COBRA COMMANDER likes to be up front in the thick of the action when his troops confront the GI JOE team. To protect their leader in the heat of battle, the best technical minds at the armament factory run by DESTRO and a "Siegie" known as Fred VII have created a special suit of body armor. This self-contained masterpiece combines flexible bulletproof polymer fabrics with beryllium steel plate components. The entire suit is air-conditioned, solvent-resistant, and ray-shielded. The helmet is fitted with an integral communications system, internal read-outs for environmental quality and a miniaturized computer display. The plate parts can withstand a direct hit from a heavy machine-gun and the flexible parts will stop anything up to a .357 magnum.
"Several members of the COBRA hierarchy have become suspicious, since it could be anyone hidden under the helmet. However, no one would dare confront COBRA COMMANDER or try to remove his helmet, since it has an anti-tamper device with a direct hook-up to a half-pound of plastic explosive!"
No variations of Cobra Commander (v22) are known to exist.
While the head for Cobra Commander (v22) is an entirely new sculpt, the remainder of the figure was first released as Cobra Commander (v3).
