Wow they all look really good, with the exception of Torch, and I really like the Resolute designs.

Blowtorch = Epic Win
Trooper and Duke= Win
CC= ? I will need to see in person
Torch= Epic Fail
I wasn't going to buy any resolute, but now I must have that awesome Duke (to go with my other 30 dukes) and as many Troopers as I can get ahold of.

Blowtorch and the Resolute figures look awesome. That Duke and Cobra Trooper look especially good. I bet they'll also fit in well with the movie figures and vehicles. Of course I haven't even seen Wave 10, so it's going to be a while before I see these. Even then, if I can afford it. There's just way too much cool stuff coming out nowadays.

Seeing the Resolute figures is getting me psyched up for the short animated series. Resolute Duke is hands down the best version of Duke ever (not including Sigma), Same can be said of the Resolute CC. I like the Resolute cobra grunts but I don't have a budget to start building them--I will buy a couple. Needless to say, Resolute is not a disappointment.
Blowtorch is accurate to the original, right down to the heavily parted hair, although I would like to see him geared up--mask on, before I would say I need him. And the other two, well, not much more needs to be said beyond "pass".

Torch gets the same verdict that all the dreadnoks have, fail.

The Drednoks did not go to school....so they are bound to fail.

The COBRA Trooper looks odd to me. I guess it's because my image of the COBRA Trooper is stuck between the cartoon and comic book(not Resolute, the vintage ones). Also, he looks more like he could be used for a custom Urban Assault figure.
Duke reminds me more of his Valor vs. Venom version than the one in the "Best of DVD Battles" pack. But other than nostalgia for that version, as Duke this figure doesn't really work. He may be also be good for custom fodder only.
COBRA Commander reminds me of the Spytroops version that came with Switch Gears. But I find it odd he has kneepads on like Duke and COBRA Trooper. That's the only "flaw" I see.
Blowtorch looks great as is, and definitely matches with the original RAH version. Unfortunately the bright colors just don't do it for me and i'd rather get a custom Charbroil figure first before I even think about getting him.
If Torch had a different pair of hands, then maybe, just maybe he'll be an improvement over the original version. But as is, he's not really that much of an improvement. He's again useful as custom fodder only.
While I felt COBRA Commander was the best figure of this wave, Firefly is second best. Yes, I have a bit of a bias towards figures with blues and camouflage because they look so useful for urban assault. This figure could be used for a Shockwave custom or an Alley Viper custom, or could be the Urban Assault version of Firefly(since the TRU version was said to look too much like Shockwave).
Looks like I may get one or two of these. When are they being released again?

Well, here are my two cents on this:
Blowtorch (5 stars)- effectively perfect. Definitely getting him.
Firefly (2 stars) - the figure is OK, but since I passed on the CP one, I kinda want his gear. I might get him to repaint, I might not. Love the card art though. Will wait till I see him in person.
Torch (no stars) - the CP one was perfect. only good for MOC collectors. Pass.
Resolute Duke (1 star) - I actually prefer the 25th head sculpt, and I don't like those new arms (although the articulation is far superior). Mind you, the gear is good. Might change my mind in person, but probably pass.
Resolute CC (2 star) - Ok, but not one I'm thrilled with. More regal, but less practical. I'm glad he still has chest articulation. Might change my mind in person, but probably pass.
Resolute Cobra Trooper (4 stars) - best resolute figure of the three. I'm actually really looking forward to army-building a few of him. Looks like a heavy trooper compared to the regular 25th style ones. I like him. I'll pick up 3ish.
EDIT: I might use the trooper's vest on Firefly to make Wide Scope.
Any chance we could see loose images soon?

IMO the only must buy in this wave is Blowtorch. Firefly and Torch are 100% crap. The Resolute figures are nice (specially Duke which is hard to believe) but I'm not going to collect them.
