He's saying he played devils advocate buy insisting these figures are part of this line, knowing that the majority of us do not own them. . . On a side note I always say not nice things about Hasbro and I'll give you my personal discourse. Last year at comic con during the sdcc destro(s), they gave "random" tickets out to con attendee's for a chance to buy the destro's. They limited 4 silvers and 2 golds. On the first day. Rodiumus of Alternators was also available, which is essentially what I wanted. So my ticket(s) that I cleverly absconded gave me a waiting time of 4pm. They still had more destro's but were sold out of Rodimus for the day. Mind you I have ALL the other alts. I need him positively without a doubt. My option was to use up my tickets on the first day to buy the six destros, or wait till Day 2 to buy my rodimus(es). Because on Day 2 surer than shit Destro was sold out. I hate sounding like a secondary Joe fan, but this year CC is an after thought aswell, as is the whole Hasbro booth. #1 because obviously I'm still sour grapes about last year, #2 I'm all about the Mattel booth this year, King Grey Skull What? Anyways I'll try to get 2 cc so I can customize my crimson twins.

I conssider my collection complete when I have the figures I want, and the amount I want them in. For example, I won't be wanting Bazooka, so i wont get him. I want 3-4 BATs, Hawk and Barbeque, so when Wave 9 hits, my collection will not be complete without them.
I guess I'm goofy that way.

Piper isnt really part of this line. Hes made of valor vs venom and dtc and gi joe vs cobra parts.
SDCC Destro on the other hand, is part of the line but was available only there. Hes an exclusive. Like the target exclusives. Did you get those?
That being said. My collection wont be complete until EVERY Joe figure from the old line gets 25th treatment. Even crystal ball and ice cream soldier.

I don't have all the comic pack repaints yet I still consider my 25th collection as 'complete' as I want it to be. Same 25th goodness, differnt color. Besides the price is way too steep and Piper don't look right, looks home made.

PD Destro?? Definately YES (at least 1 version of him silver or gold)...
Piper?? Definately NO, he isn't 25th body construction...

You don't need the Piper figure becasue he isn't truly a 25th figure. The styling is old school...I don't think the packaging makes him a 25th figure (the only people who do are those who own him...go figure).
You DO need a PPD becasue he is the same style of figure. PPD WAS obviously intended for the line unlike gayass Piper. Finally, you don't need silly variants because you're right, they are the same figure. This is coming from a guy who has some of those variants. A yellow Stalker or Black Timber SS are not significantly different. Really, these variants are really just for diehard collectors and people who appreciate having rare and expensive items in their collection.
I think you're real close to being complete, just get your PPD. I wish I had an extra, I'd give you it at cost. Good luck.
