Here's the current numbers in stock at HTS. Anyone know the original stock totals? I think I remember reading 500 somewhere.
B.A.T. - 80
Cobra Viper- 200
Crimson Guard- 329
Snake Eyes (Timber)- 168
Snake Eyes (Commando)- 317
Storm Shadow- 137
Bats, Storm Shadow, Snake and Timber, and Firefly will be the first ones to go.

I'm sure Hasbro decided to change a few things to make the figure seem more "real", mainly the machine gun. But by changing the MG, the long clips on the vest really weren't necessary, so they edited the vest. I'm also guessing they decided to give Beach Head a more realistic color scheme rather than the bold 'beret green' (as Testors calls it) on his sweater and mask. I'm sure he satchel was dropped for cost reasons (you could actually fix this yourself by nabbing an extra one from Snake Eyes V1 if you needed to).
Later, us collectors clamored for an accurate Beach Head and Hasbro obliged us as much as they could with the comic pack version. But again, we clamored for something better so Hasbro puts it all together with the HOH release.
Now a figure like Snake Eyes was spot on from the beginning (with the exception of diaper-crotches) so the V1 black Snakes is simply a re-card. But since he is so iconic, collectors like myself actually want this immortalized version to hang on their wall. I open everything else so the HOH V1 Snake Eyes is Wallbound in my place.
HOH IMHO seems to be an Uber release sculpt wise, of each dude selected, but comes with the right accessories as well to give them play value, but then they also have nice packaging for display.
Pick your poison with them. It's all up to you. Here are my thoughts on each...
B.A.T. - Buying + Opening. Perfect play/display value
Beach Head - Pass. But would get if $$$ is less of an issue as he is Uber. Just satisfied with my 2007 fig with Marauder weapons. I like the more realistic color and the face scowl is better IMHO.
Crimson Guard/Fred - Pass. But would also get if $$$ was better because he is perfect (troop builder with a Removable Helmet)
Firefly - Pass. Only because I have the '07 fig and the comic pack fig and have mixed up the accessories (using the comic pack fig because it has the best paint scheme with '07 webgear, backpack and phone, but the other BP and extra gear is made available to him for Special Missions)
Flint - Buying + Opening. missed other releases and like the extra shotgun choice.
SE V2 - Buying + Opening. Black version of V2 with good gear and nice Timber (although I rarely display Timber)
SE V1 - Buying and hanging on wall.
Storm Shadow V1 - would buy and hang on wall if $$$ were better.
Viper - Buying + Opening. If wrists turn out to be corrected, will army build.
Zartan - Buying + Opening. best yet of Zartan but I will be painting his belt if it comes in maroon like the sample pics.
