this is the definitive Storm Shadow to me.

Until reading this set of reviews, I was going to completely skip this set. The reasons for your ratings are very compelling.

I am really liking these sets! I can't wait for them to hit my area.
But I am looking at his as a means to swap parts to make the difinative version of these characters (if needed).
Barroness: Absolutly beautiful sculpt. By far the best version to date. I would not change a thing to her.
Storm Shadow: I am like the new lower arms they made for this figure. To bad that they did not do the colors black instead of the grey. Plus, I am not so much of a fan of the cartoon as I am of the comics, so I plan on swaping out the lower arms of the first version with these new ones and giving the nunchucks to finish the difiative Storm Shadow. The rest is custom fodder.
Zartan: Not liking this one. strickly custom fodder
Cobra Commander: This one accully like because of the darker color uniform. He is replacing the DVD pack version. Plus the staff will be a great accessory for Serpentor.
Cobra Viper: After having the CC with the crome facemask, it only makes sence that all future Cobra soldiers that had that type of face mask/helmet should also be cromed. It looks good on him. Plus I like the new shoulder patch, it adds additional appeal to the figure. The arm fix was never much of a deal with me and it will give a little diversity in the ranks.
All in all, a good set. I am getting this mostly for the new Barroness, and the other figures are gust a bonus.

Shogi, can you show a comparison pic of Zartan heads like you did with CC? The heads are looking different on Zartan. Same hair, but I think it's a different head. Perhaps it's the head from the original Zartan?

This set is the lesser of the two new 5-packs.
Cobra Commander is nothing new really and other than his staff is pretty boring; 4/10.
Storm Shadow is a pretty good figure although the upcoming HOH figure improves upon this version a little bit (white feet and black belt); 7/10.
The Viper is definitely better looking and has the "fixed" hands now. I don't like the new chrome helmet, though. This version isn't really a whole lot better than the wave 7 figure (I thought that figure was fine the way it was); 7/10.
Baroness is by far the highlight of this set. She's now really poseable and looks a lot more kick-ass. The face sculpt is kind of off and I don't like the straight hair (the windswept hair looks better to me); 9/10
Zartan is plain and looks kind of lame with his gray boots and hot pink chest armor. His belt is also not painted and his eyes are bright green; 3/10
The Cobra 5-pack has got 1 great figure, 2 figures that are good but have better versions and 2 very mediocre and boring repaints. I give it a 6.

Not a bad set really, but Zartan will become fodder. The Viper doesn't bother me. Baroness may get a head swap, but looks great. Too bad SS has grey on him and I like the first 5 packed one a lot. Maybe and arm swap? I don't know. I did give this a lower rating though as it could have been a better set. Instead of Zartan why not Dr. Mindbender, or if sticking with existing figures why not a...well I don't who else, but it could have been someone else.

I ordered an extra set mainly for the baroness to have one opened, but since I don't have a normal SS I am glad this one is pretty decent, the Viper looks cool as well, the other 2 I will probably try to unload.
I love the Baroness, but that paint job on her face needs to be fixed, a couple little touch ups and I think this figure will be one of my favorites out of the whole line.
And I give the set a 9/10, mainly because I would have never even thought about buying a second set without the baroness, she put it up there, if it was just a repaint of an older B, I would give this set a 4/10

I'm not impressed with the packaging, got mine today and the box flap is very flimsy and the box itself is a cheap looking thin cardboard.
