I don't understand all the negativity towards this wave, for a repaint wave I think they're doing a good job making it worth our while. The only ones I think are a waste are Tripwire and Ripper, but people kept asking for them on single cards and Hasbro is giving them what they want.
This wave is MUCH better than wave 1 2009, with Blowtorch and all rehash. The idea is to have one repaint wave, not several in a row.

Cobra figures are great but there is too many of them in this wave

I guess the new Ripper will keep his buddy Buzzer company while they warm the pegs together....
I"d get the Cobra Diver just for that gun!

How can Hasbro expect us to want to pay $8.00+ Tax/Shipping for some of these repaints ?
I have a complete set of MOMC singles but may have to start to pick and choose from here.
Ripper and the Ninja Viper will be my first passes.
Why would anyone buy a Ripper figure that has been repainted in none classic colors for $8.00
when the Comic 2-pack is $10.00 ?
BBTS already has the comic 2 pack on clearance for $5.50.
The repaint thing is great to me when they are $4.00 boxset or $5.00 comic pack figures but not
I’ll pass on a nurse viper. Its not even close to the original. At the last second the decided to not
release another “Storm Shadow” so the painted him teal and used the classic Ninja Viper title.
The Storm Shadow looked much better. I would have like the Storm Shadow and a proper Ninja Viper.
The Cobra Diver and Crimson Guard look great packaged and I will be picking them up.
Can anyone tell if this Tripwire is slightly tanner then the green first release ?

Why would they change the card art on the Crimson Guard, but not the Trooper? Eh, whatever. I might pick them all up to keep on card, and open the Tripwire. He looks the coolest!

The red facemasks AND yellow webgear bug me the most. I don't know why they started adding in white, I guess to look more cartoon-accurate... But even those aren't consistently painted, and you STILL only get 1 per 3- or 4-pack.

Overall a kool wave. However, I don't like Ninja VIper because he is supposed to have a non-hooded head. And Ripper is looking a bit bright.
Shiet, I fear the bright and fluorescent is coming real soon!?
