Wow, these look great! I am so happy they toned down the gold on the Snake-Eyes. That was eating me up how bad it looked. I actually think the Crimson Guard may be the worst of the bunch and that's too bad cause he's my favorite Cobra sodier. I guess I should wait till they are in my hands to pass judgement though.

Darn it I added my opinion on the pictures in the other wave 5 thread. I guess I was just a little faster than the news.

 

I dont like the CG's as much now as i did in the con pictures??

I'm with TM.

I am not liking the CG at all. What happend to his shotgun? Why is his eye slit so curved? Why is he cross dressing with high heel lady's boots?

Then why are there so many revolvers all of a sudden? Couldn't Destro have his signature gun in gold?

Eh, they look ok to me. I`ll probably just buy 2 of them though. Destro really has me pumped, his V1 figure sucked sooooo bad that i`m 100% happy with this version! Great figure with lots of custom potential! Snow Job.......well, never really cared about the character but the figure does look good.

Dude what are you talking about? CG doesn't have high healed boots. That gun he has is freakin fantastic. And the IG destro didn't even come with a gun. Sounds like you are nitpicking just to nitpick

I like them all except for the CG, the helmet looks awful.

Well, all those that don't care for the CG, feel free to send them my way. I'm sure i could give them a good home. I'll pick up as many as I can find along with IG Destro. Don't really care too much about Snowjob. I might get him if I see him, but I won't go out of my way to track him down.

Not to mention the CG never had a shotgun that is a great representation of CG original gun.

These do look great and I'm looking forward to them. I don't see much improvement in the elbow range of motion in these but hopefully Hasbro is working on that for future waves.

 

So what is the deal with this Destro outfit anyway? Is that one from the first box set his leisure wear and this is pirate costume party suit?

I can see the point that silver highlights on the CG mask might make a good looking figure even better, but by no means do I think it looks bad as is. I held the figure in my hand and got a good up close look at it at JoeCon and I have no problem saying without a doubt in my mind it's a very awsome figure, and can't wait to get it, I plan to get at least two. I think we will be getting a comic pack in wave 3 with Crimson Guards of some type as well based on the comic art they showed at Joe Con. I just hope there are some Crimson Guard Commander twins for the 25th Anniversary line in the works in the near future as well.

Yes, yes, and yes. Couldn't agree with you more. I can't wait for the Twins, and as many CGs as Hasbro wants to put out.

These are all pretty cool. I don't understand why Snake Eyes has three (that I could see) spots of gold paint on him, though. I think he should be entirely black. The Crimson Guard looks slightly different for some reason from the Con pics, but it still looks good. I'm looking forward to Flash, as I think he'll be pretty sweet based on these pictures.

The first one was his original uniform, and this is what he wore once he created/became the leader of the Iron Grenadiers. You can't wear the same uniform for two different things (like Storm Shadow changing his outfit when he became a good guy, and then when he was leader of the Ninja Force). It's the law.

I think these figures look awesome, I'll definitely be getting a couple of those CGs. Snow Job and Destro look spectacular and Snake Eyes is a nice little repaint although I'm not 100% on getting him yet, now I'm ready for more pics of Flash

I think his boots are way too high. They should end around the middle of the shin. His helmet is also too longish.

Of course the IG Destro didn't come with a gun. It was molded onto his thighs. I was just saying since Destro is an arms dealer wouldn't he be carrying his own brand?

 

Not to mention the CG never had a shotgun that is a great representation of CG original gun.

 

This was also molded onto his thighs on the original. It was a sawed off shotgun.

Sure I am nitpicking the guns. Those can easily be replaced. However the proportions of the CG's head & boots look very off from the originals. Maybe they will look better up close in person. Then again I could wait for the rumored Fred/CC comic pack. Hopefully that one will have a removable helmet that isn't oversized like the last TRU CG set.
