I'd rather have seen Ghostrider in the pilot pack. I imagine the only one of these I'm getting is Destro.
The Joe side of the TRU exclusives have been a little bit dissapointing to me.

everybody complains about the repaints and reused parts and such...its ok for me cause im not a completist. ie i didnt get the IG comic pack so the TRU exclusive is much better deal now, the ace and wild bill repaints are cool, and torpedo is my fav char so ill buy twenty or two hundred of him doesnt really matter

was waiting for this pack to do my wetsuit custom off of that torpedo, but man alive, that cutter is so awful i think it might melt the rest of my collection. single pack torpedo, here i come.

I'll be watching for these, especially the Air set. I have wanted a different Ace, so that's a good addition to my collection. And Starduster of course-a new member of the army.
As for Wild Bill, I don't need another but the black is cool and I'm very much looking forward to the new vest-I am considering putting it on my kitbash Crankcase. I might need two of those.
And yellow Torpedo just looks cool.
QUESTION: Does Deep Six have Torpedo's head?

These are exclusives that TRU wants to sell at a certain price point. So the fact that they are repaints should surpirse no one. Hasbro would not take 3 new molds and put them into a set that TRU could sell for less than $20.

Personally, I think the Joe sets are both looking great. Even if they are frankensteined repaints, we're getting two previously unavailable characters in Cutter and Star/Skyduster, two serious improvements in Ace and Deep Six, and a relevant (if not preferable) repaint of Torpedo in cartoon generic diver colors. Wild Bill is the least useful, but even his new colors are nice.
I don't care much for the Iron Grenadiers set. I'll probably pick up one if I can find it, but I really think the purple doesn't work at all for them. I get that Hasbro intends it as some strange homage to Voltar, but why not just make a Voltar figure? Also, if we have to get another IG Destro repaint, why not give him a silver head like he had at the end of the Marvel comic run?
