Hey all, I'm just curious as to what the difference really is between the newer HoH figures and the current style figures that have recently been released.

Supposedly, it's the definitive (best) version of each figure included (although this is highly questionable for Firefly particularly)... and you pay a lot more.

i think each fig has a bit more detail, i know the viper has a chrome face and fixed wrists just like the 5 pack one which is a plus and the figs come with extra weapons and accessories.

i'm a sucker for sweet packaging, but i'm an MOC collector. so that's that.
i think your question has been answered. HOH are supposed to be the 'definitive versions' of these legends. i might have to agree. it's hard to argue.
i know the fans voted for these, but wouldn't it have been perfect had Hasbro decided not to include TWO freaking SE's? which character came in 11th place? i'd love to know. personally i would have liked the Baroness. imagine the 5 pack version of Baroness on HOH.
that would have been ideal.

Too bad they didnt just give us these versions first.
since they arent retail i dont have to worry about purchasing them.
maybe in a few years in a cheap lot off ebay when they get to vvv status ;-)

there's nothing definitive about these IMO. really, what have they done to SE's v.1 that makes him more definitive than the 5 pack or other single carded versions. is a Fred CG really a definitive version of the CG? if so, we already got him. Beach Head, he's less definitive than the new comic pack version who at least comes with a head swap. maybe it is the dirty boots that makes him.
these sets are nothing but unfulfilled marketing ploys. it would have been very easy to do 10 definitive versions of any character released so far with the wide array of parts now available and Hasbro did nothing more than the standard repaint with minimal parts changes. there's nothing definitive about that.
