I will probably use the unmasked head on the Hall of Heroes SS aswell.
Like others have pointed out-Im impressed Hasbro did different molds for the black armoured Joes...they couldve quite easily have just done different heads!
PM me about Custom Commissions

Well I'll be getting CoverGirl at least.

The more I see Baroness, the more I want her. Also dig Shipwreck, though not much of a fan. Stormshadow looks good, Snake Eyes not so much. I just don't like the head sculpt.
A little off topic, but why so much hate over spring-loaded guns? By the looks of it, they do come with other weapons as well.

I'm going to get a few of those Deep Six figs. One to repaint into a toon accurate Torpedo. One to repaint as Fumbles/Trouser Snake. And maybe a couple to be generic divers. Wave 2 Scarlet looks great I'll have to pick that one up. Covergirl looks like a good fig too.
I'm on the fence bout the artic Viper. Its pants just look weird. I may get it and swap the legs out.
A lot of these will be worth getting on sale just for the custom fodder and weapons. I'm really glad to find out I won't have to buy the repaint 5 packs to get the new Polly and Timber molds.

That Ice-Viper is going to be a nice base for a custom Kwinn.

I thought i would only get two or three, and for customs...but so far, i like them as figures as well.
i don't like the cobras though. Not that they're crap but...dunno, still not convinced. Except for the polts. They all look awesome.
I like the idea of my "normal" Joes having characteristic features.
Unmasked Storm Shadow is going to be a hit. Same for the SE with longcoat. We'll get a hard time to get those, but the good thing is that kids usually don't buy female charcters, aso these girls will be available. That Cover girl is great.
And the good thing is that these figure have a..."middle point" of design. They're not completely fantastic like old Joes, but they're neither super realistic. So, with a few modifications, you can go one or the other point.
And yeah, if the figures came without the spring loaded launcher weapons, none would complaint...but oh no, they're there! the line sucks!
Please. Just toss them aside. And some of them are normal weapons, for example Duke's rocket launcher.

Is that Ice Viper going snowboarding or to a rave? Dig those wide leg camo pants! Scarlett doesn't look too bad, could probably make a couple of decent customs out of her.
What I find amusing about this whole line is everybody is armed to the TEETH! how do they lug around these portable nukes?

Contrary to what many have posted, these figures do not suck and are not crap. Very nice sculpts on most of them.
They aren't the characters I know, and because of that I won't be buying... but I wouldn't begrudge Hasbro from trying out some things differently to see if they strike a chord.
But GEEEEEEZ... would it kill them to add a bit of COLOR??? I think one of the reasons so many think these are lackluster is that every stinkin' figure is black, white or gray. I think the only colored item I have seen in the entire line is Scarlett's hair. I can't believe that these will be successful because they are not going to stand out on the shelves. Kids don't care if it's realistic... they want what we wanted when we were kids... colorful characters who are easily identified and have distinct personalities and traits. Not 20 Joes that are wearing one of three uniforms, all of which look they have been drained of any and all pigment. That's why GI Joe was so popular... because they were no longer generic army figures. They were fully fleshed out characters (thank you Larry Hama). I think this is the major miscalculation of this entire project... the costumes. We have now come full circle, and they are now just a bunch of generic army soldiers again. Yuck.
BTW, I think both Storm Shadows are downright awesome, and the two Snake Eyes are fairly good (but not as good as some we've seen in the 25th line). I also like the second Scarlett. I think I will have to purchase all of those... but that's about it. Heavy Duty looked better to me in the low res pictures.
