    Cobra of course. Better uniforms, better vehicles and better names.

    This is a tough one for me... I usually always side with the 'good guys', and I did with this poll as well, but it was more difficult. Cobra has some wicked-cool vehicles, soldiers, fortresses, and - ahem - the Baroness....

    But, with that said, I'm still a long-time Joe fan. Snake Eyes, Scarlett, Hawk, Roadblock, Low Light, and Beach Head are some of my most favorite vintage figures. I am BEYOND UPSET that Sideshow will never produce a 1:6 Scarlett figure in their doomed G.I. Joe line...

    Ah well,... keep up the good fight Joes!

    YO JOE!!!

    Have to join the Joes, mainly because

    A) They need more women in their ranks, if only to balance out the sausage-fest.
    B) They need people who can actually SHOOT a gun. If the Sunbow series is any indication, both sides couldn't hit the broadside of a barn if it fell on them.
    C) Shipwreck could use help making snarky comments to disguise the jealousy we feel because Cobra has much cooler **** than we do.
    D) Even if I fail, I'm brave enough to face Benny in his best cosplay across a field of battle.

    YO JOE!!!!

    Well, allow me to retort:

    1) By my count, G.I. Joe has 3 females: Scarlett, Lady Jaye and Cover Girl. Cobra, on the other hand, has 2: The Baroness and Zaranna. So Cobra needs women more than G.I. Joe. God, do we need women!

    2) Can you shoot a gun with accuracy and precision under stress or in a combat situation? It's not the same as shooting in a controlled environment like a shooting range.

    3) Agreed.

    4) And what would be your combat gear look, Nekker?

    Sorry B, didn't realize it was that time of the month.

    1) You have B.A.T.S. to keep you warm at night.

    2) Does shooting an 8 point with a bow at 35 yards at the precise second the six does that have been trying to suck your soul out with their eyes divert their attention count?

    3) Fair enough.

    4) I'm not wearing a black leather catsuit - you can't move in those things!

    Not unless that deer is armed with twin 40 mm multiple fire cannons and a Kerry CDV-9B "Jawbreaker" nose cannon...

    Stop being a baby. I can move plenty in one of those.
