The 7 packs aren't up anywhere just yet.  They should be within a couple of weeks now that package pics have been posted.  As for the vehicles, Hasbro said they would be availble through e-tailers who buy in large quantities, so I suggest BBTS or EE.  You may be able to use others (I prefer GoodStufftoGo or SmallJoes), but I don't think they have pre-orders up right now.  The vehicles are scheduled to ship this month from BBTS, and all they have left are a few odd singles (but not one of everything) and complete cases.

Just got in the RES SE, and did a quick set of pics and review.  If  you don't mind the trek, they are up here:

Resolute Snake Eyes *IN HAND* Pics and Review

Almost forgot, want to give credit to Black Sheep Toy Store for the hookup.  Great bunch of guys and fair to deal with.

*EDIT*  The link seems to be working fine for me, but if not, here it is again :

Go take your Geritol you old curmudgeon.  Resolute is the AWESOME!!!

On a side note, I can't wait to hear what you think about this years 25th Crimson Strike Team Con set.   Call my cell if you don't catch me at home.  Going to be in Richardson most of the day.

Not to worry, I'll keep making everything until the molds die.  That includes the helmet and harness.  As for the helmets, do you guys want me to just take a stab at the colors from the pics or would you rather wait until it's in hand and I can get closer?

Some observations:

Hit & Run-  Still using Airborne's head it appears, but the torso is now COBRA Soldier, legs from Gen. Hawk, and arms from General Hawk.  All of AB's gear with the SS grappling hook, and Screaming Duke harness.

Recondo-  They changed to the smaller Gen. Hawk pistol and harness w/ Flint's backpack.

Ripcord-  Looks to be the harness from DVD COBRA Soldier with a belly chute added, H&K G36 from Spytroops, and a black Blowtorch helmet and mask.

Wet Suit-  Original tanks and board, with Torpedo mask with longer tubes.  Blech.

Chuckles-  Destro's briefcase and pistol, with the satchel from TRat.

Outback-  Original style gun with backpack from Redstar I think.

Zap-  New bazooka with modded 1982 backpack.

BATS-  Same as HOH with tentacles from DVD pack 1.

Night Creeper-  New crossbow with 1989 SE backpack and reissue sword.

Mindbender-  Original style weapons.

Lampreys-  Removable faceplate, rebreather, WWII rifle and Naboo pistol.

Strato Viper-  Basic pistol.

Alley Viper-  Backpack with removable crossbow, new rifle, new helmet & visor (old school style), retooled 1988 shield, Mutt nightstick.

Ranger Viper-  DTC helmet, Gen Hawk backpack, TRat harness and pistol, TRat machinegun, Range Viper grenade launcher.

I've had those for about a week now, and both SS and Destro will grow on you (most likley).  I wrote a reveiw for both and took some comparison and individual pics if you care to look:

And don't forget, I've got a mold to make extras working as well as Paul's storied generosity.

Weird that they haven't sold well there.  Most Target's have one of each on the shelf pretty much everywhere, but are not stockpiled with them.  I'd consider it a pretty successful sell through.

On a sidenote, got in the latest comic packs today (BORING, and the Sting Raider & Ghost Hawk today.  Very good stuff.

Prepare to be PO'ed.  The one in the 5 pack looks to just be a recolor of the same figure with partially translucent armour. 

BTW, Paul is the best EVAR!  Grabbed me a case of wv 13, with the very cool new Dukey-pants in it!  You RAWK!

Just thought I'd let everyone know that the second batch of Docs has started arriving.  I got in 8 today, and as a suprise, they all seem to have the fix (non-emo) Duke forearms.  Other than that the packaging and cardback are all the same.  Good stuff!

I've already got a copy of Hard Master/Snake Eyes, and Mainframe in hand.  All the figures are nice, but Mainframe is both the most cool and uncool at the same time.  He comes with a small carboard sheet that has two 3 inch floppies and a pair of old school 8 inch floppies that you can cut out.  Old-tech for the win!  The drawback is that he has Spirit's hands, and as such can't hold anything in his left hand really.

SRO three packs are up at TRU as of yesterday afternoon.  Picked up the sets I needed, and an extra for Paul, so go grab yours.

I know this isn't really the place for it (in that it's a custom and not an official figure), but here's a little something I just finished for Paul.

Yep, I hit my local Target today as well, and nothing.  I think it's all a lie, and there are no jets.....
