Aaaaaancient scans of Cobra Commander's battle armor from the last few issues of Marvel's original G.I. Joe comic. To date, this design has never received a toyline counterpart, which is kind of striking considering how much the modern G.I. Joe toys take inspiration from the comics. I had attempted to remove the backgrounds from all three of the images, with varying degrees of success. I don't think I have the unaltered versions anymore...
this armor and a specially-manufactured Ninja Disorienting Hallway installed in the Silent Castle,
Cobra Commander was able to defeat and capture the then-heroic Storm Shadow. This led
to Snake-Eyes mounting a rescue attempt for his sword brother - and surely he'd fall for CC's new
tricks, too! However, Snake-Eyes (seen in the background of the third
pic) was able to get through the special Ninja Disorienting Hallway
by... CLOSING HIS EYES! Then he hit Cobra Commander with a flechette round, because he decided to rescue Storm Shadow in a commando-y way instead of a ninja-y way for some reason. I'm not sure why this ignited CC, but it's been a while since I've read the story. Maybe Snake-Eyes had a flamethrower, too?
