I agree with the idea that the Jan. 24th, 2008 date is a date representing more in-store presence of the 25th Joes in general, rather than an official Wave release date.
Also, I tend to believe the assortment, with that TF Flint being the only hold out that rubs me the wrong way. It directly contradicts the recent Hasbro Q/A, therefore, it makes me wonder as to the validity of the rest of the options.
We should get confirmation of some sort from Hasbro soon, so I suppose we just need to be patient and wait for the official word.

Walmart doesn't have release dates on items and change outs. They do everything in weeks. For example: Like there is a new toy mod during week 50. The release date thing doesn't feel right with me. I'm calling BS.

All i have to say is san diego comic con cards answer all my questions. There is a tiger force flint in the set. I believe the assortment the guy is giving is correct, as for the release date thats always debatable

There's even a white shirt Shipwreck and a yellow Stalker among the cards:
While the Shipwreck didn't get relased, we did see a sample of it. BTW, if I had to choose, I'd pick the white Shipwreck variant over the yellow Stalker ANYDAY.
Anyways, let's keep looking:
See... they used their "Cobra Viper" version of the art, when they could have used the classic Cobra Trooper image. I don't think we knew about Hasbro releasing the Cobra Viper with the variant "wood" rifle before getting this set of cards. Or maybe it happened at the same time. Either way, Hasbro used the image for a toy they were actually making.
Something similar here:
As for the upcoming figs:

I don't remember ever seeing this Wild Bill art. If so, then I doubt Hasbro would have it done just for this set of cards.
Same with the Hiss Driver / Rip it:
And wasn't Roadblock V.2 rumored?
And for those who are getting worried about this... worry no more!:
And then, some repaint/kitbash business:

(classic Zartan, coming with a different chest piece and arms)
http://www.yojoe.com/archive/games/s.../images/s2.jpg (Night Force Spirit?)
http://www.yojoe.com/archive/games/s.../images/s6.jpg (dunno... but it looks kickass)
http://www.yojoe.com/archive/games/s.../images/s9.jpg (same here)
http://www.yojoe.com/archive/games/s.../images/dq.jpg (Maybe this is next year's Baroness? The art is actually NOT the one we grew up with: http://www.yojoe.com/archive/games/s.../images/hq.jpg)
http://www.yojoe.com/archive/games/s...images/d10.jpg (Classic Serpentor)
(no clue... but that's definitely new art!)
http://www.yojoe.com/archive/games/s.../images/d2.jpg (Phyton Cobra Trooper)
Finally, stuff I don't see happening:
Sure... some stuff is missing, like IG Destro or the upcoming Armor CC... but ain't it interesting nevertheless!

I will say I think a red colored Torpedo with a Cobra symbol would be a perfect idea for a repaint!
They're in the toon:
Here's the Baroness in the same wetsuit:

I'm nervous from the pic that Hasbro will cheap-out and just paint black sleeves on bare arms. That would be just like Hasbro to make an almost perfect figure.
