Ok, this is funny and sad all at the same time so I'll share. I was in a Wal-Mart outside of Greensboro, NC when I happened upon a few Resolute 5 packs. At the time I still needed one so I picked it up. I opened up the first one to reveal 2 entirely new figures in there. Well, that flashed through my mind long enough for a few more neurons to fire and realized someone swapped out 2 of the figures for some old ones in their place. I thought this was pretty funny since I could put it down for another one with the correct figures in it. I guess someone REALLY wanted that Resolute Cobra Commander and B.A.T.
Here is the pic I took with my cell phone and for the record, NO. I did NOT do this. The Resolute Officer is in his correct place but just to make sure, who are the replacement guys there? Anyway, have fun collecting and keep your eyes peeled.

Scrap Iron and Astro-viper, both pretty good figures.

That's actually a "Shadow Viper" but it is the Astro-Viper mold and I don't call them Shadow Vipers, either.

Dude, All the repacks I see leave the CC and Duke, you should have told customer service and they would have sold it to you have price and you coul have gotten the Res bats and a pretty sweet Astro Viper.
