    They're all remolds. Flint uses Duke's base mold, the rest use molds from the 5-packs.

    I'm buying Flint, though disappointed that the figure is just a remold of Duke.

    With Snake Eyes available as a single, I might forgo the 5-packs as well.

    First pic went down for whatever reason, here's another.

    This line is so f-ing perfect. I LOVE the hooded Commander with the darker blue!

    edit: Still, where's Hawk? :(

    I had really hoped that later versions of characters would not be included right away. But I guess Storm Shadow is just too popular not to include another version. Snake Eyes I understand since his second version is arguably his "classic" version.

    Overall though, this line looks AMAZING!!!!

    So, we have 15 of 25 now:

    Cobra Commander (helmet)
    Cobra Commander (hood)
    Storm Shadow (v1)
    Storm Shadow (v2)
    Baroness
    Destro
    Cobra Officer
    Cobra Trooper
    Duke
    Flint
    Scarlett
    Roadblock
    Gung Ho
    Snake Eyes (v1)
    Snake Eyes (v2)

    Who are going to be the last 10? Any guesses? Any official word? Here would be my choices:

    Viper
    Serpentor
    Mindbender
    Spirit
    Lady Jaye
    Hawk
    Ace
    Wild Weasel
    Zartan
    Dusty

    No official word yet on what characters will be included, though I would bet very heavily on Lady Jaye and would hope that they make Shipwreck, because sailors are cool.

    I love it- I'm so buying all of these. I was iffy about Flint using Duke's mold at first, but it really works well. Snake Eyes is hard to do wrong. I'm relieved the officer has the silver symbol. I have no complaints about CC, but I prefer him with the chromedome. The only one I can do without is the Joe version of Storm Shadow, which strikes me as an odd choice. I'd have rather seen his slot go to a different character. Still, I'm completing the line so I'll enjoy him. These are all greatness.

    Bring on the new molds! I can't wait to see Zartan & Firefly.

    Blast! I gave up buying Joes months ago but these might pull me back in again! I'm a sucker for Snake-eyes and Timber! Where can I find more information on this line? I assume that this line 3 3/4 inches?

    Only the first 10 are being released in 5-packs with a sound box that plays the theme for $25. The G.I. Joe set will have Duke, Snake-Eyes v1, Scarlett, Roadblock, and Gung-Ho. The Cobra set will have Cobra Commander v1, Destro, Baroness, Storm Shadow v1, and Cobra Trooper. All five in the picture above are single carded. The Cobra Trooper will also be getting released outside of the 5-pack as a single carded figure. The single figures will run $6 each.

    Hasbro's G.I. Joe page has a pictures of the first 10. Also if you look at the art that they use for the thumbnails you can see that while it looks like the original it is either new or altered. The best example is the art for the Baroness. In her original art she was only holding a gun in her right hand but in the art used on the site she has a different gun plus she is now holding a knife in her left hand. You can view Hasbro's G.I. Joe 25th Anniversary page here.

    Thanks for the link! I'm currently checking out the link and looks like I'm sucked in again! But living in Asia means I have to buy them via online stores and ebay!

    I'm a bit torn on these. They look cool, but they seem like a waste of character slots in a line that only has 25 figs (except Flint). Honestly, I dont think I would've noticed Flint was a Duke remold if it wasnt pointed out to me. Snake Eyes I actually might like better than the other one, but I dont see why Hasbro couldnt just use one or the other (aside from cheapness). The Cobra Officer is forgivable since it's a troop builder that fits in with the Trooper. But, it seems like they should be reversed. If you want to troop build the Troop, you have to buy a shitload of the 5-pack. And there should be more troopers than officers, so it makes no sense to put the officer in a single pack. While I dont like CC being used twice, I think he might actually look better than the first one, just like I said about SE. SS looks good, but he's the least impressive of the 5 shown, and he's the one who needed a duplicate the least.


    I'm still hoping Firefly can be a part of the last 10, but at this point I'm not optimistic

    Yeah, I agree. They look great but damn, 25 unique characters would've been a lot better

    The 2nd versions of CC, Snake Eyes & Storm Shadow are nice but I was hoping we'de get more characters instead of different versions. :(

    Screw more characters, Hooded/Helmet versions of CC are a must and Snake Eyes needed the V2 version cause that is THE Snake Eyes :p

    It would've been very easy to make CC with swappable heads instead of 2 whole figures, and if V2 is the only Snake Eyes that matters than Hasbro should've just made him in the first place

    I could have lived without ninja Snake-eyes. Oh well.
    Hopefully they wont forget about Hawk.
    I wouldnt mind Cover Girl, Shipwreck, Zartan, Bludd, or Firefly either.
