Others on my list:
The vipers-just way too many and until i see the movie and understand their role, i''ll stay away from them except the Green and red which are kinda snazzy,lol
Destro- hate the fluffy outfit and the mask. I'll wait for him in asuit and perhaps interchangeable head
Snakeeys-the head is too big. I dont even mind the mouth but that gargantuan head just accentuates everything.
armor duke- only one duke for me-ACCELORATOR
ponytail scarlet-meh figure. got the one desert one which is better.
Zartan-very plain figure and does nothing for Zartan character.
ANY FIG NOT in the movie-Not a fan of remaking the ARAH line since i never really collected them so why buy a fig that aint even in the movie.
ON THE FENCE:
PP-snake eyes. only thing that bugs me is that on this fig it doesnt have a mouth...uggh, make up your minds
Joe commandos-maybe is there are variations
desert ambush duke-When i first saw this fig i loved it, but then i saw accelorator duke. money and rationale affords me to have one
PP strom shadow. Love the maskless look, still might get it for shits and giggles.
Ripocrd(accelorator), Storm shadow, desrert ambush scarlet
Doctor-Kinda wish that was the final incarnation oc Commander
PP Baroness- nice lookin fig, and the outfits nice too.
Acc suit Duke

Gen. Hawk. Got 2. 2nd would be for custom fodder. Need his Pit version to be in UN camo pants.
Covergirl...impulse purchase. Wish her jaw wasn't so big.
Pit Commando. Best bang for the buck!
The Pit and Dragonhawk. New molds. Waiting for the Rhino to go on sale.

My "selective" ROC haul:
2 TRU Barbeques (will get little COBRA stickers to go on either shoulder and cover up the post office logo to make him a COBRA Firefighter...if cobrasticker.com will ever restock).
TRU Firefly...used as a different character, Invid, one of the Seven Deadly SINS (Specialists: Intelligence, Neutralization, Sabotage)
Baroness...glasses removed and used as a different character, Avaricia, another of the SINS.
Destro...head removed and replaced with a XAMOT head for an arctic XAMOT. Will do the same thing with the blue Destro for TOMAX.
Deep Six...headswap with an extra COBRA Flint trooper head to make a COBRA diver, need a COBRA sticker, though.
Night Raven...I really like this though everyone else hates it, I use the Air Viper as a specific character, Strato-Viper Commander "Quicksilver"
Steel Crusher...used as an Alley Viper vehicle only I call it the Blockbuster. Use the driver as a Motor-Viper.
Gunship...used as a flying submarine. Need to think of a name for it that I like.
Gunship Firefly...new character Sloth, another of the SINS.
Mole Pod...using this for the Baroness's drill vehicle from "Arise, Serpentor, Arise!" in a scene I have of her and two Vipers fighting Beachhead and Mainframe in Van Helsing's Castle Dracula playset. Not using the Terra-Viper.
5 Ice Vipers...my favorite ROC action figure so far.
Paris Pursuit Snake-Eyes, headswapped with a ROC Ice Viper, Deleted ROTJ Scene Luke Skywalker goggles and a Darth Vader helmet and used for Shogun, one of my Alley Vipers.
Paris Pursuit Snake Eyes's black Timber went on my Narnia shelf as one of the White Witch's evil Animals.
Eagerly anticipating the Crimson Hydra, the Para-Vipers, the Doctor (especially the white labcoat variation that I plan to use as Dr. Venom with a Revenge of the Sith Tarkin head) and the black-coated ones as COBRA lab techs, probably with a Flint in COBRA Disguise trooper head. Also want a couple of Mantis subs and the aforementioned blue Destro set.
Also plan to get a couple of Death Adders and Red Fang Ninjas.
And I'm going crazy on the Target sets:
2 Grand Slams (plan to put AVAC heads on them)
4 SNAKE Armors
4 Strato-Vipers with Jet Packs

I'm a selective buyer in any line LOL! But for this line all I have is the PP SE and PP SS along with Baroness and DA Scarlett. I also got the TRU Firefly and Scrap Iron w/ATV. I may pick up a few more here and there but by no means am I getting all the figs or army building. I think I may break and get some of those crimson vipers and neon green vipers to use as Cobra-La royal guards. Oh yeah almost forgot, I got me a dog Tag from Wal-mart.

All I bought has been in the 2 for 1 sale so that got me to purchase a lot of figs I wouldn't have otherwise. Anyway Here's what I've bought and why:
Snake Trax with Scrap Iron - Never saw 25th Scrap Iron in stores and I wanted a Ferret mold to customize.
Baroness- It was better than the only other Baroness I had been able to find in stores. And I liked the Briefcase.
Desert Duke - He looks good with Dusty.
TRU Barbeque- Making him into a 25th Airtight
Neo-Viper- Just looked cool. Going to display the as a special unit.
Viper Commando- Wanted a leader for the Neo vipers.
Zartan- Bought it because I wanted an MP. Had I known about the Law and ORder pack I wouldn't have gotten him. Hes a cool figure though.
Regular Scarlet- Going to use as custom fodder
Regular Heavy Duty- Using it as a modern version of the original Heavy Duty. Great figure.
TRU Firefly- Custom Fodder
Ice Viper- Wanted him to go with my Snow Serpents.
Deep Six- Wanted him to go with my TRU Chap Mei Attack Boat as the camo matches the boats. Plus he fills out the ranks of Joe Divers I have. Using him as a generic diver.
Ripcord- Fodder. Probably turning it into a modern Sci-fi. Only bought him because he was the last unique figure left at the store. Would have passed on it if he basically wasn't free.
Figures I still want but can't find:
Shipwreck- Want to go with the Chap Mei boat.
Helix- I want 2. One to be Helix. One to paint the hair Pink and customize into Zarrana.
Flash- Mainly for the Helmet.
Rex Lewis white coat- To customize.
Elite viper - Still can't find one.
Desert Scarlett- going to take the head put it on the other Scarlett body. Repaint the body into 25th Covergirl. Going to take the regular Scarlett head, put it on desert body and paint into Stealth Operations Shooter.
Stuff I've passed on:
Snake Eyes' and Storm Shadow's - I have too many of these guys already. I already have my favorite versions as well.
Cobra Commander- I have no use for it.
Covergirl- Really wanted this figure till I saw the horrible face sculpt. Going to make one of my own instead.
Reactive Armor figures - No real reason just don't have a need for them.
Crimson Neo viper - No room for Crimson Guard imitators.
Cobra Eel- I'll get the superior Target one instead.
Destro- Already have 25th version.

I'm buying what looks cool and that's the only stipulation behind my selections.
I've picked up:
2 PP SE
1 Crimson Neoviper
2 Pit Commandos
1 Pit(returned it because the figure had such a bad paint shop)
2 masked SS
2 reg SE
2 Heavy Dutys
I will be picking up more Pit Commandos, Dragonhawks/flies whatever, Rex/Doctors, Flashs and other cool items.
