Python Patrol Zarana

Another action figure repaint that never was, Python Patrol Zarana, alongside her original 1986 figure design.

New Dr. Venom

Here’s a new version of Dr. Venom, this time trying something other than the traditional “scientist in a lab coat” look.

New Vypra, Cobra courier

Another of the “clone” action figures released in The Real American Hero Collection of 1997-2002, Vypra has appeared a few times since, always as a Jinx repaint. That includes a 2015 release. Here, some earlier Vypra elements remain, but most ninja elements are gone.

Soldier Serpentor

Now for a sort of random concept. What if Serpentor spent more time on the battlefield and dressed in something more appropriate than his snake “costume”? Here, Serpentor is dressed more like a modern soldier but adds some ancient Roman-style armor and weapons, so he can fight alongside his troops.

Marcy Malone

Here is a character many have never seen. A while back, cartoonist Ryan Dunlavey provided alternate covers for some of IDW’s G.I. Joe series chronicling the story of Marcy Malone: Intern of Cobra! The only person to join Cobra for the college credits. Click here to see the whole story.

Worlds Without End – Baroness

The most obviously different character in the “Worlds Without End” universe is the Baroness, who is not only a double agent trying stop Cobra but in a relationship with Steeler. (Also, she apparently wears contacts.) Here we have the Baroness if she later completely left Cobra in that world and began working with the Joes.
