Hasbro quite often screws us with combining things in a set that people really want with things people really don't want.
I'm not sure what the complaint is about, though? Are you upset that they released a vintage vehicle you don't care for? Is it because they combined it with the new one that you don't like?
I thought it was cool that they brought back a vintage figure to go with a vintage vehicle. I actually had no intention of getting the new Rockslide, but now that I have it I kind of like it. It's one of those things that I had to see out of the box to start to like I guess. I like both figures that came with it.
I think it's a good set.

It might be worth it for $17.99, but i just couldn't pull the trigger for $24.99.

Target Exclusive 25th single
Regular 25th Release
Target Exclusive 25th Battle Box set
and before that we already had 3 from the vintage line (4 if you count the Septic Tank) and another from the SpyTroops/VvV line
However, if they did one with the Hiss II.....different story

I got this set about 10 days ago. The Polar Battle Bear is cool, and brings back a lot of memories. I just wish they used the 25th ann. pegs instead of the vintage pegs. They could have released a repainted 25th SN as well. The ROC Rockslide starts to grow on you when out of the box. It seems like it could function well, but here is no place for other troops to ride on the back. Overall, this set will be worth it, when it is on the clearance rack after X-mas.

I see this pack at all of the Targets I go to, and I just cannot justify $25 for it, especially when it will be on clearance in a month for probably $18. Not just that, but as stated in the review, they aren't even the actual original Snow Job and Polar Bear, but 2000 reissued versions repainted.
Evil will always triumph because good is dumb.

Very nice looking set, but I'll hold onto my money waiting on a Then & Now Cobra set.

Saw this set last night. I really like it, too. I don't collect old ARAH stuff, so I hesitated in buying this. But Shogi's review is making me think twice. And I love the repaints. The brown on SJ looks great. If I get it, I might throw a spare Flint head on him so I have a Arctic Warrant Officer.
UPDATE: Thinking on this further, sets like this one might be good for those of us who are newer to collecting and maybe don't have all our old ARAH stuff. Be nice to obtain a handful of ARAH pieces. I say bring on more of the past and present sets.
