The vehicles are awesome, looking forward to them.
The pilots, though, are complete fail.
Strictly speaking, for old Python Patrol all they had left was the Trooper, Tele-Viper, or the regular Viper. The Viper is a good army-builder though and I'm not buyin' a bunch of planes for it. I'd have rather seen someone new in Python Deco - even Wild Weasel.
I'm more annoyed by Wild Bill though. There's three of 'em already! I'd have been happier with Skystriker (WW body with somebody's head) than yet another Wild Bill. I've already got 2 in a custom drawer...
EDIT: I might be happier with the Wild Bill if he looked like he'd fit in with Duke and Flint!

I may very well pass on the Python Conquest, but I will definitely be buying the Tiger Rat.
I DO wish it came with anyone other than Wild Bill. Would it be SO hard to make a Skystriker (the character, not the jet...we know the jet ain't happening unless they make a new mold). They've used the Snow Job body on everybody else.

sweet god almighty, who the hell is wild bill sleeping with to get so many figures? not only will this be a fourth, putting him on par with snake eyes or duke, but it's the fourth in a single year!
where's the logic...?
these will be easy to pass on (i've passed on all the tiger force repaints so far, and gotten the python patrol guys only because they are army builders). i'm hoping the viper will be re-released on a card or in a set soon. i have an elite trooper and an officer in the python patrol with no "grunts" to command.
THIS I COMMAND!!

FUKK! Well, I would pass on these if I were tight for money, but like all other Joe stuff...I will get two of each. Who didnt see these coming? WB for the Rat pilot is a P-O-O-R chioce HASBLOW! Way to screw tha' pooch...again.
I am stoked to see a PP Viper...but he looks pretty shitty. Glad I was working on a custom one of these.

REAL BOXES!!! Hopefully that means assembly and a full sticker sheet!!!
The figures are the only downside I see. Another Wild Bill, and for those that want to army build the PP Viper are hating this.
I did call these repaints as soon as the original planes were announced.

Awesome! I'm happy with all of this except the Wild Bill. Would have rather had Skystriker and it's not like he would have been hard to make. Kinda hoping his absence means they have other plans for the name "Skystriker" in the near future. It's a stretch, but still hopeful. And even if that is the case they have the molds for Bazooka, Dusty , Roadblock, and Tripwire. Why not use one of them?
Ah well. Can't wait till Feb to add these to the collection and hope this is a sign that the first ones did well.

I think they look great but I think I'll pass. Never been enough of a fan of PP or TF to buy any of the figures, let alone a vehicle.
On a side note, doesn't this viper look as ridiculous as the one in the Fang/Claw set? Can you guys tell me with a straight face that this one looks good JUST because it's one of the much-loved Python Patrol?
These viper colors are just as bad if not WORSE than the Fang/Claw Crayola Viper.

Ok anyone think that the fact you now can't see the vehicle that someone is going to have a surprise when they get it home to find something other than the Tiger Rat or Python Conquest?
I hope Target looks really close at returns on these. It would piss me off beyond belief to buy one and open it to find a returned regular rattler in there.
