Well it it's like last time, buying by the case works out considerably cheaper per figure. As a small army builder, I couldn't pass up the deal. And if the case assortment has three of each I'll wind up with that... or whatever the ratio works out to be. But again, that's pending final prices as well, I suppose.
My dream case would consist of 2 Joe packs per say 8 Cobra sets. But that seems unlikely even if they go with the 10 sets per case. More likely it'll be a 2:3 ration Joe/Cobra. Am I overthinking this yet?

I'm going to sell my house and see how many Troops i can build. jk ..But almost worth living in a tent at the public park; although the wife wouldn't be too happy about this.

Well, I'm only buying one of each pack, because I don't want to be a douchebag. I don't care how cool army building looks...I can't play with fifty vipers at one time. I just need one of each figure, and I'm a happy man. Honestly more interested in the Joe pack than the Cobra one, but really want both. I seem to be a minority among collectors, in more ways than one. Sorry....didn't mean to lash out with the douchebag comment, just...frustrated. With the new characters, and what looks like a lot of new sculpting, I'm sure, among collectors, these will sell very well. But, for me, it's like dinner, I don't feel its appropriate to have seconds until everyone gets their firsts. Its hard to watch people get seven, eight, nine packs, when somewhere out there is a guy or gal who just wants one, but can't get it because people overload on them. Or have to buy them from scalpers. For the most part, tankers are good people, I've found, but its the other collectors out there that I know are gonna gobble these up. Just hope to get my hands on one of each. Shame about the vehicles... I wanted to see some more cobra vehicles besides three repaints of the HISS.

1 set of both Joe and Cobra will suffice
Now that Wave 5 Vehicles will be released this changes everything.
Now if I end up getting Flak Vs Claw; will trade CLAW and Outback and keep Strato-Viper and FLAK, then only 2 I'd want in set is Mindbender and Lamprey
For Joes just as mentioned from earlier

I'd like to have 5 or 6, but guessing on the price point, I'll probably be in the 2-3 camp.
