Included with a two pack of figures featuring the following:
A boy named Adam takes a bike from his house across the seemingly peaceful town of Springfield. Daydreaming, he nearly runs into a limo driven by a Cobra Officer, Scarface. Two Springfield police officers nearly chew out scarface until they realize he is chauffering an incognito Cobra Commander. The limo drives off and the policemen send Adam on his way.
Adam arrives at the Video World Arcade, late for his work. He walks into the basement to find Professor Appel trying to fix the brainwave scanner. The scanner's software has crashed and Adam sits down in front of a laptop to reboot the device.
Scarface and Cobra Commander arrive at the Springfield Museum of Antiquities. The Commander complains about Scarface's chauffering and threatens him when scarface replies sarcastically. The Commander makes his way to the museum's basement and dons his normal attire.
Realizing he's late for his dentist appointment, Adam leaves Professor Appel to fix the scanner alone. Adam is grateful Dr. Bender is such a mellow person or else his tardiness would place him in real trouble. Inside, Dr. Bender explains to Adam that he spends his time thinking of way to alleviate the pain dental procedures cause, showing Adam a new device which he hopes will stop pain in the nervous system. Dr. Bender intends to test the device on himself.
Cobra Commander meets with Destro and the Baroness and begins his morning target practice. He whispers to a nearby Scarface to summon Zartan. Deep under Springfield, Cora Commander orders Zartan to find out what Destro and the Baroness are planning.
Back in the arcade, Professor Appel checks on Adam through the dental office's security cameras. Seeing the explosions there, Appel assumes it must be a G.I. Joe attack and sounds the alarm.
Seemingly the entire town of Springfild mobilizes, elevating hidden weapons and sending a convoy os HISS tanks and armored trucks to the Broca Medical Complex. Rattlers are even mobilized. Adam calms everyone down, thinking only that Dr. Binder is having a medical emergency. An angry Cobra Commander asks who sounded the alarm while a nervous Appel looks on.
Professor Appel and his daughter Candy are transferred in disgrace to Staten Island, Dr. Binder has a change of personality and calls himself Dr. Mindbender, Adam has his teeth fixed the old fashioned way, and mistrust still remains among the upper echelons of Cobra.
