I don't know if it's because I grew up with them, but is anyone else more excited about the 30th anniversary figures because it looks like they're going back to the original backers?

They don't look like the originals, but a modern interpretation of them, but yeah I love them!

I'm really excited about the Skystricker!!! I'm glad they've made some of the older figs in the ME style and are making new figs too!!! I can't wait!

No, not really. I was excited by the 25th but the idea has long faded since POC came out. I want the family to grow instead of having the same ol relatives keep visiting and wearing out their welcome.
And yes, I did grow up with Joe and collected from the beginning but I don't want no Star Wars syndrome in my Joes.

This.

I love these new-old figures. I like Airthight being 100% vintage design, but most other characters won't hold well their looks today.

But they look great because the sculpt/paint/playability is incredible.
So if we get new characters, with this quality, the better then.

I guess I'm still in love with the old style file cards and artwork.

I'm indifferent about it. I keep the cards, but it doesn't matter to me what they look like.

What original backers? You mean Battle Corps? A little I guess. Regardless, the new ones are still nice. Then again, so is POC.

I like the new backers they'll look great in my trashcan after a cut out the file cards.

Ah, sorry, i didn't realize you where talking about the filecards.

They do look way better than than the RoC square-styled cards.
But i'm more interested on the figures than the piece of cardboard lol

Backers?

The filecards? Showing the entire wave's portraits?

Huh?

I'm glad we are getting updated classics that they did not get to do in the 25th.

to be clear it's the entire backers, including the filecards and yes, the portraits of the figures. I loved it when they were marketing like that again
