I'll probably grab up 1 of each set. Not saying I'm going to keep all 10 figures, but they all look a lot better than their previous incarnations.

I like the new sets. I'll pass on the Cobra one as I've already got a line on all the non army builder figures from that set. I don't really feel like getting the Viper, even though it's really nice. I just don't want to get tempted to army build him. I'll definitely want the Joe pack though.
Convention Tiger Sting (with or without Bazooka)
Will trade new BAT for a new SAW Viper
Steeler range finder piece (can be accessory pack)

I like the new Shipwreck but I miss the muscular forearms that he had and Flint has. Looks weird without them.
I wonder (and hope) if Lady Jay’s wrists turn.

I can't wait to pick up the Joe set, and Ill see if someone is selling the Zartan from the cobra set so I can get just him, I like him better then all the others that have come out so far.

I compared all of the new figures with the old ones and here's what I found out:
Lady Jaye - ALL NEW BODY SCULPT!
Only her head is re-used.
It looks like less Cleavage zipped up, but she has the pockets on her chest now and the accurate cowl that's upward in her neck. Shorter sleeves, wrist articulation at the gloves, new thighs with larger pockets, higher boots, new belt with pouch.
Flint - FINALLY FIXED
New Head sculpt, Webgear, Shotgun, TF Duke's upper arms, Shipwrecks' lower arms, Roadblock & Shipwreck gloves, different camo pants; stripes
Shipwreck - FIXED
New Head sculpt, New arms,
with messenger/explosives bag??? (Better for Snake Eyes?), brighter blue pants
With all New Polly Sculpt
Snake Eyes - Most Accurate v2 so far
Seems mostly like a repaint from the DVD Pack with new body sculpt and new sword sculpt.
With all New Timber Sculpt
Hawk - hmm...
new paint job, brighter colors.
Best new update is the painted goggles on the helmet.
But some details like his name seem to have faded.
The wave 9 one is pretty much great as it is.
Baroness - ALL NEW SCULPT!!!
WOW! The glasses look sooo much better now!
Only the hair is from the wave 8 which is great, that hair sculpt is perfect!
The Cobra Logo is sculpted on her chest which makes it stand out more. I'm not too fond of the silver webbing around her waist, but it does seem to give her more cleavage
Cobra Commander - Accurate
Well, yeah another but at least he has the cape!
And the cobra logo on the hood!
And the hood is darker as the suit which is accurate.
I like it.
Storm Shadow - Fixed Arms & Grey?!?
Ok, the new arm sculpt is sooo much better!~
It looks awesome! But, the grey belt & backpack should have been black and his boots white.
I'll definitely use these new arms on my v1 Storm Shadow to get a perfect Storm Shadow v1
Viper - FIXED & Chrome?!?
Well, He looks simply amazing!
Fixed wrists, even a patch on his left shoulder and the darker grey on his rifle is so much cooler.
The chrome vac is very cool, but...
What about the B.A.T. & Crimson Guards?
It'll be inconsistent with them...
I'll just keep the vac chrome on Destro & Cobra Commander only.
Zartan - eh...
Ok, he has the awesome wave 11 sculpt, but what's up with his paint scheme??? It looks weird.
I might use this guy to make a custom green skinned Zartan.
There are many new parts in these sets!!!
How can you like the slit wrist v1 Flint...
These new versions are SOOO AWESOME!!!
The Females got the most attention
The Joe set is definitely a win win scenario.
Only Hawk seems a bit unnecessary.
The Cobra box set is worth it for the Baroness and if you like a Viper Chrome Dome. Storm Shadow needed better colors on the boots, belt & quiver. For a customized v1 Storm Shadow, these arms will make him perfect.
Cobra Commander wasn't really necessary but is accurate. Zartan needs a better paint scheme for sure, he's the only real disappointment out of these 2 sets for sure.

Snakeyes and Baroness look great but knowing Hasbro they will be out single carded about 2-3 after the sets come out.

They're great sets, but this better be the last time (for the next few years anyway) they use any of the five-pack characters they've done to date. Especially CC, Storm Shadow, Snake Eyes.

I am mad that I invested in a small Viper army only to see yet another update packaged with the same damn figures.... a bunch of rehashes IMO but hey it's just that MO. That Viper is the only notable figure in either of those sets.....

Oh & I'm glad they gave the women new sculpts. I feel like they actually kinda listened to me!
