Motto: "Soon everyone will raise their fists to the sky and proclaim their loyalty to COBRA!"
COBRA COMMANDER is totally ruthless and without a conscience. The leader of the COBRA forces, he wants two simple things: to take over the world through his COBRA organization, and to destroy the GI JOE team. Money and power are what he's after, and he'll do anything to get them. And it won't be anything on a small scale - no, he likes his attacks and destruction to be on a big scale. He'll even attempt to take over a major city. He relished sweeping past the Statue of Liberty in a COBRA C.L.A.W. assault glider to show that he is taking control of the liberty and freedom of the entire world.
Due to environmental concerns and rising cost, the vac-metal chrome finish on Cobra Commander's face mask was changed to a metallic silver paint for the 50th Anniversary release.
The display stand for the 50th Anniversary release featured gold paint.
