CC and CT are ok, and I'll like them. Alpine is the seling point for me.
Duke is a waste of plastic.

Cobra Commander... I like the helmet and accessories. Nice touch! But not enough to get me to buy.
Trooper. Meh... not bad. I can take it or leave it. Im happy with the other baldies.
Alpine... VERY NICE!!!! BUT... Unless I can pick him up in a side deal somewhere... I will have to pass I guess. But very nice figure! They did a fantastic job on him!
Hasbro.. MORE OF THE REAL LEADER PLEASE... HAWK!!!!

I actually really like this set. I like having a different trooper and since I sold all my CC's (actually, I did that after seeing this pack...haha), then it's good to have the CC. I wanted a Duke that has corrected arms in similar to original colors, so a head swap and some accessory swaps and he's perfect. Alpine...not much need to be said there.

Wow those are some huge improvements on Cobra Commander and the Cobra ParaTrooper. That Duke looks like John Cena. I want that set just for the Alpine.

Alpine looks great and has the right gear as well. Duke is a waste of my time once again. CC looks good with his chrome and the claw.
The Trooper looks better as well

Got mine in the mail today as well, and have to agree that the whole thing is "win".
Duke getting new arms and an older looking (albeit scene specific) head is great, as is the new straps for the jetpack.
The Soldier is well done as well, with the newly sculpted head and helmet and the harness is a fantastic piece which I will be working with for other figures very shortly.
Alpine is great, and the only drawback I see is that the gauntlets are glued to the forearms facing forward, so the hands can only hold stuff "gangster style" cleanly. A small drawback. Also, the lack of the Beretta model 12 is easily fixed with a casting.
The CC is great, but......mine has a pretty large spot on the right faceplate where the chrome did not take. It looks terrible, and my bud who bought two had both of his with the same issue. Options are to complain to the retailer (won't accomplice much since they are sold out), complain to the manufacturer (probably won't help much due to the "minor" nature) or suck it up and pay to have them stripped and rechromed. Looks like option three. Otherwise, this figure is greatness with the newly sculpted parts and I really dont' see any way they could improve on this version of the figure.
All in all, this pack is a must have!

Now why didn't they use the trooper's helmet & make a battlefield uniform Cobra Commander in the VvV DVD boxset.
