I agree with the Jungle set most of you have been listing (Recondo, Leatherneck, Muskrat, Grunt and Footloose)[2 re-release figs helps with cost]. I left out Outback because he should be coming with the FLAK and I want him in the Night Force pack. Plus, Grunt needs a re-release.
I also agree that a Night Force 5 pack would be cool (Falcon, Outback, Shockwave/blast, Tunnel Rat, and Repeater).
If Ninja Force is going to be done, a 5 pack there would be the best way to execute it with a couple of singles and a 2 pack to fill the roster (5pack: Snake Eyes V5, Storm Shadow V3, Nunchuk, Tj'Bang, and Dojo. Singles: Scarlett, and Red Ninja Master/Firefly. 2-pack: Slice and Dice). There should be enough parts currently in circulation to make these guys look pretty good with minimal new/updated sculpts.
Since Cobra has a cold weather set, I think a Joe one would make sense. To keep with the re-hash mentality and the cartoon homages that have been seen in the past, I think a 5 pack with Duke (and the cold weather jacket from Arctic Snake Eyes and his normal legs), re-release Snake Eyes in cold weather gear, Scarlett with jacket (similar to Snowbunny Padme with soft goods and done in cartoon colors), Stalker V2, and Iceberg would work. That way you keep the "main" characters in the line and can re-use enough parts to make it cost feasible.
As for Cobra, give them an Alley Viper 5pack. 1 dude should have some sort of squad leader designator and the 4 others be EXACTLY the same. I can see a cool street-side background for this set in my head already.
What do you think Hasbro? Tankers?

I figure all of the 5 packs have been repaints, so I that's the only reason I wouldn't vote for a dreadnok set--I want the 'noks to have their own sculpts.
My top packs I wouldn't mind seeing (even if they are all repaints or kitbashes):
cobra blueshirts (you always need the classics)
civilians (they could cobble these together from various lines over the years +how awesome would this five pack be for the customizers out there) with jeans/tshirt guy and jeans/tshirt girl, suit/tie guy, all business lady, and little kid. add variant sets with different headsculpts or screaming heads or zombie heads or heads with different hats and you could have the start of a whole new line unto itself)
A history of GI Joe Leaders set, with Joe Colton (repainted Clutch head), Cartoon Hawk, DDP's General Rey, Movie Duke, & New Comic Scarlett)
Sigma Six Set--mostly repainted gi joe movie suits with a robot arm here or a ninja sculpt there; if they could steal headsculpts from Star Wars or Marvel Universe, the could make awesome versions of guys like Lt. Stone, Long Range, blue Kamakura, the Ninja Bat, Hi Tech, Recondo, or Lockdown.
A Cobra Inner Circle Set with repaints of resolute Cobra Commander, Zartan, Destro, and Tomax/Xamot. You could substitute Baroness and Major Blood if you like, but it'd be nice to have all of these figs in one awesome display set. Actually, that'd make one hell of a seven figure set a la the extreme conditions.

After re-reading some of the suggestions in this thread, it makes me wonder why Hasbro hasn't put out more army-builder 5-packs. Granted, they probably wouldn't sell as well as sets with more popular characters (SE, SS, CC, Duke, etc.). But the cost to produce them would be pretty low.

What should be good about 5 packs is to put some characters that maybe they can sell better offered like this.
I would love to see a 5 Pack like darthdrew13 said with Recondo, Leatherneck, Muskrat, Grunt and Footloose but a second wave with Hit & Run, Recoil, Big Ben, Freefall and Ambush would be awesome, sell it with "mission something" and it would be a great seller!
Another thing i would kill to see is a Python Patrol pack, it's an obvious one.
And a "Viper Pack" would be great as well: A Viper (can't get enough of them), Tele Viper, Rock Viper, Alley Viper and my personal favorite: Nigth Viper!!!!

OK just looking through the thread and seeing what most people are bringing up, there is an obvious want by collectors for some things that are sorely missed. I know maybe Hasbro thinks that now is not the time or something, but they need to remember that the collectors of today were the kids of yesterday. If we still like these things now maybe kids today will like them too.
So just a rough recap of the top ten requests:
1. Dreadnoks (All NEW!)
4. Joe Jungle set
5. Ocktober Guard
6. Tiger Force
7. Iron Grenadiers (No Destro Please)
8. Cobra Blue-shirts
9. Joe Arctic
10. BATS/BATS Evolution/BATS with Mindbender
Honorable mentions: Viper pack; Civilians/Secondary; International; Mission Brazil; Steel Brigade;
