The original Cobra Commander action figure!
It was produced by Hasbro in 1982 for their newly resurrected G.I. Joe line.
Feast your eyes on one of the most iconic figures of all time:
Cobra Commander first appeared in Marvel’s G.I. Joe #1, written by Larry Hama in 1982.
The commander was not available in stores at first. As you can see from this ad in G.I. Joe #1, you had to send away for it by mail when the figure was first released.
There have been many variations of Cobra Commander’s “mirror-mug” outfit over the years, and here’s one of them.
But it all began with the good old original figure from ’82.
Thanks for reading.
