I really like the Torpedo.....Rock n Roll is also great looking but I never was a huge fan of Battle Suit CC. Even back in the day.....I mean the figure itself is great but I was never really a huge fan of that look for CC. Its also cool how Hasbro keeps cranking these babies out. I'm still praying for a Barbeque!!!!!

Glad to see Rock & Roll - he's one of my all time favorites and we're getting real close to the original 13. Hopefully, Steeler and Clutch aren't far behind.



Looks to me that ROck and ROll is sporting an MG42, not an M60. which is to say why would he be carrying a WWII era German machine gun?


I'll just add something someone else said on another board... it could be a MG3. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MG3

Torpedo looks great.

Cobra Commander looks good but I don't need yet another CC.

Rock N' Roll is less then stellar. I don't get Hasbro. Are they just going to make every character that has short sleeves have Duke's arms now just so they can avoid spending a little more money to actually sculpt some new arms? LAME!

I knew someone was going to bring that up, and you're exactly right. Basically an MG3 IS an MG42, but it's such a good design that the Germans are still using it, albeit somewhat modernized.

I'm loving that torpedo, RR looks cool to.. I'll probably pass on the CC, never really cared for him.. well, unless he has a removable helmet and there's a Fred head under it.

Love torpedo!!! CC battle armour is cool as well. Rock and roll seems to be missing something... maybe he will be better hi res, but love them.
This line is killer...

Well, look at it this way, the M2 Browning .50 cal is a WWII weapon as well. No one cared when Roadblock came with it! ;) Same thing, except it's a German weapon.

Eh, the outdated weapons don`t bother me. Just look at it as a personal preferance the characters have. The Joes always seemed to have weapons of their own choice so maybe R&R just liked that weapon the best. I have my own preferance with handguns so why not them?

They look cool, I really like Torpedo and CC, but R and R is cool too. Sometimes I think that the images that we see are not too thought out by marketing, such as R and R, his head just looks weird. CC is the main one that I am digin' and he has both open hands ;)

As for the carry onvers, that is cool with me, I only see a few SS and SE on the shelves where ever I go at least. Now bring on the B.A.T.S.

That wasn't my point - neither the MG3 or Browning M2 are outdated, because they're still in use!!!

The only weird one is Stalker's MP40...
