The drop and fire missiles of the Earthquake were kinda cool at first. They were more like mortar rounds and had good range. But the notches of the firing pins wear over time causing misfires.
I loved my Earthquake not so much for the colors but for the fact that it was a payloader. Many a joe fort and vehicle were destroyed within its bucket. And it was a terror of the Tonka construction site.

I don't like it at all. The spring fired weapons I don't even bother with....toss em right in the trash.

If you asked me this years ago when I was still a kid then maybe I'd say yeah, but as of today..nope!
Actually now that I think about it, even as a kid I never really got that much of a kick out of the spring loaded stuff and I think that's because they would eventually always get lost. I'd usually just take the missile itself and fly it around myself instead of shooting it.
The neon colors, eh I didn't like that era where there was neon green, orange, and pink crap everywhere *shudder* was also the time of the fanny pack.

I absolutely hated the neon colors. Ice Cream Soldier, the pink ninja weapons. Yuck. I don't hate the spring loaded missile launchers as much. I don't like them, but they are less offensive to me than the garish colors.

I wouldn't so much say I liked the neon colors but I got into Joe's in '90 when I was 10 so that was right around the time they all started coming out. Its what I was just use to so I didn't mind. I was just happy I was getting to play with Joe's at all.
The spring loaded missile launchers were great, to me at least. Like others said, it added more playability for me.

Yes, Toxo-Viper is my favorite Joe figure, also I enjoy the Earthquake with VvV Heavy Water figures driving it. So not only do I like Neon figures & Spring loaded weapons but I also like New Sculpt figures
