Kind of ironic- a boxed set based around Sgt. Slaughter's Renegades and Marauders without a Slaughter in it. But seeing Mercer, Red Dog, and Taurus updated makes it neat.

And that Dreadnok pack is awesome. Gotta have it.  :)

Awesome.  Love the Dreadnok set, what a great way to get the remaining original 'Noks (plus Zanya and the black dude).  Must be a rights issue with calling Thrasher Thunder.  Hopefully Gnawgahyde comes with his wild boar.  I'm also glad they didn't include another Zartan with the set.

Getting the Marauders set strictly for Mercer, Red Dog and Taurus.  Would love to have seen Sarge included as I never managed to get him.

pre-order is up.  I bit.  About $100 shipped for both packs.

The Slaughter's Marauders set is a pretty easy pass for me (although if any of you want to sell me the Falcon loose, I'd be interested), but I pre-ordered that Dreadnok set.

If you pre-order off BBTS let 'em know JD sent ya!  I thought the $89.99 deal wasn't bad if you wanted both sets.  I'm going to see if my bro's ordering these or what.

I love the Dreadnok set...  Won't buy it for myself, but that's pretty awesome and a nice tidy way to wrap them up.

There's a Thrasher, he's just called Thunder.

Ya I'm pretty pissed there's no Slaughter in this set especially after Hasbro commented on how fast the SDCC versions sold out and that they promised he'd be back in some shape or form.  Ya....no.  Nice to see there's a combo deal with the Resolute sets for $125.  I will bite on that.

Cripes. Two weeks after I buy the Resolute sets, they have this even better deal. Oh well. Can't wait for these sets. Very nice way to finish off the 'Noks

It is a pretty sweet deal.  All said and done and shipped to your door for 28 figures it is under $5 a figure.  I am thinking about it...

I got some decent shots of these last night.

Any requests of specific figures let me know.

There was a guy camped in front of the case when I was trying to get pics basically giving the entire history of GI JOE:RAH to the Poor Hasbro guy.
