I like these, from the standpoint that i think kids will dig them. Man, if I was 7 years old, I would think they were pretty awesome. I'll pass on the cycle, unless I find it on clearance or something, but I actually like the funky Cobra vehicle. I wish the driver was more interesting, though. I think I may paint up an Elite Viper, or another figure, in funkier colors to go with this vehicle.

Just squint and pretend the Cobra one is Darklon's Evader. ;)
These sorts of "vroom vroom" toys rarely sell well as part of an action figure line, even to the kids. If you really do want one, I suggest waiting for the inevitable clearance.
At least they didn't rename the Elite Viper "Eliteblast" eh?

Cool I want a Street Viper!
Oh..wait.. I just saw what a "street viper" is. Nevermind. Seriously though, if they would put a bit of effort into using the parts they already have to make cool NEW vipers instead of just changing their names, they could actually sell this crap to someone.

i said it in the last thread, and i still hold my ground.
the motorcycle looks really lame. it reminds me of the C.O.R.P.S. cycle from 1997.
i just can't see these kind of toys doing very well in an action figure line. as an action figure geek, when i was a kid playing with my Joes, i wouldn't have even given these a second glance. the wind up motorized action packs were cooler than these things (and those were actually pretty damned cool).
*edit* i'd also like to add...when i was a kid, i just so happened to go to a toys r us in houston on a vacation and there was a snake eyes version 2 sitting on the peg. just one. three figures deep. i have NEVER seen another pegged,carded version of that figure since. it was like finding the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. but now a days, it seems like EVERY wave has 2 different snake eyes figures. and there is little difference between them this one has dark gray pants, and this other one has black pants and a different gun. and now we get another snake eyes figure with a lame cycle. why not have a different figure to go with that cheesy bike? why not have a different franken-joe to go with the silly looking car? another "(insert name) viper" is just insulting. i hang my head in shame at this attempt.

In the eyes of a snake, everything is either a threat or it is prey.

Big pass for me. If there were new figures with them I would've considered them but I am actually glad there aren't so I don't have to actually think about it.
