Version 1: spring 1990 regular carded figure assortment
Cobra Heavy Machine Gunner
  • head: S.A.W.-Viper (90, 03)
  • arms: S.A.W.-Viper (90, 03), Zartan (01), Dragonsky (06)
  • torso: S.A.W.-Viper (90, 03), Zartan (01), Dragonsky (06)

The S.A.W.-VIPER is equipped with a gyro-stabilized, cryogenically-cooled mini-chain gun, scoped with an infrared night-vision, auto-ranging, optical sighting system. This means that he has a highly accurate, low-malfunction machine gun that doesn't burn out the barrel during intense rapid-fire bursts. It's nothing for him to zone-in on a flea nestled in heavy brush over 800 yards away, in pitch darkness and pick it off in one shot!
"You definitely don't want to get pinned down by a S.A.W.-Viper at night. His weapon has an integral sound suppressor, an effective flash inhibitor, and a powerful image-intensifier. With all that, you won't even know you're being shot at until you hear the sonic boom from the bullet whipping past your ear!"
