You know all these photos are making me anxious to see what the Hall Of Heroes are going to look like. What can they possibly do to update these figures? Is it going to be something simple like minor changes to hands and gear? Will they be in different colors (I hope not)? Or will they have different parts?

I love the new sculpts, my only three minor complaints are the Viper with the Chrome face not being single carded, the Shipwreck forearms(I liked the more popeyeish look), & less cleavage on Lady Jaye. I am so happy about the Flint, that was my top wanted figure updated.

Thanks, DEstro, for the larger pics.
sigh... after seeing them up closer, I'll probably end up buying these.
Who wants to bet that the Baroness' new body is from the movie figure?

People claiming these are mostly repaints should grab their figures and compare
You'll see it looks the same at first, but at closer inspection there are many new parts!!!
The Females got the most attention
These are SOOO AWESOME!!!
Lady Jaye - ALL NEW BODY SCULPT!
Only her head is re-used.
It looks like less Cleavage zipped up, but she has the pockets on her chest now and the accurate cowl that's upward in her neck. Shorter sleeves, wrist articulation at the gloves, new thighs with larger pockets, higher boots, new belt with pouch.
Flint - FINALLY FIXED
New Head sculpt, Webgear, Shotgun, TF Duke's upper arms, Shipwrecks' lower arms, Roadblock & Shipwreck gloves, different camo pants; stripes
Shipwreck - FIXED
New Head sculpt, New arms,
with messenger/explosives bag??? (Better for Snake Eyes?), brighter blue pants
With all New Polly Sculpt
Snake Eyes - Most Accurate v2 so far
Seems mostly like a repaint from the DVD Pack with new body sculpt and new sword sculpt.
With all New Timber Sculpt
Hawk - hmm...
new paint job, brighter colors.
Best new update is the painted goggles on the helmet.
But some details like his name seem to have faded.
The wave 9 one is pretty much great as it is.
Baroness - ALL NEW SCULPT!!!
WOW! The glasses look sooo much better now!
Only the hair is from the wave 8 which is great, that hair sculpt is perfect!
The Cobra Logo is sculpted on her chest which makes it stand out more. I'm not too fond of the silver webbing around her waist, but it does seem to give her more cleavage
Cobra Commander - Accurate
Well, yeah another but at least he has the cape!
And the cobra logo on the hood!
And the hood is darker as the suit which is accurate.
I like it.
Storm Shadow - Fixed Arms & Grey?!?
Ok, the new arm sculpt is sooo much better!~
It looks awesome! But, the grey belt & backpack should have been black and his boots white.
I'll definitely use these new arms on my v1 Storm Shadow to get a perfect Storm Shadow v1
Viper - FIXED & Chrome?!?
Well, He looks simply amazing!
Fixed wrists, even a patch on his left shoulder and the darker grey on his rifle is so much cooler.
The chrome vac is very cool, but...
What about the B.A.T. & Crimson Guards?
It'll be inconsistent with them...
I'll just keep the vac chrome on Destro & Cobra Commander only.
Zartan - eh...
Ok, he has the awesome wave 11 sculpt, but what's up with his paint scheme??? It looks weird.
I might use this guy to make a custom green skinned Zartan.
The Joe set is definitely a win win scenario.
Only Hawk seems a bit unnecessary.
The Cobra box set is worth it for the Baroness and if you like a Viper Chrome Dome. Storm Shadow needed better colors on the boots, belt & quiver. For a customized v1 Storm Shadow, these arms will make him perfect.
Cobra Commander wasn't really necessary but is accurate. Zartan needs a better paint scheme for sure, he's the only real disappointment out of these 2 sets for sure.

In addition to the changes posted, I would add that SE has a new upper and lower torso, new lower arms, and new hands.
Shipwreck is an entirely new sculpt. I just compared. I didn't see a single re-used part on him(except maybe the feet).
Storm shadow has new lower legs in addition to his new arms.

I'm actually surprised by how cool these sets are. When i heard about them before i figured they'd be straight repacks with maybe some different paint. and maybe have the fixed flint in the set.
I didn't anticipate shipwreck and lady jaye getting all new sculpts. I really like the shipwreck, i didn't think the first figure was that bad, but this ones more accurate to the original. So is lady jaye sculpt wise, but her color scheme and head arn't.
Flints awesome to finally have corrected. Snake eyes is cool as well having a new torso sculpt, that the animated version didn't have. Plus his backpack.
I know allot of people are duked out, but i actually feel we have yet to get a good duke, and had been wanting a resculpt of the v1 look with an accurate v1 toy paintjob.
The cobra sets okay, but i think the joe sets much better.
Baroness is cool, she looks nice, i know allot of people moanedabout the original figure, but it never really bothered me. Plus the original figure was really accurate to the cardart wich is always big with me. I'm not sure which one will become my default.
Storm Shadow seems to have New arms and legs. You can see the leg wrappings more accurate to the og figure and he doesn't have the sandals. I think they were going for an animated storm shadow.
Vipers cool, it fixes my biggest problem with the figure, most people will say the hands, but the goggles not being attached always bugs me cause they fall off constantly. If i hadn't already invested allot into the army builing these guys, I'd probably prefer this version, but i want to keep all my troops with a consistant look.
cobra commander meh, zartan is pretty lame.
I wish we had gotten a destro in this set i think he woulda been perfect. I want something thats accurate to the v1 toy paint scheme. The first 25th destro isn't in black he just has a dark grey suit, which alwys looked really off to me. he needed to be like the cartoon destro. If they made a chromed head, flat black, with glossy black boots, destro it woulda made the set beter.

Lady Jaye also has a modified head sculpt from the DVD pack. Check her messy bangs, they're cleaned up. The DVD one has sculpted hair strands over her eyes that extend below the main bangs-sweep.
