These look great. That Storm Shadow is funky though. Almost looks like they are trying to base it off the original t-crotch Joe vs Cobra version but mixed up the hood with the mask. The mask should be red and the hood white. Storm Shadow with a red hood is just weird.

The Twins 10/10 I will by this set for sure....

The crimson guard and scarface....maybe

SE and SS cool but probably not...

I wonder what the price will be if not individually?

The twins were exactly as I expected...this line is going to be huge...especially when the movie comes out...

The sculpts on the twins are absolutely fantastic. It's how I imagine the originals looked... of course a quick reference against the real thing proves my instinct wrong. Perhaps if the oringinals looked this nice, I wouldn't have smashed them all when I was 12 years old.

I think the hood is intended to red because it suppose to be attatched to the cape. I don't know why they use the hooded one, though since the cloth cape already has a hood. could be a mess up or be different later, especially how the first 25th SS comicbook figure had the same color schemes for his weapons, but changed for the better in newer pics.

All 3 of these sets look AWESOME IMO!!! I can't believe that people are hating on the Snake-Eyes and Stormy pack too.......I'm usually against them re-packing Snake-Eyes all the time but they both look cool as hell. Snake-Eyes with the battle damage........C'mon someone has to admit these are cool..........Yeah, the colors on Storm Shadow are a little cheesy but that can be fixed with a little paint. I'm all over all 3 of these sets.



98% of the hate comes from seeing these two over and over and over and over and over and over. And over yet again.

Did they steal Storm Shadow's outfit from a Sith? If they had given us maskless Storm Shadow, they'd have a sure fire winner. But here? Meh.

It's the Fred Broca mug... and it looks fantastic! I wasn't sold on the Siegie pack until I saw that picture. Finally, no M.D. Bright red-head colorists f*ck-up, like the last comic pack. This is the real-deal Fred head! I'll be army building this one!

The twins are just a must-have. No one that collects 25th figures should be missing that one.

The Snake-Eyes Storm Shadow pack is interesting. I'll be buying it for the compound bow with sonic amplification gear, and giving it straight-away to Zartan. It'll also be awesome to finally have a Snake-Eyes figure with the Arashikage hexagram. Storm Shadow... not so much, but a lot of these two packs only have one figure going for them. Stormy, at least, I can switch out the lower arm on an extra 5-pack SS, so they're both flashing the hexagram...

The first wave was a real let-down, but a necessary evil. Hasbro's really coming through on their promise that the subsequent waves would be worth the pain of 5 comic-colored figures in one shot. Lookit, here we are at wave three, and not a single basic repaint in the bunch. Even the Cobra Officer seems like he's going to be Scarface, just without the proper name.

Was Zartan shown wearing that StormShadow outfit in one of the comics when he killed the Hard Master? Possibly a DD comic, it looks really familiar.

Pretty much, yeah. Zartan was wearing a ninja outfit (they all look alike) with a hooded cloak when he killed the Hard Master with a compound bow w/sound amplification. But Zartan never had the Arashikage hexagram on his arm, so the figure *is* of Storm Shadow, wearing an outfit very similar to Zartan's murder togs, using a compound bow Stormy would never need.

Apparently, Storm Shadow will wear the cloak in the comic included with the pack, then discard it before confronting Snake-Eyes.

That's cool. It shows that Storm Shadow did wear something like what Zartan wore as a disguise.

I never thought of Xamot & Tomax as that muscular in the arms, but who cares?
I should be punched in the head for complaining.
They look awesome!!

I apologize if it was posted already, but don't the twins' guns look like the weapons cobra troopers used to have in the cartoon? That was the first thing I thought of when I saw them - it's interesting, b/c I always loved the look of those guns and could never figure out why Hasbro didn't make them.

I'm honestly more excited about the comics than the figs. If they really do fit in well in the marvel timeline.

Se is great looking, but the stormy is iffy as can be. Why not an un hooded head, heck why not use an unmasked head. I love jvc v1 and this looks like simliar to that, but not correct. No matter i'll have a custom of him done soon.

I just never liked the twins design, so i'll want the comic and skip the figs. The cq looks much better with the broca head though, but i'm still not sure i'll go for it.

All three have new comics right?

Yup. Ace and Wild Weasel come with a reprint of Issue #115, but the other three are Hama-written originals. If you click the links to Hasbro's website, it gives a brief summary with each picture.

Wild Weasel and Snake Eyes look fantastic! I like Storm Shadow's bow, but hate "soft goods" when used as capes or robes.

I'll take those Twins off your hands. I could care less about the comics. @loll@

Finally some figures that do the Twins justice, and there's no business suits in sight. Thank You Hasbro.

What is that writing on the CG and Officer's chests?

I love the Twins and the CG.

I like Storm Shadows cape/cloak but that is about all I like from that one.
