Ok, here'smy thoughts.
Tripwire: Lame, another repaint of a guy that was mediocre at best in the GI Joe genre. He was cool yes, but come on. This could have been someone else. Hell, Airtight got more face time and deserved a slot before this repaint. The comic pack and the Environmental Pack I would think would have been enough.
StormShadow: Thank god they made this guy. I thought we were gonna be screwed when the line discontinued and we didn't get enough different StormShadows to fill an Eggcrate. Whew. Btw, this figure is lame. Could have made this Billy buy using a different head and same body. Lame
Cobra Diver : Why? What is the obsession with this small appearance of guys? wasn't Baroness enough? We have the Eels already... Just stop! Lame
CobraTrooper : I kinda like this one but I think his Mask should have been black. Also, they should have picked a Cobra Officer that had a little backstory or maybe a Flamethrower on his back or something.
Python Patrol CrimsonGuard : This is by far the lamest figure made to date. You thought Serpentor was bad? OMG look at this reject. It's like they let your little 2 your old Nephew use a crayola box to figure out this guys colors. Python Patrol Officer was cool cause it was low-key...but what the hell are they thinking with this Plaid reject.Lame
Ripper: This screams "we just want your money" I am dissapointed Has-No-Bro of mine. Make another Dam DreadKnock you Failures! Zanzabar! RoadPig! MonkeyWrench! Anyone! Lame

Tripwire's ok...would rather use him as Lightfoot.
Storm Shadow: I suppose he'd be useful for a custom JvC Storm Shadow project. Just another SS to me though, so meh.
COBRA Diver: Looks more like a COBRA Air Devil to me. Just remove the flippers.
COBRA Trooper: Just another Trooper, meh.
CG: Nicely done...I just wish when a Crimson Guard is not done in crimson colors, you call him something other than Crimson. Like in this case, a Python Guard.
Ripper: I think those colors will remind me more of Gnawgahyde. Just find a bald head(like Serpentor's), replace the Ripper head, and repaint facial hair. Also, you can just leave him as is and use him as Dreadnok Crusher too.

Sadly, unless Hasbro has a trick up their sleeve we're not going to see a lot of the classics people seem to want (myself included). At least not prior to the movie stuff taking over. I suppose the door is always open for a return of the classics after the movie hype dies down, but only time will tell.

If nothing else, you could use that Tripwire for a custom Sci-Fi.

Why don't they use the plastic to make new character. There still lot of popular ones that haven't touched yet. I might get the Troopers and the Divers for troop building. I might get Tripwire, Tripwire because the comic pack one I got has a bum leg.

Do it this way and they keep everyone around until they are ready to end the line.
