98% satisfied. All I need is a new Falcon and Scarlett and I will be 100% satisfied. And If we ever get a ARAH Dial Tone and Lowlight I will be 102% satisfied. LOL.

I have to join the minority who's not entirely satisfied. Many of my reasons would echo those above (repaints, back screw, painting quality control, etc), the other reason will probably have me sticking my neck out all alone...
I don't want my old figures... I don't need to relive my youth. Give me something new and modern. I can see on the forum that there are traditionalists out there who want the figure "just as I remember him/her", but me, I want to see what these figures would look like had they been soldier figures created and designed today. My favorite figures are the original V2 Snake eyes (greyish body with knight visor), the TRU air 3pack Wild Bill, Para-viper, Eels, Snow Job and CP Firefly. They are close enough to the spirit of the original designs, but different enough to make them "fresh yet very familiar." (I for one actually liked the DD Zartan released over the "classic" look version). I'm finding myself kit-bashing the various parts from various figures to make the figure I felt it should have been instead.
I would also like to see more removable helmets/headgear/etc and variety to the head sculpts (those where you see their faces). I'm a collector who only opens his figures (nothing remains on card or in box, sorry people) and when most figures show you the faces of the characters, there are the few that make me think "why did you cop out" - I'm thinking Barbecue, Mainframe, Alpine and Tripwire, to name a few.
My last gripe is the Target Exclusives. Unlike many here, I'm just a figure collector (I'm willing to sell my vehicles to anyone out there who wants them), so I like having all my "army" on display. Then there are the early Target exclusives that messed everything up - I'm talking to you Grand Slam, Crankcase, Slip-Stream specifically. Since you do not have stands, you seem so out of place (I have spare stands from the figures I've cannibalized, but it just isn't or looks the same as having an official name plate to stand on. Why cut costs on just those figures? I doubt they will be re-released anytime soon, so they'll be without stands. (if anyone on the forum know of ways to mod the lettering on the stands so they look like they came from the factory, please PM me).
Yeah, it was a gripe, but I am "happy" with the figures, I'm just not "satisfied" - I want and expect more from Hasbro!

Just seeing all those awesome looking single cards on the pegs again was worth the 25th line IMO. If the line ended tomorrow I'd be okay with it... the 25th line gave me a chance to relive parts of my childhood and to finally say a proper goodbye to G.I. Joe. Thanks Hasbro. The movie's still gonna suck though. LOL.

i think the articulation and card art make the sales. the detail is great, but overall i think the new figure 25th style is crap. i dont like the new foothole pegs, hands not holding guns and such and bent wobbly legs.

Overall I am very satisfied. Satisfied enough that the 25th line is probably the 1st line since I was a child, in ANY toyline that I've completed. Or have come damn close to! Its not just the figures that I was satisified with, but the entire comming of a community like this, the overall celebration of everything Joeverse, new comics, Resolute, the release of the original cartoon and of course a film.
These things may have all exsisted before, but I believe it was the 25th line itself that brought them to the forefront of the collector community. Having said that...
Yes I love these figures and vehicles. Could you ask for more then the Sting Raider?? Or H.I.S.S.? I think 98% of the figures, single carded, CP's and various sets included hit the bullseye. I didnt have too much of a problem displaying them the way I wanted on my shelves, a few gave me a hard time with holding their weapons, but nothing to gripe over. Repaints and stuff? ehhh..big deal. I waited my entire life to have a Joe collection again, you think I'm gonna complain about a friggin repaint or the fact that 99.9% of the time when you get a CP 1 of the 2 figures are weak? Dude, you get 1 kick ass fig, and one to use as a custom or whatever and you have Larry Hama writing a Joe comic using classic charecters in updated figure, the stuff is afordable, its fun, it brings me back and the only major gripe I have?.....I want more!!!

I'm very satisfied with the line. I think overall Hasbro has done an amazing job with it, considering it was just supposed to be 25 figures. I would like to see some good updates (Scarlett!) but I like what I have & really don't have a many complaints. And the complaints I have are small (did this line really need 4 Wild Bills?!?), but I love it just the same.
I hope it keeps going with the Resolute figures we've been seeing and the carded samples like Night Force Falcon & Zap.
Hasbro has to keep this line going. And I'll continue to support it as long as they do.

Yes. But... Some minor fixes like their hands, arm articulation and crotch. Would love more vehicles and continuing to release 25th figures/resolute/ROC figures all at once.
