Thanks for nothing Hasbro. Another set of vehicles I couldn't get because we don't have any Targets here. First it was the A.W.E. Striker with the blue HISS tank & black repainted SHARC, next the Rattler & regular Conquest planes & now the TF & PP planes. I hope they don't make must get vehicles like the A.W.E. Striker, Rattler & Conquest as store exclusive products in the future. At least my comfort is that the TF & PP planes are just mere repaints of earlier released vehicles so they aren't obligatory to purchase.

Not sure how excited i'm about these...really only interested in the PP Viper, which they'll probably release on a single card a couple of months after these are released.

Usually I'm pretty positive with the Joe stuff. But these two planes look hideous to me. The colors are so offensively garish I can barely stand looking at them. The figures pretty much suck too because they are repaints we have seen a million times already. These might be the first things I actually pass on.

My son came to the site and found these pictures. I was sitting in the living room and he yelled for me, as he usually does when he finds something of interest. I walk in and he says:
"They repainted the same thing to take our money. That sucks, i want new stuff."
My son is six years old mind you.
Does anyone get the feeling these will be purchased and the viper will be repacked and the vehicle promptly returned with an older viper? The same will happen with the new cobra 5 packs. Bastards.

i'm looking forward to the tiger rat with enthusiasim but not the pilot. i REALLY don't like the python patrol conquest but do like the pilot. i'll end up with atleast 3 of each i'm sure.
box art looks NICE but it's going to be the worst thing possible to use buying them. i'm with the many others, i'm sure you will see LOTS of repacking with these boxes due to the fact that you can't see whats in them. HORRIBLE choice in my opinion. they really should have made it a book style box so you could still look into the box. NOT happy with the boxes and the resulting consumer fraud that will run rampant.

but the jets look great, and i always thought Python Viper was the best of the PP paint schemes, and he looks good here!
i've always dreamed of a Tiger Rat (never had it) so overall i'm pretty stoked, except for that damn Wild Bill. Seriously, you couldn't cobble together Skystriker from existing parts like they're doing with Thunder??? Or given us a prepaint of TF Recondo? or TF Tripwire? or Dusty or Bazooka? siiiiigghhhh.
My 25th Most Wanted List:
1. Tunnel Rat <-CHECK! 2. General Hawk (v2)<-CHECK! 3. Leatherneck <-CHECK(kinda...)
4. Jinx 5. Dusty <-CHECK! 6. Snow Serpent <-CHECK! 7. Tele-Viper <-CHECK(kinda...)
8. Falcon<-CHECK (kinda...) 9. Footloose <-CHECK! 10. Recondo <-CHECK!
9 down, 1 to go ~ but i really want a new Leatherneck and Falcon

Box art = WIN!
Vehicles= BIG PASS!
I'll finally save some cash. I didn't like TF & PP in the 80's and they still look like crap to me now.
