Light Green Gloves Variant

 

Spectacular factory sealed example of one of the most sought-after Cobra vehicles in the entire toyline – the Series Three Cobra Water Moccasin from 1984. Showcasing amazing box art featuring Cobra Commander and Destro, it’s no coincidence that nice factory sealed examples are buried deep in “black hole” collections. It has been many years since a Cobra Moccasin of this caliber has surfaced, and it’s our distinct privilege to bring this amazing AFA “triple 85” to market. Beautiful throughout, the piece showcases vivid color on each of the six panels. Flaws are minimal. No surface wear. No price tag sticker or residue.  Factory tape firmly seals each end with no colorbreak whatsoever. The Cobra Driver action figure is the light green gloves variant. Figure is very fragile, loose in both the legs and waist but is kept together within the tightly confined blister. Simply put, this vehicle in “triple 85” is nearly impossible. Serious collectors understand this will likely be their only opportunity for quite a while. As such, we expect quite a bit of action on this lot.  Encapsulated by AFA (85, 85-85-85), #16755858
