I have very little (other than parts for customizing) interest in late series characters and ludicrous variants from a tired line of toys. There are plenty of good characters left to produce from Early in the RAH line.
Additionally, one thing I do like seeing--various Cobras like the Paratrooper and RPG (Bazooka) trooper. It doesn't bother me to see a lot of figures using the same basic body IF they keep the accessories changing--Vests, Webgear, Helmets, weapons, packs, etc. The same holds true for Joes, but to a lesser extent. If they produce a Short Fuse using the same body they used for Hawk, but provide the proper accessories (different web gear), I'm happy with that. I sure as heck would rather see that, than a unique body for Croc Master or some other unique character.
That being said, I DO want to see a few unique Joe Molds--for significant characters at least.

Count me in for one of those guys that want 82-87. With that said, I can dig figures that aren't from those years if they (hasbro) do a good job. I for one love the wraith and croc master figure, and are more than happy with those than the 18th version of SS, SE, CC, or duke.
Granted, I would still like to see, recondo, alpine, jinx, covergirl, shockwave, tunnelrat, outback, and a few of the others. I am also hoping for a single carded, quick kick, dusty, copperhead, and scrap iron.
I can also understand peoples dismay with a flint in cobra uniform and a pilot scarlett over some of their other favourites. I for one like the pilot scarlett as they it looks cool, but yes, its a shame that we can't get even a repaint of a new figure as opposed to another version of flint.
Hasbro isn't going to make everyone happy, and more often than not there are not many figures that EVERYONE here on the boards hates, maybe serpentor, and wave 2 lady jayes face. So overall, they have to be doing a pretty good job.
Besides who's to say Hasbro isn't going to make the figures we all like eventually, they just aren't making them right now....

In regards to Pilot Scarlett...good I say. I'm all for variants on Major characters (not Tiger Force or other similar repaints). Cobra Flint on the other hand...I can do that in about 15 Seconds by switching heads.

Hasbro said Matt Tracker was made, becasue one of the designers(or someone on the Hasbro team) is a MASK fan and he was trying to see if Hasbro could bring the line back and was basicly told "No", so he made the figure as a tribute to the line, a one-time deal.

I am definitely with those of you looking for the early years and just want to see some more from that time before yet another Snake Eyes, CC, Duke, etc. The new versions of older figs are a cool idea (Para-Viper, Pilot Scarlett). As to why Croc-Master has gotten yet another tribute (as with VvV), I don't know. I felt 87 wasn't a great year for Cobra personnel.
And to answer a question early in this thread, Croc didn't have a huge role in the comics. He was Cobra Island security during the civil war, but that was about it.

I want a "Toxo Zombie". I can't explain it, I just do. Some nice figures came out post '87 and I'd hate to see them forgotten about amidst the fuss to get the 'originals' released.
