Yes! Did you check your Cobra name?

AHH! One of the few possible combinations that yield an ACTUAL G.I. Joe. Let’s go with your Cobra name.. Wild Viper!

Reply

LBAM July 23, 2012 at 1:57 pm

Bullshot. And apparently, SEAL.

Reply

Howie Decker July 23, 2012 at 2:46 pm

Bullshot would be a dangerous name to put on a kid’s action figure box. Just a paint smudge away from a lawsuit!

Leather Light Seal?!? WTH?!? I sound like a fabulous diva not a Joe!!!

Reply

Howie Decker July 23, 2012 at 2:48 pm

Leather Light. Could definitely see that as a Joe name, but for a Navy SEAL? probably not. And now that I look at it, it kinda sounds more like something you’d find at an adult bookstore. Maybe we’ll go with your Cobra codename?

Reply

Jason July 23, 2012 at 2:08 pm

My G.I. Joe Codename would be:
- Air Head
Specialty:
- Pilot

Apparently I wouldn’t make a good Joe, guess I’m more of a Cobra guy (Night Skull).

Reply

Howie Decker July 23, 2012 at 2:49 pm

Air Head IS something they would have put out there in the 90s, and its a nice nod to the candy! (cross promotion opportunity). I do like your Cobra name though – very intimidating. Could challenge CC for power…

Reply

Daniel Uthman July 23, 2012 at 2:10 pm

Code name: Bull Line

Apparently I’m a Navy special ops guy who has trouble telling the truth!

Air Slam, Tank Commander.
Sounds like I’ll be taking a page out of the A-Team movie and trying to fly tanks.

Maybe I should try Cobra, cause this doesn’t sound too safe.

nice! Air Finder is cool – as for Night Viper, it’s one of the few possible combinations that would yield an ACTUAL existing character (a la Brian Morin getting “Snow Job”, but alas the Night Viper is a very cool figure: http://www.theterrordrome.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/10/night-viper.jpg

Air Out? Really? That just sounds unfortunate, but I’m SEAL so back off.

Air Out definitely sounds like the Joe who’s assigned to cleaning socks and boots. What about your Cobra name?

Night Vulture – Pilot

Actually that works out. Probably flies cargo planes at night.

Also, “Cross Ball” is funny as hell…

Also, who doesn’t want to be a ninja? However… with a name like Night Buster… it leads me to think of sex somehow…

Sergeant Town, Paratrooper. My name sounds like something you make up on the fly when Duke catches you spray painting graffiti on the side of the barracks. “I’m gonna need your name, soldier.” “Ummmmmmmmm, Sergeant…Town?”

My Cobra name is no better: Scrap Scorpion, Driver. Apparently I drive a beater HISS Tank. I guess we can’t all be the Baroness.

Reply
