I dig this set as well.I love the Battle Bear(er rockslide).The ROC version is ok I guess but I wanted the original version.I was worried that it would't fit the ROC Snowjob but it did but the "skirt"gets in the way.

I couldn't wait to get my hands on this awesome set and when I got home with it I immediately pulled them out and got the stickers on. I am one of a minority perhaps as I really dig the ROC Rockslide, very nice update on the concept and looks very sharp displayed. Having a new PBB, though not the original is the best part and I do agree that the O-ring is a bit too tight.

Well reviewed Shin!
I have to say that this set succeeds in multiple ways:
1. It includes an iconic vehicle that took some work from hasbro to get right. Nostalgia reigns in re-released toy lines. It's why the 25 th worked so well, and why we still are clamoring for more 25th toys
2. As a rise of cobra toy this is by far superior to the original rockslide offering. I never understood the use of green for snow job. Green = jungle and foliage not arctic! Overall color scheme of vehicle and figure are much better

This gets a 1 for me for these reasons:
1: The snowjob figure is of a horrible quality plastic. It's a bastardized form of the orignal and is terrible, kind a of a ripp off just for the low grade palstic used. If were going to get vintage o-ring garbage they could at least use the same level of quality of plastics the OG figures had (minus the lead contamainents, itsnot that hard lazy cheap ass hasbro as usual)
2) Being forced to have to buy the crapiest of all of the alpha vehicles from ROC just to get a nice brand new polar battle bear.
3) The vintage vehicle IS NOT and I RPEAT is not the Rockslide ATAV! Hasbro changing more vintage shit again for no good reason other than pure "this was then and this is now" propoganda to brainwash the kiddies in name and in visualization.
Fail Hasbro you failed on this one big time. I can't wait to see the next few of these, Armadillo vs. Armored Panther, White Tourble Bubble VS. Black and Red Trouble Bubble, Vintage Red and Blue Ferret with Vintage Scrap iron and Snake Traxx...lame future with these things...

lol all this thing does for me is show me and remind me how much better the 25th packaging was.... the card art, colors, and file card are all superior on the old school stuff. Logo is the only thing that has been modernized correctly.

The recent drop in temperature has increased my interest in arctic figures. Honestly, though, I'm not an old school enthusiast, so I'd only want the new Snow Job.
Although I will say these "then and now" sets are an awesome idea. Like others have said, I hope they do Cobra vehicles.

That artwork having Frostbite on it really chaps my ass. I just saw that.
That's bad QC on their part. Really bad. Our clients would never let something like that slide in final production art, but sometimes I just think Hasbro doesn't care.
Great artwork, and a shame we don't have Frostbite yet. Makes me hope we'll get one eventually.

Am I really the only person on hisstank that thinks the “Past and Present Rockslide ATAV Evolution” set is just plain stupid?
The first time I saw it I thought “wow! A crappy vehicle that cost 15 bucks along side the older one… why the f*ck would anyone buy that?” and yet everyday I log in to see whats new in the world of joes all I see is this and what the new storm shadow and snake eyes are. Give me a f*ckin break!
Is the new PoC snow job cool? Yeah I would waste money on it. I like that it comes with allot of useless stuff that I can throw in my useless weapons/accessories box (im serious ill totally buy it). But why do people get a chubby over this set?
The last time I was at target there were at least 40 (not kidding) of the things and noone was buying them… (by the way if any of you great tankers would want one of the 40 still sitting on the selves we can work out a deal only 17.99 around here)
Bottom line I think it sucks and I don’t see why there’s such a fuss over it. Why not just buy the first one they put out. i dont know it just sucks and im sick sick sick of it.
