Okay, so it's not that dramatic. In a nutshell, somewhere on the site I saw a rumor that we weren't getting a few things- like the Resolute comic packs, or any single carded figures. Seems like we're just getting the crappy movie figures (and I mean, come on... they look HORRIBLE).
So, I need someone to give me a definate answer so I'm not saving money for them. I could just as we start buying more alcohol.

No one has a definate answer.
There were some comic covers for 3 new Resolute Comic Packs shown: Arctic Scarlett/Arctic CC; Underwater Duke/Lamprey; and Snake-Eyes/Night Creeper.
There's been a Quarrell/Scarlett shown (that people are thinking is the Arctic Scarlett). People are thinking that the 7-pack Wet-Suit is the Underwater Duke just repainted in Wet-Suit colors.
The wave 5 vehicles (Arctic HISS, Stinger, FLAK/CLAW) were shown and then canceled and are now back.
There was thought (but never officially said) to be a Wave 14 consisting of the Battle Damaged B.A.T., Zap, Night Force Falcon (speculation), Resolute Storm Shadow, some kind of Roadblock (speculation had it as Tiger Force) and possibly some kind of Destro (shadow on card art).
Some of the previous characters are in the 7-packs.
So bottom line, no one knows for sure if those are completely canceled and some made their way to the 7-pack or what.
There is no definate answer.
Not all the Movie figures are horrible. I'm looking forward to most of 'em.

Man i so want Arctic CC. Always thought they should do a figure like that when watched the cartoon. I wish they'd even do one of Cobra Commander when he was dressed up as the woman with his wig etc. I know i wanna get Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow from the movie line and also Destro and probably Zartan.
But i hope we still get more 25th stuff, theres a lot of em i've not even got yet.

I understand the principal behind Hasbro's decision to pull back on the 25th anniversary stuff, after all shelf space is limited.
But the fan in me think it completely sucks that everything is being put on hold for the movie figures - a movie that probably wasn't made with us fans in mind.
So in all likelihood? there goes the single carded figures of Short-Fuze and Zap. Other Joes like Fast Draw, Low Light, Airtight, and Footloose may never get to retail. Same goes for the rest of the Drednoks. Oh sure, they'll probably release a few as convention or Internet exclusives; but it'll still seem like the line died. Died to make way for the movie toys.
But hey, I could be mistaken. I mean there hasn't been any official word right? Maybe it'll be like with Transformers. Maybe we'll have a 'Joe Universe' line with representations from the RAH, Sigma 6, and movie lines. Here's hoping.
