$20 Alphas? Makes me glad I found and bought the AWE Striker and Ice Cutter last weekend.

I remember back in the RAHC days in 2000-01 when I bought the TRU exclusive AWE Striker for $10. $20 for it now is just insane.

Previews for February 2011 lists this as the next wave of POC:

    * Jungle BAT
    * General Hawk
    * Blowtorch
    * Steel Brigade Trooper
    * Cobra Trooper
    * Cobra Commander



And there's an image of the Jungle BAT, which I kind of like:

Well thank goodness they gave Duke, Snake Eyes, and Storm Shadow a break for once.  Sheesh.  I LOVE the 25th B.A.T. mold (picked up a few more for $2 at TJ Maxx last weekend) but I'll be good at 2 of these for the new inflated price....possibly not though.

I wonder if Cobra Commander is going to be sporting the look he has in the Renegades show.

HTS has wave 4 up for pre-order.  I will hold out for now though - will wait for more things for other lines because I am confident I will have no problem finding these at retail.

I am wondering if a Neo Viper head would fit on this new Destro?  I think it might look cool.

Thanks for the tip.  With all the gas I've used driving around looking in vain for Wave 3 Snake Eyes, I figured what the hell and ordered Wave 4.  I'm sure I'll come out ahead in the long run.

Wave 4 is also in stock at BBTS, where I got mine. I received them late last week, and they're really neat. Lowlight is great and all, but I'm really liking Shadow Tracker.

Wave 4 came in stock at SmallJoes.com so I put in an order today.  Also picked up the Helix 1-shot that I'd been looking for.  Should have ordered them yesterday and I could have had them for the weekend but I'll probably get them Monday.  I'm really psyched to get this wave.

Oh wow - I'd absolutely love for that to be true!  Crazy Legs was a favorite of mine as a kid... so was Croc Master.  A Rock Viper and Iron Grenadier would be great... sounds awesome to me.  And a new Viper?  I hope it has elements of the RAH design, but more realistic colors and much better sculpt/articulation than the 25th version.

Apparently that list came from BBTS and someone from the Tank spotted it.  BBTS has removed the listing now.

Out of that list, the only figure I'd buy is probably the Viper.  Maybe an Iron Grenadier, but it depends on what he looks like.  Not a fan really of the Rock Viper or Croc Master, Crazylegs isn't terrible but I doubt I'd be that interested.

And another Snake Eyes?  Hasbro, you just gave us probably the best SE you'll ever be able to produce.  Please don't **** it up by trying another version.

^^^  what he said about SE - though if it really is cool I would have no problem with getting another.  The rest of the list sounds pretty cool though.

One thing to think about/ask though is, when does Hasbro plan to start adding Renegades characters into the mix?  Out of the past 2 rumor lists there is only 1, maybe 2 figures that could fall into the Renegades show (unless I am missing something since I am about 2 episodes behind) - those 2 are Cobra Commander and Cobra Trooper.

I'm guessing we'll have a better idea on the Renegades stuff after Toy Fair...

Now, did something change or didn't Hasbro say that they weren't going to go with figure designs based on the Renegades animation?  Did that change or is Hasbro just planning on doing Renegade characters in a realistic POC style?

I'm loving what they're doing right now and really want to see it continue.  I definitely want POC style Scarlett and Baroness figures along with Cover Girl and then a couple other other favorites like Gung Ho, Rock n Roll, maybe Law & Order or Mutt and Junkyard, a new take on Stalker, Alpine and Major Bludd over on the Cobra side.  I'm just not ready to move on from what they're doing right now into something else.

that was what they were planning the last time it was brought up.
