I don't think we've seen these out of box photos before... My apologies if these are old or if this should be merged with the other threads showing Hasbro's official photos. I didn't want them to get lost stuck at the end of that thread, though...

What jumps out to me is the back photo of the Alley Viper... I didn't see the baton that was shown as an accessory in early photos in Hasbro's pics. Looking behind his shield, it looks like there are clips to hold the baton there! If that's right, that's pure win in my book. Zap is still suicidal though...

http://www.actoys.net/bbs/read.php?tid-358621.html
http://www.actoys.net/bbs/read.php?tid-358609.html

edit: whoa- I just noticed the Alley viper Baton is sitting at Mindbender's feet in the first thread... So, I guess this confirms it'll be in the 7 pack. Maybe I'm the only one obsessed with this accessory; I just think it's a great urban nod...
RATFINK:
hrmm wonder why redstar was in there?
machiwoomiapoo:
Super Sweet!
alexan2dros:
they look cool,,.. but where did they found them??????? why we cannt?
Stygian:
Fantastic! Thanks for sharing the link to the pics.

Dunno... it does look like there is a "HM" on his left breast pocket, so I'm guessing this is a Hasbro Master prototype photo he threw in...
Syn3sthesia:
They need to take this Alley Viper and just slap it on single cards and increase production.
arashikage tat:
very very cool
Monkeywrench:
I can't wait
Steel Brigade:
That's very cool about the Alley Viper.
Also, I have yet to see any pics show where you put the other end of Altitude's masks hose-plug.
I notice the Starto-Viper actually SAYS "Strato-Viper" on the stand here instead of "Air-Viper."

I have that Red Star coming to me soon in the mail... ^_^
MrClean:
I noticed the art for Chuckles is him in the gray shirt, like the 2nd one floating on ebay. Wonder what's up with that paint scheme. early change, or second release?

I believe we were suppose to get night force chuckles originally, then they switched it with the original chuckles probably because so many people complained about his shirt color.
jjk1120:
These look all but done.

When are we pre-ordering these things?
arashikage tat:
I really do love just about every fig in these packs and I was probably most excited for Mindbender, but why did they mesh his suspenders into one strip? That looks kinda stupid IMO
I wish they would have left it the way they originally showed him

I don't think they are meshed into one, just uncrisscrossed the straps. He should look the suspender wearing mindbender we all know and love after that...
emoral78:
Dammit!! That Hit n Run figure is looking better and better. I like the original Outback but I guess this one will do although he looks like Chuck Norris. The rest of the figures are badass. I can't freaking wait anymore. Dammit!!
COBRACOLLECTOR:
Range viper looks sickkkkk
G.I.Eddie:
is Zap commiting suicide AGAIN?!

That's what I initially thought as well, that maybe they're just crisscrossed and I'm still hoping that's the case, but then my girl looked at it and she was like 'I think it's meshed together" then I kept looking at it again and was thinking maybe she's right? She better not be...haha
Vulcan Raven:
can't wait, can't wait!!
Gamble:
Dr. Mindbender isn't looking on par with the rest. His arms and chest are very sketch.

The Strato Viper looks outstanding though.
xhairs:
cant wait to get these sets. and im glad they are not coming out till july as i can save some cash till then. as i need a couple of the cobra pack.
Viper Patrol:
I don't like that they are renaming Ripcord to SPC. Altitude. That's just stupid. I do like the new artwork for figures that never had artwork before, I'm a little disappointed with the fact they changed some of the classic character artwork, like Recondo and Outback. I can live with that though. Dr. Mindbender's artwork is right on the money.
dmarrese:
I only want Zap and I would have preferred to get him on a single card, which is why these 7 packs frustrate me. I'm not going to buy it just for one figure even though the rest are pretty cool. Just not for me. I really hope Hasbro releases these characters individually on 25th style cards eventually.
lucienmindthump:
The Cobra pack is executed so much better than the Joe pack. I just don't get it. If Hasbro doesn't single pack the Alley Vipers, and even Range Vipers, LAMPRAYS, and Strato-Vipers they will be missing out on a big opertunity.
~Synder Corps.~:
It looks like there's pegs inside the Alley Viper's shield to store the baton

Speaking of Lampreys. I would want to see a sonic figthers version. Range Viper could be repainted in the "rock viper" scheme, and alley vipers could be black/white/grey urban camo colors.
alexan2dros:
lampreys is one character or is army like alley viper???

They are an advanced eel more or less. They do demolitions. So I would have to say army builder.

You always live on the edge.

I'm getting crazy, I'm buying 2 Alley Vipers, I know right? I have to have an extra one for my work desk.

It's a must.
tkprime:
I know hasbro originally said these 7 packs were due at fall, but maybe we're getting them sooner?
Snow Job:
Non-use of the original card art(or updated versions of the originals) FTL. Except Ripcord...which looks like it is.

And is Zap holding his bazooka backwards in the box art? Kind've looks like he is.

Sorry if that has already been mentioned.

for costum?? i think it ll be better if theu made 7 packs for each.. 7alley vipers 7 range vipers and and.....
Nemesis*Prime:
Can't say how much I'm looking forward to army building the COBRA set. The word awesome just doesn't do enough justice to this set. If this is really the end of the Modern Era line (which I hope it isn't) then it's really going out with a bang.

On a side note I really like Degeneration's choice of flat surfaces for displaying his figures.
Snake Eyes-Joe Ninja:
For the love of god, quick teasing us and release these things already!!!

For cobra circus freaks at the dreamhouse.

But I love the box art. Especially the Lamprey. Which is weird, I only want one of the CI ones. I have 5 of the "Bakula" Lampreys. Well not yet, but they are coming.

I think the Bakula ones are superior to the CI packs due to the removable helmets. Like the eel, Lampreys should have removable helmets.

But I still can't figure out why the Bakula one is just some dude.
Fierce Krypton:
Why did they give chuckles gimp hands? why???!?!?!?!

That BAT is awesome, hope I can find it loose on eBay for a reasonable price eventually :o

I just now noticed that. WTF were they thinking? He can't hold a damn thing with those hands.
Mandingo Rex:
So are Mindbender's webgear and the Night Creeper's headpiece really that tough to fit on right?

In every picture so far, they've just looked bad. The NC's headgear should fit down lower, to the bottom of that chrome dome instead of sitting mid-way down.

Also, Mindbender's suspenders should be separated, but in almost every recent shot, they seem to be warped and touching. What is the deal?

Either every person photographing these doesn't know how to fit them on right or position them properly, or they really are messed up from the factory and do not fit well.

I'm getting to the point that I don't believe it's incompetence anymore in the photography/posing, and just ill-fitting gear. Can anyone clarify if they will fit on properly, or are people just putting these on wrong?
zenfakor:
Very nice.

Why does Night Creeper have a removable head dress in the first place?
Dawg99:
thanx for the pics they look great

I'm glad it's at least plastic "cloth" and not real cloth, which always looks terrible.

Iif they'd used that mold instead of the crappy cloth headwrap for Dusty from the start (modded so the goggles were attached, instead of the thick band), he would have been almost perfect from the factory.

If anything, they should have made him have a Snake Eyes-like head underneath a removable helmet that had the wrap molded onto it, instead of it being uselessly removable like the Viper goggles (which I glued in place, because they won't stay on otherwise).

No idea why that wrap part is removable, but if it would just fit right, it'd be alright. Every pic so far makes it look like it sits waaaay too high though.
