Joe of the Week: Python Copperhead v2

The Joe of the week is Python Copperhead v2. He is part of the Python Patrol, an elite Cobra  unit. I have stated many times this I enjoy all the repaints from Tigerforce, Python Patrol, and Slaughters Marauders.

This figure was picked up as part of the Big Joe Haul 2018.

The figures design is a good one. Copperhead v1 and v2 share the same parts, but the paint on the Python is much better. I will go as far as to say that the V1 Copperheads paint is kind of ugly, I know they were going for a southern US swamp look, but I dont think it worked. The Python paint scheme is very fitting. The only real problem I have with his appearance is his yellow dipper of a waist looks a bit out of place.

Its interesting how they revised Gung-Ho comment on Copperheads file card:

V1: Gung-Ho says: “Sure. I know the type. They’re all around the Gulf Coast. Trash. Drifters. They can drive a swamp buggy like the devil himself, rebuild a V-8 with a coat hanger and spit, fight all night and raise cain ’til the cock crows. They got a heart fulla gimme and a mouth full o’ much obliged…”

V2: “You know the type. The Python Copperhead can drive a swamp buggy like the devil himself, rebuild a V-8 with a coat hanger and toothpick and start a ruckus that will last until daybreak. Live hard and fast is his motto, and he stands by it 100%. The Python is all take and no give!

So what version of Copperhead is better?
