Yeah, Alley Viper and the like were in the vintage line...  Getting nearer to its end...  I think they came out after like Hit & Run and Chuckles...  Speaking of, outstandingly cool Chuckles and H&R figures.  I loved those two.  Rip Cord looks bitchin' too.

Honestly I think a lot of the ROC figures look quite nice and would make good random Joes...  I couldn't look at them as the characters they're named after though I'm afraid, but maybe as just random extra JOes they're cool.  Scarlet, Snake Eyes, SS, Baronness all look great though...  Zartan is cool too, but not cool as Zartan to me.

Alley Viper is actually the last figure I picked up back in the day before I left GI Joe - definately vintage in my eyes.  Loved that guy even though his outfit was very loud.  Ranger Viper and Night Creeper?  Meh....

Agreed - but I'm no customizer so they're hopefully going to stay on the pegs where all of the other movie crap belongs.  PITT?  What a POS that thing is as are almost all of the movie vehicles - Night Raven?  I loved you back in the day, but now you've been scaled down and you suck now that you have a handle.

I like the Stormshadow a lot too...  I htink he's a pretty sharp looking figure.  SE is ok...  Scarlet is actually pretty superior to her original, as the original is a little odd looking.  She's much more badass looking in commando gear.

I find the whole ROC idea lame, but I think it could be BS'd to fit into a nice display...  Again though, I wouldn't look at Breaker as Breaker though...  Maybe just Breaker's buddy that hands him **** and doesn't get much play. :)

I think the code name "Breaker's Buddy That Hands Him ****" is long overdue.

I think it'd be funny if his code name was given to him by Breaker himself...  Total ballbuster, that Breaker guy.

I don't know if anyone here collects the Sideshow 12" Joes, but it looks like Storm Shadow and a Cobra Paratrooper have been announced.

Saw some new stuff at Walmart today, being the 5-pk battle packs.  Saw one Joe set, one Cobra set, and 4 of the Resolute sets... easy pass for me on all of these.  But, I did pick up a Ghost Hawk with Lift Ticket.

How much were the 5packs at WM?  I haven't seen them anywhere yet and I'm not even sure I want them, but knowing is half the battle ya know?  Definitely skipping the VvV thing though.

Ghost Hawk is an awesome vehicle as is the Sting Raider.  Probably my two faves out of all the vehicle rehash/releases in this line thus far.

There weren't stickers on the shelf - they were just piled up next to the DVD Battle Packs.  I did not scan them - but, if I am able to swing by there again soon I'll be sure to scan and let you know...

Nice.  Stormshadow would have looked good with Snake Eyes.  Which I cancelled.  I've been more and more unimpressed with Sideshow and couldn't justify the $120 price on a line that I don't collect that heavily. 

Still, Snake, Stormshadow and Firefly were my three dream figures from this line.

I bought both of the new five packs.

Mostly because I am dumb.

But that new Baroness is sweet. :)

iFett, I went by that Walmart again and the 5-pks won't scan - the price checker says "Please see sales associate" or something like that.

I did see them at TRU today for $29.99.

fabulous!  I will be dumb too when I eventually find them.

Thanks for checking Chewie.  I'm still hoping to save $5 or so at Target or even at that evil place.

You know what sucks about the five packs?  I mean, besides the fact that they're a bunch of resculpts?

No stands. :(
