I saw the newer 5 packs at our local TRU the other day as well.  I just about picked up the Joe set, even though they were mainly just "tweaks" of the original figures, but it was ringing up at $30 there so I passed.  They had the Cobra and Resolute packs there as well.  All of them look pretty good, but I just couldn't pay that much for the minor differences in the figures.

I don't think Target had the Resolute figures.  If they did I didn't pay attention.

Jesse, the Cobra set had SS, Commander, Baroness, Zartan and Viper (with the new arm) and the Joe set had SE, Lady Jaye, Hawk, Shipwrek and Flint.

TNI has a pic up of the "Destro with mask" figure from the Rise of Cobra movie line, if anyone is interested.

I'm not that interested in the figure, but people at Hiss are going insane over it.  Still not enough to drag me into the movie line full boar.

OK, that's not what I saw.  Thanks E!

I got the Resolute set with Duke and 4 Cobra figures...  It's neat looking.  I like their tweak of a German Luger.  Very Star Wars-ish.

Thanks, that looks pretty sweet!  I'll definitely be picking that one up.

One of my local Targets reset a new endcap with TF animated Shockwave and Sunstorm on the top shelves with the Joe jets (original Rat/Conquest versions) on the bottom two - all for $24.99 - I sense a mass clearance once they pull the endcap.  Hopefully that means that the repaint jets will make it to retail soonish rather than laterish.  I know that these are available on the website, but I'd rather not pay shipping and just find them on one of my random toy runs.  Also scored a $24.99 Resolute pack which I'm diggin, but it would have been nice to have a carded release of the red BAT.....meh what am I sayin?  It's Hasbro!

If you mean the Tiger Force Rattler and Python Patrol Conquest, I've seen both at my local Target so they're out there.

I saw those both today too, in the regular aisle - mixed in with the regular paint scheme versions.

I know they're out there, but they haven't reached MN yet.  We've got too many of the original versions.

Cracked open my Resolute pack over the weekend and I nominate the BAT as figure of the year/decade/century.  I'd go to town if when he gets single packed down the road.  The other repaints are what they are (I'd probably like them more after I see the toon) but I really dig the rocket launcher and Duke's new jetpack.  Good stuff....

I still haven't picked up the Resolute 5-Pack because all I really want is the BAT from that pack.  Really hoping they make a TRU 5-Pack exclusive set of these bats but that probably won't happen.

Anyone care to read the qna's this go around?  Only confirmation I got was of Dial Tone and the Snowcat.  Kinda scary that Hasbro won't confirm if the classic line will resume after the movie, but I enjoyed it while it lasted.
