Yup, I'm glad I bought it. Was probably a little overpriced, but I bought it for the main reason I never owned a MOBAT when I was younger and really wanted one.
So the upside for me was (probably would have bought these all if they were separate):
- Short Fuze is a good figure, same body as Steeler, but decent accessories and cool head sculpt.
- Crimson Guard Hiss, Hiss tank driver (in all red) and the Cobra Vehicle Gunner (gray cobra trooper).
- New jetpack in green (on Stalker) that I can use with Grand Slam
- Quality of Steeler's materials was better IMO than the green variant.
- MOBAT! Finally have one in my collection.
- More Destros and CC that I really didn't need.
- An extra Stalker (nice update to his coloring) but not really needed
- Blue flight pod I would have passed on if it was single packed.
- Steeler can only fit up to his thighs in the MOBAT, so he looks a little "exposed" from what I'd envision a tank commander to be like shooting from a turret.
- Steeler's visor is not really reminiscent of the original '82 Steeler
Overall, a nice set, and unlike some past vehicle packs (i.e. Armadillo/Serpentor) where I didn't get all the accessories, the pack I opened was complete, so maybe quality control is improving on the 25th line.
Any how, I'm still glad I purchased the set.

Hell yeah I'm satisfied! I bought one, kept the gunner, Destro & the Trouble Bubble & sold the rest in seperate pieces on ebay. I made more $$$ back than what I had into it, which means the gunner,Destro & Flight Pod were totally FREE!!!!

I like it, I kept them all.
I agree with most of you though, why more Destro and CC? Hell I would have taken green shirts over more of these guys LOL

I love it. It was a win/win for me as I gave my 4 year old the repaints and the vehicles for his collection, and kept the short fuse for my collection. We are both happy.

I like it well enough.
I didn't really need/want another red HISS tank but I'm going to use it with my 25th Python Patrol stuff.
I've always wanted an IG Destro in V1 Destro colors, so initially that Destro was the only action figure out of it I really wanted. I decided to get the set so I could make a display of the cover of GIJOE #1...if they ever make a Zap.
Short Fuse will actually get decapitated and the TRU Officer Hawk's head placed on him for that display...don't really need him but good to have.
I think the Stalker's new colors look great, and he'll get used in that display along with the Steeler.
I also like the darker blue CC.

All I wanted was the HISS stuff, but I couldn't justify paying 65$ for it. So...
I got the Hiss driver and I'll be picking up the red hiss eventually on ebay.
Am I satisfied? Yep. I have a HISS commander for all my troops. He is a member of the Crimson Guard Immortals.

Destro is the only disappointment. The MOBAT is running him over. The Red HISS goes well with my Black and Target Blue. CC's Pod is nice. And who doesn't need extra troops and Short Fuze and Steeler?
I see what you did there.
