I'm glad to get more figures, but a lot of the fun for me is having them on the individual cards. If they're done for... there goes a lot of the excitement.
Or, I worry I'll buy the 7-pack and THEN they'll release them individually carded, which would also suck.
Whoever suggested doing them DTC has the right idea.
Part of me hopes the movie stuff bombs so they can keep making good toys for us.

Man, the "lock and load" feature of the Night Raven is... well... kinda nerdy.
Check out photos of my collection (G.I. Joe, Simpsons, G Gundam, Transformers, Star Wars and MUSCLE Things):

I'll toss my hat in with the ZOMG 7-PACK crowd. All I have to say is BE CAREFUL what you say about what you'd pay... BBTS et al reads this stuff you know. *ahem* I'm not paying more than $30 for the new 7-packs. The movie stuff is hit or miss... the only thing I'm definitely getting thus far is the Armadillo (for Thunder). Hopefully today will bring good news for classic/Resolute stuff.

I've seen the pictures on cooltoyreview.com
I personally don't care much about the movie merchendise but it looks kinda cool! Maybe I'll pick up one or two...
I am more interested in a seven pack titled "Defense of Cobra Island" which includes Night Creeper, Strato-Viper, Range Viper and Alley Viper! I Cannot w8to have that one!!

Of the stuff I've seen today I'll be getting:
Hawk (gonna turn that one into Ghost Rider the Phantom pilot with a head swap),
Molepod (to turn into a cartoon version)
Cobra Island 7 packs
I might get the following if there is a sale or if I like them when I see em:
Duke (I'll use him as a generic soldier)
Night Raven (if it hits 29 bucks on sale I'll get it.)
Ferret (if its on sale just to customize for the Twins.)
and maybe the Cobra Gunship, I'll have to see reviews on it first.
Won't be getting unless its on clearance:
The Pit - Wasn't impressed with it. It looked really bland. Also a lot of its accessories appear to be cardboard cutouts. If I'm going to pay 100 dollars for something it better should have all plastic pieces. I can print most of those accessories for free from various websites. This is a good thing though as this will save me 100 bucks.

The movie figures aren't listed as coming out until July. So they're a long way away. Certainly there will be more new, modern stuff coming out before that other than two 7-packs.
I highly doubt there won't be any single-pack Joes for the next 4-5 months.
Not impressed too much with the movie vehicles. Hopefully, we'll get some interesting Joe vehicles other than snow stuff. The Humvee is okay as is the gunship. I like the Night Raven. I just can't get interested in the Pit. I'd rather have a multi-level stationary playset. I still think all the movie costumes are too monotone. Black, white, and grey. Boring. They look good otherwise.

Wow, I love the Tank and all, but one bigass thread for ALL the coverage is ridiculous...
All I care to comment on is the 25th/ME stuff, which there seems to be very little of, and perhaps snippets here and there of the movie stuff...
Not trying to be a dick, but this is a mess to read through to discuss the few elements I really care about.
Thanks for the coverage though, it's just all sort of jumbled together.
Are there "commentable" smaller threads for the news posts on the homepage? Specifically the 7-packs?
The Joe one is awesome, glad to see it's all-new characters, despite some weak entries, if you ask me. I still don't know why we're missing guys like Lowlight and Footloose when we're getting some odd entries (Chuckles & H&R? "Altitude"? Ripcord is more like it...)... The Cobra set seems pretty solid, except it sucks for troop-builders who want to build a few of the Vipers in the set and not all... At least they're all pretty awesome, so getting 2 sets gives me at least 2 of each, and all I'm getting duplicates of is Mindbender (who is awesome to finally get, btw) If the price-point is decent on this set, it fairs better for those wanting ALL the figures, but I wonder why they're abandoning single-carding them...
Although I prefer this lineup over Wave 14's previously listed lineup, I just wish these guys were single-carded. Better as two 7-packs than not at all though.
Hooray for Outback, Recondo, Zap (needs his mustache though) and Wetsuit... "Altitude" has to be classic Ripcord... Glad to see him... Is that another John Wayne head though? Or a new sculpt? Looks a lot like Red Star. Although a good head sculpt and having good paint apps, as far as character choices Chuckles is meh, so is H&R. Again, at least they're all new figures.
The Cobra pack is downright solid... Can't wait to see them with all their proper gear and actual production pics... They're definitely all mockups as far as the craft is concerned... I'm sure there will be slight changes before they hit virtual shelves.
