cobra trooper...i dont keep up with the sigils' sizes and colors
ninja....that color is horrific.

I'll probaby get like 4 of the PCG and 1 of each of the rest. Still undecided on the new trooper. I might cave and buy a mess of them.

I have gotten every single so far. But this wave is pure garbage.
Anything but to face ourselves as we are...

I'm cool with the Tripwire. I passed on the comic pack because I didn't want another Cobra Commander. Cobra Commander is my favorite character and I think the more needless resculpts kind of cheapen him. As far as the others are concerned, I'm fine with having pretty much an entire wave I don't want and I'll not have to buy.

I like that the Cobra trooper is actually Cobra blue again, instead of that fluorescent blue that Flint and Bazooka Trooper were first shown to be... And back to black web gear... The only thing I hate is the INCONSISTENCY!
Gah, how hard is it to get the trooper right? My favorite so far is the first one in the Cobra 5-pack, Why can't they just release a troop-builder set with that guy in it? Keep the diaper crotch, he's the best Trooper so far.
The yellow-harness troopers have the red emblem, but red necks/red masks, and that mustard yellow crap. I don't want to have to paint ALL my troopers to somewhat match.
If he had just had a black mask, I could live with the flesh neck. WHY the red face masks? They stand out like an eyesore. Granted, behind the silver-emblem single-carded trooper, which I didn't have that much of an issue with, this is the third-best trooper behind the first release. At least it doesn't have that hideous yellow. Why can't they make a TRU Day-Watch 5-pack? Leave it blue, done.
The diver, while a tad redundant having EELs, at least matches the Baroness somewhat, so that's fine with me. See, repaint that makes sense.
Ninja viper, I could care less for, but the nurse-scrub color is bleh. Ripper, come on? Those jeans are ridiculously blue. I was fine with the first 3 Dreadnoks, they were great. Where the hell is Monkeywrench?
Tripwire, really? Do we need another exactly the same? I agree with previous comments, a new paint job would have been worth it. The first Tripwire in the CP was fantastic, why they couldn't put the M.A.S.S. element with someone else, I have no idea.
I've seen enough CGs, and that PP paintjob is horrendous, even if it's true to the original. If they're not going to do all of Python Patrol and Tiger Force, why do a few of them? I say give us more new characters before needless sub-group repaints. Just release more reissues, we'd be happy for that. You still get use of the molds, and no sense in silly repaints that are hideous.
