One More for Theme Week
Description: I missed the whole Wave V because I wasn't at all plugged into the online Joe world in 2002, and I definitely regret that. I like the red ones but it's always tricking figuring out what role to give them.

I always liked the shock vipers.  A brilliant repaint that was something new and looked awesome.  I wish I had more of both colors, but I'm thankful for the few I have.

Now I need to check the condition of mine to make sure they're not discoloring.

Nice. Those figures were popular for quite a while, but have fallen off.

I've often wonder how the 2002 Serpentor would be viewed if these figures had been released at retail.

Including the Venom Cycle was a really good choice!

If I had some of these I'd probably never use them... But I still wish I had a ton of them. It'd be nice if TBM would make some.

While the red ones were 1 per case, they were really common and cheap through the early 2010's.  Since then, they've all disappeared and you pay through the nose for them.  I don't know where they all went.

I really like the idea of Shock Vipers.  In practice, though, I never use them.  It's too hard to find a role for them.  And, there's lots of other figures who photograph better to fill their purpose.

I also wasn't happy to discover that the upper arms on all my V1 Shock Vipers are discoloring.
