As others, I hope these are just proto's and not the real deal. If they are real, I'm disappointed.

I can live with Major Bludd being a FrankenJoe. I like v2 Roadblock. Most disapointed with the rest. ANOTHER CC? The Baroness articulation is going to suck like the current one (since it's just a repaint)...
As fond as I am to see the Python Patrol, I'd like to see some troop builders/variants of standard scheme troopers for Army building purposes. It'd be nice if there could 2 or 3 different head sculpts, too. I'm starting to think the Cobra legions are clones of skinheads or something.

I am starting to lean to the maybe they are legit category with the pegs pointed out.
I am sure Bludd is getting changed some but if they used Zartan's leg why would they leave out the awesome boot knife!
I think the Bludd would look good like that but swap the chain bracelet hand, then use a Cobra Trooper lower torso and thighs.

No. Find your own. :P
And it isnt that hard to know someone. People make friends all the time especially at conventions. Besides, take into account all the people it takes to make these toys. The historian (he keeps the stories and such straight) Concept artists, sculptors, team leads, painters, prototypists, the articulation team, Marketing, and many more. And then take into account that all these people have friends who they talk to.

I'm not sure that "my insider" would be too happy with me sharing them.
Then again, I don't know anyone....

Thorny: Yeah, his shenanigans are cruel and tragic.
Foster: Which wouldn't make them shenanigans, at all, really.
Mac: (Irish voice) Evil shenanigans!
O'Hagen: I swear to God, I'll pistol whip the next guy that says 'shenanigans!'
Mac: Hey Farva, what's the name of that restaurant you like with all the goofy shit on the walls and the mozzarella sticks?
Farva: You mean Shenanigans?
Mac, Foster and Thorny: Oh, no! (Laughing) (Mac hands O'Hagen his gun.)
Farva: You're talking about Shenanigans, right?
Can we all just get along now? Please

I have to honestly say that I've seen one of the figures before (Cobra Commander).
The rest are "new" to me. I really hope this wave isn't "for real", because if it is...my completist days have ended.

Love the CC. They FINALLY put that stripe in his head. And some red crystals...
Baroness... really needs a new body. She's a mess. Maybe the ACTUAL comic body?
Python Patrol Officer- I see that some filecards REMAIN swapped.
Roadblock has potential. He's a pinhead though, like the first one. Needs a better headsculpt. Looks like Charlie Brown.
Major Bludd has a REALLY nice headsculpt and right arm. the Zartan has to go. It's cool and all, but it's WAY too soon for Frankenjoes. Not THAT kind of a leap. Not in the 25th line.

These look like comic pack figures (and early prototypes at that) and not the final versions for a Wave 8 set. After all, again, we were told by Hasbro in a recent Q&A that we wouldn't be seeing Python Patrol or Tiger Force repaints for quite awhile.
Regardless, I've saved all of these images, as I'm concerned they'll be forcibly removed at some point in the near future. :-) Thanks for posting them!
