Meh. All the sculpts have been released, or are comming in the upcomming 5-packs or wave 14 BD BAT. THe only new thing is the correct pack for Flint.
Sorry, cool for MOC, but not for me.

I understand that collectors feel duped, that this isn't what they voted for. But I think what they've given us is better. I remember thinking "why are we voting for wave 3 Zartan when we know a better (w11) one is on the way?
I think we're getting some good stuff:
Fixed hand, chrome Viper
Fixed arm, not TF, Flint
Firefly w. correct BDU (I'm confident the camo will be more evident in person)
Beachhead w/ all his accessories
Classic Zartan, w/ detailed paint and w/o the skier that no one but me seemed to like
Snake-eyes w/ Timber - correct DVD pack body w/ superior wave 1 headsculpt
...and a few others.
I'll buy probably half of these. Personally I am most stoked about the FF. But that's me. I've been pissed about this line in the past, but I have no real problem with these.

Hasbro is Bitch Mother who tells you every day she hates you but asks you to give her your paycheck so she can go out drinking and getting laid. F-Hasbro!
Hey, I say look at the Star Wars line for inspiration. They'll charge us out the ass for these bitches (which none of us are truely happy with anyway) then you know exactly what they'll do? They'll put these figures on a new card when they need cheap figure molds to fill pegs after the movie hype.
Look at VOTC figues. They came out with that super-articulated Boba Fett and everyone went psycho for it. Then that mold was re-used for a shit load of Boba Fetts after that. Everyone needs to just buy what makes you happy because if you skip on it now it will be back around.

$12 Bucks is a bit steep for the figs.
They do come with a ton of accessories, but I can see why people will opt for the 5 pack or comic pack versions.
I can only see myself getting Firefly and BAT and maybe Flint.

All of the preorders (cases and individual figures) are completely sold out at BBTS. These might be the hottest selling figures in the entire 25th anniversary line.

So I'm getting the troops and Flint... I had FF preordered as well but meh. I don't need another SE, SSv1 is good enough for me, Zartan looks great but I can drybrush on my own for much less.
On a side note, am I the only one that hates the v1 Flint head? I always thought it looked way too big. I like the TF one much better. Of course just about anything beats the 5-pack oddity, lol.

That's sick. All sold out already? Yikes. I'm feeling better about skipping this wave. What's more is the "not available at retail" option means I can actually keep that little promise to myself and not ever think of hunting them down.
