It's coming....and I can't wait to see what kind of treats Hasbro has in store for us.   :)

Was there some announcement made, because the only interesting news I recall from this round of Q&A is that the Renegade figures will be in the same style we have now and not animated.  Which is probably for the best.

The 25th line was excellent, but I would rather have more of the POC line than revert to a line resembling the 25th offerings.

There were a few QnA's where they mentioned the 30th anniv - maybe it won't be a "line" but they commented on pleasing collectors or some jazz, just too lazy to go dig at the moment....

I doubt it'll be an entire line, but maybe just some neat figures sprinkled in with the GI Joe 2 movie line, which I'm pretty sure is supposed to come out in 2012.

I picked up a Stalker, a couple Vipers, and a Cobra Trooper from this line at a WalMart.

I missed these the other day but yesterday WM had a new stock of them.  They had already sold one Cobra soldier and a Steel Brigade but I picked up the other SB figure, both Hazard Vipers and Stalker.

I snagged an Iron Grenadier from the find last week but passed on them yesterday.  I have several of the first release and only got one of the new ones due to the paint change.  I also passed on the Viper even though he has some different paint apps as well, but may snag one if I see them again.  The new Cobra soldier looks pretty good but I didn't bother with him because I have quite a few of the 25th versions, plus I built a squad of the Shock Troopers so didn't feel that I needed more.

I'd like to pick up a few more Steel Brigade figures so I hope I find that wave again a couple times.

Picked up a pair of each of the new Cobra Soldier and the Hazard Vipers today.  Badass figures!!!  Very nicely done.  Only minor complaint is no pistol holsters on the Hazard Vipers even though he comes with what appears to be a pair of Glock 9 mm or .40s. Same thing with the SWAT troopers last year, they needed holsters although I think their pistols were stun guns, who knows.  I'll have to come up with some holster mods myself.

Otherwise these are stellar.

Neat. I'm sure I'm in for that one, but I don't need to renew til early March. I'm kind of surprised they revealed it already, since they took a long time between announcing Dial-Tone and actually revealing the figure.

Not making the same mistake twice.  (I didn't get the membership for Dial-Tone, mistake)

Footloose looks good and I'll definitely get in on that, but the Man of Evil 12" figure blew me away.  I think that may be the best single figure they've ever released.  Ever.

Looks okay, but too expensive for a lil 4" dude imo.  I am hooked on TFCC "free" figures since they're mostly stickinig with G1 inspired stuff though.

I'm going to pass on Footloose and get a couple Man of Evil figures and accessory sets.  My Henchman figure will now have a boss.
