Ambush in the Scrub
Description: There's sort of an unannounced desert theme in the 1990 series, if you view the Sonic Viper as a desert uniform.

Thanks! I thought the AP rifles would give them a different feel from their identity as Sonic Vipers so they'd work better in the desert.

Welcome aboard!  Excellent scene.  What an army, you don't see those vipers in numbers like that.  They look great with those accessory pack rifles.  Great posing too.

Excellent Sonic Viper army!

The 1990 desert theme is pretty on point, actually. Sonic Law and Tunnel Rat both work in that theatre as does Airwave(?) and a couple of the drivers.

Thanks! Bullhorn is in that scene too, but invisible in this shot--you could argue he's in a desert outfit too. I've wondered about the desert theme for a long time. I would assume Desert Storm is why Cobra finally got a real desert trooper in 1991, and why Dusty was reissued--but I don't know if Hasbro could turn designs around even that fast, since Desert Storm was just a few months earlier. I was buying Joes as a kid at the time and for some reason the first one I remember thinking of as Desert Storm-inspired was 1992 Duke.

Welcome to the site! I really like how far those Vipers go into the depth, it looks like there's an endless amount of them.

That's a good point about the desert theme, too. At a glance, one might assume it tied into the Gulf War, but that was a year later. I wonder what might've prompted this choice?
