I found myself doing this with Croc Master and the Cobra Bazooka Trooper. I also hate the fact that HASBRO is make a crap load of repaints. But sometimes you feel like you have to buy it just again to complete your collection. How many re-paints of Snake-eyes and Storm Shadow do we need?

It encourages Hasbro to do a crappy job! Only buy stuff thats awesome, and it is all we will get. I hate completest they screw up the free market. completest are why we still get trash.

Yeah, I figure they might grow on me so I better get them while I can. Matt Trakker comes to mind.

I found the Resolute wave the other day and grabbed Duke, Cobra Commander, Cobra Trooper and the Blowtorch then promptly ignored the blueberry Firefly and the repaint Torch.

I do not. I know there are many people who do and It doesn't bother me at all BUT it is probably my #1 annoyance in the collecting community when people who do that complain as if they were forced to do it.... and yet still buy multiples. For crying out lout that is idiocy.

I have bought everything so far just because I want to say I have. It's kind of fun I guess. I buy all of the different figures and vehicles but not the different style of cards they come on. I guess that is where I draw the line.

I do, but I don't buy repaints. I buy them to complete the GI JOE team. I was an avid fan of the comics and toy, but not the cartoon. That being said, I was mostly only interested and even today in just the original 13.

I buy most Cobra figures - but never any that I don't like. Superfluous repaints for example - such as Python Patrol Crimson Guard and the Ninja Viper.
And I usually don't buy versions of specific non-trooper characters that, to my highly subjective view, aren't definitive. For example, Firefly v14's the only Firefly that I'll be deliberately purchasing in the Modern Era line, because of all the Modern Era Firefly figuress, v14 most resembles the original figure. :b
