Ah, I'll get a few...for the Bats I don't mind it so much. Hey that Duke might make a cool Barrel Roll custom! If there was any pack that's going to suffer from repacks and theft it's going to be this one...Bats missing left and right.

evolving is one thing...blatant bastardizations and lazy ass repaints are another. sure EVENTUALLY they will run out of characters in the classic , slightly updated, style to do but lets wait UNTIL then to start making shitty stuff. theres still hundreds of hundreds of characters and vehicles to do. I mean we still have greats like the rest of the knocks, more iron greandiers, hit n run, crazy legs, dial tone (the real one not the stupid chick one from the new comics) so many more. Before they start making repaints of a new line which is onyl 3 figs deep lets get more of the classic stuff out huh?!!!

Remember that bit in Spaceballs about "Instant Cassettes"? The movie is released before it's even finished! This should be called "Instant Repaints"! They are repainted before you've even found the originals!
(When do we get to now-now?)

I usually like everything Hasbro has done in the past year except for the movie figs. I don't think these are that bad.

I'm sure I'll buy it but I'm not in love with it. How about a resolute greenshirt?

As for the Transformers, I couldn't care less because I do not buy any of the new bastardized toys for myself or any of the kids in my family. I'll buy any classics they put out that actually resemble the classics but this new stuff can sit and rot on the shelves for all I care.
Oh and the success of the original RAH line came about because of the cartoons and comics. It's pointless to argue that point because just about every successful toyline in the 80's had its own cartoon show to promote it. Oddly enough, Hasbro could not reproduce that 1980's success when it introduced the Spytroops, VvV or Sigma 6 cartoons/episodes/whatever. Whether you admit it or not, it actually took Hasbro marketing the modern era 25th anniversary toys to us 30-somethings for the line to finally take off, again. Now that we've breathed life back into the line, Hasbro is free to take it in whatever shi**y direction they want. I won't buy it but then I don't blindly support the GI Joe brand to begin with so that's no surprise.

Once again, Hasbro can't stick to one uniform color for the Troops and Officers. Geez....don't release a blue one, then red ones in a 5-pack. It doesn't make sense.
Other than that, it looks like a great pack.
