Welcome to the Outpost. Today I’m diving into one of the greatest Cobra characters, Scrap Iron. What a great design he was. So great that most of the upgrades were just the original design with different color schemes. The original figure is classic Cobra blue with red highlight. He also has one of the coolest missile launchers for any G.I.Joe or Cobra. He was a staple in the cartoon, even though I don’t remember any episodes that revolved around him, he was always ready to fight for his team.
I didn’t have this one as a kid but guess who did? That’s right my older brother (you may start to see a pattern here.) As usual though he was pretty good at sharing so I got my fair share of play time with Scrap Iron. He was my favorite Cobra until Tomax and Xamot came along, but the three of them looked great together and I had many adventures with them as a kid. He had a few modern day upgrades but still the same awesome classic design.
This one is in my top ten characters and I’m glad I had a chance to create many memories with him. Who else loves Scrap Iron? Sound off AFTER THE JUMP and let us know! Make sure to check back for our next discussion.
