Well, at least not part of my collection.
With every new wave that comes out, I can confirm that the Con Exclusive Roddy Piper doesn't belong in my 25th collection or with the new Joes coming out. I don't say this because I don't own it. I actually had a chance to purchase one at a decent price and still passed on it. Most figures that are out and future ones are far superior in many aspects. Plus, the Piper has nothing to do with GI JOE in my opinion. Do you feel the same way or do you need/would like the Piper to be in your collection?

He not part of the 25th in my book either. His articulation is not the same. So I passed on it. Same goes for the CC GIJOEclub has offered.
Loyal fan since 1982.

The body styling isn't the same from what I've seen. Strike One.
It's a wrasslin' character. While I used to be a fan of wrestling, Roddy, and, in fact, have met many of the greats from the old days (I also have a Rey Mysterio Jr. mask collection!)... I don't like them in my GI Joe (Peanut Butter + Chocolate, is still tops, though). Strike Two.
I know there are lots of Sgt. Slaughter fans here. I'm not one of them. Sorry.
It does have the 25th logo and new card style, but I'm an opener. The insane price attached makes buying one as a matter of trivia a pretty foolish idea. Strike Three.
Hot Rod is OOOOOUT.

Uh fellas, he was NEVER part of the 25th line.
He's a 25th special figure, but he's not part of this line. He's part of the DTC line. And hell even this line isn't the 25th line. It was just celebrating 25 years of ARAH.
I don't know why anyone is so thick skulled to think otherwise. I mean even Hasbro said he wasn't. What more do you need? He's made up of DTC parts even.
