I think they should put more Fireflys and Zartans in the line if they are going to do this many CCs. He is the main villain and the joes need someone to fight.
But we need more agents of Cobra: Big Boa, Raptor, Crystal Ball. Include one of those per wave and you can include all the SE, Duke, Destro, and CC you want Hasbro!

Everytime I see the many various Cobra Commanders, either in stores or in my boxes. I just remind myself of that kid 26 years ago that never could find one and how it took him some 20 years to finally get a v.1 Cobra Commander.
So many times as a kid I told the Santa at Hills and K-Mart that I wanted a Cobra Commander for Christmas. I did that every year til I stopped getting Joes.
Looking back I probably have one now for everytime I asked. lol I should of asked for gold bars...

If you haven't noticed the isles and the news of new product is pretty baron. So we must come up with something to talk about. I know we can't talk politics but can we talk news media/headlines, superbowl or oscars? Mods are the last three allowed?

Here's the real answer:
Cobra Commander, along with Snake Eyes, Storm Shadow, Duke, and Destro, are core characters that "drive" the line. If some new collector decides to start collecting, say - this morning - then he can go to Target and probably grab most of these guys. It's a guaranteed sale. From Hasbro's perspective, they will always make money on these characters because they're the most recognizable. Cartoons, comics, other media, these will be the characters at the front of the line.
And it sounds like it's working, if you have so many of them. Continuing to buy these repeat figures only confirms Hasbro's marketing predictions.
When I first started collecting the 25A line, I picked up Wave 1's Storm Shadow and Snake Eyes only. I told myself that I'd only collect the really cool ones and my favorites characters. A month later, I was frothing at the mouth waiting for the next wave.
It's not a bad thing though. Continuing to buy all the CC, SE, SS, etc ensures that the line will survive, and they'll continue to produce more peripheral characters alongside the repeat/repaints.
