I haven't purchased a ARAH figure in about 15 years. Ever since I stopped playing with them as a kid. I was trying to be a completest with the 25th line, but am somewhat loosing interest. I think I will just be buying the figures that ment something to me as a kid. Hell, I'm even thinking about selling most of these 25th figures that I have and getting out.
I'm the type of person that goes from one hobby to the next. I might be working on or buying stuff for my vette for months then start buying stuff for my truck for months. It just so happens that I've been buying these modern GI Joes for months now. I figure here in a few months my interest will be else where and I will not be on this forum much if any.
I'm a member of a Corvette forum with over 8,000 posts. I haven't visited that forum in a good while. I'm 28 and had 3 Corvettes at this time last year and a box full of ARAH Joes in my storage building.

I sold off all my RAh stuff last year on ebay- and as far as the 25th goes I am only getting figures, I have bought some of the vehicles packs and then sold off the vehicles (I just dont have the room), I am trying to keep a collection of figures that are just updates of the old ones (and new characters I like- such as the new CB versions), but I hated tiger force and such as a kid so those will be easy passes going forward. WOnt be getting Trakker, the Ninja Ku or anything like that going forward.

RAH is always where it's going to be for me, the 25th is a nice side line to collect.

I have most of the figures and vehicles from when I was collecting as a kid. This was in 1982. 83, 84, etc.... I lost one full box of figures and parts (missiles, weapons, etc...) and of course the figures I lost where all the best ones (original 82 Snake Eyes, original Storm Shadow, Fire Fly, Zartan, etc....).
I hadn't collected GI Joe since I was a kid but kept it all incase one day I had a son. Well that day has come (he is 3-1/2 years old) he is still kind of little for GI Joe but I couldn't wait any longer.
So, I was going to try and get all the old stuff I was missing until I found out about the 25th line. Man was I excited.....heck I still am excited. I am trying to collect everything they put out BUT as many of you know, 1) it is very hard to find the stuff and 2) have the money to get the stuff. My wife wants to kill me. I had told her I was almost done collecting The Batman, Batman the Animated Series and Justice League toys. Now I am all excited about the 25th line. She isn't happy to say the least.
So I am only going to collect the 25th stuff. It’s better then the old toys in every way, they are far more detailed looking, far more real looking, have all the same figures as the old ones (and then some), plus now they are coming out with all the old vehicles too. That was going to be the one really bad thing about the 25th line, but not anymore. I just hope they make ALL the old vehicles.
Wow, I was really going on there wasn't I. Ok, I'm done now

I have all the ARAH and early 2000's stuff I want so I can concentrate all my resources on 25th goodies! It's nice knowing that I have the freedom (until TF Animated toys hit our shores, anyway!)
