If you read the actual item review towards the bottom, it says SE,SS, CC and Roadblock
Fire_Fly:
ordered 2
CG23:

Is this the same Cobra Commander that was going for $200 something dollars on EBay recently?

From the looks of it

poddie:
As bad as I want these YESTERDAY, I'm going ot hold off a bit. That price is crap, and pricing on Amazon fluctuates a lot.

And given that they no longer have the pricing guarantee they used to, I think it may pay to wait for them to wake up and price these right. $25 would be about right, $30 would be doable, but $40 is more money than buying 4 separate figures which is crazy.

It's also really strange that the pictures don't seem to be official shots (in fact, they look like the same "spy" shots that have been floating around the last week). I'm thinking these are preliminary listings. EDIT: I see, those pics are customer submitted... Amazon hasn't listed any yet.

I think that the pics are actually credited to a person in Chicago... not "official" Hasbro pics. Also, that packaging is different than what we've seen previously posted here on the Tank (look in the 2012 archive)
Superjoe74:
I got the Renegades pack for the Red Ninja Viper but, I even though I have a Renny Storm Shadow I want to see the variant.

As regards the black deco Retaliation Cobra Commander, yes, that is the same figure that sold on Ebay for around $200 a short time ago.
cmderinchief:
Done, see you later this week! :-)
Trigue:
The price is..very high. Ordered one of each, I was tempted to wait but last time I waited on something I completely missed it and had to pay crazy ebay prices for it.

I'd almost get a 2nd Retailation set and see if I can find someone on Ebay to buy a black cobra commander and pay for this years con set lol

The poor guy that bought black CC on ebay, he has to be face palming about now.
CobraCrimson:
Want both of these but no way in hell am I paying $40 a piece for them!
KuuKuuSon:
I was expecting a little more of a "deal" but $10 a fig is the going rate for the movie line.
ChaplainAsst:
What is sad is not too long ago we complained about the price of the 7 packs from BBTS as being too high at $45 each (if you bought the two packs together - $50 separate). That was 7 figures that were pretty unique! Now, we are getting 4 figures for nearly the same price - granted, free shipping but still. I went ahead and ordered the Renegades set only because it looks pretty good and I don't want to regret not getting it later. The Retaliation set just doesn't have enough in it to justify spending $40 - the Black CC is neat but not that great!
MJjoe4life:
I ordered a couple of each set.
EduardimusPrime:
NEAT-O! Ordered one of each set.
kennywr22:
Ordered 2 renegades and 1 retaliation. Can't wait. 10 bucks a figure isn't bad. That's pretty much a going rate and these are exclusives.
neapolitan joe:
Yo joe!
Starfighter:
Many thanks. I had order just the Renegades set. I have decided to no longer collect duplicate/repraints unless they are Cobra army builders. Way too many Snake Eyes, Duke, Storm Shadow, Cobra Commander, Destro, Firefly, Baroness & Zartan characters in my collection.
MeLikeJinx:
Whoa. 40 bucks. Probably better off just buying Renegades SS for that much on ebay.
Fast_Draw:
Eh, I ordered the Renegades pack. It says I should have it by Friday or Saturday. I have no interest in the movie figures this time around.
qwe:
$40....
let the gouging begin.....
cobracobra:
Yes not interested price too high for a bunch of Dukes and Snake Eyes. When will they learn! They could of sold out with a 4 pack of Jungle Bats or POC green shirts updates or anything with value to someone who has collected the line in the last 6 months.
But no, more repacks of shelf warmers in kinda elaborate gift boxes.
Reminds me of Star Wars exclusives.
KingStalin:
Good lord I hate the price but it's still about 9.99 a figure which is what the line looks to be from now on.

I had to get this as love me some Renegades and the Retaliation 4 pack covers most of the initial figures I want.

