After a few weeks of "just missing" the wave 4's, I got my Copperhead and Shippy set 2 days back. Got one for my brother, as well as a Red Star one. I am passing on Red Star, and the SS/Firefly sets.
I read the comic with the CH/SW. Wow, it's not a very interesting read, and the art is very sub-par to what we've had before. I see parts were the pencils don't even seem like they were inked, just colored over. Looks like it's either a very amateur job, or a very rushed one.

The Red Star figure is AWESOME!! Great sculpt & color choice & Fully loaded!!
The Duke (year 1) is lame though... The knife is junk, he has no place for his pistol, & his lack of belt is a disappointment visually. His head doesn't look porportionate in person (even improved upon by being made from the flesh plastic) as it is too large for the SE body...
FF & SS is one of the BEST comic packs out there with FireFly (night ops) being one of the BEST figures of the entire line... He comes with a TON of fun gear & has better coloration than the original.. The Storm Shadow (Devils Due) is a NICE version & compliments the FF perfectly...the claw ROCKS but he should have come with the leg knife...
Copperhead is HUGE & really captures the essence of the original & will stand out in your display.. also the Shipwreck (pfd) is better than the original version... the flesh plastic for his head is a vast improvement & the color choice is solid. Plus the pfd looks good.
The comics often have the Doc stickers & File cards inside of the newly bagged issues... all 3 issues are much better than the new story wave 3 released comics...
I recommend all 3 packs with the FireFly (night ops) being the BEST of the figures & the Duke (year 1) being the worst.

I've seen two people complain about a missing leg knife on Storm Shadow... if you read the comic Storm Shadow reaches for an ammo clip for his Uzi on his leg... and it is missing. So they intentionally left an empty holder... but it is for his ammo clip not a knife.
Also, as the previous poster stated, the doc stickers and file cards are inside the comic.

I just got the Copperhead and Firefly comic pack figs from a board member a few days ago, and I echo Steel Brigade's comments re: Firefly. Even though it isn't exactly his vintage look like the wave 3 figure was, all the cool accessories (including the goggle, that I put up on his forehead), and the darker color of gray really, really work with him. Surprisingly to me (someone who is only into these toys to begin with because of the nostalgia factor), he is one of my favorites of the line.
Copperhead is also pretty great in his own way. The stupid Roadblock hands suck, but he is distinctive and he was always a favorite Cobra of mine as a kid, so I dig him. With both of these figures, I'm really happy that the quality of the sculpts and paint jobs seem to be a step up from waves 1-3, IMO. I hope that it carries over to Falcon and Nemesis Enforcer.
Back off man, I'm a scientist.
