I was having second thoughts on a lot of them, mostly because I didn't want to pay the high prices for individual figures on eBay since I couldn't find most of them locally before other than Destro, Duke and the rest of wave one. Today at Target I picked up about 15 figures - Agent Helix, Sgt. Flash, 2 Pit Commandos, Ice Viper, Elite Viper, General Hawk, Snake Eyes P.P. w/gray wolf, Scarlett Desert Ambush and more for $6.99 each.
All I have seen for the past few weeks is the first 6 from wave one over and over again all over the place. This morning was the first time I found almost all of them in one place. There was over 100 figures on pegs. It was a beautiful site. I was caught up in buying them when I kept going through row after row of figures. It was early in the morning, so no scalpers had cherry picked it. I kept piling up the figures on the side until I went and got one of those red baskets to put them in. They had about 3 of every figure up to wave 3.
I was only going to get 5 from the first three waves, but to date, I have picked up 22. They are better than I thought. What is funny is when I compare them to the 80's figures with the bright neon colors and then I see these figures like the elite viper with dark, dulled down realistic colors, I wondered why I wanted more of the 80's figures done 25th style. I am happy with the ROC carded figures. The only thing I want to see past these is more Resolute figures.
I really like that Pit Commando with all of that gear - extra helmets and head gear, guns and accessories with no spring loaded launcher stuff. A near perfect figure. The only thing that bothers me about this line is the baby blue pajama party outfits they wear. I was hoping for more of a black and gray urban assault look instead of this baby blue. Other than that, they are great.

Some of the figures look better than I expected, and a lot of new announcements are far more enticing than the first couple waves, but out of the initial reveals, I've pretty much stuck to my plan of figures approximating a 25th release (and Matrix-duel SS/SE, which I might still end up returning in the next 45 days).

I really didn't want anything based on early stuff I saw in Toyfare. But when I saw them in person I thought a few of them were actually much better looking (Cobras mostly).
Now I have a real appreciation for this line. I've been buying a lot and have a lot in my "want list".

There was a lot I didn't think I would buy. The new Eel, Elite Viper, and Crimson viper are my favorites.
Sgt Stone and Sgt Stalker are now best friends and plan Cobra hunting trips on the weekends.
I swore to skip the Delta-6 suits but now I am troop building them so they can be customed into a SHIELD assault squad. This squad will be tasked with capturing rogue meta-humans who are in violation of the Super Human Registration Act.

I was going to get 'a couple' but stick to pick-n-choose.... but now I've got them all. It started with buying HD in his regular clothes because I wanted a HD... then I found the armor one... then just down hill from there picking up all the figures "I didn't intend to buy"......

I changed my plans yet again, lol.
I was going to use Deep-Six as a singular character, now I'm thinking of troop building it for a combat diver unit.
So I'm troop building: Neo-Vipers, Zartan (to use as Joe MPs), PIT Commandos and now Deep-Sixs.
My wallet HATES me.

I've done about what I expected, which is buy some of the figures that I like best and pass on the rest. A big reason is that the 7 packs kicked my wallet's ass this summer, and if I start buying more ROC, I won't know where to stop. There are more things coming out that I'll get later.
