Not barging into every neutral thread going about the film to say (once again!) how they think it "sucked" should count as 'passing on ROC' too!
Ooo.. I'm a hypocrite!!

The other day, my girlfriend pointed to the stacks of unopened RoC figures in my comic room and said, "I thought you said you were only getting Snake Eyes". So no, I did not stick to my guns. Life's too short to worry about ruining childhood franchises and screwing up continuity, these figures rock.

i never promised not too, but i only bought a few.
the cobra paratrooper is awsome, one of the coolest figures ever i'd say.
shipwreck is more of a battle ready version and definately cool and worth picking up. he cant really go on everymission wearing bell bottoms can he?
the cobra hummer is one of my all time favorites.

I did'nt want any ROC figures at first, but then the urge to have "Movie Storm Shadow" and "Movie Snakeeyes" overtook me...oh, and Arctic Assault Snakeeyes was just plain cool, so I bought him too, so now all I'm looking forward to is the SNAKE Armor Set.
HEUTE G.I.JOE, MORGEN DIE WELT!

also this thread is about how sucky they are. as you can see most people agree.
why ask for another poll question way after the poll has ended?

Granted that I am new around here, but I never planned on buying ROC, and after seeing stuff on shelves, I have comfortably passed on every single thing.
For me, the nostalgic fun of buying Joe stuff is directly tied into the 25th style packaging - especially those 80's style filecards. Also, I display all my figs with the stands, so the ROC stands wouldn't fit in.
There's only one toy I would break my no-ROC rule for - a rerelease of the Flagg. Probably won't see that until the next movie comes out, I'd guess.

i think to movie was terrible. i think the majority of the figures blow. but there are some amazing figures in the line. i LOVE my pit. im going to get that star wars big 4 leg walker base. trash the stormtroopers and throw some cobra stickers on it.

I haven't bought any yet, and have decided to pass on ROC altogether. Maybe POC will drag me back... but if it resembles ROC too much in style or execution, probably not. I'm still having plenty of fun hunting down all the 25th figures I missed.

I actually reversed on my initial intention (pokemon stylez collecting) and started to re-think just who and what I wanted as the market started flooding with new Joe stuff.
I liked the movie and all, but I made the mistake of re-reading some of the comics, and was less interested in the new take on it all, and thus less enthusiastic about it. I skipped a bunch of figures (I still have no RoC Ripcord, and only PP Snake Eyes...although, somehow ended up with "french" Breaker), and am pretty satisfied with the ones I've got, with no real lingering desire to hunt many more (a few, CS Snake Eyes among them).
I've done the same with the vehicles, grabbing the ones I really liked (and among those there are actually a few new favorites, truth be told), and skipping tripe like the "Night Raven".
Basically: if it doesn't compliment my initial collection, Ima pass on it. I think the Doctor and Commander are the only exceptions to this...but I skipped over most of the movie Cobras.
Not only are you cripplingly ignorant, you whine about it as well.
