I'm not a big fan of keeping my figures in MOC condition, but I have a feeling I'll start to do it now. I'm a buy these figures and start my custom wall paper like alot other collectors do. I can't keep myself from buying them. I think these figures will (a whole bunch of curse words)...be great.

IMO the main problem with the movie figs is that except for perhaps Baroness they have almost no connection to the ARAH figs, so IMO it will only appeal to either new people or the people who buy anything G.I. Joe.
IMO they should have just started a new cartoon with the Resolute line, toned it down for kids and aired it on Cartoon Network like Clone Wars, because IMO the Resolute line although something really different; still feels like G.I. Joe to me and therefore I will probably buy more Resolute stuff.
And from what I've seen so far, from a quality standpoint, the movie figs don't look as good as the 25th or Resolute figs. IMO figs cost too much now to buy something that is poorly made.

I'm looking forward to them. Both from a "new design" standpoint, and from custom parts potential. I think a lot of people forget that over 25 years, Joe diversity, along with "newness" has kept it alive. People may not like VvsV or Spy Troops after the fact, but the truth is, if it weren't for those, we probably wouldn't have gotten the 25th line.
The movie line is a good extension, both to keep the line alive and to bring in new kids and collectors who see the movie.

I can't wait. I want the PITT so bad, not really caring what it looks like, I just want a Joe command center.
I'm loving that we're getting another Armadillo, saves me having to paint one up myself.
I love the little accessories, like Baroness' attache case and Shipwreck's diving accessories.
Lots of potential for customs.
And I like that we'll have new headsculpts, so can make new Joes to fit into the Joeverse and not have them look the same as others.
