I agree with the sentiment that the Renegades stuff is not too animated... in fact, blended in with the 30th line, these are the best GI JOE figures ever made in my opinion.  They look so good opened up, and my son is really enjoying them... I'm a bit jealous of his collection!  Ha Ha.

I honestly don't think the Renegades look Animated at all...  They look true to their character they're representing, but their facial features and body structure are 100% realistic IMO.  This is what I wish we'd gotten out of Clone Wars to be honest, since I'd like figures from it but not cartoony looking.

I picked up Duke and will nab T Rat for sure.

Yeah, I can't imagine how much Clone Wars stuff I would have bought the past few years if they had gone realistic style with those figures.

I have to admit I'm almost thankful on one hand that I didn't get that hooked into CW since that would've certainly been a lot more costly to me.  On the other hand though, I really wanted realistic CW stuff, and not just one or two from the series, but a pretty thorough line of realistic stuff.

I'm cool with one or two like we're going to get (for now), but I would've been all-in on the entire line, had it turned out that way.

Carded pics of Lifeline and Zombie Viper





Lifeline is a must for me.  Still debating on the Zombie Viper.  It looks cool and all, but I don't really need it.

Wow, great pics... I'll get Lifeline for my son, and a couple Zombie Vipers... I might even get a couple more of those for myself.  Both look awesome!

I just hope we see these at retail.  Most of all my local stores went from having 6-8 Destros to just absolutely jammed pegs of Renegades with maybe a viper here and there.  I noticed Target dropped the price down a tad to $7.89 at least in my area, but I sure hope these don't sit too long so the good stuff doesn't make it out. 

Zombie Viper?  Still trying to figure that one out, but he looks pretty nifty.

I love the amount of accessories JOE manages to cram in a bubble. Maybe when TVC runs it's course, we can get a hybrid card design with a Vintage look and these bigger bubbles.

That Lifeline figure is a thing of beauty.  I'm really looking forward to picking him up.  Oddly enough, I really like Sci-Fi also, and I wasn't expecting to.  I have the vintage figure but I've never been a huge fan, but this new take is pretty cool.

Good find.  Was the Steel Brigade the original or the new version with the Snake Eyes body?  If it's the SE body it'll have a holster on the right hip and a ribbed sweater.

It was the snake eyes version, and I didnt know that those knee pads will come off.
Ive been away from Joes since about 2001, and before that I had been away since about 1990. Now I have to rebuild a cast from scratch

Quoted for truth...  I must have 2 of him.

Perfect medic figure.  Doc could only hope to be this awesome! :)

I'll miss POC.

I just noticed Lifeline comes with weapons. Did they change his pacifist background?
