Question about comicpacks/two-packs:
I usually want one of the figures but not the other.
Is it just my tastes, or does Hasbro purposely pair a more desirable figure with a less desirable one?
Starting to build a dio!

I don't know, it seems like they did that in a few cases.

they do it all the time. There are a few exceptions like the BH/MF and Noks packs but most of them have a desired figure with a lame repaint like:
of they later comic packs, I wish they would have paired the RNR and GH with each other. I chose to pass on them because I didn't want the lame repaints that they are with.

This seems to be the norm with the obvious exception of the Tomax/Xamot pack and to a lesser extent the Destro/IG pack. I really wanted a Wild Weasel, Copperhead, and Scrap Iron, but each of their sucky counterparts is still tied to their plastic prison.

I dunno, i really loved the Firefly/Stormshadow pack, both figures were a draw for me. And i would guess the Viper/IG pack did well, since it's basically an armybuilders dream. Then there is the lose/lose of Scarlett and Hawk.

Of course they do. It's called marketing. They know you'll shell out the extra money for Tunnel Rat or Shockwave so they put a crappy figure in there.
Why put two good figures when they can get you to pay more for 1 good and 1 crappy and make twice as much money by putting the 2 good figures in 2 packs?

Isn't it weird that it almost seems like they design crappy figures on purpose? I mean they had to realize that figures like the Shipwreck repaint and all those Cobra Commanders would not go over well with collectors.
