Yeah, but they still don't appear to bend 90 degrees which was always the REAL problem for most.

Yeah, and I figured it could still apply to the elbows (although they never bothered me nearly as much as the 'suicide wrists'), but I couldn't resist joshin' you a little about it. :)

Actually most of mine do. Bar the ones with Duke Arms the only ones I have problems with are Destro, Vipers and Serpentor. The rest have been fine so far.

after seein pics of the animated hood CC a month ago, I knew they would also update the helmet one. Didn't know they would do it so fast. Quite glad since the 25th anniversary version that has been out has a small head and the helmet isn't even the right shape


This animated helmet one has a larger head, which rocks.

Here's something I hadn't thought about before I made that last comment about buying the pack for the one figure - they are suggested to retail at 19.99, right? I guess really it's not so bad considering you do ge a decent DVD in the pack, which would probably go for 14.99 or more at like a Best Buy or something. That's if it's 19.99, anyway. If anyone knows the real price tag (those who have seen and /or bought them) are the ones who can say if it's a good deal or not.

Yes the 2 dvd pcks i have bought were 19.99. So i think this is an awsome deal you get a
dvd which would retail for $10
4 figures which would retail for $28
a vehicle which would retail for $7
a piece of the mass device.
So what if you only get one new figure, the dvd and the one figure make up for that cost. But you get some new accessories to play around with, that you can add to other figures.

Got to agree the chrome CC is Sweet. Love The Cobra Paratrooper. Alpine is Perfect. Duke is well the others make up for him.

OMG OMG OMG OMG O------M-------G!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D :D :D :D :D


Ok....so it's pretty much final, Hasbro $^&)*#@ RULES!!!

That DvD pack is quite possibly the COOLEST idea ever!

It does look like they used the opening for the G.I. Joe Animated movie as inspiration--Alpine is bad ass, same with the Cobra Soldier, lovin the sculpt on and colors on both of these figures...

...but the REAL Gems are Cobra Commander with that beautiful BEEEEAUTIFUL brand spankin' new head sculpt WITH chrome battle helment face plate...are you kiddin' me? Amazing! And that Duke kicks major leagues of ass compared to the asstastic one we got in the 1st round....Wave 1 Duke's head looks like garbage and so do his arms....THIS Duke however is more like the animated version and has a cool battle cry face sculpt goin' on there....NOT to mention Cobra Commander has his trusty jet-pack and bomb.

Honestly I'm so happy with this pack it's unreal...and to think just a few days ago I was chirping off about how Hasbro needs to make a decent head sculpt on CC LoL! :)

Duke, Cobra Trooper, and CC again? Geez, aside from SE these are the most over-used molds of the line. I love Hasbro's new formula of packaging a ton of repainted junk with an original figure. I'm just glad I don't want Short-Fuze (although I feel bad for anyone who has to drop 50 bucks just to get him). On the brightside, Duke's corrected arms will be nice once I get rid of the crappy head. Also, I'll be getting the claw without having buy that gawd-awful, red cobra trooper. Oh, and of course there's alpine.

Wow, that Cobra Commander looks awesome! I'm still pretty happy with my TRU 3-pack CC so I'm sure he'll do for now, but the chrome face and bigger head would be a definite improvement-- unless... That new helmet looks a little big to me, like maybe it can come off, too. I don't really have a problem with that, per se, Hasbro's made plenty of cool figures with removable masks from Darth Vader to The new Armored CC. I'm just worried about what's under the mask, this being a Cartoon Movie Commander. Do you think, maybe, just maybe... ONCCE-WASSS-A-MAAANN!!! LOL

And Duke's face might work with the vibrant 'toon colors... Don't know for sure, I'll hold off jugment till I see these guys in the store. Really, I'm just paying $20 for the DVD's like I would on Ebay for the old Kid Rhino ones, the figures are a bonus to me, so I can't gripe. I've seen the first two packs at Target, and even the figures that I wasn't crazy about at first have superior paint jobs to their previous releases.

I said the same thing lol. Thing is, if I recall correctly, this was suposed to be a DVD of the movie, but they changed it to "best of" episodes for some reason. Hence screaming Duke and CC's chrome faceplate (as well as the bomb he places at the statue).

The real pisser is going to be yes, we will buy all these sets for the unique figs (Short-Fuze, Quick Kick, Dusty, and Alpine), then later on Hasbro will release them single carded. It's bound to happen, and yet we'll all fall for it anyway, and kick ourselves for it later! (I know I'm probably going to...)



Oh yeah. No question about it.


Then either don't buy the single card or hang on to your receipts and packaging and return the multi packs later. I understand the reason why toy companies do multi packs filled with repaints and ONE new figure. It really is marketing genious but it pisses me of too. If you aren't afraid to return stuff, you don't have to play in to their game.


Bear in mind though, there is a high possiblity that, if they do singles, they will be repaints. And, by that, I mean they will not have "correct" colors. Thus, if you want to get Alpine looking like Alpine, you have to get the pack. And then, if you want Alipine dressed in desert colors, get the single.

That Duke makes the prior jetpack single-carded release seem kinda redundant, never mind the fact that the colors on this new one are more toon accurate. *sigh* I'd love to see them release this Cobra Commander as a single though. If so I might be tempted to buy one...

lol Well if Hasbro hears this again and again they may figure out that we're catching on, just like with the duke arms and Major Bludd ^_^ .

I might take that first jetpack Duke and do a headswap with this one. I can throw that jetpack ont Grand-Slam now too. I did like the colors on that first one though. I can always use that first comic pack Duke head though, I have no other use for him.

The guy at the Hasbro booth told me that Duke is not the final production one, and he actually WILL HAVE DUKE ARMS. (But he will be the last one). You can't believe everything you see in the cases. :(
