The original 13 Joes are Hawk, Steeler, Snake Eyes, Scarlett, Clutch, Zap, Grunt, Short Fuze, Stalker, Flash, Grand Slam, Breaker, and Rock n Roll.
We've gotten everyone or will be getting everyone except for Zap and Short Fuze even though all they'd need is the Snake Eyes body and a new harness and heads with their trademark weapons.

I actually would like to see this figures released.
doc (single carded)
Baroness (single carded less mongoloid looking)
Copperhead (single carded)
BAT sometime before 2020 please
law and order
iron grenadiers maybe
I really couldn't care about anything after 87 really.
Though it kind of does make sense for hasbro to release figures from the different eras as I am sure everyones list will be different.
I guess my only 2 complaints would be, make sure hasbro releases the most popular figures first. If you are going to do later releases, shockwave and jinx have to be in there.
As for wave 10 I am sure it will consist of the following:
Duke - with sunglasses
Cobra commander - with two shaking fists
Snake Eyes - version #68
Storm Shadow - with different weapons
Cobra trooper slightly different colour blue
ice cream soldier - just to really piss off the fans.

Serious question for you guys:
Do you think the excess amount of repaints and multiples of the same figures will end up killing the interest of this line before most of the 50-60 characters that a lot of people want to see end up getting made?
I know that I am picking and choosing from now on, as I am not really interested in buying more dukes, and excessive numbers of troopers.

I'm still blowing and going. I thought I'd stop after the 25th logo was gone but I'm all in unless the figures get too silly. For instance I hope this Bazo guy is not the one with the funky mask that a few of you linked. I haven't seen too much to turn me away but the price hikes do suck!!!

Repaints of a line this well produced I feel is a natural occurance. You can't put out a line of 3-8 figures every few months and have every figure be completely unique. I wish this weren't the case, but the economics of action figure producing being what they are these days, repaints are plain and simple going to happen.

Why such a problem with army builders? Everyone's bitching about Para-Vipers and Bazooka soldiers now, assuming that they are just existing figures with new weapons. You do not know that, so just chill out and wait and see. I'm more interested in those 2 than anything else on the list.
Everyone has their favorites and characters they don't like. To presume that YOUR mental list is the way Hasbro should do it is arrogant and ignorant. This is the "25th anniversary line" a celebration of 25 years of Gi Joe, not the first 3 years and nothing else. Like all things, buy the ones you like and skip the rest, that's what I do. But I don't come on here and complain because they made a figure I didn't want, but haven't made so-and-so yet.
Hasbro is not stupid. It is not a fact that this line will end when movie figures come out, it may run along side or start back after the movie hype dies down. Do you really expect them to "blow their whole wad" in the first year? They want to continue this line for as long as possible. You do not do that by making all the best most popular characters first and then hoping the interest is still there to release others. Common sense dictates that as collectors we need to have something to look forward to. So they will need to spread out the favorites over the life of the line. If the ultimate goal is to make new versions of everything plus new characters, do you really think they would be so stupid as to re-release them in the same order that eventually killed interest? "Oh lets make all the cool figures now, then next year we'll put out all the shit ones, that will go over great." I'm so sick of hearing the complaints everytime a list comes out, because someone's favorite figure was not on it. As if the existence of what ever figure you don't want somehow cock-blocked you from getting the figure you do want. It doesn't work like that.
I for one would like to see them create new characters as well. But if most people had their way this would never happen. Too many people are like "Give me all the figures I want now, so I can stop collecting them." Yeah, that makes great business sense. "Let's satisfy all of the demand right now, so we have nothing left to offer in the future."
