Well, I decided to change things up once again, and post 3 recent buys (two of which are still in the mail). These prototypes are all modern, Rise of Cobra cancelled/prototype figures and they all happen to be arctic themed! First, we have the ROC cancelled Snowjob; it is the same as the POC release except for the ROC insignia on his jacket and skiis. Second, is the ROC cancelled/prototype Elite Ice Viper in the unreleased alternate paint scheme. This figure also comes with the “HM” mark on it. Third, we have the unreleased/cancelled/prototype Arctic Assult Duke! Sadly, I wasn’t able to find one with the vest, but the POC Snowjob vest makes a suitable replacement. I actually bought the Arctic Duke and Ice Viper today (lunchtime and eBay are a dangerous proposition), because the Snow Job came in and I liked it so much I thought I should get a few more from that same era. These were all pretty affordable – not like the Arctic Alpine, or Arctic Snake Eyes (the blue unreleased version) which are $250-500+.
I stopped by a Walgreens in the area to see if they had any Joes and I stumbled onto a clearance gold mine! Each figure was only $4!!!
