Series: Thirteen (1994)
Alley Viper was released carded in the thirteenth series (1994) as part of the Battle Corps subset. The Battle Corps figures were numbered 1 through 14 - Alley Viper was number 7.
Alley Viper was discontinued in 1994.
Alley Viper came with an orange face mask, a blue missile launcher (spring loaded, actually fired), two orange missiles, two orange guns, an orange shield, and an orange figure stand.

Motto: "We aren't afraid of taking over ANY city...except maybe some parts of New York."
The ALLEY VIPERS are an elite contingent of ruthless marauders and true masters of brutality! Despite their destructive powers and feared reputations, Cobra was dissatisfied with them and recently outfitted this new breed of Alley Vipers that make the old ones look like nerdy wimps! Extensive physical and terrorist training programs are standard for these vicious Vipers. They are skilled villains and dangerously full of hate. You definitely don't want to invite one of these gorillas to dinner...or anywhere else!

Alley Viper was created using the same mold used to create Alley Viper (v2) (1993). The head, chest, and waist were later used to create Alley Viper (v4) (1997), Alley Viper (v5) (2002), Alley Viper (v6) (2002), Alley Viper (v7) (2003), and Alley Viper (v9) (2004).
