Did one of the Hasbro higher ups score a sweet deal and get his 2 year old child a deal to do the Card art for these figures? Man!
These figures are cool yes, but for god sakes spend the extra buck fifty and hire an artist that has vision outta both their eyes.

i agree that the wild bill and hiss driver art isn't up to snuff. and why the hell do i need another duke with a plastic american flag? why can't i have some other 25th anniversary figures that haven't been released umpteen times already? like tunnel rat, or low light, or ripcord, or techno-viper, or even the fridge?
well, no - not the fridge.
btw - who would be a good "real" person to cast as a joe (or cobra) in this day and age? i can't think of a one.

As "real" as Rocky Balboa or Sgt. Slaughter...? Tough call. Really tough one. I'd love a Bobby Lee Swagger [Mark Wahlberg character from "Shooter"] as a marksmanship instructor.
I don't have much a problem with Spirit other than his sitting ability. HISS Driver card art would've been better if they'd drawn his whole legs in - take attention off the accurately sized [though huge looking] helmet.

Hi Guys, Didn't you noticed it that the Viper has goggles on top of his helmet? That's cool.

I'm really liking Snake Eyes' night vision googles. Could help make some nice Splinter Cell Customs. I can't believe they haven't fixed Duke after all this time. I'll probably pass on him. Spirit's head sclupt is a bit pathetic. but he's got cool accessories. The Viper and Hisstank drive look pretty cool.

I like this entire wave a whole lot except for Duke. I would have liked to have seen a new and improved head sculpt used for him. Anyways, Snake Eyes, Wild Bill, the Viper & the HISS Driver all look like they will be some of the best figures yet in this line. Spirit looks fine to me, although he does look sad (it almost looks like the paint app is bad and is making him look odd and ruined a decent face sculpt).
So far, waves I thru III for 2008 have had some great looking figures in my opinion (wave IV is less impressive for sure, but still decent)!
