I think 25th had some shaky releases due to the fact that Hasbro hadn't originally planned a full carded line. But when it really took off, they scrambled and got the line rolling. But I agree, what they're putting out now is not only some of the best stuff they've ever done but some of the best stuff in the 4" scale out of any company.
I really liked most of what was shown at the con, even the Renegades figures look great. But did anyone else notice the lack of vehicles? Yes, they have the excellent new Skystriker coming and the VTOL Cobra vehicle looks nice, but the other two vehicles were repaints (Hiss and VAMP). Those Alpha vehicles that are supposed to be coming, Hiss Scout and Ashiko, are now going to be online exclusives and it seems that Hasbro may be giving up that shelf space at retail.
As I mentioned, I think that if Hasbro can't get Walmart back on board for the Joe line, we may not see some of this stuff get released. There's just a real lack of retailer support for Joe right now, and it's too bad. With Renegades getting pulled and the troubling news about the feature film, it feels like an uphill battle for the toy line.
