Memorable quotes

  • Cobra Commander: Arrrrrgh! I want them to be dead! Dead! Dead! Dead!", and for that matter practically everything else in his rant over the first three pages, which is melodramatic even by his standards.

Other notes

Errors

  • Last issue, the bodies in the freighter were skeletons - this issue, they're whole, intact and identifiable.
  • When the house is revealed to be full of dirt, "MacHeath" says he figured as much. But how does he know? He's in a Razorback behind the castle walls, so he can't see the houses, and Destro's comment to the Baroness could not have been heard from that far away.[1]
  • The Arashikage Death Touch must be pretty potent if it even works through a beryllium-steel battle helmet.

Items of note

  • First appearance: Big Ben, Crimson Guard Immortals, Paralyzer
  • Lots of new costumes debut in this issue. Cobra Commander, Hawk, Snake-Eyes and Low-Light all get updated looks to match their newer toys.
  • The workers Cobra is using are the residents of Millville.[2]

Dossiers

  • The dossier in this issue features Roadblock.

Real-world references

  • Cobra Commander's tv is a Sony.
  • "C Mart" is a standin for Kmart.

Footnotes and References

  1. The "No Prize" solution is that Chuckles secretly bugged either Destro or the Baroness, and is listening in on their conversation via an earpiece.
