I'm confused as well, because if this is for discount chains, why no weapons? The Tele-Viper for example, is NOTHING without his weapons. Plus theres already stacks of these at most discount chains.
Hasbro flooding the market with subpar figures will hurt the 25th line in the longrun.
BTW, the regular VvV are jacked up to $4.99 at KB Toys in an attempt to leech off the back of 25th Joes. I pity the poor parents who buy them at that price when over at Big Lots you can get them for $2

These may be the ideal buy for all those parents posting here that we collectors are doing their kids out of new Joes.
If the figures are going to be played with 'to destruction' (as the Dads often proudly declare!) then surely these will do, leaving the 25th/Modern Era line for us.

I am kind of pissed that they would even do this. Hopefully the stores don't utilize pegs that should be getting used for the 25th figures for these out-dated lumps of plastic. I'm kind of flabbergasted, in wonderment and generally a little perturbed at this. Oh well, I know I won't be spending my money on any of this stuff.

A good way to get more people involved! Cheap Joes. Cool! Plus I dig the card art. I will get them alone just for that maybe. It isn't like I am spending a mint.
Don't hate me because you got banned from a Toy Forum.

I was so excited thinking these were single pack figures from the comic pack. Man was I wrong. Ah well. Dissapointing without their original accessories.

cant say i see the point of these... unless, like others have mentioned, Hasbro has a ton of them lying around in the warehouse. if they really aren't coming with accessories, i'll be steering clear.
anyone else notice that the Tele-Viper looks like he is doing a sad little 'white-guy dance'.

I remember reading in a Q&A that Hasbro said they would only be doing 25th-style figs going forward. On the other hand, Hasbro's shamelessness knows no bounds so this might be true.
I doubt this junk will ever see the pegs on stores such as Target, Wal-Mart, or TRU though.

I think I would buy them just for the art on the card. Than Make a custom single card for the 25th line.
