I want to see what these "Omega", or "G.I. Joe Resolute" figures look like.
I wonder if they are going to be similar to the animated Clone Wars figs.

Wild Bill/Scrap Iron: Ok, not great, but OK. I would buy for the Scrap Iron
SE/Hard Master: I think I will pass. Not a huge ninja fan
Beach Head/Mainframe(Dataframe): These 2 look weird to me. I will probably pass.
Pilot Scarlett: This looks alright. I don't know anything of the foreign figs but I would get this.
Cobra Eel: Love it
Airborne: Love it
Zartan : I like it better than the other version, and more masks mean he won't be stuck with just the Jesus disguise.
Cobra Flint: Ok
Matt Tracker: As a child of the 80s, I hate this. Big time pass.
A.W.E Striker and Leatherneck: like the desert vehicle not real impressed with Leatherho
Skyhawk and Lift Ticket: Not a fan of LT, but LOVE the new skyhawk
Watermoccassin and Coppafeel: Love the boat, loathe the dopey CH
Fang/Claw set: I do like the vehicles and don't hate the pilots.
Overall I do like what we've been shown thus far.

Thought I would weigh in on everything after I have had a while to process all that I have seen.
WB/Scrap- Iron- Solid but I will still mod SI some.
Data(Main)frame/Beach Head- The surprise here is the more v1 accurate Beach Head. Will have to mod MF.
Hard Master/SE- I’m not sure about that Hard Master. He looks cool, but it does not strike me as something he would wear.
Pilot Scarlett(Glenda)- Pass. Had this been a straight re-paint, I might have gone for it which is weird…
Flint- Will prob get for the arms but pass otherwise.
EELS- Perfect! Will be getting multiples.
Matt Tracker- I’m surprised by how much I like this. It is nuts but so is collecting toys at 31.
Zartan- Big letdown. This figure had so much potential. The biggest problem for me is the reuse of Gung-Ho’s torso. Too damn long. I will fix but this is disappointing.
Skyhawk w/ Lift Ticket- Perfect. This is the piece I am looking forward to the most. Wow!
Claw/Fang- Getting for sure…who wants the pilots?
Water Moccasin- Am I the only one who noticed that this is a new mold? I mean it is not just a reworking but entirely new! I think it is way too small but looks nice nonetheless. I will get for sure.
Awe Stirker w/SMB Leatherneck- Sigh.

Well I will probably get all....just because I pre-order from BBTS, otherwise some I would skip.
On a side note did they show the Marvel 3.75 figs yet?

(switching topics) As a kid, I loved my Zartan figure. As I got older, I didn't like that look so much to the point where I really liked the updated 25th version over the old version. I had every intention of not liking the remade Zartan until I saw it last night. I absolutely love it. I guess there's no denying nostalgia!

I'd love to see it if it follows the same quality/build as the 25th line and recent Star Wars: i really hate the Marvel Legends scale and thought the sculpts were terrible at Toybiz and worse at Hasbro.
Not a line i'd get everything from, but if done well would definitely pick up some faves like Modern Iron Man, Spidey, Iron Fist...
My 25th Most Wanted List:
1. Tunnel Rat <-CHECK! 2. General Hawk (v2)<-CHECK! 3. Leatherneck <-CHECK(kinda...)
4. Jinx 5. Dusty <-CHECK! 6. Snow Serpent <-CHECK! 7. Tele-Viper <-CHECK(kinda...)
8. Falcon<-CHECK (kinda...) 9. Footloose <-CHECK! 10. Recondo <-CHECK!
9 down, 1 to go ~ but i really want a new Leatherneck and Falcon

You know what, Randall? I've been a fan & collector since 82. Whereas everyone shunned EVERYTHING that came out in the early 90's, I had it all. Every Star Brigade repaint, every Street Fighter figure. I had every G.I.Joe Extreme figure, every Sgt. Savage figure. I'm no where near a "Johnny come lately" collector and I love that Matt Tracker is in the line. Imagine that? A new, different character! OMGWTFBBQLOL! How DARE hasbro branch out and try to make something new rather than give us something that "you" want. So, would you have preferred another repaint?
So, for you and the rest of your "hard core fan" crew that can't seem to look outside of the box for even two minutes...here's an idea:
Since new characters that aren't based on the line seem to offend you on such a profound level...don't buy tracker, or collect something else.

okay so this "be a GI Joe" contest thing... is it just me or is this not what was originally planned?
i thought they were going to laser scan your head and MAKE an actual figure with your head on it, similar to what sideshow did at SDCC '03 with the clone trooper.
now they are just going to photoshop your face on one of 8 pre-exsisting joe card art? LAME. i could do that myself at home.
somebody please correct me if i'm wrong, and i hope i am.

I love everything so far except the cobra pilots and the SE/Hard Master pack. I never cared for Mighty Muggs, but those Joes are the Shizzle. And did I spy an Optimus Prime
The pilot Scarlett looks good and I guess is supposed to be tribute to Glenda, but what is with the legwarmers??? I hope she is re released in olive green later.
