I bought one each of the single carded 25th action figures to keep MOMC plus army builders and others to open for displays, but now that Bro Job is making things like Pilot Scarlett, Wraith, and Matt Trakker I will be more selective about what I get instead of getting whole waves. Basically I'll keep getting MOMC samples of action figures like the Eel and Airborne that have vintage counterparts but things like the Para-Viper and Wraith are like VvV The Sequel to me. I understand why Bro Job wants to add diversity to the line with new characters/outfits instead of just re-making all the old ones, and I appreciate it 'cause it will save me money.

Of all the nicknames for Hasbro this is the most odd.

So no matter how good a figure is, if it's 'new' then it isn't worth having?
Strange philosophy, but then then that's your perogative. If enough people think the same then it's more figures for the rest of us! I'll be glad to army-build 'Bazooka' and 'Para' Cobras with far less 'competition'.

Yeah, I hope a lot of people will feel this way, because I want Hasbro to come out with new stuff - but I'd also like to be able to find them in the stores. So, the more people miffed by change should = more stock in the toy aisle.

Well as a M.A.S.K. collector, I am happy to see Hasbro pay homage to a toy line that was a good idea and partially well executed by making Matt Trakker. Who knows maybe with the incredible reaction towards this joe line they may look into other 80's lines that need a restructured rerelease.
As for the army building.. I like the idea of other classes of regular cobra troops other than just the normal troop and officer.
Besides.. all those specialist vipers (Alley, Heat, Frag..etc..etc..) had to have started and gotten experience from somewhere other than just being an officer or reg. troop.

I dig the new Joes coming that don't have ARAH counterparts. I'm glad to see Wraith and Cobra Flint et al. Don't get me wrong, I still want my Recondo and Tunnel Rat... but some of those late 80's Joe and Neon Cobras, may they please never see the day-glo light of day!
