The look good with the bazookas. Maybe this new set are heat seeking so only need pointing in the general direction?

Apologies if this has been asked elsewhere:

Anyone know why Flint is in the set? Or why the Interrogator has a Cobra insignia? I'm not yet seeing the connection with the Shads. Is it something to tie them in with current storylines (of which I know little)?

Hasbro's stipulations to the club was that there had to be one Joe and one Cobra. why those two in particular? no idea.

The group shot looks good but they should have included only 2 Red Torches and 10 Red Shadows. I imagine a lot of people are going to try and unload Red Torches and up the Red Shadow count. This probably means it will be hard to recoup about $20 for each unwanted figure and will make the Red Shadows a $50+ figure.

I'm guessing Flint was the chosen Joe as a continuity nod to DDP

Very good point DA - and one I'd not realised myself. Some sort of revenge thing going on? Could they be taking the Wilder is Black Major thing on a bit do we think? Although saying that he shoudl really now be grey haired rather than ginger.
