i think there could be some room for improvement but over all i am very happy with the line so far. i do agree though, we need less repaints and more new charactors. more vehicles would be nice too. over all though, hasbro has done a great job.

Overall, figure quality-wise, abso-freakin-lutely!
I can nitpick selection, but it's only been 14-18 months (can't remember) and that's nothing compared to the 9 or so years that comprised my first collection.
I can nitpick vehicle selection, but again, the line is still young.
I can nitpick distribution (seriously, Hasbro, google "Troop Building." Everything you need to know about how you should package your cases will be found within those results. Now produce the crap out of some Cobra Troopers, EELs, Divers, etc.)
But all whining aside, this has been such an absolutely fantastic line. I am dying to see what's next, finish buying what's out now, and I'm begging and pleading that the line continues in full force for another year or two.
edit: And so help me GOD if I have to buy another CC or Duke. ENOUGH already.
I see what you did there.

Yup. All I need is Low Light, Dial Tone and a better Falcon and I will be 100% happy. LOL.

overall, yes. you take the good and the bad. I pretty much only buy the ones I want at this point. at first I would get each single, CP, and vehicle, but not now.
I passed on some singles in waves 12 and 13, CPs in waves 5 and 6, all of CP wave 7, and vehicle wave 3. I only bought the TRU Night Ops 5-pack, but passed on the other 3 and likely will pass on the next 2. I did get 5 of the 6 SRO packs. No UBP, no Tiger Rattler, no Python Conquest, no Resolute 5-pack, and none of the movie stuff that we've seen so far. I'm hoping the Night Raven and Pit are sweet though.

I'm in the minority here. Since they are not compatible with ARAH Joes, my answer is NO. I have no use for the figures. Bring back the ARAH comic 3 packs please.

Yes! What a dream come true to see those Joes back on the pegs. God bless the 25th line!

I love the line. I really think they have done an outstanding job in the little time they had. But I’m worried.....very worried, about the future.
Like many have said I’m worried about the movie and what it may do to our line. Like someone said, if the movie is a hit they might do away with the 25th line and focus on the movie line. Or the movie will flop and all the Joe stuff will end.
Another big worry is the new vehicles coming out for the movie. It seems like the majority (myself included) of the fan base wants nothing to do with the movie toys unless older cooler vehicles are released in it. The best GI Joe toys came out between 1982 and 1985-86. Nothing after could compare too those years….. until now. And how did they finally make something as good and as popular as the 82 to 86 line? By making the 82 to 86 line!....again. And still I think Hasbro won't get it. They need to stop designing the vehicles themselves and start looking back to real military vehicles for there designs. Like they did for the years 1982 to 1986. Otherwise, we get things like the "Pogo Ballistic Battle ball", "Road Toad" or "Buzz Boar". So please Hasbro, you know what works and what doesn’t. As the saying goes don’t fix/change it if it’s not broken. And that’s what you did in 1987 and I hope you don’t make the same mistake twice. And looking at that snowmobile vehicle thing from the upcoming movie line your leading me to think you are heading down the same old path to poor sales and angry fans. Prove me wrong Hasbro, please prove me wrong. You have done so good till now, don’t blow it.

Nope! I think the line pretty much sucks overall. I gave up trying to find them. After they released the B.A.T. I totally lost interest.
Ludicrous amount of repaints
Impossible to find in stores
Chase variants blow!
Hardly ever make my favorite characters
Vehicles should be all new molds not rehashed crap
Too expensive (not worth $7-$10 each)
Cases are tiny & the stores usually only get 1 at a time
Only 1 of each figure per case is RETARDED!!!!
This line is a total pain in the ass to try to collect. No fun at all.

yep.. 25th fine in total.
my only gripes were the recolored figs and unnecessary figures (arctic snake-eyes, cobra-disguised flint, etc.)
