The animation sequence and the live-action scene shared a similar theme: to reintroduce old characters and convince the viewer that the repainted toys are just as exciting as the first versions. Despite Michael Bell's role as the voice of Duke and Neil Ross shouting in Dusty's voice that "Duke is back" in the animation sequence, we sadly realize that the dialogue is not part of a story but simply a marketing gimick.
The Cobra Water Moccasin is a confusing addition to the scene because the base is located in a desert, judging by the shots of the base's exterior surroundings.
The last shot of the sequence, which features a tiger on a repainted Snow Cat roaring at the viewer, parallels the animation sequence for Cobra's response to the creation of Tiger Force - Python Patrol.
