Not bad..not bad.

 

I don't know why I'm so indifferent to the Cobra Viper mold being used for a Crimson set, but I am. This is FAR FAR better than the first CST convention set though. :)

I hear ya VH... The more I see this set, the more I am tempting to order it. I have the original set and this set looks way better and was extra's they added to the Baroness and the Vipers are a nice touch...

@deer@ Hmm,

 

I logged in just to see if there was any word on a convention set, and I'm kinda dissappointed that they're going to rehash the first con-set with full 25th molds, which leaves me with 2 concerns:

 

1. Are they going to just repeat the past 6 years convention sets redone with 25th molds? (which to me would be more than uncreative.)

 

2. Are they going to stop using RAH molds altogether now? (I like some of the new 25th accessories more than I do the figures, with only a few exceptions {like the BAT and the H.O.H. Baroness, which I admit both are pretty kick-ass figures}, but I like seeing new ideas for the classic molds.)

 

Anyone got info from on the inside?

1. Naaahhh... They just did this because the original Crimson Strike Team set was/is so popular. The Ebay prices for that thing were insane (but have dropped a little I think since this news came out).

 

2. That is unfortunately a bit more difficult to answer... I hope not!

HAVE YOU SEEN THE PRICES?!?!? $280.00 FROM THE GIJOE FAN SITE. I THINK THE FIGURES COME EQUIPED WITH GOLD COIN STANDS.

 

It's an exclusive convention set limited to 500... Of course it will cost more and lose the caps lock...

The Baroness I will grab some how but the Viper sucks...... its a bad thing that the classic Viper lost its real legs and they go and purposely change these Viper legs just to match that....... stupid......

This is one of the best done sets.

 

And I'm not talking about the quality. I'd rather have a rehash of an old set then get guys people actually WANT (so to speak). I mean I've got the twins and I've got Vipers. I don't need them again. But if they did, say Repeater or Airtight, I (and I'm sure a LOT of fans) would be pretty pissed. Look at Classics Thrust and Dirge. Or DTC wave 4.

Between the awful chromed heads, and the leg-swap (Not to mention the nonsensical-from-the-getgo use of a Viper uniform in the Crimson Guard), I'm happy to pass on this set. I'll probably hunt down the twins, and any con-only offerings (like the rumored Quarrel!), but the Vipers themselves Vac-U-Suk.

So what going to be next years Convention Set ? the Anaconda Set in 25th Style Figures ? or the Everglades Set ? LOL Probably not , but it would suck if that's what they do .... this set is understandable cause not alot of people got their hands on the 2002 Vipers ....But if they decide to do previous themed sets , that would sorta suck.

Looks Great Love the Baroness. I like the chrome heads. I would get it if teh price is right. Also Makes me feel better cuz I sold My original set for $400 last month.

Images look nice and the chrome makes them even nicer, glad I am getting these. I have the original set, nothing beats the original set, however the 09 set pays homage. I am excitted to see what other ideas the club might be working on that are 25th related.