Honestly I think I'll be waiting for Ross/TJ Maxx to get the movie line, just too expensive.
dragon:
bought them both like cobra commander in black than version 10.00 figure is fair price almost as much i find them at some store locations where i live
fireflyguy:
While $40 isn't terrible, neither set has enough to draw me in. I'm sorta tempted for that black CC in the Retal. set. Does anyone know --- is it a straight-up repaint of the blue one coming in wave 1? I'm gonna hold off on these because there's nothing that would kill me if I didn't get it.
sparhawk:
80 bucks, well spent imho.
07GT500 COBRA:
I'll take a chance and wait since I just got a Renegades SS. This is money I'll save for the con.
sbartek1974:
In my opinion, the price could be shipping included and that's why it is a bit pricey. So they up the price so they can say "free shipping" to attract buyers.

This is a good point. And we all know that with gas prices and the USPS sucking and all, shipping gets more expensive all the time.
WVMojo:
I want both of those but not at $10 per figure.

I seem to remember Hasbro saying they realized the price point on the RoC figures wasn't right and now these Retaliation figs are even more. Maybe I misunderstood and they thought they sold the RoC figures for too little...

That's pretty much how I feel.

Uggh. I know I'm going to give in and get the Renegades set. I just hate going into these so blind. We have one crappy photo of the figs, can barely see SE in it, we don't know what's up with legs on some figs, and Duke's crotch looks to be a different color than his legs. Makes me a little nervous, especially at that price.
seanbratton:
I went ahead and ordered. I figure if I'm going to get them at some point, might as well pick them up now.
BEAM:
I ordered the Renegades pack and passed on the Retaliation one.

I'm fine with $40 shipped for the Renegades pack. Based on the photos, it's not just 4 straight up repacks but figures with reused parts. Duke has Ren Cobra Trooper legs, Snake Eyes has a trench coat, I'm not sure where SS/Red Ninjas parts come from but it's not Ren Storm Shadow repack.

Out of everything I've seen for Retaliation, this set is the only thing I'll order. Everything else will be judged on seeing it in person, but based on the photos, I'll be passing on a lot of stuff.

But keep in mind, three of the four I doubt you will see in retail.
MFJayman:
K ordered 1 Renegades pack. God I hope these are quality figures.

Now I think I can sit tight and wait for Retaliation wvs 4 & 5 before buying anything else. I might even skip that Joe Trooper. Bring on the Night Viper!
kennywr22:
While its true the figures are a little more for retaliation, the price point for vehicles is defintely lower. I think the vehicles were the main thing they meant when lowering prices. I mean you can get that hisstank or plane for 19.99 with a figure( I know the figures suck but not for a kid). Parents see these vehicles as a good deal really. You can get a motorcycle with figure for 12.99. These are good prices. I'm pretty sure we will see sales for the figures as well so let's not get so crazy negative just yet.
9deadjoes:
these will be over priced on ebay....40.00 equals 100 easy...just dumb prices
46 Zone:
I pulled the trigger on both. Why not. I want to see what the Ninja Viper looks like.
polyphenus:
In for a Renegades pack. Not wild about the same Roadblock hand so I passed on the movie figures.
Deftones1982:
Very expensive. Pass
kingphilbert:
I still need to see better pics of the figures. Gah! I really want to know what's up with the Renegades figures before pulling the trigger on it. Why no official pics?

Yeah, I need better pictures of the figures and pictures of the accessories before I buy them.
Blot:
Ordered - and the shipping to the UK (if you go for the cheapest option) is only 6.99!

They take an 11 handling 'deposit' to cover any import costs that might arise, but state that they re-emburse anything that isn't spent. That's the cheapest I've bought Joes in ages!
Squibbles:
Are these really pre orders they look like they are ready to ship. I actually think the box art is better then the new movie figs comn out.

Does anyone remember how long it took the amazon unicron to sell out? Might give us an idea on these guys.
"SR":
I don't really follow transformer exclusives, did it sell out fast? or not at all?
rglass2:
Ordered mine...good thing I've been saving up in my Joe funds account.
