One thing I like about the 25th line is that we are seeing cartoon versions of the characters and I love that. I like my vintage figs but only have my cobra army on display and a few recarded figures. Everything else is 25th and it looks better.

thanks guys! i ask because I use to own every "i should have said" single carded figure released but loose from 1982-1986. When i got married and wife wanted a house, i had to sell that collection as well as my star wars collection to come up with down payment on house. I miss my RAH collection (posted picks of them below), but when 25th line came out, i was wowed because of not only the new sculpts of old figures, but the packaging was also the old school packaging! best of both worlds! right now on ebay 1982-87 GI Joe - Cobra - 67 figure - 48 file cards -lot - eBay (item 260275008370 end time Aug-22-08 11:00:00 PDT) , there is this lot that i am eyeing and can only get it if i sell my 25th line. I am going to stick with the 25th line!

I like the 25th alot. Although the ARAH gets my vote. They had a larger range of figures and vehicles. Plus they were more well stocked in stores. They also offered so many mail away promos that the 25th just does not have.

There are a lot of newer collectors or collectors who jumped back in when the 25A line launched, so my guess is that 25A will win here hands down. I am not ashamed to say I am old skool, so RAH for me.
Don't hate me because you got banned from a Toy Forum.

I'd say the vintage RAH but then again I have most of the figures from those years already . . .

Thankfully I don't have to make that choice!
But if I did, I'd go with RAH. I think the nostalgia will always hold for them, but the 25th will always be just another "new" (but well done) line.

Itd have to be RAH,the 25th figures are far superior but the RAH ones are classic.
I would be so happy just to have those
