The new hiss is ok. I'm not sure if its worth $25 yet. I want the resolute hiss and this kind of looks like a smaller one. But the repulsive gunner storage and the lack of a trailer hook hold me back.
That updated vamp however is amazing! Its exactly what vehicle fans want right now. A solid jeep with lots of weapons and seats for multiple joes.
I see a crank on the engine top and the green prototype pieces on the bottom lead me to expect some kind of action feature.
Perhaps this vamp can also elevate itself. Kind of like a few M.A.S.K. vehicles.

I'm not trying to be a naysayer, I suspect the only way we're going to get "multiple" G.I. Joe lines is if the upcoming animated series presents a style-shift that makes it impossible to keep the figures realistically proportioned. (See: Clone Wars or Transformers Animated). If the animation allows for realistic proportions (and maybe just slightly more "animated" headsculpts ala Resolute) then they'll just do an "animated series" line that will be canceled to make way for the movie sequel if/when it comes (just like Transformers Animated was).
Basically, if the new animated series is done in a style that lets them keep the same body construction, they'll stick with a single-line. If it requires an all-new aesthetic they'll probably try to keep a "realistic" line of some sort running parallel (if the retailers will let them, which is a huge "if"), but make no mistake: It will be the "lower priority" of the two lines, and will probably get minimal new tooling and very little shelf-space (but on the plus side, the character selections will probably be much more collector-friendly as is often the case with niche lines like this would be). Vehicles will be almost entirely from the new animated series but compatible with both lines (like the Clone Wars stuff).
While RoC isn't the failure some want to make it out to be, it's also not a raging success. I don't think its' performance will have convinced retailers that the brand is strong enough to support multiple lines yet.

Gyre-Viper, great going letting us see these!
Every time I think I can hold back by cutting vehicles, Hasbro pulls me back in.

Money saved for me. Nothing in those pics screams "I MUST HAVE!" And if they are 25.00, they can sit there and collect dust. I guess I will have to see them in person and get some reviews but as of right now... I am not purchasing those.

Heh, I just bought that "Vamp" vehicle at Wal Mart the other day, except the box said "The Corps!" on it. ;) Seriously, it is the exact same design! I'm sure the Hasbro one will be better, more detailed, etc., but then again the Corps one was only 13 dollars...
I don't like the Hiss better than the original, but it is a cool-looking vehicle. It seems to match the design style of the Cobra Gunship too, which I like. I'll probably buy the new Hiss.

I like the HISS when its in the low profile mode, not so much when its got the D.E.M.O.N teabag thing going.

Awesome... I'm in...
I came back to Joes with the 25th line, and I was wholly happy to take a break from collecting with RoC, but everything I've seen with PoC, from the figs to the vehicles is just sucking me right back in...
I don't mean to be a hater, but everything I see with PoC just makes me wich the RoC line would hurry up and be done... C'mon January!!
