i'm not into the nostalgia factor, that colours everything i'm about to say...
repainted opposing armies vehicles is lame...
is was lame 25 years ago and it's even lamer now.

The Tiger Rat was my favorite Joe toy when I was a kid.
I'm so glad they did this.
(I could do without the Wild Bill though)

hmm, not surprising since Hasbro basically said these were coming. I'm glad I got the original color ones. I'll probably pass on these unless I've got more extra cash than I expect. I'd rather save it for things I really want...like the Stinger.

I like 'em. But a fourth Wild Bill? Even with the nod to what could have been in the original line, doesn't make another one cool. Skystriker should've got some love. But I've got to have two of those Conquests, lol!

Anyone else excited that on the box is written "some assembly required?"
I'm betting this cuts their costs like crazy. Imagine how much longer in must take for the factory workers to put the vehicle together and then secure it to the packaging with eight hundred thousand, four hundred and twenty nine tiny rubber bands. I am looking forward to putting these together myself.

PLUS! Remember that if they just throw parts in a bag then they will rattle and scrape and bang around all the way from China to your home. So get ready for lots of nicks and scratches that would otherwise not be there with the prebuilt models. From a customizing point of view, I'd love unbuilt toys to paint then assemble. I guess it just depends on how the loose parts are packaged.
