I also bought the TRU 3-packs today. This was the first time I've seen all three but it still took a while to decide to buy them. I mainly wanted the gold CG, Grunt and Cobra Commander. I like the large Cobra sigil on the v1 Cobra Commander and other paint details. The Duke, Hawk, red CC, CG, Cobra Officer and soldier are ok.
I also found w7 at Wal-Mart today. I really like them all. However, I'm having a harder time liking the Viper then I thought possible. It has funky wrists, bad ankle articulation, rubbery toes, loose goggles that fall off all the time, a backpack that won't lay flat against the back and a vest that won't stay clasped. It looks cool standing there but is hard do much with.
On the other hand the Snake Eyes v3 is awesome and 100% perfect. I wish they could get all the figures to work this well. Holds weapons well, great articlation, many great accessories. Awesome.
Spirt, Wild Bill and HISS Driver are also very cool and it's hard to find anything wrong with them. I'm still not a big fan of the mid-torso look on the Hiss Driver/Flash.
w7 Duke is cool too. I'm not big on repaints but the flag stand is cool and jetpack works great on the silver Grand Slam.
