NeoDragonKnight:
amazing! So excited for these.
steve2477:
These all look awesome.
Troynos:
The Beachhead is awesome.

Great figures, can't wait to have in hand.
BEAM:
Love the packaging. Between these and the new Star Wars Vintage cardbacks coming out later this year, Hasbro is putting out some awesome packaging.

I'll definitely be picking several of these figures up. Beachhead and Zartan are tops on the list.
89PILOT:
These are really cool figures!!!!!
Anyone want to be my Transatlantic buddy,who'd be willing to get their hands on these when they come out????

Oh aye - nearly forgot - Thanks Hasbro for not going to release these on this side of the pond!!!!

TORTURE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
C-GDSM 2487:
i like firefly / Beachhead great
cant wait till they come out on sale
rosales416:
yea they actually come with more accesories instead of oversized rocket luanchers
Zefram:
I like that mask Blai... err... Recondo comes with.
rip_cord:
man, after seeing these pics, i think i'm gonna pick up most of these guys - they look great!
JoeMama:
these are INSANE!!!
Who is the wayyy cool desert dude? joe or cobra? Looks SICK!!!!
Also, is that POC Recondo?
The detail is amazing on these!
Paint ap's, top notch!
Pure win, baby, pure win!!!

BEACHHEAD & FIREFLY = UNPRECEDENTED AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Troynos:
That's Dusty and Recondo.


Look at the detail on Recondo. Sat-Phone on his shoulder, darts on his wrist bracer.
Shipwreck:
ONly thing I don't like is the falling star Logo they put in this now. Should have left the eagle/star alone.
Huer-Ta:
There's not a single figure there I don't like. Is it me or does anyone else feel like there was a lot of love put into this line?
Troynos:
I agree HT.

You know, the 25th/ME guys look lacking now next to the PoC.

They really do. PoC is going to give me a lot of new definitive versions of characters, namely Beachhead and Firefly.

I have yet to find a real gripe about anything we've seen.
solid_strider:
I have liquid explosion in my pants. Very nice!

Adamantite:
Did they change the headsculpt on Beachhead? I remember him looking more menacing... maybe it's just the paint apps.
fireflyguy:
Oh, I'm gonna be so broke come 7/28!

These all look great. I will have multiples of several of these. I'm not usually a MOC collector, but some of these I'm going to keep MOC because they look so sharp.

Who is the figure in the very last picture? Is that Recondo? I'm not a Recondo fan, but I really like that figure as well!
solid_strider:
Recondo, I think.

I thought the same thing! It's an awesome figure regardless.

No one has mentioned that Snake Eyes, who looks like the best version of the character since the all black ME Wave 6 version.

They all look great.
Syn3sthesia:
So does that make that Night Viper part of the August 2010 line up?
Monkeywrench:
I will get the Zartan and a CC to keep carded

Maybe the face-tats make it look different enough to get away with it, or they got a better deal with Vosloo and it was cheaper to use it than make a new sculpt.
Steelgrave:
I'll be passing on most of these. They don't look that great. Just more of the same crap I already have. The only one that really stands out is the Jungle Viper. The others are pretty lame & boring. They should have stuck with the 25th/ME line. If I wanted a fashion show I would collect Barbie.
MWG:
I thought they were going to change the colors on Desert Zartan's face/hood to "classic" colors in addition to changing the headsculpt. But thank god if they are keeping the original intended appearance, since it looked a LOT better than the one at Toyfair.

+-MWG-+
Syn3sthesia:
I'm guessing Night Viper will be in another assortment at a later date.
Zefram:
Wow, so per case we have two Dukes, two SE, two Beach Head, and two SS, but only ONE ALLEY VIPER?!?!

Hasbro, proudly continuing the tradition of one epic fail for every two wins.

Thanks for info.
GI abe444:
These guys are just like ROC figures for me . I'll pick and choose the very few i want. CC,Jungle Duke,Recondo,Dusty,BeachHead, and Zartan.Those to me are the coolest.
ad1976:
Some great out of the box thinking here, especially the Jungle Viper. The Duke, not so much. Look too much like those guys from Contra. The Firefly looks like a straight-up terrorist. Good stuff overall.
anderson1939:
Now that's WICK'D awesome new joes , I can't wait !!!!

Finally, somebody says something I can agree with.
07GT500 COBRA:
One of the best looking GI Joe figure lineups of all-time!
Joecom:
I'm so going to be broke!

I agree
TEAM Z:
Beach-head is Awesome--Snake-eyes and timber is bad ass
I glad Hasbro went with the cartoon duke head.
Alley viper and jungle vipers are sick ---must army build these!
the-hunter:
All these figures are freakin' awesome. The whole wave is just sweet. Too bad that they will never see the light of day in retail here in The UK, looks like its BBTS for all my Joe needs.
Colder Soldier:
These are mostly cool. I even like the packaging. It's great the brick font is back and it's even gone platinum. I'm back to buying cases from BBTS. Recondo is the worst one IMO. His outfit looks like it makes no sense. Like a Spy Troops or VvV design. Hopefully he'll be better in hand.

I love the new "Star" logo especially compared to the lame-ass movie "Hawk" logo. The new Star logo feels like GIJoe and is the best designed yet.

Hopefully they don't make every other figure a Duke, SE, or SS. I'm already pissed at that W1 SS. That design is one of the best there but I wish it was someone else. It just needs to be a color other than white. I wanna troop-build it to be some sort of arab-ninja faction.

Anyone else notice Beachhead's name spelled incorrectly on his package? "Beachead"?
jdslater:
Really cannot believe how good Beachhead, Firefly and Dusty look!
Weezus:
these are without any doubt the greatest gijoe toys ever made!!!

i left my collection behind when i moved but i am definately picking these up regardless if i have room to display them or not.
gung-ho:
Not a big SW fan, but Dusty reminds me of princess lea disguised as a bounty hunter in jaba's palace.

Snow Job, SS and SE look cool, but I really don't need another one of those.

I've only recently become aware of Alley Vipers and have picked up a squad of ARAH style in blue. They are some of my favorite post '87 o-ring Cobras. Can't wait to get 3-5 of these!

Jungle Viper is unbelievably cool and I'm guessing will be nearly impossible to find at stores. I'll want at least 2 to use as snipers.

Zartan may replace 25th as the go to Nox leader if his head scarf stays on tightly (looks loose in the pics and I'm more of a player than displayer!)

Duke, Recondo, and Beach Head are all excellent! Been waiting for a Recondo update and this one is better than I thought. I hate Duke figures, but this one says "bad ass soldier" to me instead of "paper pushing weenie" that ALL previous Dukes look like. I'll have to give him a new code name. Beach Head and Res7Pak BH will go nicely with 25th version to make up a nice squad of Special Forces.

Firefly's head is awesome! Glad to get something different to distinguish him from the other ones. This is the best FF since V1.

I'm giddy like a schoolgirl.
Weezus:
this looks a whole lot like the predator.

vermillion21:
These look friggin awesome!
Snake Shadow09:
how long until the hasbro panel?
DrKain:
Oops, I posted in the wrong topic...

Anyway, except for the Alley Viper, these are easily passable. This line seems more like an off shoot to Venom vs Valor than anything else. Soon we'll be having cobra soldier hybrids with wolves and such.

The only other figure I'll buy in this line is if we get an accurate Cover Girl.
