So much drama 'n the LBCs

Not sure why they released the actual ARAH mold... Unless they release a lot more vintage-molded figures, then what's the charm of getting a few old-style figures? With recent pricing the way it is, I can't imagine these being cheaper than their vintage versions are running on eBay. I will bet that the vintage PBB can be found cheaper and in pretty good condition, if not better condition, on eBay than this new rerelease will be.
There's much more playability if both figures are interchangeable on the old and new vehicles.
I honestly expected them to release 25th versions with their ROC repaints/counterparts... I guess if they did that though, it'd be very telling that all the new ROC Snowjob is, is a bad repaint of the 25A version.
Either way, this is a big pass for me, as I'm not a reissue ARAH collector (Been there, done that, lost them all in a fire, not doing it all again) and I don't think the ROC versions are very appealing "updates".

yeah, if the don't make the PBB 25th compatible this is just a waste of everyones time IMHO ~ whoever, even if they did, o don't think Snow Job or Arctic Snake-eyes could ride it because of their coat-skirts... :-(
a updated 25th SJ with a reworked waist would have been nice...
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

Wow that is really cool, a real vintage re-release? I think I would get one of these and keep it MOC. However I really really do not like the new rockslide at all it doese not even look slike the Polar Battle bear. Why did they use the 80's version and not the 90s VvV rockslide with it's giant missile launcher on it? Hasbro is forgetting it's Joe roots apparently..
The message this thing send sme is, this is what it used be guys and that is all over now, thank you for buying the older stuff back when and get ready to always see the ROC stuff from now on as mainstream figures. Kind of like a demarcation line to show the new kids where they supposdley got thier inspiration from to prevent "confusion" in the toy lines. LOL
What's next? Ripcord and Wayan's 2 pack with a C-17 and full HALO jump gear? haha

Love this set! So glad o-ring figures are back in some capacity, even if it's just in an exclusive set. I'd prefer to be able to get just the RAH, but I won't complain about getting the ROC rockslide and a non-green paint app ROC Snow Job.

I wonder how much these sets will sell for? Maybe $29.99-$34.99 I would guess. Any one know for sure?
