So, apparently we're getting Retro Grunt, Cobra Officer, and a blue repaint of the HISS with Rip-It (HISS driver repaint). Grunt looks very classic/basic as he should. The officer looks good too, but the display sample has the red logo on the package artwork. The figure has the correct silver logo, but why they changed the package art logo to red is baffling. I know it's a pedantic thing to get hung up on, but when you're trying your damnedest to use nostalgia to sell a product, f#$%ing get it right. It's not that hard.
I'm probably the only one around here that's getting these, but when you get a bunch of them with the classic artwork, they look cool as hell. These will make the 12th and 13th single-carded releases in the line. If they can get anywhere from 24-30 of them out, it'll make a hell of a display next to my vintage Japanese figures (there were 24 of those produced back in the day). I'd love to have 100 different ones covering a wall like the Vintage SW line. All the nostalgia of the 80's at a fraction of the price and no worries about o-ring degradation ruining the investment.
The Stalker figure from the last wave is one of my favorite 4" figures ever. Very classic looking, and the plastic isn't nearly as rubbery as many of the 25th figures I own. I've heard a few complaints about the fang pilot being gummy, so maybe I got a good one, but overall, these retro figs are well done, come with tons of gear, and scratch an itch that nothing else can.
