I'd like to get the Snake Eyes figure- Where can we get these, because I haven't seen 'em yet???
Also... I have a small rant. I'm kind of getting tired of all the collectors making it hard on me here in Wisconsin in trying to obtain figures!! I can't get crap and if anyone can help me out, I would be so thankful. Figures

Snake Eyes v4
Cobra Commander Battle Armor
When I think of anymore I'll post 'em

These remind me of The Corps!® 1/6 scale... except not quite as detailed. And the green packaging is repulsive. LIME green digital camo?
These do not need to compete with Sideshow, whose products I have never purchased due to personal preference. To appeal to me these need only supply a decent base and accessories for customization. They simply don't though. The sculpting and design elements are 10+ years behind the times.

i'm not interested in these at all. infact i'd go so far as to say they look cheap. the only chance i would buy one is on clearance where i'm sure these are headed anyway. i'll buy sigma six before these anyday...

Y'know, aside from the fact Dusty didn't look anything like his RAH toy, I actually thought the first wave had fairly nice figures (and I'm actually looking at buying Flint and maybe the Cobra), but this wave is a huge drop off in quality.
First, the cards loose the wonderful painted backgrounds. The accessories are weak on all figures, and there are some outright bizarre choices like SE's and SS's camo pants, SE's moon boots, and torpedo's oddly fitting gear. It almost seems like they really aren't trying with this assortment, and from what I saw at the con, the next round of figures aren't getting any better.
For $15, the product we're getting is worse than what we were getting back in 2002-05 for $10

No thanks... I'll be sticking to Sideshow for any 12" Joes.

They should have just concentrate on TFAC Joes & leave the 12" to Sideshow.

For 12" joes, these are no better than the VVV versions. These have unused potential. The VVV 12"ers weren't selling that well, and I don't think these will either. The new head sculpts are nice, but the super articulated bodies should have been used for these.
Sigma 6 went the same route going with clothes and weaponry, but did it better. I don't see these figures lasting long at retail.

i used the super articulated 12" bodies and use the clothes and head from the non SA 12" joes....and they are a ton better....
i like the snake eyes head and will use that for my custom 12" ver 1 snake......now torpedo with a lighter colored grey would look great...that little change can make torpedo the stand out figure of that wave
out of that 1st 12" wave i will get bazzoka thats the stand out figure ....the others i already have made better customs of
