If you're not happy about these then you have to admit that YOU are the problem, not Hasbro. If you can't, then you need to get therapy until you can.
This is them saying "Hey 25th collectors, we're doing these just for YOU to say thanks and to let you know we're not forgetting about you while we have to (and they do HAVE TO) focus on the movie toys."
Personally I'm most stoked for Hit & Run!!!!!!! At first I thought his webgear looked a little clunky, but then I looked at some pics of the original figure and realized it's actually completely accurate.

alley viper is missing his helmet, and range vipers face is uhh... like a normal face.. it's supposed to be like a skull mask.. and didn't the strat viper come with the night raven b4? Anyways i hope this picture is excluding some of the helmets, or these are gonna suck...

I am definitely blown away by how cool these figures look! Definitely looks like one of the best multi-packs to get and here's what I think about each of them:
Outback: I'm not sure why he would have needed a vest unless he was in urban assault, but other than that he looks perfect. 9.8/10
Recondo: The slightly sleeved arms don't look like right to me. I think if he used the "Shipwreck" arms with "Gung-Ho" hands he'd have looked better. Also his head looks more like it could be used for an Ambush custom. 8/10
Zap: Wondering what is with his hand but I assume it's probably ok. I think if he had the mustache he'd look like Zap for sure. 8/10
Chuckles: Looks great without the bright shirt but the weird "Dataframe" hands do kind of confuse me. 9/10
Hit and Run: Also looks dead on like the original version, and now i'm torn as to whether I should get Outback or this guy. He looks perfect. 10/10
Wet-Suit: This figure also looks great, but the lower legs don't look right to me. 9/10
SPC Altitude: I thought this guy was Ripcord. Looks great except for the lower legs as well. 9/10
Dr. Mindbender: Another figure that truly looks perfect as is and is a beautiful homage to the original version. 10/10
Range-Viper: I would have to get him a 9 out of 10 before seeing what accessories he comes with. If he doesn't have those bullets around his chest as a removable attachment, then he'll get an 8 out of 10 from me.
Alley Viper: He almost looks perfect except the extra paint apps on the boots weren't necessary. 9.5/10
Lampreys: I think he should have been given the comic pack Ace vest because the vest makes him looks like he's a doctor trying to listen to your heartbeat. 9/10
Battle Damage B.A.T.: Well he looks good but we already have too many versions of this army builder and I think he could use a few more bullet holes on his arms and legs. 8.5/10
Night Creeper: Wow Hasbro has done two "perfect" GIJOEs and now two "perfect" COBRAs. This is again as dead-on to the original as Hasbro can get. 10/10
Strato-Viper: I take it back...it looks like it's three perfect COBRAs...wow! 10/10
Even without the accessories most of these figures look super as-is. Looks like i'll have to sell off more of my vintage figures to get some of these...

I'm really hoping that the Range Viper somehow ends up with the skull mask. That's my only gripe with the "Defense" set...

Hasbro has done these sets for us and I must say that I am completely impressed with them.
They obvisously at this point dont have there weapons, helmets and other accessories but Hasbro wouldnt shaft us with half complete figs.. so not to worry!
I cant really choose what fig. I am more stoked for.. Wetsuit has been a long time coming.. Alley Viper.. Lamrpey, Mindbender, Outback, Range-Viper, Hit N Run! I mean figure overload here!
I am eagerly anticipating the release of these!
In the end, you'll see my name carved in stone...
