Easily Broken/Lost Pieces

The Cobra H.I.S.S. cannons can be elevated and held up by two tiny pins underneath where the guns attach to the turret. If the pins break, then the guns will droop and will not stay up when elevated.


There are three different versions of the 788 stickers on the side of the Cobra H.I.S.S.

Early store versions had clear 788 stickers, later store versions had red 788 stickers, and mail-in versions had white 788 stickers.
