People, I'v been giving more attention lately to my GIJoe 25th/ME collection, and so I'll be openning threads asking questions about figure versions and stuff. Living outside the US can sometimes be a pain to get some figures, and I'm trying to go for the ones I really like best first. So I ask all of you to be a little sensible and sensitive as to my questioning around. I hope I'm not too annoying at any time.
There are many cool figures that I still want to get, but as I have to set some priorities, I'll go for them first. But sometimes it's really hard to make up your mind, so any comments or suggestions will be appreciated.
My first one has been posted here: http://www.hisstank.com/forum/g-i-jo...re-so-far.html.
The second one is in this very same thread:
In your opinion, which is the coolest/best 25th/ME Beachhead figure so far? And why?
Thank you all for your coments, suggestions and most of all, for your patience.

I like the comic pack Beah Head the best, the one that comes with Dataframe.

I like the HoH beachhead... lol. So I guess that's 1 vote for each type so far. I like the weathered boots, and all of the gear that comes with him.

As a big Beachhead fan, I'd have to go with the comic pack version.

v10 (Single Card) - YOJOE.COM | Beachhead
v11 (Comic Pack) - YOJOE.COM | Beachhead
v12 (Hall of Heroes) - YOJOE.COM | Beachhead
All three are excellent figures. All have solid designs, and are of excellent overall quality.
Personally, I like v11 and v12 better than v10, because v11 and v12 better resemble the original '86 figure. And of v11 and v12, I prefer v12. v12 doesn't come with the alternate unmasked head that v11 does, but v12 slightly resembles the original '86 figure more than v11 does (because v12 has gray ammo clips on its vest), v12 has a backpack (v10's, which v11 doesn't), v12 has both v10's black rifle and v11's gray rifle (with clips), v12 has a black pistol (v11's is gray), and v12 has a cool paint wash on its boots that looks like mud.
Here are some reviews of v11 and v12:
v11 by Eopie Herder - http://www.hisstank.com/forum/g-i-jo...me-review.html
v11 by fireflyguy (pics are missing) - http://www.hisstank.com/forum/g-i-jo...must-have.html
v12 by Steel Brigade - http://www.hisstank.com/forum/g-i-jo...beachhead.html
Edit: I can't find a review for v10. I don't guess the forum search feature goes back that far. :/

I prefer the 2nd run of the original 25th versionb ~ more realistic coloring, fixed crotch and just overall great!
i know it's more ARAH accurate, but i can't stand the head or colors on the Comic Pack/Hall of Heroes version. I like the first ones vest better too.
My 25th Most Wanted List:
1. Tunnel Rat <-CHECK! 2. General Hawk (v2)<-CHECK! 3. Leatherneck <-CHECK(kinda...)
4. Jinx 5. Dusty <-CHECK! 6. Snow Serpent <-CHECK! 7. Tele-Viper <-CHECK(kinda...)
8. Falcon<-CHECK (kinda...) 9. Footloose <-CHECK! 10. Recondo <-CHECK!
9 down, 1 to go ~ but i really want a new Leatherneck and Falcon
