Belated response on what was shown... some great stuff in here. I figured it was in production, so I'm really happy to see all the new resolute figures.
first the resolute stuff...
Roadblock looks amazing just spot on, the green may need to go down a spot and he needs knee pads. I really love the head sculpt, i have always absolutly hated the original roadblock headsculpt. I've always felt it [and gung ho] needed resculpts very badly. So i freaking love that head. I actually currently have a mace windu head on my roadblock.... but anyway I'd love to see that repainted as classic roadblock.
Wild Bill i really love the way wild bill looks in resolute and want a figure he's one of my favorites in the show. I hope this figure is still early on the colrs because they are way off base from the cartoon. His vest needs to be brown and the greens the wrong color. I also don't mind re-using parts but i think they could have used something more accurate than the og wild bill figure. I think the dusty body would work better.
Resolute Destro looks pretty great I guess design wise he fits in with baroness and cobra commander with the skirts.
Resolute Gung-ho sweet, I'm really surprised how spot on that came out when comparng him to stills even the watch is accurate. My only gripe is the grey vest needs a pinch of blue like in the show, that was sort based on his og color scheme. Plus i hate the 2th gung ho headsculpt i wish they gave him a new one.
now to classic stuff... Monkey wrench, i hate the gung ho body, i wish they's use the quick kick body for shirtless people. Why have they not been re-using that. The grenade belt is pretty lame, it was poorly done back in the old vvv days and its lamer now. they shoulda used snake eyes grenade belt. The head is a dissapointment as well, he needs his glasses. But I'll still totally pick up the figure.
The new night creeper looks really nice, i wish they used those arms on the other one kinda. I love the recondo figure, he came out really nice as well. But i'm curious what was going on with the recondo test shot we saw that was shortsleeved?
I'm so happy they fixed chuckles, and we now have a blue hawaian shirt version. He looks so much better. I think i was right when we first saw pics of him with the grey shirt i thought he looked like a night force version of chuckles i think thats what they were going for to go with the other night force figures,
It's nice to finally see the range viper with gear on. I wish he came with the vintage backpack i know they still have it.
Night force tunnel rat, looks pretty nice. just like the original.
Man Zap looks so awesome. The irony that they finally make a really awesome original 13 body sculpt they could re-use and he's the last og13 member to be made. Man i wish they had that body type earlier.
Night force beachead is pretty cool, i guess they got it mixed up in the wal-mart computer proably. I still wouldn't mind seeing night force shockwave still tho'.
Indifferent on copperhead not sure what i'd do with that one.
I guess maybe with that snake eyes there trying to make one similar to the movie version maybe...?
but al in all some great stuff in here so much joe-y-ness going on this week.

I'm just glad we've got another female figure. This has always been a very weak point for Hasbro with the G.I.Joe line.
There's plenty of great female characters in the comics and cartoons that get overlooked for another "(insert random function) Viper" that nobody recognizes or cares about.
Some people may be upset about Dialtone (if that's the new female) being a woman, and I understand that - I'm a big Snake Eyes fan, and would probably not be very happy if Hasbro pulled the gender switch with him, just to "mix it up."
Again, just saying that for those of us who are wanting more female figures, this is another (small) step in the right direction.

Just a suggestion. But next time new images or even old ones are posted, can someone please title each image so we know who we're looking at? Some of these figures are new to me, and I don't know who they are supposed to be.
If Hisstank has identified each of those figures, can a moderator please update the news article so that each image has a title of the figure. Or, at the least could you at least place the name of the image on the image filename itself. That way when we scroll over the image, we can see the name of the figure.
I'm the best there is at what I do, ha ha! But, what I do isn't very nice, ha ha!

I think the devs made a mistake. That first figure that we see isn;t Monkeywrench. Apparently, an image from Hasbro's new line of Chuck Norris figures got mixed in by accident.
