Intersting. I'd be down for that shipwreck. Always wanted him in that look. Unfortunately from here on out it all depends on the price point.

I like them all. I'd have to troop build that officer. Hopefully, they'll make it to retail. Also, I'm not loving that cardback, but it's much better than the retaliation one imo.

Looks like these will be dollar/discount store repaints like the old VvV ones that hit years ago. I like all of them. So I will track them down if they make it out.

If that's true then I'm in.

EDIT: It IS true! Woo-Hoo! You can keep your $11 Joes, Target!

I'd buy them all.

the lack of accessories makes it look like they are discount store exclusives. But then again, they have full articulation, and we aren't even getting that in Hasbro's regular retail lines.

If we're talking like, $5 per figure, I'll buy them all on principle!

I'm pretty excited for these figures........what I'm not excited for is the hunt for these things. I rarely go into Dollar General and Family Dollar stores.......until I find them I'm going to be tempted to stop at every one I see. Theres a ton of those stores around......should be easy to find once they are out...but still. I don't care about the accessories that much....just because I have 2 huge bins full of extra weapons to outfit these guys.

I didn't have any trouble finding the VvV stuff so hopefully the same will be true for these.

I also don't mind them being low on weapons. I've got POC figures that can only hold about half the stuff they come with...plenty left over that the dollar store Joes can use.

Wait a minute isn't everything at Dollar General priced at 1 dollar or less?This can't be right,maybe they meant Family Dollar.

Like them all except for CC. Been wanting that SE and SS for some time, the trooper and Shipwreck are just a bonus. I'll bet these are in the $5 to $7 range. Hopefully they'll hit soon.

Dollar General has .00 at the end of all their prices. (1.00,2.00, 5.00, 20.00 I bought some of the other ones they sold there. Would not surprise me if they show up at 5 Below stores.

Hasbro recently released some Marvel Universe repaints to Family Dollar... well, there was no announcements, but that was the only store people found them in. However, they were just slight repaints of figures, not new figures like these are.

I'm shocked to hear no one bemoaning another Storm Shadow and Snake Eyes figure! In fact, now people seem to WANT them! Are they all spooked that another "Renegades SS" might happen if they do? :)

I may pass on the black CC. I've always prefered him in blue. I'll get black Cobra Officer and make him my Cobra sniper...a 3 3/4" version of the 12" Sideshow figure. I think I like the Grunt better then the TRU 3 pack version, and the SE and SS are growing on me.

This whole dollar store thing (between quit-worthy retail prices and iffy Retaliation figures) is rare good news!

"Just when we thought we were out, they pull us back in" by strands of register tape........yup I'm in.......these are badass, I agree maybe even better than some of the retaliation figs. Oh what mysteries lie in the mind of Hasbro's marketing dept? dollar store eethscluusiiives??? Amazon exclusives? next thing you know we'll be getting a USS Flagg butttt it'll only be available in German Walmarts that are in cities that end in the letter 3.........but yes these new joes look promising to customization and just the fact that they are in the 25th ann flavor is awesome, I was kinda sad when I picked up Airtight at the grocery store and realized that the long road to recovering my lost old (O-ring) Joes was nearly over........
