It took me 1 second to make up my mind on this topic. Low-Light with out a doubt. I love everything about this figure. I repeat everything...

grand slam.....the only figure im going to buy. i hate new sculpts but i also hate handling my 83 grand slam. i always feel like im going to break him, so its time for a replacement.

Low Light, he's always been one of my favorite joes. Nice figure.

Low-Ligth is always one of my favorite characters I was even thinking of making me one a costum with a Torpedo but I believe Hasbro I am advanced in the idea or they took it out of T.N.I. but the figure this very good one.

Cobra Trooper this horrible one its head it seems a bell when is put the helmet

Grand Slam ehh if this well

Med Alert for that devils don't make Life Line figure and they are left of being inventing characters

Monkey Wrench this very beautiful one the detail of the jacket is them super, I wait they take out to production the other Dreaknoks that they lack as Buzzer, Road PIG etc.

S.A.W. Viper the murderer this very well carried out although it is not compared with the original it is allowed to see, the only thing that I dislike is the reciling of bodies and parts that Hasbro has carried out and resembles Mattel

I said Low-Light, even though he has issues holding his gun. I'm not entirely sure how I'm going to display him because of this. Aside from that though, he just looks too cool.

That's where I am for my vote.

However, in order to stay on topic, I'll go with Grand Slam until I have them in my hands for review.

Low Light.:D

I feel special. I'm the only one who voted for Med-Alert. I dunno why, but I am so looking forward to getting him if/when Hasbro finally starts selling Wave 3.

I am torn between two of them, Monkeywrench and Low-Light.

On the one hand, it's nice to see Monekeywrench get real weapons for a change. I mean, I quite forgiving when it comes to odd weapons in the vintage line, but really, that trident he had looked like it was meant for an a Cobra Eel.

On the other hand, Low-Light is just plain cool. The original is one of the coolest Joe figures and this one is it's equal among the new sculpts.

Still, I think I'll choose Low-Light. It's a cool figure, and I think his face sculpt is actually closer to the card art depiction on the original Low-Light.

Monkey Wrench: the only decent one of these repaints that they bothered to put some effort into and make a new head for (aside from the poorly named and horribly painted Med Alert)

I like th SAW Viper, turned out better than I expected.

Monkeywrench gets my vote...he would make a nice Machette.

02-28-2006, 02:32 PM
I chose Med-Alert because, well, I'm a nerd.

02-28-2006, 03:29 PM
I m a big fan of Grand Slam....loved him as a kid and I think the new sculpt did him justice...

03-02-2006, 02:40 PM
Low-Light, hands down. You want me to explain why? :confused:

Come on, man... LOOK AT HIM!!!! :D


03-04-2006, 12:45 AM
Low-light. Very good homage to the original with a new cool sniper rifle and swivel wrists. Not that's what I'm talkin' about! :D

03-06-2006, 07:21 PM
I voted Grand Slam before today when I actually recieved him and the LRRP in the mail. GS is still OK but I gotta change my vote to 'Nam Snake-Eyes. The parts used are pretty much dead on to the comic and the head sculpt is great. There's a little picture of his sister in the rim of his hat, folks! Can't imagine a fan of the comic not being happy with him or the whole pack.

Low light is who I want its about time he gets an update

03-20-2006, 01:43 AM
I voted for Low-Light with Monkey Wrench second & Grand Slam third!

I just picked up the Entire wave at Toys R Us for $5.99 each...I like them,the Low Light and Saw Viper are the best. The Cobra Troopers are very plain and cartoony but work pretty good.

03-25-2006, 01:55 AM
I can't belive how cool these are. As it stands the SAW viper is pretty awsome(yes I realize he is a simple repaint). I don't want to vote though until I have them all.

03-25-2006, 06:37 PM
grand slam is my new favorite character in the joe line base solely on this figure. I cant believe how much I like this character right now.

I just hooked up my Cobra Troopers with Snake-Eyes VvV tactical vest,now these look a **** of a lot better...To bad the hasbro dolts didnt think of this.

Grand Slam gets my vote. It's great to see an old favorite back after all these years. I love the olive drab color and the body gives me a chance to whip up a Flash pretty easily. It looks like I may be making my first ever custom soon. Monkeywrench was a close second.

Now that I have him in hand (and open) Monkey Wrench is definitely the best. The two shotguns fit right in his awesome trenchcoat. Too cool! :cool:

Low Light.

Figures like this reassure me that it IS possible to make new-sculpt figures that are every bit as great as old-sculpt RAH figures.

04-04-2006, 02:48 PM

I have all of them but Med Alert which I don't plan on getting, unless its like half price.

Problem is though how do you choose. Monkey Wrench, Lowlight, Saw viper, Grand Slam are all awsome for there own reasons.

Grand Slam for "the way he should of been in the first place"

SAW viper "just plain perfect even though its a repaint"

Monkey Wrench "dual scorpion shotguns, trench coat(looks stupid with out it
though),brass nuckles, dreadnoks for life shirt

Low Light "now thats a sniper rifle, added articulation in the wrist, leg map,
don't like the goggles though.

as a side note David Salvo Hassle "just looks the character

Picked up Trooper, Med Alert, and SAW Viper at TRU (three figures I probably wouldn't have bothered to order on line but when I see them in the stors and can actually hold them, I'm more tempted to buy) so I bought them.
I was surprised at how much I like SAW Viper. I was never crazy about the original and this was a good update. And just think, Hasbro, if you'd have never put him in stores I never would have known! Good move.

04-12-2006, 04:54 PM
i havent gotten a low light yet, but might.
grand slam- i love this figure!

orange ? i will never really understnad, but for some reason i still think this is one of the best figs yet

04-16-2006, 09:29 PM
I like Grand Slam and Low-Light.

I like the cobra trooper except for the mask being the same color as the suit.But any how I think hasbro should keep the ARAH line going for awhile.

04-19-2006, 01:19 PM
S.A.W. Viper. I know he's an exact copy of Roll Bar (even his head :confused:!?!?). I know he can't sit down (this bothers me more with Roll Bar though, seeing he has to sit down in order to drive). But I really think his a kick-butt figure. His colors are great. I was always a fan of the original, well not really a fan he is pretty mean, but as a bad guy he rocks. At first I was dissapointed that the DTC's gun was so tiny compared to the original, then I picked up the originals gun. What the heck?!? That things huge. It's just goofy. So yes I think that the new S.A.W. Viper is way cool.

05-15-2006, 12:37 AM
I like Low Light, but my fav. is Monkey Wrench. Dreadnoks rule!!!!!

i do like monkey wrench goes well with the comic pack of the dreadnok:eek:

then grand slam:rolleyes:


09-11-2006, 09:34 PM
Monkeywrench followed by the Trooper.

12-07-2006, 02:29 PM
It was hard for me to pick, I went with the S.A.W. Viper, but I also like the Cobra Trooper, I have both and they both make great additions to my Cobra Legion.

Monkeywrench is a bad bastard!

12-23-2006, 12:08 AM
Had to go with Lowlight. Great sculpt with good detail. Weapons don't fit to great, but I can live with that.

01-08-2007, 09:49 PM
I had to go with Grandslam in the end.

01-17-2007, 07:59 PM
Cobra Trooper all the way!
