I think it's a crime that the para-viper basically uses Ripcords old card-art. ;)

meh to them all.

why is the wraith's p90 so freaking big? it looks like its the same size as the stargate figure's p90s. they could have done a much better job on this figure.

that vest on the bazooka trooper should be on a saw viper... why does a bazooka trooper need so many ammo pouches when his only gun is his pistol? pass

para viper? really? to much stuff to many bright colors. pass

mutt and junkyard i might pick up

duke! new arms better accessories, but sadly its tiger force. pass for me.

croc master. perfect example of how crappy these figures look without some type of equipment. torso looks weird. legs look funky. not a character i liked in the first place. pass

Um.. really? he's in a different angle, his hands are different, the only thing that looks similar is they're both jumping out of a plane.. how else are they supposed to feature his card art?


I personally love the whole wave.. can't wait to get them, I'll get 2 para-vipers and hang them from the ceiling or top of my display with my powerteam parachutes. Wraith, I hope can find the clear one, man.. variants suck.. Duke, I've always liked TF Duke better, so with the fixed arms, that's a plus, Mutt, one of my favs as a kid.. so I can't complain, and normally I'm not getting all the troopers, but I actually like that Bazooka trooper, too cool. Crockmaster looks awesome and can't wait to get an extra for custom fodder, he looks.. HUGE!!!

Another win if you ask me, if the Bat and Bazooka wasn't so cool, I'd say this is my fav wave to date.. I'll have to wiat to see them in hand to actually decide on that one.

I agree, I think this wave looks awesome. Yes, I do think that wraith's weapon looks ridiculous, but I planned on displaying him with out it anyway, so I don't care.

The only figure I'm not crazy about is the Para-Viper, but that's just me.

I think they look pretty good. I'm most interested in the Croc Master, Mutt & Junkyard figures.

Duke is still just Duke, I'm not a TF fan, and the old arms have RUINED so much potential for so MANY other figures, I'm almost indifferent to them fixing the fricken things NOW, for a crappy TF version of him. <_<

Wraith is interesting and I like it. It's something new, and I'm always about inserting in some newer stuff with the old.

The other 2 are "meh" for me though. The anti-armor Cobra is ok I guess, but that Para Viper abomination is just one UGLY, discombobulated, over accessorized, gruesomely colored, mongolian cluster-f@#% of a piece of plastic in a G.I.Joe box. @haha@

4 out of 6 get my thumbs up though, so not a bad wave at all!

I'd say that quality-wise, this looks to be by far the best wave yet, which is kind of bittersweet in a way. A lot of classic characters have already come out in earlier waves where Hasbro was still working the kinks out of the new Modern Era line. Tiger Force has given a second chance to screwed-over Joes like Duke and Flint, but what about Gung Ho? If Snake-Eyes could talk, he wouldn't be able to stop laughing...

Man...I may have to pick these up! I wasn't too keen on new characters like the Cobra Para-Trooper and the Anti-Armor Cobra Trooper, but these look really great. And I absolutely love that Tiger Force Duke. I love those fixed arms.

Sheesh...if I'm not careful, I may end up collecting Joes again... (lol)

A great wave, Bazooka and HALO toopers are cool, Mutt and Crock are incredible updates of old favs, and I always liked Wraith from DDP.

The only one I'll probably pass on it TF Duke - I found that the arm articulation is fixable and the fore-arm cut never bothered me.

Besides Croc Master and Mutt and Junkyard, I'm not sure how crazy about this wave I am. One thing I am excited about is the card art. It has a real professional look to it, is reminiscent of the old school, and I'm glad it doesn't have a more comicy look to it the way Spy Troops and VvV did.

CROC MASTER!!! look at the arms look at that evil head. Look at the Croc. Gonna get 2 one for Misb.

MUTT and JunkYARD gonna get 2

Im a Cobra Junkie but Not as excited about these.

-Para Trooper looks bizzare will buy 1

-Anti armor in light Cobra blue with fish net helmet. Not best combination. Obviosly done to match light colored Cobra Commander. But The dark blue looks better. Will buy 1. Will not open.

Duke. Please not another useless Duke.

Overall 25th figures are brilliant.

No, this is not another useless Duke. This is a great Duke, pretty much improved in every way with even cooler colors than every Duke except possibly the first one in the 5 Pack who didn't even have an accurate paint job. If you bought any Duke since the first one, you have nobody to blame but your self since they were all cheap-looking multi-packs with even uglier and more disposable figures like Play-do CC and a store-exclusive Franken-Hawk. Except for the one with a Flag and a jet pack that you could use with anybody. So there-- no reason to get the others, which is why they glut the shelves as peg-warmers. Duke isn't like CC or Snake-Eyes, he's only really had one figure released several times to allow everybody a shot at getting him, with slight color variations that shouldn't matter to anybody. And it sucked! Now at last I can get a GOOD figure of my favorite MASS Device Era Bad-ass in true RAH colors with the right gun, binoculars, and a freaking non-Gung Ho backpack! This, like back in 1988, will be my default Duke and he willl be totally going out with Pilot Scarlett and it will be a GLORIOUS day to be a Joe fan!

But go ahead, enjoy your goofy, cowled Croc Master! How's he doing these days anyways? Oh, that's right-- he's dead! Because he was the only guy besides Dr. Manbender dumb enough to back Serpentor during the Cobra Island Civil War. What a Jack-ass!

What color is that TF Duke's hair? It's not a big deal but I am just really curious to find out if it is blonde or not.

I like these new Cobra troops even the guys with upcoming vehicles and multi packs. I wish there was things like this back in the RAH line.

After seeing improvements on the TF Flint and Duke I am hoping they make a TF Roadblock. And actually put out these fixed figures as the regular non-TF's too.

Blond just like the card-art, as can be seen in yojoe.com's pics of the Joecon! At last a blond TF Duke-- sweet Aryan goodness (though technically Nazis were dumbasses and the 'Aryans' look like Persians which is where the name Iran comes from...)! No more of Hawk's Just For Men hair dye for this Special Missions Top Kick!

Just thought I'd add a link to the JoeCon pics at Yojoe.com that show the upcoming Tiger Force Duke with classic blonde hair (other sites' pics don't give a clear look under the tan helmet). Those pics can be found here. The new figure doesn't resemble the old one so much as the original card artwork.
