YO COBRA! Cosplayers Of Cobra First Legion Unite For The Common Good

The Baroness rounding up groceries for food banks? Snake Eyes stalking the streets for toys to take to a children's hospital? Better believe it folks. While it takes only the most universal of plights to unite the forces of good and evil, the cosplay efforts of the Cobra 1st Legion show you can have fun, make a positive difference and show off your love for the G.I. Joe Universe at the same time - Dreadnok or not.

On a personal note, Dial-Tone (far right above) and Law and Order (far left) were the first two G.I. Joe toys I ever owned. I'm glad to see I'm not the only one that remembers Law, although I'm sure Order used to be an Alsatian. Maybe he just shrunk in the wash.

The self made costumes the team employ are outstanding, and while the Legion are always thirsty for new 'real american heroes', they have also managed some sweet on-location photo shoots, like as Alcatraz Prison and onboard the U.S.S. Hornet aircraft carrier.

If you have a desire to join the ranks of Destro, Cobra Commander and Duke, or just want to check out more shots of the guys and gals in action figure based action, you can visit them on Facebook here, tumblr here or even on their own website here.

  1. ya know what? if these folks made a low budget Youtube video it would still be ten time more entertaining then the G.I. Joe movie.

  3. Cosplay, the right way (not that it's a wrong way). Cobra Legion, the 501st, the Suicide Squad is next. Dragon con 2013. Dan, Dale, OA1, Randomnerd, Aleria and Shlomo. Think we could take Atlanta?

    Nice post man.

  6. Your such a good natured guy man, I just don't see Digger. Who are you really?

    I'm not going to badger you any more, that was just the Squad that came to mind. And I did like the post. I look over your site and wonder.....where does he find this stuff.

  7. Badger as much as you want mate... As for me being a good natured guy, that's just my PR team at work. In real life I'm a right Doc Doom ;)

    I like having a pretty big variety of stuff online so info comes from all over. These guys actually got in touch with me. Always makes things easy when that happens.

  10. OA1 I would love to do a Suicide Squad cosplay. I just have to settle on a character. And it's a dream of mine to do Dragon Con. True story, I was just talking about that today.

  11. Maybe we could double up - Teen Titans during the day - darker Suicide Squad people painting the town red by night. I used to get I looked like Archie allot so I'm sure I could spin that into a decent Roy Harper...
