See! I've been saying this for months! Two years ago people whined and bitched and moaned about how the Transformers movie would kill and rape and abuse all their childhood memories, and yet that gave Hasbro a marketing window to slip in tons of classic characters, designs, and vehicles into a market not just for collectors. Yeah, the movie wasn't great, but in the end everybody wins. Funny how history repeats itself.
The Rage and Snowcat are just made of win. Awesome looking vehicles.
Leatherneck still sportin' Buzzer's torso and OG Duke arms is EPIC FAIL! The colors look better, but that's just polishing a turd. Making the launcher a removable and stand-alone accessory, however, was brilliant. It gives the Joes an answer to all the Cobra launchers I got in the Resolute packs.

I was never a huge fan of the Rage but I always saw that everyone else was. I remember my cousin had the original. I always found the wheels to be strange the way they were flat and cone shaped. They kinda make sense now with the treads. I may pick up a couple of these.

FYI, the Rage orginal cone shape wheel molds went missing so "H" had to make new ones. the Rage was suppost to be in last years Joecon series(headhnters) but with the wheels being lost GJCC didn't want a repeat of the "tanks for the memories" fiasco so we just got the driver instead

I really hope that isn't going to be a desert version of the Snowmobile. that'd be too dumb for words.
the flight pod thing is also too dumb for words. so's the mole pod for that matter (that's been a head-shaker for me since it was first unveiled)
My 25th Most Wanted List:
1. Tunnel Rat <-CHECK! 2. General Hawk (v2)<-CHECK! 3. Leatherneck <-CHECK(kinda...)
4. Jinx 5. Dusty <-CHECK! 6. Snow Serpent <-CHECK! 7. Tele-Viper <-CHECK(kinda...)
8. Falcon<-CHECK (kinda...) 9. Footloose <-CHECK! 10. Recondo <-CHECK!
9 down, 1 to go ~ but i really want a new Leatherneck and Falcon

Thank you Hasbro for listening to the Fans, and actually including some classic merchandise with the movie stuff.
Hats off to you for this!
Snow Cat - not entirely thrilled with the new missiles, but it has ski-pedos and another arctic dude, so I'll be getting bbetween 2 and 4. Pure, Utter, WIN!
Rage - looks great, and the added spring-missile-launcher doesn't detract from it. Well done. Probably only 1 for me though
Sharc Repaint - probably cobra, probably pass. Depends on who it comes with
Rockslide with Dusty - meh. depends what it looks like painted, and if they get a different character outta dusty's gear. If yes, I'll get, if no, no.
Mole Pod with Secto Viper - depends on who the character is. I'm passing on the first one, so if its a secto-viper I'll probably bite.
Ferret with Leatherneck - if they get the right camo on Leatherneck yes. Honestly, the Ferret looks kinda good this way, different from the cobra one.
The Flying pod with ?? - depends who the figure is. If new character yes. if not, no.
Still, overall, 2 HELL YESes, 4 possibles to probables, and 1 no.

These are coming out this year.
Remember how they said pre Toy Fair that there would be a two person Sharc? Well there it is.
I bet we are going to have all these vehicles by Christmas.
