Yeah, even Cobra Commander looked good! It's a great wave.

Plan on getting Storm Shadow, Data Viper, Kwinn and the Crimson Guard ( can't have too many CGs ). Is the Ultimate Snake Eyes, Duke and Roadblock in this wave?

Yes they are. This may be the best modern era wave of Joes yet.

Alcinde I totally agree with u. I'm not usually a big fan of
Movie figures but will definitely get Duke and Roadblock.

Best CG figure ever and I have a lot of them. Two rifles, one submachine gun, one pistol, one sword (which you can sheath on the figure itself), and one knife. The head pops off so you can remove the battle vest for the traditional ceremonial look underneath. Comes with a stand that looks like a dog tag, and, as a nice touch, he comes with a tiny sticker sheet where you can assign him rank and branch in the Cobra army! I didn't recognize all the branches, but there is the Air Force winged cobra and what appears to be a sigil with a crown, that probably represents honor guard or something. Very cool. Had no idea that was coming.

I bet the army builders will be pleased with that. :mrgreen:

Wow. I may pick up more than one. With some of the recent releases the accessories have been pretty minimal but these seem to kick them up a notch.

I was on hasbrotoyshop yesterday and picked up Kwinn, Ultimate Flint, Roadblock, Snake Eyes, Cobra Commander, and Budo. They have a promotion going on right now 15% off your order. Promo Code is sept15. It was cool because I got free shipping too with orders over 50 dollars.

Unfortunately they didn't have Jinx (in her yellow outfit), Ultimate Storm Shadow, Cobra Ninja Trooper (the movie soldier), Ultimate Duke.

They had the Ultimate Firefly too and a few others but since I bought that movie 3-pack with that badass Firefly I didn't need this movie version.

I got a cobra combat ninja from a member on Hisstank, a Data Viper from a collectable convention for not a bad price a few weeks ago. It was only $5 above retail which is great for something im sure ill never see in the stores. I also went to a walgreens on tuesday and found the ultimate storm shadow. What a great figure even though I wasnt planning on getting it at all but seeing this wave at an actual store made me grab it..made the mistake before of passing on figures at walgreens and then never seeing them again.

I think it was a couple of Christmas's ago that I found the 30th Sci-Fi, Lifeline, Airtight at the Walgreens near my house while my wife and I were getting a few last minute things b4 Christmas and I picked up Sci-Fi, which I wasn't able to find at retail again.

I want to get that Storm Shadow since I missed out on the Renegades one from a couple of years back. I'll have to check that same Walgreens soon.

Didn't POC Recondo come with a bear trap Stew?
I can't remember. I got him loose and I'm not sure I got all the accessories.

He Might have-- but I skipped that figure- didnt remind me of Recondo in any way, shape or form.
