I only know that the name of this thing is RWYB and that it's action, so let me have a guess at character roles if this becomes a thing with actual story.
From left to righ:
The MC.
The stoic, most capable girl.
The girl who acts like one of the guys most of the time.
The musclehead.
The whiny, weak guy.
The girly girl, gets the most attention as a romantic interest.
The classy guy.
The tomboy.

Overly attached girl

Class Ace, Kinda air-headed
Pompous bitch with room for character development.

Then is the MC stoic and the most capable? If she is then I only really missed with the lead role, as there's a large overlapping margin with the other defined ones.

ruby is certainly capable, being an absolute badass, but she kinda is a giddy and happy person rather than stoic

Then yay, my skills for character archetype recognition are just as sharp as ever.
That guy is just a trap with his jeans and armored hoodie making him out to be one of those everydude MCs.

Well, you see, what classifies someone as the MC, is the amount of character growth throughout the story. He has tons of room to grow, thus has a huge potential to become one of the main characters. Ruby, the girl to the left of John, the blonde guy, is currently the main character, as the story started out with her and has given more about her back story than anyone's thus far, plus, it's evident that there is much more to tell, and that most of this story revolves around her.

Actually, it's not uncommon for the MC to be the most stagnant character. What defines them as the MC is id they're the character the story resolves around.
Just look at Araragi from Bakemonogatari. We spend almost as much time away from his point of view as we do in it, his character hasn't changed the slightest and I don't think he's even beaten a single opponent in straight combat. Yet it's still clear to the viewer that this asshole's the MC.

From left to right:
Seemingly weak, fragile guy
Nervous wreck of a MC
Not at all a tomboy
No lines yet
Silent badass
friend of the badass
What about him seems classy? He hasn't had any lines yet
Prodigy
Snooty rich girl

You guys just can't seem to agree. You're saying the MC is a nervous wreck, the first guy said she was stoic, those are complete opposites.
And for the second girl, you're saying not a tomboy, the first guy said a tomboy while I simply deducted from her appearance that she spends more time with the boys than she does doing girly stuff.

And the guy I called classy was because his attire resembles a butler uniform.

its because he watched the series, while you didn't. there are two characters in this picture that don't have any lines at all, while there is still 1 MC that isn't in the picture

I was talking about the guys here disagreeing over whether or not I was right.

But yeah, I've watched it myself now. And I missed by quite a lot with Ruby, that guy in the green uniform and the redhead.

(Spoiler is for ep. 8) Well, at least that "super-kid" was kinda weak, being knocked out so easily, and the hyperactive girl is fawning over him hard.

Also in the lineup, the "super-girl" looked short, and short+redhead usually = tomboy. You should've seen my face when I saw she was a hot, friendly amazon.


And I wouldn't say John is whiny and weak, he's just a really clumsy and naïve everydude. Which was what I deducted from his design and why I thought he was the MC.

of course he was exhausted., he had to fight TWO GIANT ASS SNAKES before catching up to the rest of the group.

John, Ruby, Weiss and that redhead did fine though, even though John had spent more time being flung through the sky than staying on the ground, Ruby and Weiss had fought a bunch of monsters and passive-aggressively fighting eachother all the way and the redhead first spent a visible amount of energy unlocking John's aura then ran to the ruins with the scorpion on her tail.

I've merely watched way too much anime and spent way too much time on TVTropes lately. So I've kind of inadvertently trained myself to spot character archetypes, which isn't that much harder in lineups as it factors in on their design.

My guess is that they're just setting up the story for big stuff later on.   
It's not like with RvB. It has long running characters that don't need introductions.   
RWBY is an entirely new world, characters, everything, so it has to be paced a certain way.

because they are actually just bits of episodes. look at the titles. they have a name followed by a PART 1 or PART 2 on it. RWBY will be much better to watch all at the same time in a long movie or short episode binge. just wait for them to finish season one and then just go make a playlist on youtube about it and enjoy the night. just that easy
