He's got a little surprise, too

If you're from the U.S., Cobra is not an anime series that might seem familiar to you. But for those of you in Europe, especially France, you're more familiar about the man with the gun for a hand. You might also be pretty excited to see these color photos featuring figma Cobra, who does indeed come with a heavy dose of 1980s sci-fi anime styling and his trademark gun on his left arm. You'll also get a stand and accessories in the form of his revolver, a cigar and a lighter, but here's what I find interesting: according to the product description, he has poseable eyes, much like some of the Revoltech figures used to have (Woody, anyone?). A teaser photo on the figma Blog seems to indicate there will be more figmas from this series, so stay tuned on that, Cobra fans!

If you're a fan of Cobra, you can pre-order him now for ¥3,810, and as the headline says, he's coming in May.
