My favourite so far.

Apparently it's more of a blueish grey than teal, it just doesn't photograph that well. We'll see. It's certainly not a "must have" set like last year's, imo.

I like it. I think this is going to be a cool set. Just wish I knew who the joes are going to be.

Yeah, I'm still hurtin' over missin' out on that one. :(

I'm not liking this years set so far, and that's saying a LOT....considering the Headhunter Stormtroopers are a personal favorite, but my oh my how a color scheme sure can ruin a perfectly awesome mold. Perfect example here.

Whatever the color scheme is....

it looks like hell. @grumpy@

The guy in the helmet is probably gonna be Longarm.

There is a rumor on the Master Collectors site that the other guy is Low-Light, but for some reason he reminds me more of Recoil.

Here hoping we find out soon

the cobras should be darker, any ways, I'm in it for shock wave, and low light, i think recoil would be cool for this set but hes a long range recon patrol, nothing to due with D.E.F, i can see law or bulletproof, but why long arms?

The reason for Longarms is because of that domed helmet the guy in the pics is wearing. Also the only reason I mention Recoil is because of the green glasses.

I would prefer to see Law & Barricade with Shockwave

i looked at the pic again for a way closer look, it looks like low light, from the hat and the glasses, dose any one know how many joes are in this set - the cobras?

Long Arm, along with Muskrat (93), Barricade, Mace, and Law, were originally to be DEF, but the subline was canceled and they were absorbed into the Battle Corps line. The character with the domed helmet is very similar to Longarm, and probably is.

Still not sure about that third guy though. The blue around his eyes could be a visor, but that doesn't really narrow things down a lot where DEF is concerned.

man.. I really hate that color scheme.. and it will keep me from getting this set.

that blue is terrible.. and add GOLD all over ??? crap!


Sucks too.... because the Headhunters and Headhunter Stormtroopers are some of my favorites.. they are just so ugly. MC isn't supposed to be making figures that are far inferior to the originals.. I can get a squad of the originals for much cheaper.

I have always liked those figures but I am not real hot on the colors either. Still on the fence about this one.
