you know what though... and this is especially true for film...
when a company 'loses' or 'destroys' original bits... someone... SOMEONE takes some of them. or they 'lost' them in a warehouse and itz only
a matter of time before they resurface. don't get me wrong...
I know that they do destroy (and lose) crap all the time... hell every company does... but ... be it
Orson Welles' "Magnificent Ambersons" full version or a gi joe Flash figure... then there's always hope. hehehhe.

And yeah I'd love more of the VvsV Neo-Vipers O-Ring of course their one of the better figures to come out of that line...maybe a better colro scheme than some of the ones they previously gave us, but yeah I could use a few more VvsV Neo's.

They did it with the crimson guard, storm shadow and cobra trooper tooling, those remande. They certainly got there moneys worth with repaints.
I'm kinda tempted by these I had allot of the comic pack vintage type figures and i loved those [but i lost them in a fire so i don't have any of my joe collection beyond 25th stuff now]. But i do feel allot of times they were ruined by makeing them to bright. It's an odd dumb thing hasbro does with comic packs and "comic" colors.
I know if i pick these up, then i'd go track down some of the old sets like cobra trooper set, zartan...
I actually like the duke they've done, because it's accurate to the card art.
I wish the ROC figures were at least repaints and not the exact same thing. Someone had a really good idea of painting the roc figures with classic colors i think that'd be pretty cool, cause i've seen some awesome customs that have done that.

I agree with those who posted those figure packs are an easy pass. I already have those figures and I do not need more. Try harder next time, Hasbro, these things suck.

A better example is of the Water Moccassin and Sky Hawk molds. What Hasbro did for the Modern Era line, make the Ghost Hawk and Sting Raider as all new molds, based on the vintage Sky Hawk and Water Moccassin, was cheaper than tracking down the original molds(possibly lost or destroyed), and trying to repair them. If anything the Ghost HAWK and Sting Raider also turned out better than their vintage predecessors.

They should do Past & Present 2 packs of yet to be released 25th ARAH figs. I would gladly pay 20 bucks for an updated 25th Low-Light or Footloose even if he comes with a crappy OG one that I do not want, just so I can fill out the ranks.
I don't think a single P&P Snow Job sold at my Target; IMO it has to be cheaper in the long run to produce a new product that a lot of people really want instead of re-releasing old stuff that hardly anybody wants.
