i like them all. Duke is a little boring, but the accesories are nice. Wild Bill looks awesome. I like Spirit as well. He looks kind of angry. I always pictured him bipolar.

this is two waves in a row now hasbro has concinved me i need everyone in it.
EVERYONE!!!! [/Gary Oldman in Leon: The Professional]
admittedly, the only thing that sold me on duke is the silver JUMP pack. Old Glory is a bonus too.
snake eyes is SWEET!!!!
i wasnt able to get a v2 as a kid, so v3 was my first SE.
removable chest blades! yes!!!!! they really knocked it out of the park on this one.
viper is rad too.
wild bill is rootin' tootin', and waiting for a vehicle!
(blackhawk? little bird? apache? cobra?)

My two cents:
Wild Bill looks perfect aside from those ginormous holsters. When I was a kid I always got vehicles, hardly ever single figures, so getting WB, Ace, and Wild Weasel soon is gonna be a real treat for me. (Can you tell I liked aircraft as a boy? lol) Duke is blah. Spirit looks off somehow. SE looks like a great update but I really don't want another one. The Cobras look fine. I hope the fill-in for Bludd is a trooper of some sort.
...when do we get these again?

About Major Bludd, I'm very pleased they're pushing him back to wave 8. It's much like when video games get delayed, people are pissed because they want it now. On the other hand I work hard for my money and don't like wasting it on inferior product, I'll happily wait every time.
Duke: lets face it he sucks, until they resculp his head he's always going to suck.
HISS Driver: Amazing, he looks incredible. Always one of my favorites.
Viper: Awesome, Very happy they didn't try to cheap out and use CC head.
Spirit: Looks good, first thing I thought was that he actually looks like an American Indian, nice.
Wild Bill: Very Cool, that mustache really makes look umm from the south?
Snake Eyes: Looks great, well done. This was the last version of SE that I had as a kid. He came out around the time I was packing up my Joes for good, well not for good good, thay came back out about a year ago.
Of course I'm buying them all. Hasbro could slap a 25th label on a turd and I'd buy it.

Man does spirit look weird or what?? It almost reminds me of those weird smooshed versions of star wars figures or something along those lines, and Wild Bill looks like a sherrif out of some old western..........I'll still buy them ofcourse, but not without cringing.

Cowboys & Indians!?! O.k. I'm buying.
I'm glad they made SEv3 for the youngsters (27 and under).
I would love them to fill the Major's gap with Flash. This is the only set I'm buying, and Flash is so iconic, I'd love to have him.

OMG, I love every single one of these. The Viper is definitely #1 on my list, but that Wild Bill is just awesome.

But you can't deny that it is not perfectly executed as an action figure.
You may not like the ninja aspect (and I really don't think it is too "present" anyways), but you've gotta admit that's one commanding action figure.
As far as realism goes, I don't think he is "below" Wild Bill or Spirit, really.
I respect your preference though.
