I was so excited for the BATs to be released and still am happy now that I have a pile. I display multiple 5 person squads of most troop builders. Now that I have them set up with the rest, to me they really pale in comparison to the CG and Viper Squads IMHO. They are still nicer than the troopers though. It is hard to look better than CG squads led by the TRU officers.
Anyone else feel that way?
Or what do you think looks best in squads?

Like you, i realy like these figures. My display is a multiple 7.
My favourite is the one with Vipers & Crimson guards. On this display, i have 11 rows of 7 figures. Each sides, 3 rows of Vipers and in the middle, 4 rows of Crimson guards and a row of TRU Crimson guards officers. In front of these i have TRU red Cobra Commander, the twins, Storm Shadow and Destro.
For now, Vipers & Crimson guards are the best. I hope to have some BATS, Snow Serpent, Iron Grenadiers guards, Arctic & desert set very soon. They looks great...on pictures!

Same here. I will probably only get 5 BATS. I have 50 CGs, 30 Vipers, 40 wave 2 troopers, 15 wave 1 officers, 10 troopers for 5 pack, and 3 crappy PP troopers. No wave 9 yet

I'd like to get 30 BATS, since they were heavily used infantry. I have 30 Vipers and 30 Cobra Soldiers, only 16 CG's and less of the smaller troops (Stinger Drivers, Air Troopers, HISS Drivers, ETC)

I was doing 7 of each builder, cuz I like my numbers to be even all round. But with the new price increases, I may stop my troop building.

I think the Bats look the best, then the CG.

Seeing as I only go with classic figures, here goes what I have:
24 red sigil troopers (six are from the five-pack, the others are kit-bashed/customed since those are most like the original figures)
3 TRU Trooper Officers (since they are by far most like the original figure and cartoon)
8 Crimson Guards
6 Python Patrol Troopers
6 HISS Drivers
3 Stinger Drivers
1 BAT (on the way--but will ultimately get at least two more)
1 Snow Serpent (on the way--but will ultimately get five more)
I think the red sigil troopers are fantastic and they are the core of the Cobra army, not the BATS, Crimson Guards, or even Vipers.

I'm really into the Crimson Guard Officers, gold face black chest is awesome! I only have 3 but they're sweet and I cant take my eyes off them, lol. Can't wait to find the BATS, man i've been hunting every other day or so!
