Well I'm going to be the first to poo-poo on this parade and have to say I honestly am not that impressed. :(
I think the only ones I really like and probably buy are the Viper and the Hiss driver, mainly the his driver b/c I've got 3 HISSs that need drivers.
Might be a good thing to, as my wallet needs a break anyway. Glad I spent most of the money I would have spent on these lately on my recently acquired fleet of VAMPs and older Joes.
I guess Wild Bill looks "ok" (guess I finally got to see what those CG single action army revolvers we for ), but I'd probably feel better about him if I had a chopper to stick him in.
I don't like the colors on Duke, while I do like the flag accessory and I guess the jet pack is ok too.
Spirit I never really liked anyway, I think the black suited DDP version looks much cooler.
That leaves Snake Eyes, and I am going to go ahead and say it and p*ss everyone off, I don't like him. :( Reminds me too much of all that "Ninja Force" crap they got into at the end of the original line. Maybe it's just me b/c I don't like that later stuff like that since I was with the Joes since the beginning in '82.
I LOVED the 25th v1 SE when he came out, and I think the 25th v2 is cool but would look even better in black rather dark greyish color he has, but this new one just doesn't do anything for me, sorry. :(
All in all I must say I am not as impressed with this wave as I was with some of the others. I thought Snow Job rocked when I saw all he came with and how his outfit went together. The CGs looked cool but any who has read my other post knows how I feel about the single action army revolver on them.
I just thought this line would look a lot better is all. I guess it's just my opinion in the end. I am disapointed too not to see Bludd either.
Oh well, there's always hope for the next wave.

Willd Bill - He looks good. Will probably get him.
Duke - Awful.
Snake Eyes v3 - Wow, pretty good considering, and all those cool accessories. Removeable knives on his chest?
HISS driver - Very cool-looking. Really good sculpt.
Spirit - Damn... this is one of my favourite characters... the headsculpt is all wrong (almost Conan the Cimmerian like) but the rest looks alright. The bone knife on his chest is a little too big and glaring, but it's possible that's it removeable.
Viper - Brilliant. A perfect update, but I hope he gets those black goggles.
Are these the ones with another joint at the lower torso?

Finally!! Rolled up short sleeves! (Viper)
I don't know what Hasbro was thinking by not making this mold right away. I counted about almost 20 rolled up short sleeves figs from the first 4 waves of the original ARAH line, and only 2 rolled up long sleeves. Saving money was a weak excuse!
It would be blasphemous though to break an army builder fig just to have the correct arms on some others.

I'm really impressed with this wave actually although I haven't seen Major Bludd yet. So much that I ordered an extra case and cancelled 2 extra Vipers, a Hiss Drive and a Major Bludd at BBTS. I just felt that an additional $6 for four more figure would be worth the tradeoff.
I didn't think that I would like Spirit Iron Knife and Wild Bill that much but they turned out better than I had expected. Duke and Snake Eyes were alright. I wasn't too impressed with them perhaps because I more used to their traditional outfits.

Don't worry, esg, I've got your back.
I like Wild Bill, and Spirit's OK. Duke is meh; the Cobra's a solid but not amazing.
Snake-Eyes looks more like Venom with an Uzi than anything I remember. Guess I'm too old for the original version of this mold...

Esg is on CRACK. These exceed everything released so far. I will buy as many as i can get my hands on two to three each of the joes and 10 to 20 each of the cobra's. that hiss driver may be the sweetest cobra figure in years, how they are making this sooo much better than the originals is amazing. They keep this up and i may store all my arah figures and create a whole new collection of 25th style figs. That snake eyes blows me out of the water it is so awesome
