I'm just going year by year here off of yojoe.com...
I would really like to see a fixed crotch 'n arms red sigil cobra trooper. I still think that needs to be done right and put on a single card release. I would really like to see the officer get a fixed crotch 'n arms too. If they could work these guys into a battle pack for wide release that would be amazing. 1 officer and 4 troops done in the same colors as the original releases, just with the improved sculpts.
The stinger driver falls into this category. Hopefully, with the Stinger coming out later this year or next year, the driver will be much improved.
I could do without Lampreys, but i REALLY want a Moray Hydrofoil.
The Strato Viper is a must. I need some Cobra pilots. I would really like this one single carded, so i have other pilots, but if it had to come with a vehicle, it better come with the night raven.
The Motor Viper is a maybe for me. I think it might work, ont he same level avac works, but the uniforms at this point started to go into Star Wars territory.
Techno Vipers... i loved them as a kid, but again, really sci-fi. I think the Tele-viper is already pushing the sci-fi angle. I would buy it, but i probably wouldn't army build it.
Gyro Vipers, Ice Vipers, Sea Slug maybe... well, not so much for the sea slug.
The WORMS guy, i might get one or two to be field commanders for my army, but that would be it.
Astro-Viper, Hydro-Viper, ... sigh... toxo-viper, ...christ... secto-viper, star-viper not happening in my army. I had all these as a kid, and if they came out i would only get one to have them in my collection, but come on, really...
The Alley-Viper... i like the idea, but i would like to see it in a really, really, REALLY, muted color scheme.
The Night Viper is one of my favorites. This is probably the only great Cobra troop to come out post 1986.
Frag-Viper, HEAT-Viper, Aero-Viper, Track-Viper not happening. Sci-fi is just broken at this point.
Laser-Vipers, Range Vipers, Rock-Vipers no... same reason as above.
SAW Vipers... Same as the alley viper. Not the gigantic laser machine gun or whatever that was.
There are numerous other non-"viper" troopers after 1990, but i think we've just broken all reality (or possible realities) at this point. This is just my personal likes and dislikes, as i'm sure we all have. I think we would all agree that there are some here that need attention, and we would probably buy, but i also think that there are more figures from pre-1986 that need attention first and some resculpting on already released figures needs to be done before we think any further after 1986 (en masse).

They most assuredly will, we'll see them next year in the movie line.

Bazooka and Para trooper vipers make a LOT of sense to me and LOOK normal on top of that. Granted I KNOW that the RAH line WAS gear towards kids and playing where as the 25th line is more geared not only towards kids but also collectors. THAT explains all the goof vipers and weird colors of the RAH line, vs the more "serious" / real word kind of Vipers we are seeing like the Bazooka and Para Vipers we never had on the RAH line.
I don't mind these new additions we never had in the RAH line and gladly welcome them and will be happy to chase and buy them. I just CAN'T say and will NOT do the same if we start getting a bunch of old school RAH vipers that just don't make sense to me.
JMHO, YMMV -
