I'm having a Twilight Zone moment... is this... the... Hisstank?
Reimagined versions of ARAH characters? African American Ripcord? More Sci-Fi than military? BFG spring-loaded missles? and it's all met with almost 100% love?! Whaaaaaat?
Seriously though, I'm not complaining one bit. My wallet's been on the sidelines for the ROC stuff, but there were only two ways Hasbro could have brought me back in as a collector. A) Pick up right where the 25th line left of and don't stop updating ARAH till I get an articulated Bullhorn or B) Go completely modern warfare with it... Beachhead 2015... Forces of Valor meets ARAH.
They went B, and I'm going to the bank. Congrats Hasbro. Not only on releasing some cool stuff, but winning over a very tough crowd.

I absolutely love that Compound Bow that the Shadow Tracker comes with....
The accessories these new figures come with have me in complete awe.

That Recondo looks hardcore! He is NOT f'ing around! I hope they change the torso on that new Storm Shadow. I'm assuming he's supposed to be bare chested, but it looks like they just painted a shirt flesh-colored. That bike is ripping Robotech's Mospeada Cyclone hard, but it's cool to get a new female character. Good stuff. I can look past the repeat characters, if the figures suck, I get to save $$$.
I may have to break down and buy those International figures. I could make customs of them (already did Redmack) but to me it's not the same... And they look so bad-ass.
Save the upcoming Wal-Mart stuff, it appears the "classic" ARAH style thing is over, but If have no problem with change, especially if it looks this great! The accessories and sculpts on a lot of these are sick! It's a good time to be a Joe fan.

I'm liking the new stuff.
Look at the right hand of the tracker. It has two fingers molded in a bow pull position. Nice detail there. Love the hair. Not quite so sure of the face? looks like a clear face plate or something? Love the look though. Nice vest, pants, awesome bow.
Training duke.... hum... that might be the first pass for me. Or I might pick him up and give him some of the Pit commando gear. Not sure ... I'm either going to like it or hate it when I get it in hand.
As for Doc... .he's not supposed to be cammo guys. In the artic, unless you're a combat troop, you don't wear white. Wearing white makes you hard to find. You wear bright primary colors on purpose. Doc's the medic. He's not sneaking though an ice crevice to pop up undetected. He's the one they call out when someone gets shot in the face.
I will say I LOVE The "Snow pants" legs. I got my first Ice Vipers yesterday, and I love them. I'm also loving that they're reusing them alot. That Artic threat Shipwreck looks awesome. I'm going to have to get a Tanker to help me out with that one. No TRU up here. I need him and Bench press and that new Sting raider. lol nice. Sadly we have a target and other than the Ram, we kinda got the smelly end of that stick. Trouble bubble? Meh Battle gun? meh. The glider with Ace is nice but... I just bought that thing with Grand slam...I'm not using THAT glider.. much less another one. and that "Ace" looks like Slipstream to me.
Hoping for some more new stuff today. That Tracker figure is awesome but hopin' for something big and nice.

Looks like HASBRO hired away all the artist and sculptors from BBI, Forces of Valor, and 21st Century toys, locked them up in a room, gave them lots of money and red bull and said "make GI Joe look awesome under pain of death!!!" And by God, they succeeded!!!
