This makes perfect sense for the line. It's something a parent would pick up to start a collection for their kid after seeing the film. Two core characters and a trooper seems like a perfect intro pack for new, younger fans. Not everyone out there is like us, all scrambling to get them all on their release date.
Not only are you cripplingly ignorant, you whine about it as well.

That would make sense but right above them are going to be the single carded figures....that have been on the shelf since launch... This should have been a preview set or a set they sell at a movie theatre at a premium price first day of the show..that would make a huge killing for them. Or releasing thses in a store that has no other ROC stuff on single cards woul dmake sense.
But it is just more peg warming garbage to get in the way of other product liek the exclusives and STUFF we do want. There is actually way to much garbage for younger kids clogging valuable retail space right now as it is...we don't need more...even repaints of these 3...
If the release them way after the movie like the did the india jones 3 packs it will be awful results...those things were everywhere till they blew em out clearance style.

It's not a bad set, definitely as a gift for a younger/new GI Joe fan.

Only appeal would be as a Mint in Box collectable type of thing. Otherwise? As useless as a condom dispensing machine in the Vatican.

I don't know what to think about the sky sweeper.
Its a blue firebat with some extra weapons.
But since "Air Raid" was a name for one of the Transformer Aerialbots. I might be tempted. Also "Rollbar" was a throttlebot. Ha.

Pretty much off topic, but does anyone know if there are plans to release a toy of the aircraft that is seen in the trailers where the Joes are unloading into a hangar bay?
They look pretty awesome.

isnt this kind of a common thing? new movie comes out, stores not normally known for selling toys have exclusive sets of preexisting figures that are the same aside for packaging but for a little cheaper than buying each one separately...i remember this used to happen pretty often as a kid. seems like a reasonable thing for hasbro to do actually.
