Omega Force is Resolute from the new cartoon.

...this most likely means we're getting at least 1-2 ore waves of vehicles then i figured we would. i figured we'd get 12 packs before the end of the 25th line, and it looks like it's going to be at least 15 (plus the UBP and Jets)
so what, we've got:
w.01: Black Hiss/VAMP/RAM-vs-Flight Pod/Armadillo -vs- Stupid Flying Snake Thing
w.03 Tan AWE Striker/FANG + CLAW
w.04 (probably) Skyhawk/Water Moccasin
w.05 Stinger/whatever Atck Cannon CL is...
w.06/07? Ferret Whirwind/Silver Mirage -vs- S/Arctic Hiss Tank
all the waves have had 2 new packs except #1, but i'm thinking since (most likely) the Arctic Hiss Tank is just a repaint, they may just do 3 new ones in this wave.
I'm really hopeful that the Arctic Hiss Tank Driver's colors are a good match w/ the extreme conditions set. (i still think overall i'd have prefered a Desert Hiss instead ~ a desert colored tank just makes more sense IMHO, but i'm still excited for the Arctic one.)
I'm also curious who they'll add in for pilots on these new ones: so far, whoever was on the original box art if it didn't come with a figure has been a possible indicator, at least with the Flight Pod and RAM. Some guesses:
Whirlwind: i'm going to say Rock n' Roll, in the first versions colors but w/ the new Mutt arms seen on Friday from the comic pack version.
Silver Mirage: while Mutt, Bazooka and Duke are featured on the vintage art, i don't really see any of them coming into play ~ Dukes been released umpteen times and has several more releases coming up (barf), the 25th Bazooka sculpt i think is probably way to big, and Mutt doesn't make a lot of sense to me. i'm callin' Lady Jaye (hat version): she's one of the few early characters not getting a re-release in the current revision packs and I always associated her with the Mirage from the comics...
Ferret: the vintage art has Storm Shadow and Firefly, who both will be getting re-released in Hall of Heroes right around the same time. I always associated the Twins w/ the Ferret though. so my 2 thoughts are, either a random-packed Twin (i.e. they'd do both in even numbers) or the Red-shirt Buzzer seen on the convention card sets.
Atk Cannon: if it's the HAL, i see 82 Grand Slam, or if it's the Slugger, then i think Thunder would be easy enough to cobble together from existing parts.
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

I'm very happy they are releasing a single pack Lt. Falcon. I just hope they make some minor alterations to the 2-pack version to make this one perfect.
