R2 and even the Ewoks are the actual story tellers. Jar Jar was supposed to be something like that... the Force uses these characters as tools to help
the heroes etc... Joseph Campbell...blah blah blah. you get my point.
Marlon Wayans' closest attribute to Jar Jar's character is that both of them
become 'initiated' into a cause. and that's where the comparison ends.

This is an awesome wave. I can't wait for these. The SE and SS are bad ass. I'm digging the Desert Viper too. I even like Ripcord. I like Duke the least but I'm sure I'll get him.

Once I have that ROC Resolute Snake Eyes safely in my hands I will instantly forgive Hasbro for every poor toy decision they have ever made. LOL.

For someone that sports an avatar, a sig -of a repaint no less- and ask for the same character done already to death (44 versions at least!) that sounds a bit silly.
You're also complaining of a bit of extra gear, which can be used on another figure, as the others are complaining about Duke having a sword and call it lazy and stupid shit...while most of the cobra army doesn't make sense at all?
I understand that you don't like the look of the figure, that's ok, as i don't like the normal vipers for example.
But these figures, and specially the desert viper, despite of being a repaint (like half the 25th stuff!) it's well done. A ton of gear to use on whatever you want, better articulation, detailed painting...
Just as you "dont get why yall are so excited about an elite viper.." there's a lot of other people swearing that they don't understand the likes of whinners.

Still waiting for a Paris Pursuit Scarlett with boots and brown leather jacket. And then using the same body mold for a more classic-colors repaint of Cover Girl.
Hasbro did a classic colors Jazz in the Transformers movie line of toys, they should do Cover Girl this way too!

I don't understand the complaints about the extra gear. So Duke comes with a sword. OH NO!! What is the big deal? It's extra gear. Don't like it, don't use it. There's no law that says because the figure comes with it, you must use it.
I'm going to end up replacing the majority of the RoC figures guns (because I don't like them) with Marauders.
The nice thing about accessories, you can change them out, mix and match and just not use 'em.
I can see bitching about Bench Press and his lack of, because he doesn't even come with a gun. But when figures come with extra gear, people complain?
Just can't make people happy.
I don't care if it's a repaint, or if the googles have an actual use or not, I just care how the figure looks and this one looks great.
ARAH Vipers came with goggles, but had a full face mask. What was the point of their goggles? There was none. So what's the big deal that Desert-Viper/Para-Viper come with them?
