I just received my 1992 Cobra Earthquake vehicle in the mail today. It was just as grotesquely neon and packed with spring-loaded missiles as I remembered from my childhood. I hate to say it, but I think I kinda like the neon colors and spring-loaded weapons. Granted, I was in grade school during the 1990s and was in the prime age for GI Joes, so I may have more nostalgia for this period than most.
Does anyone else have a soft spot for fluorescent color schemes and spring-loaded missiles?

Just not on my G.I.Joe stuff, lol.
Cobra has won. The Battle is over. Or is it?

Neon was all the rage from 1985-1995, then grunge hit.
I see the figures as merely a product of the times.

Not really a fan of neon, but I love spring loaded missles. Makes playing more fun and dynamic. I used to have the Battle Wagon and the missles would just mow down joes!

Not at all dude, but thats the point. Different waves, different fans. If your stoked and feeling the nostalgies, thats all that matters.

I like spring loaded weapons for battle purposes. The 90's Neon characters I cant really get into. Wow those were some odd combo's of color. But that was also way past my "original" Joe buying days.

Never a fan of neon color or spring-loaded weapons.
I hope Hasbro could have invest their money and motivation into other aspects.

I like the characters and the sculpts that came from the era. Change the colours and give different weapons, and you've got a lot of things that could be updated to awesome 25th style figures/vehicles.
