G.I. Joe Raptor

So how does one go about joining the ranks of a group like Cobra? Well for starters they can start out as a yuppie tax consultant who took up falconry as a hobby and then becomes obsessed with it and then turns to poaching using his birds.

Then one gets caught by Destro doing this on a Cobra Mink Ranch and then joins the ranks of Cobra using his skills to develop a bird of prey strong enough to attack a G.I. Joe.

After I read this on Raptor’s file card I just started laughing so hard because much like Crystal Ball which I just blogged about this is one of those over the top characters I just really like.

I guess Cobra is a big enough group to included Hypnotists and Falconers and makes me wonder why they never tried to recruit a Milkman or the Maytag Repair Man?

Anyway fun action figure from series 6 of the 1987 released wave of Joes and like Crystal Ball no other versions of Raptor were made and again I like with CB I would love to see a modern updated action figure be made of this one.
