The set looks good but the timing is bad. I hate going months with no new product and then everything gets released at once. I would probably buy mulitiples of the set if it was released in like Feb. or March. Too much product is already fighting for my money in the next few months!!!

Tell me about it

There is going to be exclusives at both Walmart and Target as well as the online exclusives. There will be several waves of new figures on the shelves as well as all the new vehicles. Yet we also cant forget the DVD sets too. It is going to be an insane round up for this year and all of the above mentioned items are not going to stop coming until the beginning of next year.

I am happy for all the new products but I am also sure it will drain my purse of cash.

What does CRIMSON stand for anymore..anyway? @hmmm@

For the answer to that, let's consult the commanders of the Crimson Guard. Hey Tomax, Xamot, have you seen them around? No, you guys can't be the CG commanders! You're like, the trooper commanders or Viper commanders or something, right?

Since it's been brought up, all of these figures are specialists of some kind or another except the CG's. Hisstank posted a pic of the back of the box during Joecon which listed what their jobs were (I'd post the pic but I can't find it). The barbaque repaint is a flame thrower not a fire fighter.

EDIT-here's a link. Look at the card art pics.

Thanks for the link.

How did the Crimson Guard ELITE troopers get relegated to "desert infantry"?

Yeah, you guys may not like them, but I bet if someone had customized a set of these figures personally, you'd all love them.

They're cool and the only ones I don't care for are the CGs.

Crimson??? I think it stands for the color of all the blood that is going to be spent paying off the credit cards used to buy all the Joe stuff that is comming out this fall. @firedevil@ :D

So does that make Bludd a "Major Toxic Desert Viper"? :D

My guess is that is actually a flame thrower, not a fire extinguisher, for example.

Actually, from the box art it looks like the cutting torch is a flamethrower and the fire extinguisher is some sort of gas gun... judging by the bio-hazard symbol on his chest and his "Hostile Environment" designation, I'd guess he's meant to be a stand in for a proper Toxo-Viper. A "Toxo-Viper Light", if you will, as the Eels are said to be for the Hydro-Vipers, or Toxo-Vipers themselves are to Heavy Waters.

We have the guy with the mine detector, ok, that guy we can figure out. But the guy with the cutting torch? With the fire extinguisher? #WTF#

I call them Fuse-Viper, Flame-Viper, and Chem-Viper, respectively.
