Cartoon versions for me as well as the classic versions,I never really got into the comic so I can live without them.

Well looking at the cartoon Lady Jaye and Destro I like them better. Comic Duke looks better than the cartoon one.

Both... though I really love the comic versions most.
I'd actually like to see more Devil's Due uniforms... especially toward the end of the series. When the Joe's actually looked like a military unit... and Cobra Commander looked like an evil terrorist dictator.

Cartoon for me. I always wanted a figure how it was colored on the show ie Zartan, Serpentor, Major Bludd, Lady Jaye.

DVD Pack Destro, Lady Jaye, and the MASS crystals Cobra Commander are cartoon colors.
Neon Duke and Cobra Commander are comic colors......
I'll stick with the cartoon figures.

I don't know which option I fit into. I prefer my 25th figures to be updates of the originals, however, I do like the comic or cartoon specific figures such as comic Fred/CG or Cartoon Lady Jaye, or Diver Baroness.
What I don't need are 27 of the same character in differing shades of black/grey/blue to link to the comics/cartoon images.

Looking back at some of the comic coloring, Marvel may not have had a drug testing policy in the past, but I would still collect both.

It's a mixed bag for me. I guess it depends on which I felt the character was better portrayed in.
For example. Lady Jaye was better in the cartoon as was flint.
Snake Eyes was far better in the comic as was storm shadow.
I do like the original 13 with a touch of red on the collars like the comic. And then when it came to the neon/crazy colored vipers I always thought they looked better in the comics than the cartoons.

I'd rather they be accurate to the original figs above all else, in 99% of the cases.
Cartoon look seems to suit action figures better though. Comic colours can be pretty wacky sometimes - what I hate is that Hasbro seems pretty slavish to them. For example, purple or blue might be used to depict black or shadow, but Hasbro goes ahead and paints the figure like that (Destro for example, or check out some of those comic-pack Stormtroopers). I don't like that.
It happens with the cartoon as well sometimes but not quite as extreme. Guess the cartoon had more colours to play with and could be a little more accurate.
Please check out http://hmcsgreatadventure.com/ - it's a mix of sci-fi, humour and the friggin' Royal Canadian Navy, eh!
