Wave 2 looks more promising than wave one. So far I think I'll be picking up most if not all the wave 2 figures. Probably 2 or 3 of Scarlett and Cover girl for customs.

Cover girl looks cool except for that Joe Dirt wig she's sporting...

I've been pretty down on all the movie stuff so far. Right now I think that I'll pick up Sgt. Thunderblast, Heavy Duty, Storm Shadow, Cover Girl, Trenchcoat Snake Eyes & a few Ice Vipers, but that's it. Everything else looks lame.
On the other hand, if they continued the Modern Era line this year I probably would buy all of that.

These are awesome, (ice viper is a little sketchy though) but besides that there seems to be so many unique weapons and gear that come with these nicely sculpted figures. I'm putting a lot of faith in the movie from seeing these figures.

1. SE in the trench coat. I hope they show the scene from the cartoon where he rescues Timber.
2. Baroness is growing on me.
3. Duke in the "Dusty" gear. It will make a much better figure to put the '08 Dusty head on.
4. Zartan. However, I'm wondering why his "disguise" head is just another head of himself? It's like Zartan in Zartan disguise. I wish they would have made it one head (sunlight bringing out the facial markings) and another head for his disquise.
Do not like:
Any of the cobra soldiers - "Super Horrible" (new phrase just for this movie).
Cobra Artic Soldier - I'm not sure who that is I'll assume a Snow Serpent. What a crappy outfit. He looks like his Mom dressed him extra warm to play in the snow.
Duke in the black super-suit. Looks like a TRON figure.
Cover Girl - this figure had the possibility of being the romantic love interest of all my open figures when I play "adult" scenes with them. (you know... SE pays for "attention", Flint gets a lap-dance). Unfortunately, I'll have to stick with Agent Courtney.
Scarlett (in fatigues) - She has that "just took roofies" look on her. That's about all she'll be good for. Thank goodness for the other head sculpt on the dominatrix suit.
I understand the need to go to the bulkier packaging due to the "Super Horrible" spring-loaded guns. Hasbro may be true to the movie but they're not true to the legacy of the characters. Major FAIL! (oh, and yes... I'll still buy a crap-load because I'm an addict).

I won't be buying most of these figures, but I found a good number that I like.
The Vipers and Neo Vipers look good. The masks threw me off, but the less I focused on the mouth area and looked at the mask as a whole, they looked better. Good troops. I'm not a troop builder by any means but I love it when companies make troopers, and these ones look like elite commandos; menacing and dangerous.
The Ice Viper is impressive. I had to take a 2nd look at that thing. Very cool. Don't know what that missle launcher is supposed to be(is it a sled?), but it looks far better than any of the other missle launchers on steroids. I love the sculpt on the Ice Viper, very impressed with the wrappings on the arms and everything else.
Desert Duke looks better than the reactive armor version. Good stand in for a modern day army soldier, so in my collection, he might be just that. I like how he has a lot of gear too.
Heavy Duty looks okay. I might pick that figure up.
Both Storm Shadows look good, just hoping that the skirt on the first one is soft enough to enable hip movement. It'd be a shame to have a ninja figure that can't move well.
Trenchcoat Snake Eyes looks great, I just need to find a Cobra Trooper helmet that fits, so that he can look like Snake Eyes from Transformers VS G.I. Joe Vol. 1 by Dreamwave. I LOVE that book! That WWII version of Snake Eyes is AWESOME!

I hate to say it but their are some workable figures in this bunch! Hate the Vipers, they look awful but the Joes (with the exception of Snake Eyes) All look promising. It sucks the custom fodder I've been waiting for is'nt here: Destro!

That sled deal is a ski-pedo from the Cobra Wolf vehicle....I was surprised to see it too!
