4. Jinx 5. Dusty <-CHECK! 6. Snow Serpent <-CHECK! 7. Tele-Viper <-CHECK(kinda...)

WOW! Nice find!! I'm defiantly getting the Python Patrol Crimson Guard, the figure look rad! Gotta get the Cobra Trooper with red- anything to build up the Cobra army! The cartoon colored Ripper looks weak but hey, just check out my handle, you know I'm gonna get it anyways!

I think i'll just get a CG and Tripwire (for my tiger force version), outside of that, I'm leaving this wave go.

I'll just get those with the mass elements, simply for the elements themselves. This wave does not interest me. I think Hasbro should seriously consider coming out with other characters like low-light and tunnel rat instead of re-doing already-released characters. This one's a downer after waves 10 and 11 in my book.
Maybe this is a filler wave?

Interestingly, there's an 'army builder' case available (for pre-order) at BBTS but it only features one of each trooper that came out. Maybe they should have modified the case in such a way that it had two or three of the choice ones like BATs, Eels, and Para-vipers. Then, it might interest army builders who missed out on pre-ordering the individual figs when they were posted.
Personally, I wouldn't get a variant of a figure that I already have unless that variant is good (Flint, for instance. Got the original and the TF, but am letting go of the Cobra trooper disguise version). It's good to be a non-completist.

Isnt this line based off toys of the 80's, using retro card design and all being close or similiar to the original figures??? I dont think we live in the 80's...I think us fans want characters from what we grew up with......repaints vs new characters? Its a pretty simple formula

We all agree that we would like a
single carded copperhead, scrap iron, dusty, alpine, quick kick
And other peoples favourites as well....
but really I doubt we are going to see any of these before the movie line, with the exception of blowtorch.
Yes for some of them hasbro could frankenstein and repaint, but as many people have said, if all the core characters are done, what will be left to buy. They have to leave out a few to keep people interested.
With that said, I am willing to wait and leave out characters I do not want as hasbro has made over 200+ and I am definitely not interested in a million CC's, destros, SS's and now even the troopers are getting a bit redundant.
You don't even need to army build them as hasbro has probably released around 10+ different trooper variations.
Maybe being a completist is exactly what hasbro is banking on for the collector numbers....
With that said, I loved every wave from 1-11 with half of 8 included, so I will chalk this up as a waste and hope they blow us away with the last 2 waves, but I am not holding my breath.
Duke Omega Force UPC = 0065356937101
Cobra Commander Omega Force UPC = 0065356937102
Cobra TRPR Omega Force UPC = 0065356937103
UPC = 0065356937423
Single Firefly UPC = 0065356937424
Single Blowtorch UPC = 0065356937104
Single Serpent UPC = 0065356932499
Besides we know 7 of the twelve which leaves 5 spots.
So unless they have 5 original characters that is that for this line until after the movie....
