I'm so very undecided on this set. I've only bought the cobra one so far because I'm just not sure I like these figures. The SE is my favorite, but the rest seem odd to me. The head on Flint looks silly (plus I've made a TF in v1 colors anyaway). Shipwreck looks too cartoony for me. I don't see what was wrong with the first Lady Jaye sculpt for everything except maybe the head (and I prefer the first one to this one anyway).
I just can't quite bring myself to buy this set.

Both of mine arrived this afternoon. Can't wait to get them out tonight. For the most part I am in agreement with the Hawk haters. Hawk W9 is excellent in my opinion. He'll just get the helmet from this one and seeing how he served me well for many custom (legs and gear anyway) that's where this one will go too.
I am very excited for the updated LJ though. Never liked the 85 single pack. Back then I always wondered why she never resembled her cartoon appearance, which is what I like the most.
I am thrilled for the updated Shipwreck too. Yes, the arms look too thin, everything else looks great. There's been a spot waiting for him since the pre-order of this set back before the holidays when I figured it was okay to use the other as parts fodder.
SE and Flint will prob get swapped around. Old flint head on new body and SE, well we'll see where I go with him. He does look great though. I just don't like the good looking lower legs. Didn't like them on the animated purple one either. I am thinking black Commando SE lowers for him an a head swap.
I gave the set as a whole a 7.

Impressed with the new looks, but not enough
to buy a second set to open.
I will give it a 7/10 for the set, since they are just figures we have already seen.

I've been waiting since I first purchased the original 5 pack in July for a version of Wave 1 Flint to happen my way. Thanks to this set I will finally have one... soon... soon. LOL.
Hurry and get in the stores already! I need to have my Flint and Lady Jaye; my attempt to relive my childhood won't be complete without them. LOL.

I like Shipwreck's "shut up, bird!" pose.

Ive had mine since Friday and must say they both are winners in my book...Hawk is the only blah moment in the Joe set...Although his black Gear goes great on Wv 9 Hawk. I even switched out the collars...I don't like the White on Wv 9 Hawk.
The Cobra is a win cept Zartan and that CC is somewhat better. BUT for Baroness and that Viper and I cant forget Storm Shadows lower new arms...it Rocks.
Im only buying FF from HOH because the Flint and SE were the only ones I wanted anyway and I think the 5 pack versions are better.

I wish Hasbro would make the other V2 Snake Eyes in black. I think it was overall a better looking figure. This one is too cartoony but I'll doubt we'll ever see one. Too bad.
