I Brake For Asari!

1. DVD Lady Jaye....amazing. The figure I always wanted.
2. Torpedo...Exemplifies what GI Joe 3 3/4 inch line should be about. Awesome accessories and playability..truly modern looking.
3. Snow Serpent...My favorite ARAH troop builder revamped for the modern era. All the cool gear of the original updated and made more functional..especially the pack.
4. Snow Job...pretty much the same reason as Torpedo.
5. Firefly comic pack version...added playability of a good version 1 with better colors and gear....modernized and looking bad*&^.
Not so much:
1. Duke v1...ugggghhhhh.
2. Rock & Roll...don't like the head, hate the gun, really hate the oversized chain ammo on him.
4. Cobra Commander...Legions pack. It just looks bad IMO. His head looks smaller than usual...black really must be slimming.
5. DDP Storm Shadow...yeah he has neat weapons and a good v2 backpack, but he looks like an S & M freako.

stuff I don't like:
1.) I don't like that after Major Bludd the backing-cards dropped the nice looking silver foil 25th Anniversary logo and went to the white logo with the goofy "AS SEEN ON THE TV SHOW" or "AS SEEN IN THE COMICS" thingys
2.) Duke arms. Enough already.
3.) The fact that new concept characters like Para-Vipers, Matt Trakker, Cobra Divers, etc. get figures but classic, highly demanded Joes do - such as Zap, Ripcord, Recondo, Cover Girl
4.) The sometimes rediculous kitbash figures. Like Cutter with a Gung-Ho head or Leatherneck with Buzzer's torso. Good Lord, Hasbro. Is a body-part mold THAT expensive to make?!?
5.) here's a little thing: I wish that the Target exclusive figures came with battle stands and that the Cobra battle stands had two foot pegs like the Joe ones do now.

From what I've seen so far:
#1 improved figure would be Snake Eyes (all black). Just an awesome looking figure. I love that print ad that has the original next to the new. It's amazing the difference.
#1 vehicle would be Clutch and the V.A.M.P.
I'm disappointed in the updated H.I.S.S., compared to the other 25th vehicles this one just doesn't have a "wow" factor. It seems kind of plan and boring, doesn't look like it got updated at all. Here's hoping Arctic HISS is an improvement on it.

Web Gear: To a person whose ability to customize is limited to unscrewing stuff, exchanging web gear is so much fun. LOL.
The Main G.I. Joes: So far all my favorite Joes look awesome. I love how Duke, Snake Eyes, Gung Ho, Roadblock, Scarlett, Flint, (DVD Pack) Lady Jane and Flint turned out.
Scarlett and DVD Pack Lady Jane: It's so awesome when your girl figures look like girls and not hideous troll beasts. LOL.
Packaging: I didn’t like the 25th silver foil cards, but I LOVE the white cards; the sense of nostalgia of seeing them on the pegs is almost overwhelming. LOL.
Vehicles: I'm just glad they are re-releasing some of them. I always wanted a Striker, but never had one before; now I get a second chance.
Stands: I wish the stands were flat and always had two pegs (especially the Cobra ones).
Paint: Some of the paint (especially chrome silver sections) rub off too easily IMO. Some of my Ninja swords’ paint is coming off just from taking them out of the scabbard only once.
Availability: So hard to find single carded Snake Eyes and Storm Shadows (not including Wave 7 Snakes or Black Ninja-ku) at retail. I wish they would include multiple of each of the “popular” figures in every case instead of doubling up on the troop builders.
Price: Wal-mart is the only place that sells them under 8 bucks now. Damn.
Peg Warming: Go away Wild Bill!!! LOL.

The open palm is great for holding larger rifles (and the ones with grenade launchers.
Then there's Duke Hands, which goes without saying, makes the baby Jesus cry.
I see what you did there.
