I think the CG is ugly. Sorry. Never really dug the Python patrol.
I might pick up Tripwire, and definately a couple divers, maybe Stormshadow.
But in my opinion this whole wave is kinda lame. Nothing to get excited over.

Well full knowing wave 12 was a repaint wave as well as the recent finalization of the cast of characters, I pretty much remarked in the other threads what these variants would be. I do think this is the weakest wave to date (excluding wave 4, as that was direct repacks) & wave 8 was much better because there was some new tooling & a better cast of characters. My thoughts:
TripWire (desert/mass device): I am hoping the final does have smooth pads (shown) but a more desert themed color, as this one seems just green again, & to close to the comic version
Storm Shadow (Ninja Gear): This is an okay kitbash, although I think the stark white makes him look like an apprentice, or an early version of the Resolute design, I think I would have preferred a little more color to him, maybe some brown like he had in DD SS mini series.
Cobra Diver: Called it. Mass Device all the way. One of my faves of the bunch. Should be more red though in his pallette.
Cobra Trooper (hybrid): I like change in every figure but this one seems a bit odd at this point... with the mix of comic/cartoon colors, but as I said I like differences, this one is just not so hot even with the differences.
CG (Python Patrol): Cool.
Ripper (cartoon): Cool acceptable repaint.
Everyone will complain this wave is a "miss" until it comes out, & then they will all complain they can't find it. Happened with wave 8, & it will happen here too...

someone mentioned earlier about the first two waves of next year containing resolute characters. As far as I know that hasnt been confirmed so no one should read that as the truth. The resolute might just be a separate line. Just because they were in wal marts computers doesnt mean that those are wave 13 and 14.
Earlier this year Hasbro said they were putting out 8 waves in 2008. So this being a bonus wave is not true either unless you consider the whole 25th line a bonus, which I do.

Not overwhelming impressed, but I'll buy at least one of each Cobra for my MOSC collection.
I do like the diver, at least it's something different.

I have to ask this -
All of you saying Crimson Guard is horrible, ugly, plaid, what is Hasbro thinking....you people obvioulsy arent Vintage Joe fans becuase that is IDENTICAL to the PP CG back in the day. If you are a Python Patrol fan, that fig is SPOT on.
Also did you really expect them to pack the MASS Device elements with something everyone was going to buy?? Its called MARKETING and SALES - put an accessory you know everyone wants with a figure not many would buy = SALES.
HASBRO is a buisness, they want $$, not to make things for people because they have nothing better to do. Remember at the end of the day all it is about to the company is profits. Both on the sales end and saving as much on the production end as possible.
Bring back the Annv Collection NOW!!!

I'd guess you'll see a Resolute icon up in the corner where the current Comic or Cartoon logos are.
