I seem to remember when the "Hall of Heros" idea first dropped everyone was doing back flips, but like with every other move that Hasbro makes, the crying about how they still didn't get it right and why do I have to spend more money on all this repainted nonsense is incredible.
:Newsflash: You Don't!
If you don't think they got it right, spend your time, effort, and money on something else. Who Cares? Or, you could spend all this frustrated energy figuring out how to make your own custom the "right way". Great! and the bonus is my I will get to read less about how a toy didn't turn out how you envisioned it you feel your being "RAPED". You haven't been. But the statistics say that you know someone who has gone through that horrifying ordeal.
It's just plastic and I realize that means a lot to some of you, but let's try and keep a little perspective here. Cool? cool.

Would have been nice if all the Hall of Heroes figures were different.
As it stands, basically I'll only be getting Flint (for display) and Firefly (cause that one just looks bad-ass).

Viper hands? Duke arms? wrong weapons? CC with chrome face? Yeah, they went and corrected them. They hear us. Sometimes it takes awhile for them to fix it, but they seem to try.
So complaining about it DOES work and DOES have a place here on a GI JOE fan site. We are collectors of the line, we see something that is not working right, we complain. Hey, free test market for them.
If you don't like reading people's complaints, don't read the threads regarding a complaint, or at least don't respond to a complaint with yet another complaint.

Why The F@#k are you people so mad???? If you don't like these then don't buy them!!! They are for MOC collectors and will NOT be clogging store pegs and stoping new figures from being out. If you don't like these you won't ever have to see them again!

i see that i am a bit late in on the party of chiming in... but i must say that the CG is extremely disappointing. i was holding off building an army in the hopes that these would be the ones to get, but i see i was wrong. why would they make the backpack and helmet a different shade of red than the figure? and other than the BAT and Firefly (sort of), it looks the rest are just re-releases of figures that came out in comic packs (Beachhead), previous waves (Zartan) or 5-packs (Snake Eyes, Flint, Viper, Storm Shadow). seeing as i am not a packaging collector - which is the only reason i can see getting most of these at $10-13 a pop - i will be steering clear.

Man I'm really bummed they didn't have duke in this set, he would have been perfect. An accurate v1 paint scheme, on the fixed duke body is something i really want.
Destro woulda been a good choice as well, i want a repaint based on the v1 look thats actually wearing black and not dark grey.
Overall I'm kinda meh on these they could have had potential.
The firefly's came close, i like that they are using a new body instead of beachhead to more accuratly portray the v1 look, but they missed with the camo pattern. I wish they'd give him acurate thighs with his detonaters on them.
I like the bat and Viper, but the higher pricepoint on them makes it hurt for army building.
I like the vipers better, but i want all my vipers to match. I don't want like half chrome faced ones and half old ones. and i have allot of old ones.
I like the new stormshadow I'll probably get it and swap out the strap and backpack with the old one. While i like the new arms, for my "perfect" ss he'd have to have the sleeves.
One of the things that would have totally made me buy all of these was if they had Accurate reproductions of the original cardart. from the pictures you can tell theres a card inside the box that says hall of heroes, and i'm curious what the logo looks like inside.
I may pick up a few of these to have carded.
Everything else is kinda meh to me, and not very interesting. I don't like the dirty boots. I don't understand why they keep forgetting to paint zartans belt.
