Funko Pop 80 Cobra B.A.T. 2021 Summer Virtual Funkon LIMITED Edition

COBRA (sometimes referred to as Cobra Command) is a fictional radical organization and the nemesis of the G.I. Joe Team in the Hasbro action figure toyline G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero and G.I. Joe: Sigma 6, as well as in related media.

Cobra was first introduced during the launch of the G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero toyline in mid-1982. The toyline was accompanied by a Marvel Comics series, written by Larry Hama, and an animated television series by Sunbow and Marvel Productions. However, the origin and portrayal of Cobra has differed in each of them. Marvel Comics invented the Cobra concept, with the name having been proposed by Archie Goodwin. When Marvel first proposed the concept, Hasbro was reluctant to make toys of the villains for fear that they would not sell.

B.A.T.s are Cobra robots from the A Real American Hero series. There is nothing more fearful than to have to face even one of Cobra's Battle Android Troopers. Though not particularly built for endurance, B.A.T.s can still take tremendous amount of damage and continue fighting. They serve nothing more than cannon fodder. As long as their trigger finger is in contact with gun (or their weapons-based end effectors still have ammunition), they'll do as they were designed until absolutely nothing is left but scrap. B.A.T.s can be manufactured cheaply, quickly, and en masse. To ensure their inexpensiveness, they aren't equipped with very sophisticated logic circuits. As a result, they react poorly to changes in battlefield conditions and have a potential to mow down foes and allies alike.

Due to their inability to identify targets as friendly or hostile, they are not used in conjunction with normal Cobra troops. Cobra deploys B.A.T.s when their side is losing. They would also use the threat of B.A.T. deployment to keep demoralized troops from fleeing. On their own, they would move forward aimlessly until they spot a target — a moving heat signature — and they will attack it until it stops moving. They can be controlled remotely, but this leaves the units open to enemy disruption or control, so it is rarely done. When controlled, they can be given basic movement or targeting orders. Later models are a little more autonomous and can perform more sophisticated actions.
