Note: All characters are to appear as they are below... no major changes! I want to see THESE characters.... not some character with a different look but with the same name. THESE. CHARACTERS. Slight tweaks to improve and "de-silly" (to avoid any "Street Fighter" groaning) is fine... but keep them very close to the original designs. They CAN work in "real life"... I can see it in my head and it's rad! To give you an idea, I've always pictured the feel of "my" movie along the lines of Aliens-Era James Cameron, Blade Runner-Black Hawk Down Ridley Scott, 1st Matrix-Wachowski Bros and Paul "Bourne Ultimatum" Greengrass.
Now onto the list!
TOP 10 COBRAS I WANT TO SEE IN THE MOVIE!!!!
1) COBRA VIPER
3) CRIMSON GUARD
5) STORM SHADOW
6) COBRA SOLDIER & OFFICER
8) COBRA COMMANDER; Helmet & Hooded
9) MAJOR BLUDD
10) H.I.S.S. DRIVER
man, there's a lot of cool Cobras... ok, TOP 20!!!!.....11) ZARTAN (with Swamp Sled)
12) SNOW SERPENT
13) WILD WEASEL
14) COBRA EEL
....and I even want to see some of the sillier characters (even if on vid screen in the background!)....
15) TOMAX & XAMOT
18) RIPPER (and the Dreadnoks have to drink grape soda atleast once & like it!)
19) CROC MASTER (quick vid screen appearance will suffice)
20) BIG BOA (quick vid screen appearance will suffice)
