I have to agree with you a little on that Fred. I really do think they could have sculpted new heads for the Gung-Ho, Leatherneck and Cutter. Using the some body parts isn't that bad for me, but PLEASE give us new Head Sculpts!!!!!!
Unlees they are going to try an put a spin on the story line and say those 3 figures are triplets now. I guess it could work then!!!!

Some repaints are great while some repaints are really off. I doo agree for hasbro to re-use body parts just as long as it fits the character figure. I hate repaints so much because instead off giving us new figures, all we get are what we had in a new color. the bad thing about it is that the newer versions usually looks bad compared to the first release.
During the 80's all the parts and faces were so generic and the thing that differentiated the chararcters was actually the paint schemes but right now, the 25th anniversary joes are made to look as close as possible to the cartoon/comic rendition of the characters but lately hasbo has been mixing and matching the parts and color and not give us the same excitement/enjoyment thatwe all had when they released the joes and cobra 5 character sets.
I'm an avid fad of Hasbro toys. I just hope they just bring out more characters and not newer versions of what they made already in new color.
I hope the designers in Hasbro are as avid as we all are. I would like to have their jobs, but what the hell. I just hope they get better head sculpts!
Proper color schemes and appropriate designs.
P.S. I really hate the Cutter figure! We all know that what he wears is a baseball cap!

I don't mind the reusing of body parts. I just don't want to see the same figure over and over. Flint, Tiger Force Flint, etc..
If reuse the same character, I want to see something completely different: Flint, Cobra Disguise Flint.
I don't like that the Torpedo in the Officer's 3-Pack is basically just a repaint. Put a new outfit on 'em. Put 'em in SEAL uniform for out-of-water combat missions. Something like that.
If going to use the same character, do something different with them.
