How is it possible that these are released months before the public. does someone have an insider in China? the guns on the vipers do not match

I've been collecting everything so far, but I don't know - first that crappy greatest battles, and now this? There is nothing new here. Mercer has a Hawk head, and nothing is more infuriating than reusing an existing figure's head and naming it something else. It would totally be worth it if the pack had fixed hands, or even the Viper helmet was hollowed out to fit over the one presumed Mercer head. But it looks as if it's just one you swap out with the helmeted head. So the only thing new here is the gold face shield, maybe a different stand labeled Viper Officer and a new package. Lame. And very disappointing.
I've been supportive of Hasbro with this line and kept my criticisms to a minimum (they are toys after all), but the direction things are going are really bringing me down. And the few pictures we've seen of what's coming out with the movie were pretty awful as well. The resolute figures got my hopes up, but I dunno where to go with this... I guess I'll be saving money, anyway. In 3-5 years, these will be dirt cheap on eBay.

This looks pretty cool, the viper is one of my favorite troop builders. I wonder what other packs are coming out with this one. Hopefully, the one filled with BATs.

I'm sure we'll see what we want in increments. a five pack of vipers with fixed hands, then a five pack with unfixed hands and a new mercer headsculpt, then one with one chrome and four regulars, then two chrome and three regulars and so on and so on.

Definitely not worth keeping in the box...

Still a nifty cool set that I will probably pick up.

Hmm, a repainted Duke head does not make a Mercer, unofficial or otherwise. But that's alright, I'll be buying a few of these to further fill out my viper ranks. I'm glad they kept the wrists.
Too bad they didn't slip a Python Patrol Viper in there, though.
