They are really not that bad for $11.21 per figure using Hasbro's 10% off code with SMILE8. They look to come with a gold/bronze stand and are already rare as they are limited in short supplies as online exclusives. You do not have to drive to get them wasting gas money. Hasbro has been doing this for years with the Star Wars line. They even charge $15-$18 for their single exclusive figures. I am a 25th Completist. I have to get them.
Another thing, G.I. Joe fans can not complain as they will never get the really large vehicles/playsets if they do not buy them. The new Pit and Night Raven will really be a test. Many complained on the price of the Target Exclusive Ultimate Battle Pack when broken down, it was cheaper than buying them individually at $62.99 plus tax.

I think the biggest gripe, at least with me concerning HOH, is a very simple one.....Why didn't they make em this way the first time around?

Because people are never satisfied regardless of what the product is in today's society. I am really thinking that once people have these figures in hand they will be appreciated more than they are right now.
I personally (as a MOC collector) love how they look and cannot wait to get them in April. I am sure there are loose collectors who are not happy just like I have been with some of the non single carded figures I would like to display.

I picked up my gung ho today and wished i had voted for him. We were duped. We should have picked the 10 worst figures so we could get worthwhile replacements of them.

The biggest gripe is that, for the most part, we've already seen these figures already.
Flint, Snake-Eyes w/ Timber, Zartan and the Viper have all been released in the new 5-packs.
What's so special about the remaining figures?
Beachhead, Storm Shadow, B.A.T. just has extra accessories. And not new accessories, just all the accessories that came in various versions.
CG is the same as the one that came w/ the comic pack, just repainted and with more accessories.
The all black Snake-Eyes, don't see what's so different from the single carded.
Firefly is the only one that's remarkably different.
People were expecting something special for these figures, besides just packaging.
You're paying the extra money for nothing but special packaging.
It's just kind of a let down.

my only complaint is the price for a single figure ($10+ per figure is too much in my book), and the fact that they are online only. If I saw them in stores I would be tempted, online it's easier to pass on them.
As for the PITT and the Night Raven if thy are gimicky and I don't like the design look, then I will not buy them, and I still reserve the right to ask for Big Vehicles that do not suck. (that is if these suck like the rest of the movie line so far does).
On to the UBP. aside from the Mobat (which needed retooling for the 25th line btw) and the half assed attempt at Short Fuse, everything in it was a repaint of what we already had. when you factor that into it you have a different picture. some of us were looking at it as $64 for a Mobat and a quasi-Short Fuse, and a bunch of stuff I already have. looking at it that way you have a $32 figure and a $32 tank.

I just looked them over on hts, and i'm glad i paid 8 for a zartan with a swamp skiier rather than 10 + shipping for a zartan without a swamp skiier, no matter how silly it looks.
