I see the complaints and they are all valid. I've felt the same a little but I really don't like the weapons that came with most of them anyway. Also I don't like the alley vipers back pack at all. So I don't put it on him.To me the whole set just feels rushed and not well planed out. But I'm still happy with it. I finally have all 13 joes and all the cobra figures I want. Anything else I pick up is resolute or stuff to make customs. So I really don't have a horse in this race anymore. To me it was money well spent.

Personally, I thought all 7 cobra figures were uber awesome, the joes were pretty cool as well (for being joes) I did especially like Chuckles, he looks like a total playboy.

Disappointment, the fact that Alley Vipers are so expensive to army build :(

the cobra pack is great except for the lame mindbender legs. also the headgear is wacky on the nightcreeper.

I have a hard time with some of the complaints about the Cobra pack. Expecting to get all of the weapons the originals had is a little unrealistic based on what we have experienced in the modern era for the last 2 years...in some instances they get the same weapon, but often something different...why would the 7-packs be any different?
The hands are a bit too open on a few of the figs, and while that is a valid gripe, it is certainly not near enough to sour my opinion of the overall work. Take for example the Alley Viper...take off his vest and you will see he has the blue camo apps underneath, unlike RoC Desert Ambush Duke, who's shirt only has camo sleeves.
Range Viper is awesome, doesn't come with the original backpack, but the one he does come with is far more realistic for the type of trooper he is. He comes with the original grenade launcher and TR's machine gun which compliments his bandolier. The night creeper is cool as well with his updated crossbow. HIs head wrap sits a bit high, but with a little effort can be slid all the way down to his visor.
Mindbender is a bit weak, but now we have a Mindbender...better than no Mindbender at all, especially for those who don't customize. Strato Viper is well, Strato Viper and is pretty well done ecxept for his inability to look down. The BAT gave me a damaged head and chest plate to put on my single card...now I have a worn battle damaged BAT and a nice shiney new one. The Lamprey is also very-win in my opinion.
I didn't get the Joe pack, so I can't comment on that, but whatever minor flaws the Cobra pack has, they by no means lessen the value or the satisfaction I get from these figs.
I'm kind of interested in why some are disappointed as the quality surpasses many of the single cards we have received, and we were given some characters that I never expected when the line was first introduced.
