Just too unrealistic for my Joe-verse.
Starting to build a dio!

I had gotten every single-carded figure until around '90 or '91 except Crystal Ball. I could never bring myself to get him.

I could never understand the popularity of Shipwreck. He was super annoying in the cartoon & obsolete in the comic.
I was never a huge fan of Alley Vipers with their day glow blue & orange. They had a cool shield & face mask, but that's about it.
Hit & Run was another character that I could never understand the huge following for. And for a guy who's family was killed in a car wreck, that's a pretty tragic code name...
And then comes Sgt. Slaughter. The day GI Joe jumped the shark. Every word he spoke in the TV series was like nails on a chalk board to me. And if GI Joe the movie was Sunbow's way to bow out of the series, they give 1/4 of the speaking lines to that retarded character?? So many classic characters never said a word & just hung around in the background, and 'ol Sarge gets tons of screen time. That never sat well with me.
Sorry for the rant, but I REALLY hated that waste. In WWF, he was cool.
In GI Joe, not so much..

I can't stand Duke. He just pisses me off. I can't stand him in resolute or the original cartoon.

I don't mean to upset you, and The Sarge was and still is a wrestling icon. And maybe if he was used in smaller doses, I'd have been ok.
But, like a lot of season 2 characters, was overused to the point of being crammed down your throat.
And like I said, there were plenty of un-used Joes that were background fodder in the GI Joe movie. And Sarge gets a major part.
Then again, we had to have "Big Lob" in the movie. he's so bad I ususally don't even count him. He may be the ultimate suck..

Star Brigade! Except Gears.
but the one thing I loathe more than anything is the SHARC with Deep-Six. Every version.. doesn't matter. He is a worthless figure. If his Armor came off it would be cool, but it doesn't. But the SHARC or its 5 incarnations is the worst toy ever. The canopy breaks, the guns get stuck and there is no where to sit, and a dude strapped to the outside would be crushed.

woah woah woah......
1. Dr. Mindbender is awesome, he's got royal purple pants, a big ass cape with a glittering cobra logo, and a monocle. Forget about pimp Destro, Mindbender is clearly the original pimp of the Joeverse.
2. Croc Master has a f***ing crocadile as part of his posse, thats 100 times more hardcore than all those lame ass dogs/wolfs/birds/boars that other figures roll around with.
3. Big Boa has a punching bag with the word "joe" stitched into it, and that's just cool.
4. Crystal Ball....well....hmmm.....yeah ok, I'll give you guys that one.

Add me to the Dreadnok list. The sad thing is that there are some seeds of potential sprinkled in the Dreadnok filecards, but instead they became comic-relief for the bad guys.
If they'd been portrayed as a genuinely mean biker gang with a lot of connections to organized crime, they could have been cool, and would have maybe served a little more purpose (A group to pull off "traditional crime" for Cobra).
And yeah, it never made sense that an omnicompetent supposed-badass like Zartan would give those mooks the time of day. Or even Zarana and Zandar. I've seen some attempts at rationalizing it (That Zartan likes being a big fish in a shallow pond, basically), but still.
On the Joe side, add me to the column that doesn't like Slaughter. I accept that he has his place in the mythos, but never cared for the character or his execution, except for his brief appearances in the Joe comic.
Plus, it never made sense that the Joe team had drill instructors on it. Drill instructors are for basic training and AIT, which the Joes would have been out of for a looooooong time. Professional special ops soldiers would laugh at a Drill Sergeant trying to grind them down. I can see Sarge and Beach-Head as "instructors" for Green-Shirt candidates running through whatever qualification program there is to get on the Joe team, but having them barking at folks that are already Joes is just nonsensical.

The entire Cobra-La regiment. Even though GI Joe had already taken a turn for the unrealistic with Zartan and Serpentor, THIS was the last straw for me in my early collection days.
