popular considering the role they play and the 1987 release date.

    I've never actually seen one in person!

  2. The figure isn't that impressive and his helmet is just odd, but his accessories are Awesome imho.

  3. I like Techno-Viper, though he even furthers the trend of Cobra uniforms not making a lot of sense. What are those silver hoses? I can understand a breathing mask giving potential working hazards, but the fancy helmet and such, a removable mask and goggles would've been better...less "sci-fi alien-robot"
