They'd be great for extra surprises on Halloween.

Well, it was inevitable that these would be made, seeing how they've done it for every other boys' line they have.
I kind of like them. I didn't really like the SW or Marvel ones, but I bought the G1 Transformer versions and I'll likely get these as well, once they hit retail. I won't pay crazy dollars for this set just because it's a SDCC exclusive, though.

Sweet! I can't wait for these!
I have a small stockpile of the SW Galactic Heroes waiting for my son to be old enough for them, as well as a fairly current run of Super Hero Squad in my collection. Not into Transformers, and the Indy line hasn't really grabbed me, but I can see myself rounding up two sets of Combat Heroes: one for me and one for my boy.
2009 will be a great year!

Now I can understand the disappointment for those who go to the cons with intentions only on picking up a desirable exclusive, and this not being what they had intended, but I think its great.
And yeah CC, these things would make great lil gifts, even to older GI Joe fans.
Heck, my sister gave me a collection of Star Wars Pez despensors for my birthday, and I thought it was neat as hell.

As with Cobra Commander, I am glad that this is a lame-o exclusive (in my opinion, of course). This way, no worries about getting them
Though I really would like that Nemesis Prime Transformer :(

I posted a question about if we should expect to see these made into GI Joe figures some months ago when I was standing in the aisle of Walmart and realized I was surrounded by Marvel, SW, and Transformer ones. I think the general consensus was that they'd be out closer to the movie, though.
Personally, I think they're cute and I've always appreciated "artistic interpretations" from other genres.
I can see the disappointment from the point of view of "adult" collectors not liking the idea of this being at the convention. I also see the irony and am having a good chuckle over it.
I'm only disappointed that this one's a SDCC exclusive simply because it means I won't be seeing it on the shelf.
