I was browsing the TFW2005 forums when I saw a thread with the first images of the 25th box sets, and I mostly liked them at that time because I thought the boxes looked wicked cool.
Then I forgot them for a while until I saw the Cobra box set at a Toys R Us while looking for a CC Bumblebee. I then bought the box, fell in love, and then went back to buy a hooded CC and Wave 1 Storm Shadow.
But I still regret how I passed on a Flint which was right next to the hooded CC.

I learned about them from the reports coming from Toy Fair in Feb 07...
And yes they did stop releasing Star Wars. From about 86/7- July of 95. The rerelease of the Star Wars figures in 95 reminds me so much of how the 25th Joes are going... Except the Joes are going at a very brisk pace. Star Wars was only putting out maybe 20 figures per year for a while. Of course that number grew quickly, especially recently.

I found some at Wal-Mart last year (August?) while looking at the toy section with my kids. They thought I was nuts for buying toys for me instead of them.

Same as Facehammer, I saw the pics from TF 07 and kne I had to buy the two packs. Once I saw they were releasing single carded figures too, I had to get them as well.
I stopped collecting Joes right after the ECO Warriors (except for a Ninja Force Scarlett because I thought it was funny to have had my first and last figure be the same character) and then the 15th Anniversary I picked up Duke w/Silver Mirage Motorcycle. I saw all the Spy troops and the likes but the 25th captured my interest because they were the Joes I remembered. So now I own all the "Modern Era" essentially replacing the old school ones my Mother gave away long ago.

Just happened to be in a local K-Mart, walking by the toys and noticed a Storm Shadow, Snake Eyes and a Flint..Picked them up and then later at Wal-Mart? noticed the 5 packs and bought them up too..Then discovered there were more on the way!

Read about them on Fwoosh. Only wanted to get my faves, Snake Eyes, Cobra Commander, and Destro (At the time only announced was the box sets and wave 1). Later saw Zartan and Shipwreck (more of my faves from when I was a kid). Saw pics of the released box sets and really wanted them, but did not want to spend the money to get my favorite Snake Eyes and CC (both v1). Called TRU and they held a Snake Eyes v2 and SS v2 for me. At that point I was hooked, and my wife was upset (she didn't understand what my fascination with Joes were). Soon after than I got the boxsets and did not open them. I saw Flint and figured I would get him and return him later, since i only wanted to get my faves. Well after they started announcing they were gonna continue on I was hooked. Decided to open my box sets and Flint. My wife has finally embraced my Joes, and I am not pretty much a completist. They are my favorite toys out now.

Right place, right time. I was fed up with waiting for the Beta Fighter from Toynami and decided to start collecting the mass pieces that Joes are. Then it was this fuss about the new line and I was hooked when I first saw them in person.
Anything but to face ourselves as we are...
