Why doesn't Hasbro do 5-packs of just the Army Builder soldiers?
But here's the catch: no weird colors. No "special" repaints of faux "commanders". Just a 5-pack of Cobra soldiers (red symbol), a 5-pack of Vipers... CG's... HISS Drivers... Snow Serpents and so on.
I'd have to think these would sell REALLY well-- plus Hasbro could make plenty of extra cash off of pre-existing figures, mold, paint apps and so-on.
Just seems like a no-brainer to me.

I think they would sell really well, too and the army builders here would love it, but I'm guessing they don't because they get a higher profit margin on Single carded figures, including army builders... then they can save the 5 packs for repainted "exclusives" and people will STILL buy them.
It would be nice though... I'll be interested in seeing the IG 3 pack that's rumored to be announced at Joe Con. I think it's the first time a new body troop builder (e.g. not CG Fred or Scarface) has been available in a multipack before it was on a single card.
