Went to Target tonight and found an RoC figure called the GIJoe Pit Commando which I snagged right away for good reason, It had an assload of good accessories and no big spring loaded missle launcher. Here's the breakdown.
-All Black Steel Brigade Helmet
-Boonie Cap with Night Vision Goggle
-Bomb Squad Vest
-Big Ass Backpack (?)
If you see it you must get it!

Don't feel guilty in any way. You don't like it, don't buy it. Simple as that.
Did you buy every figure back in the ARAH days or just the ones that you liked?
It's all about what you like. If you like a figure, get it, if you don't like a figure, don't get it.
Nothing to feel guilty about.

I still support the Joe cause! Buying ARAH and more 25th/ME and will see what the movie brings. I'm like you though so far because I too have not made any purchase of ROC toys.
There are some that grab my attention but all in due time.
Anything but to face ourselves as we are...

I used to buy one of everything. That is ending on the ROC line. I've only bought a few so far: Lt. Stone, Hawk, Helix, Flash, Pit Guy, Fat Heavy Duty...
...can't bring myself to buy any of the ugly, horribly designed and sculpted Cobra Troops.
$8 a pop for them helps make the decision a little easier. That price is outrageous for what you get. The 25th line was only $5 each... and they were better quality - way better. Stupid soft plastic should never be used on these things...

i said i wasnt going to buy any, but i have bought 2 pit commandos, helix, stone and hawk to use as a custom, i got breaker to probably for a custom. and i got the ice viper. i have found these to be really well made figures. i think people who say its a bad line just arent willing to give it a chance. the helix figure is a really good figure. the ice viper is good to, fits right in with all the 25th snow troops for cobra. i know hard core collectors are stuck in the eighties, but in order to survive Gi joes have to change as the times change. Give it a chance if you see a figure u like buy it. u probably will be happy with it.

Minus most of the Blue Pajama wearing figures... and the koopa vipers.. the line is pretty nice. ALL of the figures so far have been well made.
I do not agree with the $7.99 pricepoint, but with the sales etc so far I've managed to get every one of my figures for $5 or less.

The pricepoint is out of Hasbro's hands. That's a retailer thing. My Wal-Mart has 'em for $7.88, a whole 11 cents cheaper, lol.
Yeah, it sucks that they're $7.99 a figure, we all wish they could be cheaper, but it's not something Hasbro has control over, so bitch to the retailers.
