I've stuck to my guns and bought the ones I like and no more.
Even when there was nothing new and got the itch to get the others, I didn't do it.

Still sitting this line out. The only exceptions fir me are the exclusives that are ME or ARAH based. The main line does NOTHING for me. Might get a Pit Commando just for the gear but I would have to remove the post office logo from the shield.

I pretty much have stuck to my guns on the ROC stuff, with the exception of the Monkeywrench Tunnel Rat pack.

i didnt stick to my guns, i gave in and bough most of the figures/ got a pit for my birthday. got some vehicles, i wish i had postponed buying, there will be alot of discounts after x mas i think/hope..... 25th spoiled me, wasnt feeling roc, and gave in. i would by a figure or two here or there. i never went in and bought like 15 figures at a time.
dont worry be happy!

That said, I'm like most of the rest that have posted on here and can say I have picked up the ones I felt fit in with my regular Joes. So far that has included the following:
SE's (regular movie version, PP (x3), and Target Rescue 4 Pack Exclusive).
Hawk (RES Duke Flight Pack Version. I used this figure for a Flint custom though).
Baroness - PP.
Gung - Ho (RES 2 pack version).
Tunnel Rat (Same).
Monkey Wrench (Same).
So 21 figures overall, and I also picked up the Steel Crusher (uh 'cause it ROCKS!) and the Rhino (ditto!).
Now, that said....I'm still hunting an Arctic SE's (not sure I'm buying though), a Night Adder, and OF COURSE the City Strike SE's which I plan on probably buying 2 of and a Snow Cat.
I think overall you can't sit there (but I know people are) and say you ABSOLUTELY won't buy ANY ROC just because it doesn't say 25th on it or whatever....that is, if you are a Joe collector overall. I consider myself a picky Joe collector and I found some great figures in this line but I was pretty open minded about it too.

my guns were and are to always to buy what i like, just like every other line POST 2000. arah is another matter. that's what it should be anyway, nobody's forcing you to buy anything. it just so happened, i liked 98% of the 25th line and i bought a shit-ton of everything. most of the roc figs i have purchased have been cobra, some in many multiples, and a few joes here and there. i have all the vechs except the pit and the a-dillo. i would have bought crap-tons more of everything, had they been a little more reasonably priced. i'd army build steel crushers if i could.
i guess the only things i disliked when the line premiered and haven't grown on me since, are the blue camo figs, especially zartan. i have every incarnation of zartan since 84 including some terrible foreign versions and i re-f'n-fuse to buy that pos, no thanks. that, my friends, is an abortion.

My ROC figures that I have purchased:
City Strike Snake Eyes
City Strike Duke
Artic Storm Shadow
Paris Pursuit Baroness
Now, that's pretty reasonable. But let me illustrate this.
How many are displayed on my shelf?
City Strike Snake Eyes
Everything else got kitbashed. Anyone wanna tell me why?

I got a Cover Girl simply as I figure we'll never get a 25th/ME version of her,same with Thunder and i plan on getting a Monkeywrench & Heavy Metal/whatever they're calling him now.
Other than that the whole line can sit in the clearance bin for all I care.
Most of it just reminds me of the ARAH days from '88 onwards,which is pretty much what killed my interest back then.
