i like it, i don't mind the red. i don't like the fact i am getting another cc and duke, but at least i don't have to look at duke's face on this one. the box is awesome too.
i don't mind the repaints so much, i mean, we have got a ton of stuff since this line began. you have to take the good with the "bad". remember night force, sears sms and dreadnok vechs, sky-force, all repaints and all will cost you a limb or your left nut to purchase now. i find it ironic. i'm sure some of you might find that uncomparable due to rarity, but the fact is they are repaints as well.
a company in a crappy economy cannot constantly pump out new figures every month. hundreds of factories in china are closing every day! it's just not going to happen and it didn't necessarily happen in the eighties either.

It is a bit crazy that there will be repaints for Resolute so soon, but hey who couldn't use another Duke or CC? Those guys are pretty hard to find!
I do like the batt and the rest are alright/not bad but I'll stick with the blue versions of CC and the gang, thanks. It would be nice if the batt was sold as a single card as well though.
I still think the resolute line is poised to out sell the movie line if they share the shelves.

NO WAY that Resolute outsells the Movie. They are gonna flood the aisle with movie stuff and kids are gonna go nuts.

Whoa..so long as Duke's helmet is removable I won't need to pick up the wave 13 version. I am buying this set! I can't even find the Resolute and Blowtorch figures from wave 13 anyways, so I'll be waiting for this. The only Resolute figure I want to buy from that wave now is the Trooper, unless Duke's helmet in this set is unremovable. That Cobra Commander looks great in black w/red trim! Reminds me a lot of the VVV version.

The only good thing in this is the Black BAT. Pass for me, but good if you pass on wave 13.

Well they certainly didn't wait long reaching for the repaints...

interesting, half the people like it and half don't. Well I guess hasbro has a market for these.
Also, interesting that they would go the repaint before more new resolute figures. Maybe they wanted a quick set that you could buy for kids to get them into resolute faster. If they buy 5 figures they might be more committed to the series.
It actually looks good, I think people are more dissapointed that hasbro didn't wait a few more waves of original resolute to release this set.
I will pass because I don't want to collect resolute, but I think Hasbro could be on the right track with Resolute and the cartoon....

Horrible. These will be less popular than the Legions set, methinks.
Back off man, I'm a scientist.
