I am sorry, these dvd battle packs are for the birds!
When I heard of these packs, I was hoping to see Colonel Sharp and Admiral Ledger.
Hasbro got the hatless Lady Jaye right after 24 years but what the $%&#!
All I see are silly repaints!
How many Snake Eyes, Storm Shadows and Cobra Commanders do we need?
Hasbro quit screwing with your fans. No more of those guys unless you show their faces. What is the matter? 25+ years not long enough to make a figure which shows their actual face? This is silly and insulting.
The figure with C.C. face should have a vac-chrome helmet that is removable. The cheap silver paint is annoying and not comic/cartoon accurate.
Beyond that, the comic packs and dvd packs build quality is a little inferior to the single carded joes.
The eyeballs are not painted well.
I have seen more figures with off target painted eyeballs that it makes the figures look like Sloth off of the old 80's movie Goonies.
This happened to me at WalMart when the Lady Jaye DVD pack was out. I had been waiting months to get this figure and when the 2 boxes came here, both the eye sockets sucked @## so I didn't buy it. I have been forced to find a couple good ones off of expensive ebay.
Beyond that, was there even a walking skeleton in Arise Serpentor?
If hasbro was going to give the fans things we never dreamed that we would never need, how about the Virus Monster that busted up Mindbender and Slaughter both?
Personally, I always wanted to see Serpentor with the dark brown/orange sceme off of the G.I.JOe comic #49 commercial. It looked alot more regal than the gold sceme they settled on later.
Also, for the Pyramid Set, why not Alpine, Quick Kick, and Bazooka? That was the trio in that show. Then again, how about Admiral Ledger?
In the Weather Dominator pack, Lady Jaye was a solid choice, but why not Sparks and Colonel Sharp? Again, I was wanting these guys since 1984 when the show came out and they give us a repaint of Roadblock and Destro.
My fear is now the final set.
What crappy repaints should we expect now?
I think we as fans are entitled to the blue skined Mara character, Colonel Sharp, Admiral Ledger, Sparks, and a long BLONDE haired COVERGIRL like in the original mini series like she was supposed to be.
There that is my vote.
We won't get it.
We will get a repaint of Breaker, the kid who almost burned down the house in the public safety break, and the stupid scientist who implanted Shipwreck with hypnotic secrets. Oh, and also Admiral Lattimer who retired from the US Navy and joined Cobra.
Maybe also "Ulrich, the Batterer" They Norse Viking who Serpentor was based on with his battleaxe "Skull Splitter."
I really thought with this 25 anniversary thing Hasbro really would listen to the fans. Turns out, they dont' care in the least. I am so disappointed and annoyed.
All I wanted was a internationally accurate Glenda and Cobra Mortal with the chrome-vac paint job.
Then Hasblo decides to do Glenda but use the Red hair from scarlett and not the blonde hair.

Dude! You never see Cobra Commander's face. That's the whole point of him never appearing without it. He looses the mysterious air, if you know what he looks like. And, one of the packs will have a CC with a new sculpt chromed face mask.

I simply cannot wait for these sets for several reasons.
1. Serpentor looks bad ass and makes the current one look like crap. However, I think him having a gold colored skirt thing makes him look bland, so I plan to take the green one from the other Serpentor, which should make him look cooler.
2. I have never seen the Pyramid of Darkness arc, so this will be great to see.
3. I always wanted to won Arise Serpentor Arise, but never got to.
4. I do agree, Dr Mindbender and Sgt Slaughter should have been in this set instead of the Atila. On the other hand, I like Dusty, so it is nice to see him get a figure. I just wish they would stop doing so many freaking repaints and give us the rest of the Dreadknocks, Cover Girl (who would have been perfect for either MASS or Weather).
When they do the Movie pack, they MUST have Sgt Slaughter!!! However, I am still trying to figure out why they put movie figures in the Best Of pack. Do we even know what episodes are in that pack yet, and how many episodes there will be? I hope at least Skeletons in the Closet is on it, along 4 episodes I have never seen before.

In reference to Quick Kick, anyone think that "karate chop hand" could be replaced with another figure's normal hand? I was happy to see QK made, but just like the fist on Shipwreck and CC that gives you only one hand to pose the figure with a weapon. I know in some of the cartoons QK was shooting a rifle, it would look kind of silly with him shooting one handed from the hip, with the karate hand waving menacingly in the air. Just my two cents tho.

I like the Bludd in this pack versus his single carded version.
I do not like the CC or SE. But I do like SE's sword and I really like the cartoon color scheme.
I can probably fix QK's judo-chop hand by replacing it with someone else's.

My top 10 reactions to the 2 new DVD packs:
#10 - AWESOME!!! I was looking for another hooded Cobra Commander in yet another color VARIATION.
#9 - Friggin spring-loaded cannon on the BAT?!?!? SHIT!!!
#8 - Finally a Quick Kick. And just as I wanted... only he looks like Sylvester Stallone, He can't bend his ankles & he can only shake hands with his left hand.
#7 - What the HELL am I going to do with the Atilla the Hun skeleton?
#6 - Shake the box and see if Dr Mindbender is hiding in there somewhere
#5 - Better get Dusty now before the fix his cloth color and re-release him with the VAMP.
#4 - Major Bludd must be gay 'cause he's still wearing Zartan's pants.
#3 - Does Snake Eyes have an articulated visor?
#2 - Is there any way to make my obsession for purchasing re-released 3 3/4 pieces of plastic a tax write-off?
#1... Why can't it be "Pyramid of Darkness" with the following figures:
Shipwreck w/Saxaphone (w/Polly in hat),
Snake Eyes dressed as Boy George, (w/ Timber in hat)
Zartan with the Fatal Fluffies?
... only then will I be happy!
