Finally I was able to use that Tele-viper for my arctic Cobra Commander...
I also added part of the side holster from the IG Destro...

This set is a win. I hope mine ships soon. I'm gonna use the recipe for the Heavy Weapons Viper in regular colors. One a him will diversify my troops a bit and make 'em look a little tougher. I have a feeling a lot of peoplw will be using the Arctic CC recipe. I wonder why Hasbro didn't think of it?

There's one thing I don't get about the reactions people are having to these two sets -- why is this set considered far and away the better one of the two?
I really like the desert set -- you've got your CG repaints, and that's one of the greatest designs in the whole RAH world for me, you've got some neat basic Cobra troopers, and you've got a theme that works with things like the just-re-released desert A.W.E. Striker and in general desert stuff is neat.
In the arctic set, however, you've got THREE of essentially the same figure, including two that are pretty much identical to the carded version (one which IS identical and one which differs only in choice of accessories). That's insane to me. Three figures I already have, vs. none in the desert set. (I suppose Bludd counts as a re-release, though he's not exactly identical to any previous issue, and plus I never found him carded anyway....) Plus, I'm not crazy about the snow serpent -- that fur looks silly to me.
So, fine, maybe most people love the snow serpent. But do you love getting figures you already have in a boxed set like this? Is there some specific thing people DON'T like about the desert set?

For me personally, I like winter troops more than Desert troops. That's why I never bought the Desert set. I would guess that the reason everyone seems ok with the winter set having 3 Snow Serpents would be beacuse they are a good figure that many people are having a hard time finding. I was happy with getting 3 of them because I like to build armies of 5 figures each, so I only had to find 2 single Snow Serpents then buy this set and I was done.

That's a great idea to have CC in the winter gear looks really awesome!
